I would limit thread starting capabilities to someone that has at least 100 posts. It would greatly cut down on all of the trolls who come here mucking up the board.

Some good topics have been closed due to personal attacks. Ban those folks attacking instead of shutting the thread.

WHO'S YOUR DADDY? (1) - YouTube

 My father Tom Shane suggested I send this feedback. I didn't want to but I'm just happy we're finally talking

 

Serious question.  Is Tom Shane your father, or is he your DADDY.....

The site defaults to a double-line when composing and I'd like that reconsidered please.

On a laptop browser, you have to hold the shift key to get a single line and on a mobile browser it's next to impossible to get a single line or a double line, it often defaults to a triple space.

So my biggest JN wish is that you choose the button that says "hitting Enter key adds 1 line between sentence breaks, not 2".

My second wish is that it is next to impossible to edit a post you are quoting on a notebook browser, and completely impossible on the mobile browser.

Sometimes we quote a post that has an image in it and we want to remove the image just to make it easier for people to read, sometimes it's not considerate to reply to a post with a photo along for the ride, so its nice to delete it.   Sometimes we decide not to quote the content at all and its impossible to remove it, I've broken the delete and backspace keys on my computer trying.

If there is something you can do when someone is replying to make the quoted text/image box more editable it would be great.

My third wish is to please fix Notifications.  A few things:

1.  Half of the time, I get no notification that I've received a response to a post I've made.  If I click the icon I see them, but I don't get the red dot telling me I've got 3 post responses.  This has been happening for over a year both on my notebook (Chrome, Firefox) and on my iPhone (Safari).  Can you take a look at what the issue is?

2. For those of us who don't use Tapatalk and use a browser like Safari on iPhone, notifications are buried in an icon with three horizontal lines.  So to get to a post notification it requires double the clicks.  (See image above).  Can you consider getting rid of the "+" icon which allows someone to create a new post (its redundant, you have a huge green button above the fold) and making the room to then expose the "globe" icon instead?  Getting to Notifications can be much easier on a mobile browser this way.

Thanks.

This is a prime example of why it’s better to tell rather than ask.

So as we are trapped indoors I find myself with some extra time. I am going to be looking into updating some things on the site soon. I figured I would check to see if anyone had thoughts.  What can we do to make the site better?

Just throw any ideas you have out there. If we can do it we will. I hope to have better reaction posts in place soon and I am looking into an updated Post of the Week option. We had another request recently to fix the mp3 button, I am looking into that as well.

There is a feature called Clubs in Invision. That could be good, could be bad.  But basically let me know if you have thoughts on how we can make the forums or the site better?  Anything at all, let's hear it.

And thank you to so many of you for calling this place home.

Maybe one of those Coronavirus Confirmed cases counter that all the news channels seem to have.

It's been two days.  When are these improvements going to be made?

I think I say this every time we bring up improvements, but I loved rep commentary.  That was a fun feature. 

I forgot about that.  It was especially useful with the "haha."  Make sure that they know if you are laughing with them or at them.  Plus, some of the funniest one liners were there.  Is it just that is reduces post count?

Been watching a lot of UFC. Create a  choke out button. If someone receives 5 chokeouts in a thread they get knocked out and can’t reply anymore.

have an actual weekly prize for guessing closest score of game.  Can just be a virtual trophy or something like that. Award points for 1st place through 5th. At end of year someone named champion. 

Sell our email addresses to a competitor. Just kidding.

I know a former site cashed in, crashed in, & burned in a failed attempt to try and have some sort of links / connections / agreements with message board sites for other teams ... but

 

if there is a way to have one of those sticky tags for us to enter cool messageboard sites (like ours!) for other teams ... it would be sweet to go to them & chime in, as well as have them do so here as well.

not just the 2 or 3 posters who show up here regularly, along with the disguised trolls ... but get some more spices to toss into our soup here

I make a Mock Draft every year where I pop in to a bunch of forums for other teams to see who they are talking about or what positions are being discussed. Not a complete 32 I don't think but this is the forums I've used over the last 2 years:

Actually Max,

I have been on this site for years now and I can honestly tell you this. in my humble opinion, this site is truly top-notch. From format, to posters, to moderators, we are truly blessed to have you guys. It has gotten even better every year. Thank you for all you do, really, thank you. 

Yea I have been apart of forums for the the last 15-18 years and this forum is by far the best laid out and best run. I dropped accounts with thousands of posts so I could hang around here more haha

On one forum I use to read, when you finished reading a thread and went back to read the new posts, the tread opened to the first new post. Here it opens to the first post in the thread. It would save a lot of time scrolling. 

I swore this forum does that

Could we make it so that when people get banned they don't know they are banned? Give them the ability to post but no one else can see what they are saying type of thing? I'd imagine nothing would be more infuriating for them than to think people are ignoring the obnoxious things they are trying to say.
