Please post only Suggestions and ideas for UGP. About bugs please report in another thread, in Site Bugs forum. Thanks!

How about Flash Boxes to put videos up of either your band or just you playing guitar?

Could be another thing people could rate your technique with.

A question: How are these moderated?

Is there a way to report if someone has racist stuff up or copyrighted songs or something?

Also, there seems to be a problem with the mini forums not paragraphing properly.

I don't know if the mods care or not, but if someone gets banned they can still access the profiles...

Also, we might need a couple of profile-cleaners (like column cleaners) or just a way to flag stuff that violates the rules. (eg. copyrighted mp3s, pornographic pictures)

I agree with thefoldarsoldar, we need some kind of Mod staff that works on nothing but checking profiles. The stuff isn't censored, which is cool, but some idiots might get immature and post porn, harass other UGers, or hack into someone's and mess their stuff up.

Also, you think you could put an option on the profiles that says "so and so is viewing this thread", like the olden days?

Other than that, the UGPs rock.

It is back in dude. Go to your profile and you should see it under your profile picture.

Is it possible to get local time on the profile pages liek we can on the forum, or at least select time zone etc.

I agree on the mod thing. Maybe just a "Report comment" on each page and an automatic email sends one to the UGP mods to take a look at it. Maybe set up some UGP rules. If one of the UGP mods notice some excessive spam by a user he/she could warn the user about it.
#13
I also think we should be able to delete our own groups too. So far I haven't found anything on it.
#14
I think there should be a group list somewhere, so you can look for groups easier.

#15
HTML formatting in the interests section would be cool. At least allow the break tag.

Oh, and maybe the ability to list instruments other than guitar/bass related. I know, I know, this is Ultimate-GUITAR, but there are some of us who play, or at least try and play more than those.

I don't get this whole copyrighted thing. Does that mean we can't put covers up? I mean there is a selection for covers and I've seen a few people (recently Resilience) with covers. Or do you just mean posting a song that isn't ours and claiming we wrote it?

It means you can't just put up a rip of a CD from other artists is my guess.

I think that Zapp should automatically appear as a friend for each user.

Also there should be a rule against starting a new thread specifically for the purpose of promoting your group.

I believe it's just that you can't put another artist's recordings up on your profile. For example, you can do a cover of Master of Puppets and put it up, but you can't put Metallica's version up.

Agreed.

We were talking about it the other day, and Resi thinks that mods should be able to moderate the profiles.
#22
Colours for mods on the profiles! So that if they get a PM they would know we are mods as well, not just from the forums.

Can we have purple? Purple is so pretty.

This is not a pipe
#23
I think there should be a way for the user to see how many people have rated their songs. It's a bit pointless having a 5 star rating for a song if only one or two people have rated it, I think. Any way you can get that up?
Also, can there be a way for the user to manually arrange their songs?

#24
Hey, I was just wondering, is it possible to see where you've commented on blogs and songs and pictures and all that? I know you can see your posts in the forum (thanks for putting that back up, by the way), but I haven't come across a way to check Profile comments.

Like a place that shows you what you've said to people on their comment pages.


Also, I would like to get an e-mail notification when someone comments on my pictures, just like i get an email when someone comments on my blog or profile If that's possible. :/

An idea..... add a Referral Count on to people's profiles.

What is the point in reffering people if nobody can see how many people you have referred?

And also, would it be possible to add what the user's current activities are? Like in the old profiles, I liked to see what someone was doing. Like "Viewing Thread: Ideas for profiles". It would be good to have that back

Yes, and he should set his default profile pic as this:




Under the community tab, there should be a part that tells you if you got new comments or not.

On the topic of people uploading copyrighted covers, somehow I think UG is a tiny bit past copyright laws. Russia ftw?

Also though, I think a way to change song order would be nice, as well as the reporting racism and whatnot.

I know, but I need one for my photos. I get them when people comment on my profile and blog, but not pictures.

It would be nice if we could choose what mp3s will show on the front page, I have uploaded 5 mp3s to the profile of one of my bands and would like to select which will be the ones in the front page. Instead of sorting by date, alphabet, or number of plays, that you could check the 3 you want to show on the front page, or something like that.

How about a delete function for profile comments and blogs.

The CP needs to be integrated with the profile options now and done away with. It took me a while to figure out how to change my sig since we got the profiles. Also, where you search for users by country, it would be nice if you could search by state. I would like to meet some local people around here

not exactly a suggestion, but a problem. IMG tags don't work all the time in group forums. they do occasionally, but it's annoying when they don't.

Here's a suggestion, how about an FAQ for the new Profiles?

Because I know there's one for the Control Panel, but I can't see one for the new profiles that could possibly be incorporated into one of the FAQ's...

Even just a little description of the different sections. The 'Add Missing Info' section is handy, but for example, when you go into it and click the 'My Blogs' section, it comes up with the 'Have at least 3 commented blogs?' and the YES or NO thing, but it doesn't really give an explanation of what exactly a 'Blog' is and what it's used for...

I don't know, lol, but it might be helpful to those people who to this day still can't find out how to edit their signatures...

Is there still a way to see what an online user is viewing? If so, where?

And if not, can it be brought back please?

I was banned, but was not able to personally access profiles for any chatting purposes.
