SUGGESTION BOX

October 17, 2008

In further attempts to make mikeshinoda.com the best it can be, I’d like to take your suggestions. Think about what my team can change, subtract, or add to this site, and let me know.

I’ve thought about adding a search function, a “favorite posts” list (my favorite selections), a “top 5” posts list (your favorites), a music page, and hopefully RSS/ssharing capabilities. Let me know what you think of these ideas, and if there’s anything else I can do to the site to make it better.

Please head over to the lp.com thread and talk to me about what would make mikeshinoda.com the best for you. (And while you’re there, please enjoy the new ROAD TO REVOLUTION website look)

    I like the fan chat’s idea!
    I can’t wait for RTR!!😀

    First of all wow to Zahra for posting so many comments!Second-no matter what you put in here it will still be a great place to visit everyday:)I think the music page idea is really good and the favorite posts too…well i really love all your ideas.I also like the idea i saw below about a chat…that’d be cool:D

  6. lynndarwinharris on October 18, 2008 at 11:00 am

    Anything you want to add is fine by me. I love the fact that it is always a random entry by you for us to comment on, not the same thing all the time. I will visit and comment no matter what. Thanks for asking us and I will be a fan for life!

    Hey Mike! Want to help you… BUT:
    “You are not logged in or you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:….”
    I dont get it, I was logged in…maybe you could help ME and tell me what was my fault.( And I am not the only one with this problem)
    Want to say: I Like all of your ideas. Maybe a chat is interesting for you? Or a category for fans where they could show there own arts or something like that.^^
    Take care, btw.: is Chaz getting better now?

    Maybe make a bit larger letters. I’m wearing glasses, and sometimes it’s hard to read, especially on evenings when I’m tired.

  9. cuz on October 18, 2008 at 7:43 am

    I have no idea what kind of suggestion i could give. I love this site for being so simple but it’d be happy for anything you’ll do here. Take care🙂

  10. zahra on October 18, 2008 at 7:14 am

    i tryed to reply but i cant the page sad …..You are not logged in or you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:….bla bla bla….i could never use the messeg bord becuz it never let me….WHAT SHOULD I DO?

  11. zahra on October 18, 2008 at 7:01 am

    Mike pleas!… I hope you read these …pleas tell me what you think. I’m telling you this stuff because 1.you inspire me 2.you succeeded to show your band to the world and I mean every where you are still making fans every day 3.your a great guy 4.your smart ////sorry that I pasted this on your blog I just didn’t have any other way ////

  12. zahra on October 18, 2008 at 7:01 am

    ….anyways If I study and study….what?…will I be heard?…I will study though, I need to!….but I don’t think that s the real big secret. My dad has a bio mechanic PHD, and now he teaches in Sharif University the best university s in Iran. he has been on TV a lot and people still don’t know him! He has won a million awards, my dads the smartest guy I’ve ever seen!…

  13. zahra on October 18, 2008 at 7:01 am

    BUT HOW CAN I MAKE MY IDEA HEARD!?? I don’t know how?! Should I start a band?…..lol…..should I explode? !!I’ve lived in Ohio Columbus for 9 years and I have seen a lot of places on this earth, well… I live in Iran now, a place where not many people think clearly! its sad to know that a lot of people don’t even know what’s going on around them .and I really wish to wake them up from this dream and to make them start looking at the truth …

  14. zahra on October 18, 2008 at 7:01 am

    I don’t want to lose myself and become a disgrace. I just want to make a difference worth wild. Have u seen the movie ”v for vendetta”?
    ”Remember the idea not the man because the man can fail he can be caught or forgotten. But 400 years later an Idea can still change the world!”
    I think you’ve seen ”Batman the black knight” the bat wanted Dent’s idea to live on so people would never forget him and don’t lose hope. Didn’t he?!
    I respect these lines with all my hart and I don’t just look at them as just a movie line I look at them as a line to live throw.

  15. zahra on October 18, 2008 at 7:01 am

    And I also think that not all people can control this power and that’s what makes them just like every one else !I am now reading Barack Obama’s books ”dreams from my father” & ”audacity of hope” Barack Obama had dreams, he had ideas! But once he got the power I fear he as many others choose the power over the dreams he use to hold dear and now I think he is no different than the rest of THEM, though I still have hope!. I don’t know what I’m going to be doing in 10 years from know but I want to make plans for them .

  16. zahra on October 18, 2008 at 7:00 am

    I have many democracies that may have lot of supporters! I have an idea! I feel a magic in me! But I just don’t know how to be heard!!?For example: every one knows Bill Gates. Why? Because he made a difference! Every one knows John Kennedy .why? Because he made a difference! Every one knows Che Guevara. Why? Because he made a difference! All most every one knows Mike .why? You made a difference! All these people hade the magic to show the idea.But I guess not necessarily good differences make you some one to be remembered. Well mike, I think people mostly explode there selves because they love to be heard they love the fame! The power!

  17. zahra on October 18, 2008 at 7:00 am

    Well, I know I’m not ordinary and even if I was I wouldn’t want to be! I thought to my self that in this time the only people that are famous enough for every one to know them are mostly actors or singers! but they didn’t influence me tell I meet your band at first I didn’t like LP but after some time, I fell in love with LP and I could not stop the influence u guys gave me. I felt the magic! That made u guys so different than all though s freaks. You inspired me in many ways, like you inspired me to learn the guitar and u inspired me to make a project about stopping global warming at school and win number one project of the year, and I will never forget that!

  18. zahra on October 18, 2008 at 6:59 am

    I know it’s been weeks since you posted a blog about people blowing up, getting famous, and stuff…and u said there’s no need to explode, and that made me wander about something totally different! …I up woke up 2weeks ago and started thinking about my self and how I want to be heard! How I want people to not look at me just like every one else but what makes me qualified to even think I’m different?

  19. zahra on October 18, 2008 at 6:58 am

    Hey, mike I know I shouldn’t put comments on your blog like this . I wish I had an other way (I’m really sorry)and I’ll try to understand why you wont answer me ,and don’t worry this will be my last time pasting this ! i hope u dont hate me for doing this,,,,x)

  20. Gabry94LinkinParkfan23 on October 18, 2008 at 6:29 am

    hey mike! i posted my ideas on lpn.. byeee ^^

  21. LenneAB on October 18, 2008 at 5:55 am

    Yaay for the “favorite posts” list, “top 5” posts list and music page.
    How about a fan art section as well?
    And RSS feed would definetly be really good.
    (Not that I don’t pay a visit here everyday anyway ^^)

  22. 2T_LP on October 18, 2008 at 5:53 am

    yea…u r right SALIH…i couldnt w8 8for RTR and l found out that my brother found a site where we can download it illigal!!! that sox!! mybe u should releaze it earlier before everybody could download it and get it!!

  23. Salih on October 18, 2008 at 5:19 am

    That have nothing to do with the thema but…..
    Its about the singles
    as example Leave out all the rest: single release in germany was 26. 09(of course i bought it like everything from you) but the video premiere was months ago. i mean wouldnt it be better when you release it earlier. Because most of the people cant wait so long and then they download it illegal or sth like that.
    i only want to see LP in the first place in the charts . As my favorite band i only want the best for you😀
    i cant wait for ROAD TO REVOLUTION
    have a nice weekend

    sorry for my english. Im from germany

  24. Evabones on October 18, 2008 at 5:02 am

    Mike, You must see a new band that is become very famous through Youtube. They have made yours cover of Shadow of the day (piano acoustic). In my opinion it’s beautiful. This is the Link http://it.youtube.com/watch?v=WgG_4Akt9vM
    The Band is Boyce Avenue. Do you like it ?
    Kiss Marty

  25. Zip on October 18, 2008 at 4:39 am

    Mike!
    Im sorry for offtopic, but i don’t know where can I contact you personally, so I decided to put this here…just for you to know X____X

    this is russian advertisment of the chromed disks, you know, those metal round thingies for the car wheels O__O
    Well …
    I’d kick them

  26. Noe_Kenji on October 18, 2008 at 4:06 am

    hey!
    what about a chat room?
    and what about a page where fans could post their art(picts, may be videos too, ect) ? i think that this would be very very funny!!

    have a nice week end!

    PS: whats RSS?

  27. Henna on October 18, 2008 at 3:49 am

    great ideas mike! i especially like the favourite posts and music page. another improvement would b if we know how many characters r left in the comment box and if u kept us a bit more updated about how ur lifes goin. or better yet add a page about u, we know all about the professional u, but not so much YOU if u get wat i mean. anyway i think it’s great that ur makin changes =). . henna xx

  28. axrinekey on October 18, 2008 at 3:08 am

    Lol!
    The RSS/sharing capabilities and music page sound great!😀

    Oooh!
    Making changes!
    Sound fun. : )
    Will be waiting for the change!

    Oh! Maybe you can make a list of your blogs so we don’t have to click next blog -> all the time:/

  29. amy87 on October 18, 2008 at 3:05 am

    TORRESLIV, thanks for this TLTGYA link. HHH video was awesome but this is just the most beautiful video ever.

  30. NeneLP88 on October 18, 2008 at 2:40 am

    The fact of you asking if we want something different/better on YOUR blog is great.

    ‘Cause we both (you+us) use it and we should enjoy our staying here at mikeshinoda.com too =P

    There’s plenty of suggestions on that thread, but i think you should focus on: search button, archive, pager (once i literally turned mad looking for an old post =S). But i read other very interesting ones.

    Have fur reading all the suggestions! =D

  31. msgirl on October 18, 2008 at 1:38 am

    thanx for the suggestion..:) i liked the all suggestion of urs…..:) but mike!1.what about characters(i wanna know how many characters left while i am typing) 2.and i wish there would be ur biography(personal life-how many dogs u have,their names,ur hobbies,when u met with Anna,when u will have baby)- haha…:) kiddin….:) it would be awesome if u wrote…:) 3.what about chat room?🙂 4.can u please translate the sentence u wrote up there in japanese?i don’t know japanese.but i wanna know..:)5.why don’t u update new videos?? :)u had pro rev tour…so i hope u have great videos…:)

  32. Hawaii_LP_fan on October 17, 2008 at 11:52 pm

    I think it’s cool that you are asking for the fans’ suggestions to a website that is off the hook as it is!! There are a lot of GREAT ideas but I honestly feel whatever you decide to make changes on will be things you envision. It reflects who you are & I support it 100000000000%. Thanks for opening it up to us. Always remember, your fans got your back. =) p.s. Chatrooms can be fun only to the serious jabbers. Probably a headache to the moderators.

  33. stardust001 on October 17, 2008 at 11:43 pm

    I really like the idea of “Favorite Posts” and the music page. One of the things you could do something about is the login process. Why do we have log in again if we’re already signed in?😐

    I also like the search function thing. Would be really useful.

    Take care!

  34. spraypaintNinkpens on October 17, 2008 at 11:25 pm

    Make it easier to log in and post. Most of the time it’s a frustrating process.
    Also I would like to see a music page, maybe upload clips of you messing around with beats and or lyrics.
    I know warner probably won’t allow that though because they suck.

  35. ThunderStrike on October 17, 2008 at 11:19 pm

    Is there a way to improve the login process? A lot more people would respond to your blogs if logins are quicker.
    You could put up your biography somewhere here, an archive is absolutely necessary and maybe respond to your fans a bit more often =P And I want some FM stuff on the music player =D

  36. MS_Ineedyou on October 17, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    One more thing Mike ………….. Please respond back …. why do we have to be in th LPU to meet you guys ?😦 I can’t afford the LPU😦 Please respond if you can …..

    ————————Brooke

  37. ms_shock on October 17, 2008 at 9:08 pm

    Chat room would be good idea. And question-answer section. Also you can make different competitions here (for example best art, best rhymes, ect) – the price would be your answer xD I’ll think more and post in LPMB.

  38. MS_Ineedyou on October 17, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    Mike, I think your ideas are great. But one thing that would be cool that if there was a page you could click on like how you click on BLOG or ART. On that page you could show like Linkin Park/Fort Minor videos and new info. And another thing that would be FANTASTIC is that if we are already signed into the LPN that we don’t have to re-sign in into this accout. It would be WAYY faster …. and easier. Just some ideas…🙂 Bye Mikee ….

    ———————-Brooke

  39. Giffy on October 17, 2008 at 8:10 pm

    well, i kinda like ur idea bout “favorite posts” list, a “top 5” posts lists & a music page it would be nice but pls don’t make it such a hard loading page.. think about my poor internet connection, it makes me pissed sometimes really! & oh! u always keep ur fans happy ^^ good work dude!

  40. martinac on October 17, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    HEY! some gud ideas I suggest knowing how many characters Ive wrote n a message so I kno when 2 shut up & also help with personal pages like how to do/change things like my name I have 2 signature names my fault I kno but how to change that? Could we have an option of some photo albums 2 many on page make it slower 2 upload & also could d other guys write abit n there blogs ur brilliant & chester gd 2 where did d other guys go??..THANKS 2 THO. U R A LEGEND for being there for r ur fans MARTINACXXX

  41. Hybr1d_7h3ory on October 17, 2008 at 7:27 pm

    What about disabling HTML so people cant use the comments as a myspace page and send all these glittery “Soul Mate” things.

    Great ideas though

  42. Mikeshi_Linkfort on October 17, 2008 at 4:00 pm

    Good idea MIKE! Especially musical page! It will be very cool if you will make that that have conceived, then you blog will be even more interesting!

  43. nemi on October 17, 2008 at 3:25 pm

    wow =D
    many good ideas ^^ one thing i would like is to be able to comment on the photos and and the art🙂
    And I love your ideas! Exited to see the changes =D

  44. aplacetorest on October 17, 2008 at 3:04 pm

    I think a music page would be bad ass, maybe some unreleased beats, remixes, whatever you’re workin on, even if its a lil tease for the fans, we will appreciate anything you post. A search function was the first thing that popped in my mind, but i saw you already posted that haha, but thats another must on my list.

    good ideas man.

    -Stephen

  45. ninguem on October 17, 2008 at 3:03 pm

    mike, read this, you need put archive in this blog, will become much easier to find old posts
    these days i try to found one february post and i can’t found =/

  46. Jaclyn on October 17, 2008 at 2:39 pm

    Good idea! It’s time for changes! Road To Revolution art is great, i cant take my eyes from it❤ i heart the style

    **torresliv thanx for TLTGYA link! awesome!

  47. sweet_girl on October 17, 2008 at 2:16 pm

    Mike your so sweety!!
    No wonder why I love so much🙂

  48. torresliv on October 17, 2008 at 2:04 pm

    Absolutely awesome The Little Things Give You Away video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuHXwavOp4w# I think you should watch it, it could be official!

  49. keineAhnung on October 17, 2008 at 2:00 pm

    I’ve posted that already on the blog about the new rule: would be really great to have some feature showing you how many charakters you’ve got left while typing…seen that on some pages and it’s pretty helpful to keep within the charakter limit🙂

  50. ThaPoet on October 17, 2008 at 1:35 pm

    great idea Mike!!
    btw could you please re-consider or explain why Somewhere I Belong, Papercut, P.O.A, and Wake 2.0 has been left out on Road to Revolution.

    Thank You

    Veteran Fan m/

  51. rocksylvie on October 17, 2008 at 1:29 pm

    Hey, Mike! I haven’t any brilliant idea and I also love yours! I just wanted to thank you for your concern and wish you all the best! I’ll let you know when the ideas come! I just think that it will be good to enter directly to the comments page when I sign in. Thanks!

  52. dulcemdl on October 17, 2008 at 1:26 pm

    I THINK VERY WELL, A GOOD IDEA!IT IS GOOD, THERE ARE GOOD CHANGES
    ALWAYS PROGRESSING…PEOPLE ARE ALREADY BEARING GOOD IDEAS.
    ……….GOOD IDEA MIKE !!!!NOW I AM THINKING ABOUT MY OPINION……….🙂 KISSES

  53. lucky_cat on October 17, 2008 at 1:25 pm

    Ok. I think about it. I can say now I don´t like the “favourite posts” idea as well, but a search function is necessary. My first thought was like DURGs: “I like it just the way it is …” When I have more ideas I put it on the LPMB. Have a nice weekend!

  54. Angelic01 on October 17, 2008 at 1:23 pm

    oh I absolutely love these ideas!!!
    especially the search function… just today I was looking for a certain post cause I wanted to show it to a friend and it took like ages to find it… so I am totally for something like that ^grins^

  55. Ash75 on October 17, 2008 at 12:55 pm

    I love the idea of some music here. I think all of fans will agree with me😉

  56. euzuka on October 17, 2008 at 12:53 pm

    Hello Mister Mike Shinoda😀 My name is Goran Mandić, I’m coming from Croatia, Zagreb. We have many fans here in our country,so the whole Croatia will go nuts if you do a concert there😀

    very cool of you, thanks for letting us suggest! the thread on the MB is already filled up with thoughts and suggestions! by the way, here’s the thread I already created about the new great look for LP.COM few days ago: http://forums.linkinpark.com/showthread.php?t=10016

  58. sasummsumm on October 17, 2008 at 12:50 pm

    i must say i totally love what you’ve made out ofthe road to revolution theme ^^…
    the logo on the site really has a look and feeling of being somewhere on a road and a little bit revolution too
    thumbs up it so totally fits it’s amazing😀

    btw have you seen those guys?^^ think they do pretty well

  59. lp_fm_fan on October 17, 2008 at 12:49 pm

    Lol, yeah your blog already has RSS I actually subscribed to it but it didn’t give me the NEW news it gave me the old news, it was kinda slow, I dunno if it’s any better cuz I thought it’d be best just to visit your site everyday, lol.

    Btw, have you tried the McDonald’s Monopoly Game? I just got some food from there and I thought I’d try it out for the first time, I got Park Place! …I just need Boardwalk now.😄 I doubt I’m gonna get it but I kinda just wanna go to McDonald’s and get anything then give the food to my dogs and just keep the game pieces. =P

  60. Anstice on October 17, 2008 at 12:22 pm

    LOL. I love how you’ve called it a Suggestion BOX. It isn’t really a BOX. But I get the point nonetheless. =)

  61. Igor_Shinoda on October 17, 2008 at 12:10 pm

    Hello Mike,
    I believe that a good idea to add this search function on your site, then i would like to give you an idea of a place here in Brazil, which is the Rio de Janeiro, here, there are beautiful beaches and great hotels …, it is very good!!!

  62. Noda89 on October 17, 2008 at 12:09 pm

    I agree w/ SoniaLPrnway, I hate having to go to LPN just to sign in, and then have to come back here to comment. Lol, it’s weird.

  63. JNudda on October 17, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    Mike, your site already has an RSS feed. http://www.mikeshinoda.com/feeds/blog.xml

  64. durg on October 17, 2008 at 11:59 am

    holy schist, the new layouts amazing!😀 cant wait now
    hmm.. i think the sites great the way it is.. shrugs

  65. Shinizzle3 on October 17, 2008 at 11:43 am

    mike, i got a question … what’s actually with joes artwork? i don’t here anything about it…does he actually still draw? … i mean…nothing against ur art but..i liked joes too…:(

  66. Kalini on October 17, 2008 at 11:29 am

    It’s great, Mike! I need just a little time to think of my best suggestions and I’ll post them on the LP thread. Adding a music page is a good idea! Krassie K.

  67. Sonia_LPrnway_ on October 17, 2008 at 11:16 am

    i don’t find the “favourite post” and “top 5 posts” necessary as well. maybe you could look into the “sigh in” issue. we have to sigh in here even if we’re already logged in the LPN…

  68. miKer0cks on October 17, 2008 at 11:12 am

    wow!!! great idea!!! i posted some ideas in LPMB!!! hope u like them!!! btw…my name there is EvoOba😛 cant wait for the new mikeshinoda.com🙂

  69. Charlotte_Jay on October 17, 2008 at 11:07 am

    Well…a favorite posts list is a great idea Mike and I think a music page is necessary and you can create a section for fans to put their songs and artworks so you can say what you think of them.I’ll think of more ideas to tell you🙂
    I LOVE the new ROAD TO REVOLUTION background of LP.com it’s very very nice.

  70. liope on October 17, 2008 at 11:07 am

    i don’t think that the “favorite post” and “top 5 post” is necessary…maybe the “top 5 post” from the fans will help you, to understand what kind of post we prefer but my opinion is that since its your blog you will post what you like and not what we like so that it will be a famous blog…i like the rest though..🙂 good luck with it!! ^_^
