Hi all,

In an continuing effort to keep SA up to date and make sure we're giving the members what they want, this thread contains a poll of some of the features on SA that maybe some of the newer members aren't aware of, or just some of the ones that maybe don't get used as often, etc.

What I need for you guys to do is vote for as many of the features that you use on site. It doesn't matter if you use them a lot or a little, if you use them at all cast a vote for them. Of course ones that you don't use or don't like, don't vote for them. We'll be using this poll to help gauge the interest of what goes into Steeler Addicts. If you don't use any of them, that's fine we just want to make sure we don't make any changes to stuff that people use if we can help it.

Of course the the things like the Arcade, Photoplog, Fantasy Games, Shoutbox, etc..things that we know people use all the time, those aren't going anywhere. This poll is for the 2nd tier features.

We're looking to do some house keeping here before the season starts and this is part of it.

These features can be found on the black nav bar at the top of page, listed under "SA Games" and "Fun Stuff"

fyi, the vbradio is coming down for maint., depending on the outcome of the poll we may bring it back.

Any questions just post up :redcool:

Just an FYI, I just updated the SA Toolbar (http://steeleraddicts.ourtoolbar.com/) tonight..took down a couple items that weren't working right and replaced them with different links and options for you to use.

Keep the votes coming all, the more info we get the better decisions we can make on what features may need to be addressed.

I never use any of them.

I'll put in a vote for a mobile version! ;)

I like the fact that on game days I can click on the link and listen to the Steelers games on the radio feed. Thanks for doing that. That is something that I would like to see continue.:yellowthumb:

The radio feed will definitely be staying, I used it myself when the games aren't on TV. As far as the mobile version, that's something I've been thinking about a lot as well, definitely something we're looking into.

:lol: a SA app :towel:

Those are just a few mods. One is a mobile skin, one is to detect mobile browsers and force to the mobile skin, etc.

There are mods to use on VB for Iphone's, Blackberry's and Android phones. Then you would have to buy an app (about 3 bucks) to view the forum on your phone.

I've tried both ways and they all work pretty good.

LOL I was just talking to AZ on email about this very thing.

Android just released a new app to help users create their own apps. I haven't played with it yet but an SA app is not out of the realm of possibility :D

I was debating on using Tapa Talk for my android, that's pretty popular.

Steelersfan
07-13-2010, 12:25 PM
Tapa Talk is for Iphone too isn't it? There is one for blackberry's called Berry Blab.

BlitzburghRockCity
07-13-2010, 12:41 PM
I think Tapa Talk works for both iphone and android yes.

You need to PM or page me, so no gold for you till you do so! :hehheh:

If you don't vote for any of the features, that's fine, just let me know and you'll still get SA gold for checking it out and letting us know what you think.

It's ok if you don't use any of the secondary features so don't fee obligated to vote just for the sake of voting. We want as accurate numbers as possible.

Good, it's not just me or my 'puter. Anything we can do to fix it? I love Sudoku.

I'll look into it tonight. I honestly don't play it, and it's a 3rd party application. Perhaps we can find an alternative if this one isn't working correctly.

FYI for everyone...

I updated the SA toolbar so for those that use it you should see some changes. Those that haven't tried it out yet, it's a pretty handy little item that attaches to your browser and not only lets you access SA quickly no matter what you're doing on the web, but also has features like popup blocker, email, Twitter, and Facebook.

If you have any ideas of things you'd like to see added just let me know, there are a bunch of different options we can put on it.

We're also up and running on Tapatalk now too.

Ya know, the postbit on each post you make has to continually increase in size just to account for the high SA gold numbers you people have!

So yeah I can't endanger the well being of the forums just so you get more gold so... :nahnah:

We'll continue to leave this poll open until 8/11 or so. Any comments, suggestions, just let us know here. Initial results indicate that the 2nd tier features are not a very hot item on the SA..which is totally fine, after all they aren't the most popular things in the world when you're talking about a football fan site.

The vbuserbar tool and the Casino will most likely stick around, those are pretty decent things to have handy for people to use. The others, we'll see how the rest of the voting pans out and go from there. Thanks all for your input, we appreciate it...keep it coming!

No but it's on my to do list for this week yet. I've been doing some updates to the site the last couple days and checking into that is on it. I'll let you know what I find out asap...

Is there an SA app for iPad and iPhone?

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this one; I was on vacation all of last week and only able to check in periodically. I was actually thinking of making an SA app for smart phones; it's on my research list as we speak. We have alittle forum maint. to do before the season starts but other than that I'm definitely checking into this.

You can use SA on Tapatalk, just an FYI for you all smartphone users.

Thanks to everyone for checking out this poll, since we only wanted responses for those that actually use the extra features listed in the poll, we got some good feedback on which ones are used enough to keep around and those that aren't as popular.
