    With the new and exciting changes in the works for Finheaven I thought it would be interesting to see what the fans would like to see here. So this is an unofficial thread to let the great Finheaven staff know the kinds of things we would like to see here on the best Dolphin fan site there is. I personally am looking forward to the return of the front page. It was a quick navigation tool to the entire site. So think of some things you would like to see here and post them. I'm sure if it can be done, the staff will make every effort to accommodate it. Be creative. After all their motto is "It's all about football and it's all about the fans" and we're the fans so let them know what we want. This will help insure Finheaven remains the best fan site out there.

    I am excited to see the front page come back with the list of recent updated thread topics but also # of replies to each post.
    I'd enjoy former Miami Dolphin interviews from guys who played in the 70's, 80's, and 90's.

    Unfortunatley copywrite laws prevent us from posting clips. The NFL is tough about that.

    But I am liking where you guys are at on some of this!

    I want the front page to come back, complete with articles and breaking news segments.

    Some Dolphin related shopping links would be good also.

    Ozzy rules!!

    How about a chance to win free tickets to see the Dolphins live with airfair as part of the prize.

    It could be for the 1st home game and last home game.Not sure how "you all in the know" would work that out,but that'd super funkyy, lol

    Hey fin-atic,could that be some kind of tax wright off, or we could do a raffle, or something.It would be cool if that could happen.

    This was brought up to me by WVdolphan and I thought is was an excellent idea. Instead of members of the VIP bragging about how wonderful VIP is and trying to recruit everyone who is not how about you have a free trial membership and let everyone see for themselves. Maybe a certain amount of posts or 1 day or something. I never really joined before because I thought the members were quite condescending. I had considered it and something rubbed me the wrong way and I changed my mind. Since the change here I am now seriously considering joining but would love to check it out first.

    Can we re-start the Virtual Bookie section. I am a degenerate gambler and I miss betting on sports in here.

    MATT! Thanks for the compliment! We are stepping it up again this year... Adding some misters, creating a "cool room"... Gets hot out there!

    The banner is stored safely at my house, just waiting to the season to break it out! Hasn't been out since 2006 Jets Christmas game! Let me know if you need it!

    Hoping to make this season awesome... All are welcome!

    I would like to see the front page back again.

    Another cool feature would be some sort of breaking news alert. Something sent out to your email address on file, or a text message. This would be for those of us that can't be on or get on finheaven (when it gets crazy).

    Lastly, links to dolphin clothing/memorbilia deals etc... would be cool as well since most of us on here probably continuosly are looking for more phins gear.

    Thanks and good luck

    Less heavy handed censorship. I've seen MOD's and ADMIN's delete signatures, threads, posts, articles, etc. on the simple fact that they didn't like them. In fact I've had a MOD delete portions of my signature on the fact that they didn't like the statement of humor. It did NOT violate any portion of the TOS. Yet they used their personal judgment of dislike to decide what was allowed or not. That my friends is dictatorship and censorship per some common definitions.
    If this is a community board, then MOD's and ADMIN's should not be allowed to use their "taste" of like or dislike as a measure. Only the TOS should apply.

    Also, seeing AJ come back would be a blessing in disguise. He's just so dang cute, makes me want to squeeze his cheeks.

    And also, I'd like to see EVERYONE on FinHeaven regain their sense of humor. Sheesh....its a message forum and its the internet. None of it can you hold on to. Its all in our imaginations. :D Just like the voices talking to me.....something about albino midgets with honey and marshmellows...or something like that.

    I totally agree...what happened to it?

    I dont see anything new either...I mean, when it came back it was the same forum it always was. the front page was almost the best part of this site. if I didnt have time to read all the threads on a certain day I would know if there was anything big going on by just taking a second and checking the front page. then I could discuss it by clicking the link without having to sift through other threads, etc.

    the breaking news and all was awesome. did you guys lose the staff or something that were controlling that page?

    I agree with this too. While its important to keep foul language and assaults out of these forums. I have had personal experience with getting infractions for saying someone was "Narrow minded" ...another time that if this particular person thought Zach would choose the Patriots over the Cowboys/Saints then hes "ignorant" - these are general statements and hypotheticals that could apply to anyone who believes in the same thing. I've seen far worse on these forums on a weekly basis and it upsets me when I receive infractions on a site i have been a part of for 5 years. Cant we voice our opinion as long as its not derogatory, racist, insulting? Saying someone is ignorant to a subject, IMO is not a violation to TOS, or "NARROW MINDED" especially

    The justification I received was that all MOD's volunteer their time and shouldnt have to deal with these kind of statements. I say...if they are part of the problem which this guy was, instigating it, and acting like their on some kind of high horse, the kind of statement I made shouldnt be a problem.

    I suggest the TOS be re-written as one of the MOD's told me it would be. Maybe that would save them all a lot of time. I would abide by it, I just want to see it address more than simple generalizations.

    The whole point of VIP is to have access to more in depth, knowledgeable posts.

    I dont get it? Nobody would be a member then.

    whatever...i've said my 2 pieces.

    it seems all anyone is interested in discussing here is girls on trampolines...:(

    I'll say it right now - I miss the old finheaven. apparently it had a lot to do with AJ, I didnt know he was so busy and not around to run things anymore.

    Guys...AJ is back! He rejoined us this past Friday and has been working with me to bring back the things listed here. He was first on the list when I decided what I wanted this to be in the future.

    So look for him!

    This is a football board. Keep it a football board!

    We are here for a reason.

    Plenty of sites to add friends and be social. Keep that where it belongs.

    Honestly I just want football stuff.

    A big front page with a lot of content packaged within.

    First, thanks Fang for posting my suggestion of sneak peaking the VIP forum. I think its a valid point that if VIP is all the members make it out to be, then let non VIPs check out a few threads at no cost. If they enjoy they will pay. Its really that simple. If something is all its cracked up to be(especially the way some of the members pumped up the VIP on the main board) then a small sample will be enough to open the wallets. Do it the same way you can view threads on the main board without logging in or signing up.

    I agree with Icestorm as well. This place needs to be a little more open minded when it comes to humor within posts. Also I think alot of the problem of hostility around here will solve itself with a certain semi group of a larger group of members who have left for brown pastiers. This place needs to loosen up a little, but also keep its integrity at the same time. Also nothing wrong with a hot debate so long as everyone understands that we are all on the same side when it comes down to it. Scrums in training camp can be a good thing in some cases :lol: I think that problem may have solved itself as well with some of the departures.

    Fang also brings up an excellent point about this being a football board. I wouldnt mind seeing things like the lounge dissapear. Seems to me like a place where cliques can develope and take away from the fact that what brings us here in the first place is we are all phins brotherhood.

    Lastly, I wouldnt mind seeing some more appearel and things available based on points awarded for frequent posts and things. Some prizes, tickets, events etc... I remember finding out about this place in Canton during the Marino weekend and asking somewhere where they got that shirt that I wanted so badly.

    Agree 1,000 % on the VIP sneak peek. I'm a bit of a minimalist myself, and when I spend money I want to be sure it's going to bring me value. I hate to be blunt but that's just the way it is. If I could take a peek at it, either a couple of threads or a weekend trial offer then I would be able to make an informed decision.
