    Functional Enhancements to the Aruba.com Forum

    Thought it would be a good idea to centralize technical enhancements we'd like to see on the site so the web admin has one view - suggestions/thoughts appreciated, complaints should be re-directed to FaceBook:

    1) Ability to block entire threads.
    2) Upload true resolution photos - to see detail.
    3) Ability to use the sort function on search results.
    4) Upload more than five photos.
    5) Replace the "15 second" time out limitation on searches with character recognition to validate legitimate submissions. "Type this word to prove you are a human" function.

    Nice to have:

    1) Chat feature.
    2) Live streaming.

    Another suggestion: Make it easier to post photos directly from the internet to the forum (instead of first having to save a photo to my own computer).

    And another suggestion: Approve posts faster.

    A little while ago, I posted some advice and helpful link in the Wedding section "Need official copy of marriage certificate ASAP".

    Not sure if an Admin or Moderator will approve it. For now, it's stuck in cyberspace.

    Wedding posts have to be moderated (i.e. no auto-post) as it can get a little spammy and bride-zilla-y.

    You can just post the URL of the photo... like this:

    Thanks, act1966. I think, I just got a bit "Carrie'd away" (Sex and the City style! LOL) as it is an urgent matter for this lady.
    Hope, I didn't come across too pushy, didn't mean it that way.

    Thanks, again!

    Btw, your photos from your last trip report were awesome! I noticed your own link showing your own photo album with lots of photos in high quality. Very nice!

    There is no post from you waiting in cyberspace. With all due respect, Andrea & I do our best to get everything up in a timely fashion. I must add, we kinda rock it

    It's just from my past experience: when I had posted in the Wedding section, my posts didn't show up.

    I'm glad you both are aware of my posts in the Wedding section. I'm as well trying to help this lady. From my own experience, I know how stressful and frustrating it can be, getting all documents and follow all the laws and requirements necessary. I'm from Germany and got married in the USA.
