There may be some old threads on this, but I'm too lazy to look.

What are some of the updates that DDOians would like to see happen to DDO? Please don't say leader board reform, I've been working on LBR for awhile and will continue to do so, so it doesn't need to be re-stated (now watch the first comment say "leader board reform!!!!").

Leader board reform.

No, but seriously--some updated BIG Issues would be nice. Of course, they must be more generic--so, I would NOT want a "Pres. Barack Obama" one, or one that isn't a pretty long-term/timeless big issue.

Please do POLITICAL COMPASS. I want to see what it looks like now since the Conservative influx of November.

LEADER BOARD REFORM JUST TO TICK YOU OFF!!!

Anyway,

BIG issues updates (rather obviously)
Features that one would have to pay for (Debate tournements, etc.)
Non-intrusive ads.
Juggle actually caring ^ which the two above will help achieve

I'll think of more.

+1. And cross-examination/crossfire would be nice, along with lengthining the RFD character limit.

DDO is a very small community as it is. The day they put a price tag on anything in here will be the day of DDO's funeral.

I'm with USM, ads wouldnt be a problem as long as they give Juggle a reason to pay more attention to the site. I think we had a poll on it a long time ago and the overwhelming majority said that ads would be tolerable if they brought benefit.

Am I the only one who thinks that Juggle getting more involved isn't all that desirable?

Not to sound really conservative, but I like the way things are, and changes should be kept to a relative low, in my opinion.

regarding pay for services, the other forum I'm on, bladeforums.com you can't send PMs, have a signature, or avatar unless you are a subscriber, and they are doing just fine. Though, they are not politically based.

we already have ads don't we. They randomly underline words, and if you accidentally hover over it, it pops up and gets in the way,...and if you accidentally clicked it, it takes over that page in your history. So, you can't return to whatever you were typing by pressing backspace.

I think thats a browser issue, not a site issue.

I meant banner ads. I don't want ads swooping in and practically filling the entire screen with, "GENERIC COOPERATION WANTS YOU TO BUY ITS PRODUCTS!!!" Or what you described. Banner ads. Like on Nationstates.

I imagine that most would, though I think what people are talking about is not taking anything from the "free" but adding more for the "pay for." That point was just to say that people will and do pay for online forums.

I would, too. But I wasn't saying in my proposal that we would have to pay for that; only for premium features. But I digress.

A paid feature system could make Juggle willing to pay attention to this site a little more. Also, nobody says that the current features have to be restricted upon payment only. I've been working on some ideas since I suggested this, and if Juggle is willing to implement changes, I think everyone would benefit from them - including Juggle.

What would people think of having a blog section? So we'd have debates, forums, and blogs?

That would be cool; although my opinion is that it would not be used very often.
