You know that time bar we had? The one that told you the day, time, month and year you were on with utmost precision the moment you refreshed ANY forum page? Yeah shit, that was the most convenient thing ever. Put that thing back there. I used it all the time.

Seriously. It was just the most awesome feature of the whole forum, and this one doesn't has it. It sucks. Stamp it back on. Don't make me ask again.

What do you mean, you can just look at the time on the taskbar? IT'S NOT THE SAME FREAKING THING. I mean, look at the taskbar clock. Look at it. 17:06, 15/02/2011. What the hell is this shit? I can't read it. I can't even look at it. It makes me puke.

Anyway, time bar back on forums. Make it happen.

Are you talking about the old NGW phpBB forums?

Haha, I figured Mods from the old forums would complain about lack of their old mod tools, or any sort of private forums, or no file attachments, or no sigs. Not "no clock".

I'll see what I can do, but this is WAAAAAAAAAAAAY down on my to-do list.

It's okay, man. It's okay. Take your time. Yeah, just don't rush it.

As long as in the end we get clocks, everything's gonna be just fine. Juuuust fine.

On a side note, I do find the quote function stupidly hard to use. I just can't figure my way around it at all.

Maybe make it a little like the old forum, [quote]where you entered those quote brackets to quote something?[/quote] Or is there already a way to do it like that?

If the Quote icon is "activated" (blue), the text should be indented, and when you post it will be quoted. Hit Enter to start a new line, and if you click the icon off, text will go back to normal.

There's no fucking way I'm going back to [tags] to mark up content. It may make sense to you and other people who visit forums frequently, but it's not fun to learn a completely new system, so the system I have set up now is more like MS Word
