This is a thread where you can recommend and talk about features that you would like to see on Comic Vine. Remember, that new features are rarely implemented, this is more of just a sounding-board for what you would like to see happen. 
 
I'll start it off. I would like to be able to search my inbox for messages from specific users, instead of having to manually browse through thousands of messages.

- a board showing the first 20 people to complete each quest.
 
- a tab for Tasks, so you can do directly to the tasks page.
 
these are not new features but just requests for more, Trading Views videos.

@Caligula: I love the Trading Views videos, as somebody who reads their comics in trades I find them very helpful.

@courtney12490: I'd kinda like their to be edit, delete, and other such options under posts in pms.

I would like to see the feature where we can put those smiley faces like on Killer Movies Forums.

They already  have those on screened and on GiantBomb, I would like to see them implemented on this site as well.

Oh, oh, I would also like to be able to have search parameters, much like on screened.

The ability to favorite specific threads, not just forums, this is what I do now for them.

@Donovan Montgomery: I love that idea!  
I'd like to have trades be their own category instead of just creating new volumes, that way we could link them to issue pages like we do with story arcs.

I think this site would really benefit from a cross-reference feature i.e. how many have The Flash and Hawkman appeared together, that sort of thing.
 
Also, I'd rather these new options were put away onto some "Advanced Search" page, but that's just me.

I like the cross reference idea.

Perhaps include a twitter contact field on creator's pages (similar to how we have e-mail/website now).

I know that that has been mentioned before and I approve (not that my approval means anything).

I still don't know how I feel about the new search function. I miss the "Possible Similar Topics" though.

I would like to see a breakdown of how many posts I have in each forum somewhere on my profile page.

I like the idea of having a chat box.

Creator web links section

  • Add textbox to enter creator's twitter account (and maybe even show last few tweets on page) ( see this thread for details)
  • Add textbox to enter creator's "other" web site. Some creators have both blogs and deviant art accounts, it would be nice if we could link to both
 
All wiki-content areas
 
Comic Issue pages
  • Add single text line for alternate covers to describe them. Ex: Variant cover by XXXX. or XXX cover, etc.
 
Forum Posts
  • Ability to tag post to multiple items. Maybe limit to 1 per content type (character, story arc, etc.). For example, if posting a thread about FrankenCastle, then it woul dbe nice to cross-tag with "Punisher" character tag and "Frankencastle" story arc tag.

@jamesewelch: If you create it as a blog, there is a spot to type in names at the bottom. That blog will then show up on the associated page.
