Related to here, but also a general vB3 question. I take it there's no way to have it that the buddy list appears in the UserCP on the left, as in vB2? I always found it handy to just have it there at a glance, rather than opening it in a new window.

I know, its just as I usually have my CP open on AN, it was handy to be able to see without a few extra clicks

I'll get used to it eventually, I've just got into the habit of glancing at that spot whenever I refresh the page.

yeah i'm use to the old method but forcing yourself to use quick links drop down menu each day makes it easier to adjust to

Updated Jan 12, 2004:
1. Add option to choose how you want your Postbit, user profile displayed within each threads' posts. Either at 'Top' (new method) or 'Left' old regular method. You can select it via User CP - Options panel http://animeboards.com/profile.php?do=editoptions under Thread Display Options

2. Custom avatar uploading re-enabled for users!

Regarding PMs

I used to be able to file away "Sent Items" into individual folders, but when in my "Sent Items" box the dropdown menu at the bottom does not have the "Move to folder..." option. Can that be changed?

- Google Adsense advertising added to site
- member signature is now only shown only in first post page of a thread rather than in every post on a page i.e. if you post 4 times in a row on 1st page of a thread, your sig will only be shown in the first post

I prefer to use Hybrid, as I do on AnimeOnDVD (although their implementation suffered with *their* software upgrade).

However, vB's implementation has quirks of its own which I'm not sure I'm ready to deal with just yet. e.g. Selecting a post from the thread tree will display different numbers of posts depending how deep in the hierarchy the selected post appears. So if you select a post at a leaf node, you don't see any other posts. I suppose it's a tradeoff - after all, you don't get this granularity at AnimeOnDVD. You either see 1 post, or the whole thread - which gets ugly for big threads. Also, there seems to be a default tree display depth of 5, where it really should be unlimited.

The topic review for a reply seems unnecessarily deep. Or maybe it cuts off at the user-selected posts per page setting

(BTW I'm not asking for any of this to be changed; I can live with any weird system)

By the way, I apparently can't make New Threads anymore; I get the following error:


Server Error
The following error occurred:
An IO failure occurred during response modification preview. Contact your system administrator. (ICAP_RESPMOD_IO_PREVIEW_FAIL)


Interestingly, I often get the same error if I try to click on "Go To Last Post" for a thread...

Win2K SP3, IE6.0SP1.

Actually, it might just be the work firewall/proxy cache. It's OK here at home at the moment.
