Actually, now is a pretty good time to ask this.

As many have noted already, myself included, the new forum requirements will certainly discourage troublemakers. I can't say that it can prevent them entirely, but it's a great start.

But considering what must happen when trouble does arise:

Is there an administrative policy regarding suspensions and bannings?
Will there be functionality added for moderators to delete posts, and for even users to remove their own?
Will you be the sole moderator/administrator, or will you require assistance in this?

Granted, I don't want to turn STC to get bogged down in bureaucracy, but perhaps a little bit is needed.

Just curious, thanks!

Ahh?! What do we have here? An Alabama fan?
Haha, actually I saw your icon a few days ago, Charlie, so I decided to add some exciting rivalry on here by placing the GREATEST team, Auburn Tigers, as my avatar. =P But, you and Adam are bama fans, that's not right. I'm losing 1-2. =/

Amazing... I escape from football-obsessed Alabama all the way to Tokyo, Japan, only to see the Auburn-Alabama rivalry played out on my soundtrack web site.

That said, Roll Tide big_smile

LOL, With Adam on my side, I can't lose, Tim. tongue  I think it should be more like 10-1! If you posted on the RPGN boards, you'd see me talk about it more, heh.

Adam: I remember you being from Alabama (Greenville area?), but I had forgotten until you mentioned it again. Roll Tide indeed!

Firefox isn't available for OS 9.x, and Opera runs reeeeeeeeallllly slowwwwwwlly on OS9. I will give Opera another shot, though. As for Microsoft, I believe they said they'd be re-starting IE for the Mac, but I can't be sure anymore. Actually, the only time I use 9.x  and IE is at work (and I do visit the forums quite a lot while at work ^_~ ). Otherwise, I'm using Firefox. (And the forums look just dandy on FF. ^_^ )

I'm a huge Opera fan myself. I just looked it up, and sadly, Opera 6.03 is the latest available for OS 9. It wouldn't surprise me if it ran slowly. Sooo, I guess your workplace just needs to jump into the 21st century. wink

You said you use FF at home, but what OS? I'm obligated to say give the newest version of Opera a try there. big_smile

Edit: Oops, sorry for the double post. Won't happen again.

Yes, a separate poll forum would be a good idea.

Adam, is it possible to make this function appear on every page?  It would nice to jump from the end of any thread back to the new posts list, with a choice of seeing new posts for the current forum or the entire site.  Thanks.

I absolutely love the "New Posts" link for each main section. I guess if it can be used elsewhere, it would probably be a good idea.

Another thought I had - this thread is currently in the Game Music section. It may be pertinent to create a new section just for announcements. Or announcements/technical area type thing. Anyone?

I second that.

I'll be handling things for the time being.  Moderators are an option if it comes down to it.

Yeah I was debating trying to add that tweak.  Would adding a link to the drop-down link list at the bottom of each page suffice?

Doable.  Might test it out to see whether everybody's keen on a Polls forum.

A direct link would be ideal, but that would certainly suffice if the direct link is too difficult to implement.

Did I miss something? I don't see the "mark all posts as read" link on the front page anymore...

I don't either, and posts don't seem to mark themselves as read even when they have been read, nor do they after clicking Refresh/Reload...

Maybe I was a little hasty in getting rid of that ^_^;  Does anybody actually need that link?

I think the way the new post markers work is when you log off - either manually or automatically after being inactive on the forums for a certain amount of time - they're then cleared away.  I don't think actually viewing the post has any effect.  A bit unintuitive I suppose.

Is it possible to have all URLs in posts targeted to a new browser window?  Currently, clicking URLs in posts opens the new page in the same window, and I have to ALT + <-  to get to the forums again.

Yeah, I know it's a minor thing and I can just right-click and open the new window myself.  But still...

Please don't do that. I want to decide myself if I want to load the site in the current window, a new tab or a new window. If the URL tragets a new window I can't load it in the current window/tab anymore.

I think I'm with Datschge - I'd rather decide myself if I want to open a new window and either hold control + click or right-click and open in new tab.

But I *definitely* would like the "mark all posts read" link! smile

Agreed. Though I *would* like a link to the index directly from the homepage, rather than going to one first.

Adam Corn Jan 22, 2006

Yeah, no opening links in seperate windows I think.  Really hate it when web pages do that, especially when I'm using tabbed browsing in Firefox.

Joshua, I will fix it soon so that clicking on the black "Forums" header in the sidebar goes to the forums index.

Are Datschge and I the only ones pulling for a return of the "Mark all posts as read" feature? If logging out and in again is the only way to reset the "new post" visual cue, it seems almost necessary, as signing in and out every time I want to quickly see if new posts are made is a bit cumbersome. I just don't see why not, I can't imagine it being a very obtrusive feature to those who don't use it.

Wtf, I've talked about this twice already. No, you're not the only ones. And I even brought it up first.

Easy now, oversight on my part, apologies. Wasn't trying to steal your thunder or anything.

You don't have to manually log out do get the messages marked as read, the forum should do it automatically once you've gone a few minutes without using it.  Seems to me that it's easy enough to remember what posts you've read after you've recently logged in, even if they're not marked as such.

Give it a few days please and if a bunch of you still find it to be a problem I'll add the link back.

Datschge Jan 23, 2006

Seems fine to me (I think POPOBOT5000 mistaked me for BAMAToNE as I never had an issue with that and am never using 'Mark all posts as read' anywhere anyway).
