      • rethink the design (a little bit)

        I love love love this site, and glad I'm getting on it to use it some more. Of course, an iphone app will make me be on this site every day!

        I do think that three things about the UI are bothering me.

        - Things feel too dark. Clearly its a good motif for a "bar" atmosphere, but there are places where I feel like there could be better contrast.

        - Also, I'm not feeling the curvilinear nature of the boxes of content. Maybe a smaller radius would work, but this feels less like drinking fine beer and more like…

          We’ll think about this. From a visual standpoint we’re pretty happy with the design, but do plan on refining it. I’m curious as to the specifics where you’re finding contract problems.

          Also, as far as form handling. We plan on refining and improving all of that over time. We still need to design and write even the most basic error messages, and that’s all on the list.

        • more complete or more generic vessel list w/reference fotos.

          The vessel list has some specific kinds of glasses used for beers, but not others. Either add them, or reduce list to more generics, e.g. glass/stone cup, plastic cup, bottle. If list is enlarged, would be nice to have a link on the site somewhere which displayed photos of the different kinds of glasses with their names for reference. I know there's a bunch of different glasses for different beers, but don't know the names of them all.

          • add some way of knowing if you're timed out or not

            I've tried using certain features of the site only to find out that didn't work because my login had imed out while I was using the site. Maybe you should add a stattus: logged in / Timed out feature or automatically kick someone to the login screen after they'ved timed out and attempt to use site features.

            • allow users to solicit beer recommendations from site users

              I'd love to have a way where I could put out a request from site users for suggestions of beers to sample / try for a given area. This way, if you're going on vacation somewhere you can request a recommended beer list for that area to try while on your vacation

              • thumb up and down reviews

                This (could) put the best reviews up top, but there could be tabbed versions of reviews (sort by date, thumbed up, thumbed-down, etc.)

                Could be optioned as follows:
                Amazon style: "This review helped me / This review doesn't help"
                Forum style: "This review is funny / This review sucks"

                  • List the city and state of beer in "Beer detail"

                    This way you don't have to visit the beer's brewery page if you want to quickly find out where a beer is brewed.

                      • Some of the text displays weird in Safari

                        I think you guys are using sIFR for the fonts, but I'm getting some strangeness in some of the buttons with wrapping and padding issues. It looks like it might be a sIFR issue, but I thought you might want to know.

                        Places I'm seeing it:
                        - Main navigation
                        - "What do you think?" button on featured beer

                          See what beers you have in common. On a review page, put friends' reviews first in the queue so you don't have to scroll down searching to see if anyone you know reviewed it.

                            • Fix beer log checkbox problem

                              On the Beer Log page, there is a pane on the right with several controls that look like standard checkboxes (in FF3 Mac). However, changing the state of these controls reloads the page. A user familiar with the normal use of checkboxes in forms (such as myself, lol) expects to be able to uncheck several boxes in succession. This action only changes the state of the first box checked as the page has started its reload by the time you get to the other boxes. So frustrating!

                                  When you first sign up and click on friends/following etc, it only tells you that you have no friends and aren't following anyone.

                                  It would be nice to have information here on how to find and add friends, especially for noobs.

                                  It just made me sad that I had no friends... and no quick way of adding them.

                                      It would be great if I didn't have to upload my avatar after joining. You could make it super easy by implementing gravitars. If a user doesn't have a gravitar, then let them upload an avatar to you site.

                                      • Implement got/want functionality to facilitate trades.

                                        Beeradvocate has a great implementation of this.

                                        • When adding beers, make it easier to scan the variety field.

                                          I get slowed down by the variety field every time I add a beer. I tried adding a beer that was a strong porter (aka Imperial Porter). I spent a good two or three minutes trying to figure out if that was a style that's already there.

                                          Stouts are also a good example of ones that just don't conform to your menu. There's so many types of stouts. (Cream, Milk, Sweet, Dry, Export, Imperial, Russian Imperial, etc.).

                                          I'd love to just type "stout" and see what options there are (just like when I'm entering in the brewery field).

                                          As it…
