Good idea, though this is just going to exacerbate the issue with the table being too wide. It isn't too immediately straightforward how to get that from the DB yet, though.

I was thinking about removing the "Started at" column from the table, does anyone find that useful anyway?

I am definitely not going to be adding customization functions like that.
Use your browser's zoom functionality.

Thanks for the pinned threads. When entering a username and password, the TAB order goes from "User Name" input to the "Link" label to "Password" input.

Not sure if there's a reason for this, but I think "User Name" to "Password" is more logical.

Done, added a tabindex="-1" to the Link tag to exclude it from the tab order.

@hcs: Okay, fair enough. One other thing I'd like to request: Email notifications, or at least notifications of some kind. It's hard to know when someone replies to a thread, even if they mention me. I'll sometimes go days at a time without noticing, especially if the thread is very active!

I see how notifications would be nice, but also not likely to be added. Email is a huge pain, and I don't want to add another table tracking who is watching what.

There is the asterisk indicating that a thread or post was updated since your previous login (I think that's how it worked...), do you find that helpful? I could add a search for "posts since your previous login" which would complement that somewhat.

I think it would be good if the OP of specific forums can edit their first post indefinitely in order to update specific sections. This would help josh's archive thread and the instrument section, since tracking down a certain topic of interest would take longer than it should.

I was considering to have a spreadsheet ready on the first post for those that want to search for their specific sample albums or games that used a particular instrument in a much easier fashion for the instrument thread as an example.

Is this a possibility?

Always-editable posts are implemented, I just hardcode the post id into the forum. The josh archive thread was the only one enabled, but I've gone ahead and added the instrument list thread OP as well. Edit via this link.

Is it possible to implement timezone conversion? It should be doable client-side.

Also, imo showing who last replied to a thread is more useful than who created the thread.

I don't want to do any JavaScript on this forum, sorry.

I agree that the last replying user thing would be nice to have. Unfortunately I suck at SQL so I'm having a hard time getting that working without taking too long.

Yeah, I can't blame you for not bothering with email. Is there another service that would be easier to set up notifications for? Twitter? RSS feeds?

Is there some way you could have a third party handle it? I dunno. Most of these threads usually use vBulletin.

Anyway, yeah, the asterisk thing would be sweet if you could implement that at least. Or maybe a little icon saying "NEW" to the left of the hyperlink? I dunno, I'm not a design guy.
