If you find something that you are not able to do, that you could on RB please post in here and let me know. Likewise, I am still playing with the permissions, so if you find that you can do something that you shouldn't be able to do, let me know that as well :P

CB, now you know what I go through about remembering things. :lol:
On the Board Index page there is a link to View Unread Posts and View New Posts that is real handy. Is there a way to also put the Mark Forums Read button on the pages that those two buttons take you to so you don't have to navigate back to the Board Index page?

I second the usefulness of View Unread Posts - I'm using it all the time!

Something else that would be helpful like it was at the old RB was on the Board Index page when you log in if there were no unread posts for you it would say so. Here it says 'View unread posts' whether you have any or not. Could we get this board to signify that you have no unread posts on the Board Index page like at the old RB?

Huh? Huh? Can we? Can we? Pleeeeeaaase! :mrgreen:

I have a question - the subscription box is always ticked on the threads I've posted in but I haven't received any email notifications when new posts came. Will that be coming along eventually or is there a new system now? And will we be able to have avatars? Okay, that was two questions. :oops:

:lol: One question has been answered - I'm getting notification. I'll just quietly wait for the avatar issue to be resolved.

It says avatars are disabled
All that is gold does not glitter; Not all those who wander are lost.
The old that is strong does not whither; deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken; a light from the shadows shall spring.
Renewed shall be blade that was broken; the crownless again shall be King."

The message on the avatar upload page reads:
The avatar functionality is currently disabled

Well yeah that would be a problem :lol: Lemme fiddle.

Ed: Done. I'm out of practice on avatar sizing so if it's set too small let me know.

This is the message I got when I tried to load the same avatar that I had on the old RB.

The submitted avatar is 115 pixels wide and 100 pixels high. Avatars must be at least 20 pixels wide and 20 pixels high, but no larger than 100 pixels wide and 100 pixels high.
Staring at the blank page before you, open up the dirty window, let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find. Today is where your book begins, the rest is still UNWRITTEN...

My old avatar was 121 x 70 and is too big for here too. Cassie, would you be able to make the allowance a little bigger? Pretty please? :)

*raises hand*
I have a request.

Is there a way that when we're in a sub-forum, we can have the overall forum name display above it somehow? Because for instance, when I click on "movies" and get the sub-forums, I see one called Tolkien - but there's also one called Tolkien in the Books section. If I'm having a stupid brain day (or am not paying attention), that could lead to a moment of confusion or posting in the wrong place.
Maybe this won't be an issue once we have more creative forum names... but still it seems it might be helpful.

I've attached a pic to show what I mean...

"The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall, nations perish, civilizations grow old and die out, and after an era of darkness new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead."
