[listicon] Larger fonts for forum and topic links. I use a really big resolution, so things probably look smaller for me than most people; so let me know if it's too big.

[listicon] Profile info moved to the left of posts instead of the right; as it was on the other board. Of course again this is hopefully all temporary until they start adding themes to this version.

[listicon] More space between each thread title in the topics list.

You are awesome Gendo. I can almost forgive you for making me cry. Almost. [none]

Oh wise and wondrous Gendo, is there anyway to make the forum... actually remember me? Because I keep checking 'Remember me' and it keeps making me log in all the time.

Hmmm... all the time like every time you open up the website again? Or just every once in a while? I had that problem from time to time on the other board; I figured it was because my computer was clearing out the cookies for whatever reason. But I don't see anything weird; the thing I can set to make "remember me" expire is set to not expire.

Anyone else having this issue?

Every time I open the website again. Sometimes even when I refresh the page.

[listicon] Got rid of the animated thread icons for "hot" threads. I guess this was to draw attention to popular threads (lots of replies), but man that was just annoying. They look like regular thread icons now.

I know, the red color for "unread replies" in a thread still doesn't stand out much at all.

[listicon] Just for LSK... The Reply # is now shown next to each post title in a thread. And I'll have you know this isn't a feature that's built-in to this board system, I had to program it myself.

*Edit* Ok so it doesn't quite work right when it's not the first page of a thread. Shut up. [none]

Yeah, it looks like it resets on each new page. But I'm still very impressed and thankful that you added the function. Thanks, Gendo!

I have to log in every single time too. The other board I didn't have to log in. It had that option "stay logged in for ---- minutes or forever". Not a big deal if can't be fixed. I actually like this board a lot.

Hrm... and you're definitely using pittersplace.com, right? And checking "Remember me?" when you log in? Strange that a few different people would have this issue; but not on the last board. On the last board I would get logged out every once in a while, (maybe once a week or so), but haven't had any issue here yet (since I fixed all the stuff with the new domain and such).

Not sure where to put this, but a strong suggestion of mine would be to feature options for bolding, italicizing, underlining and hyperlinking in this "quick reply" part. Just those four. If you have to get more complicated than that, use the "full editor", but it would be awesome to have those quickly on hand. [smile]

That would be nice. Looks like the previous version had a mod that added it; so we'd have to wait until that mod is upgraded for the new version. Or I could possibly do it myself; but we'll see.

Word. Yeah not a biggie if it's super difficult to accomplish, just a thought.
