I love this place, even though I tend to take liberties with the PG rating.  An ignore feature would be really nice though.

Hi, I don't know if this has been asked before, but the thread is too long to read it all...  :D

Is it complicated to add a "LIKE" button on every comment?
Sometimes you read something brilliant, but you have nothing to "add",
you just want to express how much you liked it... Could it be?

Also, a "DON'T LIKE" button would be interesting ...  :D

I think Facebook has taken care of that enough, don't you think? 

I would like to suggest different skins or themes for the overall forum if it is feasible. Maybe from different colors? Black, multicolored, and the traditional style?

Many thanks in advance.

i think that's a good idea because it will show who agrees and who doesn't

i don't think it'll be as annoying as facebook to be honest ;D

I think the goal here is to draw people into the conversations that they are interested in joining. Personally, I have no use for "like" and "dislike" buttons because they don't add to the conversation in any way.

I'm with you on that one Joe.

Now, about those PM limits any way we could get those upped a bit? I get why they are needed, but can we increase the number per hour?

The new forum doesn't have the option to reply to all when sending personal messages. Can we get that back or is it an anti-spam feature?

Strange. My inbox has that feature.

How about a mobile version? Maybe you could make the app like the site? Or at least the forum tab on the app? That tab doesn't really do any good since it only shows replies pretty much; you don't even know what they're talking about.

The forum seems to work perfectly fine for me on my iPhone. Is there something that's not working on your mobile device? I'm just going to forum.atu2.com in the browser and it's great.

The iPhone/Android app is what it is and won't change in the future. Here's why: Developing good apps is really expensive, like on the order of 5-figures. Needless to say, we don't have that money. About 5-10 readers per year ever make a donation via the Paypal button on the site and we have no ads, no other income. So getting a cool, world-class app just isn't gonna happen when your annual income is about $200.

Now, if more of you want to contribute on a regular basis, or if we decide to put ads on the site (and our readers accept them), then maybe we have some flexibility to do some cool things that require money. But I doubt that's gonna happen anytime soon. We've talked about putting ads here in the forum, and we may do that in the future, but it's not been a high priority.

So that's where we are. Trust me ... our internal wish list is a mile longer than anything that's been mentioned here, but we really can't do much as a non-monetized website.

It would be in Maui, but otherwise correct. :-)
