    Please put an unclosed [table] and fuck the site up.

    If an author is added to a bundle (recourse?) will he/she get rep as well?

    Asking the real questions.

    Isn't there a way to reinstall "(x people viewing)" to forum titles? :)

    Oh sure. I am sure you can find an addon for this over on http://www.xenforo.com

    I just focus more on improving search and fix bugs right now :).

    I dont like that you see the avatar of the person who created a thread in the forum.
    Especially with the avatar animations it just distracts from reading the thread title.
    And for me the title is much more important than a visual reminder who created the thread.

    Yes, that is annoying for most forum sections. It becomes useful when you remember a user's avatar and use the current search for a map for instance. It reduces its use when the avatar has been changed or is the same as someone else's.

    Is it me or the rating for a resource (a map for instance) isn't specifically shown/written as in: 4.25/5 or something?

    Aww come on guys, now you're just being picky. The images are fine. XenForo comes with that stuff by default and all others XenForo communities I've been to accept it, it's just a matter of getting used to it.

    If you accept it, it's fine, but it doesn't mean it's necessariyl the better choice.

    But I must also say, that I find it good and very matching for NewsFeed, Started Conversation, Profile Posts and Recent Activity. Here it's good that a person comes in forground and is easy to identify.
    Though in our forums it's not really needed imo if the author's name is readable enough, and also on NewPosts for example I don't see it as any worthful.
    When I want to inform about activity in my section of interest I solely care about the topic being discussed there, and it's not about following the activity of one of my friends.
    Since many avatars are petty eye-catching, it will lead to distraction.

    Only that we can, does not mean we should do it. And sometimes less is more.

    Basically all of this. I've seen multiple forums upgrade to XenForo and to such a surprise, everyone is more than fine with it after a little while. If you keep telling yourself you don't like the change by nitpicking, it'll just take longer to get used to.

    In this case, it's not really a question of better or worse. It's just a different design decision. There's no pleasing everybody on that front.

    But if we were to seek consensus in some sort of official context, I bet we could please the majority (and/or find a compromise that partially pleased everyone).

    Poll, anyone?

    Sure, Fladder. I also don't want to obstrude my opinion, but in case it's shared by you guys it's a possible change for sure. An alternative would also be of course just to block avatars for me, if needed urgently.

    -------------------

    Something to chat, though. There is this cool notifications in the tab window, one for public unread messages, and one for unread messages where people called you by name (so, private).
    I experienced that if you participate in a private channel with someone you will get the public counter increased, and not the private one for unread messages. Could this maybe be changed, so the private one get increased?

    I have considered making something like a tooltip that pops up when you hover the rating.
