That's what obstacles are for: to be overcome, aren't they?  I'm sorry, I was just kidding the whole time. Just my way to express a quick but true sadness, seeing the ol'gamers nest flying away...I'm not a past type of guy. No sorrows, but memories.

I don't know, you tell me:Free? Relieved? '<img'>

Glad to be here, in such a nice company, just like before. And maybe just a bit closer to the future.

               Problem here!
I can easily use my spelling corrector (french here = ':alien:') directly into that "Quick Reply" window, but not within the "standard form" one.

Also, when we're finished editing a message, it would be nice to be sent back near that very message and not to the first page of the thread.

And please could you turn this "Modified 3 minutes ago..." most annoying spy off?

Thanks, great work so far.

If you're running Firefox, get the Fire Gestures plugin. Makes things like that an absolute breeze (hold the right button, flick left and up, you jump to the top of the page). It'll make your browsing a whole lot more efficient as soon as you get used to it. '<img'>

               Thanks for the tip on FireGestures, peachy; I'm loving this extension now!

I just wish these forums had a quick way to see when there are new posts, such as the different colored icons back on the Bioboards.<><>

               Fester what I was on about with the editor was that  it has all these modern fancy doo-dads yet it can't do the spell-checking properly unlike the old boards editor. Not only that but the spell-checking works properly on the quick reply panel at the bottom of this page. There is only one possible conclusion and that is that the main editor is broken but in a just usable way. As it appears to be the same editor that is used for editing signatures that would explain the annoying behaviour there as well.

How about pulling over the old "Joined On" dates from the original boards for those of us who were there?
A small item to be sure, but a good way to keep a sense of long time community.


Seconded! I think that would be most appropriate. For now, I have my original joined 'date' in my profile bio. Six strong and memorable years, and for others, even longer. '<img'>

I guess that's connected to the fact that we now have two forums that seem to invite server advertisements, "Ye Olde Tavern" and" PW & Multiplayer", while none of them explicitly invites talk about server administration, as stated in this thread. The new "PW & Multiplayer" might have been introduced to make things a little clearer and less confusing but so far I find the effect quite the opposite.

I think what this forum needs to change to make it better than the old one is to find better forum names than the old one had and also than this new one here currently has; names that are unambiguos and comprehensible even to people who are new to the forums and community.

Instead of
NWN 1 Modules
NWN 1 Guilds & Registry: Ye Olde Tavern
NWN 1 Persistant Worlds & Multiplayer

we could have, for example
NWN 1 Single Player Modules
NWN 1 Persistent Worlds & Multiplayer: Ye Olde Tavern
NWN 1 Server Admin
(and maybe, if still desired, NWN 1 Guilds).

That's just one suggestion and maybe there are still better solutions and also differing opinions on the topic but the important bit is to acknowledge that we've got the opportunity to make changes to the better NOW while the forums are still new. I think we should get together and discuss it and start a poll or something because if we manage to get a vote on it by the whole community, we might be able to convince the moderators / BioWare to give us those forums we actually need and with such names that we don't have to keep struggling with misplaced threads that clutter the wrong forums.

Any opinions or suggestions on that?

Seconded. I was focusing on modules question and didn't mention different forums for general CC and CEP because it was already brought up earlier in this thread but I'm definitely in favor of that, too.

               CEP does not need its own forum, as CEP topics come up in all forums eventualy, as the Bio-boards proved. CEP is community made custom content. It is no more or less special than Project Q, or CTP, or CMP. Yes loads of people use it as it has become "Standardized" however it does not require its own thread/forum as any questions, comments or snide remarks fit within the custom content genre of the current thread.
Oliver is right, there should be a SP mod topic, as well as an Admin topic for Running multi-player.

               Bah!  The Send Message opens a window that is TOO SMALL for me!  That is, I cannot get to the Submit button, because it is not in the window opened for the PM!



What a PIA!
