Forum Feedback/Suggestions List  

Greetings!

Below is a list of all suggestions made on the Feedback Forum (https://asgardia.space/en/forum/forum/feedback-11) and in this thread (in no particular order). Let me know if I missed something.

Forum - UI Improvements

  1. There is too much space between each subforum. Since we have so many of them, we should reduce that spacing.

Forum - New Features

  1. Add a Quick Reply to posts, so we don't have to load a new window when we want to reply to posts.
  2. Add Collapse/Expand to the forums. Although each forum is important, there are subjects that people will not read, ever. By allowing users to collapse selected forums, that would reduce to amount of scrolling necessary to navigate on the forums. This should be saved between sessions so the user doesn't have to do that every time he/she logs in.
  3. Add Signatures. I think Signatures are a very convenient way to easily share information across the forums. These should have rules so they don't become too distractful or disrupt the forums (for example, not allowing gifs).
  4. Private Messages by Aragorn92

  5. Allow users to change the forums' Timezone.
  6. Allow users to Subscribe to Subforums.
  7. Add a Report button so users can report posts, threads, or users to the staff.

If the Forum allows Signatures, shouldn't there be also some more basic information about the User be possible? (definently not standard but can be activated by the user) Like a Profile Page.

Your other topics are also very similar to the current forum software standards. Private Messaging though could be really important to the mod team. I like them and find them necessary.

Cap 19, 00 / Dec 20, 16 23:19 UTC

Kudos for linking back to existing threads. :) I concur with your other points too.

Cap 20, 00 / Dec 21, 16 00:02 UTC

Firstly congratulations for getting a forum up and running .! I am certain that much more can be achieved to identify and further our goals with this ..

Re Language options. As many Asgardians do not have english as their first language , for example the largest group is China with 130,000+ do we have other language options planned for this forum?

Are we planning an additional forum to cater for this or can we create boards within this forum that support non Latin lettering? English only is discriminatory to a large numbers of citizens. This maybe an issue for the Ministry oif Communication but as it is not running yet the creators of this forum may wish to act..

Cap 20, 00 / Dec 21, 16 00:19 UTC

Thanks for contributing with your ideas! I went ahead and added them to my list.

Cap 20, 00 / Dec 21, 16 00:36 UTC

I understand the point the using only English can seem discriminatory, but I think it more important to use one language because then people will be splintered off into segregated groups which defeats the whole purpose of a collective/community.

Cap 20, 00 / Dec 21, 16 01:05 UTC

@Comet Girl: Agreed, but at least what I was thinking for localization is to translate just the tool. English would still be required in most of the forums, as these are the rules.

Cap 21, 00 / Dec 22, 16 01:19 UTC

hi to all, is there a notification that we receive when someone answer our post or our comments?

Cap 21, 00 / Dec 22, 16 01:41 UTC

@Mau: Not at the moment, as far as I know.

Cap 21, 00 / Dec 22, 16 17:56 UTC

Their should be a search system, so we can search "terms" in posts, because.... we will be quickly lost.

We should use some elasticsearch motor, based on lucene, for full text-search.

Please no smiley, enforce emojis. Its 2016, not 1990s.

Cap 21, 00 / Dec 22, 16 19:53 UTC

Maybe a very stupid remark. As all Asgardians on this forum have a bright FFFFFF background, i give some remarks.

Would a bright background consume not more electricity? It is good to read at the start, but after some time the eyes get tired?

Maybe some less brightness will do? Like for example EEEEEE?

Just my 2 cents.

Grtz, Dirk.
