Let's hope so eh! Anyway, must be off, got some smartarse troll comments to make..
Ha ha, "on another forum", we hope..
Seriously though, it's been said before - what we need is to host this forum on some better platform, like phpbb or the like. This would make searching easier as well as the normal stuff like editing or deleting posts and moderating. And one other key feature - "view posts since last visit" (which I know was turned off due to database issues).
Actually, you can still view posts since your last visit - it's at the top of the forums page. You *can't* have a widget on the front page that displays the (n) most recent posts, because that requires a big database query every time somebody loads that page, and we get a *lot* of visitors.
There's a new search tool on the front page which you can use for the forum. And when we do move to new forum software, we'll be keeping the feature (it's not a bug) where you can't edit a post if somebody has posted after you; it's there to stop people from throwing a snit and changing the record of what they've said in a conversation, which happened a few times before we started this editing policy.
