Mike, I know you have highly customized this software and don't want to upgrade to the newer version with all the new gadgets. I use a few newer ones and there is a couple things I really, really like that would rock if you could figure out how to do.

The #1 thing is having the option to get email notification when someone replies to a thread you're replying to. I think that's been brought up before, is it doable on ours?

Another nice feature I've seen on the newer ones is the 'preview' when posting, so you can see how it looks before submitting.

All the other junk mostly, and stuff like avatars, well...it's neat but doesn't really add good functionality, those 2 do.

(Just my wish list....)

#1: is already available. In your profile click the "email me when my post gets a reply".

Make sure you email address is up to date too.

#2: I don't believe there's a "proof-read" option. If your reply looks or reads like crap, click the edit button and fix it.

Hmm, I must be missing something, in the profile all I see is:

Allow Bulletin Board Administrators and Moderators To Send You Email Notices?

Keep your email address viewable to other users when you post notes?

It's actually on the screen when you "Post New Topic." You have to be the originator of the topic.

Email Notification: emails sent to you whenever someone replies. Only registered users are eligible.

No, no, no...I'm not talking about that.

On other boards, when you reply you also have an option down near the 'show sig' that lets you get email notification. It makes it a lot easier to keep track of threads you're talking in, not just the ones you started.

He means that others can subscribe to replies when someone posts to someone else's topic...as in they want to see how the topic goes, and who replies to it as well.

You're on the same page rs, that or we're both off in the same little world.

I find that very nice option to keep track, because who hasn't posted to a topic and forgotten which/where.

I thought he still ran the same software that you run, but I guess he changed, says phpBB at the bottom.

Picture is worth a thousand words:

The server already sends thousands of emails out every day. I doubt I'd turn that function on even if it was available.
