Some forums I use have various facilities which would be helpful, if Tech could provide them, such as giving the name of the original poster and the date first posted, an edit button, and the possibility of deleting a post (you can usually only do this before somebody else has posted a reply).

Good idea!

Erm, I suggested aaaaages ago that it would be helpful to have the name of the original poster and the date, but not many people agreed.

I remember, phoenix - I agreed! But GNHQ never got back to us on that, although they did say they wouldn't be letting us have an 'edit' function...sad

I can find the original poster for any of the subjects. For example, 'This made me laugh' was started 642 posts ago by yourself, Greatnan, on Mon. 13 Feb '12 at 12:05:36 or do you mean something else?

Yes, flump, but you can only find that after you've clicked on it.

Exactly, phoenix.
(Blimey, I have been busy with jokes, haven't I? I hope I get a medal after I have posted 1000 - and thanks to everyone else who has contributed to the joke thread)

We will definitely pass your feedback on to tech. They are very busy knitting emoticons for future use but we will let them know your ideas.

Does this mean we're getting our crescent moon?
