First, I wanted to say I'm really grateful for the heartwarming reception these past few days. I seriously didn't expect it as I was completing the third month of what I was calling "Forum Jail" -- and having a tiring cycle of essentially day and night jobs! Traditional forums may be dying out, but I'm glad to witness and support such a great community coming together in this day and age.
Yeah, yeah, I know you're not here to listen to me go on. You're here for something else...
I've already seen a lot of requests scattered around forum threads and discord channels, and some were easy to take care of on the spot, while others are a lot more difficult to take into consideration. I'd like you to repeat what you've said and use this thread for that. I wonder how many of our wish list items overlap?
The number one thing I want to make clear is that there are no promises for anything and no promised timeframe for completion.
Truthfully, I don't have the expertise about the system to be able to confidently make everything come true, and sometimes it's too crazy for one person to fix issues for every different way people are using the forums. Some things might've been easier or even existed on the old platform, but we got so much more moving on to this one... so I hope you can understand.
My goal for this thread is to see what it'd take to reach a point of stability.
If there are single items that warrant focus, attention, and a discussion with the community itself, it may be beneficial for you to create a new thread instead.
- One post per user containing a wish list AND optionally an "unwish" list
- Wishes can only be practical forum features related to the overhaul -- reasonable, easy to understand, and have the community in mind
- Edit your list as you see fit, but at the very least please use the hyphens to make the bullet lists
- Wish for the same things to show interest, and unwish items for the opposite effect -- they don't have to be worded the exact same
- No need to list items I'm already committed to, below:
