Hello )
this forum has taken shape quite fast Smiley looking good

i wish to offer some ideas/opinion to consider in the forum function looking at improving browseability (if theres such a word lol) - not telling u what to do, just some thoughts from seeing other forums operate.

1: the register section is good Smiley as it eliminates the spambots that plague other forum software

2: The ads seen in the forum can be filtered out by using the NoScript addon for Firefox, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/722 , simply dont allow scripts for lookery.com and googlesyndication.com and ads are mostly gone

3:consider font size for the navigation bar so it is easier to see url (ie Xtra News Community 2 > General Category > General Forum at top of forum categories)

4: Recent posts: at http://accforum.org/forums/index.php?act=idx the header has a button to display todays topics, that could be useful idea for this forum when theres lots of threads for the day and finding/choosing which ones to read

5: Online Users function: The online users function is now turned off on here(for guests) although the useful feature of that being available (optional) is others  can see which threads are being read without having to log in, useful for seeing what google/other crawlers are caching, and can help some to find old threads of interest long forgotten.......

6: Post counts and karma stats and member levels: These are optional - sometimes useful to null them to avoid personal spats and people have attention on the posts contents instead of post numbers or karma stats games.....so perhaps consider if any / all are need or what u would like to do with them.

anyway good job done on creating this site Smiley
