I'd like to see an easier way of navigating back into the forums from the bottom of a discussion. Breadcrumbs or links of some sort would be helpful. Right now I have to scroll all the way back to the top of the page or go back on my browser.
As we say in my office: Let's Discuss!
What would you like to see there? What kinds of 'topics'? Or just a free for all long screen of folks talking about Whatever?
We're here, me and marye, and are listening, taking notes, and passing your Fancy Feature ideas onto the people with the magic fingers. Please keep 'em coming!
I would love to see poll style results of people's favorite versions of songs (date) as well as favorite shows by year voting and an easy way to interpet such info.
I went cruisin' through the Archives last night and I really enjoyed the timeline thingie and seeing all the photos and posters.
However, there are LOTS of clippings and articles, but none of them are legible. I definitely realize that imaging is an intense process and super high quality images would be costly in terms of labor and storage, but has anyone given thought to making the articles/posters/interviews/whatever purchasable in a high quality format? Some of those interviews I would definitely buy because I find the band members thoughts and sayings fascinating.
Just a thought...(oh, and this new place is neat-o!)
I don't know if it's possible, but when someone types a date(ie: 7/7/89) it would turn it into a link to that specific setlist. That would be awesome.
Definitely a shoutbox embedded in the board index would be a plus.
Also, not that more forums are really needed because there are ALOT already, but a "lounge"/general chat forum, hopefully placed high on the list would be nice too to get things rollin'.
My feeble, get-rich-quick attempts:
i think everyone knows that. i do wonder, though, why it all went public so quickly.
The show database is definitely going to need work. It's on the To-Do list!! just remember, the folks backstage here still only have 10 fingers and need to eat, too.
I think the shows attended list is a fantastic idea.
How about some kind of totals or totaling at the end of the list so that such things as total # of shows seen, #s of shows at same venue/different venues, #s of shows in each month, as well as the obvious, "songs seen" lists. Ratdog.org has a feature like this and it's pretty cool. I would hope it shouldn't be an impossible task to add this in the future!
Peace & Light!!
