I guess maybe it's because I'm using my phone, but they're all in the right place for me

Introductions for some reason are still showing up as unread topics for me. Don't know if anyone else is still experiencing it.

Marking the Forum as read should do the trick.

I have to modify some PHP code later so the new post counter doesn't include them, but clicking new posts will not display them in a list anymore.

I like the avatars, names, etc on the right side.

I like it on the right side, too.
Kinda feels easier to read, since we start reading from the left and nothing is in the way.

It would be really nice if links would open in a new tab rather than in place. Not sure what version you're using, but looks like the default starting with phpbb3 is to open in place and not in new tab.

If your mouse has a wheel, usually clicking the wheel on the link defaults to open in new tab. I'm not changing default for forum to open in new tab.

Is it possible for "new posts" to reflect being the new posts since the last time you logged onto/visted the site, rather than all posts that you haven't read? Right now I have 260 unread posts... no offense, I just don't plan on reading every single introductory thread, etc.

Also, is an expanded profile page available? Would be nice to be able to link to your Twitter handle, etc.

As you can see above I'm working on weeding out the intro posts. If you click the link they don't show up. The counter is off until you mark read.

Twitter is in your profile as is Facebook, YouTube and more.

It's something that can be moved. If enough people don't like it, I'll move it.
I'll add my vote too. Absolutely detest avatars and names on the right.

Is starting new topics on Belt-a-pedia not available for normal members? I wanted to start IWGP threads but couldn't.

That forum is set to reply only. I am the only one who can start new topics.

I don't want every belt being listed yet. Get information posted about the big belts, then I will add more.

i dont know why, but i love it too :D :D

and yeah dan, i guess the "online"banner is blocked by the avatar on some members, and some can see partially maybe it would be better if you move that banner infront of the avatar. cheers

Ok, so if I make you guys shrink your avatars, I bet I'll have people bitch about that....

how about you put the banner infront of the avatar rather than behind the avatar?

or maybe put the online status under the username would be another option?
