Can you edit your post once someone has replied to it? The edit icon seems to disappear after there's another post in the thread - could be an arse if you can't edit earlier posts - partic in lists (or stats... or footy posts... or for pedantic posters who secretly make loads of typos but quickly edit them all)

Only 2 other gripes I can see... having to click into the links before getting the new post option... That extra one click god knows how many times a day will soon add up :D

But more importantly/annoyingly; I can't really tell the difference between the red of unread posts and blue of read posts... The yellow/grey combo of old was easier for us folk with colour 'issues'

Don't know if either of these things can be addressed?

Oh... And the 'report' button is dangerously close to 'quote' is it needed?

Oh... and that ability to edit came and now it's gone again...

I also noticed that about the click to read new posts link being one more click away. A little annoying but not too bad.

I never thought about the colour scheme for colour defectives. I will look into it.

The edit post option is currently set at 30mins. Delete time is also set at 30mins. This can be set to whatever we want. Is there a consensus?

it is useful if posts can be edited indefinitely like in the example. Not too fussed on the 2 clicks to start - just being picky.

Just noticing that some clicks open up topics on page one and not the page of the last post.

It would be nice to have a convenient link to the 'Index' at the bottom also.

Two things, chief:

1 - mobile appearance is nice, however, your adverts are hidden in a Link called "Links" - even if they're left hidden, perhaps change that to "Sponsors" so people are aware that there's folks helping keeping the meters turning;

2- could we possibly have quick reply enabled to make it easier to respond? https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... prosilver/

A like button would be nice, it would save on all of those annoying '+1' posts.

Liking the new messaging system, with the message history.

A like system does exist but the coding for phpbb3 is annoying and patches more difficult to implement as a result...

Last time I changed my avatar I was inundated with complaints (okay then - just the one complaint) - apparently everybody loves Roobarb. I daren't risk alienating my adoring public again, but as a half measure I've changed the background colour. It's a risk, I know, but one I'm prepared to take for the good of the forum! It's all for you, theOptom! 8)
That was me, I believe.

But I like the new one!
