I set up an unnoficial Ubiquiti Discord channel for those that would like to have real time interaction regarding Ubiquiti products. In the two days since I posted it to /r/Ubiquiti, we have a good number of active members.
If anyone is interested please use the link below to join.
It would be awesome to see some form of WoL implemented to wake clients on the LAN side via the controller/USG.
I have been working for days to figure out how to get a working solution to accomplish waking clients on the LAN from the WAN side. That feature I believe would be a selling point for some people considering no other companies offer it.
Edit: Clarity of request
Crawling through the forums for a while, I've been pleased to find that there is a lot of great feedback coming from UBNT employees as well as users. From time-to-time there are also roadmap updates, which are awesome, too. It's a wonderful thing when users and developers have such great synergy in a community.
Something I think that would help foster this feedback cycle is a public issue tracker, such as Jira or similar. For anyone not familiar with this concept -- An issue tracker enumerates, among other things, features, problems, and bug fixes, in a way that transparrently shows the ongoing status of those various issues as well as history and ultimate resolutions for all issues.
This kind of feedback already happens in a small way here on the forums, but I think a bonafide public issue tracker would be awesome; even if users can't raise issues directly, it's nice to know what you guys are working on and what ideas have already been brought up and resolved in some way, without having to dig through all forum posts since the beginning of time.
Also, using Jira as an example, users can 'vote' (or otherwise express their opinions and expertise on an issue) allowing users to provide feedback to developers in a way that easily conveys where the communities interests lie.
This is an example in the wild of a Jira issue from Atlassians public tracker. The issue, started in 2011, came from user feedback desiring custom domains for their cloud applications. Atlassian just recently 'accepted' the issue. Or, in other words, has made a kind of official statement about their intent to implement the feature. I feel everyone in the Ubiquiti community can stand to benefit from something like this.
Having a relative new notebook with Intel Core i5 processor (passmark average CPU mark of 2131), running Firefox 48.0.1 on a 25/2.6 Mbps ADSL connection in The Netherlands results in web page loading times on http://community.ubnt.com of :
fastest: 4 seconds
average: 8 seconds
slowest: 13 seconds
Epecially when editing a page, load times are over 10 seconds (with 238+ requests to fetch). These utterly slow response time make me less appreciate ubnt.com products.
Please trade in lithium.com for something much more responsive/rapid (time is money).
When the ubnt.com access points would perform as slow as this community, Ubiquiti wouldn't sell many units.
I find the horizontal lines being used for quoting to be extremely difficult to follow -- especially if there are several layers of quotes being done.
Then, there is the horizontal line for the signature. I find it very hard to distinguish what is what in a post. Something along the lines of the vBulletin system where the quote was contained in a box would be very helpful.
Please either remove the rich text editor, or enable the in-line browser spell checker in it.
Right now I have to press the "SpellCheck" button to get my post spell checked -- yet again, too many clicks for something that should be simple.
The ideas section is grate but idea tracking needs improved
And why are pages 4 and 5 missing from the Airmax idea section?
If someone clicks on the upper portion above "Home" (see upper red arrow) it goes to www.ubnt.com. I believe it should go to community.ubnt.com instead. If you click in the same lateral plane area for "Forums" or "Stories" it goes to the correct website. The lower portion of the "Home" button works as intended (I believe as intended).
Often people don't want to post their config publicly on the forum so I ask them to PM it to me. When trying to cut-n-paste several hundred lines of config it's a mess and the formatting gets wonky. It would be nice if they could just attach a file to the PM.
My list of reasons is longer than Elizabeth Barrett Browning's list of "Let Me count the Ways I Love You". (For those of you from Rio Linda or Dade County, I'm Referring to Sonnet Number 43 from "Sonnets from the Portuguese", 1853)
#1 - Inconsistent navigation across the forum pages.
The old forum had a tool bar with the most used links. Now I have to go back to main page to select "read new posts" or "mark as read".
Solved - Nevermind, I see it now as a forum option.
#2 - Text editor defaults to HTML mode and line spacing is lost.
I think this might be a User Settings option, but by golly..from the Main Page I have no clue where to start looking for User Settings.
Just get ride of the HTML editor, the old forum was usable.
#3 - HIDE THE FRIGGIN' EMAIL of the users.
This is a requirement. Not an option.
#4 - On the Main Page, get ride of the space wasting grey bar on left that is filled with useless and non-rpductive information. Do we really need Top Kudoed Authors, Top Kudoed Posts, Top Tags, Users Online? All that can be in a tool bar along the top.
#5 - Bring back the "Unread Posts" option which was REALLY A LIST OF TOPICS containing unread posts.
Now I have to wade through pages of literally every new post.
#6 - Show how many pages of unread topics.
In the old forum there was usually one page, sometimes two, and if I haven't been online all day perhaps three the next morning.
As it is now, I have no clue how much time I'll be wasting muching through the posts.
#7 - Fix the preview.
A few mihnutes ago, my preview showed how my post would look, suddenly it's an HTML format.
Ohhhh...Now it says at bottom of the editor,
"Your post has been changed because invalid HTML was found in the message body. The invalid HTML has been removed. Please review the message and submit the message when you are satisfied."
How about ..ohh...like get rid of the **bleep** HTML editor instead.
Well...I'm going to stop now because I have no frigging clue how the format of my post will get borked up.
The subscription list is static. That is, the list is displayed with the oldest subscription first and the newest at the bottom - regardless of when each thread was actually updated!!!! This is going to become unusable after I get 20 or 30 subscriptions in there.
