    I've got a couple suggestions for the forum portion of this site.

    First is the ability to see past posts. If there are multiple questions and you try to answer them all, it gets difficult sometimes to remember exactly what the asker wanted.

    The second is having some type of limited signature. I'm not talking being able to have a huge banner ad, or listing every modification that you've done to your ride(s). What I'm talking about is something no more than 3 lines, that gives just a tad bit more information (like first name perhaps) than just your screen name. For example, on other forums my signature is:

    Quote:
    "Sam

    Someday it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine."


    It's just a thought, and would be a neat thing to have.

    You should be able to view past posts? Maybe I'm not understanding the concern? All posts, past and present, are viewable and searchable.

    As for signature, yeah there is no limit to what goes in there. We figure to each their own. If they want a big ugly sig, then so be it. Maybe to compliment this, we could put a profile summary overlay on the screen when you mouse over someone's profile picture. That idea is on our list of things to look at.
     

     

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    I think what he's getting at is a way to quickly view a member's past posts, like "view all of Toicontien's posts"? Another feature I think we're missing is a central forum control panel-type page that lists which topics you're currently subscribed to and which have new posts. Otherwise, you can use the search box located on the right side of the group logo box.

    Sorry, I didn't clarify...had it right in my mind...

    I mean when responding...(as I am now) being able to see the posts in the related thread would help address the issue(s), thoughts, etc that a person might want to respond to.

    So basically as I type this, I'd like to be able to refer back to what others have posted before without using the "back arrow" or opening a second window.

    We also are going to add the previous topic posts to the reply form. It's on our list of additions.
