The site is about to undergo some big changes . While we are at it we would love to hear from anyone who might have a suggestion and or something they would like to see added to the site . If you have any suggestions please post them below or feel free to PM anyone on staff . We will leave this thread up until April 12th at which point we will work through the suggestions and then get started on the site changes . Thanks so much for making the site such a great place

Glad to make a suggestion or two but it would be helpful to know the sorts of big changes so that any suggestion(s) would fit the mix.
If those changes aren't for public disclosure, perhaps a PM?
Best!

You guys are something else

Yeah more of a one stop shop where you don't have to go from site to site to get information radar and stuff like that . Basic stuff like site theme and some other very basic things.

Aside from that , that's all I'll mention as the other stuff is very exciting stuff but will be announced next week.

So aside from the above mentioned we are just asking if anyone has anything they would like us to try and get done. We want to do it all at once so any and all suggestions are appreciated

Sounds very cool! Throwing out the suggestion to organize the new stuff by adding tabs for major categories, e.g. Forums (existing), Maps, Publications, Research...etc., each of which maintain your last selection until you log out. That would reduce the number of mouse clicks when you want to switch back and forth between a thread and Maps, for instance.

i would like to see on here a fresh feed. Instead of going back and returning to see new post, it would be great if we could have it live updated as we chat

For the Weather Links Thread:
Is there a way to set it up so that we (members) can add to it by category and keep it on one "page" (sorta like Wikipedia edits or something?). The categories could be alphabetical or seasonal. That would let folks easily search what they are looking for (e.g., MJO, teleconnections, free Euro, seasonal models, location specific details (set to your own), wind maps ....) so that finding (or adding to) several alternative links, by some sort of categorization, would be easy and user friendly.

A "Library" Thread that is categorized in some logical fashion and capable of being added to by members would be nice (like suggested above). Stuff like I put in http://www.southernwx.com/community/threads/weather-links.112/#post-17046, and Larry's MJO materials in the Blog section, and Webb's snow maps and other informational items could go there (as submitted by members). Plus, Webb has sent me some articles and materials (most recently some neat stuff on the WPO) that could be included for everyone's benefit. My though is that when folks read stuff and are not "sure" of terms and interactions, they might have a place to go look rather than being in the dark or feeling "silly" by asking/posting what they might feel others would take as a "stupid" question. Example - I'd sure like some resources to learn about reading soundings better ...

An "Archive" Thread that preserves meaningful/significant events (like the past few days) would be nice so that folks can go back and study particular aspects - which would not have tons of threads cluttering up pages (sort of like a Mac OS with a main folder, and various sub-folders).

Respectfully Submitted,
Phil :D

... also - please do not put up a "post a picture of yourself" thread like on that other place - some of what is there is frankly disgusting .... LOL

but - a geographic (Google maybe) map of member locations (wouldn't know how to get all current members imported, but it could be done as folks sign up going forward?) would be interesting ...

Firstly free pizza.

Secondly free dr pepper or vanilla coke.

Thirdly, it would be nice to have a inboard storm chat room. It would be a lot less formal than posting and much faster. Would really add to the immersion of bouncing ideas off each other.
your ideas are as nutty as mine - but tastier! :D
conference call with 10 lawyers all over the US in a few - this is more fun ... LOL
will check back in later (unless i'm banned) :eek:
