    Common Suggestions List

    Just a list I compiled of common suggestions that our user's have given us. Though, just because something is on this list, does not mean it will be implemented! Items crossed out are things that have been suggested to us but will not be implemented, reasons for such are listed at the bottom of the page.

    It's probably a good idea to check this list before posting a new suggestion thread to see if your idea is already on here or not.




    REGARDING SMALL/SQUARE THUMBNAILS:


    Quoting aden from later in this thread:

    Re: thumbnails, don't worry guys, we're not ignoring you! Changing these over to full previews (yes, non-square) is a component of another effort that we'll hopefully get out to you in the near future. Really sorry about the lack of feedback from our end regarding this
    So we would appreciate it if you stopped making new threads about thumbnails seeing as this is being taken care of in the future. Thanks.

    * We don't want Weasyl to have an official tool that scrapes other sites without their permission. However, other sites are free to export their data in a Weasyl-compatible format, or users are free to use a scraper to make it.
    ** Disabling downloads will not keep users from using other means to download the media they want.

    *** No BBCode bar will be implemented since we are mostly switching to Markdown

    not sure if we should respond to this if we have things that arent suggested. So feel free to delete this post.

    Perhaps having the option to have the "let other edit your image tags" be a "per submission" thing and not a whole site preference.

    Not sure if we should be suggesting more things here, and like Temrin said feel free to delete this if so.

    General:
    -group search / database
    -groups page to profile
    -profile optional setting to link to a character
    -stats; like joined date, number of submissions, journals, views, etc and the option to have it displayed or not
    -log in setting for homepage
    -events / calender (find out what conventions or things your favorite artist, friends, etc is going to!)
    -email notifications and options
    -sfw mode

    Submission related:
    -auto tag complete, as you type a word for a tag it comes up with possible tags (keeps people using the same or similar tags)
    -mass upload (like from a zip or something)
    -option to allow or disable guest access (block non users from viewing your submissions)

    Commissions related:
    -having commission categories be drop down menus with option to expand all
    -being able to set how many open slots you have


    Also a little random thing that's kinda fun I have seen a couple sites implement it and ties into the stats I guess. It would be achievements, although I could understand not doing it as it could lead to people just throwing random things on to get the achievements lol.

    Along with the edit submission being able to notify followers as well as anyone who faved the piece that was updated or changed.

    Edit: I noticed that you can block/filter out your own submissions, I think this should be changed to only block filtered tags for other users.
    Edit Edit: An easier way to remove/delete tag filters. Maybe double clicking them could remove them or drag-n-drop to a trash can icon or whatever.

    One thing that I think is really needed in galleries is a Next and Back button when viewing the submissions. Maybe I am entirely blind, and it is there - but if it is it seems awfully hidden. When I find an artist I like, I love to view their gallery one by one, but I can't seem to do that here without always going back and forth.

    bottom right there should be something that says More in Folder "Commissions" (or whichever folder) and there is a back and forward with a couple imgs to go back and forward by

    For Streaming: Could we have a link to view all active streams instead of only four? (Or I assume that's all it shows. Haven't seen more, and the names shift.)

    I totally get not wanting to spam the main page with them all, but like the viewing more submissions there should be an option for streaming. It's getting popular and I really enjoy watching people. Yes, you get notified if you are watching, but what if you don't have someone watched?

    I definitely want these changes implemented. It's the biggest thing that disappoints me about furaffinity. If even the folders for favorites are made, the site will have a big advantage over FA. After a while, favorites pile up and organization is a big problem. So yeah. This is one more request for these features.

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet! but it would be nice to have a system that asks you if you truly wish to sign in/sign out follow/unfollow friend/unfriend rather then just having to click once to do so.

    This will really help those who use a itouch or any other kind of touch pad from making constant silly mistakes!
