There appears to be something wrong with your quoting, Atticus. All I'm seeing is "-snip." I'll look into this issue.

As to the boundless guy, does anyone know them? I'm not really sure what venue to go through to speak to them and invite them here.

Oh, haha, no worries, the whole "-snip" thing is a habit of mine. When I'm not referencing a specific part of a post that is right above mine in a forum I tend to just get the quotes and manually cut the rest. If it's a specific part I'll trim it to it. Either way I just have habits from some game forums I frequent to cut out most of the quotes to save space. Not a worry for the system.

As to boundless, it's author is a person going by the name "leupai". Don't really know much about them or how to get in contact with them but they do have a blog here http://leupai.tumblr.com/

I'm not sure if they'd join as they seem to be kind of shy, but it'd be worth a shot. His game has certainly helped inspire material for my own and it'd be nice to have author direct material floating around our shores.

Yeah, it took me quite awhile for me to get the hang of it. There was a lot of futzing around with debug mode to figure out what does what. but I'm a dwarf fortress player, so I'm used to abusive interfaces.

I attempted to reach out to them, but if their tumblr posts are any indication, they're ignoring my invitation. In lieu of that, if we can find a resident expert on it, I can make the board and make them the moderator.

One feature that could be really useful is a "spoiler" markup feature. When someone wants to ask a gameplay question or answer they may want to hide one or both from people browsing the board (common on TFGameSite for example). The spoiler would be rendered as an empty box where the contents are revealed on a mouse click. I couldn't see it here, I don't know if it's a disabled board feature, or would be a real pain to code.

Oh, that's actually a great idea. I'd like to second that

You can now use spoilers (it's the 'Sp' button in the bbc options)

An example of how to use it can be seen below:

Code: [Select]
[spoiler=My Spoiler Title]This is a test[/spoiler]
You can see how it looks below:

Spoiler for My Spoiler Title:
This is a test

maybe implementing a shoutbox would be a good idea. posting in forum threads is fine and good, but random chatter can clog up space and it's not as instantaneous.

You can test the new shoutbox over at http://www.weightgaming.com/test_forum/index.php

If that's good, I'll go ahead and add it to the main forum.

It was a permissions issue. Should be able to see the shoutbox in the test instance now.

Alright, as I'm sure you can see, there's now a shoutbox at the top of the forum. I'd move it down to the bottom, but that's not an option until I edit the theme. For now, though, enjoy it for leaving a stray comment, or holding a group chat about whatever strikes you. Its not quite IRC, but hey, its there if you need it.

here is an idea. A notification on the tab if there is a new PM/post/chat message? For example on my gmail pinned tab (in firefox) when i have a new email it has a sort of glowing aura. Perhaps something could be done like that? or maybe make the tab icon animate or something?
