Hi all,

We’re nearing the end of another season on Kopfans, firstly I’d like to say thanks to everyone that’s been here, especially those who have contributed videos, match post and like content, I really appreciate that as I’ve struggled with time this term and not been around much. It’s been great to see a variety of members kicking off the conversation and also so many regulars contributing to it.

As always I’m looking to make some improvements during the close season, here’s what’s planned so far:

Separate area for match posts with more details on games and better functionality – any suggestions would be welcome here?

Better post creation – It will be much easier to share images and videos within your posts, your profile will contain a list of all your posts and you’ll also be able to save drafts to finish later. You’ll also be able to preview your posts before publishing and bookmark community posts to read later.

Simpler post organization – I may have overcomplicated the options this season, I’m thinking as simple as:

  • news/current events
  • transfers
  • match specific
  • photo
  • video

again any suggestions/feedback would be appreciated.

Finally I’m looking to make some improvements to the mobile site for a smoother experience on the road.

I’ll be consulting on more specific areas of the site in the coming weeks. In the meantime if you have any suggestions please add them in the comments below, also if anything’s not working right and driving you mad please say in the comments and I’ll try and fix it.

Thanks again everyone!

For me, and maybe it’s just user error, device used or lack of knowledge, but I cannot easily find posts that are a few days old that aren’t on the main page’s list of “New Posts”.
If it isn’t one of the most recent five, to me it is lost. So if someone authors a good blog that looks a game or two ahead, it is lost to me to find it by the time it remains relevant.
Maybe since you have those categories, somehow there would be a way to go through an index or table of contents to search past posts?
That would be useful for match posts as well. Say we play Everton this Wednesday and I want to go back and read the post and comments from the first encounter, I could easily do it if they were indexed.

Hi mate, You just need to go to “Posts” in the menu, then choose “all posts”. Somebody else mentioned this before. I think It might be an idea to list all posts on the homepage. Thanks for the input.

Oh and if you go to “posts” then “match post archive” you’ll see a full list of the seasons match posts.

I’ll try and enhance this and make it clearer though. Thanks for the input

Thanks. Maybe it’s just tougher to navigate on a smart phone vs a computer? Maybe it’s just me

maybe, I’m just typing a new blog outlining plans to make this easier. Give it a read when published.

How’s it going jay, hope all is well with ye,
Is there anything you can do about the speed while the pages are loading, not a massive problem but can be annoying at times, for me anyway, also, can you do anything about the xxxx coming up for innocent words, that can be annoying as well, other than than mate, very happy with the site, cheers jay.

Hi mate, I’m OK ta, yourself? Yes some pages load too much content so can be slow, I’ve got something planned for this. As for the language filter I’d have to know exactly when it’s happening and add the words to a safe list. Maybe drop me a message when it happens. Cheers mate

Hi Jamie mate site is great for me I use my mobile all the time without any problems. One thing I would like if possible is if someone posts on a subject it brings it to the top of the home page. The other day I had 42 emails. If this is possible it would save me reading the emails. Although I love the site the way it is. PS don’t worry about warrior he’s always moaning. Alright warrior mate lol

Thanks George,

You can view all comments by going to the conversation page in the main menu. Also if your top your name/profile pic in the top right corner and go to notifications you’ll see them there too.

I plan to redo the homepage so it pretty much just shows posts, comments and the league table, so you should find it easier then.

Cheers for the feedback mate

Sites fine as only just really got used too it, but must agree about getting loads of emails on match days. But really enjoying the chance to be part of the set up

Thanks mate. There is flood controls in place for the emails but if your getting too many from a game just reply to one saying ‘unsubscribe’, you won’t get any more from that post then.

It’s something that’s due to be upgraded soon so should be a better system in place, I’ll keep you updated.

Jamie about the innocent words, even though we understand what people are trying to express, it would be nice to actually see those words simply because when we say “it was ****** pass or a shot” we actually mean it…

Jamie (admin)

I actually agree! But…

If we’re to grow as a site and attract new members we need to appeal to everyone, and in today’s world that involves avoiding the language.

The only issue I’ve found on the present site is that occasionally I have written a comment or blog and then found I have been logged out and have to log in then redo. I’m probably missing something as I’m not particularly IT savvy but if it could be highlighted when I have been logged out that would be a help.

Apart from this minor moan I’m happy to leave it in your capable hands Jamie and many thanks once again for the hard work you put in to make it a great site.

Thanks mate, that’s an unusual one and interesting to know.

Anyone else had this?

I’ll have a good look into it and see if I can make things a bit clearer.

Hi Jamie, I have disappeared for some time now due to work and relocating. Not had the time check in much mate, but from what I see you are doing a top job and I am as always impressed with the sites you put out and envious of the guys who are making such incredible contributions. Cheers !!
