Broads List of Thing To Do

Post #1 by RTWAP » Mon Jun 08, 2015 5:03 pm

As people find things different from the old version, if they want them restored if possible then just post it here.

I'll start:
  • Banner
  • User info on left side of posts
  • Jizzmoppers should be same colour as other users
  • Rep
  • Hide "irrelevant" divisions
  • Figure out if there is some way to do announcements

You can make an announcement by checking the global box when you're making a new thread.

Any way to re-add "Most recent thread" to the right side of the index, instead of just showing the user?

A change we can all get behind: spammers on new broads are porn spammers. Only took an hour for one to best the captcha.

I switched it to a Q&A, which normally works better.

The upgrade to the latest version of this software greatly improves the mobile browsing, but we could also install a tapatalk plugin, for people who want an app.

Obviously I'm not building you a mobile app.

When you get around to putting the banner back in place, I personally liked that it was a link back to the board index. Unless anyone has any objections, I'd like to request that again.

at some point, i'm assuming you'll be getting rid of guests being able to post, if you haven't already.

can we have some warning if you haven't, so that we can make sure that people can/have actually re-registered?

I added the quick reply box everywhere, so you can just use that instead. You can also just ablock the save draft button if you don't want to see it.

okay a couple of other things (just listing them...no hurry)

when quoting a post, if that post quoted a post, it keeps the quoted part. This is starting to looking like the string of threads on the original Hockeys Future

the smilies are causing a lot of scolling down to get to the post button, probably a sizing issue.

OOOH yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of Vinny is gone

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.

Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

...as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel...

Good job Craig.

I don't know if this was already mentioned, but on the main Index page, where it says last post, we see the user. Could we also add the Thread in which that last post is found?

Also, I lost my jizzmopper access.
