no offense but...

could we change the title of the art and fiction thread? 'furry fiction' makes me thinf of well.... FURRIES, and no offense to Foxdie if he drops by these parts, but what will be written there is not gonna be about Furries/antrho animals, it will be about Nightcrawler. i jsut feel it gives the wrong idea is all.

i am working on a pic, but i have been quite busy actually jsut getting the forum to WORK there was a lot of bugs to work out beforehand, and still a few (minor ones) popping upthat i have to look into. but i have the picture drawn,i drew it on the train today ;)

What do I think? I think this place is GREAT! I'm glad Hostboard sucks because it made this board possible!

Keep up the good work, Jill and Chris. This board is da bomb. :love:

I love the layout and the color scheme. How hard would it be to be able to use your own avatars? Like one's you either created or weren't on the list? Because I had a pretty good 'crawler icon that I use on the other boards I go to that I think would be nifty here.

Edit: I should read more often. I just read the post about the avatars, so never mind. :dead:

Thanks for the kind words people...

Must be doing something right considering all the praise...and I think the nearly 1100 posts and nearly 50 members (including The Creator!) speak for themselves.

(Thanks again, Jill!)

How about a little hack that shows 'todays birthdays', or even perhaps 'this weeks b-days' or something? ;)

Cool points for you admins! This site is awesome- I think the b-day hack, if not too much work, would be pretty neat as an addition. And the "mood" option is pretty cool, I've never seen that before.

But no complaints here! Keep up the astounding work!

Hmmm... I have another suggestion... (I'm only doing this so you have something to do if you get bored one day... Otherwise you can skip my silly suggestions.)

Well, I have thought like this. When a thread becomes large (that is larger than 4 pages) the forum skips some links to the pages... Hmmm... An illustration might be needed...

Links for a 4 pages long thread: 1 2 ... 4
Links for a 5 pages long thread: 1 2 ... 5
Now, I think it would be better like this: 1 ... 4 5

Why? Well, it's more probable that you've read the beginning pages, but not the later ones, so it would be less irritating to be able to go straight to page n-1 (where n is the current last page) than first going t page n and then click on page n-1...

Uhhh, this sounded like such a simple request... Why then, is it so hard to explain!? *thwacks oneself for being such moron* If someone still is reading this (which I highly doubt), you can just skip this request unless you know exactly where to change this in the script...

I think we should have a section of "write to Marvel" where everyone writes their ideas for Marvel, then the thread gets sent to Marvel.

i agree, i do. but there is nothing i can do to change it. i didn't write the script, i downloaded it. i can modify parts of it, but i dunno how to modify that...

My only question, is how did you make it so fast and so pretty all at the same time? :) (referring to the many many many avatars)
