Revamp Community Members page

Revamp Community Members page

community administration

As thelittlevoice explained in their <a href="">LiveJournal suggestion</a> the members page is completely unpractical once you get a certain number of members. Let's think of ways to improve it.

Here are my suggestions for improving this page:

- Add at least one other column: joined date. I'm sure some admins would like other stats like latest post, latest comment, number of posts, number of comments.

- Make search work for names starting with, ending with, containing 'x', not just *exact* names. Make it possible to search for members having joined between two dates. Display the results instead of loading the whole page they're in.

- Let admins filter the page by capability: admins, moderates, has unmoderated posting access, has posting access, etc. and vice-versa and any combination of these.

- Let admins filter the page by account status: active, suspended, deleted. Maybe add the list of banned members too.

- Change the way pagination is displayed so that you don't get dozens or hundreds of page links when you have lots of members. Maybe something like 1 to 10 then you have to click on 10 or 'more' to get 10 to 20, and of course links to easily jump to the first page or the last one.

ETA: see Kyrielle's comment for an even better pagination system.

- Allow the pagination to be alphabetical instead of purely numerical. It would be awesome it this were adaptive so that you have a minimum and a maximum numbers of names on one page (it would group letters together or, on the opposite, break the list down to Aa or Aaa).

ETA2: Also see Poulpette's comment for the integration of invitations into this page.

Anything else?

I'd like something similar to but different from how Flickr does it - show N pages around the one you're on, plus 1-2 pages at the beginning and end.

So if you're on page 22 you might see (as linked items and better done than this):

1 2 ... 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 ... 208 209

(And if you see that, I am hiding. *grins* But, for the sake of example.)

Yes to all of this. Voted with change, to include either input boxes ffor sending invitations to new member at the bottom of each pages, of separate members list and those invitation input boxes (on the manage invitations page maybe?)

I hadn't even thought of those community options (most of mine are tiny). There are so many issues, seems like they need to be worked through with thoughts to how they interact and so on. Wireframes!

I've migrated this to Bugzilla (bug 2179), marked both needs-spec and needs-design. If you'd like to do a full spec in more detail for this, that'd be great; I like the suggestions made here, but someone going to code it would need more workable, concrete specs for the project.
