I have a number of ideas I've discussed with Jfrazier and a few other folks - namely around point tracking for the thwack forum.
I see two areas we could benefit from changes on:
1: personal point tracking.
Being able to filter by criteria would be nice, and being able to find out WHO assigned you the points for things that aren't just posting/commenting would also be nice. Also enabling SW employees to go back and update the description for points they award us would be useful. When I say criteria it could be "thing you've done" (UX participants for example) or it could be a keyword search (UX).
2: thwack store.
I know in the past the thwack store couldn't even really tell us what we bought (or what we tried to buy but never ended up buying and no longer shows up), but it'd be great if somewhere we can see a "your purchases". Think like how amazon does order history, it doesn't need to be more creative than that but it'd be nice to have an audit log of the info. For example, I tried to look at the backpack and now the backpack is no longer listed for me but I never actually decided to purchase it. It also sounds like it's super hard for Thwack forum admins to track down where your purchases went, even if mrs.alterego or other SW employees on thwack try to help.
