I'm thinking we do the alpha launch in about 2 weeks. So far I've got 4 high quality active posters on board to bring their posts here when we open.
I'll generate some buzz, we'll have a few hundred people here for like 1 day. That's our chance to hook people and get our first wave over and really start growing things. I'll probably start posting content soon to flesh out some of the subreddits and give them a history and a direction.
Showing individual upvote and downvote counts on every post and comment (through RESAE)
Ability to hit ctrl+enter to submit a comment or post.
Change the text and links at the bottom of the page, add in a patreon, bitcoin, litecoin and dogecoin donation links.
Change the /r/ system to /x/ and call them a subx (short perhaps for SubExtremes) instead of a 'Subreddit'. Alternatively we could go for /ae/ and call them a subae. Or even just simply /s/ for sub. I'm not sure which is best yet, if you have a feeling one way or the other let me know.
Implement sidebar chat
Ability to summon live chat window in comments
Those are the main goals for now, as I see them.
Oh I thought of one more.
7. Build a timeout method in to the IRC chat so that guests don't just infinitely build up forever in the member list. I don't want it to be like hotel California where you can join but never leave, haha
