Request a feature topic

Greetings to all dwellers of this forum and especially the dash fight team. Let's create a specific topic to request new technical features to the forum. I believe, all of us have some ideas in mind that could improve the usability of this space. I'll be the first to point out the obvious. 

ADD. THE. REPLY THREADS.

Seriously, this should have been done a long ago. If I want to reply to a specific comment, I want to see my message as a reply under it. Instead, it just shoots my message to the top as a regular comment. It makes reading the post replies very confusing, because comments that reply to anybody just randomly hang there.

As I understand it, everybody has accepted that we reference the username in the reply to make it less confusing, but damn, it should not be the user's job. Please, take a look at how it is done at Reddit or Duolingo. Thanks!

To all users in this thread, who made suggestions to improve the forum: thank you! We have already forwarded the feedback and your wishes to our IT department. Some features, such as proper reply threads are already in development, and more is about to come. In the meantime, feel free to bring more ideas in this thread, and we will continue to make it a better platform together

What about variations for the order of message display? It would be handy if you could choose to see the most liked comments first or, otherwise, freshest or oldest

@ IntergalacticEmotionalBreakdown, the ability to start topics should be available to everybody, not just high-ranking users. Either this, or you should be able to create discussions directly at the main page. It is just damaging to the freedom of expression when you can't post freely

@ggwojack, @Tempsestbon, if we go all the way down there, it's best to have a full-fleshed loyalty systems at the forum. We could have achievements for different activities like commenting, replying, posting original material. Then - the more the user contributes to the forum, the more advantages they'll get. Moderation, topic creation and such

@Tempsestbon, that's a nice one, but why even stop here? Why not have specially assigned users that could moderate posts. They could apply to be mods, for example and be given permissions. The kind of a rating system for users would be welcome, in which more active ones can be granted with extra options

It is probably a bit early to ask for such thing, but it would be nice to have a "report" button. The forum is likely to grow in the future, and it might become difficult to moderate it manually. It would be wise to give users some tools to request moderation

I think that webpage of guides has too much info about other posts,so there is not enough space for the text of guide.Maybe the dash fight team could reassemble guide webpage a litlle bit?

Can we get more font options like strikethrough font? Also, it seems that "expand" option is unnecessarily big. It takes the whole screen without really giving anything? There isn't even a "post" button in this mode

Completely agree. Also, the image insertion is completely broken. Like, it only "supports" image insertion from online (no, it doesn't, lol), but even if it did, why not allow attaching images from your device?

It's a shame I can only like the OP once. Having reply option is a must
