What can we do to improve the site?

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.

I believe it's called shadow ban.

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.

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

I am with you. The most informative also...

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.

Have you considered teaming up with those up-and-comers, scout.com?

We are still in the process of being impressed with  the thoughtfulness and  incredible insight of your request. Thank you and please feel free to not contact us again. Anytime.

Coming up on 72 hours.  When will the changes be implemented?

If I am in a thread and I post something at the end of the post I want it to take me to first unread post not at the end of all posts. This would be so awesome.

Also whenever I enter a thread  I would like it to go to first post unread.

Personally I would love to see more proactive banning or time-outs of troll posters that only exist to incite and have no real take. There were some last season that made certain threads almost unbearable to read. You can hate Darnold as an example all you want but have some reason not just 400 "he sucks" posts.

Would like to see draft threads not limited to draft time. 

Would like to see a way to rate a thread and have that displayed somehow so we know which threads are good or bad or just flame wars between a couple people.

We need more dogs. And more boobs, but I know you are restricted there by ad censorship.

The mobile apps are a bit of an issue right now, the ones we are using have been discontinued and we are still paying for them. Invision has an app that we might try out.

Just to be clear you are using the JetNation App in Google Play?

Interactive games.
Scrabble, chest, poker, pool etc

With rankings

Good idea, I am looking for them. Hard to find now but if I can find them I would love to add them back.

I did find a blackjack room that I can add. Would anyone be interested in that?

How about whenever you respond to a post, you have the opportunity to rate the thread. 

Make a scale of 1-10.  This way, instead of wasting our time reading a thread, we can decide based on the average rating if we should even bother reading it.  If 3 people rate a thread a 5, and the fourth rate it a 9, the average rating is a 6.

What do you think?

I just opened a ticket to see if we can get it added to this screen so you can rate a thread right before you hit submit.

Right now the only option is to rate a thread when you open it. But I think a lot of people are missing that and don't even know it is there.

Thread starting limits per amount of time? Would maybe hopefully reduce the amount of impulse everyone is great or fire everyone threads after each game?

We put in an option that auto bans now. So if someone gets x negative reps and they just signed up it hides their posts until a moderator can review.

That cleans up the spam but otherwise we like to let people vent and just merge them once things calm down a bit. Now the the Jets are going to win the AFC East this should be less of an issue.  :)

Maybe some more options on the emoji upvote/downvote like a “thanks” or “thanks for posting that” or “that makes me sad”

Yes we need to completely revamp the reactions. I need to do that very soon.

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.

Click on the speech bubble next to a thread...

dark bubble = you’ve posted in that thread.

light bubble = you haven’t posted in that thread. 

no bubble = you’re all caught up

Not what I'm saying.  I'm aware of that, what I'm saying is when I go back into any thread I've read, whether I post in it or not, it automatically takes me to where I left off reading.

Let me look into this a little more. That first unread post is supposed to do this, and I thought it was, but it isn't working exactly as you described. I added it to the list let me research a bit more.  Thanks.

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".

SAR I

Invision made that decision and they don't have an option to "undo" it unfortunately. I wish it was an admin panel that I could setup that way but they don't let us.

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.

SAR I

This is interesting, let me look into this. We should be able to do something on the mobile browser, I agree it shouldn't be buried like that.

An actual chat location like they have on probards.

We had one for years but nobody was using it so we got rid of it because it cost $ each month.

On 3/29/2020 at 12:47 AM, Beerfish said:

No I don't like that one.  Just add more mods or actually dump these guys quick.

I've been to other forums and I wanted to make a good thread and nope!  You can;t you have not posted 100 times!

It sucks.

Agreed, we are trying to handle that with the neg rep bot that bans automatically. Some people could be good posters and new. We believe in the good in people.

Section of the forum that banned trolls can post so we can continue to mess with them? (Probably not a good idea)

More video content (Interviews) with Jet reporters, players, front office, stadium tours, facility tours, game day footage, tailgates, etc.. 

I wish the Jets would give us that kind of access, unfortunately things are moving in the other direction.

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.

SAR I

Sounds like you should stop making mistakes. Get the post right the first time and you won't have to edit.  

Just kidding, I just click on the photo in the quoted post and hit backspace, it deletes it.

 

One thing on the notifications. I just read on Invision's site:  Notification enhancements coming in 4.5. They have been revamped completely. I think that is almost available so I will check things out then, hopefully it fixes the notification problems that you mentioned.

But seriously, a way to isolate and see all posts from a single poster in a singular thread would be great for Mafia.

I just found a plugin that does this. I am going to buy it and will be installing it.

You are welcome, thanks for the suggestion. It is installed and seems to be working.

When you are in a thread if you click the maginfying glass at the bottom of a post, it will now bring up all the posts in that thread, by that poster.

I am going to start a thread on this in the mafia forum now so everyone knows.

All I get is a banner that says new content here but i have to find that myself. Is the bubble supposed to take me to the forst unread post?

FWIW, the functionality does appear to work, sort of.   If I am on the forum list home page, and I click the thread that's showing as the latest thread in that forum, it works

If I'm in a given forum(where all the threads are showing) and I click on a given thread from that page, it does not.

(Doesn't work here)
