Weird user error, but nothing is wrong with the quote system.

Currently by design. We're just decluttering them from the main threads.

The main page could use a bit less cluttering. Heres my suggestions:

Make the changing image all the way across
Move the games/social buttons down to where the Detour add is, and remove the add
Make it so every news piece has an image to go along with it and is seen in the preview (?)
If possible, I suggest adding TDL blog posts into the main feed. Not everyone checks TDL site often.
Remove the buy detour, community forums, and work at Sandswept buttons.

Another non-main page suggestion is make the nav-bar spread out evenly across the top

Finally, I know im being picky, but for the forums that got new banners, make the fade to black to the edges, not the center. Currently it doesn't flow.
Also with banners, make the text solid. The transparency doesn't add any affect IMO, and is more annoying and looks unclean.

*edit: you could also move the Sandswept logo at the top down into the Nav Bar and move everything left. That would make it all align pretty good IMO.

Removed useless and redundant footer links. Press F5 just in case they're not showing up.

Sort of. You guys suggest a lot of stuff we're already thinking, but it generally confirms our ideas -- or at least merits testing them out. But yes, I do get new ideas from your suggestions. Keep them coming. :)

New suggestion:

Do a bar that always stays at the top, even when you scroll down.

Rooster teeths site is a good example

Move the sandswept logo to the left side of Games. Move the rest of the account bar to the right, and put Sandswept and TDl site links to the left.

We actually messed around with that and it didn't look very good. I will re-consider it later with some testing.

Also, Sandswept logo is not moving from the top bar.

Alright

Also, Search Forums is not on the main page. Seems like it just stay in its spot on every page.

Moving top bar would be quite annoying thing... Maybe a side bar that is out of the way that stays?

Interesting concept. Zag should maybe experiment.

Yep, it's not supposed to be that long and the limits I set are apparently not working. Make it shorter if you want it to show up in the profile, I'm not changing it. We don't want super huge sigs.

For some reasons, when I was on an Ipad, Waddles post went far out right and were they were suppose to be was just a big gray box.

There's also a line limit and a link limit, but they appear to not be working. I will look into it.
