As the other thread's gotten quite long and a bit messy, I'm starting this new one and a separate bug reporting thread. Post here to suggest new features, improvements on existing stuff, etc.

Please explain things as clearly as possible; state what the suggestion is, why we need, how it would be used, etc.

Wherein I list the things that we already have a plan to do, and those things that have been suggested but are very much _likely_ not going to happen. Discussing new things we should want to do is done over "here.":/meta/tell-us-stuff-that-needs-doing


See below for general list of things we already have had a think about:

*Plan on doing:*[bq]
*General*
-> Fix that one bug
-> Page that shows "previous versions" thumbs for images that have been merged
-> More forum sections ("this post":/meta/feature-suggestions-and-discussion/post/219176#post_219176)
-> Improve reverse search engine
-> Multiple source URLs for images

*Notifications:*
-> Reply notifications specify if you were replied to directly
-> Notification system update (more events, better visibility, "this post":/meta/feature-suggestions-and-discussion/post/197164#post_197164)
-> Allow viewing of recently read notifications

*Streams:*
-> Support of twitch.tv and piczel.tv streams (see "this post":/meta/feature-suggestions-and-discussion/post/212458#post_212458)

*Comments/forums:*
-> Image comment search

*User-related:*
-> Ability to search through PMs
-> Ability to search for users by name
-> Add more things to this list[/bq]

*Actively doing:*[bq]
-> Bug fixing
-> Redo upload workflow - @one day, Simba...@
-> More things in the tagbox (NSFW tab, "ship names":/meta/feature-suggestions-and-discussion/post/222309#post_222309)
[/bq]

*Not doing:*[bq]-> Private faves - @THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT OF FAVES@
-> Account deletion / wiping - @not great on the database, and pretty abusable@
-> Greentext / colors in posts and comments - @Because no@
-> Public ban history - @I'd be on that list...@
-> Pinned task bar that follows you as you scroll down - @not really our style, and they suck on mobile devices@
-> Image deletion by uploader - @because that'll never be abused...@
-> Spice up Background Pony IDs with randomized "pony-like" names (see "this thread":/meta/namize-background-ponies-no-to-boring-hex-values-js-userscript) [/bq]

*Done (because sometimes, things actually get done! also this list is probably incomplete):*[bq]-> Tag info on tag pages
-> Image comments that are replied to link to the reply with a click-preview (January 2013)
-> "Smarter" Spoiler display priority (Feb 2014)

Please explain things as clearly as possible; state what the suggestion is, why we need, how it would be used, etc.

Wherein I list the things that we already have a plan to do, and those things that have been suggested but are very much _likely_ not going to happen. Discussing new things we should want to do is done over "here.":/meta/tell-us-stuff-that-needs-doing

*Anyone posting a suggestion already covered in this first post gets a free 12h ban.*


As the other thread's gotten quite long and a bit messy, I'm starting this new one and a separate bug reporting thread. Post here to suggest new features, improvements on existing stuff, etc.

Please explain things as clearly as possible; state what the suggestion is, why we need, how it would be used, etc.

Wherein I list the things that we already have a plan to do, and those things that have been suggested but are very much _likely_ not going to happen. Discussing new things we should want to do is done over "here.":/meta/tell-us-stuff-that-needs-doing


See below for general list of things we already have had a think about:

[bq]*Plan on doing*

-> Fix that one bug
-> Use @faved_by:@ instead of the current favourites page
-> General stream improvements
-> Mobile site
-> Page that shows "previous versions" thumbs for images that have been merged
-> More forum sections ("this post":/meta/feature-suggestions-and-discussion/post/219176#post_219176)
-> Improve reverse search engine

*Notifications:*
-> Ability to check off notifications without going to the image/thread/stream
-> Page that lists everything you're subscribed to
-> Reply notifications specify if you were replied to directly
-> Notifications on image deletion or merger
-> Notification system update (more events, better visibility, "this post":/feature-suggestions-and-discussion/post/197164#post_197164)
*Streams:*
-> Support of ustream, justin.tv, twitch.tv and picarto.tv streams (see "this post":/meta/feature-suggestions-and-discussion/post/212458#post_212458)
-> Support for custom IRC embeds in streams
-> Additional description field in stream embed pages
-> Save NSFW stream setting for streams
*Comments/forums:*
-> Image and Forum comments that are replied to link to the reply with a click-preview
-> Click-preview on forum comments
-> Image comment search
-> Implement Background Pony ID system to image uploader
-> Spice up Background Pony IDs with randomized "pony-like" names (see "this thread":/meta/namize-background-ponies-no-to-boring-hex-values-js-userscript)
