No ideas just yet; but I just wanted to say that the forum looks snazzy.

Good job you guys!

I can name two ideas right off the bat:

1) Either increase the posts per page considerably or make this optional for each user. I feel most comfortable with 50, but I even choose 100 when available.

 

2) Maybe add an option to enable/disable swear filtering? I saw this in one phpBB forum and it works pretty well I would say. I prefer no word filtering but some people may disagree, plus the guest traffic probably has a good deal of youngsters.

Can the hyperlink color be changed so it's not the same as the text ?.

@Bjossi i kinda agree on that, i really don't care about the presence of swearing, but i don't wanna see 5 YO kids bitching around like teenagers. thats MY job

 

a good idea is to put a "RANTS" thread, only accessible by members, in which we can swear and fool around with more freedom of speech, and discuss some things off-topic, like why my neighbor dumped a perfectly useful bottle filled with beer.

I'd like to make a slight correction to my post.

 

Can the hyperlink visited color be changed so it's not the same as the text ?.

 

Maybe make it a dark grey or something.

I don't know if it's me or whatever; but I'm unable to center my signature. I'm using RockMelt.

Working on adding smilies, Fixing link color. Also I believe we're disabling post count to discourage spammers

Makes sense, I was only curious as some people seem to have a post count and others do not, so it seemed a bit strange.

Post counts doesn't do good anyways. "Member since" should do just fine, and perhaps ranks?

The time zone at the top is wrong, it thinks I am in Australia, but I am in the USA. Is this a site problem? Or is there some settings in need to change?

User Control Panel > Board Preferences > My timezone

Change it to whatever yours is (:

Agree x googleplex.

 

 

Also, would be nice to multi-quote. (if you need an example of it, I can provide one)

Just as a somewhat half-serious request, maybe some silly personalization on the things Like "You can't give yourself reputation!". also so happy the forum is up!

Reputation has its own dedicated thread if you're interested, the issue with the ability to be able to rep yourself has already been mentioned.
