I’d like to see a couple of things, that have bugged me before:
1. Possibility to moderate own topics
2. Possibility to delete own post
3. Possibility to subscribe to a RSS feed of a certain topic (not the whole forum)
Also I noticed that the email notifications don’t seem to be working very reliably. Or do I only get constant notifications if I click on the link in every one of them and read that post?
Personally I would love it if the topics in this forum would be categorized better into “Newbie Questions” and “Advanced Questions” and also a better separation between Bug Reports and Library Support for external libraries. Maybe tags could help, but most importantly I think that the 8 main categories could be broken down a little bit more to create a better order.
Visually I would decrease distraction from the discussion by profile pictures (too big for my taste) as well as those long (and recurring) signatures. There’s quite a lot of visual overhead on the discussion pages that make it hard(er) to follow the thread. Maybe the forums at CI could be stackoverflowed a little
I DO like the “fast reply” function as well as the post form (although it would be nice to see the actual thread above that, too).
