    It would be great to see who's the thread creator/OP BEFORE entering the thread. I got no time to waste :D
    Oh well.

    Those yellow page buttons with white text have got to go! I'm blind!

    And the "quoted text" needs to be distinguishable from the poster's reply. I can't tell who is saying what.

    Agree. It's like looking directly at the sun.

    Another go...

    cough cough pick me


    I thought this was how the forums were supposed to look and I loved it. So then I spent a little bit trying to figure out how to make mine not look like total crap.

    edit:

    Can I force all text the same size? Beyond annoying.

    Also:

    1) Edit box too small
    2) Image is shown instead of link to image when editing. Please fix if possible :(

    Whos online - http://vanillaforums.org/addon/onlinenow-plugin

    Besides all the other comments above, and all the ones yet to be posted, Devs, Moderators, Military members, Map Editors,etc. need to have some type of color-coded name under their avatar to distinguish themselves from all the other clowns on here.

    BTW, you are the US ARMY. There is nothing wrong with a camo background and shades of our favorite US Army color -- green!

    Thanks Vapor, I have actually looked at most of these and many of them are out dated and/or broken. I have fixed quite a few of the plugins that we find useful and I will continue to evaluate plugins and add to what we have as I can find time to go through the plugins and fix and update them. I will double check these against my list and see if any of them our new to me.

    Line break issue is still here. Its a simple css fix.

    grrrr

    Things that come to mind from the old forum that seem to be missing are:

    - A button that takes you straight to the latest comment in a thread.

    - Post preview, before actually posting.

    - Who's online.

    TheBaDaBing!

    We have not uploaded any css specific fixes yet.

    Just to make sure we are on the same page here let me ask you a few explorative questions. 
    What specifically is the line break issues to you? 
    what browser are you using that you see it in? 
    Are you seeing it in all post or just the post that were made before we got the right editor turned on?

    This is a test post and I want to make sure I am seeing the same thing you are.

    Thanks Hilabuster, good to see that progress is being made. Keep up the good work!
