Kiteforum Update 2019

Postby Toby » Sun Jan 06, 2019 11:27 pm

We will start working on an update for kiteforum.com this week.

I am open to suggestion to improve the site for you.

Here some improvements I will already implement:

- simpler home, taking unused features out
- adding more rows of topic headlines
- adding a tool so YouTube links automatically get embedded to play in the topic
- adding a link to the new video forum, taking out the video site

Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Please be aware that the site might be offline from time to time until we finished all work on it. Updates will be announced on this topic.

Thx
Toby

"Liking" (thumbs up) or "Disliking" (thumbs down). In many cases, people want to commend what has been said but dont want to necessarily "reply".

Or something like Slashdot, where you can upvote comments with "Insightful", "Funny", "False" etc... have 5 or 6 different categories.

But could we take two minutes and thank Toby? Cheers dude, the website works good :)

If you could integrate Woo leaderboard and PIQ together that would be neat. Write an app for our phones? lol

No app. The site works excellent on mobile browsers.

They removed the thumbs down from the Australian site Seabreeze because people had their feelings hurt, and they just left the thumbs up. Sadly I find that a accurate barometer of modern society when everyone only wants to get thumbs up.


Cheers,

Thanks Toby for running this nice forum. I read it a few times in the day. Would be great to have intergrated woo and piq and xsensor leadreboard data. Also maybe actual list of pro riders ( at least Kota riders) with links to their websites. Also maybe to set like riders top 100 or top 50 or 30 official chart as do others in music Dj scene, movies, actors and etc. i think its possible to calculate it proper of riders earned in various competitions poins and do proper conversion to the place in top list , of course For parcitipation in kota i will give additional point for each rider :) This will increase development of kite riders, events or similar scene. And maybe some forum resource page to kiteboarding hystory topics and similar to have it collected.
