  1. Disclaimer :

    1) First of all, apologies for created a brand new suggestion thread. I had requested the moderators to re-open the suggestions thread created by our moderator, Grandeur. But no actions have been taken by them and they haven't informed me why they chose not to re-open the thread.

    I opted against sharing my suggestion on the other existing threads. The reason is very simple. There are high chances that the suggestions shared on the other thread might go un-noticed by the members and the moderators!!

    A note to moderators : I know that the moderators might want to merge this thread with existing ones. Let me ask - how about using this thread as a platform to share all the suggestion for the better user experience of the forum, for the year 2011?

    2) I've sent these suggestions to all the moderators of the forum, excluding amit(I somehow failed to sent him the other day) ,via PM some days back. To say the least, I'm very much disappointed to say that none of them had replied to my PM.* :sadblue

    * - I've no intentions of offending anyone, so kindly take no offence.
  2. Here goes the list :

    1) Thread Rating Option.

    I've this feeling that once we enable 'Thread Rating Option' the quality of the ownership reports, both in terms of writing and the quality of the pics will improve marginally. I don't mean that the current ownership reports sucks a big time.

    2) A link to see the 'Threads created by an user'.

    Currently, our software shows only the list of the posts created by an user. So, one might end up wasting a good amount of time browsing through the posts to find a particular thread created by a particular user.

    3) Thanks Button

    One of the Team FIATian kaps has created a thread on the same topic. You can read the inputs of the other members there.

    Here you go - viewtopic.php?f=59&t=1714

    4) Mobile Skin.

    I belong to the minority group who uses low end, cheap GPRS phone. Seriously, TeamFiatIndia takes ages to get loaded completely on my phone.

    I bet that many of the members might be facing the same problem. So, how about introducing a mobile skin for our forum with no images, so as to make the pages load quickly?

    5) Thread Subscription.

    The current software does not provide an option to subscribe to a thread. Thus, the only way by which I can keep track of a thread is by either bookmarking a thread or by posting in that thread(I mean, if I post in a particular thread it will be visible under the 'view your posts' page.)

    6) A simple Multi Quote option.

    Though we can quote multiple posts by accessing the 'full editor option', it does not provide an option to quote the posts in some 2-3 pages back.

    So, can we have a multi quote option, like the one in Team BHP?

    7) Facebook Like button

    Taking into consideration the fact that most of the members are addicted to Facebook, can't we have a 'Like' button on every thread?

    8) A private section to interact with the moderators.

    I guess, we should have a dedicated private section where members can interact with the Support Team on the topics that cannot be discussed in public.For instance, to bring into the notice the improper/unethical posting etiquette of another member or to discuss the things that cannot be discussed openly on the forum.

    9) EXIF Info

    As you know there are many awesome photographers on our forum. I've seen umpteen times members asking each other the EXIF data of the pics.

    Why can't use integrated the EXIF data with the pics?

    10) 'Newly created threads' link

    Like 'New Posts' link, I would like to have a 'Newly Created Threads' link. This should show all the newly created threads after my last visit so that I don't have to search for such threads in hundreds of updated threads.

    11) Back to back posts.

    I have seen umpteen times that members post back-to-back within a short time period.Doesn't that add more clutter and pressure on our server?

    How about introducing a rule suggesting that one must not post back-to-back unnecessarily?

    12) 'Unread Posts' link.

    I don't know why this feature has been disabled. Like other members, I would be happy if you re-enable this feature.

    A Note to Team FIATians : Please keep your suggestions and complaints coming in! ::D

    It would be nice there is no "time limit" between posting PMs. I wanted to PM all the 10-12 guys for TFI Delhi meet and it was so annoying waiting for around 2 minutes between each PM. Sometimes we do need to send PMs to 10-15 members like this (before TFI meets etc.) though the need may arise once in 3-4 months but still.

    Otherwise, Amith has enumerated everything that needs to be done.
  4. Nothing more to add. Amith has listed down all the improvements i thought would make the forum better.
    Wish the Mods take this wish list and make every forum members :)

    @Klub Class : I had received your e-mail and even responded that the suggestions have been noted.

    We are in the process of shifting to a new format / software. The current software that we use is a "Free" software and therefore has its limitations. ALL that you have suggested are software limitations. And that is exactly why we are shifting to a new software now.

    Please show some patience. The forum is hardly a year old.

    No offence taken.

    Suggestion to all members

    Please write in detail,when any member got free replacement OR any paid replacment of part.

    e.g. :- Instead of writing " Got Front sturt replaced" Please write the signs & symptoms of problem.
    It will help to other members while dignosing the problem.

    Amith - This one does exist, I've subscribed to multiple threads and get e-mail notifications instantly.
  8. whynot we create a facebook page and also a twitter account.
    And also as klub_klas said a mobile page would be better.
    More publicity about the thread would be better.
    so many FIATians but so less TFIians????

    Seriously no other suggestions at the moment..
  9. Re: Suggestions Thread | 2011 - secure

    Mods- Just a suggesstion - (might be a specific one- but should be a no-timer for implementing i guess)

    How about getting all pages accessible securely thru https:// as well instead of plain http://

    Reason being -at my work, TFI is blocked. https access if made possible, would help poor souls like me ;-)
    i can access the "other" xxx forum thru https though the normal http doesnt go due to being a public forum type site. (I just need to replace the http with an https in the address line initially, and later on, "most" links that lead to inside the site goes with https only. though features like "search" and all might not work.!!

    help appreciated ;)
