  • Suggestions, Anyone?

       September 17, 2004

    Hello, loyal readers!

    We're contemplating a somewhat major overhaul of the site, and we'd like to get your opinions / comments / suggestions / etc.

    • What do you like about the site, what don't you like?
    • What would you like to see added? i.e., would you like to see a more robust discussion system with user account access? Better design? More profanity?
    • Who comes here for the articles, who comes for the daily links?
    • Who would like the ability to comment on the daily links page? fark style comments or slashdot style comments?

    I realize that not everyone has a blog of their own, nor do they want to maintain one, so who would be interested in a "personal" dummocrats page, where you could use a really simple interface to post a thought every now and then, for instance, at dummocrats.com/yourname? Let's say that the user pages would come with the ability to use a link queue similar to one we use to enter our daily links? Would anyone use that?

    Not to sound masochistic, but what we want to hear are insults, "I like you site but I hate the logo, because I have a Mac and it doesnt look right on it," or "Your material is stupid" or "You post too many drudge stories" or "I wish I could customize the page so that I only see the latest 2 posts, because I always hit reload and my employer monitors my bandwith." We want creative ideas to help us make the site both more functional and more interesting.

    Basically, if you have any comment, suggestion, idea, whatever, at all, let us hear about it.

    Post in the comments here or email your feedback to james dummocrats.com.

    Thanks.

    I don't like that if i want to read the comments i go to a whole new page. why can't they just come up in a new window like they do on every other site?

    also, more profanity wouldn't hurt

    that's a good point re: the popups. I was thinking of adding an option for that. i use firefox, so i dont need a popper. :-)

    I'm not against making every single thing on the page a customizable option, right on down to "when i view the word massachusetts, instead make it show "taxachusetts." (and having that filter customizable as well.) (in addition to my lawyering skillz, i'm also an ace programmer.

    I know you're looking for constructive criticism, and as a regular visitor I feel obliged to reply, but unfortunately I really don't have any. I'm used to the arrangement of the elements and pretty much have a routine for scanning the posts and the news items, so it all works well for me. I'm sure whatever you add will be just fine. Keep up the good work.
