    Improvements to The Pit

    We have a very talented developer who is in charge of making The Pit work, and we have kept him busy for a year doing important behind the scenes stuff like making it easier to join or cancel, easy for you to change credit card, easy for us to notify you before we charge you for renewal, etc. We are now ready to turn him loose on working on User Interface (UI) which is tech talk for making The Pit easier to use and better looking.

    So we want you input, what is on your wish list? Now please remember, not everything we want to do is doable. The Pit is built on a platform called vBulletin and we are restricted by its constraints. But there is a good bit of flexibility. So let us know what you would like to see us do and if we can, and if we agree it is a good idea, we'll try and git 'er done.

    Would be nice if somehow you get a notification of responses to your post. Or to follow certain topics.

    We've got both of those. If you want to follow a topic scroll to the top and click the +Follow button. That's all there is to it.

    To turn on notifications click on your name at the upper right of the screen, select user settings from the drop down, select the notifications tab on your user settings page, then you'll see all kinds of options for when we can notify you.

    Let us know if you have any questions on how to use these features!

      Do notifications include responses to a comment you've left? If not, that'd be nice.

      I don't want to say it's perfect, but on my iPhone, where I do this site 100% of the time...it's flawless.

        I need to practice then. I haven't been able to do it on the iphone much. Lazy i guess.

      Yeah I've tried to hit the like button several times on comments, only to find it's not there. I've even rooted around in the admin console to see if there might be a setting that would turn it on. Nada, Nunca, Nothing remotely close.

        That must mean it's not a vBulletin capability yet, so IT can't do it either?

          It wouldn't surprise me if a like button can be added using custom code. Glenn will know.

            A map of where members are? So, by state, there are "x" members in each state, and a map which depicts that.

              Yeah, we have talked about this but privacy concerns have kept us from doing it.

              Other forums I've frequent use maps that allow you to drop a pin as specifically or generally as you like. And it's completely voluntary.

              I'd be into the dropping of a geographic pin

              Doesn't the number 1 at the bottom of the pages do that?

              While I realize it's not what you said, you can easily navigate to the top of any page you're on with the "Home" key on the keyboard, and likewise to the bottom with the "End" key. For those of us who prefer real keyboards to demonic touch screens anyway!

              ctesibiusulpius, I wish I could "Like" your comment. That is a great tip for any web site.

            I think that's a great idea, the 'where members live' map, as completely voluntary and optional as could be. I don't think we have to worry as much as free forums. We talked about this a year or 2 ago, I'd like to see it.
