    date format opinion

    Just my opinion but... if you are going to use a relatively
    unusual date format such as Year/Month/Day, I think
    you should use a 4-digit year. Dates like "01/02/03"
    are pretty confusing at first.

    Or, even better, allow users to edit their profile and
    select their own date format.

    Cheers.

    There are plans afoot for doing that. [img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Cool.

    While I'm at it, I'll throw out another idea.
    Allow users to specify what boards show up in the main index. If, for example, I do not use Visio and have no need for it, it would be nice if I could set up the index so that I don't even see that Board. I would think that a feature like this would actually increase performance on the index page because then it needn't bother calculating numbers of total and unread messages for all boards.

    Just an idea.

    I believe Scream also has that one on his list of things to do next. [img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Re: personalize board list

    That's a great idea (allowing the user to select which boards to appear in the main index). There are many boards I have no need to deal with, I'd like to shorten my list, too!
