Created: 4 years and 3 months ago
I would like to see new sub forum implemented under https://duck.co for !bangs suggestions & discussion.

PS I am aware of https://duckduckgo.com/bang.html

The trouble right now is that the main /bang.html page is fairly automated--that system would have to be moved around and changed a bit. Definitely a good idea though, and we are considering it.

How exactly is it automatized? I used to submit many bangs which never went live...

eg: https://search.wikileaks.org/search?q=

There is a manual review step. That part takes a while (as in a month or more) at this point, so that could be where your bangs are stuck.

Hi @TV, if you choose to (optinally) fill out the e-mail field of the "Submit new !bang"-page, you should receive an e-mail when the !bang goes live.

It also gives the DDG staff the possibility of replying to potential questions you (optionally) fill in the "Comments"-text area.

In case you don't feel like giving them your real e-mail-address, you can always just set up a "temporary/throw-away"-e-mail-address.

This has been favorably discussed between the Devs and the Forum Community Leaders. One issue is having a new post present a new Bang form, similar to what you see at https://duckduckgo.com/newbang .

We are in agreement that this would help to unify requests for new functionality and would bring !bangs into the community area.

It's a good idea, has met with initial support, no priority or timeline have been assigned, as far as I know.

Thanks.

That's exactly the point of my thread. Thanks for reply!
