Nice avatar, Glistam. Oddly appropriate, yet I can't think from whence it came.

Question:

Is it possible to construct the poll creating options to allow and display multiple polls at the top of a single thread, so that a list of questions can be answered?

Example:

Coke vs. Pepsi
Sprite vs. 7up
Mr. Pibb vs. Dr. Pepper

...with bars and numbers next to each?

Edited for spelling.

The board currently doesn't allow it. I can look through the mods and see if there's somethign that can do it, then see how involved it is.

Glistam I don't remember if this is the right place but did you make it so we can log out and log back in and still have new markers showing?

Edited for spelling confusion.

It would be nice to have one, especially since I'm using safari now and it shows RSS feed counts right below the address bar.

I'm not sure how useful it would really be. What would it do, show you when someone makes a new post? I'm not really all that familiar with RSS. If you can find a phpbb mod that does this, I'll give it a try.

Are the "new post" icons disappearing on anyone else before they even read the thread? They seem to reset any time I go to a specific section of the forum now.

Not sure but the new icon for this post showed up. Maybe it has something to do with the server my connection is routed through being in Germany.

Browsers are all a bunch of inbred bitches anyway. Lookit the copyright info -- you will see that Explorer, Netscape, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and several others all share code from NCSA Mosaic, circa 1994. No wonder they all feel pretty much the same, except for minor details like security!

Glistam: could you, por favor, give us Board Moderator types the BanHammer? I have been killing spam all night, from only two users. I am enjoying the Spam forum, and don't want to block everything again, but I also don't want to spend an assload of time killing useless posts. Ban power would solve that problem.

The new board format seems to lack any indictators for links. The text isn't underlined, or a different color or anything. I certainly like having those indications, because sometimes people link inline & you wouldn't know about the link unless you ran your mouse over all of their text to check for them.

Could we underline links, change their color, or both?

I'll take a look at the code for it and see what needs to change. It was just a quick skin I grabbed off of the phpBB site - I didn't do too much to see how the colors really worked.

You can also select the old blue we used before April Fools, that option is in your profile. Links display properly with that theme.
