New feature : direct contributions from any mermber
Published 29/12/2009 @ 20:22:11, By vilero
BUT (all innovation has a BUT), thinking objectively, have you thought in 'contributions' like

http://forum.imcdb.org/forum_topic-4910-33454-car_wash_1976_redux.html#p33454

Mini-pieces of a car, far & littles backgrounds, contributions in series already listed by others from the beginning, contributions with only a few backgrounds cars for movies already listed ......The new feature could be fine but it will demand to all of us 'cold heads' and well-mannered ways, and I don't know if that it could be possible :think:

We can still delete some, we are not forced to validate all.
It is not just clicking on "validate all" of course.
It just make our (ok, mostly your these times :grin: ) work easier, no?

Also, two possible feature:
- Disabling that contribution feature for some users (easy to add - I just have to make small changes in the database, I plan to do that soon)
- Selecting who can validate or not, in case some admin validate without checking... but I hope it won't happen (also easy to do... but I would have to check that I made that correctly :grin: )

Note to admins : do not validate too quickly the movie :grin:
Maybe I should add something so the user can indicate that he has finished.
It is maybe better to wait few minutes/hours and see if nothing is added.

Yes, I noticed that. I was mistaken with the new one of Kegare. I updated the movie to the last completed page while he was still uploading pics.

Maybe the new contribution system could get something that 'only when the contribution is finished' is when the 'New Contribution' could go to be seen by admins. But this would be done by the provider

I think that it is best to validate only if we see a movie in that list for the second time we visit it.
i.e. wait that it becomes a little older, as I suggested.

I'll have to check every single detail but sounds like a bit dissapointing honestly...

:confused: disappointing in what?
This is mostly for non-admin who send pictures and admins who upload these pictures. So as far as I know this does not concern you much :tongue:

People will just start adding pictures to anything, i.e. shows already started by someone else...

Still possible to not validate these or to notice the user. It is like when posting in the forum except that it is MUCH faster for everyone (you never process contributions, do you? :tongue: )
What difference does it make compared to what people post in the forum?
We can always delete things added and not yet validated. It is like not processing forum contributions then.
And as I said above, it will be easy to block that feature to some users, if they abuse of it. Like if some put all the time too much background cars. Maybe that could even be applied to some admins :whistle:

By the way, it would maybe be good to write somewhere a summary of the rules & how to use the site :grin: There are info a little everywhere (this topic, the "how to send pictures" which I updated a little, another about background vehicles and the guidelines on the site), and some info that are well known by us but not by new members (like the thing about series started by others).
So if someone has time, a well-structured summary would be welcome.
For my part, now I plan to add what is needed to block contribution rights in case we need it (as we will need it soon or later), maybe also something to mark vehicles for deletion (for the too backgrounds, with something where we can see who voted for and against), and of course a replacement of imageshack.
I hope that in the next days I'll be able to do that, but I do not promise anything, it is already a miracle that I found time for doing that new feature :tongue:

Thnx antoine, good job. Its a great feature, one i had used on IGCD before. So easy to do, works perfectly and no more needing to go to the forums to add new stuff.
I'm sure us regular users who aren't admins will know just what to do. It's the newbies who may come along and just start adding anywhere that the admins will need to look for as CCF stated.
Anyway, congrats

I know that CCF also thinks to what "happened" with Top Gear Australia some time ago :whistle:

Yes we all know what "happened" with that thing but it eventually got sorted out and weve moved on from that, but i guess thats an example

I hope so :smile:
Well, no new bugs in the night? Good :grin:
I fixed one big (but well hidden) just before going to bed, hence why I was late here on the forum...

When I press the link [ Add a movie ] I get the error: "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /homez.83/imcdb/www/ajout-movie.php on line 40"

I discussed with Rinspeed indeed :grin: But I guess there are differences, since the handling of contributors list is completely different on the two sites.

Antoine, this looks like a great feature. If I had images for some of the other titles I want to add, I'd use it.
