How Could We Improve Scioly.org?

Postby zannash » Wed Jan 10, 2018 1:30 pm

I am making this forum, because I want to see what you guys think about Scioly. Scioly is great, but there are a lot of ways it could be improved. I could hope that an administrator will see this. I have a few ideas of my own.

1) Update the photo gallery.

2) Make it easier to add tests to the test exchange.

3) This one is bit out there, but they should make an app or at least a way to get notifications on any device.

1.) That would be nice

2.) This one would be a seriously good idea. I remember when I tried running that thermo thing, I couldn't figure out how to update tests to the wiki quickly...I didn't have a ton of time and I couldn't do it.

3.)Why? I mean...you can just see it when you login...believe me, you don't want the spam for all the posts.

How about choosing the topics that you want notifications for?

Now that I think about it, being able to get notifications for just your events would be great///

I'm pretty sure all of these notifications things can already be done by subscribing to threads and using the email option.

Click the little tool thing at the bottom of a topic and click subscribe or bookmark and you'll get an email if you go into your account notifications settings and click recieve emails from subscribed/bookmarked topics (something like that).
