There have been a lot of discussions about new features/improvements in this board and I was wondering if there is a plan to implement these in the current forum software (SMF) or if there is some dev that is looking into these.

I haven't been here as long as other users have (~1y) and was wondering if anyone knows if there were any features proposed by the users here that were implemented by the forum administration. Do you guys know of anything like this?

There is a long thread where hilariousetc has created a large list of items here: Community generated suggestions to improve the forum (+ eventual voting on them)
I have also proposed some new features in the past like: [NEW FEATURE] Seeing a post that quoted your post that I see other people are asking for and I think it could be a good improvement idea for the forum.

If there is a plan to implement these, maybe I can create a Kanban board and sort them by priority (=number votes given out by users).

What do you think?

As far as I know there is still none of those proposed improvements that were already implemented. As we can see, Admin theymos must be very busy. Let's just imagine why the report badges is still haven't released, it's maybe because he's pretty busy or something so I guess he won't be able to implement even one of those proposed improvements for now. Even though we really need some of those ideas, we can't do anything but to wait for Admin's update.

I like some of those ideas in that thread you've mentioned by hilariousetc, and if ever that Admin will apply even two of those proposals. Then my vote is for "1 Merit required to rank up to Jr. Member" and "Completely remove signature to Jr. Member and Newbie rank". This will surely change the Forum.

If there is a plan to implement these, maybe we can create a Kanban board and sort them by priority (=number votes given out by users).

What do you think?
Hmm, no comment. I'll leave the answer to other members.

I don't dispute the fact that theymos may be busy with other things but if it's the case, we may gather a team of devs to volunteer and implement some of them.

I can also volunteer to help out with some of these items if needed since these are going to improve our time here on the forum.

Well that sounds good but I don't think theymos will entrust the task to other members like Mods and Staff or devs etc. as it is a serious matter. But if he does well that's a good news. AFAIK, only Admins are responsible and capable for any implementation in the forum, they just ask ideas from Mods and other members then they're the one who's doing the implementation and it really takes a lot of time (if I'm not mistaken). I like your idea buddy but I really don't think that theymos will just entrust the job that easily. Because if he can, he should have done it before.

Well, I'm not a hundred percent sure about what I've said but it's what I think is right.

That was a great feature to add here in the forum. One thing i think would be great here is the "notification" section where you will be able to see every notifications for you, from merit to someone quoted you.

There's definitely a lot of good suggestions on the list, no doubt. One big obstacle I think that we need to consider when making suggestions though, is that the admins/devs are probably trying to save as much memory as possible(due to the huge number of content being created per day) and decrease as much server load(that's why they disabled user statistics).

And also, things you can do with SMF are probably very limited(or probably needs to be developed from scratch). Not like other forum software whereas you could just install a plugin and you're good to go.

I am sure the version we have - is not relaying on any official plugin from SMF. They (theymos) made a lot of changes so far. This is really sad to hear...
I'm the only person who does development on the current code, and my time is limited.

I am not sure even after all these years - why theymos has not found a loyal member who can give him a helping hand or we don't have anyone at all among all these members?

We really should have an in-house IT team for the forum. Am I asking too much luxury?

What do you think?

Let keep things simple, we can have multiple list to discuss and brainstorm the ideas but keep only one "To Do" list for Theymos.
Whatever we discuss , we can ask hiraliousetc to update in his own list.  

PS: Theymos is reading everything so do not worry,he will implement the idea if he agrees and if he has time but only problem is that he do not explain to us his reasoning or viewpoint.

Sure, I am also surprised this whole forum run on  "One sys admin".  When everyone in world is outsourcing its technical work and focusing on the core business/functional ideas , I somehow found this forum is on another approach.

...only problem is that he do not explain to us his reasoning or viewpoint.
Being an active admin and the only developer of the forum I can imagine how busy theymos is. Expecting an explanation from him will be a torture to him. I wonder how do he even find times to response in some of the topics.

LOL, at-least have some decent manners mate. You don't need to be that much arrogant.

Listen mate, I am a member with two negative trust - licking some ass is not gonna make me anything by the way. I do what I do and I say what I say because I like hanging out with this community. Besides I have nothing new to prove here.

Makes you wonder what he paid the 4 developers of Skrilage $100.000 a month for, for year(s) straight. https://archive.is/npFQF

It really seems like a lot of potential and money went down the drain here that could instead have been used to fix the current forum.



(Note that i am just an outstander looking in though, so correct me if i'm wrong. It just looks really bad.)

IIRC, Is this the github of epochtalk (Bitcointalk 2.0??), https://github.com/epochtalk/epochtalk/, and if it still is, is this still actively being used? It looks pretty dead..  Embarrassed

even funnier just google "EPOCHTALK REDDIT"  and you'll find a lot of unanswered questions.

This reminded me of beta.bitcointalk.org. Since when did they put that down? I've been waiting for a mobile-friendly version of this forum since forever.

I just never doubted why theymos is not replying to most of the suggestions thread. Tho i do not fully support his action. Theymos is doing alot of things and every proposal for the forum improvements are very crucial as it may affect the future plan that theymos have for this forum


So basically IMO most of this suggestions are being considered. Tho, if not all, most of it were never implemented because of that portion to how it may affect the current or the future system plan for this forum

Thanks for the input. Yes, I know he is probably busy but we need to find other solutions to these, maybe delegate the tasks to a team of volunteer devs (I'm open to other solutions if theymos does not want to go with this).

I am not sure even after all these years - why theymos has not found a loyal member who can give him a helping hand or we don't have anyone at all among all these members?

Indeed, you got the point, that's what I'm trying to propose here. We all know it's a lot to handle but we need to know if we're wasting our time proposing things if they're never going to be implemented.

All of these changes can be done to ensure nothing bad happens, we can use GIT and we can have theymos be the only person who can merge to master. So, no code will end up in the forum without being reviewed by him.

This reminded me of beta.bitcointalk.org. Since when did they put that down? I've been waiting for a mobile-friendly version of this forum since forever.
Yeah, that's a whole different story. I'm talking about small changes done to this forum which may be feasible to having a small dev volunteer team.

I think that such a feature is absolutely necessary. The bitcointalk forum is growing and expanding, the number of participants is rising, and it becomes more difficult to follow the discussions of which you are a participant. "Show new replies to your posts" and "Show unread posts since last visit" don`t fully meet the requirements of forum members and don`t show quotes for previous posts. Given the number of topics and answers, it's easy to lose comments on your posts. I believe that the function of demonstrating quotes to the posts you have written will allow the participants of the forum to concentrate on the discussions that interest them and not to lose the thread of the conversation. Instead of writing superficial posts in a multitude of branches, forum members will be able to more deeply understand several issues of interest to them and will maintain a full-fledged conversation with those who have similar interests.

I'm glad you agree, it would be very easy to follow discussions since you may be very active and contribute to a lot of conversations in a day.

I haven't been here as long as other users have (~1y) and was wondering if anyone knows if there were any features proposed by the users here that were implemented by the forum administration. Do you guys know of anything like this?
Going back to one of my other questions, to satisfy my curiosity, does any of you know if a feature proposed by users was ever implemented?

If this counts, he fixed the problem with the hompgraphs which I suggested months ago.
I had to push a lot to get it done but the final result is important Smiley
Done. I only did the ones that look really similar to Latin characters, and it only applies to English sections. It's done at display time, so it's retroactive.
