What if ... What do you want fixed or improved on the UG?

During this entire episode with MentaL, a compelling number of you indicated that you feel ignored when you express criticisms about the site. So in this thread, let me know what you want, and what you don't want. I will look for consensus concerns, prioritize them, and then get it done. My resources are far from unlimited, so we are talking about seeing changes over the Winter and into Spring, not next week. But once organized, I will show you the list of projects, and let you know when each is complete.

I love intelligent crticism, so please be frank.

That said, if you post "your f@$%ing app sucks balls, I can't believe you scumbags charge for that," there is not much I can work with there.

Also, if it is relevant, be detailed. If you say "the suck site is pissing me off with the too much  ads noises," there is nothing I can do to help us. If you say "I am using Google Chrome with OSX, and there is a video for Mucinex beside the reply box that is auto playing when I mouse over it," then I can fix it really fast.

I bet you were about to post "your f@$%ing app sucks balls, I can't believe you scumbags charge for that." :-)

So let me know what you want. Please.

When i'm on the website on my computer, lots of times when i click a thread or a thread off my subscriptions or create a thread it immediately takes me to the homepage.  Its pretty annoying.

Dont know if this will help, but another member had this same issue the other day using IE as browser.

I recommended him clear cookies and cache for IE, and it seemed to work for him

Everything is on the table. Something like that is an awesome idea. It would be part of a long list of potential app upgrades. The we prioritze the updates, and start building.

It would be great if I could get full site function in the app. I understand AD can't go in - but what about Friend requests? PMs? Searches? Also, the website makes pic posting pretty easy, with the HTML formatting option (I get it, it's really not that tough on mobile either, but, hey, you asked...). Would it be possible to do something like that in app? Like I plug in a line of code and it auto formats for me?

Oh, and please re-reverse the views and comments in the list of posts - it's been pretty confusing since the update! Phone Post 3.0

Everything you suggested will go into a list for consideration.

I think the re reverse glitch has been coded and just waiting for a few more things to the update does a little more than just that one ungoof.

It would be nice to send and read PM's from the app, and a bookmark function (someone mentioned in another thread) so you can mark your place in longer threads Phone Post 3.0

Thanks for the quick reply. Maybe landscape mode for mobiles as well.

What's wrong with the quote function? Phone Post 3.0

I've noticed that sometimes when you start a thread and include a picture in the first post, it squishes the pic and makes it look a bit off.


It doesn't always happen, but it has happened to me multiple times in the past.


Even happened on that hotel room view thread.


Also, if I am scrolling down quickly on the app, it will crash. Many times, there will be large back and forth conversations with people quoting each other, or some idiot quoting a massive post with like 20 pictures; When you try to quickly get down the page, you get booted. Phone Post 3.0
