I know I'm a newbie, but I think you all did a great job on your site. It has a variety of topics; I'm still exploring links. By the way since changing the page number colors could be a potential problem, maybe you can bold only the page number that the user is actually on.

I changed the page number color to a lighter purple today, seems to help. Unless you're color blind of course. :beer:

[quote="Ian Joseph"]Got a board suggestion for you Toby and Jack Sparrow.. At the bottom where it shows the page numbers of the thread, you should have the page number you're on be highlighted in gold, not black.. You honestly cant see the difference between the pruple and black, so you dont know what page you're actually on.. at least until you get to the last one becuz there is no "next."[/quote] My addition to this conversation - - - I have also been frustrated by this feature, and found that if you run the mouse over the numbers, the one that doesn't react to the mouse is the one you're on. But I also discovered that in the lower LEFT hand corner, it gives you the page number by saying "page 3 of 4" for example. Toby - if you changed the colors today I'm not seeing it. Maybe I need to refresh the page...

Toby, you guys did a great job! I know it must have taken a lot of work for it, who does most of the site work? You and Sammy? Can't say enough about the work you all did, moderators, etc. I'm cool with the page #s, it's different, but since it tells you on the other side what page ur on, it's nice. My minor suggestion.... if you're trying to keep up with new posts, you guys have got that down with the manilla color. But, you literally have to go through every thread and check the most recent to get the "parent" link to white out. Know what I'm saying? Maybe that's the way people prefer it, but I kinda like being able to hit the most recent post, have it clear out, and not show up as anything new until someone posts after that one.

Couple of things E. We're limited by the software version as to which posts show where and the colors. If you minipulate the color to change one effect, it changes other things in the template. There are hundreds of modifications that have already been built and we have some of them here. The frustrating thing to me is that some of the mods don't always work with our version. As for the work, Toby is driving most of the time. I'm more about research and user end issues. We took turns blowing the site away early on and now we pretty much test it all before rolling it in. Wouldn't want this to be like the "other" site, ya know? ;)

I changed the page number colors to a lighter purple, it should show up for everybody but sounds like it's not. E, on the bottom of every forum is a link that says "mark all topics read", I'm guessing this is something you would be interested in?

Toby - On a related note, is there a way to flag a particular topic so it doesn't show up on the "View Topics since your last visit" view? There are a bunch of topics I don't care a whole lot about, and they clog the view of the ones I do.

I'm not sure but check in your Profile settings to see if the sorting settings might help you with this. Let me know either way.

Hey, I'm guessing there's an easy answer to this, but I couldn't find it... is there a way to permanently check your tag line? I checked around in the profile, but it didn't jump out at me.

Now maybe Toby will build a 'Dude" template with just your threads :lol: or maybe we can "uninvite" you to the ones you don't read and they'll be hidden to you. There is a handling fee for these things! :cool:

This is the one thing I actually miss about the Strib board - Subscribing to topics so you didn't have to wade through stuff you don't care about. Everything else about the board more than makes up for that, so I will quit my bitchin'.

I won't argue if you do, but don't make any extraordinary efforts on my account.

If you're interested in adding a live chatroom here is a link that you can look into http://www.everywherechat.com/addjavachat.php I've created a room there before and it worked well. Not sure how it's operating now. :shrug:

Something dumb, but along the rating of posters-wise, I think it'd be cool to have whoever is the leader in posts, or maybe even the top 3, have a special rating. Something like "Current Vince Lombardi Trophy Holder".... ya know, something like that, but cooler. I don't know exactly what it should be, but I like the idea. And no, I don't have any illusions it'd be me.

Cool! That makes it official - this board is in every way better than the Strib.
