EBT feature suggestions

Postby Nerzhul » Mon Aug 01, 2011 4:06 pm

Since the famous "Todo list thread" is getting rather crowded I set up an account with a free feedback service provider which lets users voice their ideas and vote for them. You can find the service at

http://ebt.uservoice.com/

I'm looking forward to your suggestions!

I just watched it and I think it will be clutter. Maybe that will be the more difficult if there is a long list, but you would possibly be able to organize it in categories (as in the "Contact us" section on the website).

This way, you'll prevend us for asking for the same thing several times (like it's possible in the topic, because the previous question was asked some pages ago).

But I've two questions:
  • At the upper-right corner is a link "sign in". Is it the intention that we login first before we make a suggestion? Or is that just for yourself to do customizations (such as the feedback)?
  • Is it still the intention that we fill in the earlier questions, or have you handled everything so far (granted/rejected)?

I've used this site for various projects and the system works really well. Good ideas get voted up, the developers can give direct feedback and users can vote for their favorite features, which in turn allows developers to see which features are most desired. E.g. have a look at http://highcharts.uservoice.com

In contrast the current suggestion system for EBT is chaos. There are 120 pages in the todo list thread, most of which is noise, plus a few other threads scattered over the forums. If I don't read and note down a posted idea immediately it just gets lost.

Btw, you don't need an account at the uservoice site. Unfortunately the free package doesn't allow signin synchronization between EBT and their project.

Well done :D

I'm glad to see that the suggestion platform gets used :-)

Maybe 2 small requests:

- Please break down complex ideas. I'm the only one developing for EBT at the moment, so big projects take a lot of time. A complex feature (like the support system or the new administrative levels) easily take me 6 months IF I manage to work on EBT for several hours a week.

Small tasks (e.g. "Only show countries where you actually entered notes from in country filter") are more easily managed and tracked than big, unspecific ones (NIG stats, new layout)

- Please be as specific and helpful as possible. Include links to examples, mockups, sketches or details about design/implementation if possible.

E.g. if there's a new country which needs to be added, it would be perfect if you could also supply the flag. New stats like http://ebt.uservoice.com/forums/127893- ... een-put-in? Maybe tell me how this data can be derived.

Keep the ideas coming...

I think it's nice to see, it's aleady used so many times. That shows you've made a feature which we were waiting for :wink: .

I've a question according the voting.
It says "you've xx votes left (?)".

How many votes can you use?
When you point your cursor above the (?) it changes of shape, but nothing else (I suspected a kind of "Help-text").
Also clicking on it doesn't work.
Am I too quick (haven't you made the text yet)?
Or did I do something wrong?

Ahhhh, now I can see it too: when I select the page and THAN hold my cursor above it, I can see it.
Those letters have the same color as the background (white letters on a white background aren't visible :wink:, maybe that can be changed?).
