Hi, my name is Brian and I help with the development of the Talkspot system. Many of the issues addressed in this thread do already exist in this BBS. Maybe they aren’t clear enough, although they are standard based on the BBS systems I have used. For instance, there have been requests for ordering items in certain ways. You can order threads, messages, or whatever in any order you prefer. Just click on the heading – click it a second time and it’s in descending order. Multiple sorts are supposed to be supported, but noticed that doesn’t seem to be working.
In the thread view, you can quickly determine which threads contain messages that you have not read by looking at the New column. It displays the number of messages that have not been read (new to you).
Personal preferences may come at a later date, but like Ken mentioned, just let us know what you would like to see and we can review the requests to determine if they make sense for this site’s target.
