Can you please modify the Category Titles in main Forum Directory.

The Helvetica Bold or whatever is being used makes http://www.race-dezert.com/forum/ oddly similar to one of those off brand web search engine pages that screams spam all over it.

You talking about the listing of forums on the home page? The red words?
"Desert Racing"
"Short Course Racing" etc ?

GET RID OF THE MUSIC!!!!

If you are hearing music when loading any page on our site its on your end. There is no music.
Maybe Maybe one of our patterns banners is playing music or sound, but the contract we have with all of them is to NOT do that and if a banner does that we will put a stop to it.

Please explain more about the music you are hearing.

Yes that is correct Klaus. I dont have a direct solution to recommend but I feel that there is something more subtle and softer on the eyes, but yet stands out clearly from the rest of the content.

How about bringing back the "Mark this forum read" / "Mark all forums read" option(s).

I used to use those buttons all the time.

Hover over the "Forums" link and pick from the drop down.

Thats easier said than done on a touch screen (ipad). Doable but difficult. +1 for a new posts link. (No you can't bookmark the new post search results because they won't reflect the actual new posts the next time you hit it)

(has anyone tried the new rely window on an ipad? Holy slow batman!. Good thing I don't post much unless I'm complaining about something ;-) ...)

the "forum" pull down works best when clicked on towards the right.

There was a preview of a thread available if you hovered over the thread title, it was there for the first couple of days I believe, but now it seems to be missing. Anyone else notice this? Can a thread preview be brought back if it was disabled?

I noticed it too. And yes I miss it!!! FWIW, it disappeared from the old forum a while back too...

Now this is just plain strange. My other computer works just fine, the border header is in the correct location. This computer is in the middle of the page. Any help on this ?

Klaus wrote on another thread that new forum doesn't support older operating systems like Windows 7, etc.
Google chrome is supposed to be the best browser and race-dezert works fine using it and other newer browsers, I hear.
