I know! I was distracted and thought I had clicked through to the link on the page. I reported this immediately, hours ago now, both by direct email and by reporting it as an abuse, pleading with them to remove it, but obviously they don't respond very quickly. I have one big suggestion, Fodor's! Allow users to remove their own posts with a click, automatically. TripAdvisor does!

A fodor's app for Android phones would be nice.

I'm too old I don't even know what an "app" is so I guess I'm out.

I can tell you the two things I'd like for the forums here--the ability to send a private message to another member. TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet's Thorn Tree forums both have that function. And, I'd like a feature where I get an e-mail notification when someone has responded; they both have that feature too.

If you make a Fodor's app, try to remember that some people are bilingual and would like to have access to the English language version even if their first language is something else. The English language version usually has more participants, so you can get more information.

Tripadvisor's App is very unfriendly to bi-lingual people. It forces you to use the language of your phone's (or tablet's) operating system.

Emily, I know Fodor's posted the request, and I would hope my privacy would be respected. What happened is that I accidentally responded on this forum, with all my contact details, including email address and phone number. (I thought I had clicked through to the link given.) Then it took me two hours to get Fodor's to take down my accidental and revealing post. That's something TA does right! You can click "remove my post" and it vanishes instantly. Since you don't allow editing, you should at least allow someone to cancel their own accidental or mistaken post.

I'd like an edit button, and the ability to post pics directly into a thread, rather than just a link. And I like the idea touted above of being able to send private messages to other Fodorites.

PS I have posted the above because your form/link thingy asks for your state, and being UK based I don't have one. I really hope you don't deliberately mean to exclude non US based opinions.

@RM67 Of course, people from abroad can definitely participate. I've just fixed the form. If you are interested, please leave your e-mail address and we'll be in touch shortly. Thanks!

@palmettoprincess If you'd like to share your thoughts and ideas, please submit your e-mail address so that we can quickly reach out to you. Thanks!

Apps for Windows phones would be good too. Can't be that hard to do.

Who is JensU??

She is a new poster, and if she were connected to Fodors, wouldn't she have a M [moderator] or E [editor] or T [technician] next to her name, like Emily??

I'd like to know by email when someone replies to a thread I've created or commented on.

I think if you'd like to promote use of certain apps, offer a replica of the old Fodors pin after blank number of uses. Even an offer to purchase said pin after a few uses might encourage people to try it. There is a demand for the Fodors pin.

Actually, julies, Lonely Planet removed the PM function during their last overhaul.
