Care to elaborate on trhe purpose of these and how they would work?
Presumably to make browsing easier, giving the user an idea of the OP's intended content (cuz shit happens)>not OP
I picked up on the idea when i was browsing Kiwifarms, threads there have tags and posts can be awarded with stickers.
Its an option to make the boards a little more interesting by adding funny little markers that tell you what the thread is about before even reading its title.
You know this is actually a good idea, I'm not sure how many stickers but some stickers could benefit.
Now and then I see an anon misjudging the thread whitout reading, a tldr "sticker" could help that.
I kind of feel like it would just encourage laziness on both sides though...
Maybe, maybe not, maybe it would turn our board into a hivemind
Yeah, it doesn't feel necessary to me.
I like it, but all stickers must be pre-approved by the community and filtering certain stickers out shouldn't be an option. Horsepussy is part of who we are.
well almost 2 months have passed now...
so i take it we have no actual developer anymore on board to realize such (or other) new features for the site? not gonna lie, that is quite disappointing.
At the time the suggestions were first made, the lead developer looked at it and thought the suggested changes were generally undesirable
so say we have some other technical suggestion for the sites advancement, how long would it aproximately take to implement anything new to the site start to finish?
Depends on the technical suggestion, I would assume. I am not a developer and I cannot guess as to how difficult whichever changes are, but we have two active developers, both of whom are reasonably competent. They are a bit shy and less likely to respond directly to technical questions (which they sometimes do), but they are here. Certain technical changes can be made simply by changes to configuration, which I can do myself.
