Suggestions Poll January 2003

Well, here we go. Not every suggestion will be voted on, some because they are already in the process of being implemented, some are not possible, and some are duplicates of other suggestions made throughout the month.

The polls will be open until 02/12/03 (so right at midnight on the 11th) Eastern Standard Time. After that time, the polls won't actually be closed, so if an item that was initially a "No" on Wednesday and via extra votes becomes a "Yes" next week, we'll address it at that time.

Suggestions not included in this poll:

Watch that thread: This is already in the process of being implemented

Cafepress store for fundraising: A Cafepress store already exists, and with the new payment system, fundraising may be possible inhouse

More security for memories: This is already in Zilla, I'm not sure of the exact link, feel free to comment with the link if you know it.

Developer section of the FAQ: This is in progress, with an entire redesign of the FAQ system.

Pay per icon for paid members: bandwidth issue, PicPix (as noted in news may be how this is implemented (if it is).

Subject lines in comment replies: Zilla'd here and here

Title of Friends page shows filter names: Zilla'd

Friends purging: This is based on the side effect of changing your journal into a community, not really a feature that needs to be improved because it's not really a feature. In addition, it's an inconvenience to your friends and maintainers of closed communities to add you back.

Macro like text replacement: Semagic already has this feature

293047:optionally ignore certain members when you have a community on your friends page // avva hinted at implementation already in the progress on this one

Update keeps post when going to full update page:Open link in new window or copy/paste or utilize a client

Addition and Modification to edit style page: No additions to current style system, will one day dissapear as S2 takes over the world.

Special or Normal paid accounts allow space for user graphics: Will be possibly implemented in the future with PicPix/Fotobuilder

291620:Style families or sets, rather than creating styles for calendar, lastn, friends, and day // S2.

Changes to SiteMap: Exists in Zilla

289864:Accessing ones own styles (either public or private) via style browser: Zilla'd

User Icon Replacement: Zilla'd

One month paid as teaser: The problem here is that some of the paid benefits don't really expire. You can still keep your styles, and if you don't want to upload a new user pic, you can keep 10

Translate to l33t:More important to focus on real languages now (and I swear to holy people if I get one comment to this post in l33t...:P)

Friend checking to allow you to see when there was a new entry on your friends pageDone with Semagic, Win client, and appending ?mode=live to friends page URL

RSS teasers for free users:implemented

Student discounts on lifetime accounts: Overwhelming shot down.

Better payment methods: With new inhouse payments, international cards are accepting, and you still have the availability to mail a money order (provided it's on US funds)

lj-specific tag to escape code/script:This can be done with HTML entities

Adding non-lj users as friends like ujournal does with RSS:already in place

improving nohtml=1:Noted in comments that it more than likely won't be expanded as per Brad's preference

Hit Counter: This is already in the works for a paid member benefit in the future, additionally, you can always use a third party counter.



I always welcome comments and suggestions on what should be polled. However, that doesn't change the fact that some things won't/can't be implemented.

Edit: You do not have to vote on every item. Vote on the ones you want, and then click "Submit" (or whatever the button says). You can always leave an option blank.
