This poll is a great idea.

Personally I do share Twilightsymphony's opinion.
There are so many categories that it's really difficult now to find which topic section is the good one.
Thus, there are all these page scrolling stuffs...
It's better that people don't have to scroll too much if they want, for exemple, to see who is online.
I think the best is "English part" / "finnish part" / "other languages" sections, with in each of these sections "Stratovarius / Offtopic / Musician discussion". Simple but powerful :wink:

I totally agree with it! I think it would be the best way to organize the categories! :D

There is an option in the user preference to show the sig everytime, it may be turned off on default.

Yeah, I changed it, but looks like sig doesn't work in messages I made before the change ...
Well, screw it, you'll have plenty of opportunities in the future to read my sig :lol: :lol:

3) The aforementioned forum (In Other Languages) says that it is not moderated, but administrator and Liina are listed as mods :) Since the majority of that forum posters speaks either Spanish or Portuguese, wouldn't it be nicer to appoint one Spanish and one Portuguese speaking persons as mods there?
Agreed. And by the way, i decided to announce my name as the Portuguese candidate! All we need now is a Spanish one!

One more suggestion - put the Rules part in the top, it's the natural place for such a things ... :)

Nobody reads them anyway ;)

But when having a second thought, could it actually be possible to have all the sections but on the index page having only english, finnish, other languages and the rules as main categories and under them the subcategories for each language? Would make the index page to fit on to the screen at once with most normal resolutions.

Nooo! not me... I don't think the portuguese forum needs a moderator cause there're a feel people in there. As we all know each other I don't think we'll start flame battles in there out of nothing...

other schemes are better, but still I miss the old one. The problem is they are not very clear, too messy. The poll's a great idea. For me, strato, off-topic and musician discussions is enough.

Would it by any chance be possible to reinstate the "at least 50 posts before posting a topic" rule?

Agreed... I myself have nothing against newbies, on the contrary, but one thing that I think it's irritating is when they arrive here and create topics that have already been posted before.

I chose "subSilver", it's the layout I use on all phpBB forums I visit ... It just looks more familiar this way :)

Blah! I didn't mind it when it was light blue for a day or two-- it didn't "match" the rest of the site, but it was easy to read... This thing is TOO dark. It's a strain on your eyes! :x
