@@@ OFFICIAL SUGGESTION THREAD @@@

It's nice to see the popup descriptions fixed, but when viewing the site on small resolutions, instead of having the popups always disabled how about making them just disabled by default? There is NO alternative to the popup description functionality; if the user wants to enable them on a small resolution then let them.

I also wouldn't mind a user preference to just disable the small-resolution theme entirely.

I was going to suggest this as well. I don't think (not knowing any coding behind the site) that it would be hard to implement it, since the code is already present in the gallery section.
Not knowing any specific coding either, the favorites table typically contains three things: ID of a given piece, ID of who faved it, and timestamp when. (Plus a primary key assigned to distinguish individual rows inside the table, which is not otherwise widely used).

The query for a user's favorites gallery must already join in individual picture data (to know the title, rating, etc.) so it should be quite trivial to sort a favorites gallery by the same options available to a user's own gallery.

There have been lots of suggestions about what we should (and shouldn't) do with FA, what we should add, what features we could improve. If you have a suggestion for FA, let's hear it! Mockups are greatly appreciated as well.


Please do not post bugs, or items that appear to be bugs, in this thread! These go here.

(Thank you, in advance, for all reports :))


===

Our first priority is cleaning up bugs and other issues with FA, but once we finish there, we can take a better look at what needs improvement.

More diversity when it comes to Pokemon in the species thing (don't know what it's called)

How about 'no' ? If you want to filter by something specific, that's what the Search function is for. THIS BEING SAID, however, the non-ability of integrating Browse and Search options is a major problem (e.g. why isn't it possible to filter by the Browse page's "Pokemon" option while also searching for a specific Pokemon name?)....

On the topic of the low-resolution / "mobile" design, I discovered another problem -- the tendency to auto-size submissions to fit the available width ultimately violates the ability of a web browser to Zoom In / Out on the page.

Make the mobile design the default assumption for low-resolution browsers, sure, but in the end leave it up to the USER to determine which design is better for them.

make the quote system so when you quote someone you don't have all of the text that the other user has and the QUOTE stuff its just really annoying

Blocking a user should not show their posts in browse or search. I blocked a user for art that bothered me, but it was still showing in browse so it didn't even matter.
Agree. This is an important missing feature that should really be implemented.
A way to hide certain account, either by blocking them or any other options should be made possible. The "other" option that isn't the block could still allow user interaction & seeing their art, but while browsing / searching, the user account that you hid would not show at all.

How about an Official FurAffinity Discord Server? Obviously, JUST one will be waaaaaaaaaaaaay too small, so there will be mulitiple servers that are copies with links to each other. (Example: Fur Affinity 1, Fur Affinity 2, Fur Affinity 3, etc). Fine details can be worked out later, I'm just throwing it out there for now. What do you think? Pretty good idea, right?

I don't have Discord so if this gets done I wouldn't be able to join :(
 
I really miss when the FA groups profile was a thing so it would be nice to have a group feature where people can make groups and join them. it would help share content and make friends a lot easier I think!

I access FA from an iPad often, and accessing my notes is just a little annoying. The way I've found is that I can click the little arrow next to my profile image, but it's reaaaally small on mobile and usually I end up hitting my profile name and go to my profile page instead of pulling the dragdown that lets me select "view my notes". Putting notes in the list of stuff you can access like "gallery" and "scraps" would make it slightly more convenient. This isn't urgent in the slightest, just a minor mobile annoyance.

Thing I would LOVE to see would be a Tag Blacklist. Please. Seriously.

There are a lot of things that get covered by the SFW Filter that I don't want to see, even if I have the SFW filter turned off (example: extreme gore.)

Theres also a surprising number of things that are, for lack of a better phrasing, clearly fetishized that don't get stopped by the SFW filter, which makes even browsing with it on a bit risky.

A tag blacklist would NOT be hard to implement, seeing as several other major platforms have already added them in (tumblr and e926/e621 for some examples), and it really, really, really needs to happen on furaffinity.

I have noticed an up tick in memes about donald trump being posted outside of the politics section. I'm worried that this heralds a return to the conditions before the 2016 election, and the seepage of thread topics about donald trump out of the politics section and back into the general sections of the forum.

How do we make our community robust to the influence of posters making political statements about candidates in the 2020 election in surreptitious ways, so that they can promote or deride political candidates while avoiding the tighter guidelines that posting in the politics section would require?

There already is a non official app that works fairly well. It's on the play store.

Perhaps they could implement an expiration date for threads, like 30 days after last reply like on the dA forums. My necromaster days are gone but old threads can still be tempting from time to time

Suggestion, be able to be notified when someone you watch's birthday is coming up if they list the day. It's a good excuse to get in touch on the day. Plus it'll make them feel nice to be remembered, yes?

I see you have a point, but there's a followed con with that.

One will feel bad when they aren't greeted, and provided there is even a notification system about such days.

It shall make people come up with overexposure issues. I know this can be somewhat lame, but maybe...

If one is considerate enough, they will be able to keep someone's day in mind and there won't be a problem to let them take a visit. I just don't wanna see another Twitter...

How about adding reply systems?

Quoting system is awesome, I like it when people do use previous comment(s) as reference(s). However, most of the time, what I see is replying.

I'm never against replying, nor do I want the rules to force people quit replying or anything. But you know, replying with quoting system takes so much space, especially when the reply chain goes very long and almost changes the tides against the initial theme of the thread. What's more, it often makes viewers harder to seek what they're here for.

To conclude, how about creating the reply system like Reddit, you can open and close them like spoilers when you wanna see the replies of certain comments or just wanna view the thread itself. Distinguish it with quoting function and make both buttons for the posts.

How's it sound?

The developer probably never made an app for iPhone. It's pretty decent if you use Android though.
