Hey guys I’ve been with LPU for a while (first year was v. six), I’m all excited for 11, but there’s really a lot of stuff on site that bugs me a lot. And damn sure I’m not the one here. So here’s my list
A little bit smaller…
I know how the web goes all big & easy this days, but on a standart laptop it’s extremely uncomfortable to view LPU on 1366x768, which is most common used resolution right now. How about getting things little smaller here? There’s enormously big padding everywhere on website, super large fonts which even won’t allow to see whole thread/blog titles… I think some css tweaking would make things a lot better
Oh man this big slider, that uses 80% of screen… Make it smaller and a bit slower + another idea - use it partially to show some of the fan-art?
Downloads: uhmm… update this sometime?
Put the forum link somewhere in the main menu, please?
A most weak place. Incredibly hard to find someone from your area, city, country. There’s just a random list of people out there, with really weird working search on the left.
Making a search option by country/city…
People around you:
by using geo-location function, it shows up a people around you via google maps, using a current position, or location user stated in profile (May be disabled completely by member’s will)
Friend request notifications…
There’s is notification for comments, but none for friend-requests.
Friends: I don’t get why every comment on profile should be approved, if it’s even a friend’s one? This doesn’t make any sense.
Real name: It would be cool, if people could find others by their real name. Make a field that could be optionally private.
Import friends: Just like the thing on twitter - searches for friends from Gmail, FB, Twitter etc…
Line breaks in users’ about sections… Come on that’s easy.
[i]ITS TOO BIG:[/i]
It’s a super big font over there, super big padding, I can’t read the thread titles normally, that’s really makes them hard to read. And I don’t think there’s a need of avatar of people who started/posted on thread there, to gathere some extra space.
While quoting someone, forum signature of person also showing in the quote text, its really annoying to get rid of it everytime from there.
A reply button at the end of the page
An ability to quote more than one messages
Style a better pop-ups on hover avatars, or even make them pop-up on click.
Merge “Innaproriete/Spam” into one button. Put the message button in to user pop-up on hover.
Fix the forum activity on main page. It’s shows random posts…
to sum up make it look like classic message boards… lplive or lpa is a good example!
Lot of people have smartphone’s now, would be cool if the website gonna be using responsible theme for mobile devices.
Would you provide a one for a package tracking please?
How about adding some badges?
Like an Street Soldier, LPU Ninja, etc… Some cool sh*t just for fun.
I’ll update this when I remember something else. Much thanks for taking time & reading, I would like to know what you guys (& LPU staff) think about this.
And by writing this, I mean I’ll try to help as much as I can (design, css, styling, making mockups… etc) in making that happen.
