    I figured I'd start a thread that would contain any questions about features, potential features, or suggested features of the "new look" software for Baptist Board. This might be convenient for Sean to have them all in the same thread.

    1. Will there be the capability for animated .gif avatars?

    2. Will there be buttons on the menu bar (above the post window)?

    3. Can the time delay between posts and/or searches be reduced or ideally, eliminated?

    Anyone else?

    Oh, please no. I'm already on the verge of turning off avatars (because too many people look exactly like I expected them to). Animated gifs would seal the deal.

    Looks as if posts made to the particular forum are not editable once they are posted.

    Would like for the "PREVIEW" option to be on the page of response posting rather than having to go to " MORE OPTIONS" to access.

    Meant to say, "will there be quote buttons on the menu bar?"

    4. Will posts in this forum be made editable?

    Wish there were a better selection of emojis. No laughing one...

    Yep, put it on the wishlist. I would think it would be an easy add-on or plug-in to the forum software.

    I wish there was a consistent way to tell if you've posted in a thread when you are looking at the subforum index. Right now it shows your avatar next to the thread title, but apparently only for a day or so. After a while the avatar no longer shows up. I know about the "Watched Threads" feature but I wish there was an indicator next to the thread titles to show if you had previously posted in that thread.
