Hey, just a quick little thread to get some input from you guys. We’re going to start pumping out a lot of new improvements to brickfilms in the next month or so and I was just wondering if you guys had any ideas for improvements / new features.

Remember, no idea is too big. But don’t feel bad if it gets rejected. We can only do so much on this server. :P

Not sure if this is possible with this forum software.

Another forum that I frequent has the option to choose which forums are displayed. So if someone only wants to see, say, the Community forum and the Post n Review forum, they can set it so that only those two are visible.

not sure if it’s practical, but that’s an idea.

We’re still waiting for a permanent link to the ignore.php page, but I don’t think that anyone who is using it doesn’t know where it is.

I’d like the avatar controls to be a bit more strict to control oversize avatars, but that’s just me. *cough*

Can’t really think of anything that’s actually *useful*, but I’ll mull it over for a while…

Edit: Okay, I thought of something that will probably be impossible or just plain stupid, but it may be worth thinking about.

On the left of the main page we have the latest films and at the top we have the featured film / random film. These are fine for the films already in the Directory, but is it possible to have a way of promoting films that are just in the Post n Review forum?

I don’t know if it’d need to be a separate little module where directors can add a film link to a little form and have the films rotated somewhere. To have a rough idea as to what I’m talking about, have a look at the Comic Genesis main page. They have little round images to promote various comics. If you refresh the page, you will see a new, random set of images come up.

As I said, not sure if it’s possible, but I’d like to see some way for directors to promote their films that are in the PnR but not in the Directory. The trick would be stopping people from advertising bad films or taking advantage of the system somehow…

I’ve added a small link at the bottom of the forums with a link to ignore.php and I’ve looked into stricter avatar rules but executing a check every time that a users’ avatar is loaded would kill the server’s CPU. :P

I really like the idea of a Post & Review thing on the left sidebar. Perhaps it could be done like the “Random Film” feature. I’ll definitely look into this. We’ll probably need to assign someone to manually add films from the Post & Review section to this list. Another benefit to doing this would be an automatically generated Brickfilms List for any given year. :D

Something to ponder: Once the great purge is done, should we start a “save the thumbnails” campaign? I really doubt a lot of these films will have thumbnails in a few years (canceling server subscriptions, websites going down, etc.). I think we should start going through and putting these thumbnails on the main server.
