I've had banned people posting comments in my profile before.

Also, I would like it if we could embed videos inside of Blogs. I don't know if that's possible right now or not and is just bugged or something, but I'm doing these "UG Video of the Day!" things with blogs in my profile, and would like to be able to just embed vids straight into the Blogs, rather than posting links.

some one might have stolen this idea from my thread but oh well
How about we put something like a guitar 'whishlist' where you put all the gear you want to have buy dont have?

I think you could just do Blogs for stuff like that, or put it in your "about me" section (I don't remember exactly what it's called...). Cool idea, but also, how many people do you think would honestly read something like that?

The fact that you can now have up to 500 Private Messages on the Profile page is great.

BUT...


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,

Hey guys,

don't know if it's been posted before, but.. I was browsing the profiles today, and i managed to get an idea on how to make the whole browsing more ergonomical...

Basically, i found that it would be really cool if the MP3 player was separate from the whole site, and acting as a whole and playing the files you click on...

The problem with it right now is that if i play a song, i need to stick to that same page while listening to the song posted by a member. If i click on any other link whilst the song is playing, the song will cut out and it will take me away to the link destination.

My idea, was of having the mp3 player as a 'hovering' window that will still stay on the screen and keep playing the song wether or not you click on some other link on UG....

i hope you understood...might sound confusing....

and while you're already at it, you might aswell make a system that 'bulks up' the songs...so imagine that you're scanning through the website, and then you can just click on songs you wanna hear, and then they will just gather up all the songs into a playlist whilst you're on the site...and then you can just scan through the playlisted songs by pressing the 'next' or the 'previous' buttons on the hovering mp3 player...and also then be able to save the playlists somehow, so when you have a set of favourite songs, you can just add them to the player without needing to find them individually though the profiles every time you visit the site.

sounds good to me....what do you think?


All the best, greets and good luck!

When sending a message (and maybe some other text entry activities) to someone, you cannot paste links into the text box.

And I'd like to be able to paste stuff into text boxes.

I would greatly appreciate a section of my profile that lists all the comments I've made, so that I can see if they've been replied to and whatnot.

On the new Favourites area in profiles there's no way (that I've found) to delete favourited tabs. I know that you can go to the actual tab's page, click add and it takes you to the old favourites page where there's a yellow x to delete favourited tabs, but that's not very user-friendly. I think there should be a delete button like there is for the other My Favourites sections.

the new 'favorite tab' format is not as good as the orginal. it is less organized and there is no delete botton. so you cannot delete old songs and add new favorites.

I rather like it the way it is. It would be nice to have a short window of time, so you could correct spelling errors. But not being able to change it later makes it so you have to think about what you say, or your stupidity will be immortalized.

You can delete comments on your own page, as it should be. ("Pfft! I don't have to take that kind of crap on my own turf.") Be careful. There is no "are you sure" feature. When you open the delete page, any comment you click on will be immediately deleted.

My friends are warped!


Actually they're distorted. The "upgrade" in the display of friends is nice, in that it makes all the thumbnails a uniform size. That way, they all line up nicely. The addition of a star for the UG staff is a nice touch too. But the way it squats the tall pictures and squeezes the wide ones is a bit disconcerting. 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? or perhaps use the largest dimensions to determine the reduction ratio and leave black bands on the outside of the short dimensions?

It's really kinda ugly the way it makes some of the pics look. We need to know if this is going to change, or if we need to make the changes to the pictures we upload.

Thanks,
SYK

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.

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.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

  • Getting the time on the Profile Pages, like it is on the Forums.

  • Ability to delete favorite tabs on our favorite pages.

  • Add a "quote" button to the comments window.

  • Pop-up window for notification of Private Messages on the new system, while browsing the Forums.

  • Button to subscribe to ALL of your friends' Blogs at one time.

  • 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?

  • Ability to see who else is viewing the group, while you're in there.

  • 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.

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!
