This has probably been said before, but a button to 'like' a post would be nice.

That'd kill a lot of interaction.

Why this over quoting and saying "nice"?

don't out me like that

got to be top 10 some way

More like a dislike button is needed for Microsoft Windows posts.

I thought we weren't supposed to +1 things (except for KoTM).
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I noticed that Yahoo seems to be the same color as the note people get when muted, is it possible to change that?

Or are we trying to limit the number of them that are available.

Fair enough.

 I would like to see the GB topics put into two parts;
1) active GB's > those that you can still join, are still active
2) production GB's > those where the actual GB stage is completed and have moved on to the production stage.

Reason; when I look through the GB topic looking for something cool 9 out of 10 times when I find something it's already completed and in the production stage.

This would mean that the IC/GB topics would be devided into 3 sections instead of 2 obviously.

Agree, have had the same problem when looking for something nice to buy. As soon as the GB closes move it to a different section so people won't get their hopes up. Threads are open for months after the GB closes with the current system and it makes thing pretty confusing at times.

So the OP just needs to update the thread Title to reflect the current situation

Well yes and no :P that would be the easy option but Iím lazy and would like to not have to go over 3 pages of GB topic titels to see which one is still active :P

Having that said, having ACTIVE in the titel (first word of the titel) would help a lot :P

I'm not sure I follow. Usually the organizer of the GB changes either the first post or a reserved post to reflect the current state of the GB (often times the title is changed to reflect any GB changes).

editt - Ah, I see the GB/pre-orders rules have changed. I guess this issue was bigger than I thought.

Yeah I guess so. From the top 20 GB topics at this very moment, 7 donít have a clear title stating the state theyíre in.

I've been thinking about this for awhile. Things kinda work ok around here so I haven't bothered to write it up. I do think it could be better though... my proposal would be to reduce the number of forums which would increase visibility and activity within a forum subject. It also allows good threads to not be missed because they're in a forum that most people don't visit:

Great Finds -> dont see a need for this
Member Auction Links -> realistically could just be part of regular classifieds ads
Reviews -> Should be posted in the section for what you're reviewing. Perhaps with a [REVIEW] prefix?
Ergonomics -> Post in the keyboards forum.
Other Geeky Stuff -> Its off topic.

I also have thought about the idea that we should do a separate for-sale and wanted forums to make it easier to sell through GH. Just being able to go into a forum and search for a term and get hits on people that are selling it vs. want it might make it a more popular place for people to post their stuff.


Anyway, just throwing my 2cents out there  :thumb:

Or people could use the forum like a forum and actually browse the subforums.

In my mind if you're looking for information on any of those things you listed above you go look in that subforum, that's why they are there, they help narrow things down so they can be found.

In the past we had members who would actually post great finds not just Ebay trolling.

And member auctions was created because classifieds auctions are against the rules (again many people don't seem to realize this place has rules).

And putting reviews in with everything else they'd get lost completely.

And the beauty of other geeky stuff is that it isn't off topic it's just not keyboard specific but still generally good information.

Off topic is just ramblings.

Not directed at you but I had no idea so many people didn't know how to use a forum because I've seen posts elsewhere from people who genuinely seem confused as to how to actually use this website.

This forum works like most any other forum I've ever used, maybe I'm getting old but a continuous stream of topics on a a single page where I have to use tags or filters to drill down isn't a forum.

Of course I have no idea how to use those newfangled things those other folks seem to think are better. Not really sure what to even call them.
