Both Chrome and Firefox have that functionality built in


Hi Rambo, styleforum is the only place I can not get this to work and I am using Firefox 8.0 Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. Am I the only one?

Brian - quick Google-foo. Let me know if any of these work for you:

It was like a light bulb went off in my head and I was like "OH, thats probably why!!" I have the default set to the rich text editor as I find it easier to use when doing my Megathread listings with all the pictures and in rich text editor mode you can not right click underlined red words. It only works in the BBcode mode.

Is there a place where all the admins/mods/staffers are listed?

Yeah, I'm used to vBulletin, which typically has a generated list of mods for each forum...



Edit: Another question...

When a post gets put in the mod queue, and then gets approved, is the post timestamp the original creation timestamp or the timestamp of when it was approved?

I was going to review a few things today, but I couldn't find anything I own. Are there any plans to add more items to review? Could you maybe have another contest to encourage more reviews?
There are a bunch of Yoox items in the reviews section. It would be great if people would review a few lesser known European brands.

fwiw, you can enter items to review. The workflow right now is more cumbersome than it ought to be, but that will be worked on after the break.

Do we really need that Reviews feature on this forum? It is pretty much useless and practically no one is adding reviews. Also, some things are broken. For example, grooming products are listed under Cufflinks

Is it possible to subscribe to specific searches? I would love to get an update every time my jacket or shoe size pops up in B&S.

+1, please please please. I'm sure most of us love that eBay has this functionality, and it would make B&S that much more useful to me.

I don't know if this has been brought up before but I think it will be better to force a seller to select one of the subforums when making a listing in the B&S (MC / SWD / Other). Some people browse only the MC B&S or SWD B&S and sometimes good items tend to go unnoticed because it's listed in the general B&S and doesn't show up in the subforums.

you may have addressed this already, but can we get rid of those default avatars for the new year? it's confusing as to who is posting with so many guys having the same image.

I can put the list of mods on each forum. Right now, barring the CE forum, I have this turned off, but I'm thinking of changing this. The reason it's turned off right now is that we don't want our mods to get inundated with questions. Unlike some other forums, which have designated mods for everything, we like our "wild west sheriffs" system, with a very small number of mods whose word is law. There is a feedback form for questions. Our editorial staff is constantly changing, save for our editor-in-chief.

Re. Second questions - Original timestamp. We try to get to these ASAP.

We will keep the review system. However, we will look for better feed, and probably de-emphasize its prominence in the right hand column and put something more relevant, like featured B&S items, in its place.

Dunno, and the support team is still on break, but I'll try to get back to this next week.

This may be changed in a few iterations. It's not really high up on the agenda of things to do (the big two are performance and a native mobile platform) but it may sneak its way into the engineering agenda.

I'd rather see hashtags to mentions of specific products in the forum and an easy way to get to those specific posts (probably is one, but I have no idea how...)

Well, check on the frontpage. In response customer demand and to our own perceptions and analyses of the forum, there is now more forum on the forum. There is the carousel, with the latest editorial features (and a blog with contribution from your favorite posters is upcoming), a latest discussion section beside a live feed from B&S, and then, the forum!

Enjoy.

Fok, how much longer until the search function gets fixed. I cant even provide constructive feedback because its completely useless. Only chance of finding something on SF is outside of SF (i.e. google search)
