The biggest issue with the new software that would go a long way if resolved
The biggest issue, which i dont think anyone has mentioned, is that when you click on Recent Posts, it doesnt bring up all posts since your last logon. If we could get that functionality, i think it really goes a long way towards resolving all the BS (except for the geniuses that think this site should be a free service with no ads.)
Actually, IMHO, the biggest issue (which seems SO minor) is the width of the screen. I have no problem with the ads in the right column. But can't we place them at the top of the page, instead of cutting off 1/3 of the viewing screen? Get rid of those "new forum topics" things on the right column, and move the tags somewhere else. I am sure there is good (SEO) reasons for placing everything where it is, but you really need to be using the entire width of the screen. There is way too much scrolling and multiple pages.
The biggest issue isn't the details, it's the sum of all the parts. Everything with this place is worse. Width, look, smilies.
Scrap this software and get something else.
Place two rows of ads at the top and two rows at the bottom
Let us have All the middle
Add spell ck
tint the background
give the girls their emoticons
remove the CAPTCHA(at least for those with a minimum requirement for example join date or post count)
Funny . Everyone has a different "biggest issue"
Admin - thanks for the suggestion. It does help. I liked it better though, when i could just click on Active Topics and get a list of all threads with new posts.
But now that you point it out, this is ok. I retract my "biggest issue"
I think if we continue to patiently give suggestions, we can end up with a pretty nice forum here. Now if we can be diligent about keeping the clowns and spam off here, that would be a nice improvement.
Lots of "big issues" with this forum. The recent posts isn't much of a problem for me though because I hardly click on that button. I guess it's different for everybody.
