I am no longer actively updating this list. Anything suggested from October, 2014 and onward could very well be missing.
Due to the amount of repeatedly requested features, I've compiled a list of everything requested so far in this section of the forum that has not already been implemented, as well as Mahz's responses (if any) to these requests. If items on the list have a line giving Mahz's response then he has responded to them somewhere in the Feature Request section; if they lack such a line he has not responded to them here. Hopefully this will lessen clutter in this forum section, spread information to the curious masses, and be of use Mahz as a sort of to-do list. Thanks and credit to Ellri for doing the legwork of making the list format not be a huge mess of hyperlinked text and organizing it by categories, which I'd been procrastinating on doing for a long time. --- Requests concerning user profile info and customization: [Implemented Jan 2015] User post count tracking Mahz response: Approval included in a general "I agree with everything" statement. Friend list & Stalker Wall Mahz response: Friends list will definitely be a thing, stalker wall perhaps in a more useful fashion. [Implemented Jan 2015] Visitor Messages Mahz response: Mahz approves of VMs, if only for the sake of flirting with roleplaying babes Various profile customization things Mahz response: First useful, then fun things like Myspacification can come later. [Jan 2015: There is no upload system yet, but you can specify a URL as your avatar] Upload Avatar from URL. Mahz response: It'll come some day, but not a high-priority feature. List of who's been visiting your profile. Mahz response: Seems to have Mahz's approval. Option to display user timezone below the Avatar. Special reward for temp. site early members (apparently promised). [Implemented Jan 2015] Larger signature character limit. Custom user titles. Ability for users to set custom personal default text formatting for their own posts. Bring back profile picture albums. Have a user status thing like back in the olden days of RPG. Mahz response: Unclear response. [Implemented Jan 2015] Show user's last time online in their profile. --- Requests concerning threads/topics in general: Something to make a thread creator's posts stand out in their thread Mahz response: Mahz said this is a good idea, perhaps a ribbon on the upper right corner of the post, especially for when people have mod-like powers over their own threads. GM powers to restrict who can post in their RP Mahz response: Mahz favors a whitelist (only approved people can post in your thread) over a blacklist (ban specific users from posting in your thread), and it seems this will be a feature in the future. Thread rating system. Reputation or like/dislike systems. Mahz response: Mahz only likes upvote-only systems that don't keep track of total points anywhere. Go to last unread post function. Allow users to edit their thread titles. Polls. Topic descriptions and thread view count display. In-thread keyword search feature. Customizable thread/post backgrounds. Mahz response: It's not a feature. --- Requests concerning topic tabs: [Implemented Jan 2015] Add a default Character Sheet tab. Mahz response: He can do this. Ability to create custom topic tabs Mahz response: Mahz likes this idea. Its on his to-do list. Add tabs to the bottom of the page too so we don't have to scroll all the way to the top to switch. Button or link to jump to the last page of another tab, rather than always having to go to the first page upon switching topic tab. Ability to delete and rename default RP thread tabs. Comments tab for topics. Less formal than the OoC tab and open for non-participants to comment within. Mahz reaction: He likes the idea, but fears tab overload. Wants to test it first. --- Requests concerning Private Messages: [Implemented Jan 2015] Have PM button show new PMs rather than sum total of PMs. Mahz response: This will be fixed once Mahz makes the forum recognize read vs. unread posts and threads. Ability to delete private convos Mahz response: Read the above linked thread for detailed answers. It's complex due to the system in place, but Mahz made it clear that he wants people to be able to "delete" private convos by leaving them without it also being deleted for any other active participants. Private message tracking. Add/remove people from Private Message Conversations. Including option to display old posts in it to new convo members. An option to reverse the post display order. --- Requests concerning making posts and replies: [Implemented Jan 2015] Make text boxes less painful on the eyes. Mahz response: Mahz feels your pain and intends to make it better. Raise post character limit past the current 65535 cap, perhaps to a round 100,000 Mahz response: Can't be easily done right now due to site architecture, but Mahz said he would like to do so. [Jan 2015 Update: I can do this now since the Jan 2015 rewrite.] [Implemented Jan 2015] Buttons for post formatting tools rather than having to do all the code by hand. Mahz response: Mahz agrees that this is needed. Save drafts of posts. Mahz response: Mahz agrees that this is needed. Advanced posting system Mahz response: Mahz agrees that this is needed. [Implemented Jan 2015] Post preview Mahz response: Mahz feels you. [Implemented Jan 2015] Grace period is currently 60 seconds Grace period for editing so the "edited ___ ago" message doesn't appear if you edit quick enough Mahz response: Mahz agreed that this is a good idea and has said so before Thread preview idea 1. Thread preview idea 2. A feature to notify you if a new post has been made while you were typing a post. RP specific avatars - ability to choose what avatar is displayed for a particular post. Display word count below post character count when writing a post. Mahz said: Could be done, but what would word count really add? --- Requests concerning forum sections and subforums: [Implemented Jan 2015] User mdk is taking a crack at it Contests sub-forum. Bring it back. Mahz response: It shall be done. Spin-Off (or Fandom) sub-forums for each group RP level (or an entirely separate section like Nation RPs got). Here. Some kind of RP level based separation for 1x1 interest checks. Give the Comrades a new forum. --- Requests concerning Guild law enforcement and moderation: A list of official site rules, preferably with less vagueness than the past site rules Mahz response: Definitely. Ability to delete your own posts Mahz response: It should be implemented some time in the near future. Moderation tools, including report post function. Mahz response: It'll happen He intends to make it as beneficial as possible for the user and with as little drudgery work for the mods as possible. Archive of rule breaking and/or public list of banned people with the reason for the ban. --- Requests concerning the subscription system: Optional auto-subscribe when posting in a thread. A number on the Subs button to show how many of your subscribed threads have new activity. Email Notifications for the subscriptions system. Cellphone notifications/app. RSS Feeds. --- Requests concerning Tabletop RPs: Scheduling tool for Tabletop. Dice roller for Tabletop. --- Requests concerning general forum functionality and features (AKA misc requests): Read/unread markers for threads and private conversations Mahz response: It's in the works. Better page navigation controls Mahz response: Mahz agreed that this was a good idea and gave an example of how it would ideally work. Tag/Label system for RPs and Interest Checks. Mahz response: It's a planned feature. An ignore feature. Mahz response: Yeah, makes sense. Search function Mahz response: Included in a general "I agree with everything" statement. Have a home page sidebar showing subscriptions and such. Mahz response: This is a good idea. User list sorting/searching Mahz response: Included in a general "I agree with everything" statement. Groups. Link to RPG subreddit in the top navbar. A 'What's New?' feature to show what's been going on since your last visit to the site. Jorick note: no idea if he means a thing like the site-wide stalker wall we had on old RPG or a list of what updates have been made to the site, but either one is possible. --- Noteworthy things that weren't really requests: Are previously permabanned users being allowed to return? - Yep, with a clean slate. Automatic post merging will probably not be implemented here. Enjoy your new found freedom to double post, or curse your mistaken double posts until you get used to the new paradigm of no post merging. Mahz wants to make Off-Topic-only bans a thing in the future. Username change requests will be ending soon. "Soon" has now passed and username change requests are being denied. --- Various QQCode requests: Big list of requested code things [Implemented Jan 2015] Nesting quotes and hiders [Implemented Jan 2015] Noparse and Code tags Better video embedding (such as the return of [video] tags that can embed more than Youtube videos) [Implemented Jan 2015] Make the Quote button stop stripping out line breaks and anything in QQCode tags [Implemented Jan 2015] General post formatting options like font, text size, text color, left and right alignment, etc. [Implemented Jan 2015] Tables More emoticons or smilies or whatever the hell you want to call them - and here's a suggestion of where to find a bunch to appropriate for use on RPG Punctuation breaks hider titles, please fix.

Nice. This has motivated me to get a "Sticky Topic" function in place when I have time later today.

Thanks!

(Edit: Okay, I took a detour working on website performance and haven't yet had a chance to work on sticky topics.)

Dark and terrible things. Soon Holmes will be terrorizing the newbies and Grif will get himself a permaban for repeated flaming offenses.

Nice one, Jorick.

An excellent list.
(this reply, other than to praise a nice effort, is to ensure it gets back to the top)

With this, I'm sure no one needs to add a new thread in this forum. This is quite helpful. Much obliged.

Not sure if this qualifies as a request, but is there going to be a Roleplaying Discussion section like there was on the old site?

I've just been creating the forums as I go, mostly because I haven't yet uploaded the forum that will make me easily create additional forums.

Yeah, I need to add that forum.

Now that I've made big strides today against the show-stopping performance issues, I'll have time to work on some issues in this list.

v1.0 of the Password Reset system is up. I've only tested it locally.

Oh, whoops, I know I saw that thread when I was creating this thread but I must've accidentally closed it before adding it in. I'll do so now, thanks for the link.

I can help maintain this list by editing your post if that's cool. It gives me somewhat of a checklist.

Here's the current state of things that I'll start putting in the welcome message (homepage) when I make an interface for myself.

- I fixed the fatal performance issues yesterday (21 Jan) that were slowing the guild down to a halt all day. The guild should now be pretty snappy when it's up and running. Unfortunately, until I fix a memory leak, I have to restart the guild 1-2 times a day. But I'll eventually figure it out.
- The password reset feature is up and logs show that people have been successfully using it.
- Also: Subscription system
- There remain some weird issues like this user being unable to login/register/navigate. But the old guild had issues like that as well, so it's not something I'll let hold me up in the short-term.

Sure, edit away. The list is here to be a checklist type thing, and if editing makes that easier then by all means go for it.

I guess the Report button could be handy again but I'd assume that'd have to mod area up and running for it.

It'd save Mahz from all my PMs haha.
