    Post Master Suggestion List - Status Update for Week Ending 4/24/04

    Greetings! Here's the much anticipated "Master Suggestion List" with current Statuses. We will endeavor to update this list for you on a weekly basis. Thanks to everyone who took the time to offer up suggestions.


    Done (in selected or all Styles)
    Add padding around the Cells
    Add back the post view on the reply page
    Bolded Quotes
    Remove "Top Viruses" from sidebar
    Create a "link to this post" that is not ONLY one post
    Move Ads to the right
    Move the list of forum browsers to the top of the forum
    Make Forum Icons less "cartoony"
    Thread Starters listed beside the date, not below it
    Shrink Section headers
    Add back the Top 20 Posters List

    In Progress
    Add Drop Down Menu for Subscribed Threads in UserCP
    Increase Sig Character Size Limit

    On "To-Do" List
    Move Reload and PM Buddies to the top of the buddy box
    Add more Styles-Style 2 and 4 suggested

    Researching - will be done once we're confident it won't mess something else up
    Add Case/PSU line to "My System"
    Make side postbit default (at least on some styles)
    Buddy list in UserCP Panel
    Add Optical Specs to "My System"
    Remove (# Viewing) from Forum Page
    Move IM icons and My System to the inside of the "box" on side postbits
    Add user's own recent posts to Quick Links
    Add "Misc" lines to "My System"
    Increase post character limit to accommodate new calculation in vb3
    Add a "reply without quote" button to each post
    Give an option for buddy list refresh times and include "never"
    Add CPU Cooling to "My System" feature

    Under Consideration - requires more input from or more discussion with Ryan
    Create Ad-free Subscription User Group
    Add smiley
    Change to more clickable links and less drop down menus

    Suggestion Unclear, please elaborate
    Move "advanced function buttons" to the UserCP page to avoid "clutter"

    Cannot Implement at this time - technical reasons prohibit us from being able to accommodate now, but may be re-visited in the future
    Change page size to fit 800x600
    Remove color bar and post separators in each post
    Remove Quick Reply button
    Add Spell Checker
    Fix WYSIWYG mode so IESpell works

    Will not be implementing - thank you for suggesting these things, but they are not feasible for this forum and/or not desired by Ryan
    Remove Post Icons from the reply posting screen
    Adding Avatars
    Remove thread icons from "Last Post" on Forum page
    Move the Menu Bar above the Navigation Bar (in forums)
    Remove the feature for displaying IM icons in postbit
    Shrink or Remove forum icons
    Shrink Postbit box (either on top or side)
    Change Sig set up so that text can be displayed beside pics -- would require html to be enabled which is too great of a security risk
    Change Smiley's back to the "old ones" -- although we will not be going back to the vb 2 smilies, we are looking for better and more smilies and will be changing/adding those
    Removing Mouse-Over on Thread Titles -- will not remove, but we have decreased the max size of the mouse-over by 100 characters

    not to worry...if the style gets approved...it will be a seperate choice and wont interfere with the pcp flat you are using now

    Do you mean what about having the option for left or right ads in the Amdmb Legacy Style? If so, that's a Ryan/Joe question and I'll let them address it. If not, please explain the question a little better for us.

    I think he means my style dear.

    I havent yet begun work on it as im still trying to address some server issues but I do hope to get to work on a amdmb style with ads on the right, with the same caveat as Joe's legacy style, gecko 1.4 based browsers have issues with it.

    That is something Ron will continue to try to address and get implemented. Ryan has been kind enough to allow us to have them on the right for one or two styles, even though it pushes them off the page thus making them almost completely ineffective for Mozilla browsers, and we really need to address this issue and get it resolved before we move it on to other styles.

    Make it so that the page doesn't bump back to the top (or bottom) of the page after it finishes loading.. if that's possible.

    I'm sick of scrolling down and starting to read, or trying to click a link, and my screen bumping to the top or bottom, and having to scroll back up (or down)

    We are too. I think that was the first thing I complained about after we upgraded! LOL

    We have been looking into this and will continue to try to figure it out. It didn't show up on the suggestion list you see here because this list is solely suggestions comin' from you, the members, and you're the first person who's mentioned it. (But I bet you'll see it on next week's update. )

    Why can't only externally linked avatars be added?

    With them being linked, the bandwidth and storage shouldn't be adversely affected.

    even externally linked, they are still added to the database, thus affecting size of the DB and bandwith.
    hmm...
