I should confess that i have slightly mixed feelings about losing the ultra compact small icon grid display in the old version. But i think on balance it was a tradeoff worth making. If there is real uproar i could always bring back a short 1-line per row view which hides some columns or is usable only by people with huge monitors.Why not stick in an option to use the old one?-mouser (March 20, 2009, 05:48 PM)

I found these, and finished two or maybe three. But I found that I was spending far more effort trying to figure out what, exactly, the question was, compared to the effort of figuring out how to answer it in Python. Who's got time for that kind of nonsense?Agreed!-CWuestefeld (December 22, 2008, 04:01 PM)
Yeah, I'm also against new members not being able to post links - I've often needed to do that as first-post when joining a new forum, for the same reasons tomos states. It would definitely help bring down spam, but... just how much spam do we get, and how much would it annoy legitimate users?Said Perfectly!
Limiting the edit capability to, say, X hours with under 10 posts would probably work out pretty well. Wouldn't be much trouble for regular users, and spammers are very unlikely to do more than a few posts at most.
As for edits showing up on "unread threads", I don't think it would be much of a problem, unless every edit would show up as an entry. Imho it'd be enough for a thread to be flagged as updated (only showing up in the list once), but probably with a per-thread "list of changes"?
This has to be done right - we don't want to flood the board with update thingies, and any new "tools" have to be easy to use-f0dder (November 24, 2008, 04:04 PM)
The secret is a $279 a month dedicated server.WOW!
And it needs to be pointed out that the only reason we can afford that is because of donations from ordinary people to support the site.-mouser (November 20, 2008, 08:26 AM)
Plus I think because the website design is sorta old school .. lolYou gotta love the old school, distraction free, and add free look.-mitzevo (November 20, 2008, 09:12 AM)
