Forum Suggestion Box - Volunteers Wanted
FSB="Forum Suggestion Box"

Now each forum can have a FSB topic. Volunteers are asked to Create New Topic in the forums they are familiar with. They would then click Attn:RR on their new post so I can assign it as the forum's FSB topic.

FSB topics are free form. They could include FAQ or setup tips for example. Another use would be to suggest new forum subsections. Volunteers would forward consensus to me for implementation.Mark Ryder

This is a great feature - look forward to having permanent documented suggestions and tips we have generated easy to find.

Here's a suggestion, clean up the way of adding pictures to a post from one's gallery. At the moment it's a PITA to figure out. After a number of tries it finally dawned on me.

How about adding to the clipboard text of
"Click thumb to save image, view file name-size or to remove"

and add under it
"or close this window and go back to your post and 'Paste Clipboard' to add this to your post"

. . . That would have saved me much frustration.

permanent documented suggestions and tips
how do we determine whats a good tip and what is not...

I mean i have come up with some really lame crap in retrospect...I sure as hell don't want that permanently documented

The gallery thing is a big one on my list...I just want to select a photo and type what it is or move it around...not mess with a bunch of scriptsshowing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Yes I need to improve on RR photo posting and make it more intuitive. Thanks for the feedback.

Which forum for owning it's FSB topic?

Posted by Pistol Pete on 02-19-2014 06:24 PM:
I believe that if you eliminate the paste from clipboard that should clear up some of the confusion...hopefully.

Then have an UPLOAD PHOTO section available when replying to a post and not just in the gallery section. Saves having to open another browser page and having to ALT-TAB back and forth between them.
Posted by Mark Ryder on 02-19-2014 06:26 PM:
The clipboard is not going away. I want you to understand where the photos are stored for future re-use. They are not stored with a post as in an attachment.

I am going to make it more intuitive.Mark Ryder

New topic suggestion
Is this topic the suggestion box? If so, I have a suggestion for a new category. I am in the begining stages of building a hobby trailer, designing the layout inside anyway. I have seen topics and posts in the past about such projects, I would like a designated place for people to share their hobby rooms, trailers, man caves.
What do you think?

RR does not have a poling option by design. It's way too ripe for manipulation.

worked great used it couple days ago i think its a excellent feature.

for example i asked which gyro do you like best
spartan 9
vbar 65
ikon 40
beast x 38
i asked because a friend bought a spartan and wanted to know which gyro was the most preferred so i created a poll.

anyway thank you for the reply markInsha Allah made in america
Posted by Mark Ryder on 03-18-2014 11:28 PM:
Most forums have the polling feature. The difference here is you ask the question (pole) and get typed out responses. Thus minimizing manipulation. That's how RR classified feedback works.Mark Ryder
Posted by es1co2bar3 on 03-19-2014 01:57 AM:
The ranks system might need some Re_work,

1st of all the Goal post is too far, if you just look
at the amount post a member would have to post to be RR master:. "Now a member who's averages 3.6 posts a day
Like me all a year from now I'M not even half way close.

I would say every 16 months a member Rank should go up one level.

A ranks increase for good behavior and no violations of forum rule

member can lose a level of ranks for violating Forum/ policy,

again I think the goal post for the ranks system is too high

This I thinks will iliminate troll as well people just posting all kind crap just to get count or attacked another member to get count as well.

That's what I'D like to see sir.I was waiting on some honey but there aren't no Queen bee,
Posted by Mark Ryder on 03-19-2014 03:47 AM:
Status is based on post count. Off Topic and Classified posts do not count.

Esco, How much work do you think Mark wants to make for himself. Having to worry about your post count status probably is not his highest priority. Then on top of it you want him to deal with bumping people up for good behavior and down for bad, go to another site where the moderators are running rampant, they could do that for you. There is no good way to have a status. Some people say few words but are very helpful and there are others that blabber about everything and say nothing.Blade 130x (5)

Rank is irrelevant, it only serves to feed ego and arrogance.

In fact rank should be removed entirely.
