[Community Opinion] Suggestions

Postby rdsrds2120 on Sat Jun 11, 2011 2:07 pm

Community Opinion

_________________________________________________________________________________

In the 50th Edition of the CC Newsletter, there will be a Community Opinion piece about Suggestions! We would like to know what you think about:

  1. Which Suggestions should be implemented first?
  2. Which add-ons should be built into the site?
  3. If you were to make an ordered top 10 list of Submitted Suggestions to be Implemented, what would it be?
  4. What are some outstanding problems that you see with the Suggestions process?
  5. Are there any improvements you'd like to see?
  6. Which should have more priority:
    1. Suggestions that affect gameplay or
    2. Suggestions that improve site maintenance, hardware, processes, forum, etc (i.e. Usergroup Control Panel, https login)

If you would like to discuss anything outside of the bullets, feel free, and know that this is just a piece for the Newsletter, and isn't intended to have weight in what happens from the Webmaster.

Which Suggestions should be implemented first?


shorter round time for speed games and then more medals for us premiums to get.

Which add-ons should be built into the site?


since click maps was built in i think they next best is map rank

What are some outstanding problems that you see with the Suggestions process?


slowness of the process,not getting enough feedback and the fact that there are 3 pages of suggestions without them being archived as rejected since no community interest.

Are there any improvements you'd like to see?


lack providing some sort of feedback on outstanding threads that are years old.A priority list of suggestion e.g.high medium low tag in suggestion title to indicate where the suggestion is going.

Which should have more priority:

Suggestions that affect gameplay or
Suggestions that improve site maintenance, hardware, processes, forum, etc (i.e. Usergroup Control Panel, https login)


i think gameplay can be held over for another 6 months to a year while lack upgrades more forum stuff. The site lags on occasion so i think a lot of us would like that to be sorted aswell as improving game finder even more than he just did and ofcourse the big one usergroup leader powers.


hope that helped :)

Myself, I'd like to see Usergroup Leader powers instituted (as far as a suggestion that could feasibly be done soon). If nothing was off-limits, I'd say Adjacent Attacks, the 12-player increase, Paratroop Reinforcements, and Zombie Spoils are all neat ones that I'd love to see implemented.

As far as the Suggestions process goes, I'd say the gauging of interest in a certain suggestion (and the stickying of approval) doesn't seem to have any solid basis, other than the Suggestion mods' intuition. It would be nice to have at least an informative thread telling what is necessary for a suggestion to be stickied. That is not to say the Suggestions Team isn't doing a fine job - I mean, TFO kicks sugg butt - but it would be nice to have the comfort that their stickying is based on set guidelines.

Suggestions that affect gameplay, this is a site for gameing, there for that should be dealt with first.

We cut it down when it reaches 4 pages. 3 has been the threshold for a while now.

An option for shorter round times in speed games

Game Labels for private games

Usergroup Leader Powers

Site Integrated Map Rank

Those aren't in any specific order, just they are all good suggestions :)
rds is awesome!

Thanks for the input. Keep commenting on my bulleted points, and I'm going to add this one in there right now:

If you were to make an ordered top 10 list of Submitted Suggestions to be Implemented, what would it be?

My List
1. Paratroop Reinforcements (it fills a gap in the current reinforcement options)
2. Zombie Spoils (will change the way maps are played like Nuclear did)
3. Integrate Map Rank
4. Integrate Watch This Game
5. Allow Assassin & Terminator to be game types available for team play
6. Increase players to 12 (this would allow Assassin & Terminator to be played by 3 Trips or Quads teams)
7. Remove Manual unique kills from everyone's figures for games on maps that didn't have Manual deployment
8. Add a 'Tournaments Participating In' dropdown to Game Finder (similar to TO dropdown recently implemented)
9. Add a Find All Active Games to a players profile
10. Allow medals for ALL game options

I think TFO was more or less joking, please don't let this refrain you or others from keeping your thoughts away.

Lack of someone devoted full-time (or even part-time) to improving the website. We hear many promises of things that will be done soon or are in the pipeline, but they just aren't getting done. Suggestions are pointless when they take 3 years to implement.

Would you consider this to be pressure for lack to hire a web developer?

That or do the job himself. The glacial pace of things changing on this website shows an unprofessional approach to meeting the community's needs. Some of the suggestions are very well thought out, well planned, and easy to implement.

Any more people have a list of things that they think should be done first? Any comments about the Suggs forum structure, etc? I'd really encourage people to list the add-ons that they want to see put in first and why, that would be interesting.
