    Now's your chance to give us your feedback about FishingMagic - what you like and what you don't like.

    And to tell us what you would like to see more of and less of when FM is built on a new platform. What works for you and what doesn't.

    Think about the entire site - news, articles, reviews, gallery, forums, etc, etc - and let us know on this thread what improvements you would like to see.

    Think about how you navigate the site, give us links to sites (not necessarily fishing sites) that you think are models of what you think are best.

    All your opinions are valuable to us and now you have a chance to help change things for the better before the new site is designed and constructed.

    Your views on the new FM onthis thread please.

    Thanks for your help.

    Theseare our sister sites Fish&Fly.comand Flyforums.co.uk

    I think this site is the best thing on the net and i spend hour upon hour browsing the forums/articles/reviews daily, its a second home, i love it.

    If i could have just 2 wishes to add to the site they would be...

    1. Small streaming video clips containing tips on various things from yourself and the many other great anglers here.

    2. More tackle comparisons, like FM's opinion ontop 5 bite alarms to consider...that sort of thing... i read one such comparison regarding Barbel rods and it was a class read, really explained each rods good and bad points with pictures, i think we need more comparison articles like that.

    Please keep up the good work, theres not enough words available to praise this place, ive never seen such enthusiasm in mass abundance as is present here.

    Paul.

    A 'viewed' counter on articleswould help those paranoid writers amongst us who think that no one reads ourramblings......

    Get rid of Bai............nah!( I had to put the i in just in case).

    I think this site has developed over the years to something that IS the best around.

    We must find something to encourage the lurkers out though, and the completion of profiles.

    Before somebody get's on their high horse, the completion of a profile, although some my think it's good to put false information on, is only to assist in helping to be more specific in location, and style of fishing. After all it's not asking for inside leg measurement, is it!

    The abolition of pen names, may help in that respect.

    I think Breamer's idea about streaming videos is spot on, this would really add a new dimension to the site and could be done without much hassle by hosting videos on a youtube channel and simply embedding the videos into FM the way many websites do.

    Not only would you be able to have some nice guidance videos to accompany articles (which for some people that cant draw like myself im sure would be easier to create than a sketch for example [img]/forum/smilies/tongue_out_smiley.gif[/img]), but you could also cover highlights from the fish ins etc which would be much viewed by regulars and hilarious im sure!

    Also being able to upload larger pictures would be nice!

    Other than that I have nothing much more to say, I'm a real newbie here but Ive got nothing but good words for what Ive seen of the site and community so far.

    </blockquote>I personally don't see anything wrong with using pen names. Theres only so many times you can have the same names eg. theres always a chance that there is someone else on the forum with the same name so you would end up being called JohnSmith226 or something similarpeople would eventually still be non the wiser.You have the abilty to find out the persons real name from looking at his/her Details/profile so as long as the personfills inhis/her name on there you could find out what it is.
    Denys Watkins-Pitchford wrote under the nom de plume of '&quot;BB&quot;', a name based on the size of lead shot he used to shoot geese. andI don't see anything wrong with that.

    Ok, call yourself what you like on the forum, but fill in the profile.

    I also echo freds requests, maybe the user should be prevented from progressing with the forum Registration formwhile certain fields are still empty (eg. Location, Real Name etc).

    I think the 'My Fishing Tackle'fields etc. shouldallow more than one item as most people use several different manufacturers etc. so it is not really accurate in its present form.

    I think that the overall presentation of the site is the best I have seen.

    The articles, Tackle reviews etc. are brilliant.

    I think it will be hard to improve the site as it isthough obviously there could be small additions but it certainly doesn't require anything major. The layout is good, the contents are better than any fishing site I have looked at and it is generally speaking a decent forum as well,like they say - if it ain't broke don't fix it!
