Some sort of 'Quick reply' option? An input box at the bottom of the last page of replies to post so you can see posts above you while you type, rather than having to use the weird review window in the posting.php page.

there actually IS a favicon, it just only shows up sometimes for some reason
I'm more easily reached at classpectanon#4228 on Discord. I will respond to reports faster there because PHPBB's notification system is borked and doesn't email me when you report things.

Oh, yeah, we definitely still need the favicon.
The obvious choice is Image, but there are some great options. Maybe :candycorn: or a pumpkin (the HS one, not :pumpkin:)

Related to favicons, here are some classic missing emotes that would be good:

Your problem is <link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://forums.homestuck.xyz/favicon.ico">.
That needs to point to either https://forum.homestuck.xyz/favicon.ico or https://homestuck.xyz/favicon.ico. As it is now, it's probably just a typo, but that's why it's broken.

Could we have a button that, rather than taking us to the last post in the thread, takes us to the last read post in the thread? That way we can skip to where we already were if a thread we're following has been updated

i would like a "no uncredited fanart" rule. this technically falls under "no illegal content" (COPYRIGHT VIOLATION IS NOT A JOKE, JIM) but i suspect that doesnt count. a lot of us are artists and its kinda irritating to see people dump fanart they pulled off of google images without even knowing who drew it, much less asking if they can repost

There are a bunch of discussion threads (vast error, karkat goes to a con, etc) that aren't really fan projects so much as discussions.
Wondering if we should separate out discussion threads about fan adventures from "Here is my fan project" threads in Fan Projects.

Good idea.

Do you think that a "Fanventure Discussion" forum should be in Fan Projects or Forum Adventures?

I might just throw "Fanstuff Discussion" directly under creative corner, for discussion of any fan projects, adventures, or other content that you're not "doing".

my extremely big and forum shaking suggestion is that the server should enforce https, so that people dont accidentally submit their passwords through an unsecure network. :apple:
