    New Forum tips and hints, as well as your suggestions

    I'm getting some navigation questions. Most can be found in Settings. The default setting is not to be sent an email notification when you get a PM or request. You might choose to change that one. You are only given 50 PM's so you might want to clear out your messages every so often. Also you can choose to not save your Sent messages as that counts in your totals.

    I think the IL needs to be changed. A whole post to tell you that the post is from someone on your IL, as o2cui2i said, is pretty over the top. I wish it was just invisible.

    Invisible IL would be ideal.

    Not a big deal, but the "Load New Messages" feature from the old board's Chrome add-on was great. It allowed you to participate in high-volume threads like GDTs - continually refreshing and scrolling gets tedious.

    I'll see if I can find a fix for that. You're sure you were logged in, in both devices?

    I'll look into that too, but I don't know if there's anything we can do about that.

    Geez, you guys have people on ignore already? lol
    I'll take a look, but I'm not too sure if it's possible.

    What about "What's new" up top? Would that be close to what you want?

    You can easily do this with the Stylish addon if you're using Firefox (I'm sure there's something very similar with Chrome). I can let people know what to input to do it. Keep in mind you won't see any hint of the post ever existing though except for the post number skipping one.

    I don't know if there's anything like that for Chrome.

    I just took a look, it's available for Chrome as well. Let me test it out and make sure I can repeat the steps easily.

    Instructions for using Stylish to not display posts of ignored users (make sure you install the Stylish addon if you want to do this):

    There's very minor differences between the two, but nothing significant. For Chrome:


    1. Click on the Stylish icon (top right hand corner at least for me), and click "managed installed styles".
    2. On the left hand side of the screen, click on "Write New Style"
    3. Beside "Applies to", click "select", choose "urls on the domain", type in "www.bluejaysmessageboard.com", and click "add".
    4. Under the code section, type in ".postbitignored {display:none !important;}" (without the quotes, make sure you don't miss the "." before postbitignored).
    5. On the left hand side, type in a name for the style (I chose "bluejaysmessageboard"), select the option for "Enabled", and click "save".


    To toggle it on and off, just click on the Stylish button and choose enable/disable.

    For Firefox, the icon is likely in the bottom left corner:


    1. Click on the Stylish icon, and click "Write New Style", and select "For www.bluejaysmessageboard.com".
    2. Enter a name for the style (I chose "bluejaysmessageboard").
    3. Between the curly braces following the section that says @-moz-document domain("www.bluejaysmessageboard.com"), add in ".postbitignored {display:none !important;}" (without the quotes, make sure you don't miss the "." before postbitignored). Click "save".


    To toggle it on and off, just click the Stylish button and click on the style name.

    I noticed the same thing on my mobile. Not a huge deal, but it was nice not having to use the brain so much to remember where I left off.

    Develop an upvote/downvote for each post that keeps track of a poster's +/-

    At the end of the month end most upvoted poster can receive a badge and it'd be a good way for the mods to keep track of the terrible posters.

    I.e. Something similar to what reddit has.
