TOTW Topic: If you could see any features Bloop used to have, which feature would you like to see the most and why? If you could have any feature that has never been implemented here at Bloop, what feature would it be and why?
I'd love to see the more instantaneous communication features come back - such as the discussion forums, chat room and instant messages.
At some point I disabled most of these features, and I think these were important for keeping Bloop alive. I didn't realize that then, of course. I look forward to the team re-implementing them.
As far as a feature that has never been implemented, I think I'd like to see a like button. I was against this in the past, but in general I think it woudl be nice to be able to like an entry (or something like that) because it is at last minimal engagement where a reader may offer no engagement otherwise.
(This appears on every entry: If you like what you see, please consider upgrading your account to BloopXtra
. I like to keep Bloop running, and the premium subscription helps pay for server expenses and helps justify the time I spend developing it. If you don't like what you see, you are welcome to leave feedback!)
