With all of the recent changes to SH, I don't see any that were generated from user posts at the Suggestion Box on SodaHead Groupies.

Many of us have contributed site suggestions and it often seems futile.

Please try to post some suggestions -even the ones already posted in SodaHead Groupies- right here, making it incredibly easy for SH to see what we want.

Thanks!

    I originally posted this question when I thought SH staff might at some point pay attention to the wishes of participants. (Admitting naivety is difficult for me.)

    What you suggest is something I suggested in one form or another at least twice in the SodaHead Groupies suggestion category back when I still made suggestions here. Others have also made similar suggestions.

    It's a good idea, but apparently it's not going to happen unless a lot of participants begin raising hell.

    I've posted a couple of questions relevant to the topic, but generally all it does is get lamebrains pissed off at me instead of having the desired effect.

    Get rid of the professional writers that always stay on the front page and let real Sodahead Users back on the front page by popularity like it was in the good old days. Currently the pros stay up there for days and it's boring!

    Get rid of the level users that don't frequent this site and move to the head of the class by putting a widget on another site and then getting all the points here.

    Like you, I miss "the good old days" when users were important on SodaHead as opposed to paid contributors.

    I dislike the points and levels system. If it has to be this way, you're right. Offsite widgets shouldn't count here on SH.

    Back when all of these changes were made, many of us expressed our thoughts, but we were ignored.

    Take the Add friends option when you click on the leaderboard off These mass friend request can be annoying. People know how to friend a person, let them decide. Random friend requests via that leaderboard really aren't fun to get. One poster said they may start blocking people if she keeps getting them.

    I know it was added to amp up the activity on the site but it's annoying people. It's irritating and ignore them but the one person said she will block a person if she gets one from them. I hope others wont do the same. Probably not but I hope they won't.

    That would be the best change they could make. More people would likely have made the same comment if they had made that particular change when this question was posted.

    As much as possible, I have been attempting to participate in private groups that don't merit points according to the SH points system so that I don't move up on the leaderboard. That way I don't get more of those stupid requests. I've gone from a high position on their leaderboard down to number 5,000 or something like that. I prefer it that way.

    Yes I've seen at least three 'questions' about this new feature.

    I know of a person who rarely raves, answers or ask and yet that person was up on the board (two-thousand something on the board) so it's not even accurate. Being on online alone can make you be a 'victim' of it. (haha)

    See how those are all consecutive characters? SH only lets you do so many consecutive characters before it edits the end off and puts an ellipsis. If you'd had spaces in there, they wouldn't have edited it.

    Get rid of the points and levels, and bring back blogs!

    Oh, and the search box sucks. I can type in the exact words to an old question and select that I want "relevance" and it still gives me the most recent questions with one or 2 words that match.

    And make SH staff actually care about the opions of their users!

    One other thing....a spam catcher...no more Beiber, Twilight, Am I hot, and other annoying tween spam.

    Freedom of speech, isn't it? Those people don't consider their questions to be spam. Can't block content just because it's bad quality...although I wish we could.

    It's not about bad quality, it's the quantity. The same questions being asked over and over again is annoying and pointless.
    They should just find the question where it was already asked (this is where a search box that works better would come in handy) and answer them, instead of making that same question on their own.

    That's probably my biggest gripe with the way SH operates. Wading through a flood of stupid questions to dig out one or two that are relevant winds up causing me to do a "clear all" on all of them after an hour or so.

    Every time you click the rave button, you get sent to a profile page?

    Bucky, you should consider reporting this to SH staff. Use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page and select the appropriate menu path from the pulldown.
