    This forum is BEYOND great, just wish that we had:

    a) No flood control. (I type way too fast sometimes for it, and it's annoying to just sit there and wait and type it out anyhow)

    b) No 10 character limit. Sometimes you just want to laugh at someone's post and don't need 10 characters to do so. It does nothing...it doesn't prevent spammers from joining the board and spamming because at the very least they are going to post a link to some stupid Viagra website or porn or dating or whatnot, so they are going to break the 10 character limit anyhow. And all it does for the rest of us is type "LOL................" or "LOL (stupid 10 character limit)" etc etc.

    I wouldn't vote yes on either of those issues.
    Not sure about the rest of the Staff.

    Edit...Both are Needed.

    Eh, those two aren't too big for me. I believe they are both there to control against spamming in one form or another.

    Main thing I would like is a 'your posts' in the 'quick links' menu (similar to what we get on the mobile version.

    Maybe some more smilies.

    No and No. If you really type that fast as much as you post then you need to slow down a bit.

    Why is the 10 character limit needed? Just curious. It doesn't stop spamming.

    @ KZI I will forward this to see if we can get a tab lables " your posts" added in. No promises but it can't hurt to ask

    That would be great if we could get a "Your Post's" like others have mentioned.

    I think this is exactly what you are saying right Sam? I would completely agree with you.

    :rofl3: exactly why on my forums I have a 50 character min. Most people won't bother with silly posts like that... but I have a feeling you might be an exception, lol :icon_ devil:

    50 characters is...wow...what if you only need to tell someone to do something real easy? I guess 50 characters goes faster than you think. One sentence usually does it I guess.
