Ideas For Next Version of Dream.In.Code (Final Edition)

Post icon  Posted 17 February 2009 - 11:51 AM

We are finalizing the requirements list for the next version of Dream.In.Code and want to give everyone one last opportunity to vote for your favorite ideas and add your own ideas.

The next version of DIC will be heavily focused on usability. This includes a much better experience for those contributing articles, snippets, and tutorials. Better notifications, approval status tracking, etc. It will also include many more features for viewing topics you've replied to, started, etc.

We will also be focusing on helping users cut through the noise and get straight to the right answers. This will be an extension/variation of the "Thanks" system to help flag helpful posts.

So, with all that said, share your ideas, and vote for your "must haves":

I have been thinking about actually posting a code snippet or two, but I don't know what has already been done. Maybe a search bar on the snippets section?

Edit: Sorry Didn't see the link.

I'd have to second the search bar on the snippets section, so i can tell what has and hasn't been written if i get an idea

How about something to deal with repeat questions? We get a lot of the same questions all the time, and a way to search for a similar question before a post is completed would be great. I think that would cut down on the clutter and get more meaningful information onto the site.

Usability hey, done a whole module on that. Whatever you do, dont follow nielsen's hauristics. Apparantly, his the master of usability, and then you go too his website here, need i say more?

And i just thought of a great idea!!! Seeing that this site is problably bringing you cash by the bucket loads, why not start a shop where "thanks" can be traded in for gifts like that memory stick i am desperate to get my hands on! This will encourage better post and more interactivity by members. Pokerstars do somthing simular with great effect.

I think we need a general forum or a thread for requesting a tutorial. I know we have them randomly per language - but a forum in General would be nice.

I love the statistics on this site, perhaps a posts per day/per forum, members who joined today, most posts/thanks/kudos ever board, total posts, etc.

I agree with Bodom, as search bars would be helpful pretty much anywhere. Maybe some for the find member's posts/topics. There are probably several other places they might come in handy. Possible sorting forums by views and replies as well.

and this last one is just an idea, but we could separate the C and C++ forums to better help our posters as according what kind of solution they wanted to a problem. I posted a topic in C/C++ about it, just had the thought and wanted some more input! :)

We need the option to report users who are spamming the boards. Like the user "budgetmailboxes" who just used the Intro boards to post about his online business. I have seen dozens of postings like that by spammers but there is no option for us to report them anywhere that I can see.

I think a autosearch plugin would be very cool for new posts, however implementing it would be tricky. Anyway... i agree that there needs to be a "report this post" button (or, as stayscrisp so eloquently put it, "this post was not helpful"). Also, i've noticed that sometimes when i try to post i'll get a 403 forbidden message. Maybe that's a problem with cookies on my end.

DIC is the best! I've never gotten a quicker response then when i post here.

Oh, and i just noticed that I've been "promoted" to author (thanks to he who did this :D ). Now i feel bad, i haven't written a tutorial in ages :( I'm working on a "Intro to C++" tutorial, but i'm only about 1/4 way through. Better get back to notepad :)
