Forum ToDo List
< on 5/16/2003 1:35 AM >
Posted on Forum:
 
This list is off the other board but I figured I'd put it here.
This is a list of things left for Av to do on this forum. If you have any suggestions please post them here.

Sometime:

Personal Forum options, including:
- Customizable # of posts per page
- Customizable # of threads per page
- Allow/Disallow forum members from sending you emails


Create a button, allowing a poll to be added to a thread after it has been posted. This ability already exists, a button simply needs to be created.

Admin Features to Complete:

Admins can mass-mail for news/important announcements

Future Features:

Make help page
Send email if someone replies
Devoicing Members -- they can't post for x days
Guest Map feature -- allows members to mark their location on a map
DrawAPic Feature -- draw a diagram and attach it to your post

Done:

IM notify software or somesuch -- lets you know when you have a new forum IM
Front page statistics, like # of members and so on
Deleting members
Banning members
Fixed bug in Encyclopedia where some threads would stay read after you read them.
Allowed subscribing to countries/provinces/cities/locations in the DB, which all show together on your forum index page.
Created Thread 'Merge' feature
Finish search feature
Add feature to Profile "Find all posts by this user"
Deleting posts no longer requires the page to reload.
When a thread is moved, a marker in the original category appears for 2 days, with the text "Moved: (name of thread)". This lets people know their thread was moved and not erased.
Memberlist page now displays column for Rating
Member Profile Page now displays age in years, and rating.
Changing of your own password
Changing of your own email
Owners of private boards can administrate the posts/threads like a moderator
UserGroup feature added for easy grouping of users (for moderating)
Updated admin functions with purdy icons!
Small icons in the top corner show on which forum a particular thread was posted. The tooltip on the icon tells you the name of the forum, and clicking on it switches you to viewing the forum in that interface. All posts created before this feature was implemented are shown with a grey circle.
Automated pics uploading creates thumbnails for pictures larger than 400 pixels, allowing viewers to easily click on them.
Sped up the forum_showthreads.asp page by about 200% with better-optimized MySQL statements and table joins!
Locking threads
Moving threads to other forums
Thread recap below reply box
Upgraded the 'reply' button in Instant Messages -- it now doesn't re-quote something that was already quoted.
The mail system now has different mailboxes, storage of SENT messages, the ability to file messages, the ability to delete messages, and the ability to empty your trash. REPLY also quotes the author and creates an appropriate subject. More to come!
In the more complex interface (not infiltration.org), threads in which you have posted now appear with a small yellow sliver on the round icon. This should help keep track if you've enlighted the forumgoers with your opinion there yet or not.
Modifying the subject of the first post in at thread also modifies the subject of the thread itself
Polls / Voting
Made the personal icons 100x100, which isnt that much bigger but gives room for more creativity
Make search feature
Make thread list display in more than one page
Signing up of @thesz.com emails
Uploading of custom icons onto server
Instant Message inbox / sending of private forum-based messages
Prevent double posts
Sending emails
Editing of your own posts
Logged in users list
Deleting posts by admins
Reply button to bottom of thread
Reply with Quote
Posting in a thread moves you to that post
After editing, return to same position in original thread
Indication of which posts you've read and which you havent yet -- unread ones show with blue backgrounds
Feature to immediatly move you to the first unread post in a thread
Make preview have coloured box behind text, same size as post
Changed background of "story summary" in story threads to match thread background
Heirarchical Listing at top of thread
Thread view count
Reading thread also reads board
Current page indicator in page list
Fix [ email ] bug.
Pinnable topics
Poster-Only Topics
Custom titles on people when you donate
Star rating thingies
Admins
Moderators
Admins / Moderators can edit posts
Replace "condom" icons with splotches
Put list of moderators on front page
Fix View Last Post on Next Page Bug
Remove the "Last Edit" spam stuff
Deleting threads
Fixed bug that would let people post without logging in.
Cat list -- try to make blue thing work right.
CSSerize it!
Custom designs for different skins (UE)

Optimize "New Posts" feature for more speed
Viewing of profiles
Fix bug with write thread window
Fix thread page count bug

Added a poll / voting system, which allows you to create a poll when you are creating a thread.

Future additions:

Ability to change your vote later
Ability to edit the choices in the poll if no one has yet voted
Ability to add a poll to a thread after it has been created

Av, how 'bout being able to delete private messages after you've read them?

Added a new feature:

By default, when you attach images to the post, they would come up in the post, meaning they download automatically. This has been changed so instead a small link is created. Optionally you can still force the image to show up by selecting the checkbox in the upload dialog.

Good idea. It was annoying to have to upload the thing, preview your post, copy the picture's url and then link it to a little bit of text just to get the same result.

I just had an idea. You should add an option in profiles where people can tell what their typical connection type or speed is. This way we can feel sorry for the 28.8s and not send them huge files and whatnot. Perhaps just a pulldown menu with "dialup/the slowass so-called T1 they have where I work" and "broadband". This could display in the box of info next to the avatar. I think it'd be useful.

I dispise that T1 with a passion. sucky shared single pair.

AV will you be attempting to allow us to delete our own posts at some time... i really think this would be useful... I know I've posted a couple times and wanted to delete it afterwards..... I know you striked it, but I really think the capability of us to delete our own posts would be a really good thing.

Why is marijuana not legal? Why is marijuana not legal? Its a natural plant that grows in the dirt. You know what's not natural, 80 year old dudes with hardons. Thats not natural, but we got pills for that. We're dedicating all our resources to keeping the old guys erect but we're puttin people in jail for smoking something that grows in the dirt.

no, because then people would post shit, someone would reply, and then they'd delete it.

I would put my vote into setting up the ability to delete our private messages from our message boxes... they are really starting to build up...

Hey AV, maybe you could create a gallery where every user could submit one picture with a brief description (when and where it was taken and with what). It might be a bit of a space eater but it would give some of those explorers out there who don't have a website a place to share a least their favourite picture.
