How are you? Well I know I'm posting here after a long time as a lot has happened around me these days.
Today was just going through the forum and was thinking where we would like to take India Forums in the next 1 year's time. Will it go down with time with so many other forums coming up everyday?
So thought of asking my friends where they would like to see India Forums and suggest new features that they would like to see here.
Some of the ideas that we will be working on shortly are:
a) myGroups / FanClubs
It's hard to keep up and maintain so many shows and besides there are several other interesting areas apart from TV shows that people would love to know and share their views on. You can create communities or groups to discuss social issues. Therefore, it will be easier for members to form their own groups/community, manage and promote the same. It will also allow group owners to customize the look and feel of their community.
The same idea can be applied in forming FanClub where members can make a celebrities fan club.
Regarding the moderatorship, it will be on the basis of how active a member is, Contribution to the group and the amount of votes it gets. So the group members will have the right to vote for their moderator. The system will be more automated so that it's fewer headaches for us.
b) Improved BuddyList
I know many have been asking for this for a long time and it makes perfect sense to have something like Orkut on India Forums so that we can see who is friend to whom and can send PMs to multiple people in your buddy list who have approved you to send PMs. Even the idea to have Testimonials is an interesting feature.
I feel taking India forums towards a social networking site will be a good idea.
With the kind of reach we have we can surely tap this market as this will get us the much needed $$$ for newer development and expansion plans for the site.
These are just a few ideas which I feel will take India Forums ahead. It would be great to hear your views and what you think will be good.
I wish to see the day when people proudly say that they are a part of the Dev Team which manages India Forums. It should also be able to provide some kind of income opportunity to the dev team and the contributing members.
Would love to hear from you all...
