Revision as of 15:42, 24 November 2008

Problems

  • multiple level of navigation (menu, submenus (top, bottom, right), tabs, other shite)
    • Fixing this might mean abandoning AniDB style, which is not particulary great interface wise. --Antennen 00:34, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
    • Consistency is something we lack. We need to decide on something that will _always_ be followed. --Antennen 00:42, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
  • heavy feel of DBness
  • simple tasks are well hidden "how do i add a new release for my group?!"
    • Task orientated interface. --Antennen 00:42, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Possible Fixes

global

  • fix tabbing so multiline tabs are possible (good for smaller screens and to allow more than 5 entries in the tabpane)

page specific Fixes

ed2kdump

  • expand by ability to add files to anidb (autoguess anime and episode by filename)

forum

  • The anime sub forums are rarely used, just the default "comments" thread. This is because things are so obfuscated
    • An approach where links are scanned and then paired with series or groups might be in place.
      • This allows discussions about several anime and the thread is still found easily.
      • It brings the database and forum closer together.
      • threadreltb(id, threadid, type=group,anime,producer,etc., linksto=1337, date, uid) might be a possible approach.
      • I don't know whether this will have a performance impact or not.
  • Some way to include anime info in a post automatically. Such as an image, title, airing dates, episodes, rating, etc.

up2date

  • kill it and move functionality into different features.
  • replace with an actual "files i don't have of the animegroups that i collect" feature as it should have been from the start
  • dunno what to do with the sequel feature
    • IMO just kill it. Make a report instead, if possible. --Antennen 00:24, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

my entries & mycreq

  • merge

my votes & my review

  • merge (a review is a type of vote) - Idea rejected

wishlist & notifications

  • merging would probably a quite hard to do task, but some better interaction of the 2 would be useful
    • Option to set notification type @ wishlist will certainly come in handy. --Antennen 00:29, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Do not open notifications in a pop up window. --Antennen 00:29, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Option to remove watched series in one click --Antennen 15:42, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

reports

  • merge the 3 types
  • Add title and description. Finding the right ones is a serious pain, maybe grouping them? <optgroup> --Antennen 00:34, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
  • When merging reports need to support userlevels. --Antennen 00:34, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

userstats, db stats, avmf, bulk msg, userinfo

  • move to the admin menu

userpage & myplace

  • merge (only real difference here is the submenu which should be used differently anyway)
  • Display what user is currently watching, etc. (on initial page). Makes it more community like. --Antennen 00:27, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

latest

  • remove/hide stuff that is useless for regular user
  • file, anime (somewhat), post, review, recs is of interest to average joe. the rest is more interesting to mods, advanced user that actually add content and want to monitor the additions -> different purpose
  • hot anime and completed don't fit into this page at all
  • present data in a more userfriendly manner
  • use tabs instead of the submenu after weeding shit out
  • remove the result# navibar

latest files

  • better filtering
  • show the user what he wants to see "which new episode of the new shit got out!!!"
    • Which is about the same functionality as the proposed up2date feature. Possible merge? --Antennen 00:18, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

calendar & schedule

  • merge (calendar as a tab in schedule)

my favorite reviewers

  • kill favorite reviewers page and implement functionality into notifications and buddy page
