Suggestions to the People behind this beautiful forum

A+ A-

First of all I'd love to thank you a lot for what you have done so far and I have a couple of suggestions for you:

1- A manual for the site.
2- A rich text User Interface, so we can add links and images, bold text, italics...
Thanks.

    Thanks for your suggestions! We considered the latter option, but we saw that it was likely for people to put all kinds of images that were either irrelevant or inappropriate (or dangerous, if they put photos of themselves) and it made moderating the discussions very difficult. Also some people would misuse the rich text and put large fonts in different colors and such, and that would make the forum look strange.

    We'll see what we can do for this in the future!

    This make sense :) I have another question: Why I can't see people's profile? would I be able to do that when I reach certain point?
    Thanks Esraa

    Just one more thing, Why there's no dates on any posts? I think dates are crucial to any conversation so we could know if this is a new conversation or an old one.

      For us we felt that sometimes, if the topic is a bit older, then people just ignore it and the person may not get the help we need. Sometimes people start topics and it's nice to see the discussions continue over longer periods of time, it becomes more fun and active that way, than constantly doing new topics that end up not getting a lot of discussions etc. And we also wanted to keep this space super simple and not get people distracted by dates and so on.

      Hope that makes sense!

      Well if more participation in old topics is needed, then why not design a panel for 'random' or circulated topics? And please add dates! It's impossible to keep track of something currently happening like a meetup or event. Unless everyone wrote the date whenever they start a topic.Thank you as well, for the wonderful safe haven and your time.

    Personally i prefer seeing a date or hour on posts or at least private messages because its confusing me a lot. Sorry but this platform is really weird and I'm afraid it drives members away (i recommeneded the web site to 2 friends they both said its too hard to deal with and i didnt see them post anything) considering a normal boards a VB or something because even a free ProBoards is much more accessible than this. And I dont really see the point of trying to make everything so secretive and hidden we're not committing a crime here after all :p and I think it'd be better if the person chooses to make their profile private than have it made for them.

    Look guys you are really doing a wonderful job, but there's many ways you can make this place better:
    1- The process of reviewing topics before publishing them is making this forum really slow and it's driving people away Plus it's exhausting for you guys! So why not just trust the members and only review topics that gets flagged? This will make your life easier and will make the forum more interactive.
    2- Do Not try to protect the members from themselves, they are adult enough!
    3- I am totally with Delusion in what she said above.
    again, You are really doing an awesome job :) we are just trying to make it better.
    Thanks and have a nice day :)
