First, are you going to add emoticons to the forum?

Second, are you going to make it so posts' time stamps show up in our local time zone?

The answer is "probably" to both of those questions.

everyone should check the time stamps on posts, to see if they match your local time zone. They should.

Note to self: forum page should have a "page selector" for threads that have more than one page.

Doug, I think that it would be handy to have the links for the next pages on a thread at the top of the page as well, instead of just at the bottom. Just a thought.

Yep. That's the next tweak, now that the personal URL feature is complete.

Ok... Um... I noticed that when I'm at a computer that hasn't been on this site recently, all the stars for new posts are lighted. I dunno if that's because theres a new post that the computer hasn't seen or not, but it would seem to *me* that those should be tied in with the user profile, not the computer. But maybe thats just my flawed opinion. :-P

The setup you're seeing is designed for the convenience of "lurkers". Lurkers are people who visit the site regularly, but don't join up and participate. Every site has them, and considering the nature of this site, you can be sure that we have more lurkers here than most sites, because there are a lot of people who don't consider themselves writers, but still want to read what you and everyone else has written.

So how does it work? The site remembers two sets of flags. One for YOU logged in, and one for the random person who might visit the site on your computer but not be logged in.

If that explanation does not describe what you're seeing, let me know.

I *think* so, except that when I'm here at the shop, and logged in, all the threads are flagged, but when i'm at home, only the threads that have had new posts that I haven't read yet are flagged.

Ok, not a forum question, but for some reason I can't seem to access the rest of my favorites list on my Profile Page. When I click the link "More Favorites" I get the following: "The page you tried to access does not exist on this server. This page may not exist due to the following reasons:" etc.

yep! Noticed that this morning (because someone clicked on that page and so it showed up in my error log). I'll be fixing that soon. :)

This should be taken care of now.
