    A mod with only 63 stars? Yeah, right.

    Just shows I'm fair and balanced.

    Suggestion: When I'm on the 'new posts' page, is it possible to show which forum each thread is posted in?

    Ban function seems to work fine, CW. Glad I could test it out for you.

    People, don't get banned on this new site. If the last site was like being in regular jail, getting banned now is like being in a supermax. Happy to be the last person banned on the old site :D.

    It's a great update. Love that it works on mobile. Only feedback is - A lot of black and gold, and too many "Like" options on posts.

    How do you delete a post?

    Can we limit some of the functions for new posters? I don't want trolls to sign up and click a bunch of nonsense "dislikes." Maybe unlock some of the functions only after they meet some length of time or number of posts.

    Also, can we create a Troll Team that has the authority to label users as trolls? Too often the trolls get treated like serious posters. Let's identify them as what they are. The Troll Team would be posters recognized by the Mods as trustworthy. Or maybe they even have to nominate them to the Mods (thought I'm trying to avoid giving the Mods more work).

    It does for me on the main forum page, or 'recent posts', I believe. Not on the 'new posts' page, though.

    Let's see if I can attach my screenshot to show what I mean...

    Nope. Image button only lets you enter a URL, 'Upload a file' link does nothing, and 'more options' link just posts the reply.

    ETA: Twice now that I have used the darker 'submit reply' button to make my post, it takes me to a blank white screen. If I hit F5 everything goes back to normal & my new post is there.

    So, what do we call all these things (like, dislike, agree, disagree, informative, etc.)? There has to be a name for the category.

    Scroll up when it does that. It's an ad. CF gotta make its cash money, homes.

    As a member of the newly formed Troll Team, I would like to identify Cycsk as a potential troll.

    So... a minor nitpick.

    When you scroll down on the desktop site, the nav bar turns black. thus with the CF logo, everything is black\gold. Looks hawkeye-ish.

    I can't post using Dolphin browser for iPad and android. I can't stand Chrome, very inefficient. Any idea why it won't let me reply using a certain browser? Everything else works fine, that I know of.
    I try to click on space to write, nothing happens. Something in the setting I can change?
