Poll: Do you like polls?
Yes - 28 votes
No - 7 votes

I haven't been around much because of university, but have the next 4 weeks free to do things - including coding for the site. I bascially figured here would be a good place for you all to post your site suggestions, and we'll take a look at whether or not they should/could be coded. The list below will show any features that are in progress or that have been completed.

I seem remember there being a "site suggestion" thread knocking around which had a lot of suggestions - can't remember where it is though. If anyone could point it out to me, that'd be great. For that reason, I've stickied this thread so that it doesn't get lost!

Cheers.

Thank you Flava. Been waiting for that.

I think there was a thread in the admin forum with a few things...

Heh yeah I think people have been asking for pages on mail for the last 2-3 years - figured it was about time I did it

The settings page is also no longer restricted to VIP members - the only reason it was given to VIP members was for testing purposes, and I think nearly 1 year is enough testing for that. Can now also remove favourites from your favourite projects list.

Ability to de-fav projects. I get updates sometimes for projects I couldnt really care about anymore.

Ability to hide user status on Active users list. I dont see why only the admin should have this privilege, if I don't want people watching my every move, I should have that right. Otherwise remove it from the admins, why the need to hide?

Lol, I didn't know admins could hide from the active user list.

Umm no The info on the active page is pretty limited in the first place. And besides thats why the page is so popular it is fun to see what other people are up to.

Only reason why the admins activity is blocked is because we test out certain sections of the site (new pages) we dont want other folks to see yet I rather would like the admins to be unblocked also but there ya have it

youre joking right? tdc shows the first 3 bits of every users ip address. i wouldnt call that "limited". a regular user shouldnt be able to see ANY part of another users ip address. also, whether its fun to see what others are doing or not, its a little thing called privacy.

i'd rather see a list of active users in one of the side bars than a page fully devoted to active users and what each and every one of them is doing and how long theyve been there.

I like the actives page, but there's no need for non-admins to see IP addresses, and I guess the last-visited page thing could go. It's occasionally handy though. Like when you see someone on a projcomment page, you know they're replying to something you posted. Or when they're checking the DC Mail you sent them.

Doesn't GB have a track user page?

Actually I agree about the IP address option, that should be removed for non admins maybe Flava can do something about that. Good observation

Other then that I stand behind what I said before the active page is pretty handy to see what someone else is doing, it is hardly that detailed (doesnt give out what particular download or forum page you are looking at) but it is just enough to see what general page someone is visiting.

I like the Active Users Page. It is nice to see what the community is upto. Too many users complain about the Community dying out and i for one would like to know how many people are on the site and exactly what they are looking at. If you ask me it doesn't show enough at the minute.

Look at Clickteams Active users Page - http://www.clickteam.com/epicenter/ubbthreads.php?ubb=online

It shows EXACTLY ehich page they are on and it even shows Guests!! If you are concerned about your privacy log off before looking at the posts.

With regards to recommendations for the site I agree with Jon Lambert about giving everyone access to create polls but they would need to be moderated so that they are not abused. An option to sell back your tags/custom rating (at a loss - for example half of what they cost you) for when you get bored of them or a small fee to change your Custom Rating to something else would be great.

About the Arcade button at the top.. is that going to be merged into the Navigation Bar at some point because it just looks out of place on any of the themes available on the site.
