    My guess might be that starting your own thread with the question you ask as the title will get you a quicker answer.

    Hi everyone, I am now going to work only with those suggestions that have been made upto this point.

    If any others come to mind perhaps you could save them up for another time, or alternatively send them direct to chess.com or Erik.

    Thanks to all for contributing

    If Erik or any of the mods have any views on what structure might be most sensible, I am VERY open to suggestions.


    The most obvious would be to organize them according to topic or functionality  -- e.g. mentor, tactics, videos.  Of course, many of the suggestions will be duplicate or even contradicting, so this will organize them.

    "This week we are working on the suggestions for improving functions for videos", etc.

    As this thread is still open I will also post the first 5 suggestions here. please suggestors only


    1. btickler




    How about an option for users in settings to remove "Off Topic" threads from showing up in these categories?  That would allow everyone to filter out the junk, if they so choose.  Maybe set the setting to "on" by default ;)...


    2. pdela


    As for the question, I think there are several things that can be done, such as allow people to rate positive or negative the comments of people and the OP itself, sort out answer by rating, or insert quizs maybe in  a special forum to solve difficulties with chess




    3. socialista


    You can give the option to hide threads by OPs, since there are many people that create threads in "General Chess Discussion", but those are never chess related

     One problem I see with the current forums is that people can edit their post anytime and in any way, without a problem. In most forums, there is a time window in which you can edit posts. Not only that, but after a few minutes passes, it will say on your post that your post was edited. This makes it so that people can't edit their post 5 days later and completely obscure the conversation. As is, it's very easy to "troll" by editing your post to something completely different, and few people will ever know the original message.

    • There is an obvious solution to the too much/not enough moderation debate.  Simply give each member the ability to control whose posts they see, as is done on Facebook.  For example, if I find the posts of ObnoxiousGuy999 to be offensive, I could add him to my private do-not-see list.  Then I would no longer see any of his posts (until I took him off my list).  I would instead see a blank space or similar place-holder associated with that post number (preserving the post numbering).  Every other chess.com member (that hasn't yet added him to their list) could still see all of  ObnoxiousGuy999's posts.  Initially, upon implementation of this system, every member's do-not-see list would be blank -- we could all see each other's posts.


    This appraoch would simultaneously allow maximum freedom of speech, and personalized filtering.  And the moderators would have a much smaller work load (still needed for filtering out blatant hate-speech and unapproved advertisements).


    Erik, what do you think of this proposal?

    Could the original posters of these suggestions comment o whether or not they would like to change the above.

    There are already 20+ separate forums.

    Perhaps its time to realize that instead of trying to do more, its time to do less, and to do it better.
