2011 & Beyond for ARRSE - What do you think?

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by Bad CO, Jan 1, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Its the start of a New Year & I'm in contemplative mood thinking about the year ahead. Over the last year, we think we've made some huge improvements to ARRSE & clearly we'd like to continue the progress but are running out of ideas!

    Anyone out there like to give us a challenge or suggest something that would really improve the site?

    Porn :)

    Well somebody has to be first.
     
  3. Better access to " Help " e.g. " How do I embed a picture in a post ? " . I know there have been several threads to offer guidance / solutions but would it not be better to have a " Help / How do I ??? " Tab and all these write ups / guides brought together under one title . Every day is a learning day with ARRSE and the new version offers a lot more features / functionality and being a member during the upgrade I was able to pick up tips / hints / guidance which was offered but new members will not always be aware of how to create slick / more complex posts .

    2 Jan 11 Ignore this post ... now found Help ... but had to enter Tutorial to display .

    An opt-out for having pics we've uploaded automatically appearing on our profile pages would be handy.

    Ignore me. Just noticed I can do it via the options on the profile page itself, myopic muppet that I am.

    This is like asking the person who has everything what they would like for their birthday. However, to give this a wider audience, how about placing it on the front page as a 'suggestion box'. Replace one of the boxes on the front page for a week and allow people to make the wildest suggestion they can think of - you never know, there may just be a gem waiting to be shown the light.

    Can we have a Sheds forum. I am sure that there are sheddii hiding out there who would be happy to populate a lively forum :)
     
  8. I think I mentioned this on another thread but a 'Last 50' for the iPhone App?

    Isn't that what the 'Latest' tab does?
     
  11. ARRSE has pretty much everything really. Except the ability to make me a cup of tea in bed each morning. Fix that, and by this time next year you'll be millionaires!


    But seriously... how about a FB 'Status' type thing so we can all bore people with our one liners? I know some folk do that with their location, but a rolling one that is updated constantly could be a giggle.
     
  12. How about an area for Private Military Companies. PMC/PSD/PMT whatever...
    How about "Military Professionals Corner" as a name.
     
  13. That idea is almost as stupid as letting someone cut your cock off.

    We've got a Police, PMCs & Security forum - doesn't that achieve the aim?
     
  15. How about a facebook type bar at the bottom of the page...like this Free Web Toolbar | Wibiya


    A Last 50 link at the bottom of the page (or even a back to the top link).....and 50 threads on the Last 50 page....I think there are currently 19.

    An auto refresh for the last 50 page as well.
