The number of posts in the main forum is getting a bit ridiculous. Some more sub forums would be great. How about one for Moding gear or Hitech Stuff.

There are already several subforums.
No need for more. If you check regularly you will be fine.

We are still working daily on everything, and I am testing a lot to find the bugs...still several around. Plus ideas keep coming and I have to learn a lot about the tools and admin stuff.

While you're at it, could you improve the language filter to also change the font or color of the text so that we know that an edit has been made.
Something like this: "Kite bans are created by nice persons.
Or this: "Kite bans are created by nice persons.

As it is now I sometimes read something that doesn't seem to fit. I realize it's the work of the language filter but not before losing my train of thought.

Thanks.

I don't think it is possible but will check.

But, actually it is simple: if someone is on a rant, an it shows "nice person"...you know what it means ;-)

Update: currently we are working on the mobile friendly part...the home and forums already work well, you will enjoy the new functionality.

And browsing all latest from the sport by just scrolling.

More info coming soon.

Great forum, and I'm sure 4.0 will be even better. Just one little suggestion if I may... can you automatically put all women's posts in women's forum? Not of all women of course, only when they deserve it? :D

Toby - I would appreciate "like" or whatever it might be called.
On the Polish forum I pushed for "beers". It was introduced two years ago ish.
Works perfect. New users can identify credibility of other users.
You can check a list who received or gave the most amount of "beers" (piwko in Polish)
http://www.kiteforum.pl/forum/thankslist?sk=e&sd=d

you can also check the most awarded posts and topics:
http://www.kiteforum.pl/forum/toplist

Every user got a number of given and received beers under his/her avatar.
It motivates users to write more valuable posts too.

I would add a full name of the user (voluntarily) below avatar as we got on the Polish foilforum:
http://www.foilforum.pl/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=11
Anonymous users got tendency to be more aggressive :idea:

Another idea :idea: - Annual Kiteforum Awards - using "likes" or "beers" you can carry out the poll among your users for example the best: video, picture, post, topic etc...

we did it on Polish forum and it was fun :)
