  1. be informed about limitations of your current security provider (Cloudflare)

    For your information, your recent change or decision to use Cloudflare with its latest SSL protocols breaks most of old browsers. Example is Opera 12: http://forums.opera.com/discussion/comment/15205022
    (note that 12 is the latest version of Opera browser, the most recent 15-29 branch is a Chrome fork)

    This is a common problem today for old browsers. Most of such users will refuse to use latest browsers like Chrome and Firefox due to increased resource usage. Instead, they are likely to stop using your website. I myself feel the same.

    The possible workarounds (if you ever consider this) are:
    - Stop using Cloudflare. …

    • Include developer guidelines for Youtube videos/monetization. Some of us would really love to promote these games of the devs allow it!

      Some developers don't want their alpha/beta builds posted for the world to see. Some want the publicity and feedback! I'd love to see a section on each game page that either details the dev's Youtube guidelines, or a link to their policy or a link to contact them regarding videos/monetization.

      • Purchase a Elite Membership with other Payment options

        I want to purchase a Annual Subscription, but the only payment options are via Credit Card or Bitcoin, which I don't have. Please make it possible to purchase via other options, like Paypal. I would even pay the full amount at once (so no monthly payments) if that means I would be able to pay with Paypal.
        Thanks for any help.

        • change "if a dog was also a clown which name would it have" into something more obvious

          When one logs in into the forum and fails to write the password, one of the addicional input boxes has a question. One of those is not obvious. "if a dog was also a clown which name would it have?"

          Canj backwards and indie games is far more easy :P

            • BBCode and Viewer Count

              Could we get some kind of formatting like BBCode for games' descriptions ? At least a basic link support.

              Also, having a view count in the dev's panel for the game's page would be nice. I mean, it's a basic feature and it's kind of necessary to get a view vs download count for devs. It's is one of the most important metric you can ask for.

              Cheers,
              SK.

                    • Show Lifetime Charity Contributions (Per User)

                      I was just doing my taxes and adding my charitable contributions. I noticed that i have no way of easily telling how much I have contributed to charity through bundle sites. It would be cool if there was a ticker that showed and updated how much one, as a buyer, has given to charity through the site.

                      • Have a quick link to ask a question to a developer in the game deal of the day

                        Sometimes when there is no thread about the game deal, or if the dev is not lurking there, it would be nice to have a quick way to ask the developer.

                        For example: "Hi! In Greenlight it says Linux, but in IGS is Windows only. Will we have Linux too? Or is it dependant of a sucessfull greelight process?"

                        It happened more than once ;)

                        • Fix the youtube embed in forum

                          The youtube embed plugin uses http regardless if the provided link is in http or https, which creates the issue where youtube embeds won't show on forum until you "allow unsafe plugins" in your browser. All you have to do is change the embed link in the plugin from http to https.

                          • More strongly encourage developers to include Desura keys

                            Although this was posted previously it was closed out as "completed". I would like to revisit this again not just for the current game but in general. Most other bundle/indie game deal promotion sites are better about getting the developers to give Desura keys. It seems that maybe you guys leave it up to them but I really wish you were better at pushing for it.

                            For myself and a number others I speak with online not having the Desura keys really is a dealbreaker and it doesn't cost the developer anything to get them.

                            • Developer must confirm before game is made public on the store.

                              The current process of waiting for store approval is very frustrating as it goes live on the store immediately without the developer having any idea when. This makes simultaneous launches very frustrating as I have to just sit and wait for this email to arrive and when it does it's a mad dash to update a bunch of other stuff so people don't get broken links.

                              There really needs to be either a final approval step that involves the developer or instead of the game being added immediately to the store there is a delay.

                              • Offer national payment methods for other countries

                                Maybe it is not viable right now (not enough foreign costumers), but as the platform grows it would be good to offer national payment methods for some countries or world regions. I can only buy games outside Steam with International Credit Cards, since I do not have one (it has a monthly tax), my store options are very limited.

                                Seeing all those indie games and not being able to buy them always sadden me.

                                • Include icons for games that offer local or online multiplayer (and maybe controller support?) visible on both the purchase page and wallet.

                                  Just a quick visual reference, since it can be hard to keep track of all of them once you start to build up a collection, especially with Bonus games.

                                  • Include more sort options (and version info) on the "Game Wallet" page.

                                    It would be especially nice if users could sort their collection by alpha/beta/finished status. (If I play through a game completely in Beta I'm unlikely to play it again in its final form, so I'd rather be able to see which games have reached a 'final'/public release).

                                    Likewise, it's great that new-version-released emails get sent now (assuming all devs are using those?), but it would also be great if the version number (or at least upload date) would show up on the Wallet page, to see at a glance what's been updated.

                                    • Offer Torrents as a download option (As per Humble Bundle)

                                      You could reduce your bandwidth and potentially increase download speed, especially with current games, were you to seed the install files and share them via torrents instead of direct downloads.

                                      Humble bundle and presumably other indie outfits do this.

                                      • Make games or bonuses timed exclusives

                                        King Arthur's Gold and Sentinel, both recently IGS deals, have now appeared in other bundles only a week later, including the same bonuses offered with IGS, which is quite disappointing for IGS buyers. I think that in certain cases, IGS should seek timed exclusivity (perhaps 1 month) in order to improve value for customers and keep up IGS's reputation.

                                        • Sticky the current game's forum topic on the homepage

                                          There have been several games on IGS that are difficult to understand until someone else writes up a review or explains why the game is awesome. At the same time, the official thread for the game is getting very little attention. I think both of these problems might be solved at the same time by putting a forum widget or a link to the game's forum topic as part of the game description.
