Is there anything you would like to see on the forum, or maybe changed?

Thabk You Sir!
I too have to learn the format, I want it to be as easy to navigate as possible.

For those that have issues with small font, if you have Mozilla, merely your hold cntrl key and hit += key and that will make it easier to view the forum.

I hit it twice. :-[   :o

I already like the simplicity of this forum.   It isn't a major transition by any means.

One cool thing we can do with this forum, which is old news for most forums, but cutting edge technology from where we came from, is embedding video.

If you believe big government is the solution then you are a liberal. If you believe big government is the problem then you are a conservative.

That's my fault, I told Bert to find us some boobs, and now he's off trying to find libs to join the forum...
Ya would think after all this time, Bert being in charge of boobs and all, he'd have figured that one out. ;D

One other thing I like, is the feature to have it notify you if someone posts on a particular thread.
Say you make a post you feel is important and don't want to miss the reply, it will email you at home and alert you when someone responds.

I also like being able to jump right to the end of a thread...

I am looking around in the admin area...  I am going to get the video embedding set up...

Excellent!
I was skimming, but didn't see it, glad you are taking it on.
There is nothing worse than having to open another window just to watch a vid.

Hullo there. Congrats on starting up, undaunted.

One potential drawback to auto-reply is when a thread's on fire and you can wind up looking only at that, not at the entire forum. Different strokes, I suppose. I'm not sure about having to enter a verification code before sending a PM. I can understand the why, from the admin's standpoint of blocking unwanted spammers. It just inconveniences the innocent folks while it keeps the spammers out.

You could do with a HELP page. If you have one, I haven't seen it in my first glance-through. Newbies gonna need the Rosetta, y'all. Neat stuff like embedding avatars and so forth. Geeky stuff, even.

I know what you mean, but I was thinking about threads that got pushed off the top.
As to the code thing, I think it is a one time thing, you should never have to do it again.

You can find help next to the Home box at the top, or use this short cut.
