Start date of thread/hover feature
« Topic Start: July 14, 2011, 04:35:52 PM »
Just a suggestion for features that I have seen on other boards that are very user friendly.  The first is to have the thread start date with the thread title.  You have the date/time of the latest post, but not the start date.  For me, I look for new threads and tend to passover threads I've read or are not relevant.  The start date helps.

Also, I've seen a hover feature that allows you to put the cursor on a thread and a small box with the first 20 or so words of the first post on the thread.  This allows a glimpse of the thread to help you determine if you'd like to read it or not.

Also, maybe separating the sticky threads from the active threads on the boards.  Just seems a little easier to navigate through threads.

Major upgrades are coming this Winter, so no new features are being considered for the time being.

Sounds familiar. I think maybe you have been a Nationals fan for far too long. :lol:

Chief is going to delete the forum and replace WNFF with a Chatroulette feature where if you're unlucky you might get a nice shot of Air Zimmerman looking at Dukes pictures :spaz:
