I know that there is little to nothing you guys can do about the forums and while the Vanilla-team is known to be rather supportive, they seemed to have ignored previous input so far.
I would still like to drop this here and suggest an option to ignore topics. Not because i'm a grumpy old codger and get mean all the time, but sometimes various topics i'm not interested in stay afloat in "recent discussions" forever and just don't want to leave the first page.
We have bookmarks (does anybody use that feature?) to keep track of topics, so why not ignore some as well? At least an option to untag them, so that i don't see that 198 people have answered since i accidently clicked a topic weeks ago.
Ok, that was that.
Then on a sidenote i'd like to say that i find it too bad that this section has indeed come down to "SITE suggestions" only.
Since the switch to the new forum, it doesn't really apply to anything but the mainpage anymore.
Many people have suggested and are waiting for colored text, underline, paragraphs
getting fixed (arrghh!!), 60sec edit timer since the forum has launched and
nothing ever happened.
While i suppose that people spend way more time on the forums than on the mainpage and have to fiddle with bugs and inconvience on a daily basis here, it seems that we can only suggest stuff for the mainsite -that will then be considered when the "new website" launches.(running gag alert!)
That being said, i'd like to add that i love everybody in this forum right now and in this very moment!
