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.

You fickle, fickle man.

I think he explained it better than you did. ;-)

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.
