I was browsing Discourse Meta and came across this feature that I think would help organise photographs much better, especially in topics such as the Community Members Spotted on Live topic. If you click on the link provided below and watch the video, you’ll be able to see that it’s almost like a slide show, nice and neat. All that’s left is to give a short list captioning the photos.
What benefits could this add around the forum?
Let’s start with the #live:va category. This now opens up the possibility for virtual airlines to be able to feature a short slideshow of photos in their official threads. It’s neat, organised, and professional. A huge bonus for them in my opinion.
Let’s move on to the #general category. Here we have the ever famous “Best Infinite Flight Photos” Topic. This feature now opens up the ability for users to make a slideshow of sorts for their photos when they have multiple uploads. This now makes things look more organised, clean, and, most importantly, easier to read whenever people have something to say. We can also apply the same benefits and concept to the #live category, home of the “Community Members Spotted on Live” topic.
Next up is the #real-world-aviation:spotting category. This opens up the ability to do exactly as I had described while introducing this topic. Users make a slideshow and can simply make a short list captioning their finds. Just like all the others, it’s neat, organised, and easier to read wherever someone has something to say.
I’m interested to hear everyone’s thoughts on this feature request for the forum. Let’s talk about it!
