New Feature Ideas for Discussions/Talk
I've seen quite a few good threads about suggested features for Massdrop to consider or add to their platform. Instead of making new threads for each one I figured it could be nice to just start a single thread and keep all the ideas in one place.
I'll try to update the OP with ideas as they come in.
- The ability to "watch" and item currently listed. The main thing this would do is send a reminder email the day before the buy ends. I know many people, self included, don't immediately join every interesting buy that shows up. Prioritizing and budgeting definitely come into play, meaning I often join in the last few days if the item is still at the top of my "want list." Because I browse so many communities, I often overlook buys I was really interested in, or they end before I remember to join. An "opt in" for reminders would be great. A really cool alternative would also be allowing users to have a personalized "Watching" page with all of the products from all communities they want to keep an eye on during drops.
- The ability for thread starters to organize the comments in different ways. Being able to sort comments by most upvoteo or in order of posting would be nice. For example, on threads like this the popular ideas could easily get voted to the top of the comments. A good alternative would be allowing threads to have their own embedded polls.
- The ability to tag users in a discussion [added 7/1]
