Post bug reports, Stuff That Needs to Be Changed Because Default Settings Are Ass, or anything else you can think of. Depending on the response I get, maybe I'll keep updating this post to include more bug reports so it's all in one easy-to-find location.

What I have so far:

Avatars need to be fixed---if hosted off-site, there's no limit to how large they are, as demonstrated by suds.

It'd also be nice if there was a way to have text wrap if the forum format was stretched out by an overlarge picture.

edit:

Maybe another format other than phpbb.

Customizable titles.

An "ignore this user" option in people's profiles.

I am having trouble with the option that would allow my avatar to be saved on-site from a URL. It gives me an error when I attempt it.

*update* - After doing some more research, I discovered that my avatar exceed file size limits. Also, the host off-site option doesn't appear to be available anymore.

I can't get my avatar to load at all, either from my computer or from my photobucket account.

Av's aren't working for anyone at the moment, I expect Tat will have it all nicely fixed soon.

No-one can, ma'am. It's been addressed elsewhere. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon.

I can see that they aren't working for anyone right now Very Happy

I couldn't even get it to load when other people had avvies, though.

I guess I'll just wait and hope that it gets fixed with everyone else.

1. phpBB needs to be taken out back and shot
2. the company in charge of phpBB needs to refund the hours of Tatsuya's life back that were wasted while Tat was doubtlessly trying to overcome the numerous faults of the system.

I'm racking my brain trying to come up with small easy shit. Like the rankings.
Do we even want them back? If so do we want set ones or the option to edit our own? Also, who's going to put in the work for that shit?

I want titles. And I'm not talking about titles you get for having X number of posts, I mean titles you can choose or recieve and it shows up under your name.

One forum I was on had a field entry system where you could put your own title in. Everyone had matched fun avatar/title combo. My injun picture has "Akecheta's brave" underneath it.

I was instantly hooked. It's such a wonderful feature.

Having custom titles is easy enough to incorporate into a board like this.

Total agreement on the "do you own title" front.

Would it be possible to hide post counts altogether? And would anyone else like this?

Maybe it would stop everyone from postwhoring to get their old postcount back.

Away with it, I says.

And hurrah for titles!
