I can not believe, like someone is spying me.

Now, when I was preparing to do a picture,
instead of community stands forum :)

In any case we will present my proposal

This is how it originally looked
http://s10.postimg.org/tzvordxqh/forumivan1.jpg

In a previous post I stated the reasons for the change
http://s15.postimg.org/cuub4t6ej/forumivan2.jpg

to repeat them again:
In my opinion it should be marked. Like Quests page.

The word 'Community', in my opinion, should be changed to the word 'Forum'
Forum is a universal word!
I do not think everyone knows what exactly the word Community means, or in what context.
Especially for those who are not in English-speaking areas.

And now
If we consider the link as advertising,
we can conclude that it is was poorly done.
It is standing on the top of the page.This is true.
But it is not marked somehow.It blends into the environment.
So he loses significance.

In my opinion it should be marked. Like Quests page.

And in terms of good advertising for the forum I thought it should look like this

I'm sorry for repeating some of the things

Sadly at this time this won't happen. But that's an interesting suggestion ivanxxxxxx. :)  Let's see how things go with the text change, and go from there.

Also, speaking to the edit button.  It's something we've been discussing, but the main flaw with it is the ability to troll other people by editing your previous post.  Possible restrictions may be a time-limited edit, or show past versions of what was edited.  Or maybe even restricting it to moderators or admins.

If you do make it so previous versions can be viewed, it would need to be hidden until you press a button that says something along the lines of "Pre-edited".

You'll have to trust the community. I visit another forum that's much larger than this one and their edit button works well, little to no problems with users editing their posts to troll others. They don't have any restrictions, but the admins and mods can see the edits.

You could make it so that you can edit it only to the point that someone posts after you - though a timer would be nice as well. Just a thought.

GhostOfMatrix - While you may not see issues, might they still exist behind the moderator curtain? I'm not saying we're against it, but we are cautious.
