I have become a big fan of forums  while I use to love newsgroups.  But I am not sure I like this interface as much as vBulletin which is on of my favorites.  Why did you go with this interface?

If I can jump in, Bob mentioned in another thread that they chose this system, in part, because they could integrate the forum login with the UID/login info already associated with each person's Libronix ID

That's understandable. I can get used to it, but we all have our prefs.

David Ladiges:
The 10 hour limit may change - I notice most of my typos in emails immediately after hitting send so a 10 minute edit window would be plenty for me!

David, if you are a Logos employee it would help if that fact was displayed (also for people I already know, because others may not!).

One hour would do for me as I made 6 edits of one post at roughly ten-minute intervals!!

Looks like they are using Community Server, http://communityserver.com/

That would be a useful feature!  I'll add that to my list of things to check on.

I prefer the web forum.  Hope all is well with you Bob.  Say "Hi" to the family for me!

Clinton Tomhas said: The "recent topics" listing on the first page - is there a way to indicate which forum the post is from.

 

I too hate this.  Could you maybe put this off to the side or below?  Or give me an option to remove it altogether?

OK I see it.  In case someone else was trying to figure out how to get the quotation in the body of your post you have to hit the reply button above the post and not the quick reply below it.  Hitting the quick reply below will not give you the option to quote the previous post's text.

Many thanks for making forums available. Forums are my preference.

And may a suggest a darker green for those links that are light green? Tough to make them out but could be my aging eyes.

The bright background will also age one's eyes! Some options for colour choice would be great.

We have a code blue in Newsgroups.  No one has posted today!  Get the paddles -- clear!

Please change your style sheet(s) such that visited links are a different color than unvisited links. In fact, it would be nice if you changed the link colors on hover as well (to help minimize finger errors).

I notice that you've done this with the main thread links in the forum categories. So either you responded to my request or it was like that before and I just didn't notice. If the former than thankyou for your prompt attention. If the later then no matter, it's not a demand but I'm glad it's done.

Anyway, could you now please do the same thing with the "Last Post" links? That way the user's browser keeps track and gives him/her a quick visual clue of which posts are new and which have already been read. I know you have an "Unread Post" function on your main page and I applaud that effort but I personally find it a little awkward and prefer just to browse the categories the way I've become used to in other forums. I'm sure there must be some others out there who feel the same way. Visual clues in the links themselves would be very helpful.
