I, personally, don't see a use for it because it tells you who is online and offline pretty much everywhere else. At the bottom of every page, between usernames and avatars, etc. Which, by the way, I love.

After having gone through this entire thread, some things I saw that I liked were the music player idea and spoiler tags.

It's showing the logo for me...

On the tab itself? Hm, wonder why it's not showing for me...

Shows up for me as well. You got all the latest updates and that?

I was checking the 'Progress Bar' as well. Like every 30 minutes, then 15 when it was closing down, then I was refreshing the page like every 2 right before it came up. Then I nearly weadled myself. :eekdance:

Being able to embed music and such like on SI would be great. However, in a forum of this size, it would soon be over-used and annoying. Imagining opening a page and hearing 4 different songs playing at once.

Psh, I only checked the progress bar twice. Losers.

Music player would get old and there'd be like fifty songs embedded into every page. Just like Random Lyrics except you'll want to claw your ears out after some of the crap some people are gonna post. Also jumbled music sucks.

Wow, somehow, my most active topic is the ACT LIEK A NOOB GAME!!!11oneone, with 213 posts. And that's not even counting the old thread, and I haven't posted in there in months.... does anyone else not have Random Thoughts for that thing?

Hey! This is something to return to! I'd just like to say that so far I love it! Being able to see most of the smileys is a big plus, as is the font colour.

SUGGESTIONS:
1. Put the quote and edit buttons in the top right of posts instead of bottom right.
2. Make the Greasemonkey script work for the new styles.

I don't know if either of those are possible, but they would be cool.

I'm gonna make a seperate thread for that discussion, actually (I'd split your psot into it, but splitting doesn't seem to be working currently)

EDIT: Yeah, go here now.

I've got Forum Games as my most posted in section with over 800 posts, and Word Association game is my most posted in thread. Even though it's been dead for months.

I'm suggesting we try putting the quote button in the top right hand corner, where it was before.

One other thing I've noticed since the upgrade: I'm subscribed to some threads so I get emails when there are replies in them, but I haven't been getting them as often as I should lately. What's up with that?

I was gonna use foes until I realized that would block posts from them, which would result in much less lulz.

Ooh, very sexy new forum. I like it. xD Crisp lines and such.

Nifty little font-color-picker too.

Suggestion
Can the "Users browsing this forum" list go at the top of the board, like, under the board title? I always liked knowing who was looking at the same forum I was.

I second this action. I enjoyed knowing that as well, makes stalking easier.

Oh, pretty reply interface.

And I didn't check the forum's progress once. Probably because I'm not allowed to use the computer on Sundays. Something about being on it constantly every other day.

Also, I have the act like a n00b thread as my most posted in, even though I also have not posted there for some time.

Yeah, I mentioned that earlier. Now both the Wiki and Forum are possessed. :-S

SUGGESTION

Post numbering. The first person to reply to a topic has the subject "1" unless another subject is specified. The next person is "2" and so on.

Why not one of those little Shout! things that go at the top of the forum where you just type something in and its printed in a chat-room style thing.

Hmmm... I don't know, it would pretty much just be Random Thoughts, but on the front page for everyone to read instead of just the people who open the thread.
