A First Look At the Future of Dropzone.com Can't Post

Good day!

You may have seen us discussing our ongoing redesign of dropzone.com

We're aware that times have changed since our last website update, and as such we've been working hard for the past 18 months or so on developing the new face of the site.

But what we need now, is your help!

We're beginning to reach the end stages, and would love to get some of the frequent, long time members on the site to come and visit what we're working on and to give us some feedback and do some testing.

While we've done this extensively ourselves, having outside input can be extremely useful and we'd love to hear your thoughts on what you feel is lacking or what you like about our new design.

If you're active on any section of the website, and have been a long time member who is keen to see what the site holds going forward, and wish to assist us in ensuring we can provide the best possible website for you guys. Please drop me a PM and we'll get you set up with access and some info on how you can assist :)

Thanks! And we hope you're as excited as we are.

Limiting photos to .5mb keeps me away.

Make it so when you search a forum, the results are ordered by date. At least for me they are not, and I am not interested in 10 year old threads.

Neat thanks, I didn't even know that search menu existed. I meant something like a toggleable arrow next to the date after the search populates (same for all the other categories too if it isn't too complicated to do).

When is the new website to come online? I love the knowledge on the site and I appreciate that it's online, but the BB code on this website absurdly outdated.

And I love the classic look of current Dropzone.com. Could stay like that, for me. I am so used to it.

Yes, many people say that about a lot of things but if we went with that opinion then Windows 95 would still be the latest operating system and we would all be operating on 56k dial-up modems. Tech needs to advance and websites need to get refreshed whether someone likes it or not because it moves us forward as a whole. Many of the websites you enjoy today exist because someone ignored the opinion to leave things alone and they updated it anyway. If you look at other modern BBs, they are a lot more than just a forum. They are an interactive website that serves as a full resource for whatever topic they serve (e.g. automobiles repair or whatever). Legacy bullion boards that just serve as forums are mostly gone now. The only major one I can think of is Redit and to a lesser extent Craigslist. Pretty much every other one has been updated and it's far better now than it was long before.
