Met and Tiz, I am really digging the new forum set up. I have been using it quite a bit today. I do have a question/suggestion.

I was wondering if the forum pages/posts can be set up with a "reply" button? the "quote" button is cool because it brings down the original comment you are replying too and places it inside YOUR comment … but then it places the reply at the the bottom of the page, rather than under the original comment you are posting to. This just seems odd to me. It makes it kinda tough to comment on someone else's suggestion/comment and have it be in the same area to see the "chain of chat" or for that person to come back and reply again. Does that make any sense?? Laugh

For example. I started a thread on "what would you like to see released from cars 2." I have had a few folks post on it, and I went back to reply to their comments … it adds the reply at the bottom, instead of ON the comment I replied to. The regular Take 5 Posts chain the messages together … and I think that format is great for chat/convo on the threads. Not sure if it is possible, and maybe I am the only one that thinks this, but I think it would be a nice tweek.

Thanks again for all you do!! 😀

hey guys – Was a little iffy about this whole forum stuff when u all left for the show… Quite easy to get a handle on it though…

Would love to be able to sort the forums by "date created". That way they are logged in a way that I can view ALL the forums and keep them in order without having to check each sub-section…

Other thatn that – Loved it – Loved all the pics – loved that u guys had a great time in the SD area!

As a plug in, there are not a lot of options and there's no option on the REPLY button but I wonder what the "STICKY" Button does?

Sticky puts the topic way up top so it gets more attention and it doesn't get bumped down the list like a normal topic does when new topics are created.

Is the sticky choice available to everyone? Or is that an admin choice?

So, I guess it's you & Jestrjef to see who reaches the next "user nickname" level? 🙂 And impressively, both your posts are not random fillers. 🙂

We try to keep it real … all metal, less plastic!! LOL Are we going to get a bar graph on the side margin so we can see the "Race to the TOP" action LIVE??? Laugh

Maybe instead of counting "random filler" comments, we should count how many topics you start with at least 5 replies? That would be a cool race. 😎

Pretty sure that's an Admin only option. Maybe Moderators too?

We gotta keep the board moving and show the 'Rookies' how it's done! Laugh
