Here a list of requested features/improvements/fixes/updates.

Location edited or hidden

hiding 'whos online' like there was before
Thread leaders list (who posted in this thread)
hover over the icon to the left of the thread title and see how many posts you'd made in it
URL tags hints, giving hyperlinks texts manually is effort
shortcut of Alt+S




- new smiles (we want them, however, we need to focus on something more important)
- in reply form change "more smiles' to "less smiles"
- to make bold more bold
- reply in a separate window
- "Quote All" (Nested quotes) and "Quote Post" (Only quote the last post)
- Clicking on a users avatar link to their profile (just in case someone else need it =) )
- ability to know if someone mentioned or replied to you
- block users




- [DESIGN SUGGESTION] harder to differentiate the posts (https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1703982&goto=lastpost#534)
- [DESIGN SUGGESTION] additional two color schemes with color tweaks - UG Black High Contrast and UG Classic High Contrast

- change the reply box so that instead of just putting the replied to user's name in Bold, it also is a link to that post

Imagine I have pressed "Reply" to the post at the top there, from eGraham
- hovering over that link brought up a box showing the replied to post
for example, on a different forum you might be familiar with
Post with reply link to previous post






- Floating hover box showing replied to post



- way to indicate in posts whether a post has been Replied to with this button
and have links to the replies



- auto-updating threads

(Invalid img)

A tick-box at the bottom of the thread, this starts a timer;



Page refreshes every 15 seconds (or 10, 20 seconds, whatever)



New posts are shown under a bold red line;



The best part of this functionality, it displays a notification at the tab title about number of new posts;









1) Mac, Safari - should automatically drop you to reply ( when I hit quote or reply button under a post it DOES NOT scroll me to the end of the page so I can see the actual form. It looks like it just does nothing until you scroll down manually and see that the form is active now) https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1703982&page=10&per-page=40#396

2)


3)

4)
Also could you please use something like ISO/IEC 8859 standard to encoding because there's some characters I can't seem to use that are found in some European alphabets but not in the English one. Example:

? š ž (ch, sh, zh)
Also there's some character combinations that don't work, like
' : < ' and ' € ) '






We've checked this thread twice and hope everything in this list (let us know if we need to add something)

I know, there are a lot of words. Enjoy a pony

Why did we need a new thread for suggestions when people were already making suggestions in the other thread?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Repost from the other thread:

There used to be two little boxes at the bottom of posts: one at the bottom of the post itself, under the signature, that would be yellow if the poster was online and grey if they were not; and another one that was under the user info box to the left that would show if you have read the post or not.

The second one was very useful in quickly checking where you stopped reading a thread, especially in very long threads like the Gaming Thread. Can something like this be implemented again please, or at least a button to take us to the first unread post in that thread?

theogonia777 we checked all request from previous thread and fixed/updated some of them. This one is an official announcment (at least we planned it to be). Sorry, if it was confusing.

institutions, working to have read/unread back
anchor feature (to check where you stopped reading a thread) redirected to developers
#8
minor things:
- "logout" button at the top doesn't work from forum, have to click into profile to use it.
- old signatures not showing in new posts until you go to edit signature and re-apply it (mine wasn't showing on this post then I applied it with no changes and it shows now) - edit sig dissappears after I edit a post but reappears after a hard refresh (ctrl f5)
O.K.

By the way, I like the easy "reply" without quoting a particular post thing.

Wheeelp.

Embedded quotes are also neat.

Does it mark when you've edited a post...? Evidently not.

I have to admit...embedding still-images is a lot simpler now.

I wonder if my sig has fixed it yet. It's an animated gif, but it was appearing static in the old thread.

EDIT: Nope, still static.

Oh yeah, I would like to be able to access the options to change locations and user title. I can't find it anywhere.

For some reason I can't find a few threads I normally post on. I don't have them stickied or anything but I know they've been on the front page most of the day.

Namely the Football Thread, Euro Thread and Chat Thread.

inb4 they've been deleted due to being shit.

EDIT: Searched, found them and stickied but yeah, heads up that some threads seem to be disappearing for some reason.
My old signature was too long. Have a daisy.

I'm having the same with the whole FOTB subforum. I can get to it by searching for threads in the FOTB, but it's not listed in the usual place of the forum directory

Looks great though, I love it you guys have done awesome work
it's all just coming back

Thanks. I get you guys need feedback but I don't like offering up negative stuff as I'm sure there's a lot on your plate. Good work so far though

Whoa, new avatars went back to old ones. Is that just my view?

Invisible seems to not be a thing as of now, but the user count seems to be a lot less anyways haha
Also, no chance to see new posts because we only see the one screen instead of the old "go to advanced" new page refresh

Small suggestion: after "more smileys" is clicked and the scroll down menu appears, change the hyperlink from "more smileys" to "fewer smileys"?

Ok update on the sig thing, 250 characters is not enough when you use formatting.

I can't even reduce mine to just the 4 social networking links that I have in my sig (ie. removing the band names). That's ridiculous.

TO HAVE BIG AVATARS you need to upload pic again

- There is no "advanced search" for searching forums (eg set date limits, search by username, show post results only instead of thread results)
- I'm guessing dissappearing threads already being dealt with? I couldn't find comic book thread on forum page (https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1298011 ) but searching comic book it showed up in the results.
- No "automatically parse link in texts" enabled that would convert text with http:// or https:// into tagged clickable links could we get this back maybe?
O.K.

Going to change to 1000 characters WITH codes, will be enough?

I can't seem to find a way to edit the time-zone settings. It's gone 2pm here but the time is still in the morning?

Time for some copy/paste from the other thread

Kinda small thing but whatever.. can you get the bold to be.. bolder?

On threads you've read and not read I mean. It's really hard to see which is which on the dark style. I never realised how much I used that/noticed it before, but now I can't do it as much I see


Also what's going on with the timezones? Do I have to change it? It's currently shows posts at ~7am, it's 2pm here


Can we get this:



Down here:



to get back to the pit you have to scroll back to the top of the page currently?


Oh something else: hovering over thread titles does nothing now. Which is horrifying if you've spent more than a day browsing this forum.

New avatar settings mean new Phil Jones avatar.

Hopefully.
