    As far as I know, there's no multi-quoting feature yet. I'd appreciate if it was added someday.

    Edit: It would also be cool if you could see who is viewing a thread.

    Re: The Suggestions Thread

    It would also be nice not having to click "reply" every time you want to post in a thread. Maybe an idea for the future. :)

    Re: The Suggestions Thread

    Oh had no idea that was there hahaha. Do you have to click the plus to open it every time or is there a possible way of it staying open? If that makes any sense.. haha

    Well, it is possible, for sure. I don't think it's necessarily needed, as it's not a huge effort to click on the plus.
    By the way, I noticed that if you don't click on the plus and quote someone's post, a new page will be loaded but if you click on it before quoting it, the message will be copied and pasted  into  the 'Quick Reply' window, which is quite useful in my opinion.

    Re: The Suggestions Thread

    There actually is a multi quote you can do....... When you quote someone, scroll down and you can insert any other quote, so its like multi quoting. ;o

    If it's possible. Make it so the youtube link actually lets you watch the video on here, so you don't have to go on the main site to open a new window. Less of a hassle imo.

    Pretty sure he's talking about 'new'-post-list of every thread, no matter in what sub-forum it's posted.

    Re: The Suggestions Thread

    They're clearly working on this, as stated in a few other topics. It takes more time than it looks.

    There is, but there's no exact link for it as far as I know. All the "unread posts" links on the front page only let you see unread posts in that specific forum.

    However, this link shows ALL unread posts, forum-wise: http://mkboards.com/index.php?action=unread. Indeed, it's possible to add this link to the front page on SMF. As far as I know, I don't see this link anywhere, so in the future the admins can add it.


    Also, a nifty feature you guys may not know...

    On SMF, for some reason, when you post a reply, you are directed back to that list of forum threads instead of actually directing you to the thread you replied to. Right now it's not that big of a problem because of the very few threads, but it will be an annoyance in the future once this forum is more populated.

    So, to go back to a thread after posting, you can go to Profile -> Modify Profile -> Look and Layout. Then find the option "Return to topics after posting by default" and check it.

    And if you need a visual guide, here:

    Re: The Suggestions Thread

    Can you be more specific on this request? Do you mean having to click "post" instead of just pressing enter?

    We're more concerned with completing our primary skin than alternates right now. If we make another it will either be an alternate color of what we're creating or there won't be one for a while. I believe you can choose from a selection of premade forum skins from your control panel.

    One nice feature to add is to allow users to adjust the time zone via their profile in order to have the time of each post match the time zone for the user. This would make viewing topics and posts a bit less confusing in terms of time.

    Re: The Suggestions Thread

    I think he might be talking about quick post where you don't have to click [Post] at the bottom and avoid opening up a new window. Sort of like what you see on the mkwii.com forums

    Not saying this needs to be done right away, but since I know there are plans for a Mario kart league on this forum, preparation should be done to implement an awards system. (This can be done via SMF modding)

    Also, I think it would be excellent to add a 24 hr online list.

    http://mkboards.com/index.php?action=recent
    It's in the "Forum Stats" at the bottom page, click the link "View the most recent posts on the forum."

    Re: The Suggestions Thread

    If I can make it less retarded I will do so.

    We've installed an "Ultimate Profile" mod that adds a while bunch of features to your profile. Hopefully it all works well; if not, you know what to do.
