Please feel free to let me know of any issues that you're having, or ideas that you have, or to let me know when I make a change that sucks or is cool.

You're doing a great job. The only concern I have is that one certain person might come over and start some real crap.
Virtually everything GOP critics have told us would follow from the policies put in place has not come to pass. You would think that this would occasion a few mea culpas, some rethinking, an admission of poor prognostication. But, alas, it continues.

Is there a way to make the default number of posts displayed per page more than 25?

Don't know how much control you have over the mobile version but is there a nav button(s) or links that can be added to the bottom of the thread you are reading that would allow you to go back to the index or to the next thread without having to scroll all the way back to the top on the thread you are in?

At the moment I have no control over it. Unless I went in and tried to re-write the code. Not happening. There is an update coming that I believe will make some if not all of the changes that you requested, but as of now there's no date for it's release. It's definitely a basic mobile version, but I wanted to give it a shot. If the new release doesn't add the few changes that are really needed I'll start looking around on a better version.

Either that or I'll ask dylvez to use his mad skillz and tweak the current mobile version. He's a busy man though.

So I added some topic icons and smilies. Obviously there are an endless supply of them out there so if you have any specific ones you would like to see, feel free to ask and I'll see what I can do.

What was the other one you used to post after every Braves win? Sometimes we would alternate it with Hammer.

Or you can click the scroll wheel if your mouse has one.

About the only thing I miss from the old place, aside from the hot babes, is the ability to hover over a topic and get a preview of the message. Other than that, this new place is pretty sweet.

ok, I've got the topic preview working on the prosilver and subsilver2 styles. The others might take a while, as I have to tackle a good bit of code changes.

Now if we can just get a Dan Snyder bored and pin a Natural Gas Rate thread that hasn't been updated in 2 years up in this place, I think we'd have it nailed!

Nice Work.

I don't know anything about setting up forums like this so if I'm asking for something really difficult my apologies in advance. Is there any way to create one giant forum that puts each thread from each board into it but maybe labels which board you can find it? I know the majority like different subjects being in their own board but I've always like one big board with the subjects mixed together.

Added a couple more styles. It looks like the max avatar size should be 150 wide for several of these new styles. So anyone that uses an avatar, if you could kindly edit it to reflect these new parameters it would be appreciated by some. The height doesn't really matter.

FWIW - While I get the "keep the politics out of my board sentiment", I kind of liked the one forum free-for-all that was SC better than multiple forums.

I find the view active topics thing works ok for that - but why split out whatever from TV/movies?

I think the multiple forums we have here are just about perfect. Some people really get into movies and music, while others might want to avoid those altogether. The "whatever" forum is a great place for politics, religion, etc.

Unless we are going to actually pay Fulmsie, I don't see how this is practical. He would have to review every post. I haven't checked. Is there an "Ignore" button?

Ha! He should be paying me to post here :wookie:

The problem with Ignore is that you can still see quoted posts from the user that you're trying to ignore.

Is there a way to report a post to a moderator? I'm with shoepolish in the This Story Is Nuts thread...we ought not let the same shit happen here that happened on SC.com that will drive people away b/c they don't want to get hammered with personal attacks every time they post something on the board.
