    Thanks for your feedback. Please see answers below.

     

    A. Adding maximum letters restriction per post.

    Can you please explain in more detail why this would be a good idea?

     

    B. Changing font to Segoe UI

    Can you please explain in more detail why Segoe UI would be a better font? Unfortunately that font is not a common web font, but we could find similar web fonts if the switch is well motivated.

     

    C Adding avatar of people per post.

    This is something that we have planned and will hopefully be included in our next round of testing before launch.

     

    D Allowing uploading of image and adding youtube video

    You should be allowed to upload images and embed youtube videos to both posts and classifieds ads. I'll double check that this really works and also improve the instructions to make it more clear.

    However, for comments we'd like to keep things as simple as possible, so we don't allow images of embedded content for comments.

    A. Adding maximum letters restriction per post.

     If you can  see the thread http://beta.qatarliving.com/advice-help/posts/login-help-home-page you will see my comment goes on very very long, anyone can misuse that ..besides I don't think any1 would need to write such big comment.


     

    B. Changing font to Segoe UI

    I believe it is more clear to read than other fonts, I could be wrong but after  the launch of windows 8 (Metro look ) , every website is going for  clear look like yahoo
    Microsoft suggested Segoe UI for there Metro Apps ..all Segoe UI fonts list (https://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/family.aspx?FID=331)
     

    C Adding avatar of people per post.

    You can also add some built-in Avatar like yahoo answers, as most people don't want to use der own pic it will easy for them to choose from.
     

    D Allowing uploading of image and adding youtube video

    You may not add it but it would be nice if u can  allow images and youtube in comment, even facebook allows images in reply. Size should be fixed and not defined by user


    One more suggestion : this comment box is very small to reply such big paragraph

    I've quickly looked into some possibilities for web fonts. And for legal and cost reasons we must stick to a free/open licensed web font. Google has a great directory of available web fonts here: https://www.google.com/fonts/

    Do you find any web fonts from Google's directory that you think would work as well as Segoe UI? I can't promise we'll go with your choice, but your feedback would be much appreciated! :-)

    how about this one http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/open-sans

  • QL Team

    It seems to have a good licence, but unfortunately it's only available as a TTF, which doesn't work very well for the web. Preferably it should be in the WOFF format (Web Open Font Format).
