Can we have the ability to click on the little pic next to sub-forum names and have it mark it as read?

It used to do that, but for some reason it hasn't worked since the forum upgrade...

One small feature/fix I've been wanting to mention for a while was fixing the tab order on certain forms. I use the keyboard as much as possible, so I like to type a message, press Tab to move the focus to the "Post" or "Add Reply" button, and hit Space to click the button. (Much faster than clicking with the mouse :king:)

This works on almost all forms. The reputation form is one where it doesn't work:

I've also noticed that if one opens the Quick Reply box on a page, then tries to use the Fast Reply box to type out a reply, pressing Tab moves the focus to the button on the Quick Reply box (instead of the Fast Reply box).

EDIT: Odd... BBCode seems to be temporarily disabled. Mark that for another suggestion :o

When using quick edit, hitting tab takes you to the Show Smilies Pop Up Window link, it is relly annoying

Yep :king: Almost every time I use the Quick Edit box, I end up scrolling the page (because pressing Space when focused on a link scrolls the page down, at least in FF).

I've seen those chatboxes and shoutboxes on fora, and the only thing that can be found there is spam...

Yeah, plus they are usually impelemented in Java, and are clunky or make the page take forever to load. :)

Hmm... is there any reason the tags on this page aren't working? :)

Anyway, maybe reimplement that change from the old forum system so that the title would show

Topic Title -> WFG Forums, so that it's nicer on tabs and the taskbar.

How about a history forum? It could be combined with the Hall of Intellectuals.

How do you imagine this 'combine' to work, John? Make it a subforum of HOI or standalone?

I was meaning a subforum of HoI.

I would like to propose that the list of fonts we are able to post with in the WFG forums be increased with fonts relating to 0ad and TLA. For example, some fonts pertaining to the various civilizations in 0ad be included (Greek, Old Persian, Celtic/Germanic Runes, an informal Latin script or two, ect.), and for TLA there could be a few Tengwar fonts, and some Angerthas and Cirith fonts.

Well I think with almost 1000 members and this activity we could try to make it a separate forum yes? It appears to me that there aren't too many forums yet.

Hmm, maybe you could add a technology section or something, For tech stuff that isn't to do with computers

John, that will be some kind of problem, because in order for the fonts to be displayed properly we will need to have them installed on all forumers' computers, or else they won't see them. Of course, we would have an alternative "fall back" font if a particular font is missing, but at least not all forumers will have the same community experience anymore.

Personally I would like to keep it that way. If an Arda font is needed, and that is not too often the case, images would do the job awesomely, non?
