I'm not sure we've ever done this before, since this is basically what the entire Site Stuff board is for, but this is a thread to collect general feedback on the site.  We would like everyone to give us honest feedback about their FT experience, and tell us what you'd like to see added/changed, please :-)

So, do you have a suggestion of something we could do better?  Something you'd like to see added/changed about the site?  A general comment/observation about the site or its staff?  Post away!

A few notes:
-Please don't mention the lack of a website to go along with the forums.  We're aware.  Painfully so.  The FT category in my to-do list laughs at me every time I pull it up.  I know I'm sounding like the Duke Nukem team, but it's coming, it really is.  Admittedly, it probably won't be awesome enough to justify the amount of time that's passed since I started on it, but it will exist and I think everyone will like it.

-Similarly, I didn't forget about the mobile app project we beta-tested a few months ago.  It's the next thing on my agenda after wrapping up two paid clients.

-If you'd like to give feedback on site policies, you're welcome to do so, but if you'd like information about a specific disciplinary action that was applied to your account, please PM or email an admin privately.  That sort of thing really doesn't belong in public threads, mostly for your own privacy.

Because noone else has asked anything, and I have a question, I shall ask it. How often is it ok to F5 a page? When wanting to see a reply to something, I sometimes F5 every half hour or so, and I wondered if that was ok.

We highly recommend/prefer you to avoid that.  Every time you reload, not only does it consume server resources to generate the page, but it consumes considerably more bandwidth than a normal page load, because it forces a re-download of all the images and formatting files on the page, files which normally stay cached in your browser.

If you're that concerned about replies to a topic, use the Notify link, it will send you an email when there's a reply.

Maybe make the "admin edit" graphic a little smaller? D= Idk, just a suggestion. It just looks weird when it's as big as/bigger than the post itself.

It's not really "admin edit", since it's for all staff, but yes, that's on my to-do list.  A couple staff members made the same complaint, and while it makes sense for things like multi-posting (which was the main reason I made these in the first place), they can definitely be smaller.

Um... I don't know whether this the right thread to do this but it seems to be the closest to the one I was trying to look for so... Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

On December 24th, 2011, 09:17:06 pm, I received an automated message over my PM spam explaining it had been revoked for thirty days.
It's been 62 days and (to my knowledge) my message rights haven't been given back.

"An Error Has Occurred!
You are not allowed to send personal messages."

Appears whenever I try to send one.

Again, sorry if this is the wrong thread. I lost track of time on it and just realised that it'd been more than a month. Thanks for any help you can give me ^.^

Ideally, you should contact an administrator via email to fix this sort of thing, anything related to your own account shouldn't be posted publicly.  I've corrected it for now.

I suggest we should have a draft button if it doesn't heavily affect site resources.

It's not so much that it affects resources, but it'd be really difficult to add something like that, and I already don't have time to fix small stuff around here (sorry! :-( ).  If Simple Machines, our forum software, had that ability, then absolutely, we'd add/enable it.  But writing something like that from scratch is out of the question.

I've posted in some of the forum games, and I don't want to get shown new replies from it, can I not get the notify under 'unread replies'?

I usually open many interesting threads in different tabs, and post that way. Though I do wait thirty or so seconds so it doesn't tell me I'm spamming, sometimes it doesn't count my post until I wait a minute.
Are you supposed to wait a minute for it to count them, or?

What do you mean by counting your post?

That shouldn't happen... Are you sure you weren't posting in the Spam/Testing or New Members board? Posts there do not count towards your post count.

How about; This may sound crazy, but bare with me. Either a livestream using multiple users, kind of like the radio, but to talk about large discussions which people may suggest to the "creator" or the stream using skype or the stream chat. If this may not be good for people due to timezones , how about a YouTube channel dedicate to a weekly video on a user suggestion.
Hope you take it into thought(:
