Anyway, what is it that you think makes some members unable to see the gallery when in session?
I'm pretty sure the forum group we are in doesn't have the privilege for viewing the Media Gallery. If SMF works like some other forum engines I've seen, it shouldn't take more than three minutes to fix this (or 30 seconds, if you know where to find the needed option).
Although this isn't a big problem - we just need to log out to be able to enter the gallery.

That's probably it: a permissions problem. I'll  take a look during the upgrade/re-implementation process. :)

Bump here. I think we need more votes before concluding anything, as we are a pretty large user-base. Maybe I'll send mass e-mail about this.

One last bump. I may have to open another poll for this, but let me try here first: which features could you guys LIVE WITHOUT? XD I may have to disable a lot of stuff for a while, like I said before. I want to know which features to treat with the highest priority.

We really don't need the shop and the chat never gets used anymore. If we want to chat, we use either Skype or the Shoutbox.

Yeah, I could totes live without the chat. It's pretty dead now anyways.

Though if you could eventually embed a discord chat in the site, that'd be pretty snazzy.

I like the shoutbox, as it's where most of the site's activity happens. But I feel like if it was removed, people would hang out in chatter spot more.

And the shop? I've never really understood the purpose of it. I don't think I'd miss it if it had to be removed or disabled for awhile.

Anything else, guys? Profile comments, I take it you're using them? How about the gallery?

I don't want the media gallery, shoutbox or profile comments taken away. However, last time I tried to leave a comment on someones profile the other day, it came up with this message:



Any reason that may come up? I did insert valid digits or so I thought :deepstuff:

Least used: Add one more strike to chat and shop.
If only one thing would go, it's the shop. I don't really see what to use it for.

I think we should leave the gallery. (Mostly because I'm working on some quintessence fanart ;) )

But I've never really used profile comments or the buddy system.

To make a more concise list of the features I could definitely do without...

  • Chat
  • Shoutbox
  • Store
  • Profile Comments

To me it's basically chat and shop I can live without. Still don't understand the purpose of the shop and for chat, well we got the shoutbox. And we've also been doing meet-ups lately on Skype, so, yeah. Profile comments, maybe. I don't really use it that much, but others may do. And leave the gallery running. It's still ok and I visit it every now and then
I'm still alive. Object Oriented Programming subject has yet to kill me. Same cannot be said for Data and Discrete Structures....

The only thing we need is the shoutbox. The rest, including the forums, is objectively optional.

Honestly, I think we should find a balance between forums and shoutbox/chat, so after the upgrade happens, I'll review the "logistics" aspect of the site. XD

Thanks a bunch for your feedback. I think I have a better idea of where to go now.

@Dragon Mage: Thanks for the bug report. I'll look into that as soon as I can.
