What does this site not currently do, that you want it to do? Let me know!

If you have more than one suggestion, please rank them in priority. Thanks!

Add a trade feature to the classifieds or make a barter and trade area. The idea is that people often do services for items, or sell items for services.

Example:

Subject: Looking for someone to move a shed

I am needing my 10' x 16' shed moved to a new property.

Offerings:
1999 Ford Areostar Van - needs some repair
House Cleaning
Baby sitting
.....

I don't know how much it would be used, but I cannot count the number of times people have offered me different items or services for me to repair their computer.

I'd think machine learning has come far enough to put a muzzle on Groupthink.

Larry,

Is there any way to engineer things so that all you need to do is post the url and the “magic” will take place – something along the lines of the way it works with FB? Yeah, I know, I’m getting lazy.

Yes, something like that is possible. It would require quite a bit of work, but that's a good idea.

How about enabling chrome browser spellcheck for the WYSIWYG interface. It works in the old interface but not the WYSIWYG.

A direct image upload option would be a wonderful addition for us visual commenters.

One of the things that needs fixed is the ads. In firefox when you scroll in to make the site fill the screen the ads at the bottom leave the screen and they do not scroll with the window. If you zoom enough they disappear completely.

Two possible ideas for the site is a community calendar, and a scrolling banner or text for important news, lost animals, school closures, whatever might be important to the community.

The latter would need a couple moderators to access the importance and to allow requests to be run.
