I just wondered if any of our new members had any suggestions that they feel may improve their forum experience.
I personally think that this forum platform is the best I have come across in all my years of 'foruming'
And that there is very little I can do to make it better......but, you never know yes

This is an easy forum to get used to with a simple menu structure and clean presentation.

Just a few things off the top of my head - none are necessary but things I miss from elsewhere



A "Go Down" button at the top of the page would be nice so you can jump to the last post in a thread rather than having to scroll down.

Similarly, an "active topics" button at the bottom of the page would save you having to manually scroll to the top to select the remaining active topics

A more generous helping of smileys would be nice - andsome might agree - he exhausted all the smileys at WF yes .

A facility to bookmark a particular thread or threads

Thanks for that Malcolm - I clearly needed to do more browsing of the forum before going to print.

I don't see my avatar when I open the active topics page - but I now see at the right of the title bar three little arrows - the right one being "down to bottom". 
This mirrors your second point about the up arrow at the foot of the page.

I was aware of the 3 pages of smileys - but I am spoiled on my other forum by a much wider choice - I have pinched some and entered them in my posts here

Oh - I got favourites now. I assume the route to open your list of favourites is to click on your profile and then favourites. There seems to be no "one click" route.


Thanks again.

You got me there Alan, I have never used the favourites option and had no idea how to access them..

I was told it was to make sure you were still here and did not appear to be wanting to go back!

Andsome - sorry to read that - but it all kicked off following my last post there. The difference being that I didn't do any overt soliciting.

We could all change our names and avatars here, then they would be spying on someone else. You could change your avatar to an ugly one and call yourself gruesome as camouflage
