It's different, I will give you that, cannot say it's the nicest I have used, but that is probably due to my love for the Met's forums Cheesy

I am liking the unique aspect of it at the moment

The Meritocracy's forums are very nice.    They were nice to begin with, and Winnipeg custom designed many functions to make them even nicer.   It is hard to compete with that.   But SMF (our forum brand) is still really nice.  I expect things to only improve for SMF in the future.

Did you check out the "Preview" option?  It was done with AJAX so the text loads without having to reload the site.  I love that.   Cheesy

I have to say that this is a very nice forum, one of the nicest i've seen.  Smiley SMF seems to be very good and would almost certainly be my first choice if I was to build a forum.

Yeah, I don't like the banner.  I can't say that I even understand it.  It makes me think of softcore spam.

I was a bit confused by it as well.

Anyone else put off by the avatar being under all the info? It confuses the hell out of me every time I notice it.  Undecided

That is something I would like to change in time.  It probably isn't too hard to change the style, but that is a project for another day.

I'm not really bothered by it. Something nifty though would be to have your nation and ns region info. along with the avatar and all that stuff.

There is an admin option to put that info below the member's post count, but the option is not working properly.   The member's nation and region do appear in their profile, and I can add as many profile fields as I want, so there is room for more.

Additionally, there is an option for "Personal Text"  under the section labeled "Forum Profile Information." The option is on the same page that you upload your avatar from, and the text will appear below your avatar.

[nitpick] The Crypt should say archived posts, not deleted, otherwise you would not see them [/nitpick]

Well, posts are moved to the Crypt when they are deleted.  If it is a problem, I'll hide the Crypt so that nobody can see it but the Administrator.  Tongue

I created the Crypt to prevent abuse of Mod powers.  I think I'll make it a hidden forum so that only the Administrator can see it.  If there are any complaints of post deletions then I'll be able to see what was actually deleted.

Good idea.  I created the "Voting Chamber" in The Apella.  I hope this will help to keep things organized.
