Hi all. Q2A 1.6 beta is being readied. These changes have been implemented and can be seen in action on this site:
Q2A 1.6 beta 1 is complete, and barring any surprises, it will be released tomorrow (June 6th).
Sorry for my bad english..
1 - Login tab : users can choose login type. Example : facebook, twitter, vkontakte etc..
2 - Additional fields : admin can choose it to only admin can see.. Example : telephone number. only admin can see this.
Thanks for all your efforts.
A lot of people have been asking for better image controls so I think what would be great is a more general image upload plugin/API. I see there is qa-wysiwyg-upload.php in the WYSIWYG editor plugin - if I was to use that for the Markdown editor I would be copy-pasting a whole bunch of logic and permissions-checking that could be done automatically in the core. This could then be used by any plugin, say a plugin to allow a user profile image or whatever.
Also along with this it would be great to have an option to upload files to the filesystem instead of the database (e.g. a qa-uploads folder, perhaps structured by month/year like Wordpress). Also, resizing images.
Q2A is getting targeted by spammers now so I think some better spam control is necessary. A few options to consider:
Regarding the My Updates: it would be good to have an icon at the top that shows a number of replies/messages you've received, like on forums. Something like this. I would not include "updates to favorites" in that number, just post replies, private and public messages. On this subject it would be nice if private messages worked more like forums too. We have the PM store, but it only shows when you go to send a PM to that user. A basic page listing all recent PMs would be better IMO.
Can we also make the censor apply to user profiles as well as regular posts? Plus the public/private messages of course.
Edit: a request from my users - listing the exact join date in the user profiles. "2 years ago" is quite wide-ranging. I'd suggest something like "Member for: 2 years (joined 01 Jan 2011)"
The ability for plugins to list privileges on a user's page would be a bonus, for example "Banning users from chat" or "Creating new tags". In fact, hooking into most tables in Q2A is a PITA.
Also on the subject of privileges, I just found that only admins can edit user profiles. It would be nice if we could set that privilege and give it to moderators too.
May add more later if I think of anything...
P.S. it would be nice if you added my User Activity Plus plugin to this site, or made it core... I'm constantly trying to find old questions/answers I posted here ;)
P.P.S. It would also be great if you committed more frequently to the git repo. You can set up a branch to do 1.6 work on so that the master branch isn't polluted with incomplete code, then merge that back in when complete. Would also allow you to accept pull requests for bug fixes etc. Take a look at http://git-scm.com/book/
Anonymous Posting Process:
I think there should be a temporary registration form just below the posting form with Name, Email and Website for Anonymous Posting. [ http://www.question2answer.org/qa/19183/anonymous-posting-by-name-and-email ] So, Anonymous guys will able to select a question as a answer and make the post 'Solved' in other hand, their name will be there instead of post by Anonymous ....

Thanks Gid! This is my suggestions:
1. Remove accents from all URLs and working with all languages
2.Bounty award for question
3. Inbox and Notifications for member, like this :
4. Limit characters of tag, works in tag so long not good for layout web.
5. Shared Users system with Wordpress
6. Login options for user with gmail, yahoo, facebook...
7. Add friends to the list on the members page, receive notification when a new activity from friends.
8. Upgrade CKEditor version 4(Standard editor is recommended) Demo. Nice plugin!
These are mine :
1. Edit history
There's a plugin for that but I just can't get it to work. The idea consists in having access to every edit version of a question or answer, similar to SE.
2. Activities Log - Moderation
Every action performed by moderators and admins should be listed in a page only accessible by super admin. You can see chronologically every action of moderation, each of them followed by an UNDO button.
3. Flagging content
A small box containing the reasons to flag is missing. It should also have the option to set a limit of minimum characters.
Offer a reward of additional reputation points after a number of days after the question was asked.
Email alerts can get messy quite fast. A notification on the top bar displaying the number of unread activities is a lot better, such as Facebook's.
6. Combine logins
A person who's made a regular account can add his Facebook account as a secondary login.
7. Pay expert to answer
Quora features an interesting way to invite experts to answer questions. Right after asking your question the page displays a list of people who've already answered something in the selected area of expertise. Some of them are free to ask, some of them require a given amount of reputation to ask.
And for the website
A list of all suggested features, each one of them linked to a place where everyone can place their review. Every registered member can cast a +1 or -1 vote.
I have some idea to make q2a better and different from other QA
1. Enable user to add their Portfolio on profile
2. Add as connection or friend. (enable private message if friend confirmed )
3. Status Update like twitter or facebook with votes like in Q2A.
4. Notification for question answered, voted.
