It's already on my list.

Another request:
'Mark as read' button. On most forums, the read/unread marking tends to go off sometimes, that button allows to clear it quickly. Everything is then marked as read and you don't have things you read/are not interested in popping up as unread.

I think we've discussed the possibility of something like this before. I'll take a look.

Possibility of read/unread getting messed up, or possibility of getting a button?

Another request: making QUOTE button work when you copy text and have it highlighted instead of putting tags at the end... Same with highlighting part of your post and trying to make it bold/italic/underlined/other colour...

The idea of better selection of avatar is nice. I mean by that preview of chosen picture. It always bugged me that I cannot see it until I go out of profile option.

Agan, that's probably something we'll have to look into.

I seek clarification... When you highlight text and select quote or whatever, it adds the tags at the end, instead of around, the text? If so, what browser are you using? I've used IE 6,7, and 8 for accessing the site, and it's never done that to me -- it always puts the tags around the highlighted section.

Yeah, the tags land at the end. I use Firefox newest version.

Ah, okay. Firefox was my secondary browser for a while, but now I only have it on one of my work machines -- and I barely touch it, on that machine. It's only there for troubleshooting.

Yeah, I assumed this might be Firefox versus IE issue. Still worth looking into.

Errr... You can see your own post count on your profile page. It's right there under "GENDER," as part of the BASICS details.

Might it be a cookie issue? Like your browser isn't saving them or something?

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

I think Ashe has the right of it. You might want to check your browser settings.

Another idea: gender sign below username. It would help to avoid 'young male adults' (quote from Zanan) and other such comments.

My biggest suggestion?

An off-topic area.

I love the `Keep, and I know I share many similar interests with others here that are NOT Forgotten Realms related and to have an area where we can discuss some of those things without derailing other scrolls (most recently, a BattleTech discussion) or by 'wedging' it into other areas (I try to keep my Pathfinder threads to the 'Core Products' area).

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

The concept of an "Off-Topic" shelf for Candlekeep has been a long debated one. There's always been a section of the community here who feel that such an area of the site would be a welcome addition, and others who feel that it would distract from the singular focus of this site.

For myself, I'm kinda in the middle. I'd love an "Off-Topic" shelf. But at the same time, I'm always weary about the prospect that the OT section will end up seeing more activity than the rest of the site. On the plus side, however, is the fact that we only have a small and regularly dedicated number of scribes who visits these halls daily [or, sometimes, as in my own case, hourly], so attention to all sections of the site should be fairly consistent.

Ultimately, the decision lies with Alaundo. And he's made it clear in the past that Candlekeep should remain solely for the discussion of the Realms -- specifically -- and D&D in general. As a counter to this, however, both myself and a number of other scribes have experimented with the possibility of incorporating a IRC/Chatroom feature for Candlekeep 2, which will allow for off-topicness. Alaundo has also expressed some interest in this idea, though we've yet to find any IRC software that will work well with the forum structure basis we have established for the update to the site.
