It gets hard to track suggestions in a thread that's old.

Starting off a new thread here to get feedback from all members as to what TDF should have. Remember, your suggestion should be for a greater good, examples:

  1. We need to make it easier for members to find the content we post by categorising better
  2. We need to encourage more participation and more sign-ups to keep the forum healthy
  3. We need more Google traffic coming to the forum, so we should discourage copy pasting from other sites, for example
  4. We need to offer a smoother experience and reduce spam
  5. Quality of posts needs to be upped to make for a better reading experience for visitors
  6. New theme for mobile devices and also a dark theme, etc

Suggest changes that you feel will improve the forum as a whole.

1) I guess the current moderated posts limit is 10. It'd be better if it was 5. Would encourage new members. Many don't return after their post(s) go to moderation queue.

2) Dark theme, example - take a cue form dark theme of tapatalk. It's so brilliant.

3) Quote notifications

4) User tagging - I do understand that some members want this at the cost of the option of being able to disable it, and I appreciate it too. If you can bring it with the required option, then it'd be a great addition. :)

1) Agreed, ideally 0, if the mods are willing to keep things clean if not too much spam is getting through. Using the new plugin I think registrations are cleaner now. The same plugin might work well with posts also. What say mods?
2) Will work on this. Any volunteers to work on a theme / modify one for our needs? Happy to give you credit for it.
3) Ok, will check plugins
4) Hmm, facebook-style? Ok, will look for options.

Can we have more and advanced smileys in Tapatalk like we have in the desktop version of TDF? or is it a tapatalk restriction?

3) Quote notifications
+1 to this. Just like we receive notifications for PMs and likes in TDF. XDA Forum also has a quote notification option.

Manual moderation limit is neither 10 nor 5. It is 3 since over a year. :)

May be. But yesterday itself I saw a user's 8th post under moderation. And numerous times, when 4th or greater count post is under moderation.

Not 0, but at least first post must be moderated. Dumb spammers can be stopped right away there itself ?

And no to chat box, will hugely affect attention of users resulting in less activity. All the silly/small queries will land up there.

oh yeah, seen that too, guessing the 4th and onwards posts still require moderation if the first three are not approved... at time of posting
