Default Forum Issues and Suggestions

I thought I'd continue my habit of stealing great ideas from Kathy and start a thread just for reporting problems with the forum and providing issues and suggestions.

Over at Insim, the mods seem to have to deal with quite a few Frequently Requested Features that would make their board look more like MTS2 or The Sims Resource. I'll attempt to stem the tide here with this: Sun Sims is just a little personal site, not a big corporate-backed conglomerate. Those guys have the staff to do stuff that we have no hope of duplicating. Let us all gaze in wonder and awe at the wonderful toys they can provide, but learn to appreciate the charming simplicity of my little playpen here.

Am I the only one having difficulty with how the board shows the icons for what topics have been read?

If I back out of a topic one layer at a time, things show up as read, but if I just jump back to the top of the board or off to another topic, things show as unread even when I'm the last person to reply in a thread.

And some threads always show as unread no matter what I do.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Are there anky vBulletin experts around who might know what's causing it?

Yes, I've seen it, but I have no idea what's happening, unless the "read" flag needs to percolate back up layer by layer. For this reason, I always go into the page for "new posts since last visit."

I'm wondering if maybe the web browser is loading old pages from cache. But if that were the case, I'd see this same phenomenon at Insim, but Insim behaves exactly as I would expect.

Not if they've customized their meta tags to prevent it!

Aha! Good idea! I should have thought of having a section just for links to other sites and update announcements, so now there is one! I added Sims 2 Fan Sites Links and Updates to the "Community" area. And of course webmasters are welcome and encouraged to tell us about their sites and updates there.

No, Sun Sims doesn't allow pictures in signatures. I'm kind of a curmudgeon about elaborate signatures.
