GLP Wishlist! Let's brainstorm!
As a software engineer myself, I'm always quibbling about little this & that's that no one else seems to care about, and I've often thought about ways to make the mighty GLP a little more user-friendly.

There was an earlier thread that had a few good ideas, but the thread title was a little too specific to get folk's attention IMO.

There's a lot of great minds here; maybe we can come to a consensus and give the mods & engineers something to think about.

Here's some of the ideas from the earlier thread:

Thread: GLP needs youtube style commenting. newest first.

GLP needs youtube style commenting. newest first.

What I would appreciate is the ability to view an entire thread in a single page.

Going page to page is a bitch on a cell phone.

I was thinking about this the other day, GLP needs to get with it - a mobile responsive site would be great and should be done! ASAP! Its not like GLP was coded from the ground up its a vBulletin like word press forum script for god sake - same with the logo - this site was made in a basement - hahaha! Its a plugin that needs to be activated! Screw the comments, lets get up to date!
 Quoting: createthydream


Personally, I like the mobile and single page ideas.

It might also be nice if AC's could track their posts as well, like members with the "your recent threads" feature, but this may take away some of the allure of joining up, so I can understand that.

Let's also try to keep in mind that GLP is FAST and we should keep an eye to that before we start throwing ideas out that would bog it down for everyone.

So, what say you, GLP? Let's put our heads together, take a doom break and see what we can come up with!

It would be cool if there were a better way to find people interested in the same thing you are.
Maybe like sections of threads, or some type of chat room set up.
Like you could check out all the threads related to aliens in one place, or all the threads about war or politics.
There could be multiple ones, nibiru, ISON, doomsday predictions, illuminati, religious and even "race relations" thread rooms.

Do you mean something more expansive than the Members Directory or the auto-categorization in the Topics area?

What about the various searches, are they not getting you to where you want to be?

Could you elaborate a bit?

Re: GLP Wishlist! Let's brainstorm!
I'm not entirely sure about having all different pages crammed into one is a good idea especially if it is like a 10 page plus thread and there are lot of long posts. However I do like the idea of ACs being able to track their posts.

Good point, some of them are hundreds of pages. That could create serious load on the database end.

Maybe a 10 page per-view limit, or something users with accounts could set up as a profile preference?

Like: Show 1/5/10 pages per view?

Re: GLP Wishlist! Let's brainstorm!
say for example up at the top of the screen there would be a selection of thread subjects. you would click on one and view all the threads about that subject.
there are features already in place that let you find what you want to, I just think this would be a cool added feature
 Quoting: the FaTMaN


I like that idea. What if there were something like "Top 5 Hot Topics Today"?

It could be more dynamic than the existing Topics area...something that matched recent thread titles, so today we might see Syria, Russia and China, but it'd be difficult to keep "Obama" and "doom" from showing up daily, LOL!

It sure would be nice if I wanted to give a thread 5* and I was on page 4...if I wouldn't get pushed back to page 1 after voting!
