Loop: Scooploop Community Support

  • Ideas for Scooploop

    Good morning everyone

    We hope you are all doing well.

    We would like to pick your brains a little over a topic we are currently looking into. Along with the recent Loop changes we are steadily building more and more tools for both users and moderators; enabling Scooploop to become increasingly customisable and individual for each user. We would love to hear your thoughts on which tools you believe Scooploop needs.
    We have had a few suggestions from our user base already. With some users suggesting moderators should have the ability to control users behaviours in their groups more extensively. This could possibly mean moderators having the ability to block certain users from interacting with each other for a certain amount of time, to help disperse ongoing arguments.
    What are your thoughts on this? Do changes need to be made and if so which changes do you feel would benefit yourself and Scooploop the most? It would be great to hear any ideas outside of the blocking debate also.

    We look forward to hearing all your thoughts & ideas!
    Have a great day
