The modifications refer more to improvements, not criticizing...
These are some suggestions that might can improve the forum.

----------- E D I T B u t t o n-------------

It is generally known that the absolute majority of users wants Edit button!
Mistakes are possible, we all make mistakes.There is no unmistakable user.
We all want sometimes to fix or correct the post that we made.For example, I missed to tell something, and I think it's important, I'll have to post it again.
And not everyone is good with English grammar and spelling, and when he noticed that something is wrong, he can correct it.

In any case, Edit button would improve the quality of posts.

But since abuses are possible, there should be a time limit in which the modifications are possible! Or other limitations, for example you can only correct the last post that you made. Or is it required to put the reason for the correction.

It also can serve as a preview of the post!

---Who is online and who is offline?---

I think this can be useful.

----------------------------------------------
More advanced function would be:

Subscribe to a topic, and receive an e-mail alerts when something new appears

I have much more in my mind, but for now I do not have a solutions for
possible abuses

There should be an ability to edit your post in case you made a typo...

I don't know if this is suggested before (Cuz i'm new to the site), but that would help a lot.

A forum history button to let you see what you post on frequently or where your most recent posts were.

Post editing is planned for the future and is, and has always has been, on high demand.

As for the forum history I forget whether or not it's planned but it is another thing that is on somewhat high demand so it is likely to come eventually.

html??


HTML is enabled in abouts. The admins already tried enabling HTML in the forums and comments, but they disabled it in those areas because of abuse.

I was thinking about communication improvement,not only on the edit button,when I write something on the forum I would like to know who is online and who is offline.

Code tags. Because just pasting code looks ugly, is hard to read and screws over the formatting.

Also, spoiler tags.

Also, spoiler tags.


Just put this,
http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lxuvihJwAX1r3ovdbo1_250.gif
at the beginning of each post with spoilers.

Definitely needed features.

Online status on forums: so you know if you can expect a response soon.

Edit button: for eliminating those stupid little spelling errors, or for updating the OP with new information, especially useful if FRPGs where you may change the rules.

Spoiler tags: so you don't ruin something for someone because they innocently read your post

Code Tags: so you post easily readable lines of code for feedback.
