Thanks for getting rid of the porno post yesterday.  You guys are fast!  I don't expect the forum to be G-rated, but my kids like to come here from time to time to talk about the band.  Anyway, thanks for being so responsive.

I am responding to this rather late but I just noticed it.  A more detailed profile would be really nice. Each member can choose if they want to share more info. or not.  It would be a nice feature.  m2 and moderators, thank you so much for a great forum.  The other U2 forums are just not nearly as nice.

We do our best and we appreciate when posts that are out of line are brought to our attention via the Report to Moderator option as that helps us see it faster.

We are currently looking into reasonable options to cut down on the spam we do get.

Perhaps someone mentioned this one already.

Is there a way to have an option with quoting, where you can either quote the post with all of the quotes in it, or quote just the post. Did I make it confusing enough?  ???

Well, basically, when I quote someone, more often than not I want to quote only the line of the person posting, not all the quotes they included in their post. Some posts have a whole pyramid of quotes and it looks a little confusing.

As I did here, you merely need to go in and edit what you would like quoted from the reply you are quoting from.

Yeah,  I do that too, but in this modern day and age, when there is a button for everything, I was just hoping there can be a simpler way than editing other comments. I guess I'm lazy.  ;)

Don't know if this will help or work, and I know nothing about computers basically but to solve the spam problems you could get a CAPTCHA maybe?

Surely even simpler is to have a box with "tick this box if human" next to it; tends to work surprisingly well. Partly because I find CAPTCHAs severely annoying.

Also, would longer commentaries and opinions simply go in the "The Music" section, or could there be a separate section for that ("Reviews and Comments", or something like that)?

I suggest we need a multi-quote feature if available, so that people can quote multiple posts and reply to them in only one.

Thoughts?

Don't think it's available, but we'll look for that capability. Probably best to plan on doing it manually for now.

Thanks for asking!  I don't know if EVERYTHING on here will be archived, or if some of it will go away, but I would like to be able to be sure that I can go back and read some of the more thoughtful threads even when they die.  Is that already possible, and if not, could it be?  Even if we just had the function to save it on our computers as an .html file before it was going to expire, that would be fine.

Also, I think it would be cool to have an open field in the profile so we could fill in whatever bio info we wish.

Third, is there a way to show more of the little page numbers.  Sometimes I know I want to go ten pages back, and I have to keep jumping back three pages at at time.

Thanks again!
