    In the near future the site will be undergoing a technical "facelift" in terms of updating servers, etc...This gives us the opportunity to add extra features to the site for the benefit of members. One of the things being looked at is an expansion of the non-paying members area (they would still need to register as members to be able to view it as currently) to facilitate non CL leagues/ club results/Leagues to be accessed - similar to that mentioned by Ross.
    One other possibility is a video section but now the purpose of this post - what other features would you like to see (the existing features will remain) ?
    No promises but I will collate all the responses in the next week or so and circulate to the admin group for discussion, along with Neptune for the feasibility of the ideas.
    Over to you but please let us keep this thread sensible with only ideas and no comments!
    If you prefer feel free to pm me with your ideas.

    Feedback/Revieww section from the membership community on everything fishing, tackle, clothing, fisherys etc...etc
    I do get fed up reading the biased opinion of those paid employees of a manufacturer.

    Agreed Affers - biased reviews are as bad as those who write about things they have never owned, tested or seen.

    Mark, I agree as well but that section exists 'Reviews & Recommendations' but it is mostly used by people asking for recommendations what rods people use.


    Rob, you're not the only person to ask about this so I feel that this is a worthy discussion

    You should receive an automatically generated email a few days before subs are due.

    On the main page there are fifteen topic headings, how about increasing to twenty, often when a topic is gone from the main screen it can lose it's impetus, appreciate you can access previous posts through the link section but when on the main page it is more likely to get a response, sometimes I don't log on for a couple of days and don't necessarily link into previous post headings so maybe miss a couple of good new threads.

    Just a thought.:smug:

    To be fair, when the chat box is not showing when you log in is a good indication your subs are due.:concern:

    Brian can't think of a good way to say this without sounding negative but the new site is building a video library which is already well under way.

    There is already loads that is common to all angling sites so maybe efforts would be better spent coming up with something different. Sorry I don't have any useful ideas but am sure there are things that can be done.

    Just to give some clarity to the video idea- it is not a list of links but homegrown videos of our matches or short clips of particular members explaining their set/up approach. I have been videoing my matches for some time and using the footage to look at my (poor) technique as well as putting short clips on my blog.

    Reduce the amount of subforums. Far too many and far to spread out
