What do you want changed/added to this site?

Well, usually towards the end of the year I start thinking of how I can make MVAgusta.net better through a revamp. Last year this included a recode from scratch since i wasn't too happy about how i coded 2 years prior. It also included an increase to the width of the site in order to accomodate the "new" layout (increased right column, more media).

I have already coded a new gallery system being used on the Mondo Communities (Ferrarispot, Photospot, Spacespot, and many more in the works). The gallery was coded from scratch, and implements a LOT of web 2.0 features which will assist all of you with uploading, managing, labeling, and searching photos. (tagging, etc, etc). Web 2.0 for those of you who don't know features a lot of technology assisting in user interfacing turning websites into "applications".

Another new features will be a registry system that was coded from scratch to also feature web 2.0 features. Both the gallery and registry system assists me with approving and managing submissions so you shouldn't be stuck in a queue any longer (currently i have a few steps per profile to approve and get them public).

Both the gallery system and registry system will convert all of your current data over so you shouldn't lose anything. IT's a giant task but i've been working on making this an easy transition for quite awhile already.

The forum will also be converted into the latest forum software (right now we're using the last version, kind of like windows xp is to vista). Some changes, but nothing drastic. I've already done a test conversion for all of the 3+ GB in the database to the latest version and recorded all the steps it takes to convert this site to the newest software. This of course will require me to recode the remainder of the site, but no problem.

Some other things off the top of my head:
- Streaming media videos from this site so you do not need to download. The new gallery also already supports uploading videos with auto conversion (mpg, wmv, avi, etc) to flash video for streaming.
- More documents to be released? Say it isn't so!

So my question to all of you is: What would you like to see changed and added to the site? I will take all comments seriously, and very much appreciate anything you have to say. This site was built for the community to enjoy- and I hope to keep pushing this site to be the forefront of community technology.

This will take a lot of time but this is all about passion. Luckily I can code full time with the Mondo communities to support myself and create new architecture at the leading end of web development.

All support is appreciated on this endeavor!

Thanks for all the support!
Alvin

Being a techo- philistine myself, I haven't got a clue what half of that stuff you have spoken about, does or is. But best of luck with the conversion Alvin. This is a most enjoyable site. Long may it continue.

When viewing in the gallery section, each time you select the next photo, you need to scroll down to centre the photo on the screen.
Could this be set-up so that the photo self centers?

The spell checker for quick reply. If you check out cycleforums.com you can see what I am talking about. I dont need it anymore as I switched to firefox, but seems a few more than myself would like it.

How about the ability to delete photos from your album without having to delete the whole album itself (Is this just something that doesn't work on my computer?).

Could there also be a function to download someone's album?

The new gallery has a much better management area for photos.

As for downloading someones album, i'll probably steer away from that. If you want the photos, just go to the gallery on this site

Can you make it possible so that we can switch which image we want to be the highlight of our album, or sub album?
