    When uploading images, the browse feature should open a newer version of the explorer. The classic version can be problematic at times.

    Are we authorized to request a Development Section?

    I will look into the image upload situation, as for requesting a development section it depends.

    I envisage all aspects of the forum expanding in time based on need and use, and if a development section (or any other sub forum for that matter) was needed then we would certainly consider using it, but initially we want to keep the forum numbers down. No use in having many empty forums!

    I would love it if you guys could make these forums work with Tapatalk. Forgive me as I have no idea of how much work that it or if it would cost anything, but it would make accessing these forums from my phone easier!

    Can the top logo link back to the site rather than the forum?

    It is something that we will consider. Personally I am in two minds with chat boxes, they are incredibly useful, but they do detract from forum contributions. But it's not all about what "I" want though, it is about what is best for the community. :)

    Done, the logo now links to the main page - not the forum.

    It's understanding was on another gaming forum for a couple years that had this and the forum comments linked to the main site so use to this kinda stuff but like I said I understand if this isn't possible.

    I'm now getting the Tapatalk popup message when accessing on my phone, so it looks like some progress has been made :)
    But searching for the forum in Tapatalk shows nothing yet. :(
    Still... One step at a time, eh?

    Perhaps if you do eventually include a chatbox it can be only be used by those people who have and will continue to make contributions via posting this way it will not detract from those that would simply use it to do all their "posting". I have seen chatboxes be used for good and evil in the past.

    We will expand forums as and when the need arises. No point in having 40 forum choices with hardly anything in them. :) Makes the place look emptier.

    I don't think it's logical to have "Home" link back to the main page of the forum, while there's already a "Forums" option. Could it be linked to the general homepage?

    Maybe we need a link back to the main site here, perhaps just not label it home?

    When we changed the link, we didn't have a "forum" home one. :)

    I simply removed "home" - if you need to get to the main site click the logo, it's hard to miss.

    I actually added the icon already (it's the same as the main site's icon), but I hear it takes time to update.

    If the ability to quickly mark a thread or even an entire section of the forum has "read" could be added it would be nice :)
    For example, as I've seen in the past in other forums, clicking the "Unread messages" bubbles would mark the entire section/thread as read.

    It comes handy for people like me who likes the visual reference of the bubbles, but don't necessarily take on every subjects available. I would basically read/respond to all the threads I'm interested in, and then click the bubbles to have a visual reference for my future visit.

    EDIT : Ok I just discovered "Mark Forums Read" on the top... So... Well... Yeah. Nevermind :oops:
