seventhing it even tho i was the one to second it  ::)

m2/admin... u out there?

this seems like a genuinely awesome idea and no one is responding... man i wish I had a smiley that cried, but coz its the @u2 forums we dont have good forums.

wait, what's that? @u2 has a new forum? new smileys? SWEET

 :'(

We're out here and keeping up with things.  We are collecting the ideas as a group and we'll take a look at them.  We won't be jumping into every thread to respond to them right away.   :)

I think it's a cool idea, but I don't know what this forum software is capable of and what it's not. It's open source software, so there's a chance someone else (a regular Joe Blow) has written some kind of plugin that expands profiles ... but I'd have to find that plugin, hope it's not vulnerable to being hacked, figure out how to install and activate it, etc. :)

I think I'm gonna combine this thread in with the Feature Requests thread so we keep everything together.

I would love two sections: one where we can share U2 stuff like photos, bootlegs, videos, etc, and another one when we can buy and sell U2 memorabilia and stuff.

Thanks!

Hi ChoriU2 -- thanks for the idea, but we really want the forum to be about conversations and chat. We don't want it to become a marketplace or the classifieds or anything like that. Plus, then we'd have to deal with complaints about bad sellers, should we hunt them down, ban them, etc., etc. Just doesn't seem worth the headache.

If you're looking to buy and sell merchandise, I'd suggest the CollectU2 list on Yahoo Groups. Lots of collectors on there.

The "previous" and "next" buttons on the bottom right are confusing to me (maybe it's just me). 

Yeah, they were to me, too. I'm pretty sure I can remove them in the admin. You guys want me to, or have you gotten used to it?

Does the skin have to stay grey, black and blue? Can we change it to pink and yellow and purple if we wanted to?  ;D

I think there's a way to let users change the "skin," but the problem becomes that we then have to support lots of different designs.

User: "Matt, we can't find such-and-such feature in the new skin we just picked. Can you help?"

Me: "You're crazy if you think I'm changing my skin to the Hello Kitty theme so I can find it for you!"  :)

Also, one other thing...
I don't think people will really find this an issue, but it's just something I thought might would be better.
Once you have made a post that it takes you back to the thread and you can see your post in relation to others. I know you can see this when you are writing, but if there is something that you have forgotten to mention or something...

I dunno probably just stupid, but yer...

I'm pretty sure you can change that in your profile. I know as soon as I post this message, I'm sent to the end of the thread where my post is. Is that what you want it to do? I think you can set that yourself.

I suppose we could have several more smilies?  ;)

I think there's a way for us to add new smiley sets to the options. Don't know where to find them or how to do it, but we'll look into it at some point.

I thought I'd mentioned this elsewhere but I didn't see it so I'll say it (again?).

A link back to the @u2 home page.  Or does this already exist and I'm an idiot.

Hey! I was thinking that we could have a games thread? Kinda like the one on this meaaage board:

I can start a few off, as thats all I did my my crazy message board days  :P ::) :P I think it is a good idea because it is fun and it gives people (like me) who are bored something to do and rack up their posts!

Oh and that board above has been dead for a loooooooong time  :'( I used to enjoy it there
