Due to the installation of the new version of the board, some of our features were lost. I talked about what happenned here, so this thread is for you to tell me what other features are missing that you notice and would desire (besides a chatroom. I already kow you all want a better chat room).

i think you should break the board once a month or so, as it seems to make everyone come out of the woodwork and post... all right, not really, but it had been quiet around here for a while, until the board was broken, and then everyone remembered that they wanted to post.

another thing i've noticed. when i post, it tells me that there are new posts in that thread, even though i was the one to post them. and they stay that way until i go look at them again. i don't think it used to do this, but i am unsure enough that this is half question(did it used to do this) and half complaint(fix it so it doesn't, damnit). there you go. if it did used to do that, can we fix it anyway? thanks.

also, it is conciveable that i may be attempting to learn some php in the near future, and if so, i will volunteer to assist you with this whatnot. it really all depends on how the next six months go.

i know that you posted the title/ranking system, but i can't find it anywhere. do you remember where it was, or if not, could you post it again? (the lurker/citizen/bigadeer aspirant thing)

Citizen 300
Brigadier Aspirant 500
Brigadier Recruit 700

So, uh, how does the Brigadier Commando at 2500 differ from the one at 3500?

The graphic that's displayed with it. I have those bars under the title, and at every change listed above the bar itself changes.

Here's one: How 'bout includin' a poll with each weekly discussion thread?

Just basic stuff.

Legalize pot -- yes / no ?
Legalize prostitution -- yes / no ?
Work ethic -- hard charger / kissass ?
boyscouts -- choir boys / lost boys ?

You get the idea.

The meat is in the discussions. I think we all realize that. The poll just gives you an idea of where you are in the spectrum on this board.

Just an idea.

I made another board-related suggestion in a separate thread called a small suggestion instead of this one, 'cause sometimes I get stupidifized and spend hours trying to stick the triangular peg in the square hole that's right next to the triangular hole--no anatomical remarks, please; too amateur.

Glistam--what happened to the weekly discussions? Those were fun. I miss them.

Who's with me?
