Project screenshots - more easy to access / preview

To do a quickscan if a Project on OpenTF is interesting I always go through the screenshots before I start downloading a release.

Unfortunately this screenshots require a lot of navigation back and forth.

Easier navigation between different screenshots would help me ...

Activeness indicator

: July2010
: project, indicator, july2010
 It would be useful to have some sort of "activeness" indicator(s) for a project.  For example, is the project still being developed and/or supported? Are there future releases planned? I'm thinking of the situation where you see a project that hasn't been touched for say 2 years.  It would be ...

Add a "follow" function

: july2010
 It would be nice to have a "follow" function that would allow me to subscribe to a project and receive notifications of updates, releases, discussions and so on. This could help to increase activity, and perhaps more importantly, community, around a project.

There are a lot of projects, which you can use, but not every one is ready to be deployed. Some are frameworks, some are just not ready (yet).

: July2010
: july2010
OpenNTF should provide on request two databases hosted on an OpenNTF development server.
In one database contributors can do the actual development, share code and try the app over HTTP.
A second database (wiki or discussion) can be used to manage internal project information, e.g. specs.

Improve the search functionView Linked Idea

: Infrastructure

It's hard to find a project with the current search method. Currently you can search only with keywords and select some areas. You need to be able to search by Project. this would include the description and title. I don't need the forums, comments, etc.

Possible to change your username

: July2010
: username
My current username is not my real name, since the correct one is connected to an old email address which I cannot access any longer.
It would be nice that my email is unique identifier, and that I would be able to change my name whenever I want to.

I suggest that a section of OpenNTF be set aside for XPages themes. Similar to the CSS Zen Garden ({ Link } each contribution would modify a base form and/or view and provide screenshots, .css files and any images.

The base form/view would have common elements, ...

OpenNTF should allow for more collaborative work on open source projects on OpenNTF.Org. There should be code control and version management including check-in/check-out, branch and merge, audit trail of code changes and rollback, etc. for design elements.

There are some theoretic technical alternatives for which existing ...

IdeaJam For ProjectsView Linked Idea

: Infrastructure

When rebuilding the project UI I would like to suggest that each project be given it's own IdeaJam instance integrated into the new UI.

The IdeaJam instance could replace the bug and feature requests of the current project infrastructure by having idea spaces for these areas.

For feature ...
