I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow variability in number of posts per page

    Allow users to specify the number of posts per page. Sometimes it would be convenient to display 30 posts on one page so one can scroll up and down to follow long conversations.

    • Make DaniWeb Digest more prominent

      Currently one must guess that "Receive Occassional Email from DaniWeb" means "Get the DaniWeb Digest!" (and in fact, I still don't get it!). I would suggest placing this much more prominently!

      • Thread labels/tags instead of subforums

        Allow "labeling" of threads (as gmail does) rather than putting them in subforums (folders, following the gmail vs traditional email example).

        It is ultimately much more flexible - folders/subforums are a strict subset of labels/tags. This allows for perfect backward compatibility - you could leave the structure that you have in place, just when a user clicks "c++" under "software development", it would just show them all of the threads with the c++ label. This allows "old school" users to go about their business without even knowing anything changed. But "bleeding edge" users could take advantage of mutliple-labels on a…

        • Bring back spy

          Bring back a page where the posts made in daniweb were displayed live, moving in a vertical way fading as time passed by. (Perhaps a less buggy version)

          • Monthly email with unsolved threads

            Send out a periodic (optional!) e-mail containing, among other things, links to "unanswered questions". Sometimes this is a motivation for sporadic users to log in and answer a question which seems to be in my sphere of knowledge.

                • Create a wiki to catalog answers and examples.

                  Create a database/wiki of frequently asked questions and answers in compilable code form. As an example, at least once a week someone will ask "How do I sort an array?". Rather than a member having to explain how to store the elements, where to find the sort function, etc every time this happens, we should simply add an entry to the examples database called "Sorting an array" and spend the few minutes that we would have spent explain it to a single person writing a brief description paragraph and some code that demonstrates a typical use case. I recently did…

                    • Show an "advanced search" link

                      Rather than click "search" with an empty search text box, it would be nice to display an "advanced search" link near the search button.
