i like the ranking system. its not all about how many post you leave. but how much you are involved with the site. some people dont like it because their rank never increases but it shouldn't be taken away from those who worked hard to get their rank.

Agreed %100.

I am sure that this has been said already, but I will go ahead and ask for these two things anyway:

1. The ability to delete one's own posts (in case of accidental double posts, etc.
2. A PM system. Pretty-pretty-pretty please.

In the time it took me to read through this thread, I got logged out. Why don't you give me a cookie that lets me decide how long I want to stay logged in for? That's an abnormally short period of time to get logged out in, especially when there's no user control.


How about a bigger clue that you got logged out, such as a background change, so you don't waste time selecting the Post Reply button and wondering why it isn't working.


Too much contrast in text sizes. Don't need the big fat topic names and quotes are too tiny. Why can't I affect the CSS so I can choose my own text sizes?


I want to be able to thumb up/down or like/dislike posts.


I want a post image button so I don't have to use HTML. I don't need an Undo or Redo icon, jeez does anyone use those?? 


I'd like a URL shortener right on the edit screen somewhere... but even Twitter doesn't have that so maybe there's no way.


There are so many forums out there that work for their users. Why does this one have to look more like a not-particularly-slick blog commenting system than a forum. Personally, I like PHBB and vBulletin -- if CBS doesn't want to commit a lot of resources to startrek.com, why not just install and customise one of those? You could have spared yourself this whole thread because everything users are asking for is already in them. In fact things like setting timezones are so fundamental, I can't believe it wasn't specified for this forum at the requirements stage.

>Good comments. A couple I hadn't heard of before. For instance, what is a "URL shortener"?


bit.ly and goo.gl for instance


I think I can see why they wouldn't make it part of the experience here, and besides we have the link thing in the full editor (the chain)

The admins apparently deleted one of my posts from yesterday because I asked what's been going on here in the last 3 years. Don't recall if I mentioned Paramount or the other official forum by name, but the post was basically saying hello to old friends and establishing my stance on using either or both boards. Google cache didn't capture the thread so it's lost to the ether; compliments on your quick reflexes, admins.


It gives the appearance that the admins are scurrying to hide threads that could result in awkward things being said about CBS. Which would be public relations in the style of Cooks Source.


Protip: A consumer-facing entity can't afford to be secretive on the internet. It will always bite you in the butt eventually.


 


WOW I got logged out while I was composing this post. Do you SERIOUSLY consider this an acceptable default setting for a forum??


And again with no cues that you're logged out. Hire a UX person, for pete's sake!

A PM system would be nice. Also, it'd be great if it was easier to distinguish quotes; maybe the box could be darker? Thank you, though, for all the work that you have put is so far. We appreciate all the improvements!

1. Resurrect the community this place was before the changes
2. Reinstate members who have been "indefinitely suspended (read: banned) who helped MAKE this place a community who have been suspended because of flood level reports from one or two members with multiple dual accounts.

That's too bad. The woest part is those folks have been "banned" without any communication. They weren't spambots like the Locutus duals. I think the admins have said reinstatements wont be happening.


I know.

It seems the policies to "revitalise" the boards involved listening to spammers with multiple dual accounts and removing those who were long time members of the community. End result: ST.com is dying. Posting on the boards is down 80%

I know it's been said a hundred times but... I really want to watch all the Star Trek shows, I know there are a lot of hoops you guys have to jump through to make that available, I just hope you are successful in getting shows like TNG and DS9 on this site.

Maybe threads should be deleted after being inactive after 6 months or so. Either that, or find a way to search for threads on certain subjects so we don't repeat ourselves before posting new threads and this way older, but good, comments stay relevant.

I think that you should make some sort of Star Trek game that we can all play while on the site kinda like what we see on Facebook (ex. frontierville, Evony)only Star Trek. It would bring the community together and it would be fun to advance in rank and such in the game.

I would like to see replicas of the Starship Voyager. You have replicas of the Enterprise, Klingon battle cruisers, etc. How about the Starship Voyager? Plus, models where we have the ability to create our own starships like the online games. I would love to see this on the website.

I frequent other boards and this is my first time on here so I'm still not familiar with the layout but I can't seem to find a chatroom?

Never let me slip, cause if I slip, then I'm slippin.
