Discord Galleries & Bulletin Board
So, one of the features a grand program like Discord to me is lacking, is galleries.
I love the forums they added, they work really really well. It gives the good ol' feel of your own community and you don't need to scroll, scroll and scroll some more in order to find your posts. Applause for that.
However, one thing we'd love to see (I run a few servers) are Galleries.
One of the servers I run is an art/drawing community, having fled from the toxic environment of ((Other site name here, with a lot of deviants and tumbling people)).
We are very happy to have our own little corner here now, but on a busy day, the art gets swamped and you still only see a hectic summup of what was actually posted.
Would it be an idea to have something like a Forum but with a Gallery interface instead?
Where the users can make their own little gallery, display their art side by side couple of columns instead of stacked on top of each other, and give each picture a title and a subtitle, with a side bar for comments much like the chats in voice and posts in Forums now? And maybe Full screen picture viewing?
The second point is a standardized 'Bulletin Board', like a frontpage portal with an overview of the community.
With a welcome message, upcoming events, with 'recent activity', 'New posts' in server Admin specified channels (for instance, specific forums and gallery, up to 4 or something alike) and 'Your friends are', showing what some of your fellows are doing, and maybe an announcement part with a snippet of the announcement channel's latest message/pin and a 'read more' to link it to said post.
I wonder if there would be more interested in this. :)
