2009 RiotACT site survey

By Jazz 30 April 2009 64

[First filed: April 28, 2009 @ 17:24]

Over the past few years, RiotACT has undergone a number of changes, some good, and some (in retrospect) not so. Here in the RiotACT HQ bunker our aim is to continuously improve RiotACT so it’s the best it can be for our community of users – that’s you! However, as much as we might think we can, we can’t do this in the isolation of the RiotACT engine room.

This is a shout out – we need to hear from you! (and be brutally honest, you know we can take it). This is your chance to tell us what you really think, as RiotACT would not be as varied and vibrant as it is without your input. We’d love to hear your ideas and suggestions for RiotACT’s future.

Thanking you in advance for your time to participate in the survey. It should take you around 10 minutes and any personal information you provide will not be provided to any third parties and only be used for the purposes of making RiotACT the best it can be.

Click Here to take survey (or follow the link from the site survey ad when you see it). It should take you roughly 10-15 minutes

Cheers,

The-RiotACT team.

Hey, goodie!! That’s excellent news!

Jazz 5:51 pm 29 Apr 09

Its similar to the one i have in mind too granny.

Granny 4:54 pm 29 Apr 09

Absolutely, but premium membership is no different from registration or readership in terms of risk. It would be good to have some easy way of exchanging personal information such as identity and contact details in privacy offline. Ant’s idea may be more the type of thing I had in mind.

It’s a safety issue for me, peterh.

understood granny. what I meant is that for some of us, ie me, people will find out who i am – it isn’t that hard, but having a group of premium members who would like to catch up offline, tee up events, etc and not put it into the diy wotzon would be a benefit.

Continuous partial improvement over an undefined schedule = infinite development

(I have previously heard someone refer to such a thing as “Your infinite-amount-of-money Project…”)

Jazz 2:42 pm 29 Apr 09

You’ll just have to wait and see wont you 🙂

Not everything will get a run this time round but i’ve got to draw the line somewhere or we’d be forever in development.

How about a ‘nutter’ function that when selected randomly capitalises your post?

Some kind of personal mail, like on UBB-style forums, woudl probably achieve granny’s aim better than IM (whenever I get a new computer, I spend hours turning off that horrible window messenger or whatever it is, it won’t die). Whirlpool’s got it, and I don’t think their software triggers workplace filters?

it doesn’t.

editing comments is a good idea, but you would need to time limit the edit so as to ensure that the thread flow was continued.

I notice one of the possiblilities for premium members was to edit your comments. Smart thinking that man.

For those of us who type before engaging mental spelling and grammar checkers or are in the midst of a frothing at the mouth rant, it would be a godsend to be able to come back and coreect appalling spelling.

Maybe make it a Premium Member feature… I’d pay for that. 😉

grundy 12:14 pm 29 Apr 09

Agree with those points Jazz.

All we’re asking for is the option to select from a few different themes, incase we don’t like the default that you’ve chosen. 😉

A “who are you, really” thread wouldn’t suit me at all.

Ah, but granny, you could still be able to chat with those of us now living behind the wall of content filtering, without waiting till we got home…

Jazz 11:12 am 29 Apr 09

To each their own fox. some love it , others hate it. Any changes we make here will undoubtely annoy some people while winning fans elsewhere (cept perhaps encouraging more positive and constructive comments rather than abusive rants, I’m afraid i’m going to invoke executive privilege and overrule if you want more rants).

One of the main reasonse we’ve stayed with WP and not gone to a forum based software is that forum software is usually blocked, and many news sites which arent are on WP and similar open source platforms.

A “who are you, really” thread wouldn’t suit me at all.

fox 11:02 am 29 Apr 09

I agree with the use of a better WP theme and upgrade to the CMS. I’m one of those picky web people that can’t stand pages without a clear IA and content flow. Not to mention ones that don’t validate easily.

Not a fan of the IM idea though

peterh 11:00 am 29 Apr 09

now that FB is recognised as social networking, and is being blocked accordingly, I think that an IM system would impede the growth of this site.

a members lounge type arrangement would be better, and the threads could include a “who are you, really” thread – for those of us who want to remove the anonymity…

Granny 10:54 am 29 Apr 09

Oh whatever that thing is … you know!

Skidbladnir 10:52 am 29 Apr 09

Instant messaging could cause it to fall foul of Government ICT Security policies, and cause a blanket ban on things, though. 😐
