Waddlesticks, how on earth did you notice that, wow. And Zag, loving everything done to the forum now, but the sticky's and hot threads seem a bit awkward IMNSHO.

The yellow highlighted words in search is annoying.
You really can't see the text yellow on white.

How about a bit more contrasting color instead for the "highlight color?"
Or instead of a highlight, just change the text color for that word. From white to Green.
.
Since you can't really use red \ gold \ blue since those are dev \ admin \ mod colors.

@Fred I think the pinned topics are fine for now, much more though and it would be overcrowded. Maybe put pinned topics on the side of the screen instead of at the top. (Zag, you know where im coming from with this.)

If you go to send pm, and find user, its completely broken right now. You cant find anyone.

Works for me as well. Maybe something to do with your cache/cookies/internet data?

Very snazzy observation.


Hey Zag... Will there by any chance something to show that a user has 'edited' his post?

Yeah, originally removed the functionality because it was directly part of the text on the post (and could be edited, changed, etc.). I haven't gotten around to adding it back in in such a way that it can't be removed. I need to do some research to figure that one out.

Update: New STICKY, MOVED, and HOT topic icons. (probably temporary) Press F5 to see them when you see a hot/sticky topic

Sweet!

Also when I received a message, when I'm at the www.sandswept.net/ page it stays its golden/yellow colour. Everywhere else it highlights red.

Yes, it has to do with the front page using different software than the forum. I can't determine the state of your PM box in the same way. It's a known issue, but not a big one. Might get fixed someday. (Like when we overhaul the entire site, which is not in the foreseeable future.)

I like the stickies and the hot topics much better, forum=epic^awesome. I honestly don't think the look needs to be changed anymore.

I think the Hot topics should have a little flame on them. Visual > Words

Hot topics now require 80 posts, up from 60.

Admittedly no one has really noticed yet, but are you sure we should be allowed custom titles? Oh well, thanks for upping the 'Hot' requirement, it seemed like every thread was hot.

We're allowed custom titles?

And there should be something even higher than a hot topic. How about an inferno, say when a post gets 500+ comments.

Custom titles are usually done by individual or group.
More then likely its set for Freds Group.

So all those people in Mod \ Staff have the option of setting their own custom titles.
For the rest of us, I don't think its available
That or I grossly missed it

Tried out a new account, yeah, it's not a general public kind of deal, sorry.

And as to the inferno idea, eh. One thing I do think that should be added is a date recognition system that once a Hot topic has not been posted in for 7 days it is no longer hot (As it has no activity).

This is not intended. Is it just for moderators, or can everyone do it? I'll look into it.

/me checks Zag's profile, sees ban button.
It's on. I actually like the title I have though, so no biggy. One odd thing is, if you look in your profile, usually your sig is cut in half, think it might be possible to create a scroll button or so, like view my profile and you will see what I mean.
