We are planning a major upgrade of the site and during the upgrade we have the opportunity to make changes to the appearance and functionality of the site. The changes that are already planned are due to the recent theft of our database to create a nearly identical pirated site. We are going to shore up some security shortcomings of the current configuration, and also make the site look a little more inviting.

One feature that is high on our list of proposed enhancements is the addition of integrated peer to peer and group video chat. This is something I have already investigated and plan on integrating as a Phase 2 of this project.

There was some discussion today about thumbs up buttons. It sounds like the general attitude of the site is that it's not beneficial.

Aside from what is listed above, does anyone want to suggest any enhancements or features they would like to see on this site?

1) In the message editor, is there any way to make the font bigger? I'm an old lady, and I don't like having to whip out my reading glasses to reply to a post.

2) Whatever happened to the "restricted" site?  My profile still says "Approval pending".

Maybe when there is a lot more members, we could have a bookmark feature like the other place? I found it useful for digging up old post of interest.

One thing I miss badly is the "Recent" tab that they have on a different forum. That was the tab I clicked more than any other tab over there.

It would take you straight to the last 20 or so threads that people had posted it, all listed on one page. It showed who made the post and what time. So you could tell if someone had posted a response to something you've written. It was the best tab on the whole site and made things very easy to find.

1. I'll check on font size. Even with the current software, I think there's a way to adjust it.

2. The staff will have to check into this. How long has it been sitting? This should be able to be resolved before the software update.

The new software does support bookmarking. I will make sure it is enabled when the update happens.

Ashes onto our heads, lots of ashes onto our heads!  With all this turmoil the last days, we forgot to look into that request section, and did not approve anybody!

There is a feature called "Recent Activity" that does exactly this.

Are you sure?  I just checked my profile and it still says "Approval Pending".

First of all, thanks for all the staff has done and is doing. I don't care about the thumbs up especially, either way. One thing I would like is to see messages received and sent ones related to that on the same thread. They are in two locations now, and I haven't been able to change that. For your consideration!

That was pretty high on my own list of desires and will be addressed in the upgrade.

Yes we do have the Recent Activity tab, but it's not the same as what they have over there. I wish I could figure out how to post a dang picture because I'd take one of their tab so you could see what I'm talking about. I really think you'd like it if you could see it.

No, what I meant was that the new software has something called Recent Activity that does what you are looking for.

[member=3]Katie[/member] , is there a good reason for having to wait between posts? I sometimes post quick, but it makes you wait a certain time between posts. It's a pain. Is that a anti spam thing?  By the way, thanks for the work on the new site roll out.

@Moni I am not sure. I haven't ran into that before. It could be an anti-spamming thing, but it might also be the software or server not responding fast enough. Let's see how it is after the software upgrade.

Gives me a message of having to wait 180 seconds between posts so I'd  guess it's a anti spam thing.  It also seems that every time you try the counter resets every time you try and are too soon

@TonyaJanelle and @Moni , I will talk to the web developer who is doing the software conversion to make sure that doesn't carry over.

Katie, I love the site and all the work you all have done....but just one little irritant. Every time I log in I have to do it twice, the first try always says the system has a problem and the second time gets me in. Is this fixable?
