I think he means from the whole forums so that they don't bother him.

Could you make it so when you quote a message, it gets addressed to the person you're talking with, and not to the person who sent the original message? I regularly quote myself in Battlestar PM's, and it puts me as recipient. I've had a lot of messages sent to myself instead of the player.

I suggest we cease celebrating Christmas soon. Preferably before Easter.

E: vvvvv Quite right!

Ability to disable graphical smileys is done

Also the bugs with the spoiler tag are fixed and so that is actually usable now

Ooo I have an idea. Once you hit 1500 posts you get the "deity" title which right now is the Legifer icon, but you should be able to pick which deity icon you use

Sounds great. I wonder if we can set up some sort of formalised badge system for people who have peer-reviewed wins in IVAN 0.50 and IVAN CVS?

On a bright day, the black text is sometimes a bit hard to read against the grey background (IVANBlack). White / light grey text in the quick reply box and in signatures is easy to read, so if you could change the color to a light one, or tweak the background color to increase the contrast or something? Just a thought.

Hmm.. Yeah it was really hard to come up with the colors since everything was a shade of gray. I think all white might look awful though. I will try playing with it... eventually

Yeah, I too found it really hard when I played with the themes. How about you fiddle with the background color instead - make it a little lighter? And that yellow you used in the links looks fabulous. Something like that, perhaps?

Or you could switch the lighter gray in "subheading" with the darker gray in "body". They might both get a little clearer.

Doesn't look too bad:

That's a good point. I guess light gray with white text + dark gray with black text doesn't really make sense.

Okay, made that change. Thoughts? (I have to fix the user menu button)

It looks about right, but (here I go again) I don't really know about the black text/white sig. Maybe a dark grey signature?

Much easier to read, thanks! I agree with EagleV about the signatures.

Hi Cap. Sometimes I access the site via a mobile device. The posts are often quite lengthy. Is there a way of getting to the top of the page quickly without scrolling like a madman?

Certain mobile browsers have this function built in if you tap the status bar at the top of the screen, but a "go to top" button next to each post could be useful.

I've also noticed that, when logging in from mobile, if you enter the wrong info the "access denied" popup actually blocks the username/password fields, which is a bit of a pain.
