Prioritize Steepster's next steps [POLL]
I’m looking to put in some dev work over the next few weeks & months. I was told to read through a the rather old thread “Which new features do you want the most?”.
There’s quite a lot of requests! In order to prioritize the development roadmap I’ve compiled a list. Please vote on which feature every1 would prefer most.
I’ll begin development on them in the order of most votes and working my way down.
So many good choices, I don’t know how to narrow it down. Does it maybe make sense to allow 2 or 3 selections?
Also, we already have the option to use ml or oz in tasting notes. I think what Martin was asking for is for Steepster to “remember” what he had selected last so he doesn’t have to toggle it every time.
And as a note to everyone else, we technically already can add new flavors/ingredients to the database, it’s just that only moderators have access to it. So we could create a thread for these types of suggestions as a workaround. Just a thought.
Please do the best you can. I’d rather not whittle down any further. Believe it or not this was already shortened!
A lot of features may have overlapping dependencies, code wise. It’ll be more efficient on my end to architect the roadmap if sequential features may have overlapping functionally once I’m in the weeds.
Oh no, I wasn’t suggesting to reduce the number of options, I just meant to allow us to select multiple things potentially.
Ahh, ok I’ve made it multiple choice. My worry is some options will come in as a tie.
I’ll let it go for now though and see what happens.
Thank you for this! Encouraging to know there may be improvements in the works.
YES thank you for putting things in motion AND asking our opinion! And I also want to say the decrease in spam over the last couple of years has been noticed and appreciated. :D
Thank you! Looking forward to seeing the changes.
Thank you for doing this and asking for our input!
My first fix priority would be getting my e-mail alerts on comment replies/forum replies back? It has been years. They just stopped one day – no changes on my part that I can remember…
As others have said, thanks for putting this together.
I agree that getting my email alerts back would be a priority. The “Notify me” option is basically useless now.
I also hope this site will continue to work in IE11.
Have you not been receiving this thread’s notifications on new replies? Or is this a different email notification not functioning?
I don’t receive any e-mail notifications on any threads or tasting notes (or anything else that would get e-mail notifications).
Same here. I don’t think I’ve received any emails from Steepster at all in at least a couple years.
To be super clear here, you are not receiving “New reply to …” email? This is going to your cursive gmail acct. Can you check your spam folder?
I’ll have to go digging deeper if not in spam as I’ve been unable to replicate. I have been receiving them.
Shae, in your case you were not subscribed to this topic (at the bottom checkbox that says “Notify me when this topic is updated”). I manually added you – testing reply email…
Yes, I just checked spam too, nothing there – no e-mails from Steepster AT ALL, for at least a couple years, like Shae said.
Hi Tom, thanks for testing. I didn’t receive anything, either in my inbox or spam folder. I used to receive emails for comments/messages/followers, as well as discussion updates, and none of these have been coming through for a while.
ok, throwing a few things at the wall here. added a missing spf record. did that work?
Hi all, results are in.
