Hi guys,
Do you think we could maybe tweek the top section of the forum page a little?  Maybe change how it records posts scince last visits...new replies...top posts exctra?  might be a better way to do it?

Hi CE
Jazza is working on that as we speak actually. Rainman brought the topic up last night. I will let Jazza comment on it.

If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

I am smarter than my doppelganger!

If you cannot love, then at least don't hate.
If you cannot help, then at least don't hurt.

Gee guys, what have I started. GTD's doppelganger is commenting on everything he says.

I thought the doppelganger would actually comment first, followed by GTD later on.

GTD, your doppelganger is slow... lol

Changing that top section would require a bit of coding, possible, but there are other issues that need to be dealt with.
It may ultimately end up being a waste of time since at some point the new versions of SMF (The software that runs the forum) and TinyPortal (The addon to SMF which supports articles and blocks, such as the front page) are coming out which will probably require changing everything.
There's always the Back button. Is your browser up to date?

Actually TC and I have been chatting about how the forum seems to have branched off into  a sort of social outlet for people and how maybe it needed 2 doors. Rainman your query was fortuitous!  so I thought I would stir the pot! Sorry Admin if I have stepped on toes here

No toes stepped on but keep in mind we are limited by the software we use so can't perform miracles. Fact also is, if people come to read and don't post, then they are part of the problem.
