  1. Fix your whole site.

    Login/register page goes to 404. Buying a game leads to a nothing page. Today's Deal goes nowhere. Total bunk.

    • Stop saying 'pay what you want' if you don't mean it

      You send an email that says 'pay what you want' for a game, but when I get to the site and try to buy it, I have to pay a minimum price. That's fraudulent.

      • Fix Youtube Embeds on Store Pages

        Just look at the store pages with videos- none of them are currently working, and since videos are the main thing folks will look at to decide whether they'll buy a game or not, fixing this feature would be fantastic

        • "too many key requests"? I cannot fetch MY games? or 'thanks for the money f*ck off'

          Please don't limit customers in this way. Humble Bundle doesn't

          • Some blog posts don't have links

            Some of the posts on blog.indiegamestand.com (possibly just the free game posts) Have pictures and descriptions, but no link to the game on indiegamestand.com.

              • "Un-redeemed keys" filter

                Other sites like GOG, Humble Bundle Inc., and Groupees make it easy to filter your listing for un-redeemed keys. In Groupees' case, they even let you filter by whether the un-redeemed key is Steam, Desura, Itch.io, or Other.

                This would really help when I'm going back through my collection to look for newly-added keys or keys I can gift because I already own a copy. (Both "IGS has a spare purchase on file for you to gift" and "My IGS Steam key is un-redeemed because I redeemed it from a Groupees/Humble/etc. bundle instead".)

                • Implement more robust update notifications

                  I'm not sure when, but I've stopped receiving update notifications despite the checkbox still being checked (and I don't think they ever covered "an X key is now available").

                  (I'm wondering if it may have something to do with the e-mails and RSS feed for the daily deals both breaking)

                  You need something more reliable, like the Groupees updates dropdown list or blue dot GOG uses to say "this library entry has been updated", where the user has to explicitly indicate that they've seen the notification.

                  As-is, I have no idea how many of my DVD+R backups of installers (which…

                  • In library icons

                    It would be useful if the pages had little icons next to the games you already had in your library; or a filter that would filter out those leaving just the ones you don't have yet.

                    • Own elsewhere/Not interested flagging and filtering

                      Flagging certain games as already owned or not interested and filtering those results out is more convenient to customers and gives products with more sell potential more face time.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                                  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.

                                    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.

                                      • 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.

                                          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.
