Can we get close to contemporary?
I need first to state that I avidly love this forum, this hobby and very much this website. I have been here and active for a long time. Kudos to those who made it happen and have been able to keep it relevant over so many changes during the hobby!! Seriously. It is no small feat and I want to say that before I make a request...
I think we really need to become a bit more technologically up-to-date to remain viable and preserve the community we have built. Many of our members are are tech so I think this will be an appropriate request and echoed by others. I would like to state the following as my *requests* rather than start a technical pet peeve list. I think the Agon staff does a great job but with evolving technology we have evolving needs...
my wish list:
1) an iphone app or a fully iphone5 compatible website. After years of chasing the "send email" box as it moves across my iphone screen... and losing most, I really need this one to use the site regularly and actively. On a PC its easy but with travel and travel-related-downtime my iphone usage is my "free time/hobby" web browsing.
2) Please, please, please add an "ignore" or "blacklist" feature. The longer you stay on this site or any other the more likely you are to want this. Most sites have programmed this option. I find my own decade-old recollection is faulty on my mental hobby-blacklist and would embrace my own reminder of why I might never want to communicate or deal with an individual again...
I understand that an iphone app is pending. I quite eagerly await its launch (and would happily beta-test). Any update or ETA would be great.
Any other suggestions are welcomed too, but please keep it appropriate to a forum that lets us talk to each other, share our experiences + insights + learning, and avoid ebay/paypal etc!
