We, on the team, welcome djbaxter's valuable expertise as we continue to provide the best possible user experience for our members and guests.

djbaxter will of course reschedule the nightly scheduled maintenance at midnight Irish time that slows the site to a crawl for thirty minutes.
Thank you Mr Danger - great to have you on the team.

Can we hope for some cooler smileys?

Dj, are you in ownership of the site in anyway as surely rule changes are Montys decision?

The site is not GDPR compliant and if anything that should be a number 1 priority for the site.

It would be nice to have a statistics page such as Top Ten most viewed threads ever, Top Ten most liked posts, Top ten most commented on etc. Just an interesting feature available elsewhere and at one time here.

Maybe a requirement to change passwords every so often to thwart hackers from stealing them.

Also an ability to post videos other than YouTube, especially given the censorship of Alex Jones there.

Anti-bot and anti-spam measures too, including Capchas. Capchas could help thwart apps that spam boards with posts.

Can quoted posts be truncated? Some whoppers ending up appearing several times in quotes and it's a pain scrolling through the same thing again and again.

Also, could there be a time limit on edits to posts? Freeze them after ten minutes.

The GDPR nettle has to be grasped....

Ah come on that's way too short - 24 hours maybe....

Can you ban buzzwords?
You should not do this. Too many phrases are becoming normal for that to work. I'm not wild on swear word censorship that messes with lower level swears like Ar$ehole or a$$.

User tagging with the @ sign would be nice to have.
