Suggestions Update

Itude

Just to let all know that I will be posting the first 5 suggestions tomorrow.

I have simply copied them onto a word document and if this works ( ?!)

 I would ask if those who have made the suggestions if they are happy for them to be left "as is" or whether they would prefer to amend, adjust, withdraw, or whatever, their orignal suggestions. 

I will do whatever you suggest.

I would request that any comments be left to those who have made the suggestions.

 There may well be another opportunity to comment on them, but at the moment unless I can get a view from the original suggestors this is perhaps not the best time for that.

So pease take note :

Posted Below are the first 5 suggestions :

 

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

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?


Would the originators please comment ?
