Here is a list of all the things I have on my to-do list. It doesn't look that big, but that's because I've been working hard lately and was able to get lots done. :)

I'll edit this post as new things come in and remove things as I complete them. Keep in mind some of the things on my to-do list below might not make a lot of sense to you, but I still need to do them :)



In no particular order :

  • It occasionally (1 in 1000) marks a player as a cheater when they didn't actually cheat. I need to fix this bug. Not an easy bug to fix as it isn't reproducible. I fortunately log "everything" when people play a game so I am sorting though the logs and hopefully will have it all fixed within a week or so.

  • I need a "quote" feature added to the forums so you can quote other users posts.

  • Add new towers and powerups to BTGTD

  • Have an way to see recent activity for a user in their profile

  • Have an option to see more "Recent Friend Activity" (like last 100)

  • Make it show which posts in the forums are new that you haven't read yet.

  • Profile shoutboxes

  • make it so you can create tournaments with a restriction on how many towers you can build (ie. max 20 towers)

  • add paging to the messages you receive in your mailbox

  • Add the ability for users to bold, add links, bullet lists, etc to forum posts.

  • add a community ranking based on the geek meter

  • add a grid to the map editor

  • Add the following to the tournament editor
    ( ) Test with no customisation points
    ( ) Test with your customisation points
    ( ) Use custom customisation points - set below:
    Extra time +- etc. etc.

  • Add to the community page as map that shows where everyone on the site is from.




    I'm sure there is more. These are also the things on my immediate list. I obviously have bigger things in mind for later (multi-level tournaments, etc).

    Let me know what I missed and I'll add it :)

    This is a good thing you've just put up... I'll be excited to watch the list fluctuate as things progress in this site.

    A "Recent activity" area on profiles, showing the last 20 or so things they did on the site. Whether it is "add xxx" or "xxx leveled up!" or "xxx just placed a pin on the world map!" "xxx changed about me" "xxx changed avatar" "xxx just created xx tournament" "xxx just beat 25 others in this tournament"

    Also is there a way to see more of the recent activity in the bottom right? Maybe a button below can bring us to a page that shows the last 100?

    Great ideas MidgetMan, I will add all your suggestions to my to-do list :)

    (as soon as I increase the maximum characters allowed in a forum post from 2500 to 5000. I ran out of room! :)

    More forum post features, perhaps bold and others? I am more or less suggesting this so that there is a bullet list function for just this post =]

    If your site really has it's timestamps for GMT, and GMT is 4hrs ahead of EST at the moment, why is the site at 12:57a.m. when my EST clock says 2:57a.m.?

    Maybe add +/- or Thumbs Up/Down (image) on forum posts and show their rating.

    "look into the google maps code and see if I can retreive a users timezone. I can use that to display the correct time for forum posts/etc for that user. Currently all time stamps use GMT."

    T2T2 (on the CC) does this with CC+, talk to him.
