If major changes are in the works, is there any possibility that graphics option (and maybe color scheme) could be tied to an individual computer? I know I'm not the only person who has viewed the site from work and home and got tired of toggling Dial-Up Mode to make sure no surprising graphics appeared at work.

Since you guys have added stuff I didn't think was possible I might as well ask if you guys can add this ...

Is it possible to show post distrabution by folder much like the board does with posts by time of day? I think it would be interesting to see who posts their percentage of posts where.

Our biggest problem with doing a lot of the things people have been asking for lately is there's no direct path in the database to get from a POST to a FORUM. The indirect path is POST to THREAD, then THREAD to FORUM. We should probably just add one more field to the posts table, but that means altering, what, 225K+ rows so it's not something I want to do if I can avoid it/it's not something I want to do until I'm really sure I can take the time to know what I'm doing while I'm doing it. What?

Bottom line is: yeah, we need to rework the tables a bit, but that moves the timeline from near-term to Real Soon Now. So when you see some things getting done in a couple days and some things just talked about for weeks, that's usually the deal.

How about some code that subtracts from people's ratings points when they "chatroom" in a thread they started themselves? I really hate that.

So...What I think you are saying is that in the posts table, there is no forum # associated with each post ID #?

What I'm asking for those who can't speek DB, this is post #225296 (according to the url I'm looking now, and site feedback is forum #4. What I am asking is if for the record for post #225296, is it linked to forum #4 in the tables) I'm thinking CRZ is saying "No." to that. That would need a bit of redoing of the tables.

Since everyone is throwing in their 2 Cents. I have one silly idea. What about adding on a "Spoiler" forum? So that way you can post about a new movie or TV show you have seen without having to write spoilers in the title all the time. Also, it can help the Survivor fans in Australia. You don't have to worry about clicking a Survivor thread in the "Random" forum and be upset about it ruining it for you. It can also help the wrestling area. That way you don't have to block off the wrestling forum during RAW. If you want to post about RAW during the show you can do it in the "Spoiler" forum so not to spoil anything for the rest of the states.

Or...you could wait until the show is over!

I close the forum during RAW because people can't help themselves and it's just easier when people don't have the opportunity, plus I don't have to constantly repeat myself with all the new people who would inevitably try to start threads halfway through segment one.

We still have a freeze on new forums, but rest assured "Spoilers" isn't even on that radar. It's not THAT bad a problem - especially when people use the [spoiler]/[/spoiler] tags.

Would it be possible to see (in the profiles) all of the rankings that other wieners have bestowed on them? The ranker(s') screename wouldn't be necessary, but maybe just a break down to see how the numbers add (average) up? :-)

It's a weighted average on a secret Zim formula, so a breakdown would be pretty much worthess (or give away the secret formula if someone was REALLY bored). It would be interesting to know how many 0 and/or 10 ratings you have recieved.

Possible, yes. Happening, no. :)

How about a "Highlight New Posts" option in the post preferences. That way you can easily find the new posts and you don't lose track of the discussion like you can with the "Show New Only" option

If you show all posts in a thread, there SHOULD be different colours for posts before or after the last time you marked the forum read. (You do "Mark forum read," don't you?)

Yeah I do. I noticed that there where two different colours, but I didn't realize that they were different after the last "mark forum read".

What about a chart, like the "posts by time of day" chart off the profile page, showing posts by forum? Has that been brought up/shot down before? Or is there a problem having to do with the "tables" issue (mentioned in post #23 of this thread)?

Using my minimal database knowledge, I'd guess that yeah, there'd again be the post->forum problem as before. I imagine a threads per forum graph is doable, but that's not what you asked for. :)

Hey, how about like a "buddy" feature, where you can set certain account names as your buddy? And then by clicking on the buddy link, you can get a listing of all the new posts your buddies have made. And then you can ignore everyone else!

Pretty good, huh?

I have use a system just like that. For phpBB, there was a mod written just like you suggested and on other phpBB boards it has worked great.

The mod did significantly rewrite the viewthread.php routines. Hell, it was basically a rewrite of phpBB.

Alas, I think you're stuck with dialup mode. You can either evade ALL the header/footers, or NONE of them. There really isn't a feasible way to program an in-between.
