    Just to keep you guys up to date on the ideas flowing around here.

    I do think that removing the post count from view is the easiest way to go on that question, I am going to figure out how that is done.

    -Its already gone if you search the member list.

    -Will changed the quick reply box to be active all the time so you can just click in it and post

    -A "mentor" program is being developed to handle the arrival of new people so they feel comfortable.

    Me too Sarah, I am starting to find it very easy to use.

    Wanted to let you guys know--the easiest solution to the "post count" problem is to make it so posting in off topic forums does not count toward a users post count.

    That has now been done in

    I am giving Chris' suggestion a try on how the forums read the database so we can have accurate reflection of "read threads"

    If the all look unread, that is probably why. Use the "forum options" drop down to mark all the threads as "read" and we'll see what happens next.

    I have upped the avatar settings to 100x100 pixels.

    The total size is maxed at 19k

    (that could be larger, I wasn't sure if it was a pretty good size, seemed like it.)

    I actually really like the smaller Av size. It makes the boards look more streamlined.

    Well...it was only 80x80 before so it won't be that big of a difference. But I agree, I like the av kind of out of the way of the post.

    Hopefully its the best of both worlds.

    Well, as long as they don't end up like 500X500, I think it's OK. BeastToast has a good Av size, too.

    I like the 100x100 ava size... Its the standard size for the animated ava's. Its hard for some people to change the size of those without losing the animation.

    this quick post thingy rocks too!!!!

    Haven't animated avs been deemed verboten, though?

    Yeah, that's right, I'm a FAQ-readin' nerd.

    Another main focus for the site was to make it so it would load easily for people. That's been a big complaint I have seen sometimes.

    I have gone ahead and opened a few of the forums on the board. We have a nice broad base and I wouldn't mind the board looking like it had been populated a bit when we open.

    This forum will stay for ideas and comments we would rather stay among the small group we have established (not too small anymore )

    Here are the open ones:

    The Way Station--I am going to move "introduce yourself" there.

    Path of the Beam--This thread is going there. Also I believe there will be a bunch of new news in the near future. We can also start the idea development for welcome and information threads.

    The Dixie Pig--Some off topic

    Fedic Station--SpiderMan three is out

    Blue Heaven--some more off topic

    The idea is to establish some foundation threads and try to make the board looked "lived in" a bit. As time goes on, we can begin opening the reread forums to establish what we are going to do there

    And the copy of The Dark Tower Concordance my parents got me includes a reading group guide for the entire series!!
