Suggestions & Feedback
Suggestions & Feedback (formerly Site and Message Board Feedback and Suggestions until September 2019) is a forum where users can give feedback regarding the website, the forums, and the tools available on NaNoWriMo. It is most frequently used to suggest new features that participants would like to see available on the forums. Some of the most common requests are view all posts by users, new genres (both new genre lounges and new novel genres in the drop down), a NaNoWriMo app, and novel tagging.
This forum lived in the Mechanics, Logistics, and Other Technical Stuff category until September 2019, when it became a subforum of Support & Tech Help. Note that actual tech help queries belong in that forum and not in Suggestions & Feedback.
While not all features are implemented right away thanks to the fast-paced nature of the NaNo season and small technical team, the staff do listen to all suggestions and take them under consideration when improving the site for the next season.
Wrimos are encouraged to search this forum before requesting a new feature; if a suggestion is very popular, someone has probably already requested it. Replying to that thread makes more sense than starting a new thread (which will likely get locked).
This is an all-ages forum.
