Personally, as I participate in buying and selling in the KSA's, I actually like seeing when there are new bids and always open the auctions after seeing that there is a new post.


May be "View New Posts" could become configurable, to include or exclude certain forums.

Now that would be great! If there was a way to exclude political discussions from popping up in view new posts I'd be happy :-)

BTW, there's a big button in the left panel that if you click seems to show you just the kitchen sink auctions. Even show you the suitable subject lines so that you see each thread is what item being auctioned.

Just to make sure I'm not misunderstood. Even with no more improvements, this website is already better than 99.9% of websites on the whole WWW!

when posting in a thread says "Post"
and when sending a PM it says "Send PM"
or something like that

this might help with people thinking they are sending a PM and end up posting in thread by accident, since they both say Submit.

Thanks


LoL. Been there. :oops:

I think I will only make this mistake once.

Thanks for the help fixing it.

Wish we could have a B/S/T for junk silver so if your looking for 999 you dont have to go through all the 90% and vice versa.
Just a thought

+1

This is something I've dreamed about for a long time. I have more than 10,000 saved messages and they only go back about 2 years.

As far as I know, there is no off-the-shelf solution, so a custom search would need to be built. I believe there's a way to integrate Google into the site but they would want database access, and that's not going to happen. Privacy and data integrity are our top priorities.

If we can find a reasonable solution for PM search, it will be the next thing we spend money on.

Just saying, as a new member reading through this, I can appreciate all of the suggestions made and then seeing it all here on the site. Tickers, new posts link, simplification of information/navigation. It is cool to see how this site developed. It is also cool to see a group take suggestions and actually implement them. It shows the commitment and passion for this hobby/addiction. I don't have any suggestions that are worthwhile, but I can say that I, for one, appreciate the effort put into this forum. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
