               Going to take some getting used to though... I spent the better part of 9+ years on the old boards.

               Nice shiny new forum...  come on all you DA and ME players, its much more fun over here. ':whistle:''<img'>

Seriously, it could use a CEP thread and code boxes in the script thread, but it's early days and it's looking good so far. '<img'>  Thanks Bioware.

               Kind of a bummer after all these years with the same forum.  I guess I'll have to get used to this place (not that I posted that often on the older boards).

Some things I'd like to see for this newer space:
- The ability to add our own avatar image for the profile.
- The ability to reduce the size of the avatar images on the "topics lists" pages of each forum (so more topics can fit on the screen at once).
- The ability to post in real code boxes that preserve spacing/formatting of nwscript.
- A "preview post" button so that we can check what we're going to post before it actually goes live for everyone.

hehe...at least we can now edit our own posts...

edited to add:
- Can a method be added to the "topics lists" pages for each forum that will link you to the first new post made in a thread since you last read it?  I've always found it a pain to see that a thread has new replies, but I have to manually scroll through to find the new posts (unless there was only 1 new post, since the last one is linked to).

               Thanks...been here for quite some time though.



The Bioware Off-topic forum (that was on the old forums before) was moved here like a year ago or so...

               Not too happy about this move, as sooner or later we'll have to find a solution that's independent of BioWare's support (which I've got to acknowledge though as long as it lasts, so kudos to the BW team for still reaching out to the NWN community after all this time).

However, I wouldn't want another split and since the choice seems to be go with the flow or abandon the community, this grumpy old sceptic has decided to give in and follow suit for now. You won't get rid of me that easily.

               Simply will have to adjust.  I saw somewhere someone was saying we could somehow link to all our old posts on the old bioware forums, anyone care to enlighten me?

If bioware ever stops hosting forums for NWN, It'd take very little effort and cost for me to set up a new forum and domain name for everyone.

               ^Now THAT is what I call offering a solution!



More of that, less of what we cannot do.

That is already there. Edit profile photo

That is also already there.  If you look at the header for any forum thread, on the right, it tells you when the last post was made, giving you an esitmate in minutes,. hours etc...   The very last item on that line looks like a green corner, is a direct link to the last post in the thread.  IE, the most recent.

Unless I'm missing something that's only for choosing BioWare's avatar images. I think what The Amethyst Dragon meant was using images from other sources than this forum since the selection here is quite limited.

The Amethyst Dragon seems aware of that, too (see bold print). The Question is if you can see e.g. the last threes items, too, instead of just the most recent one.
