alpha beta gaga

I'm going pretty insane working on nothing but moderation stuff. I want to get a few new features that might be fun to code done in the mean time.

Take a look at the TODO file and leave a comment on the feature you'd most like to see get developed this week. Whatever seems to get the most response is what I will work on.

+- Enable NSFW warning option Does this mean you'll automatically make any site that is NSFW or flagged as such have they little (NSFW) off to the side? That would really be nice so that when I'm at work I don't waste time clicking on a website only to have it popup that "NSFW click to continue" screen, and then have to click back. Or maybe better yet have an option like the don't show NSFW be sitewide so I don't even see them at work.

Maybe some more on the user customization side, with the full user profile, and avatar maybe. You could maybe let people have one arge avatar, then one tiny one for comments... althought that would be ALOT of images to load on ever comments page. Unless you can figure a good way to do that.

User Profiles! Some kind of blog service as well, like a myspace or hi5 type thing. And you could have custom lists of your own that change (like in the front page) but more personalized towards the user's taste in YTMNDs. That'd be so cool. I'll even draw what it looks like, but I'll post it later cuz now I gots to draw it. :P

I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the pie charts on the user votes. It gets all jumbled for people with a narrow voting range. Also, is it supposed to do something when you "click to activate this control"?
June 3rd, 2007

(0)
1) Yeah, the new pie and old bar probably should be switchable. 2) "click to activate this control" is not max's or our fault, but involves a patent owned by Eolas ( see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eolas ). :/ Firefox doesn't seem to be affected by that at the moment.

I just feel like for a quick feature, you can't really go with profiles. To be done well, you're going to have to spend alot of time coding stuff and you'll need to find ways to monetize profile pages. This is a logical step for the site, but I think you shouldn't half-ass it now as a break from the moderation system, but make it your next big project AFTER the moderation system. For now, churn out a quick bit of code that revolutionizes the site. Stick with voting system,
June 3rd, 2007

(0)
new content boxes, redesign the basic front page (yeah, I have my own customized, but the way it is laid out for other users still negatively effects my experience). Pick something small to code, but revolutionary for the site. Things are getting stagnant. The mod system will be a breath of fresh air, but put some change in the mix for now. You're doing great stuff.

My considered opinion? HARDCORE but with site deletion, not user deletion. And you get a badge or something that shows that the site's by a hardcore user, or a random hardcore line on the front page... something like that. And it better be everything I've ever dreamed! Seriously though, you rule.

I didn't see this in your list, and you have enough to do already, but one idea I like is to be able to go to your votes (where it lists how many 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s you've given to sites) then click on one of the numbers to bring up all the (1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, or 5s) you've voted on.

"Downations", this might be the greatest revenue producing option to work on in the near future. The number of altruistic people on ytmnd is probably far outweighed by the number of not-so-giving people, but I'm willing to bet that ALOT of people would pay good money to shaft their friends and burn their sites off the front page.

+- Complete rewrite of sound code. Needs to be a lot smarter and take into account user preferences. +-- For instance, allowing the use of media player on firefox, which would solve a lot of sound woes. +-- Make a sound discovery javascript routine. !-- Would be a non issue if sound was moved over to flash.

I'm actually sort of in the process of rewriting stuff so all sound is played through flash, which will solve a huge amount of problems. This is a long process, as it involves converting ~400 gb of sound files to swf.

Instead of the "Most Voted" catagory we need "Highest Voted." Only sites that recieve 300+ votes (w/e) in a week are elidgable. When a catagory exists that tallies votes in some way that is typically thought of a the people's choice section. It's pretty clear when something has a 2.82 average vote that it was nobody's choice. This would help bring some quality back to the front page, instead of *ssh*les that change their site to goatse, ear rape, and Pacard horsesh*t upon reaching Top Viewed. Also, c*cks.

my suggestion is get the shop and sponsorship stuff up and running first... they'll make you money. then add more features to bring more users in. then make it so that they can group together. having the site moderated well and having everyone abide by the ToS is kinda idealistic but well worth the trouble once you have the time and means to do so. other than that... i love ytmnd and the forums are fine. hope to visit the site until im 100 yrs.old.

True story: 4 minutes ago, I was listening to Carol of the Bells and all of a sudden, out of my open window, I heard someone say "Do a Barrel Roll!" I don't know if it was a recording or a real person, but I heard what I heard.

Who listens to Carol of the Bells in June? Or perhaps you live in Rand McNally where hamburgers eat people.

Here's a overly useless feature: to be able to see a list of ppl who fav your sites. Some ppl Fav sites and don't even comment in them.

How about: a filter that changes any new site with the word "Stephanie" in the title to something like "hermaphrodite" or "lame *ss user".

Max, maybe you don't care, but I just noticed something.... When you're inside your own profile page (or any other), when you press the Comment thumb button, the Favorite thumb disappears. Try it.

Whats the deal with the blue gradient? Is this the level of how pissed off the mods are with me or something?

If losing ad revenue is preventing you from going RSS, why not run ads in RSS? Several feeds do.

I don't care for the new user profile. Could you revert it back, or make it so the individual user can choose the template they want to use? (that may be asking a bit much, it's your website, do with it as you please, I just hang out here.) Also I think the friends thing isn't really a good idea, I can't really see it being vital to any user.

Err... It's not on the to-do list, but ADD A FRICKING DELETE COMMENT BUTTON. You have no idea how many times I've said something stupid and said, "F*ck, I wish there was a DELETE button."

There are already RSS Feeds available for ytmnd. For up and coming, top viewed today, featured users, any user's vote history, etc. They're unofficial.
