Put your requests in this thread. If you request something, you need to be prepared to chip in with testing if it becomes a project.

Here's what was requested before the database crash:
- better search functionality and performance (acater) - shelved for a bit
champagne room (Swahili Steve)
remove the Tapatalk popup
mobile theme

Two of these are done, so I won't start tracking threads for them.

Maybe a way to unfollow an Unread Reply thread if you no longer post in it nor want to see it in the All Unread Posts page? I know, pretty insignificant but throwing it out there.

Chance favors the prepared mind.

How about getting rid of the “ you posted less than 30 seconds ago” thingy. Now, if I post in one thread and go to another to post, it gives me this.

The room looked like the site of some horrible zoological experiment involving whiskey and gorillas....

yeah I had that too. What was the reasoning behind this to begin with

Once in Yamsylvania, we had the potato famine. Which did not upset us because, hey, we eat only yams! Then we realized it is better to starve on potatoes than eat yams. We became so poor we had to raise monkeys for their fur. OK, we raised them for their pleasant smell and many tasty parasites. The kids today, tell them about parasite stew, and they look at you like you're some kind of nutty man, crazed from yam poisoning.

Steve...the board seems to be loading pretty slow for me. The threads take around 7-8 seconds to load. I don’t think it is on my end as other apps are fine.

I'm not seeing it go that slowly....but it does seem like it's hanging some.

Even the 'Find Forum Errors' deal in admin is running waaaay slower.

I figure it's got something to do with the mish mash of updated files that drive the software. The built in upgrade feature won't work because it's such a mess. I'm trying to get through it though. I've almost got a full copy of the board and database up on the server that I'll be able to fight with and not crash the board. Once I get that done, I really should be able work through the upgrade. Then maybe the next two that I have to do after that will go smoothly since it's all cleaned up.

That's what I'm hoping for anyway.

I feel like I'm taking peyote here.

There is zero chance that anyone can read and digest any thread and post anything meaningful within 30 seconds after their last post.  This wasn't even the initial idea, which was to stop spammers.  I expected woopig to understand.

What in the world could you be posting that is worth reading in less than 30 seconds?  "Yep!" or "THIS!"?  Congratulations, you've lost at life;  Hogville is your calling.

I think 30 seconds is too generous, and we should be doing 300 seconds, at the least.  Dirk can do baseball PBP at that pace.

You're only young once, but you can be immature until you croak.

You're guaranteed to miss a chance or two to bitch about a bad call by having to wait 30 secs.

Is it?  The local radio is instantaneous, but the ESPN video is always 30 seconds behind the real action, which is 60 seconds behind the woopig thread (which I always appreciate, thanks Dirk and SoS).

Damn, dude, it was just a suggestion. Hopefully the peyote will wear off after a while and you will see that. Leave it there...I really don’t give a shit. Or move it to 300 secs. Take a Xanax and chill.

Yes it is. There's a thread in the main forum about what's not working.
