Title: Feature Requests

What features do people want? The more people we have clamoring for something the better we can prioritize our time.

I would want google searching to function. I don't know how this works. If they can be asked to re-index a page or if it is done automatically eventually. But it seems like they need to rebuild all their data over geekhack.

Also, I tried to find some way of getting in contact with a moderator. Didn't try too hard but I couldn't find any list of moderators for PM'ing or any e-mail address or anything.

Better PM system
Title: Re: Feature Requests
Post by: Icarium on Sat, 21 July 2012, 03:56:30
I am really missing the spy. Other systems to get a quick overview of the large amount of content like thread subscription better ajax preloading and such would be great as well.

To elaborate a bit:
The spy allows looking at the content of the post without clicking on it.
Subscriptions are sort of the opposite they help ignore everything except the threads I know I am interested in.
Ajax preloading would help because if the unread posts site was more responsive it would almost be a spy.

Ideally I would like a list of topics with activity and a short extract from the last post. The data should be preloaded so I can quickly check the threads by clicking on it. The list should also have buttons for 'subscribe thread', 'ignore thread' and 'mark thread read.
hm...I had other ideas but I forgot them while typing this. :)
I know I am asking a lot, I am just trying to put down what would be ideal in the long run.

I just want the topics with new posts to be bold again. It's really throwing me off not having that. Also, a "First Unread Post" button within the main forum view would be awesome.

I'm seeing a favicon:
http://geekhack.org/favicon.ico

I think we should have a list of admins/moderators, if users need something, they can PM one. In the meantime, I noticed that moderator names show up in blue on the users active list at the bottom of the main forum page. Admins are red, but it's so close to the default orange, that it's hard to tell the difference. (I'm using the "nostalgic theme".)

Title: Re: Feature Requests
Post by: fartq on Sat, 21 July 2012, 12:11:54
as with all other subforum ideas, until you can show that there's enough traffic for an entire subforum dedicated to it, i would prefer that people just start threads (call it a megathread if you want) in the closest applicable forum

I would love an inline attachments feature. Unless you already have that functionality but I just don't see it?

Another feature request would be to be able to customize our custom titles, or have them removed all together. Let the moderators and admins set custom titles so that it's a little more unique, maybe?

It would also be nice to move the Search box out of the collapsible header and into the menu bar (like GH vB) and also have the unread posts link outside of that header.  It takes up a lot of space and that's the only thing I have it expanded for.  Anyone share my opinion?  ;)

And make PM notifications more obvious - I'm waiting on replies from multiple people and just tried to test-PM myself, you don't even know there is a message unless you manually go to check them.

There seems to be more than one issue here.  For one, sending yourself a test message won't result in a new message notification.  This is because after you send it, you end up back in your message list.  At the bottom is the message that you just sent.  Therefore to SMF, it is "read".  I'm not saying this is good, but that is what is happening.  There is more to it though, because I notice that I don't see the notification even when I am not in the message list.  Tapatalk might have something to do with it.

Anyway, we'll look into it.

Did you try all the themes under Profile -> Forum Profile -> Look and Layout -> Current theme (change) ?
Yes, of course. In most of the themes, the orange clashes with other colours and it strains my eyes.
I liked the old theme, so I tried "Nostalgia", but the white and orange don't work, so I reverted to the default theme. However, I find that orange on beige can sometimes still be hard to read with the default theme.

OK, I added showthread.php glue for starters.  You'll get a 301, which should help the search engines along.

I don't really use mine, so I'll add my location info there.

tags/flags/whatever you want to call them.  List them horizontally above the subject column and list them in the forum description.  Make em clickable so they bring you to a page where that's the filter applied to the forum.

The hard part is getting users to assign the right tag to their post.

I'm talking non-negative connotation of homosexuality. It's plenty okay to use the word to refer to homosexuals as a matter of fact... just don't go throwing it around like an insult. I don't think that GH has a problem with that most of the time so banning the word entirely is just shoo-shooing it under the rug so we dont have to think about things.

Also, on the offchance that somebody does start talking about homosexuality in a non-negative light, the fact that the word gets censored can lead to confusion. Just my 2c.

If you read the history of the word, you will see that it did later become associated with homosexuality. But it didn't start as that. But I agree, nonetheless we shouldn't filter it out.

Notifications - your subscribed threads

A way to get to the last page in the spy. Unread replies etc all have a list of numbers of the pages in the thread which means you can click yourself directly to the last page.

If you don't get the possibility to choose the end or beginning of the thread, I think pressing the post in the spy should get you straight to the last post since that is the post in question.

I knew I had used the feature after the new forum came back up. In the thread listing in the forum of your thread you will see the little "Remove topic" and "Lock topic" icons in the right most column. That lock icon actually unlocks your thread even though it says Lock this after you have locked it.

That's a different view... Consistency has been an issue with SMFs presentation.

What my image is showing is what I referred to from the beginning, and I believe that is also what mkawa was talking about when asking about the "mislabeled 'lock topic' button", but I could be wrong about what mkawa meant.
The lock icon is still mislabeled in the Nostalgia theme too, mkawa.

I would like to request the lock and remove options be inside the first post of every thread for the thread starter. It was kind of confusing finding a way to lock the thread even with those two options, but I think it's because I am used to the "edit op to lock"-way of doing it.

That being said, I don't see what Computer-Lab in Basement mentioned in his post, so consistency does seem to be an issue. I imagine it being a setting that's different in some of the sub-forums.
^ I checked this again, and I am sorry, but I do have those buttons at the bottom of the topic. I was looking at the bottom of my first post for some reason. I'll keep the misinformation there, but I'll strike it through.

I don't even have that column on the right with the icons like Glissant does.

And what's with everyone using Thoriated? Use Nostalgia, people! :p

After using DT for a while I find the default theme to be nicer to look at for hours on end (did I just admit to spending hours at a time here? ;) )
But OK, I'll use Nostalgia for the next few days, just for you J.D.

Post by: Ragnorock on Mon, 27 August 2012, 03:23:22
This will probably get ignored, but I just thought I'd suggest something I just thought of. I was thinking that if you clicked on the sender/recipient in the inbox to show conversation history with that person instead of their profile it would be extremely useful and would make the new PM system much more viable/easy to use. As it stands you have to run a search every time (same as the old one I know) but you also have to input a character, so I have to hope that somewhere in their PM they typed an a. Lol. In addition the search function is on a separate page etc and it just involves a lot more clicking and navigating than it used to.

Anyways, if that's too much to ask that's fine, but hopefully we could at least get rid of requiring a search term when the user is specified just for peace of mind.

* I saw a "news" item that the Search box is context sensitive. Is this not old news?

* I think that it would be better if there was a label next to (or inside) the Search box that told what the context is. That way, we would have "knowledge in the world".
My favourite forum softwares have search boxes (or popdown windows with search boxes) next to the things they search. One box is at the top and just says "Search". One is at the forum heading "Search in forum" and one is at the thread heading "Search in thread". There is no ambiguity.

* Whenever there is a new news item, please include a link to a thread where it is described in more detail and we can ask questions about it and discuss it.

U know, like every other forum on the internet with usercp, u subscribe to topics, Can just check ur usercp for updates to your subscribed topics when u login to see new replies. Alot easier to keep track of things.

rayuki, what's wrong with clicking notifications to get exactly that? It's just called "Notifications" instead of "Subscriptions" in this forum software.


It shows your subscribed threads right there. Not really sure what MORE you want.


Edit: And in case you are going to start arguing with me about it not working like you want.


Click the Notifications link.
If you want to subscribe to all threads you post in then choose the option that says "Turn notification on when you post reply to a topic"
Then uncheck "When sending notification.." and choose "Nothing at all" in the "For topics and boards I've.." to not receive any email notifications.


If you only want specific threads to show up in your notifications, then choose "Notify" at the top of the thread.


And you can also subscribe to a whole forum if you want, and that forum (they call it a "board" in SMF) will show up under your subscribed threads.


Pretty neat!

To be very specific, the setting I referred to is the one that should prevent you from receiving the emails but you still end up with the subscription list shown directly below those settings.  If there is something about that list that could be tweaked to better suit this function then feel free to concisely describe it and we'll see what can be done.

A way to mark a subforum read from the index page would be nice. (It bugs me to see the unread threads even in the subs I don't really look at, so I always have to go in and mark them read...)

Or maybe in that vein, a way to hide certain subforums instead of the whole category they fall under?

Have titles of threads that are unread or have unread posts be bold. This would make it easier to distinguish. Same thing in the Topic Spy.

I find myself going through my PMs for a long time before I can find the one I'm looking for. Would there someway you can put a note onto a PM to show what it was for?

I know you can make the title to what you want, but sometimes the other person messages me with No Subject and it becomes just a little piece in a ton of PM's that I have to search for.

A "Suggest for Wiki" button/link could be neat.  Basically, if someone reads a post (or thread?) that they find important in the context of lasting reference material, they flag/vote/mark it.  Not sure where that goes, but could make for a good "triage" list where volunteers could sort/refine/filter.  Not sure if this is the right idea, but we need *something* to encourage promoting the good content that often gets buried in a few days after being posted.

I would just like the option of making a PM as read or unread. Or "NEW" like when they're fresh.

Or anything that would make a message stand out other than putting it in another folder with other messges that I don't know if I have read or checked.
Every email and PM thingy I have seen has this feature as the de facto standard. Sadly I'm just not enough of a savant to work this system the way it is designed.

I hate not being able to get back to people in the same volume and consistency that I feel is important. It just makes me really frustrated and sad.

If for some reason you happen to be in a particuarly generous mood and if for some reason I have not annoyed you then... pssst.... a proper folder system would be really nice too. Gmail actually has this. They also have labels BUT they are also quite visual.

Here is my more comprehensive list (some mentioned before)

1) read or unread option in PMs
2) Folders
3) favorites type thing
4) multi-quote button (unless I am missing something, but it's clunky and glitchy now)
5) Subscription/Notification folders this could essentially be a "favorites" type thing but imagine how easy it would be to reference or track information.

And ONE BIG THANK YOU for making the image upload and display way more intuitive and easy than it previously was after the big gh reboot. You guys are my hero for that one.

This is something I wanted to ask about also, having a dedicated button for multi-quote.

I've just been using the regular quote button for multiple posts and it seems to just add them down in the quick reply box which is ok if they are near the bottom of a thread or close together otherwise its back and forth and just odd.

I'm trying to grok your other requests:

1) You are looking for a way to mark as unread or otherwise flag a PM, yes?

2) Folder for PMs?  Labels accomplish this in a Gmail-esque way.  If you want to filter labeled PMs from your Inbox, select "Remove the inbox label when applying another label" in your settings.  That pretty much gives you Gmail labels with "auto-archive"; a.k.a. folders.

3) Are you still talking about PMs here?  Users?  Posts?  Likes?  Favorites of what?

I'm trying to grok your other requests:
Thanks buddy!
I must be doing something right if I can pull that term outta ya.  =D

1) You are looking for a way to mark as unread or otherwise flag a PM, yes?
Essentially yes I think. It's a very basic and innate part of my workflow. I just can't seem to find a way around it.
I keep trying though, but it's at the core of how I organize.

2) Folder for PMs?  Labels accomplish this in a Gmail-esque way.  If you want to filter labeled PMs from your Inbox, select "Remove the inbox label when applying another label" in your settings.  That pretty much gives you Gmail labels with "auto-archive"; a.k.a. folders.
I tried that before and for some reason it didn't work for me (or work at the time idr). I have tried it again more recently and I can get it to mostly work (with the "remove inbox label" thing ticked). The problems I keep running into is how to delete or move an item from one area and not the other. Sadly I have lost countless messages because of this.

3) Are you still talking about PMs here?  Users?  Posts?  Likes?  Favorites of what?

Oops! Pay no mind to this one, upon reflection, just jump to #5. Unless it was a moment of clarity that I had then that I do not have now.

4) Done.
Thank you so much for this one. Even though it's true that I cannot get it to work I'm very happy you implemented it.

5) Related to #3.  Please explain.
Sure, and sorry about that.
Currently (and previously?) the notifications folder is just one really long list (well, if you have many). I thought it would be great to have a folder in your menue system for the notifications. Basically you can move your subscriptions around so you can readily find them and refer to them. Coincidently like the PM system now. I think the current pm system is a great platform for this. The Notifications "inbox" would be the sme as the notifications list is now. the Folders/labels would hold like/similar topics.

A specific example would be-
Say you're interested in all things Model M and you are subscribed to many model M threads (among other things). But you are looking for just a couple specific posts you kinda remember regarding some M info. It's a daunting task looking through all of your subscriptions to find it. But if you had an "M" folder then you have a good place to start or better yet, you may have already had a more specific M folder. And the best part is... wait for it... you still have the normal notifications list, so if anyone posts in it, it still shoots to the top!
This is basically like a favorites, but with additional benefits. LuLz, "favorites with benefits".  =P

I hope that helped, sadly though I know nothing about programing, so I may have just suggested the equivalent of trying to implement time travel.

Thanks again for listening guys, it's very much appreciated.  =)

Title: Re: Feature Requests
Post by: mkawa on Fri, 10 May 2013, 21:53:36
i particularly like the tag (and further, the hashtag) model of organization of unstructured data. how would you guys feel about adding comments to your subscriptions and having the ability to put tags in those comments that could then be used to group your subscriptions together?

this would be in addition to a more generate hashtagging implementation in which basically every piece of content was mined for hashtags, which could be used to group, search, differentiate, etc.

what i see when i look at these requests is "let me structure my data more", and this can be done in a couple of ways. it can be done in a kind of ad-hoc way for each "class" of data object (eg, thread, post, private message, etc.) or it can be done uniformly, in which we just look at all of these things as big globs of text with a very simple mechanism and UI (the text itself!) that allows the creator to classify them.

Ok fair enough.

Am I just dumb or is there a way to show more posts per page? Personally I hate going to the next page. I'd set posts per page to infinity if I could... but 50 or 100 would be a nice compromise. Perhaps you don't do this due to server constraints? I really have no idea but personally I'd set it as high as I could. Not a big deal. I'm just thinking outloud again.

That's like the people on Tom's Hardware asking for the drivers for motherboard XXX before googling it (and seeing that it's on the first page of results).

Sorry man, it's okay if you're cranky, I should have looked harder.... I don't think it's the same as I did try to find it. I looked under account settings, and forum profile. I didn't realize once you're in the profile that "modify profile" was it's own link which opens up further menus. I thought I was in the "modify profile" section as it was giving me some options. When I simply mouse over profile in the main menu. Look and layout isn't an option. I should have gone deeper but please don't pretend like I didn't try at all. Of course I would google a question before blindly asking it, I am in no way like those people on tomshardware.
Oh wellz. :) Noobs be noobs, and there's nothing wrong with ignorance. :)
I am indeed a noob. Sometimes quite ignorant.

It took you longer to write that post than it would to have looked it the settings... Hint - It's under "Look and Layout"...
I did look in the settings. Evidently I am not smart enough to find it on my own. It took me about 60 seconds to write the post. I looked in the most obvious places where I thought it would be. Aka Forum Profile/Account Settings. I'm not sure why this modify profile drop down has seemingly redundant options. In fact, the only non-redundant options are 'look and layout' and 'buddies/ignore list' - these 2 can only be accessed from this internal menu. All the rest are either hard-coded into the top main menu or are available from the 'profile' drop down off of the main menu.

The statement "Am I just dumb or.." was my way of saying, I cannot find this. I even went on to say "I'm hoping it's here and I just can't find it"

Blah I don't know why I'm defending myself, it doesn't even mater. Sorry to annoy you; thanks for the tip. I found it now.

Don't worry about it.  If you don't have side menus turned on, the way the menus are set up in the settings pages is not coherent, it's easy to miss things.

Even if you went and looked at the help pages, the few sentences about limiting items per page is have no bold summary, like ever other setting shown there, so it too is easy to miss.

Some people just like being grumpy.

Speaking of, those settings could be a little easier to get to. Maybe when you hover over Profile, change Account Settings to Settings, then allow to hover over that and have a list of the different settings options there?

Also, could All Unread Topics be added as a drop down to Unread?

It took me a few hours in gimp... (Yeah... I still don't really know how to use gimp, but whenever I need a different sized avatar I can make it from the source file. Which means I'm not totally incompetent...)

It is a symbol that I made MANY years ago (except that the avatar version is missing the infinity symbol underneath. With how small avatars are often limited to I figured it would be best to just chop that off.) I still remember when 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' came out... The symbol for the deathly hallows was very similar... Though I suppose there were quite a few other's that were similar long before then, I never really noticed until after deathly hallows came out...

I usually proof-read mine too, but sometimes I just want to get out a few quick responses, and especially with the way I browse the forums I might send 2 or 3 posts in the space of less than a minute.

Reducing it to maybe 30 seconds would be a bit better.

But I can understand the point in having the delay in the first place.

And to be clear the posting limit is only aggravating me because both my phone and laptop seem to be getting stuck and it won't let me post at all.

But the PM delay is very aggravating....it's not like I'm spamming people, just letting people know I paid or answering questions etc.

I use ForumRunner and Tapatalk (both free versions) and like them both. I read what the paid versions offer, and at some point I may spiff the couple bucks.

Anybody have any thoughts on FREE vs. PAID Tapatalk apps?

I don't know if this has been brought up before, but could we have a larger posting box that scales with our resolution?  Here is what editing my long post in the Classifieds section looks like on a 2560 x 1440-pixel monitor

(http://i.imgur.com/0XJhQR1.jpg)

There's a LOT of wasted space and yet I have to scroll up and down on a very short window to look for various parts in the post for formatting fixes.  Just makes more sense to be able to increase the size of the posting / editing box or make it scale dynamically, if possible.

This isn't so much a feature request as it is a (possibly) fun suggestion.

A site I used to frequent used to have this system whereby you could anonymously message someone. People used to use it to tell people they liked things, or such. I'm sure some used it to say mean things (which, for some reason, I would expect to happen more often here than there, because, well... DRAMA!), but I never heard of things like that.

A thread was also created whereby people would confess things anonymously to others, who would then post the confession in the thread. It was very interesting at times.

Rowdy echos this preference - it is rare that quotes go that deep, and half the time when they do it is someone deliberately quoting quotes to get a reaction out of people.

Hmm... good point. But then again, that can still be accomplished with the "modify" feature, so I guess it wouldn't really matter...

Would really like to hear a mods perspective on this.

Unless I am mistaken and don't know how to use it, without doing anything I end up with 7 pages of watched topic all the time. Seems like all threads where I post end up there. What I want is to have control over what end up in this watched thing by flagging some threads manually.

If there's a way to achieve this with the watched feature, then I would be super happy to know how!
Title: Re: Feature Requests
Post by: esoomenona on Fri, 25 October 2013, 10:37:50
Yeah, that's how Watched seems to work.

A nice request for it would be an option similar to Notifications where you can check a box to determine whether or not you want threads that you've posted to become Watched topics.

Another would be checkboxes in the Watched tab to quickly UNWATCH threads that you don't want there instead of having to click through each one and clicking that button.






Not that any of that matters to me because I'll never use those.

Unless I am mistaken and don't know how to use it, without doing anything I end up with 7 pages of watched topic all the time. Seems like all threads where I post end up there. What I want is to have control over what end up in this watched thing by flagging some threads manually.

If there's a way to achieve this with the watched feature, then I would be super happy to know how!

Are you using notify for something else?

Here is a crazy thought....what if SP had an account on here that could confirm progress of group buys, payment received, production etc....

I mean what's to stop someone from coming on here throwing up a fancy group buy and running away with thousands of dollars??

How do we know money was sent to SP or keys are actually in production??

Then this community needs to make a decision to ask for some accountability of the GB organizer in the form of having one of the employees (of which some are members of this site) to update officially.

When you click "Mark all as read" while here: http://geekhack.org/index.php?action=unreadreplies , it only marks the current page as read.

When you click the same button here: http://geekhack.org/index.php?action=unread , it marks every page as read.

I think the first is preferable. Can the second be changed?

Also,

How about an option in search for searching by thread starter?

The input is a user name and the result would be the set of all of the initial posts (thread starts) made by that user? We don't need/want to return all replies/quotes under the initial post: would be too many... just the first page.

This would be very helpful for secret santa: I could find out what my giftee really wants pretty easily.


This would also go some way toward reducing the necessity of bumps: if it's easy for me to find a WTS/WTB/WTT thread for a particular user I'm not going to care what page it currently shows up on the classified subforum.


Cheers,

A feature like that would only show non-participating spammers where to post their spam.

At least as it is now, they post in the uncounted areas, their post count does not go up, they become discouraged and leave.

I honestly don't understand why post count is such a big deal.  I mean anyone with over 60 posts, or whatever a set limit for the Classifieds could be, does not get a benefit from post count, technically.  So other than a philosophical discussion about it, does it really matter that one has more posts?  Post count doesn't mean increased respect level or seniority level, because there are always people who contribute great information and only have like 200 posts.  Also people who post infrequently and prefer to read more instead of posting a lot about off-topic stuff.  So you can have a person with 1000 posts who's been here for 3 months or a person with 900 posts who's been here for 2 years.  I'm just curious why it keeps coming up as an issue? 

Personally, I see it like this.  If you weigh the positives and negatives from counting posts everywhere, this is how it is:


So if you look at it from that perspective, the way it is now is actually with some constructive goals in mind.  Doesn't mean it can't change, but it would be done with the benefit of the community in mind if so.

Personally, I see it like this.  If you weigh the positives and negatives from counting posts everywhere, this is how it is:

  • + count does lead to some people obsessing over as high numbers as they can get - not a good thing for a forum, so I consider it a negative.
  • 0 count is implemented with the idea that it will force people to post something more constructive in areas actually pertaining to keyboards rather than off-topic chatter (that could technically take place on ANY forum--doesn't need to be GH, which is a keyboard/peripheral-centered site) - this is a potential benefit to for the community
  • 0 count is implemented so that people have to contribute something to keyboard/peripheral discussion (to the community) before they can post on the Classifieds.  I know there's criticism of that system as well, but anyway, it's currently in place, and not counting posts in certain areas works well for that purpose.  - this is a potential benefit to the community.
  • 0 count leads to some complaints for a small % of forum population that wants to have all their posts recorded - this is a negative for that small subset of people

So if you look at it from that perspective, the way it is now is actually with some constructive goals in mind.  Doesn't mean it can't change, but it would be done with the benefit of the community in mind if so.

photo I can't read all that right now but its already been made clear in practice the 60 posts count to sell is really just bypassed by people posting either all at once or over just a few days in the forums where posts count, then many sell and leave, or only post when they have something to sell.

IF the only reason posts don't count is to stop people from getting to 60 too fast that reason is invalid by reality (see above) and either there should be a time requirement or something to be able to post a thread in the classifieds.

It is true post count means absolutely nothing when it comes to respect, seniority etc, etc but if some of us take the time and effort to post a gazillion times a day it should at least count, sure some of it maybe crap or most of it at times but surely some nuggets are there.

The point I'm making is post count really doesn't matter, surely I've proven that by now, so why limit it?

I went over that too in the post you said you couldn't read.  Sadly post count DOES matter to some percent of the users, to the point where they WILL post as much as possible just to get it up higher.  Which off-topic discussions are perfect for.  So not getting points for useless posts is removing at least some incentive for those posts to happen.

It isn't the count, it's the content. Your post count matters, but it isn't necessarily about how large the number is. It's a pretty good way to determine signal to noise though...

Rather then waste 30 pages with people posting every variation of the word thanks they ask you to either click the thanks button or do not post at all. They will delete worthless posts that do not contribute to the topic.

xda is easier to find useful information in it's dev forums because of this policy.
If you do want to post useless crap that is what the general forums are for at xda.

As a xda developer and long time member I like this policy when reading my own threads and looking for users posting bugs.

Imagine the tmk firmware thread without all the crap.

Domo:

I'm afraid that's not going to happen here.  Even with a handful of things that I moderate daily vs. hundreds of posts made, people already protest.  Imagine moderating every thread actively.  And who wants that kind of a place, where you can't post anything at all that won't yield a "thanks".  Sounds more like formalized information request system than a forum for information exchange and partaking in a hobby.  I don't think that's GH's philosophy at all.  If you're only going to implement something part-way, it's not going to be a good system.  It needs to be a system that works organically for a specific environment.  XDA as you describe it is a bit of an extreme in a different direction, compared to GH.

Also, if you were hinting at me by "some", I actually don't participate in their forums to chat about stuff at all.  I only specifically post to report bugs in ROMs I use, which means I've only ever made under 100 posts there over the years.  I've received some very simple replies, and have not thanked 100% of the time, but do now, because I was specifically told to thank.  Honestly, that irked me, because some things are obvious.  I don't need to add +thanks for every little thing, and yet it seems to be expected there.

A reputation-based system would not work as well because it would require members to actually provide feedback on everything.  And feedbacks could too easily be abused by getting all your friends to upvote your post, or downvote someone else's.

The existing post-count-based system vaguely works - those with only a few posts are PROBABLY new (a quick look at their profile, if it really matters, will reveal when they joined), whilst those with a larger post count have either been here a long time and/or post quite frequently.

Should this be moved into a separate discussion so as not to pollute this general feature request thread?

Anyway, post count is only really used to judge the reliability of members who start GBs, or who want to buy/sell/trade something in Classifieds.

Here's something to consider: would it be good to implement yet another system of post distinctions that some would like and others would find a major problem with?  Invariably, there will be complaints and threads saying "this new system is so unfair, let's change it in some way".  Look at how much random criticism something so very simple as Star icons have gotten.  Some pointedly don't get stars, some argue that stars are stupid.  "Someone with who's been here for only a short time should not be called an 'elder'", etc.  It's such a simple system, with voluntary participation, and yet even that was grounds for complaints.

Let's face it, GeekHackers love to complain :)  So a system that's as simple as possible is probably best.

A reputation-based system would not work as well because it would require members to actually provide feedback on everything.  And feedbacks could too easily be abused by getting all your friends to upvote your post, or downvote someone else's.

The existing post-count-based system vaguely works - those with only a few posts are PROBABLY new (a quick look at their profile, if it really matters, will reveal when they joined), whilst those with a larger post count have either been here a long time and/or post quite frequently.

Should this be moved into a separate discussion so as not to pollute this general feature request thread?

Anyway, post count is only really used to judge the reliability of members who start GBs, or who want to buy/sell/trade something in Classifieds.

I think it would be worthwhile to note length of membership under post count, just so people can quickly see how long someone has been a member.

Here's something to consider: would it be good to implement yet another system of post distinctions that some would like and others would find a major problem with?  Invariably, there will be complaints and threads saying "this new system is so unfair, let's change it in some way".  Look at how much random criticism something so very simple as Star icons have gotten.  Some pointedly don't get stars, some argue that stars are stupid.  "Someone with who's been here for only a short time should not be called an 'elder'", etc.  It's such a simple system, with voluntary participation, and yet even that was grounds for complaints.

Let's face it, GeekHackers love to complain :)  So a system that's as simple as possible is probably best.

Instead of a +1 or "Like" button, how about a karma system? Members must have a minimum number of posts to give out karma, and even then, they cannot give out a karma point more often than, I dunno, once per day? So if someone writes up a great post, something useful, something funny, whatever -- you give them some karma along with a description of why you gave them the karma.

So let's imagine someone wrote up a great tutorial on (speaking hypothetically here) how to paint my toenails properly. The karma listing for that post might look like this:

-Krogenar, posted 12/31/2013: "I frosted my toenails for New Year's and it looks awesome, thanks for the tutorial."
-Spamray, posted 1/1/2014: "The bacon-scented scratch-and-sniff polish was a hit!"

And so on. It would help identify the really awesome threads, trending threads, and make it easy for people to promote the best of the forum. Displayed under each avatar would be how much karma that user has received, and clicking on the link shows the posts where (and why) they earned the karma.

Another thing :D I've been noticing over the past few weeks how much more readable threads would become by removing nested quotes and leaving only the user directly quoted. Many threads pages are made rather long by leaving the nested quotes intact, often one after the other increasing in size, making posts more difficult to follow.

At least collapsing nested quotes within a 'Show more' button as I've seen on some forums would be an improvement, as constantly stripping out redundant quotes from posts is a so passť  ;)

I don't know if it has been mentioned yet (probably is) but I am thinking of making some kind of bump your thread system. Maybe like on DT you don't have to comment on your thread (to prevent mess) there is a "bump" button and in the OP it specifically says then the thread was last time bumped. Near little feature will keep the threads more clean imo.

Would it be possible in the software to have a "Timeline" link at the top, like Tapatalk has? Basically like the "Spy" feature, but doesn't update, and has multiple pages of contents. Also "Subscribed" which is like "Watched" but includes already read threads.

I currently use "Unread" and "Watched" mostly, but I'd like to see  Timeline and Subscribed features, where even read threads show up there.

Something like

Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao May 2nd

you sure youre just not blocking PMs only? it hides posts for me, but it's easy to just click view and they still take up a spot in a thread. i dont think this forum software is advanced enough to actually remove posts tbh

Ignore feature needs to actually do 2 things :
- Hide completely the post and not just put it under a spoiler protection
- Hide when quoted posts of ignored people.

The second part is tricky, I don't know what you be a good way to implement it.

Unfortunately this wouldn't have any functionality in the web browser (since the various sections to find new posts are all dependent on your having posted there, subscribed, watched, etc).  However, you can tag people with @UserName and they will receive a Tapatalk notification if they're using it.  I know @rowdy uses Tapatalk, for example.  ;)

If you go to Profile > Notifications, change the section titled "For topics and boards I've requested notification on, notify me:" to 'Instantly - but only for the first unread reply'.

This seems to drastically reduce the number of emails I've received for CV, but still has the Tapatalk notifications coming.

It would be nice if Geekhack was available with full SSL encryption, as now it shows up as "Not Secure" on Firefox. Perhaps Let's Encrypt (https://letsencrypt.org/) would be a viable option as it has recently left beta and is becoming widely used.  I just feel that offering https is a way to respect GH users.  :)

Some extra info from Firefox:

I think some more sub forums aka child boards in the "Making Stuff yourself" would be great. Currently there are lots of threads about cap making which I'd think be a great sub forums, I also think tutorials such as Bros lube guide, the Pcb thread and solder thread should be in their own forum within Making stuff yourself! :)

Yes and no as Gfycat offers multiple formats, gif not being the default one.
The last gif (https://giant.gfycat.com/VelvetyWearyBooby.gif) I posted in Group buys was 70 MB. (ouch)
I probably could have shaved 20 or 30 MB by lowering resolution and compressing a little more but here (https://thumbs.gfycat.com/VelvetyWearyBooby-mobile.mp4)'s its 3.5 MB mp4 version. Can't beat that afaik.

I just noticed that embedded Youtube videos lack support for the fullscreen button (example post (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=92573.0)). It's not hidden but greyed out, becoming unclickable.

Would be useful to have for viewing videos in more detail for sure (unless it's just myself experiencing this).

Thatís a YouTube thing; some videos allow it, some donít (when embedded/linked off site). Itís the similar to how some videos canít be played unless on YouTube.

Thing is all the videos here have the same greyed out button (example thread (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=34445.new#new)), unlike every other forum I've been on with embedded videos.

Figured it may be a missing parameter, as adding allowfullscreen="" (or alternatively just allowfullscreen) to the iframe parameters displays a clickable fullscreen button.

Example after tweaking with the web inspector:

Code: [Select]
<iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/KckCsw_JyJI?autoplay=1&amp;autohide=1" style="width: 480px; height: 270px;" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>

I think it will be pretty cool to have a "Request a review" thread so that for example, if one is looking at buying a product and can't seem to find a decent review on Uncle Google, One can request it here and see if any community members will be willing to do a write-up or just share their suggestions and opinions.

just an idea that popped up, hope that made sense. :))

 I would like to see the GB topics put into two parts;
1) active GB's > those that you can still join, are still active
2) production GB's > those where the actual GB stage is completed and have moved on to the production stage.

Reason; when I look through the GB topic looking for something cool 9 out of 10 times when I find something it's already completed and in the production stage.

This would mean that the IC/GB topics would be devided into 3 sections instead of 2 obviously.

Agree, have had the same problem when looking for something nice to buy. As soon as the GB closes move it to a different section so people won't get their hopes up. Threads are open for months after the GB closes with the current system and it makes thing pretty confusing at times.

I'm not sure I follow. Usually the organizer of the GB changes either the first post or a reserved post to reflect the current state of the GB (often times the title is changed to reflect any GB changes).

editt - Ah, I see the GB/pre-orders rules have changed. I guess this issue was bigger than I thought.

I've been thinking about this for awhile. Things kinda work ok around here so I haven't bothered to write it up. I do think it could be better though... my proposal would be to reduce the number of forums which would increase visibility and activity within a forum subject. It also allows good threads to not be missed because they're in a forum that most people don't visit:

Great Finds -> dont see a need for this
Member Auction Links -> realistically could just be part of regular classifieds ads
Reviews -> Should be posted in the section for what you're reviewing. Perhaps with a [REVIEW] prefix?
Ergonomics -> Post in the keyboards forum.
Other Geeky Stuff -> Its off topic.

I also have thought about the idea that we should do a separate for-sale and wanted forums to make it easier to sell through GH. Just being able to go into a forum and search for a term and get hits on people that are selling it vs. want it might make it a more popular place for people to post their stuff.


Anyway, just throwing my 2cents out there  :thumb:

Or people could use the forum like a forum and actually browse the subforums.

In my mind if you're looking for information on any of those things you listed above you go look in that subforum, that's why they are there, they help narrow things down so they can be found.

In the past we had members who would actually post great finds not just Ebay trolling.

And member auctions was created because classifieds auctions are against the rules (again many people don't seem to realize this place has rules).

And putting reviews in with everything else they'd get lost completely.

And the beauty of other geeky stuff is that it isn't off topic it's just not keyboard specific but still generally good information.

Off topic is just ramblings.

Not directed at you but I had no idea so many people didn't know how to use a forum because I've seen posts elsewhere from people who genuinely seem confused as to how to actually use this website.

This forum works like most any other forum I've ever used, maybe I'm getting old but a continuous stream of topics on a a single page where I have to use tags or filters to drill down isn't a forum.

Of course I have no idea how to use those newfangled things those other folks seem to think are better. Not really sure what to even call them.

Thought I'd ask again in 2019 if there were any plans to take this forum to the current decade now that it's properly hosted. By current decade I only mean allowing embedding gifv, webm, mp4 or whatever format allows a compressed video to weigh way less than a regular gif (23 times for this one (https://imgur.com/eGIkdMb) that I can't even embed in gif format). I shouldn't have to use Vimeo or Youtube in 2019 to share silent moving pictures, if anything it's annoying for the user, especially on mobile.

Yes this should be easy atleast for gifv as the current Youtube mod for SMF actually includes a gifv embedding feature, but it's disabled for whatever reason. I'll Ping MDMatt to see if he can do anything about it :)

option to hide specific threads?

would like to push this again

i'd still like this feature

Still here

Can we get someone to fix the issue where emotes break when you quote them with embedded pics.

Hey guys, I figured out a fix for this.

When you quote someone just botch the quote and the emotes will work again in your post :cool:

Or tapatalk has navigation buttons for that.
