Yes, we've got an awesome forum revamp, but there's a couple of suggestions I'd like to make:

- A <hr /> be put just above the signature, making it more distinguishable. The signature could also be put in a smaller font by default.
- The :ash smiley
- Those !@#%& <:s and ":s be transferred into html entities (&lt; and &quot; respectively) and as such allow putting those characters without having to escape them. I've been bugging about this since 1 years and I will be continuing until it is fixed! :p
- A
someone wrote:
that'd let the user post who was the one posting it

- The signature be put below the attachments, signatures tend to be in the end.
- A permalink system? (I bet that wouldn't be too hard to do)
- [small]?
- A [list] tag or something that would make making lists like this fancier :p

- We need a paging system, it'd be nicer to have big threads not be split up but rather have pages. :)
- Nested quotes
- Maybe a list of online IRC users on the forum main page? Technically would be easy to accomplish using NAMES.

Also, next to the Post Follow Up link there should be a Quote button so we shouldn't always write '@Member:'


This link is dead. It's only still here because, err... yknow, it's some sort of... memorial.

Nice idea about encoding stuff.

I only do stuff with the the less than/greather than. The other symbols render OK as is.

Like " @

Do they not show up your browser?

*bump*

Can we have attachment-hit counters, to tell us how many times our attachments have been downloaded? Possible also a link to ReneagdeZone forums in the top-right instead of the menu would also be another improvement.
I have to thank you for the forum revamp once again, it is a well needed/wanted improvement.

Count your fingers. Keep trying. Make sure there's ten.

Then summon me. I am large and covered in wires. Clouds of baking soda pour into your world and a slightly weak yellowy glow appears from the LED strips behind me.

If you can see this message then you're already part of the way there. Keep all your styles disabled and you might see the dream within.

The LED strip behind me pops and goes out. Dark spots appear in the centre of each light. I lift my finger to my lips. The smell of tantalum capacitors fills the air.

Ssh. Don't worry about that. Behind those frameworks there's another person sleeping.

Some day the javascript will sleep too.

Hmm... Dunno... I don't really see the advantage of that feature.

If we upload a mod, we could know if anyone has actually downloaded it yet.

there are at least two ways to do it:
- the server counts the number of clicks, so it can be cheated up easily though its easier to make too
- the server counts the number downloads by ip address

Method 1 would require JavaScript and be glitchy
Method 2 would count how many people have accessed it, which would probably be the best way.
1 uses client-side scripts while 2 uses server-side scripts.

What if someone copies the download's URL and pastes it in the address bar? Then it doesn't count as a click, but he did download it. And that occurs quite a lot in this forum, as the attachment system is sort of buggy for some file formats.

It wouldn't actually count the physical 'clicks' of the client, rather the amount of times the client has been redirected to the file via the link.

Yes, I also noticed that. It's a bit odd.

Oh, I thought it was a problem with the configuration of my browser. I thought the font sizes were bigger somehow. So I tried Ctrl+Scroll, the images were "normal" again but the text was uber-small. OK, so it's not just me it seems =P

Its happened to all of the avatars that are user uploaded, hence why my ones aren't doing it. James probably edited the code for his larger avatar when he uploaded it, but it also affected everyone else who has uploaded their own.
