    Patriot Network Improvements

    There is no doubt, we have built a feature rich online experience, here at the Patriot Network.

    That doesn't mean the online experience can't be improved. Let us know which features are missing that you would love to see.

    Walter, I would also like to see the ability to tie my PatriotNet account to my Parler.com account.  Parler is a similar platform to Twitter, but it does not censor political speech.  Thanks!  This is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, we need to be able to have Screen Names.  Then, we need a Verification system where people can authenticate their account on the server by sending a pic of their ID.

    Scott, the ability to connect with other accounts depend on their ability to create the API required to do so. Example: the prototype network I've built 6 years ago had multiple "Timelines." You could simply "switch" to Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, where you could check on the feeds and reply without ever leaving the Network. As expected, Facebook and LinkedIn changed their policies and no longer allow these type of connection. This being said, the dependencies to other platforms rules and what they allow always supersede your abilities to connect.

    Scott, we have the ability to implement a multitude of security protocols for sign up. In fact, once we are out of Beta some of them might be executed. While I see your (valid) concern, the idea to verify with ID's would be tremendously costly. Currently, we are only dealing with a few sign ups per day, but if we start to catch the momentum we are expecting, we are looking at possible tens of thousands signups per day. Each ID would have to be verified manually by a staff member. With potentially millions of new members, we would have to hire an entire crew just for that task. As you surely understand, cost more often drive ideas than the other way around.

    Hello, Walter, thanks for asking!  I'd like to be able to just copy and paste pictures instead of having to download them first and then pull them from the file in order to post.  Also, I would like to totally turn off emails for any postings/notifications of likes and comments.  I've tried and tried but am unsuccessful no matter what I do.  Perhaps this is a glitch in the system? 

    Other than that, it is a very easy site to utilize - which is certainly more than I can say about some other sites that I've experimented with.

    Thank you for the opportunity for provide some suggestions for improvement.  Have a great day!

    Hi Katherine,

    Question 1: I'd like to be able to just copy and paste pictures instead of having to download them first and then pull them from the file in order to post.

    Answer: I can't recall for sure, but I don't think Copy and Paste would work in Facebook either. You can click on the "Adding Photo" Icon and download a photo from your Device. That seems to be pretty much the standard. We will continue developing features and see if that might be become possible later on though.

    Question 2: Also, I would like to totally turn off emails for any postings/notifications of likes and comments.

    Answer: The first step is to turn off the desired notifications in the "General" Email section by unchecking the boxes. Our you can turn off the notifications entirely. by checking the box "Disable all site emails" (see image}

    Please put a donate button in the upper-right hand corner so that members who want to donate can.  Make it easy.  We want this site to continue.

    Also, you need to contact every conservative news blogger: Larry Elder, Victor Hansen, etc. and ask for ad space on their sites for this social media site.

    Post a link to the free, conservative, non-discriminating, video site:  Rumble.com!  Let's get good freedom loving users off Youtube and onto Rumble!  

    I have asked Sean Hannity to link his site here; same with Larry Elder; same with Dan Bongino.

    Where are the adds to other conservatives sites - seanhannity.com; larryelder.com, etc. ?  Then, those sites can ad us.

    Hi Scott,

    There are some difficulties with implementing API's to add a RUMBLE link for video uploads within the video section. However, the good news is RUMBLE videos can easily be posted by clicking "Add Link" instead. Just copy and paste the RUMBLE video link and you're good to go.

    No, I don't mean an api.  Just a link that you will link that user to other sites.

    I often post long posts with lots of pictures as I am a researcher. I can figure out how to edit my post but if I want to edit my pictures or add more or remove some there seems to be no button for this. Also what is the limit on words in a post and what is the limit of the number pictures one can add to a post? That would be very good to know as I create content. I know that FB has a limit of 80 pictures per post. I know this because I have hit that limit a few times. Looking forward to your reply!!

    I know that I haven't been here long , but I have an idea. The UX on the Browse Members page could be enhanced by recommending that everyone should update their profile with a picture, any type of picture is better than no picture. There are several pages that are mostly without a picture, maybe you could use the network logo as the default. I think it would be more appealing and comfortable, the pages are laid out well but they could use some warming up for an enhanced user experience. 

         I spend 16 hours a day online and visit the top domains on the planet, I analyze aesthetic design and comfort metrics that stimulate emotion and engagement. A warm, comfortable and visually pleasing presentation of content is very important. Thank you for your time.

    I have a difficult time finding those comments that posted to my initial post. In the email that I receive the link provided WILL not take me to that particular comment. So why attach it to the email. Their should be a easy obvious link to look at these comments by viewers and I can't find one.. irritating to say the least.

    I would like to be able when posting something from another forum the picture to show up instead of just the raw link
