We created such topic to show you on which topic we are currently working. There are a lot of ideas in our minds, but the main problem is limited human resources.

We want to share some of our soonest plans with you. Over time we will reveal more details.

Actually we are looking for a business investor who will determine the directions of website development, QAs, copywriters and developers. Feel free to contact us.

You can write about your ideas here.

Soonest plans:

  1. enabling voting for MVP for unlogged users
  2. match chat
  3. adding sponsors of the clubs
  4. open board for voting for next feature on Volleybox
  5. voting for the dream team of each tournament and each tournament's round
  6. fixing error occurring while adding wallpaper for profiles in PWA
  7. fixing logged errors in Javascript
  8. fixing incorrect redirect after clicking on push notification

I haven't quite tracked this down, but often I find myself on the "Men Volleybox" side of the site. When I just clicked on a "notification" that brought me here, it happened. Not a big deal in itself but then all my left side icons (matches, comments, transfers) are about men. I guess it's because you started the thread while in the Men's world, and now that I think about it, it's expected behavior. So ... never mind. I'll just pay more attention.

@PierreFoucault @Volleybox I'm a bit late for that comment, but for 2 weeks now I've got the same video on the “Home” section, because there is not a lot of personalized stuff for me. I really don't like that feature, because it narrows down the contents one could see, but now sees only stuff that he knows about already…My opinion.

I not a huge fan of this new “Show more" thing in matches. It seems to be a good idea with the player's list, the MVP, the pronostics and even the arena's informations.
HOWEVER, I love to see where matched are being played and I used a lot the arena part of the site. Would it be possible to show the arena directly on the match again ? Maybe on the left of the “Show more” thing. @Volleybox 

Huge waste of time otherwise.

sitenoise 303 7

Oh my gosh, yes! Please show the Arena without having to dig under rocks for it. 

Wait. I see that there is a hide-and-seek alternative. Still a bummer, imo, as the target is small and useless for keyboard wizards.

I'd also like a “close” button rather than having to use the browser back button but that's just me.

Do the players get points for being the MVP?

Hey, if we're going to go there with this show more thing, might be cool to have:

hits / pts / % / blocks / aces 

for each player. I'd only fill out any newsworthy boxes but it would be cool

sitenoise 303 7

hold on … this MVP thing is volleybox user vote? Not who actually won it? Someone just voted a player who wasn't even rostered for this match: https://women.volleybox.net/okayama-seagulls-toyota-auto-body-queenseis-c40499 👎🏼

[Edit] Bad vote has been removed and all the MVP buttons as well, except for the one for the player who did get a bouquet of flowers. Not sure why it's labeled a “vote”?

@Volleybox  can you do something to make the additions to Matches be in the same place? Like center-align “Reports” in the middle right under the score, and "Movies" aligned left, and this “MVP” gamed up nonsense aligned right?

I scan the lists to make sure there are Reports for all the matches and it's frustrating when “Reports” is dancing all over the place, as in:

Reports 
Movies → Reports
Movies → MVP → Reports
MVP →  Reports

Would it be possible to show the arena directly on the match again ?

@PierreFoucault So far, I haven't found any other website that displays the arena in the match list. I've added arena icon on the list, arena is displayed after hovering it.

Do the players get points for being the MVP?

No

hits / pts / % / blocks / aces 

for each player. I'd only fill out any newsworthy boxes but it would be cool

So probably you suggest duplicating a data contained in the match reports. I'm not sure about sense of doing it.

@Volleybox Yes I've seen, that's better. Would it be possible to make it clickable ? Or by any mean being able to reach the arena's page from the match "summary" (not the new match page) ?

Please. I second this request!

@Volleybox said: “you suggest duplicating a data contained in the match reports”. 
Well, the score is duplicated from the match report. I wouldn't want to see empty boxes everywhere, but given that match reports are often in a language many people don't speak, or a format that folks aren't used to, I thought it would be nice if there was a way to ‘highlight’ a particularly good performance. If everyone hits 10/30 who cares? But if a match has someone hit 29/40 I thought it would be nice to highlight that. 

I have no idea how you'd implement it without “duplicating a data” of boxes. I wouldn't want that. Perhaps just a small text field next to each player for “notes”? Could be “29/40 @72%” or “got carried off in a stretcher Set 2”. Well … maybe not. People could get verbosely carried away

As for: “I haven't found any other website that displays the arena in the match list” ….

And they're clickable!

Thanks for aligning the match additions. I wish it still said “Report” but vague icons are better than dancing around.

@Volleybox A cosmetic thing: after adding a match report, the spot where the report icon is at shows “[object Object] 1 ”. A refresh of the page replaces that with the report icon. 

I never know if these things are just for me and my extension laden browser or not

@Volleybox One of the weirdest bugs I've found here : arena is not clickable for Kazan Volleyball Center. 😂

I tried other random club from other countries and they all work. What the hell is that haha ? I'll come back here if I unintentionally find other arenas in this specific case.

EDIT : It doesn't work also on women's Champions League match. The arena doesn't even show up.

@PierreFoucault  I just tried a bunch of random ones and none of them work. But then moments later they seem to be working. I tried that Kazan one and it works. Maybe @Volleybox is doing something. Now it's random.

I notice that, for example, the final match here https://women.volleybox.net/women-japan-vleague-division-1-2020-21-o15253/matches doesn't work, but if I refresh the page, the “time” (as 22:30 or something) disappears from the date and then the popup works and the arena is clickable

That's good because people are voting for mvp before a match is even played.

@PierreFoucault the problem with the “refresh page” workaround is the page always refreshes to the Final set of matches, so for example, if I want to see the 2nd Round here https://women.volleybox.net/women-japan-vleague-division-2-2020-21-o17129 I can't get to it via refresh.
I think @Volleybox is doing something. He never sleeps

@sitenoise Haha I love how random it is ! To click on the arena you have to get lucky, it is like a Russian roulette (but with less risks obviously).

For every example that you said it didn't work, it work for me.

@PierreFoucault  Even when they work it's annoying to have to individually hit a little target. I used to sweep by to see which matches were going to delayed because of the one before it. Now I go to another site
  @Volleybox  why would it be so bad to have them fade in on a mouseover like the “added by” does?

@sitenoise No, I mean make the image bigger. If you take the picture on the link above, the logo is small with a useless text under it. I want to zoom on the picture and then center the logo so that it can appear big enough and without the text.
I used to do that a lot, but since a few weeks/months we can't do that so there are some ugly logos somewhere on the website.
