but when you click on a link someone has posted on a thread, can you make it open in a NEW PAGE/TAB instead of going to it directly and losing where you were in the first place?


Sounds like right clicking a link in Chrome has this feature natively

Maybe it's a setting I'm missing but how can I make it so when I open a thread that I'm subscribed to, it goes to to most recent unread post?

Also, not sure if it's worth anything to you guys but I like the forums that have a reputation system. Thoughts?

The little orange icon next to the topic title takes you to the first unread post.

I have a feedback system on my list, if that's what you mean?

and to make it open to the most recent posts, just save THAT PAGE as the shortcut :) thats what i do anyways, and when i open it goes there.

and as for opening in another tab, if i right click in Chrome i can choose to open in another tab yeah. but every other forum i am on when you click a link it opens a new tab, maybe its in the settings somewhere.

Thanks for clearing up the recent post thing.

As for reputation, I'm not sure if the the same as feedback. Bascially on other forums I'm on if someone posts something useful, cool, funny, etc you can give that user a positive vote aka +rep. If someone is being dumb/fighting/etc there is a negative rep button. Each user then has a score or graphic that displays how helpful/awesome they are or not. Not sure if this is making sense.

I'd like to see a rating for sellers or buyers posted right next to the persons name or at least somewhere in their profile. . For example, +3 for three successful transactions, etc. That'd make it easier to buy, sell, swap, etc with confidence.

Yeah, I'd really like to implement something like the Fred Miranda forum uses (photography gear). Will see what I can come up with.

Any way to lengthen posts per page or is that taxing on higher picture posts?

Can we get rid of the "your post was successful..." page after replying to or starting a thread? Its just a little annoyance.

Also, if I ever come to this website on my Xoom or Android phone and that stupid tapatalk bs popup appears I am quitting and setting fire to all my Audis.

No popups from an Android browser?.... Weird, I use Tapatalk, but when I go to the browser and navigate to any Tapatalk compatible website, the pop-up shows up for me too... But I avoid it by just using the app and not the browser...

+1 for iOS. I get the popup as well and all tapatalk supported sites. Just hit cancel and carry on is what I do.

Admin can turn the tapatalk notification off, and it appears they have done so already, as this is the first visit from my phone and no stupid pop-up to annoy me :D
