Total Feature Requests list (2003 - 2012 index)

Presenting the total work order (I mean Feature List) for the:

Design & Functionality Research, Developments & Improvements Engineering and Testing Cross Functional Department (also known as Thor)

The feature request list is a alphabetized consolidation of the 33 pages (approximately 825 individual requests and over 5500 individual posts) found in the "feature request" forum. A feature request listed here does not necessarily indicate support for the request, only that the request was made. Last update: August 15, 2014

Image 2003

01. Adding and subtracting posts - related to the "points system" request q.v., this would give board owners the ability to reward a person with additional posts or punish a person by subtracting posts (here).
Image02. Announcements - A post that shows up in all forums above the sticky topics with its own “announcement specific icon,” promised (here) but never implemented.
Image03. Application to multiple forums - Instead of having to apply to each private forum one at a time how about the ability to apply to several forums at once? Requested (here).
Image04. Avatar Gallery - The request for Runboard to have a gallery of predefined avatar images that users could use (here).
Image05. Blog Subscription - The ability to subscribe to blogs the same way we subscribe to topics (here).
Image06. Board Statistics – Not very specific, just that more Board Statistics would be added over time (here).
Image07. Chat Box - Requested (here). I think the current 3rd party chat box is pretty good.
Image08. Community Calender - The request was for a calender that would allow users or board staff to create "events." Thor agreed it was a good idea but wanted to wait till he had some other stuff done first so he requested a reminder in "a few months" (here). I created a work-a-round for code savvy users (here).
Image09. Custom HTML header and footer - The request was for separate custom HTML headers and footers for the main board AND for each forum (here).
Image10. Delete Ones Own Posts - A five page discussion from 2003 to 2011 on the pro's and cons of being able to delete ones own posts (here).
Image11. E-Mail notification - a request allow boards owners and admins to customize the e-mail notifications to match their boards information. Given a priority number of 7 in a scale of 1-100 with 1 being "very low" and 100 being "extremely urgent" (here).
Image12. Edit Ability for Custom Titles - Instead of having to delete the custom title and then recreate it to get it right (here).
Image13. File upload space - Thor said he was considering this as a pay-feature, premium option, for sometime in the future (here).
Image14. Forum list, or forum search engine - a request for a page with the existing forums on it. The original "showcase with a couple of topics showing" was completed by Thor (here).
Image15. Forum Navigation Box/Links - This feature would give links at the bottom similar to the current board location/forum/topic links we currently have at the top but with the ability to "jump" to board defined locations as well (here).
Image16. Forum Scroll Box - A scroll box for faster navigation between the forums on a board. Requested (here).
Image17. Guest-Forum - A forum that would act like a guestbook allowing anyone to post in it without having an account or without logging in (denied).
Image18. Hot Topic Icons - The request was for special icons to show for "Hot Topics" defined by the requester as any topic with 25+ replies. There would be 2 of these icons, one for "new hot topic" and one for "old hot topic" (here).
Image19. Last 10 Posts - A list of the last 10 posts made on a board, the suggested location was beneath the “reply box” promised (here).
Image20. Mark as Read, Check box Option - Allow users to use check boxes to mark which forums to "Mark as read." Thor says maybe in the future (here).
Image21. Mass PM's - Promised (here).
There is a discussion on this and how it could help Runboards profitability (here).
Image22. Move Posts - The ability to move one or more posts to the correct topic/thread. Requested (here).
Image23. Multiple Layout Option - Allow board owners to define more than one layout for their boards and let users choose which one they want to use while on that board. Requested (here).
Image24. New Boards - The idea was to place a button on the ak_miscoptbar that would show the "New Boards" created over a set time period. The listing would be a opt-in listing because the person creating the board would have to click a button saying "add to new boards list." (noted).
Image25. Newest Topics Page - Click the button and see a page with the newest topics listed (here).
Image26. Next Topic - A button to take the user to the next topic in the board instead of having to go back to the topic list. Requested (here).
Image27. Point System with a store - Some method were users could collect points and then trade them for board specific items. Requested (here).
Image28. Profile color choices - Allow the user to select from some predefined color choices how the profile page looks. Not really a skin as I understand it, just some alternate colors (here).
Image29. Quick-Reply - Never committed to when requested (here). Lesigner Girl does have a really nice one though as a 3rd party add-on (here).
Image30. Security on Forums tied to User Defined Levels - The idea is to allow the board owner/admins to predefine a forums access and visibility based on custom titles when they are creating a forum (here).
Image31. Spell-Checker - Promised (here) but never implemented. Not nearly as important now with most browsers having built-in spell checkers.
Image32. Sticky Topics, Kept well... Sticky! - The request was for "Sticky Topics" to stay in the order they are created in. Thor suggested the "post/delete" workaround as a temporary measure (here).

Image34. WebRing for Runboard - A Runboard specific webring (here). I had a 3rd party webring working before changing hosts. Still working at getting it back...
Image35. Who's Online For Particular Forums – As near as I can tell this was for a major expansion of “Who's Online” functionality “When you click on it should give you a list of members and guests and what they are doing, replying, reading or whatever forum they are at.” Promised (here) but never implemented.

Image08. Blog Additions – The request was for more customizing options for Blogs, specifically, the ability to name the blog and change the layout of the Blog. The promise was made to add “stuff” to the Blogs soon (here). Thor kept his promise but the “stuff” added didn't match what was requested.
Image09. Blog Visitor Counter - A small counter to show how many times a blog has been visited (here).
Image10. Change browser title bar title - A request to change the title appearing in the browser bar to reflect either a free message board or a premium message board (here). Note: the title appears to have been removed completely.
