What features would you like to see in the forums?

Development for Jappleng resumed from a few months of hiatus due to mandatory life related things and so new features and improvements can be done. Presently the new editor is being implemented which allows full control over content posted as well as being able to upload images and media directly into the post.

Forums may seem like they are dated but they are proven over time to be better than social media in the sense that instant gratification isn't encouraged but rather long, constructive discussions are created and maintained. They both have their ups and downs but forums for a community intended to discuss topics at length require it I think and that's why despite J-Spot Social being a thing, I think the forums are important for other reasons.

What kind of features would you like to see around the forums? I haven't encountered anything I couldn't program ;)

Now that the new editor is available around the site including the forums, it'll be much easier to create posts and replies! I also fixed a lot of visual issues and made it look nicer. Next I need to add a latest posts feed on the main forum page which will list you guessed it, the latest posts. I might divide it into two sides so one side might be latest posts and the other might be latest threads

For example:

  • Then I would like to fix the issue where all posts are new. I'm not sure why it doesn't work so a bit of investigation will be needed to fix that. I could bring back the “who's online” thing but I don't know how I feel about that.
     
  • I'd like to also make latest forum posts related modules behave “live” so when something new appears it shows up there. The only issue is that there's a lot of live feature already and it's putting a huge strain on the server. Database queries are CPU intensive after all.
     
  • I need to put back User ID cards and enable badges for the forums as well. If you're not aware, ID Cards is a well, ID card that pops up when you click the button to show it. It shows your card theme that you pick from a list (need to unlock different ones), your avatar and some other info there. I might expand on that system in the future to include “active time” and other customizable options for it.
     
  • Subscriptions and pinning topics for yourself are probably good features to have as well. But first I need to finish the new notification system. Pinning topics for yourself is when you want to monitor a thread temporarily, you can press a pin button and it'll keep it at the top of the list. You can unpin it later easily and manage these pins in the topics list.

I'm not entirely sure I know what other things can be added to the forums but if there are any ideas I'm open to them.
