Pro feature suggestion

I'm fairly sure somebody else has mentioned this, but I don't remember what the response was: It would be nice if there was an "logged in now" indicator, such as people's usernames being underlined, that was only visible to pro members. Or maybe there could be a page that simply lists all those logged in as you look. Just a thought.

Had an idea for a Pro Account feature. Make it so folks w/ Pro accounts can suggest Ibles to the staff that should be featured. Pro account members wouldn't be able to make the Ible featured and they wouldn't be able to suggest their own, but they could point the staff towards Ibles they felt were worthy of being featured.

The Feature Team is already mainly made up of "normal" members of the site (many of whom have turned pro, and all at their own expense). There's nothing stopping any member PMing a member of the FT to highlight a project, but they all get looked at anyway.
Maybe we need a certifiable list of feature team for suggestion, though I think there was a topic and group before...

Either way I think people will often ask questions about such things...
I am totally for suggestions, but I  think what Eric has been communicating to us it that he needs code not ideas... >shrug<
I meant 'for suggestion' as in so people could suggest featurable 'ibles if they feel that one's been overlooked, though it might open lines for 'feature meeeeeeeee' messages...

There'd be no code to implement, just a topic and making common knowledge, eh, commoner...
Ohh, misread that, sorry, I see what you mean.

Hmm, I feel awful saying it because it excludes a lot of perfectly valid (and frankly much better than me) users, but perhaps a pro topic for that would work for a trial run, and then if it seems to work we could give it a trial here with stern warnings not to spam your own ibles.

There is already a group for the Feature Team - not all the team are in the group, but it's a start.
That would be a very benifical idea, what im trying to say is, if you wanted a quick responce from some one you could see who's online that you know and comment on the work or pm them. of course the "see who's on line" menu will have to have a search as there is alot of members, like 10,000 inc pro and non-pro correct me if im wrong<br />Or instructables could make it only accesable to pro members<br /><br />Oscar<br />

So... you are saying you want PM chat?
Kiteman (author)  randofo8 years ago
No, I don't "do" chat (ask Lira - it confuses me).

What I mean is that (personally) it would be useful to know when others were online so that we knew where to go to for a quick response (I imagine a finger-in-the-dyke situation, where feedback is needed right now from somebody I know to be good with earthworks).

I guess the more sociable types might use it for live chat, but then that could also be presented as another feature that could entice people to turn pro.
