I don't like change. Let's keep everything the same.

Thats why you moved to a new area where the ground is dug out and landscape is remodeled on a daily basis... right.. ;)

Back on topic.. I would like to be able to like posts on the mobile version of the site. Yes, likes are not an essential tool but especially in L2, when I read the posts on my way to work, I have to remember all the insider infos that I intend to like and then the 120s-delay throws additional logs in my rusty memory.

I also would like for L2 to have a different background color than the rest of the forum. That visual clue will more easily stick in the brain and its actually easier to remember which piece of information can be discussed in the public threads and which not.

Hope this is the right place for "suggestion box" items.

I like to browse by unread threads.  However, if I check back after the weekend (like just now) there are just too many so I browse unread threads section by section.  Once I've opened the threads of interest to other tabs I then select the "MARK READ" button.  This puts my browser back to the top of the  Forums page.  I then need to page down to get back to where I left off.  I would rather be directed to the Forums page at the section I just finished browsing. So if I just finished browsing the SpaceX section I'd like the MARK READ button to put me here.  This facilitates moving down the forum section by section.  ... Thanks!

I'd like the option to get email notifications of posts with x number of likes in any thread.

When the forum gets revamped it might be nice to add a little vertical spacing between attachments at the end of the post (or have some way to group document attachments separately from image attachments).  If a document and an image are both attached the link for the document is right up against the image.

I had a dream last night that the site went holographic. Ah, dreams...

In reality, it would be interesting to have an optional "node-based" mode for threads and comments, that can link to other threads and comments similar to the visuwords thesaurus:

I find that I am browsing the web more and more on my iPad. One issue that I am running into is that there are quite a few videos on the site (especially the historical ones) that are not in a playable format (WMV usually). I would be willing to pay a extra to have the website transcode or stream those videos when I am browsing on my iPad. If not possible, I would also be willing to help transcode them to a different format.

JohnR,

Welcome to the site.  I post most of the Historic videos on this site (as well as others), and I usually point them to YouTube.  I usually provide two links (for those with TapTalk).  I tried the following thread (http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=44262.0 ) on my IPad and had no issues viewing the video directly in the thread or using the link to bring up and view the YouTube app.  Perhaps there is some setting that is causing this to happen to you (which I'm not aware of to assist you).  By the way, most if not all of these videos are on mp4 on YouTube.

Hope you the best.

There are quite a few older videos in L2 that were not posted by you and are in .wmv format.

edit:  A lot of stuff in the public side NSF Video Collection thread are also in .wmv

I See, it's the direct uploads of members videos to NSF that are of issue.  I got it now.

catdir,

Thank you for welcome. I didn't meant to insult the fine work that other members have done on the site. I like a lot of the historical stuff and some of those videos were uploaded to the site several years ago. I made the change from MS to Apple and it takes some work to make WMV videos play. I certainly would be willing to pitch in help to transcode them.

Would VLC for iOS be of any help to you (it will play several versions of .wmv files)?

AnalogMan,

Yes, VLC is helpful.
