Why don't you use the "Xenforo" format for this forum?

Or would that cost too much?

A lot of the football (soccer) forums use that format, with a higher restriction on word and letter counts. Also, emoticons can be used subject to what you want included.

Thanks Ian - we're certainly hoping to make posts look a little nicer / feel a little more flexible.

Other suggestions welcome!

There always seems to be 3/4 new threads on a Monday morning that a newbie tried to post over the weekend. Can you change that waiting time/approval process so that they can post over the weekend.

Reset or change or require activity for the top 10 posters. How many of them have posted over the last year but we see their names every time we log in, I know it is historical but they have moved on.

When someone uses a blog there seems to be a double post which is annoying clutter

Categories- Can you update the categories or let us make our own categories and display them alongside the title. So at glance value I can see what the thread is about or even add some sign to show NEW or HOT. The glance value of the forum isn't great.

Thankyou for asking for our suggestions

Thanks Rewt - we'll definitely pass these on. And yes, the blog section and 'hall of fame' are likely to be refreshed as part of this.

Only just saw this and might be too late! Can the private messages bit be changed? I always have too delete a conversation / message before I can send / receive one, as the limit of 50 is quite low. Also it is just quite a cumbersome private message interface. Any way it could be improved would be great!
