    In order to better track things that are wrong with the forums or feature requests for future functionality, I've setup a Trello board. Trello is what I use to manage what I'm doing for the non-public Beyond3D things, so it has benefits for me in a couple of areas, as a means to track the public issues:

    a) it's the tool I use anyway for my task tracking
    b) it allows you to vote up things you'd like me to fix, add, change or remove, which is something the forum software can't easily do

    https://trello.com/b/y88evYko/beyond3d-forums

    If you have something to report and want to add it to the Trello, leave me your email address in a PM and I'll invite you to the board. Sorry it's not as easy as posting here with an issue, but it helps me out and keeps everything in one place.

    for a feature, i think a preview -> post reply workflow would be good.
    I do find myself, and a couple others, who will post a reply, read their own reply, realize they made some typo, or realized it was unclear, and go back and edit it.

    I think if it went from posting -> preview -> reply, would probably lower the instances of that happening. You'd probably opt in if you're interested in that type of thing.
    But I think it would be useful on this board, the karma/rep on this board is largely based on the quality of your post/knowledge of the subject, this feature would align with that (for individual who care to make quality posts)

    Can Twitter functionality be added, so that when you post a link to tweet, it looks the same as on Twitter? You know what I mean probably.

    I get the second one now in Firefox and I rather prefer the first one. It's much more orderly to my eye, the bottom one is like a shotgun blast of forums in front of me.

    How do I make it like the top one again?

    Is anybody else experiencing issues using Edge? I'll get either a "Hmmmm we can't seem to connect to that page" error, or a "database connection error" about 5-6 times before it will actually connect. This doesn't seem to occur in Chrome.

    Depends on the time of day. The site has some tasks scheduled such as DB backups that might cause such things. It isn't a number of times to retry but by the time you try it in Chrome the task is done so it would have worked in Edge too.

    The forums go down for 10-12 mins every day at 2am CEST, to perform a backup. Otherwise the forums should be fully available with no downtime (unless mentioned in this subforum when I'm doing maintenance).

    Why is there no "mark forums as read" option? Or I can't find it.


    Oh there is, in the upper left corner, didn't look there. Sorry.

    Has anyone suggested a Dark theme that displays the forum front page like the Default theme does? Dark Default? ;)
