The Feature Suggestions Folder

Moderated by @tomic

The Feature Suggestions Folder is one of the forums available on the Skeptic Friends Network.

Do you have an idea for a new function, feature or area for the SFN web site? Please, don't hesitate to tell us, and do so here. We're always looking for new thoughts which may make this site even better than it is already.

Prior to posting, please take a look at the FAQ, including our intellectual property policies.

Here's a link to the New Topic page for the Feature Suggestions Folder, if you're ready to make a post. If you're not yet registered, click here, first.

If you need to speak privately to a moderator of this forum, you can send a PM to @tomic.

Please reply to this thread only if you'd like to comment on the Feature Suggestions Folder itself. All other thoughts, including suggestions for topics of discussion, should be posted as replies to topics already listed in the folder, or as New Topics. Thank you.

Hey, mate, one little bleeding thing's really been bugging me head from the first day I did a walkabout on your site: The "Newest Posts in our Skeptic Forums" column running down the right side of your front page? The bleeding horizontal lines should bloody well separate items, not divide the items themselves. It's fuck-all bloody confusing, that's what it is. I find meself clicking on a link (such as "[ Read more | 53 reply(s) | From Health ]", only to discover I'd poked a link not for the item within the bleeding lines, but for the bloody item above. It's bloody unintuitive, is what it is, mate. It has meself so confused, I've started talking like I'm a third-rate Yank actor messing up a Crocodile Bleeding Dundee dialect -- and I've never even crossed to the backside of the bloody equator. Bloody Hell.

Please move the horizontal lines on each item down to just above the title of the next item, so the lines divide items from items, rather than items from thembloodyselves. And there you have it, a fair dinkum solution, a page as "intelligently designed" as a roo in bloody Araby, if you get me drift, Bucko.

If you want to find recent activity quickly and hassle free, go to the main forum page and click on to active topics on the menu bar next to our logo at the top of the page.

Some people bookmark "active topics."

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Blimey to the moon, that is a good feature, mate! Actually, the web design here is very good. Aside from that one thing I mentioned. Oh, one other thing: A site search feature could help.


There is such feature, when you click 'forums' and one of the links, there's search.

Also, if you look at the end of every thread page, you'll see a pull-down box labeled "Jump To." At the bottom of that list, you'll find "Search Page."

Personal Privacy Protection Issues would be a good forum given all the recent events where our vehicles are bugged with a black box, AOL lost hundreds of thousands of personal member search profiles, VA losing personal data of hundreds of thousands, RFID spy chips being put into our clothes and other purchases and the selling of our data for profit by over 30,000 companies. Sure bothers the hell out of me as my local hospital lost a computer with 60,000 patient files, including credit card and SS#. I had to cancel my credit card and put fraud alert on all credit bureaus, no easy task.

Thanks, Mike

I would've thought that the Policics" or "Social issues" folders would be relatively appropriate. Or perhaps on a bad day, the conspiracy theory folder. With your username, profile and associated links, anyone would think you had a specific agenda.

I find it particularly ironic that as a cure to institutional privacy invasion you offer a service whereby I sell my personal information to a private entity. Still, I get a certificate, right?

John's just this guy, you know.
