PlanetCrap's Request-a-Feature Thread
December 27th 2003, 23:13 CET by zimbardo_ugly

You know we need one of these.

I'll start off by kindly pointing how useful it would be to make the web interface display the last X (configurable) posts in a thread along with the unread threads, so that I can see what the first displayed poster is jibbleing about without manually shaving the address to the offset and lowering the post number. Also, it would be neat if those posts already read would be marked somehow (perhaps tinted background / font). Thank you.

Well, two things I've always though would be useful are a more detailed view of the archives: topic titles and the summaries, along with some sort of filter for topics so you don't have to dig through the whole list.

Also, it would be cool if the search function would finally be implemented on PC (it's been 'in hiding' for some time, but it no longer works, unfortunately).

Hmm.  I like it PC how it is.  The only useful thing I can think of is to display the name of the person with the newest entry.  Then when there is 1 new entry by favicon I know that I can wait a while before clicking into the thread.

An "X unread" link on the archive would make tracking that thread easier, beyond that I'm happy and give thanks to our benevolent fuhrer.

Someone linked to a thread some time ago about how Internet messageboards give rise to issues with the userbase because there are features to do everything for everyone.

I like to think that the reason people are so smart here is because they know how to write the /urk] tags!

Also, I want no new features, so I voted no on this topic!

Thread = article, of course.

I also like how the feature that drives users to forget the preview button makes them look like the perfect asses.

Above and beyond the already perfect asses that they assuredly are.

The only thing this site possibly needs would be a quote of the nanosecond... and maybe a search utility, assuming it didn't slow the site down like the textads already seem to.

I just want to know what schardt.de has to do with anything.

You DARE to worship a god other than Allah? Allah does not know who this "Ctulhu" character is, kufr, but when he finds out he is going to kick that Jew deity down a flight of fucking stairs.

The only thing I'd like to see here is some sort of flood protection so if someone posts like 5 times in a row it will not allow posts from their IP for an hour or two.  And yes, this is directly related to the favicon idiot.  

IMO, forums are best if they tolerate even the insanely stupid (eg. Lexx/Doom For Columbine guy) as even discussions borne of stupidity can often touch on interesting points and alternate views; but useless space spamming really serves no purpose at all.

This is the best forum software in the world. All it needs is /ignore support.

Also, silently disable voting privileges for people who submit and vote for clearly stupid topics.

Specific to the software:

1. Small icons for formatting. You've probably seen them in other forum software like vBulletin on phpBB. You select the text to format and click the "quote" button or "bold" or whatever.
2. An ignore function. I wouldn't use it, but it'd be a nice option for others to have access to. It might cut down on scroll wheel jokes, too, which would make it worth it right there.
3. Flood protection. As YF said above, some people just pointlessly spam. The forum software should automatically stop that.
4. Having the forum remember your preference for viewing the Archives (it currently doesn't remember if you selected "View unread topics only" between sessions.
5. If the submission bin is not going to be altered, I would like to see its voting mechanism made completely transparent. That is, there should always be an accurate tally of votes for and against a topic with an indicator of how many votes are needed to get the topic voted in/out. Example:

My Life at the Wang Factory by The_Loller
Current votes:
YES - 10
NO - 18
Total votes needed for successful submission or dismissal: 30

6. Quote of the Nanosecond.
7. Some kind of search function.
8. Lots and lots of emoticons that would randomly pop up in posts by Bailey, Warren or jafd. Or perhaps just this being appended to the last sentence in each post they make: LOL! :D

Specific to the site:

Allowing a few people to write topics and push them through without having to go through the bin. These people would be chosen by morn, Gabe or The Illuminati.

This isn't a democracy anyway, I'm kind of suprised this topic even made it in.  The powers that be won't make changes unless they want to.  And why should they?

I think the madness at the topic is because this is just a wishlist of things that will never everever happen, ever.

morn posted a "requests for PC" topic near the launch of PC 6.0 and implemented several things people asked for (I had specifically asked to have the links mirrored at the bottom of the page, for example), so there is some faint hope that some of the requests might be implemented. Regardless, I don't see this topic roaming the streets and beating up little old ladies, so I'm not sure why anyone would have a problem with it.

And I forgot one that has always been a peeve of mine:

9. The ability to set the timestamp of posts to your local timezone.

Yeah, if any of these requests can be implemented that would of course be the best christmas present any of us could ever ask for. But even if they took away features, this would still be the best forum software in the world.

as someone mentioned above (I'm lazy), quoting would be nice.  And flood protection isn't all bad, though not really that big a deal at the moment.

Short answer.

Morn has a life now, new features will be slow in fortcoming.

You may freely blame Gabe.

Not "realize" as much as "didn't realize" to be honest.  But merci beaucoup anyway, my days of having to manually enter an offset are gone and the future is bright.

If you have to live vicariously through Joker, I think you should introduce your mouth to the business end of a shotgun.
