OK, lemme repeat it here:


The EPGs, mainly, are horribly incomplete, bereft of the production code, original airdate, writing, directing, producing credits and guest cast listings that made the previous edition worth checking out. All I can see is a few pics and the detailed synopsis!! A very bitter thumbs down. 


How's this for a new idea for StarTrek.com: DITCH BETA!!!!!!!

lets see, i think Return the Boards to the way that they were before would be my first and only suggestion. seriously did a pakled create these new boards or what?

Comps and giveaways for members here to the conventions with exclusives. There are a lot of loyal folk here, why not reward them.

It's strange, being a catalyst for things that move outside.

Could there ever be a chance that www.startrek.com will start offering or allowing fanfiction hosting? Sites like www.robotech.com already have it for registered members, and I noticed that www.startrek.com is already hosting fanart in the gallery sections. So I was wondering if there were any plans in the future to add this to the site?

Plus what about an official fan-site kit for fans? Something with official buttons or banners, even news feeds, for some of the smaller "hobby" fan-sites on the web.

Forgot to add: Is there any chance we can get the episodes from the other Star Trek series posted for viewing on www.startrek.com? And is there any chance of a "directory" style section for Star Trek Online fleets (clans), PBeM groups, or maybe even other types of Online Star Trek Roleplaying groups?

When a member has been suspended, and when a member has been banned, can you show  GROUP  changed to indicate this.

.


what an odd thing to request. What business is it of anyone else's when someone is banned. And what possible reason could it serve to advertise it other than give someone something to crow about?

Good point! What would the motive be of doing it?

I've been speaking with JustHereForFun in another forum but see these posts here, is HE the one I read about before coming here that acts like he's a Moderator???


:laugh: that really depends on which board you have been going to. Seems like everyone has an opinion on who else is acting like they run the place.

Could the moderators clean up some of the vague and acussatory remarks being made or at least add a "Ignore" button for those of us that don't care to read mean-spirited second-hand gossip that seems to be cropping up around the site.

Thank you for all of your ideas and suggestions.  We've been working to implement many of the items during our Beta testing period.  So far, this is what has been updated / launched:



GLOBAL

- Users can “Like” items and take homepage polls without logging in

- Increased inactive time allotment so that users are not logged out so frequently

- Audio captcha implemented for visually impaired registrants


NEWS

- Users can subscribe to the StarTrek.com RSS feed for the latest news


BOARDS

- Users can define their local time zone in Profile and Board postings will reflect the setting

- The most recently updated Threads are ordered newest to oldest post to easily view recent activity

- Threads begin with the most recent posting for ease of viewing

- Users can edit their posts

- Updated Full Editor display and added functionality

- Added auto-emoticons: basic facial expressions are transformed from type to image dynamically

- Display signatures for all participants (not just original author of thread)

- Showing more postings per page



We also have a number of larger updates in development:


DATABASE

- A new Episode Guide with additional details, sort and filter options, previous/next navigation to view episodes in order and links to full episode video (if available)


VIDEO

- Adding link to episode synopsis from video player page (full episodes and previews)

- New sort and filter options for video lists



Finally, we have been moderating the boards and have taken action against a number of users for violating the Terms of Use.  We hope you join us in welcoming fans across the world to the new site and join us in celebrating the incredible Star Trek community and its diversity.

Please continue to share your thoughts and ideas about the site on the boards and you can always reach us at editor@StarTrek.com or report technical issues at tech@StarTrek.com.

Thanks for what you've done, but IMO threads starting with the newest post up front doesn't ease viewing. Reading backward never stops feeling odd.

Maybe it's just me but I cannot find an option to set my time zone.

Thankyou Admins.

I think the last post at top is good. Saves scrolling to the bottom of the thread.

We shouldn't have to scroll to the bottom of the thread cos there should be a button which takes you to the first unread post. Every other forum I've ever used has had that option.

Thank you for your hard work on the boards Admins. However, I will have to disagree with you regarding the ease of viewing with the threads set up as is.

As a child onward, we are taught to read from left to right and top to bottom (in the Western world). We naturally read beginning to end. Reading the last reply first then having to scroll back to the beginning is counter to this natural flow.

I click on the thread and immediately have to scroll and click back to the beginning to read the initial poster's comments/questions.

If the thread is first post first, we get to read the original poster's comments and then have the option to quickly scan the conversation in order or post a reply right away.

Please reverse the thread reply order.

Yeah the new on top deal is a bit old school, a bit "default setting". It really is easier to read the Opening Post first and then go from there. Plus it makes it easier to stay on topic, sense we know what the topic is from the start and don't have to scroll down and back through whatever divergences the topic has taken.


I could adapt to the upside down thread if there was a function that took you to last read.
