Is there an update planned for the forum? It is good and works fine and I like the simple style, but some new features would be really nice:

1) The possibility to tag/include shout outs to other people in forum posts.
2) Drag&drop of files and picture attachements. E.g. simply right click copy of some image and then right click inser of the picture.
3) More than one attachement per post.
4) Much bigger PM storage.
5) More tolerance for time-outs. It is really annoying when you type a longer post and get timed-out and lose your text.

That would increase the quality of life considerably for all forumnites. It would especially help with AAR making, and at least to me AARs are what stirs up interest in a new game before I buy it.



Regards
EvK

Just give us warning . . .

Would that include the engines of any aircraft that you are flying on? It may be exciting but not fun . . .

That depends on who's on the plane, and how much insurance I have on them.

You are on it at 30,000 feet with no parachute available and it does not have good glide characteristics. Nothing else matters.

Speaking as 007, I'd steal a parachute from a bad guy and whistle the theme music on my way down.

I thought the forum had already been updated just now - and that was it?

There has been a plan for years. So far we haven't had the time to implement the plan...

The Matrix forum is ancient and really needs to be updated to a modern system like PHPBB. We don't have an ETA yet.

Of course, one of the best ways to quiet a baby is to shove something in their mouth . . .

Why? Less is more. No need to spoil that which is already perfect.

Perfect, my . . . eye. It can't even handle .png image files.
