    Drew's Cookie Jar - psst. want a forum upgrade

    Sometime next week I hope just about everyone with a Reg account will be able to start up their own topics. But for now we have to manually give super powers.

    If you want to participate before the public unveiling. - ping me here. I will do my best to oblige.

      I'll give it a whirl.

        Done - btw you can now also use some html formats and html links

      Does this mean that the default "Post" text that says "No HTML" would be replaced for the power users?

      1. Drewc Gold badge

        No HTML...

        Try it Geoff - as well as links you have these to play with.

        Bold, emphasis, strikethrough.

          Loverly and thanks :-)

          Was it intentional not to allow underline, superscript and subscript?

          Those are about the only ones (particularly superscript) that I would probably use.

            I'd like a crack at that. I have some thoughts on hardware/software demand that I'd like to run by the assembled worthies (and Barry).

            Re: Loverly and thanks :-)

            It was intentional to start off with a limited set of html formats and those are the ones we picked for now.

            Some other people have called for blockquote and

                                .

            As long as they get the <Rant> and <Sarcasm> tags working

        Hmm - I guess this means that I'm already here?? Or just that I can't start new topics?

    Suggestion for a forum upgrade

    How about a forum wide scoring table giving a list of posts that have scored particularly high - or low - in upvotes/downvotes as this will give an idea of what topics are interesting people.

    Perhaps giving all time as well as in the past month.

    Not that I am competitive in anyway shape or form honest (46 upvotes is the best I have managed on a single post)

      Re: Suggestion for a forum upgrade

      Ian - funny that you mention that. But this is something I would like for our next round of upgrades.

    Oooh...

    ...so this is why people have been able to use markup, I though they had found some bug in the input filters.

    Could I be bestowed with the powers of markup please Drew? I promise to use them for good only! ... Or I could just start using lolcat speak (that seemed to work for someone else!) ;)

      Hey, I resemble that remark!

      Mostly I just wanted to try out the new reply feature though... ;-)

    Wouldn't say no to some formatting options. Thankee kindly.

    I'll have a go!

    in the spirit of curiosity, of course!

    I'd also like to give it a whirl

    Tried \<b> and \</b> in a post a couple of days ago, and it failed miserably. Did I not utter the magic incantation properly, or do I need to be endowed (snicker) with the same super-posers that were alluded to above?

      Re: I'd also like to give it a whirl

      You shall now succeed magnificently.

        Thank you

        And I love my new super-posers (Now, if you help my typing...)

    Whaaat?

    No blink tag? Obligatory "this forum is teh sucks and your in legue with the debil" type post.

    Is it possible to get an auto alert every time some loser tries <script language="JavaScript"> ? You could do a great line in booting.

    I've got some bourbons...

    ...and custard cremes going spare for the jar, can I come in too?

      Re: I've got some bourbons...

      I don't do biscuits myself, especially not fig rolls. Besides don't you know that custard creams can kill. And that's official ....

      Southern, BoldMan you're both in.

    Here is another suggestion

    In the drop down box, which lists posts in oldest newest thread order, what about a link to "your latest post" or something? Might make it easier to jump to ones own comments, when part of a long and tedious thread

    1. Drewc Gold badge

      Re: Here is another suggestion

      We'll have a think.

    Can I get on the list, pls?
