I want to drop in even if I can’t think of any changes. I didn’t even know all the features the current forum’s got. I constantly learn new things I can do on the forum. I learned a lot by just reading this thread.  %&)

BTW, like a lot of people I love the flags and the smileys.

Thanks to Ethan for creating this forum and thanks to the moderators for all their support and time.  ^f^

I’ll just wait and let me surprise by the update.  (^)

Just some update on the progress. We will soon begin to invite members to test some new features. If you have more ideas, please keep them coming. Many of your requests will be included in the upgrade.

Here are two changes which you will notice now.

1. PM icon. When you receive new PMs, there will be a flashing icon next to the "My Message" tab.



2. Added the link at the bottom of the page as requested by jessicat so you don't have to scroll up for these two links on the top.

I think it would be cool to have a link at the bottom of the page that will take us to our "replies to unread topics we've posted in". It wouldn't need to have the whole setup like it is at the top of the page with our personal icon, hours spent on site, etc. But just a simple link at the pages bottom to take us back to our unread posts. Just a thought :)

Thank you  :)

You got it. Thanks, hpv and JT for giving us the feedback. This feature will have to wait until the forum is upgraded but for now here is a preview.

It will show a dropdown menu for all pages in thread, posts, PM, etc.

Speaking of emoticons...Ethan, can I ask for one more thing  ?

The ones that have only head to be in the first row after that one: %(...
Like those.  :d)  :8  (^)  %&)  etc...?
plus the ones with signs to be also together... well you know what I mean  :)
Thank you...  :^^)

I'm not Loreen but I found these two. I can't decide which one is cuter. Let's wait for Loreen.





BTW, I love the new smilys. Thanks :^^)

About the smileys, there is a limit the forum could host and we already have 3 full rows of them, we could for sure look for some more to be added but some will have to go.

Great updates Ethan!

Thanks for the new link at the bottom, it will be very cool.
I also luv the new sheep, I always thought it was funny that there wasn't an option for a sheep in the icons.

Though I agree w/ Cham, there are only so many we really need. Yet, I do really like the idea of a blushing one or something that shows embarrassment. One icon per emotion ;D

Thanks for everything Ethan!

I just went on the new forum.
I do like the new top of the page, and like you said, the better use of space on there too.

So far it's all good x

Added the blushing one  {b} and re-arranged them.

I think for now we have enough emoticons. The forum will examine the usage from time to time and make adjustment.

cham made a great solution and I would certainly recommend it! Thanks, cham.

the Ship?

Message icon has always been there. It is just rarely used.

You spoke and we have listened and tried our best to accommodate your suggestions.  :t)

The forum is ready to invite you to do some testing.

[HERE] is the link to the summary of features, important information before the upgrade and link to the test site.

Have fun and play around at the testing site because it won't affect anything in this forum. Just don't get confused with this forum and the test one.  ;) All the data at the testing site will be discarded after the upgrade.

Some more requests...   :)

1.To add to the Font Face :monotype corsiva ( I know I can change it myself, but this is more convenient..)
2. Is it possible to add  width=xxx  in the img.. could be automatic with the option to change the number...
3.I like the future "Please welcome _._._._, our newest member." (I know ,it's not new...) is it possible to have a shortcut(Hyperlink) there, that lead us to the "welcome thread"   ^*()

I am lazy I know...  {b}  "s;"

Omg! I just noticed the first line that shows instead of   'Hello hpv'   ... above the avatar.

'Ya know it could be like this, just like this always, hpv'

how sweet is that!!!   <^(... is this new or just for the test?
