I suppose this is a concept that’s been brought up in the past, but when you view the pages on BuzzJack day in and day out, you get to thinking what would make the whole experience just a little bit more fresh and enjoyable.

I think to start with a new colour scheme should be used, maybe a dark theme and light theme for nighttime viewing.

I could list more, but the purpose of this thread is to encourage as many people to come forward with their ideas and so that’s why I’m asking the question of this thread, name ONE thing you would change to improve your experience of BuzzJack. cool.gif



EDIT:



So I thought I’d collage peoples suggestions and post them in theism opening post just to get a broader idea of what people want to change (even if not all ideas are possible / realistic).

A new skin / colour scheme (with a Night theme option too) (awardinary, Andrew)
Twitter & Instagram embedding (Jade, Cody, Andrew)
Like button (Cody)
Notifications (Cody)
Increased image size limit for signatures (Cody)
PM Threads (Cody, Jay, Dexton)
cqmerqn to join BJSC (Cody)
Site updates (Andrew)
Axing certain artist forums (Andrew)
A new box at the top of the Forum index with site updates & news (Lindsey, Andrew)
Removal of the Edit line in posts (Andrew)
Increased capacity of PM inbox (Jay, Dexton)
Spotify embedding (HarryEzra)
Editable polls (Dexton)

I would love to be able to embed Twitter and Instagram posts so that we're more up to date! Thankfully this is actually a feature of the new site.

I know you said one thing but there are a few things I’d like to say without having to start a seperate thread kink.gif

- Obviously, Twitter / instagram imbedding
- A new skin? (I like the current one but it’s a bit old)
- More updates on the new site and open the new site sub forum to everyone
- Axe the Zara (cry.gif), Justin and Leona forums
- I think it was Lindsey that suggested this but I may be wrong, a new box at the top of the site with updates

EDIT: REMOVE THAT F***ING EDIT TAG

All of the above (give or take the Joseph suggestion kink.gif )

Increase the capacity of Private Messages! I really like Cody’s idea of having PM threads. Popjustice has those, they’re useful! You can even invite different members to be within the thread.

In all honestly, we need the new site. It’s all well and good saying Phil has a life outside BuzzJack and these things take time but so does everyone else? ohmy.gif Since I joined almost four years ago (and from the looks of it before that ;o) the new site has been coming ‘soon’. Like when laugh.gif

I agree re: PM suggestions. It seems like a very outdated and kinda annoying system of private messaging. Being able to make “group chats” would be a really nice feature (even if it would be the new “Skype group” in bjsc x)

Being able to edit poll posts after creating them without resetting the poll would be great as well

Actually a very good thread.

In the Lounge, you'll notice there are no ads (if you aren't using AdBlocker and unless you receive really intrusive ads I'd ask you to turn it off on Buzzjack elsewhere to help the site, my experience is that they're mostly unintrusive things about what you've been googling recently). This is because when Google originally pulled our ads we decided the Lounge was too smut-ridden to be properly quarantined so gave in because it was just easier. Hence my interpretation is that there's no need for particularly this subforum to be Victorian, what the Lounge Mods allow is up to their discretion and I'd say that they certainly won't allow anything explicit, but there's no need to be completely prudish either here.

~

As said, Twitter and Instagram are features of the overhaul so they will come. I don't know what to say about 'the new site' guys, it's best to think of it as an upgrade that Phil is fine-tuning to ensure it works properly and nothing breaks so we have a smooth transition and we don't lose any functionality. He wants to release it just as much as you guys are impatient waiting for it.

PM threads are an excellent idea and may help bring private messaging back away from off-site chats which can be a bit intimidating for new people if that's the only way you see regulars communicating, but I don't know how functional it is with the software we're going to have. More PM space is something I do give out when members host BJSC (and remember) but I'd love to be able to increase it for all members because it's really small at the moment. That may be something I'm able to do.

Pic size for signatures I'm going to have to nix. It used to be bigger and monstrous signatures permeated the board. I think the current size is pretty good, what I wouldn't mind in that area is an increase on the file size though because with file size creep almost no gifs fit now.

Like buttons are weird, I wouldn't mind them, I'm undecided. Possibly one of the things on the new site but don't quote me on that, I'm currently getting an error on the link. It's not going to be public, there's more than enough people on the mod team around to test it out.

AFs we'll have a review of soon.

New themes and skins are POSSIBLE I think, but they might look a bit wonky and even more 2003-esque than this does, at least the ones we have disabled now. Again I'll look into it.

The poll thing is just something bad we have with our system. Ask a mod to fix it for you for now, I'll see if we can get it any better.
