commented on Member renewals
Update. As it turns out, we seem unable to end-around the Membership system at NB and still use the NB billing process. As expected, I guess. It may be that we have to do our own Membership pages through Paypal. Really frustrating, this lack of functionality.

commented on Site-Wide Limit on Slug Length
Mind you, there are also some places where I could use a longer slug, like on email blasts. Very frustrating to only have what, 12 characters? Makes for some incomprehensible slugs. So, can we fix both of these problems?

commented on How can I get my Facebook photo on my nb profile page?
Um. That’s it? This is how it is. Why not admit that someone coded this a long time ago, and it is not worth your time or effort to fix it so we, or (gasp!) the user can select which photo to use on the profile? Maybe an intern could do it? A Summer of Code thing? Someone’s kid brother? Anyone?

commented on Sub-nation contact details and email footers
Huh. I would have expected that to be a selling feature of sub-nations… without that sort of basic functionality, what is the point of using a sub-nation?

commented on Big upgrade to the NationBuilder Member addon
Would appreciate major changes like this be announced before they are rolled out, so we can adjust our operations. That said, some of the changes are very welcome.

commented on Changing the order of my hosts, tickets in an event page
We have tickets for an event, and they were entered not in the order in which we want them displayed. We could delete them all and enter them again in the right order, or use this hack, I guess.

Really think the “hack” should be replaced by the handy drag and drop you have on other pages for re-ordering things. Would it be so hard?

commented on Allow multiple Memberships (self and/or gifts) to be associated to a single donation
Doing the same right now in our nation: have a 2 for 1 offer, making the gifter pay for both in one transaction, and added two custom fields for name and contact for the person being gifted, then we follow up manually with that person to get their deets. Very cumbersome.

commented on Option to Remove people from district if they're not included in Voter Import
We are about to do our first voter import, and wow, yes, this would be pretty important to us.
