[sp_show_poll id=" 3"]

You would have noticed by now that the forum is current setup to show the List of Forums at the top of the page, and then the list of Unread and recently updated topics at the bottom. This poll asks if you have a preference for the layout:

No-brainer.

Nothing worse than combing through a forum to find new posts.
O love will you read the letters I will send to you.

The unread posts button works well enough for me that I don't really feel it's necessary to have a list of unread and recently updated posts at the top. As such I think there should be a large drawing of a fish at the top instead.

I'd like to see stickied threads labeled more prominently.  The little pin is tough to spot sometimes.

That's the way I'm leaning as well, though I'm going to look into methods to allow people to select their preference.

This will definitely happen, possibly as soon as tonight.

Let's not go nuts with the stickies though, huh?

One or two serious ones is all a forum needs.

MS word import button seems to have failed me...

Tried to import b/c the reply text box failed to load for me after 6 tries.

 

Now after the import fail it loaded and this is ctrl-v:

 

 

Agreed 2-4 stickies, depending on how long/often a thread is posted in should suffice.

 

Just discovered the genius of hovering your mouse over the arrows next to original and newest post.  The text balloon preview is sweet.

The pages on this forum are too short.

There. I said it.
People like me just want to watch the world burn.
