Yeah, but I think he was meaning that the sites that are used by 6 people world-wide could be trimmed out, leaving only the more popular sites that people might actually be willing to submit threads to (digg, reddit, etc.). As it is, they are lost in the flood of nobodies, hard to pick out. There is probably little incentive for even those inclined to click on such a social bookmark to dig out the ones they'd want to use.

You beat me to it. Chicklets are something where less is more.

Default Re: Official Request Thread

I have a couple of requests:

1) Could we get a fairly easily accessible link for "Mark all topics read" so that it flags everything as having been read in the forum you're in? That would come in real handy quite often.

2) Could some kind of script be run that went through the posts of all forums and replaced
Code:
<_ul type="square"_>
with
Code:
[list]
?
(you just need to remove the underscores, or else the text doesn't show even inside code tags)

Because right now the beginning of the list code from the old forums did not translate correctly even though the end of the list code did. It screws up the formatting completely and makes all lists unreadable. I've had to go and fix the Dom3 forum lists by hand (the important ones anyway), but running a script that did the edit mentioned above would fix the problem forum wide.

EDIT: This is what I'm talking about.

For number 1, this already exists. To mark all forums read, please see the quick link tab in the tool bar. To mark the forum you are in as read, please see forum tools which is at the top right of the forum you are in.

For number 2, we still have some code that we are auditing from the conversion, but thanks for the reminder on list tags.
