Which new features of the forum do you absolutely LOVE?

I absolutely LOVE that when you paste a link, it gives it the title of what's in the link automatically. I cant get over it, I just think its so cool!

http://forum.interference.com/f224/n...gh-186837.html

The multi quote feature is also one of my favorite new toys, god how did we ever live without it????

And, finally, the fact that you can make the reply box bigger or smaller is SO helpful to me, especially when I am editing threads like the picture threads where its nice to have a lot of space to work with.

And I cant even begin to contain my excitement over the new mod/admin tools, also making my life so much easier.

I want to know what is your favorite feature of the new forum. No complaints in this thread please, just list your favorites

I'm a bit of a computer spaz so my favourite thing is that I can basically ignore all the new things if I want and just do what I used to do.
I'll get to them eventually but veerryy slowly. Great job though

Hmm we were actually thinking of removing that for members because of it possibly being misused. I suppose if you all use it properly it can stay

Multi-quote, ftw! That is srsly the best thing ever!

I like the bigger box below the posts for quick replies.

The blogs are pretty cool. I like being able to see the first few sentences, so you can have a better idea what is written, and decide whether or not to read the full thing.

Also, clicking on the person's name, and the options there is nice.

The options at the top right of the page (link back, tools, etc.) is fun.

Hell, I love pretty much everything! The upgrade has been fantastic so far! Thanks for all your hard work. You guys are awesome!


PS - OMG - just noticed that the reason for editing actually does show up! Hee!

I haven't fully examined all the new features yet, but I like the ones I've seen so far.

Like the multi-quote feature, which I've only had to use once so far, but I know it will come in handy a lot. And this quick reply is just perfect (the regular reply screen's features are great too.)

And I love that you don't have to load like three different pages just to edit a post.

And I like that when you click someone's name, rather than being taken directly to their profile, you get a menu box with options.


One question, I can understand why you wouldn't want us abusing the 'reason for edit' feature, but can we be allowed to abuse it in non-serious situations, like chat threads or It's Official threads?
