The very fact that people mention "even playing field" in this context shows that the number of posts is used to make some people seem "more whatever" than other people. What's the use of that? I say drop post count altogether.

If anything, display forum registration date. That should be enough to all relevant uses and purposes.

note to yalls: the splash page updates are going in reverse-order -- i.e. all the new news items are being entered below the RIP Duane item, making them seem non-chronological, and keeping the RIP item on top makes it seem at first that there are no new news items.

Thanks. Our news engine is a bit of a mess still.

I always thought this forum was very easy to read. The categories are perfect. But what makes the real magic of it is when happens a buzz like before FMRM or Bluefinger, but this is a genuine thing. I dont know why people dont get as much excited with the Golem, I think this is the only thing that really counts right now for FBF fans. And the EDF album, the one with Rabbit Hole and The Water, wich is totally ignored right now. But what I mean is "as far as your site exists again, dont worry about it, FB upcoming records should keep it alive". Graphics? Who needs graphics? It's about music. I never go to the black francis site because it has all these graphic things.

I think the layout of this forum is great; as Grotesque said, "very easy to read." I like seeing the number of posts, not to feel superior (nor inferior) but out of curiosity. It's amazing to me that some people are up to 5 digits in posting.

If it bothers people, perhaps it could be kept under each person's profile, so if I wanted to see how many times I've posted, I can still check it out.

This is a good moment to say what a great forum this is. Interesting topics, nicely laid out...thanks!

I agree with above 3 posts.

Also... I am slow -- when did stars start getting doled out? is this ebay?

Well, the 'new' site has been put on indefinite hiatus, the stars are a product of upgrading the existing site and we could put the bees back, but a little change goes a long way. :)

Is it possible to change the forum software so that users can select their time zone (depending on where they live), so that all displayed timestamps make more sense? That would be a big improvement for me.


it's educational

Hmmm... it is probably possible, I'll have Floop look into it.

I've been wondering that for a while also, would be useful feature to have otherwise it can be confusing trying to work out when the last post was and stuff.
