Report Post: This feature has been gone for far too long, personally I feel PM'ing Admins and Moderators to take care of issues is a bit annoying to them. They've got enough work to do without someone linking them a spam thread that's probably already been taken care of. If a report system is implemented, it will make it that much easier for everyone involved. Knowing the post is going to be taken care of, and also knowing we won't need to send out an extra PM just because someone didn't read the rules.
"Enemies" also ignoring chat users: This is a feature that should be deemed necessary with the chat redesign. NG Chat is normally full of either Whinefags, or Know-It-All superiority complexes. It'd be just easier if you gave more people (including the children of NG,) the inhibition to just block them via UCP so less arguments and bans need to be handed out henceforth. Too many people get baited into the dumbest of arguments, with the most annoying and hard-headed people that prolong an argument simply 'cause they have nothing better to do.
PM from Friends/Mods/Admins only: Too often do I get spam regarding someone trying to plug their track personally, there -is- an Audio Advertisement thread and I wish people would learn to use it. I'm not here to review everyone's music at will, and nor do I appreciate having to read a message not correlated to my interests. This feature would make it MUCH simpler to isolate the usually Newgrounds riff-Raff for content creators, and help us in the long run by saving time.
Some basic AP Changes: The only reason I really came back was for the deletion feature, which should've been there first day of the redesign. Anyways a few things here and there I thought would be helpful to the Audio Portal.
- Ability to upload 44.1 KHZ and 48 KHZ
- Maximum File Size increased to 20 MB (Some of us have larger mp3's.) :(
- Multiple formats (ogg, mp3, aac, .mid or .midi)
- * Midi's for uploading melodies for other artists to use and whatnot, maybe for contests etc...
- Artist's Username can only vote on his or her own track once. (Just a fair suggestion.)
- Blocked users / Enemies also hide posts on forums and chat (slightly redundant request.)
- Automated of embedding of youtube / vimeo / hulu videos in news posts, and forum posts.
- Take the word "cool" out of the Video Games board description.
- Maybe have an upvote/downvote system for posts in the forum. (displaying both, not just whichever has more.)
- instead of needing to limit pictures to a certain size, increase the size and give them a thumbnails with a popout link.
Just some ideas I had I noticed work pretty well on other sites, not really up for debate but I'm pretty sure everyone has their list of what they'd like to see changed.
Now, for some Wubstep.
