[Redial Poll] User feedback/idea thread.

As the name implies, discussion of general topics occurs here.

[Redial Poll] User feedback/idea thread.

Postby Harbinger » January 14th, 2008, 9:48 pm

As per the 2008 thread, we'd like to add some new features this year. Some are common sense - like fixing various bugs in the skin, etcetera - but others haven't even been discussed yet.

This is everyone's chance to help contribute; ideas posted here will be considered (serious suggestions only, please) and perhaps implemented down the line. We make no promises that ideas, chosen or not, *will* be implemented, though, as this site is a hobby for us and we all have lives.

That aside, go ahead - what new feature or idea do you have for the site? Some new examples include more forums (like the AE one), a new tool, or whatever else you can think of.

instead of one annoyingly long thread for music, movies and tv. How about an entertainment forum where specific albums and shows can be discussed in their own threads.

So I guess Mak DOESN'T get the credit after all. Initial reaction to CK's idea = positive.

I disagree with the rep idea - loads of people (myself included) just turn rep off anyway, so why bother to include it?

Also, rep just encourages fireworks, as all-out arguments are the most efficient way to gain rep. Personally I don't think that flames, flamebait or trolling are bad things for forums, in moderation, sometimes they kick life into threads. However, I wouldn't want to see it widespread - after all, this is Redial, not Alliance Politics.

I was going to suggest recruiting Lene, but since she's already here...

...let's open a gallery for her (and possibly others) to post their art, perhaps?

[Edit]

I also oppose rep as pointless and potentially problematic. I mean really, what good did it ever do on the TDZK boards?

I feel abused :cry:

Seriously though, remember the Polls thread? People will negrep you just because they can.

Though I suppose some might argue that that's a good case to include it :P

Filter's already been mentioned, it should be user-selectable, but isn't for some reason...

We're working on it.

If we can't fix it, then yeah, we'll probably just turn it off.
