How could this site be improved?


My top three things would be:
1. Keep all the notifications for a single post together. It's kind of insane to get a line of eight comment notifications for the same post instead of it being condensed and just being shown +8 on the same post.

2. The ability to turn off updates from discussions you no longer want to be a part of. (It very well may be a feature, just one that's not very obvious.)

3. Getting notified about comments that aren't replies to your own on a post you're a part of so you can continue to be more involved in the discussion.

Are you seriously pulling an Arvin right now?

reply

Don't know who that is.

reply

ArvinBorkar (or something like that) was one of the original users here. He just sort of disappeared.

reply

memories.

reply

The problem with the first one is that if there are 8 responses to your post, you'll have to sift through the entire thread searching for it. Keeping them individually let's you see them quicker.

reply

I understand what you're saying. I get on the Steam forums as well though and that's what they do and it's a lot more simple.

That being said, replying to other comments on here is different than on Steam, so I see where it'd be really inconvenient.

reply


Where do I begin?

1. Add color.
2. Add avatars.
3. Add signatures to our posts.
4. Make it so that we can use emojis, videos and gifs.

Give me some time, and I'll come up with some more.

Thanks. Maybe Jim will be able to do some of these.

Jim??

Personally, I don't care about any of that, except it'd be nice to have gifs and videos show right in our posts.

What I would like is for the ignore feature to be fixed, and to not have to hand BB code for URLs and other formatting.

reply

Videos and GIFs are a must. It's everywhere else but here. 🀞

reply

Nah, there are lots of boards out there who don't have them. IMDb never had them either. But I admit it'd be nice to have them here. They can be fun 😊

reply

getting rid of the url would be nice.

reply

Definitely. Also allow for more than one formatting code per post. Larger character limit too.

reply

Booger brain.

brain power

All of that sounds great.

Thanks.

I do really wish this site had signatures. Here is what mine would be:


...out of darkness, out of mind, cast down into the Halls of the Blind!

reply


I do too. Okay, I had to google that. Is that from the video game Diablo?

Mine would be: Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't.

PS The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (1974) is one of my favorite films, and Bruno S. is one of my favorite actors. He died in 2010, one year before I visited Germany. I read somewhere that late in life he would hang out in a bier stube, and meet people. I would have loved to meet him, but I was a year too late. Drat!

😎

reply

yes, it is from Diablo. Not the sequels, i cannot stress this enough. Diablo 1!

reply


Okay. I didn't know there were sequels. I had to google it.

I think all notifications should trigger an alert on our cell phones that we can't opt out of and we don't even know how the hell Jim got our cell phone numbers nor how he got our addresses for the MovieChat mailing list and WTF he just sold our info to a Chinese conglomerate and now we're all getting endless spam offering 50 cent phone cords and USB wall outlet adapters.

reply

I'm sure you know this about the phone alerts but just in case:
Go to your profile, then 'edit' profile and then click 'e-mail off'

Those annoyed me too until Dewey slapped me in the head and told me what to do almost 2 years ago😬
That dude was like Yoda

reply

LOL, I was actually going overboard on abstract sarcasm just for fun.

Yes those emails were a bit much and I disabled them right away, but my emails don't trigger my phone.

I didn't even think to consider that it WOULD actually trigger some peoples' phones who use email apps!

=D

reply

I caught and enjoyed the sarcasm but then considered some posters might not know and Oof! were those e-mails annoying

reply

But, but, isn't it already like that? Isn't everyone else getting the spam for $.50 phone cords and adapters?? 😱

reply

Watch those decimal points.... I got a cord/adapter set and it was 100 instead of 1.00!

reply

But the shipping was still free, right?

reply

Of course! So it was still a good deal. I don't care how much I have to pay, if I get something free out of the deal, then it was worth it!!!

reply

πŸ‘ You scored!

reply

I wouldn't mind seeing a "Like" function or similar, sometimes you don't really have anything to add but just want to agree with the post. I guess I see it as a communication thing.

reply

If I could, I would like this lol.

reply

lol!

reply

reply

I think that would be a cool idea or unlike function lol

reply

Everyone should be allowed just one ban. It's a one-time, one-use, never-get-it-back choice where you can simply pick a user you don't like, and ban them permanently.

It's one-use, because it actually bans you instead.

reply

If you had an issue and you could get a response . I can only post from my phone now

reply

I'm having the same issue. I thought I was banned at first yet did t know what I did wrong.

reply

Me as well. How can we fix that ?
