DLP Improvement

Feedback and prioritization of the DLP Improvement Thread add your ideas about how to improve DLP and vote on your favorites. Re-add any I’ve missed. Any feedback you have is welcome.

If at all possible, add every idea you have. This will be a persistent system for feedback on DLP.

Democratization, in my DLP?? ಠ_ಠ

I have an idea...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    Warn users when they make annoying and cringeworthy spelling and grammar errors. Could of/should of should be trivial to catch since they are never correct.

    • Disable pictures

      The ability to disable all pictures in posts, sigs and avatars for the iPhone style layout. Or just in general.

      • Thread icon indicates new chapters

        Change the colour/image of the picture next to the thread for around a week if there's a new post tagged as a chapter on a wbA thread. That way you can tell, at a glance, whether the author has updated as opposed to the thread being bumped by a commenter.

        • Extending the "mark as read button" to individual threads

          I think Ellisande was the one who originally suggested this. Instead of marking the whole forum as read, one could use the lightning bolt that's already next to each thread.

          Also, perhaps a brief primer/sticky/addendum to the welcome PM? that explains all the awesome stuff in the UI, including New Posts.

          • Flagging

            The ability to flag a post to alert the poster that they need to check their spelling, format, or that maybe they need to catorgorise the story they posted.

            • Post Formatting for Easier Reading

              We need the ability to manipulate the formatting of forum posts FFN style. The ability to change the text color, background color, text size, spacing, text type, paragraph width ,etc.

              This would make reading the stories posted within the forum a lot easier to read, as currently the white on green, no spacing, etc is terrible.

              • Favourite Threads Listing

                Basically allowing people to track whichever threads they add to the list, and giving them a page in which they are all listed regardless of section. Not just useful for seeing updates in those threads but also being able to go back and re-read them without having to do a search (or even remembering that it's there)

                Sortable by date, reply count, views, ect.

                • Library Posting Format

                  What I'd like to see is a warning at the bottom of all new threads created in the for review section requiring it to be marked each time.

                  Posts older than 30 days have the warning already: http://i.imgur.com/D4ncI.jpg

                  What I want to see is: http://i.imgur.com/kpXKP.jpg

                      • Reduce the time to 5 days for "Old Thread Warning" message in the "Reply to Thread" to appear.

                        Currently the "Old Thread Warning" functionality kicks in for threads with no activity for 30 days. Reducing that time will surely result in reducing irrelevant posts, or threads bumping, from people posting with the only reason to say how much they wish this story to be updated.
                        If anyone has anything worth adding to the discussion, then they can afford the extra click to agree to reviving an old thread.

                        In addition, the warning itself could be worded a bit more harshly, so those who are thick enough to necro with retarded posts even after reading it, should not be…
