A button that bans Alex from signing up.

I'd still like an inline chatbox like RM. Discord does the job though, but it's not perfect.

I think it was you that requested linkback and post numbers, which I have already located. So if all goes well, those will be coming soon.

Post numbers and linkback are both really useful tools, yeah.

Honestly, though, I'd trade all of the upgrades in the world for having something similar to the black and red theme come back. Even though this one doesn't draw attention at work.

I don't have Quick reply here either. And I third the post number request. I haven't figured out multi quotes either though someone said we had them.

"Who Posted" is not a function, like when you look to see who posted by post count in a game in the Sub Forum view? "Replies" isn't a clickable link as it used to be. So can we add that to the list?

Thanks :)

I was requested to see if we can adjust the board width in the two new styles. I have added a mod that allows the user to set their own width. You can see it at the top next to the Quick links icon. It does not work for the Carbon, but it does work for the negreen-black. I've also got expanded poll functions installed. We will be able to set poll voters as visible, but we still can't see the order in which votes were cast.

Daisy, someone asked about a "Jump to first unread post" feature in the Elemental game thread. I looked for that feature but couldn't find it. I don't even know if its something we had on the old board but I thought I would mention it here just in case.

Also, I wonder if it's possible to get someone to code the vote order for us. In the past thats been a pretty significant feature in games where the votes are not changeable.

Displaying voter names in polls and ISOs are the two most important missing features to me. I assume you're already working on restoring those (if they aren't back already). And it's only a cosmetic thing, but I miss the old black and red display. That's not something we need to worry about until everything else is back in order though.

Yep both are already fixed. Polls are only lacking the ability to see what order the votes were placed in now.

I don't seem to have the option to change the number of posts per page, which is something I prefer to customize because I don't like really long pages. Can we get that option back?

Huh... it is indeed, but the feature doesn't actually work? I just checked, and my posts per page says it is set to 20 which is how I had it before the update, but since the site came back up I've had the default 40. I tried submitting the setting again and it hasn't changed (threads are still loading 40 ppp). Odd.

Is the order in which voters appears in polls screwy, by any chance? In a current mafia game, I'm now fairly sure that, in front of a player, I'm seeing a voter who voted second appear ahead of a voter who voted first.

Vote Order is not actually installed yet. I am not sure what the ordering protocol is, but at this time, if you want voting order you have to do it the old fashioned way and glean it from the thread.

It's on the list.

What Sherry said. The polls don't currently have an option for having the votes listed in order of when they were placed. I have yet to see a mod for that and suspect it might be something that was custom coded by someone who is not present in our community any longer.

I want to bring this forward again. I'm set to 100 ppp but its not loading anywhere near that many. Daisy you may want to take a look at this as I don't think the function is working.

The "carbon" skin is black and gray which is a bit closer in the interim. Definitely easier on my eyes than the white/blue stuff.
