Personalizing threads...

Was thinking based on some people complaining that others are commenting that others who comment on their threads ruin the video, flame/spam the responses with criticism, and have too many negative (or in Peppe's case positive) ratings. Maybe we could have more options to make threads read-only, disable ratings, and report other users for spamming a thread or ruining it. The report would be read and voted on whether or not that user should be able to continue posting on that thread and if they should be punished. This system would obviously be used more when there are more people active on this site, but just figured I'd throw it out there.

Some other ideas when I was browsing other forums. Quoting previous posts is a big one I think we need. Underlining option, alignment, and some other things. Here's a picture of it:

Runescape community has a really nice forum setup. If you want, I'll take some screenies for you and post em here.

Yeah that's pretty much it but of course it should be developed in a way that doesn't copy their exact specifications... also, as for the control panel, it's pretty much already like that but with the information on the left and the pop up message at the top for unread messages.

Yea its mainly just to get ideas on how to improve that system above. Maybe some different site skins would be cool?

You can change site skins in your preferences.

Um, most of the buttons you listed already exist. Underline is out because underlining on the web = links, and I don't think you should use it for anything else. Lists are out because I haven't thought of a good syntax for it. Justifications are out because I didn't think of adding them, but they'd produce problems of their own. Everything else is already in. Try actually looking at the buttons below the post content box, jeez.

As for all the control panel options and whatnot, that would all be nice but I really don't have the time right now to be adding something that complex. And I need to work on more important features, like signature image size limits. Sticking Out Tongue

Been meaning to fix that (but not really).

500x150 is the limit for almost every forum I've been on
