CoffeeCup Forum Builder!
In the past I've thought that forums (forums generally - not Coffee Cup forums specifically) could use some extra peer related functionality.
Little things like peers being able to promote or demote a particular post. If a post were offensive and enough folks agreed it were it could be faded to background color (or close) - if it were a popular notion the post could be emboldened by peer 'vote'.
Coffee Cup Forum Posts are 'all' important, of course, - and it's contributors better behaved than most. But some forums ... I don't have to tell ya' ; )
Lots of little things like that. Forum spaces could be far more interactive and interesting.
Just sayin' -
Coffee Cup ?
I'd like to see a CC Forum builder. My pet requirement is a threaded post view, and an ability for moderators to break up thread trees into new posts. (Example: a thread is started on the benefits of cats as pets. In the normal evolution of the conversation several people begin to discuss the advantages of dog ownership. The Moderator should be able to promote the first "dog" post and its replies to a new thread of their own.)
Although I'd create some means of allowing peer governance to dictate what thread gets spun off to a new thread.
Also - remember VH1 - Pop-Up Videos ? It would be great if forums could allow for hide-able side comments (pop-ups) because in any forum - their is a need to mutter cynical (or not) commentary under ones breath - why not embrace the tendency rather than destroying threads with slug-fests that should be sidelined.
A new modern approach to 'the Forum' is in order... CoffeeCup ?
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
