I hope I'm posting this somewhere biggas and admins will see it, and that it's okay to do so. This is merely to bring people's opinions to light on how to make Little Biggy as good as it can be. Hopefully admins will agree to some of this and implement it, but it's of course entirely up to them.
What ideas do you have to improve LB?
For me I would love to see:
▪︎Faster payouts for vendors:
Without knowing what it costs to run the site, I do think the fees paid per sale should be able to cover some haste with the blockchain.
There has been a lot problems with substituted items here lately, this could be avoided with a stock counter so a vendor doesn't sell something they don't actually possess. If a vendor could just enter how many grams (s)he has available, it could automatically pause the listing when it's sold out. It could be used for specific options on listings too, like samples/intro offers.
It doesn't need to be public information, but the system would know.
Would be nice to know what's allowed on the site, and if it's society only, and maybe an educated update to what's allowed. If it's purely based on harm potential, then there are other substances that fit the description, and drug class.
The only rules you're presented with upon registration is "do as you please but don't harm others," but there's obviously more to it than that.
▪︎More filters and sort by options:
Would make it much more intuitive to navigate listings, especially for new users who don't know what there is on LB instead of browsing through 700+ listings. The keyword feature is great, but as a newbie you might not even know what to search for.
▪︎The topics page:
Could do with a revamp with categories and a search bar. Sadly, more gold is claimed by the depths here than in the Golden Age of Piracy.
▪︎A gifting system:
This would be a minor feature that would bring more interaction to LB. An option to order from a vendor and transfer said order to another user for them to fill out their address and such privately. There are many friendships on here, and many friends like to give gifts to other friends but remain anonymous. You never know when it's the long arm with a long con.
I'm a bit of a night owl and I know many other biggas are too. Won't somebody please think of our eyes?
To incentivise some interaction on this post, let's have a giveaway;
Anyone who shares their thoughts here will be entered in a draw of a $50 voucher to any vendor's store. The draw will be on 10/12/23, and a name will be picked with random.org.
