    Other people have asked for sub-forums, but I'd like to ask specifically for a dev forum for those looking for feedback on their games, etc. Maybe move that TBS strategy design thread in there as well, keep it easier to find rather than having it a mess in the bigger boards.

    I would like to give the following feedback.

    The new forum makes people post more. I deem it a fine success.

    I think the return of the Writer's Hive sub forum would be a welcome addition to the new forums, there was some excellent stuff in there from time to time.

    Yes, this is something I'm used to in forums (and, I think, something that happened on the old forum). Is it possible?

    Well, okay, mildly important then.

    This would be cool:


    Optional Steam integration in the forums.

    I have an issue with the search function. It appears that when I search for a word (like "Terraria"), the results tell me which thread the word is in, but don't allow me to go directly to the first post in which it appears. With threads potentially being long and variable in their topic-stickiness, this would be useful.

    While tinkering I've found that displaying 40 posts per page, firefox's in-page search and each individual thread's "search thread" function have helped.

    It's also quite possible that I'm Doing It Wrong. Happy to be guided.

    Well, my only suggestion is that after you find the thread, you can actually use the "search this thread" button to find the posts.

    Ooh, this is something I'd like to see. Not even that elaborate, but just something like they did with skype and everything, a little icon that links to your Steam profile.

    Well I tried to search for "rss" to see if it was mentioned in this seven page thread, but apparently that term was excluded because it's too short. I know RSS feeds can be enabled in vBulletin but for the life of me I can't find one on this forum. It would be really helpful for threads like the Blood Bowl leagues, which sometimes get 40 posts a day. If the feature is already in and I'm an idiot, feel free to tell me so AFTER you point me in the right direction.

    Liking the new look in general, and the new Ignore function. I do miss the old Gravatars though. I haven't decided how much effort I can be bothered to get it back yet though.

    The ability to have our real names show up somewhere on our posts would be nice.

    edit: also, remove postcounts from the bit to the left of posts, and let us set our own titles (so I never lose the "Obscure Node" one, for it is good).

    edit 2: can someone please take mercy on us all and change the title of the Game Clubs forum to "Game Clubs And General Sociability OK" before that lower case K drives us all insane.

    This. Or at least make the post counts actually work.

    We have a "block" function on the front page now, I don't suppose there are any plans to extend that functionality to the forums as well? We seem to have a huge volume of new posters back here, and most of them seem lovely, but a few... well it's always nice to have options, no?

    vinraith - click on the offensive party's name and choose "View Profile", then "Add To Ignore List". You need never hear from me again :)

    I wonder, are you told when someone ignores you? You could start libelling them with every post and they'd never know.

    Bah, I poked around the interface a bit but totally missed that. Thank you!

    What happened to Professor Farnsworth? Your posts are just not the same when I don't subconsciously read them in his voice.

    We could probably do with a retro gamers forum for all of those people who want to tell us how great the old days were (and how terrible the new games are).
