This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Ah. OK. That won't be changing. Sorry.

Where am I dragging it from? I  do not see the picture

Is your avatar not changed?

Cool.  How would I get the avatar from you?

You should be able to just drag the image from your browser to your desktop.

If you click a person's name from a post they made, you get a menu that lets you search for all their posts, and from the results, you can click a link in any post to take you to that point in the respective thread.

By contrast if you click the Members link, then select a member, click the Statistics tab, and then the find all posts link there, you get a list that doesn't have the link to take you to the specific post.

This is weird and I'd like to see it fixed, thanks.

I don't follow you.

If you're talking about this icon , then you could just click this icon

Done. Not full color, but it is tinted with color.

Dude - you stole that picture :)
It doesn't look that good in grayscale. Would you like me to give it a bit of color like the ones on the back of the book cover?

Hopefully the new start will clean all that up.

That was my intention -- to get rid of all the clumsy add-ons and stick with fully integral components. Otherwise, I could have saved myself a lot of work.

Some of those extra div tags are likely for options that are turned off. Yes, the tags should also be hidden, but I don't have the time to look into it right now. I'm aware of the other issues, but they are minor, so they are also on the backburner. Thanks.

I think we could safely lose the titles under the names at left, the postcount and join dates. Postcounts and join dates are just cliquey things, "oh u r such a n00b, me been here 4evah".

Perhaps down the road.

I think that'll be good. With each post being in its own little box all neatly laid-out almost like a character sheet, that looks good but takes up a lot of screen. The actual text of each post is at most half the vertical space the post takes up.

True, but one advantage this has is that you can collapse specific posts and not have to see them again by clicking on the arrow at top-left of a post.

I completely agree, Engine. I did the same with phpbb3 when I upgraded to it on my site. The first thing to go was the huge javascript that let you change font sizes on the fly (I can do that with my browser).

I see for some reason we have a limit of 40 replies per page, can this be increased to 100? Also is there a reason we have to wait 30 seconds between searches? I get between posts to keep people from flooding the board, but between searches?

I increased the post limit, but I won't touch the search controls until things have settled down.

It almost works.

On that note, here's an item for the wishlist: alternative board skins. Unless that's a huge amount of work?

I think it's the best I can do without disrupting users on larger monitors.

There won't be alternate skins as a rule, but I will work on getting a minimal skin for low-bandwidth and small screens.

The site window no longer fits within the computer screen.

Yes, I have 800 x 600. Is that not good?

Try it now. I've played with the numbers a bit. I also removed the smilies from the new post area (you can still choose smilies from the pulldown smilie menu).
