    BayouShooter Improvements and Changelog

    Hey guys! In the upcoming days and weeks I will be working with the team here on improving various issues throughout the site. We have put our thinking caps on and have come up with some pretty awesome ideas. We are limited in numbers and resources though, so I proposed the idea to reach out to the members here on what can be improved.

    If you have any comments, complaints, or suggestions on ANYTHING that can be improved here at BayouShooter, please let us know below. Anyone who makes a suggestion that gets enacted will receive recognition and possibly some small sort of 'gift' if I can put something together. I know each and every one of you loves this place and would like to make it better, so here is your chance.

    Submissions will be accepted in this thread via replies or via PM to me. This thread will be moderated strictly to ensure it stays on topic.

    Thanks for the help guys! I look forward to seeing what you can come up with!!

    --Austin

    Might bother some but would it be to hard for y'all to chew over the idea of letting people post in the for sale sections?

    Maybe make it so posts require op's approval or they can edit/delete posts in their thread. That way negative or unhelpful comments are limited.

    Or make it so the OP can choose to allow comments or not.
    Not sure if that's possible or not.

    Really like both of the above ideas I know y'all had issues and I'll even admit to bumping threads when I first joined but threw all of the problems there was a good bit of useful information in them too.

    This is off topic and to be clear I'm not trying to troll just ask that they revisit the idea.

    When I tried to look up old threads using the actual thread name, it would not come up. maybe it's me!

    But I doubt it!

    Allow people to comment/reply in market place. Let it be what it is. Or allow the OP to disallow replies.

    The rest seems ok all around. maybe sticky very usefull info at top.

    Okay, I just tested my problem. Here is what I did:

    Looking for the big "Joke of the day" thread by (CEHollier). I search for the exact title thread. FYI, There are multiple threads named "Joke of the day" but I got the one by (edman87k5). It was funny, but not nearly as funny as the one I was looking for.

    The big one (Cehollier), didn't even come up in the first 5 pages of results????

    Now, I happen to know that the op was (CEHollier), but what if I didn't?

    Also, shouldn't the search results show ALL of the titles in the search by alphabetical descending order? In other words; why didn't the search results show more than 1 "Joke of the day" thread by everyone that created a thread with that title?

    I only use this as an example, there are other issues with it as well.

    He wasn't accusing you. As for keeping the lid on trolls, I will be releasing something tonight that should help fix people trolling. More to come tonight. Expect one big change tonight, possibly two. Keep the ideas coming guys. All ideas WILL be considered.

    Have a better search feature.
    Expand the competition section, into say 1. USPSA 2. IDPA 3. Rimfire 4. Long Range 5. ICORE (see MS gun forum, theirs seems quite nice)
    Have a few more moderators to stay on top of things. (I see where Classifieds that are illegal stay up for hours and hours sometimes, and then opinion threads start getting out of line real quick and are allowed to go on and on before moderator steps in and corrects problem. WE have to police ourselves to keep this a quality site. I know more people that would join if these hate threads and race threads were policed a little quicker.)

    Just my 2 cents. and yes, willing to be a mod.
