Do we need to only upload square pictures to keep this from happening, or could the program be modified to clip off the excess height or width?

For me it is cutting off the extra height or width, not distorting the pictures.

I really like the way the new Friends display looks.

I went back and looked at it again. For the pics that are slightly rectangular, it does that. For the ones with a high aspect ratio, they squat or squeeze. I guess my friends just don't fit into square holes.

Through the old system, you could enable a pop-up to appear whenever you got a new Private Message. This was great, since just logging on, or moving from one page to the next, you could be notified of a message.

Would it be possible to link the in-boxes to send pop-ups the same way as the old system? That would be ACE.

Thanks,

agreed wholeheartedly, i actually came in here to suggest that too. I check the forums all the time, but sometimes forget about the profiles, it'd be nice if "new pm" came up upon checking the forums too.

if it's not too much bother, of course. I'm not too well up on computers.



EDIT: in fact, if "new friend request" etc. came up too, that'd be even better.

Where it says you (x) amount of rates would it be possible to see who rated it like you can on the tabs?

Dmitry, if you're listening ...

1 - Thank you for adding the Report! lines to the Profile functions especially to the pictures. There have been very few people abusing the profiles, but I had seen a few that were WAY over the line. I don't have to bother the Mods about stuff like this any more.

2 - Thank you for putting this whole thing together. At first I though it would just be BS like myspace, but I love it now!

3 - Thank you for all your work straightening out the bugs. A project like this is never without complications. Some people got a little whiny about the problems that cropped up during bug fixes. I don't think they appreciate how big the code must be and the level of interaction from one subroutine to another. I was impressed at how quickly you eliminated some of the problems that occurred.

4 - Thank you for popping onto my page, just to say hi. I don't know if you are doing that to random people, or if you picked my page for some special reason. Either way, it made me giggle that someone as important as you, took the time to say hi to someone you don't know.

5 - We know bug fixes are the most important issue for now. These requests are for whenever you have time. One of those "it would be nice if ..." sort of things.
  1. Getting the time on the Profile Pages, like it is on the Forums.
  2. Ability to delete favorite tabs on our favorite pages.
  3. Add a "quote" button to the comments window.
  4. Pop-up window for notification of Private Messages on the new system, while browsing the Forums.
  5. Button to subscribe to ALL of your friends' Blogs at one time.
  6. Bulletins function added. Within groups, you could create a bulletin and send it out to all members of the group. On your Profile Page you could send it to all your friends. Blogs on the Profile Page make bulletins there less important, but for Groups, bulletins would be ACE. -OR- Create a blog function for Groups, and allow group members to subscribe to the group blog?
  7. Ability to see who else is viewing the group, while you're in there.
  8. Edit or Delete comment that you make on someone else's page.

I think I've brought all the issues forward to this point in the thread.

Again. Dmitry ... thank you.

Maybe a place where we can post our lyrics perhaps?

Both for a band as well as an individual user.

Noxi, some of that is already in place. I don't see anything about group invites, but the rest is there ... and more.

Can we have something on the MP3 thing that asks for something like "Your Influences When Writing This Track" or something. Just to let people know a little more about each track.

I think this would be useful for people who have a good few songs on their page =]

Hey, i was wondering if it was possible to make your song play automatically when someone is looking at your profile. Many good music is overlooked because people are to lazy to click the "play" button!

I assume most people on this site are, like me, usually listening to music whilst browsing, and a feature like that would annoy the crap out of them

It would annoy the crap out of me, for sure.

^Some people already have it on their profiles, using embedded 3rd party players. I remember going to HOly Katana's page (I think it was) and Scarified started playing.

Uhh, Frenchy...

I already asked you this in chat but I can't remember what you said. Is it legal to have videos on our profiles of live performances by other groups. I currently have Dust N' Bones by GN'R embedded and I want to know if it violates any sort of copyright issue.

Thanks
Ben

there should be comment alerts or notifications that way you can communicate with each of your friends through comments instead of constant messaging.

I just wanted to know what you mods think about a Hip Hop/Rap subforum. I know it's been brought up before I'd just like to know; what's your take on this? I actually tried to look in FAQs and stuff but didn't see anything. Thanks.
