I was wondering if it would be possible linkify the thread icons, so when you click one, you're taken taken to a list of every thread that used that icon. A "Sort by Thread Icon" type deal, I guess.

Or would the work needed to implement it outweigh the usefulness of the feature?

In short, it's kind of already done, but I wasn't happy with it.

I like this idea, though. As my old boss would sometimes say, STAY IN TUNE

Ironic... CRZ killed my love of this idea in the first place.

Okay, most of the icons are clickable and MAGIC will happen when you click on them. (Not the smileys, though - just the forum-specific ones)

I hope this means that people will work harder on applying an icon to their threads appropriately when it's appropriate! (I'm a dreamer.)

Hmm, you found the one icon that apparently didn't get tagged properly.

(If anybody else finds one, let me know here or via PM)

Just wanted to say how much I like this feature. I enjoy reading what people were saying about the show at the time, especially Dr Unlikely. It gives some interesting perspectives when I finally get around to watching it on DVD. Cheers for adding it.

Say, try this out:

I may change it later, so consider it a BETA feature for now. ;-)

I like it!

Would it be helpful to actually have seperate tables (or just rows in a table) with a header labeling them, i.e. "NFL," "MLB," "TV Shows," etcetera? Or by which forum group they belong in?

I suppose it would, but I'm pretty lazy and this is just a quick'n'dirty page. Right now, everything's in alphabetical order by filepath, so it goes

.../baseball/*
.../basketball/*
.../football/*
.../hockey/*
.../movies/*
.../music/*
.../tv/*
.../video/*
.../w/*
.../wrestling/*

I had thought briefly about reorganizing it, but then I figured "This isn't something that's going to get a lot of use and I should spend less time on it." I have a feeling Guru already thinks I've spent too MUCH time making it needlessly complex as it is.

Very nice. I was about to ask what the blank box was, and then I realized it was Sleuth.
