I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. fix SEARCH on Destroid.com!

    Search is terrible. If I want to find a review of a game, I shouldn't have to look through a list of results after typing in the game's name on the site's search engine.. check out Gamespot's site search. It kicks ass. I just wish Dtoid had it, too!

    • Make it so review scores only show up on rollover

      I like the new review box, but I don't like that it shows the scores. I like to read the review before having an empirical number, because I feel that knowing the score flavors the text one way or the other.

      • Hide comment replies by default

        Rather than showing all comments and their replies all the time, I'd prefer to have the option to expand a comment to view the replies. Not only would it keep the comment section from looking disjointed, it would keep long back-and-forth arguments (which are bound to happen) hidden from view unless the viewer actually wanted to see them.

          I would like to see a 'random blog' function which would direct the user to a random Community Blog.

          • Delete cBlogs

            Along with publishing and hiding cBlogs, I think it would be a good idea to have an option to delete a cBlog completely. For example, I have a few aborted cBlogs that I will never publish and they're just wasting space in my "Manage Blogs" listing.

            • Disable autoplay when putting twitch streams on the front page.

              It's just as intrusive as autoplaying ads if one isn't interested in the stream.

              • Stop using Onswipe for mobile.

                Please stop using Onswipe. Not only does Dtoid load slower (twice, in fact), functionality is hampered. As a way to facilitate viewing Dtoid on a mobile device, Onswipe is utterly redundant. Safari and Chrome are easily a match for their desktop cousins and almost every tablet in use today have the screen resolution to properly display Dtoid.

                • Choose your contests (for HUGE members)

                  I would really like to have a fixed pool of entries, as a HUGE member, and be able to choose to put for example two entries into one contest for a higher chance of success. As a HUGE member I saw the contest that did happen and that I have now "entered" (although they are over already), and I'd get automatically in contest I really don't want. I don't want the Be Mine #9 Bundle. I would have rather put that one chance to win into another contest.

                  If you could implement that, that would be really great. You could…

                    • "My Background Theme" Options

                      When I upload an image, even a large one, it currently gets scaled up to 120% and its top-left corner is aligned with the top-left corner of the window. It'd be nice if there were some options like scaling, tiling, center horizontally and/or vertically, and stuff like that.

                      • Implement seamless, integrated GiantBomb style Destructoid.com Wiki

                        Implement a seamless and integrated Wiki that can contain entries for games, peripherals, characters, developers, etc. and reward users for contributing information to the Wiki. See: http://destructoid.uservoice.com/forums/10603-suggest-a-feature/suggestions/5482419-implement-a-1up-com-rpg-style-user-experience-sy for additional feedback.

                        Each Wiki page would incorporate all of the standard data that one would expect to find when looking up a game: name, release date, publisher, etc. in addition to links to all of the relevant previews, reviews, etc. Each Wiki page would be easily searchable and should making finding articles related to each game easier to find.

                        • Make a top 100 games of all time list

                          First let me say that your "Top 50 Videogames of the Decade" was amazing. It was by far the best videogame list I have read on the internet, and trust me, I've read a lot of them.

                          Having said that, I would love to read a feature about "The Best Videogames of All Time."

                          I'm looking to go back and play some old videogames and discover some recent gems that have gone overlooked. I, however, do not hav e videogame knowledge like the staff at destructoid, so I would love to hear your list so I can go back and…

                          • Tiered Membership swag, designed for prompting a sense of community IRL

                            Much like Kickstarter pledge rewards, I think each membership level should receive a specific kind of tangible swag, used for Dtoiders to identify themselves both to the world and to fellow Dtoiders. Making this kind of merchandise exclusive to the membership system, it bridges gaming enthusiasm from the digital to the physical. It could even start small, and scale to different destinations: stickers & patches, cellphone and gaming accessories (laptop and tablet covers, etc), shirts & hoodies and/or ties & (fashionable) scarves. It doesn't have to be a big thing: free ads and a pin or patch that someone might…

                            • You should keep double entries for Huge members

                              I think you should keep double entries for Huge members. It makes having a membership slightly more enticing with rewarding subscribers while not taking anything away from people that don't subscribe.

                                • The FOE color scheme: finish it, because I have waited for years to have a website actually give a damn about comfortable readability. <3 U.

                                  After seeing that the "experimental" and limited-time only "FOE" scheme offered you black backgrounds, the only thing I have to ask is the option for a complete retheming of the site as an option to change to a darker scheme page. It's so much easier on the eyes that it boggles the mind how many sites haven't at least thought of this as a full-fledged view scheme.

                                  I love this place more than pancakes. And I love pancakes quite a goddamn bit. But having the ability to read this site (that I spend a lot of time on) without turning…

                                    • Genre column & Enable filtering by genre within a system's game lists

                                      Right now if I go to one of the systems' Game Databases, there is no way to filter down to "PS3 games\Strategy genre", for example. It's either-or. I can either see all systems' news items (not even individual games, sometimes multiple games within one article) related to a genre OR all PS3 games. So to find games I have to go to Gamespot, but for quality writing I need to come back here? Please make your dB navigable.

                                      • Streamline the article presentation

                                        Not seeing the reason behind having large 1000x450 "tablet-blocks" for the "Upcoming Games" and other article lists - it's bulky, bloated, sucks up bandwidth and it's a pain to navigate, as is a good portion of this site, unfortunately. The first rule of GUI club is function before form.

                                        • add Google Plus share option to mobile Destructoid site

                                          Presently if you want to share an amazing Destructoid article while using the mobile friendly site, you have options like Facebook and Twitter, but Google Plus is nowhere to be found. The plus 1 option is available on the full Destructoid site. It'd be nice to be able to share to my favorite social media from my tablet
