[en] A feature that is on help pages but i dont find anywhere, and also think its crucial. A calendar for the entire group with sub-calendars for committees
[es] Un función que aparece en las páginas de ayuda pero que encuentro por ninguna parte, pero que pienso que es imprescindible. Un calendario para un grupo con sub-calendarios para los comites.
2return to the same spot you were previously editingfirst choice of abie, pietro, sunbird, ndeah, amanda, wietse, arif, ctrlculture, ana, kareneliot, kill-9
[en] when you edit a wiki, it should jump to the part of the text that you were previously editing.
[fr] Quand vous modifiez un wiki, vous devriez retourner à la position précédente du curseur.
3customized group home page layoutfirst choice of harcesz, lucidstrike, aay_pm, fhar, che, asc, brandon, johnduda, azerty
[en] Some groups are about the people, some about group documents, some about the projects. Group home pages should be able to highlight what they want instead of the members, group information and committees section commanding so much room
[fr] Des groupes existent pour les gens, d’autres pour les documents, d’autres pour les projets. La page principale devrait permettre d’afficher ce qu’ils veulent plutôt que la liste des membres, des conseils et des informations du groupe prennent tant de place.
4resize the wiki text editing areafirst choice of jessi, david, uira, sakura, michaelv
[en] allow the user to choose what the size of the wiki text editing area should be.
[fr] Permettre à l’utilisateur de choisir la taille de la boite d’édition du wiki.
5recent pages drop down menufirst choice of mcnair, bradley, marcor, whilelm, dnl, abbax, dbpatterson, chp68zip
[en] a quick way to see all the pages that you have recently worked on (or maybe last 10). Like a history of recent pages.
one way would be to have a “recent pages” link in the me drop down
this could also be the case for the groups and people menu. instead of a list of all you groups and contacts there could be a list of the most recent groups and contacts that you have interacted with. and then a link to the rest.
[fr] Un moyen rapide serait de voir toutes les pages sur lesquelles vous avez travaillé récemment (ou seulement les 10 dernières). Comme un historique des pages récentes.
Une solution serait d’avoir un lien “pages récentes” dans une liste déroulante.
Ce pourrait être la même chose pour les menus utilisateurs et groupes.
6WYSIWYG Text Editorsfirst choice of cherif, mitch, qwertyuiop, jonpatterns
[en] When you post messages to a contact or when you create or reply to a post, it would be in a WYSIWYG Text Editor so you can more easily write with a clear style. You can even use copy paste from previous pages and documents with keeping the style and layout
[fr] Quand vous postez un message a unE amiE ou que vous repondez ou creez une page vous auriez un editeur de texte WYSIWYG et vous pourriez ecrire plus facilement avec un style plus clair. Vous pourriez egalement faire des copier-coller de documents ou pages web qui gardent le style et la forme.
[es] Cuando envias un mensaje a un contacto o cuando cuando respondes a una publicación, poder utilizar un editor de texto WYSIWYG que te permita escribir con un estilo mas claro. También puedes copiar y pegar de otra página o documento manteniendo el estilo.
7OpenID Logon Supportfirst choice of scout, ringo, kwadronaut, gharbeia, joeldavis, mbxxii, nidi
[en] OpenID eliminates the need for multiple usernames across different websites, simplifying your online experience.
You get to choose the OpenID Provider that best meets your needs and most importantly that you trust. At the same time, your OpenID can stay with you, no matter which Provider you move to. And best of all, the OpenID technology is not proprietary and is completely free.
There is mention of privacy and implementation concerns about OpenID in this thread, here:
[fr] openID permet de ne pas jongler entre plusieurs noms d’utilisateurs différents suivant les sites, simplifiant ainsi le surf.
Vous avez à choisir votre fournisseur d’OpenID qui répond le mieux à vos besoins, et plus important, en qui vous avez confiance. Pour autant, vous conservez votre identifiant, même si vous changez de fournisseur. et la cerise sur le gateau, c’est que c’est une technologie non propriétaire et complètement libre.
8implement email alerts for certain actionsfirst choice of morg, lagren, gandhiano, marlon, chrisp, reto, sergiok, catastrophist
Not sure if you have this one in mind already.
people might not be checking crabgrass constantly but they do check email very often. It’d be really good if you could set emails to be set alerting you of things you choose such us:
- when someone edits a wiki you have edit or started
- when someone edits a discussion you have edit or started
- when someone sends you a message
obviousy the user will have the chance to select what and it will be disabled by default as no one wants crabgrass to spam your mail
9add css for a whole group / committee / wiki-pagefirst choice of chirlu, podeam, altemark
[en] It would really be great to have the possibility to add css four a whole group / committee / wiki-page. This would simplify layout a lot – for example the usage of icons in manuals for GUI-usage (Example: Copy & Paste)
[fr] Il serait vraiment excellent d’avoir la possibilité d’ajouter une feuillle de style pour toutes les pages d’un groupe. Ça simplifierait grandement la mise en page. Comme par exemple l’utilisation des icônes dans les manuels d’usage des interfaces (Exemple: Copier/coller)
10Option to kick/ban membersfirst choice of jefrancomix, lucker, drburtonsfriend, reeko, semantic_caterpillar, gerri, wwedler, black_cardinal, thoughtcriminal
11link directly to differences between to versions on dashboardfirst choice of queerfirebird
[en] the list of updated items on the dashboard list should contain a link to differences (like in mediawiki on ‘recent changes’ for example).
[fr] La liste des pages mises à jour sur le tableau de bord devrait contenir un lien direct sur la différence de version (comme dans mediawiki sur les modification récentes).
12Public comment capabilityfirst choice of elijah, micah, dmwilliams, tonne1, test_jessi
I would like to have some pages get feedback from people who are not crabgrass users. This is opening some spam possibilities, but I think it can be done with confirmation.
13Improved Documentationfirst choice of lucha, projetogaia
Detailed Documentation and help on how to get started should be top-priority for this project. This is may not exactly be a feature, but I find it truly crucial so add it anyway. I’ll see where I can get involved to improve Documentation.
14privacy for public pagesfirst choice of mara, circuit, maquis, ae2cb, jkl6789
if a page is made available for the public (non-crabgrass members) to view, they also get to see which “PEOPLE” (crabgrass members) have edited it. There should be a privacy option which allows you to make a page public but hide who has contributed because some contributors may not want to make their names/crabgrass handles available for everyone to see.
15Kick out inactive members from groupsfirst choice of bou
REmove inactive members from groups.
16(re)include a "finish until" date for todo list items
Include an option that an item of a todo list should be finished until a set time/date and remind the responsible person(s) as that date comes closer.
17Filter group and networks by language and open/closedfirst choice of ishmaelwins, dimqua
When you search or browse groups and networks, you should be able to select your language.
Also, there are many groups that say “closed” on them, and that should also be able to be filtered out. What’s the point of a list of hundreds of groups when half of them don’t accept new members anyway?
18Chat on pop-upfirst choice of gerryk
Just that, the chat on a pop up window by default.
19Possibility for negative Voting
- give a certain amount of points you can arrange between the items you dislike most, no positive points
- top picks are those with zero (or the lessest amount of points)
After the negative voting all those options are left, which should be ok for all (or at least the most). Unlike positive voting, which shows only the favorits and therefore limiting the range of possibilities of a group.
20Log option for chat meetingsfirst choice of dasilvaorg
Good for archiving discussion and refining into notes in case of computer crash and also makes for greater insight by members who could not participate.
If implementing this feature, it may be nice to keep privacy in mind. Perhaps an in-line notification during the chat session that the content of conversations may be logged. Maybe this could just be stated once, upon signing in to the chat session.
21Back up group contentfirst choice of betta
Currently there is no way to back up groups, which means everyone is relying on the services provided. While the crabgrass crew obviously will be keeping diligent back ups of everything, it would be a good way to bring some responsibility back to users to offer the possibility to back up a groups content somehow.
22To be able to DELETE YOUR ACCOUNTfirst choice of adela, sim6, jaypee, jolasmo, der_teppich
It’s amazing how we talk about privacy statements of Facebook, Twitter and so others, but here at RiseUp, it’s impossible to delete your account!!!
23Searchable user/groups databasefirst choice of catulo, sapito, boudicasrevenge, none
It’s currently really hard to find people or groups you want to connect with. One must browse through dozens of pages organized alphabetically – this can be a tedious obstacle to networking. The user and groups databases should be searchable.
24recognise email addresses
[en] For instance, we have an email list already. We’d like to be able to input those email addresses into crabgrass so they would be automatically approved if they provided the same address to crabgrass as to the list so the admins would not need to approve every person.
[es] Por ejemplo, tenemos ya una lista de correo. Nos gustaria poder poner las direcciones en un formulario de crabgrass para que los admins no tengan que aprobar a cada persona, podrian ser automaticamente aprobadas si dan a crabgrass la misma direccion que a la lista.
25El problema del idiomafirst choice of snoogenz
[en] When voting for something, the options aren’t always in your language of choice. Why are the voting options typically only in English or French?
[es] Como votar algo, si no puedes leerlo en tu idioma. ¿Porque solo en inglés y en francés?
26allow non-members to write on public pages
include an option to allow non-members to write on public pages, either using an anonymous guest account. This way people from outside could contribute to wiki pages, add comments etc. without having to create a crabgrass account which they may not want to have. However, this behavior should not be the norm but optional.
27Export Wikifirst choice of jjery
Possibility to get “raw text” of wiki pages (that is, the greencloth source).
28add Author/uploader in document versioningfirst choice of tubia87, spleen
add the author/uploader name when a document is uploaded so, in the versions’ history, you’ll have:
thumbnail | Version | Author/Uploader | day of upload
This will help answering a common question: “who @ù uploaded X version?”.
29Evaluation for surveys
Maybe I couldn’t figure it out at the time, but there seems to be no easy way to evaluate suveys. Responses can only b viewed by user, being able to view responses by question would make this a lot easier.
30Archive for user documents
My Group(s) has a convienient archive button to access its documents, but my user profile doesn’t! If I haven’t edited a personal page/document recently, or can’t remember its name, how am I supposed to find it? My user dashboard needs an ‘archive’ button too!
31User approval tracking
What about tracking who approved new users joining every group?
32Chat on layers
Chat on on-top layers, instead of standalone pages or pop-ups
33Send notification with custom messages to emails
Currently, when a notification is sent there are options to send to email and to send a customizable message, but the message only goes to the we.riseup.net member inbox and is not included in the email message. It would be helpful for people who receive a message by email to see the customizable message, as well.
34Delete private messagesfirst choice of seryn
Currently unable to delete message threads
35Prioritize personal task list
Being able to move around the tasks and put them in a prioritized list on the personal assigned task page.
mitch: try the “watch for updates” checkbox in the upper right… it is supposed to do make commented pages appear at the top of your inbox.
I’d like to add a suggestion or two, but am first wondering if maybe I’m just missing how to do it:
Make groups/networks open to join without approval. Or, more generally, more private/public options for groups, networks and committees.
And also, Specialize Network, Group and Committee functionality. I don’t have a specific idea/proposal, but it seems the three of these are really the same things repeated with different names. I think it would help for user-friendliness to have specific functions/purposes for each of these, but I don’t have specific specialized functions in mind.
Hullo! I wasn’t sure if I could just pop in a new possibility (but I did so anyway). I’ve been newly creating and administering a few groups, and having to individually click through multiple pages to feature certain content f aught my attention.
Would implementing the feature-selection via a string of check-boxes and a “Save Changes” button, instead of individual “Feature” buttons make things easier? And would it also constitute a minor change?
In anycase, crabgrass has been trippy! =)
Minor (I think ;-)) feature request: have a possibility to change the order of todo lists. Reason: Currently, todo lists are always shown in the chronological order in which they were created. However, this may not reflect the different (and possibly changing) level of importance. It would be ncie if there was a way to change the order to reflect importance.
i’d like to see events which can have different status and the preparation work can be documented. e.g. one committee plans to arrange event, at this point they just choose name for the event and status is ‘placeholder’. once things are going well and event will be arranged, status change to ‘planned’. committee can have all discussions related to this event and it is only shown to organizing committee.
Not sure if these have been discussed over the lengthy-life of this discussion:
- threaded discussions (so users can more directly respond to each other)
