Also, I would like to see flepbird be the homepage
When I visit flepbird now it takes me to malware shit btw
A page that auto-populates all the submissions to YLC so you can simply hit the "play" button and listen to everyone's stuff without having to go from thread to thread--sortable by upload date, most popular, genre, etc.
A page that auto-populates the pictures posted in "pics you took that you're pleased with" so you can simply scroll through the photos and enjoy them instead of having to go through pages of a thread.
This concept could be applied to the funny pictures thread, most recent pic thread, memes thread (eww), etc., but the two I mentioned specifically are the ones I care about.
So, sort of like how Tapatalk allows you to browse through all the images in a thread?
The YLC idea sounds interesting!
the thing you were working on with richard?
Ah, that... well, that's a HARD one - totally up to Richard, and I think at this point he's given up on that idea and went back to making music.
WATMM Radio - the new forum has to come first for WATMM Radio to become reality, so...
Oh yeah, or a 'weekly watmm mix' or sth like that. Would be awesome!
Go into further detail - would this be a special page with all the mixes, or what?
I've not used tapatalk, so I'm not sure, but you could compare it displaying them something like pinterest. I just like seeing the art people create here, and i think the forum format sort of hides the music, the photos/art, and even the mixes so any way to create some sort of auto-populating UI that is convenient to use I think would foster more of the creative sides of the community and put it on display which I think is one of the most positive things that exist here.
In regard to the watmm radio/mixes -- in the meantime you could at least also populate high profile and user created mixes as well. Quality mixes like PSA, Solid Steel Radio show, etc. alongside mixes created by forum users or interesting things like the 24hr Aphex mix could really use being featured here.
It helps make this place be not only be a larger beacon for electronic music, but also encourage creativity and involvement.
Edit: my brother and I were messing around with a site where you could post links to music that you enjoyed and it would sort them into a pinterest style grid format. I thought it was really interesting and friendlier than most formats for browsing. I was going to link the site, but he has since taken it down.
If you want to get really serious you could create a craigslist style database for people to post local shows. Another way to improve the "live shows & tours" section by enabling an intuitive sorting feature. It might encourage more people to post their shows as well.
