Hi All,

Just to keep you in the loop of what is going on here at Casinomeister, we are in the process of upgrading the software of the forum which will enable us to keep up with the rest of the Internet. I have been working with the backend for the past couple of weeks and it is amazing.

My question for you, is there any sort of function "wish list" you'd like to have in this forum (bookmarking threads, starting your own private clubs, searching PMs/conversations, etc.). Please let me know if there are any reasonable bells and whistles you'd like to see.:D

From a Rep point of view, searching PM's/Specific Conversations would be a great addition.
It would definitely help speed up helping members if they've got some problems :)

Can the search function be addressed please.

Unless its me not using it correctly ( :oops: ) when I type the actual thread name (assuming I've remembered it correctly :p ) I regularly get pages of stuff that I'm not after, maybe slightly related but just one keyword if that :confused: and rarely directed straight to what I am looking for.

Cheers!

Yeah - the forum search bites. It always has. A coupl of years ago we had it connected to Google search - but this was discontinued. Besides, it only allowed you to search for public forums.

I am looking at improving this.

I am not sure but I cannot seem to delete old PM's anymore...I can mark them as read / unread but I do not seem to find the option to delete them. :)
Maybe I missed it, in that case can someone tell me how to do this...I have 20+ pages of obsolete PM's to sort.. :)

Actually, PMs are renamed as Conversations - which you can "leave". By "leaving" a conversation you essentially remove it from your list.

Check the upper right side of the conversion here:

Click that and it should disappear.

Can we have casino reviews included in the forum search?
So for example, if i search for Kaboo in the forum searchbox, can the Kaboo review be listed as the top result there?
Would make checking whether a casino has a review on here/is rogued etc easier :)

Threadloom is a great option:
You do not have permission to view link Log in or register now.


Almost forgot, very important this. How about adding a 'Like' feature for PMs? That way people can back-rub each other throughout, and get highly vexed if the other person doesn't leave one :thumbsup:

The forum upgrade (assuming Xenforo 2) has this functionality, if the admins want to enable it.

is it possible to add option to pick black colour background?:D
Do you mean like a "night mode" for your phones? I know some apps like the Washington Post have this. It's good for viewing the site at night - it deosn't blind you. I can check.

Sticky threads may sometimes come in useful, so important ones can be held on the opening list for say 24 hours or whatever Bryan wants. If it's already there, forgive me but sometimes these do come up.
We already have sticky threads - do you mean like timed sticky threads? Like they expire after 24 hours or so?

Yeah - we will be working on the search. There is a way to bridge the rest of the website with the forum. At the moment, the main website which includes all reviews does this - but not here in the forum. I find myself using Google instead. Type in "casino name" and casinomeister. Which is pretty lame IMO.

Yes, I do. May help the Admin like MaxD or yourself when announcements about shithole casinos, warnings etc. are posted. :thumbsup:

  1. +1 on the "better Search" request(s).
  2. Further on that ... a speed search for forum member names would be lovely. Takes several steps to dig someone up as it stands, having a dedicated search box somewhere at hand would be most convenient.
  3. Related ... a tags Search = search restricted to thread tags.
  4. Speaking of tags -- obviously getting into Loo-loo land here -- private/admin-only tags? The point being that it would be great to be able to tag/flag/mark stuff for admin purposes. Likely wouldn't need or want these to be public.
  5. I believe the new system will have Bookmarks for threads (and other things?). Bookmark categories -- or something equivalent -- would be a dream.
  6. More flexible post restrictions would be nice, thinking things like letting experienced forum members and/or admin have longer posts in things like Tickets.
