Hi,
Don't know how easy this will be with the vBulletin Lite software, but how about implementing some features commoonly ised on other less thorough forums to make it a bit more fun, here's a list:

Smilies - everyone has these now
The ability to edit posts
Editable user profiles - based around the information submitted when you register to use the forums.

These could include:
A person's real name
Their age
A message to other users
Their location
Gender (Is it me, or is IT very male-dominated?)
A link to their e-mail

What does everyone else think?

Could the login have a checkbox "remember name" or something like this?

I meant a checkbox so that you don't have to login at every visit.

And also the ability to post tabbed code maybe? We're on programming boards, after all.

This is possible through the browser settings alone, if you use Netscape, it pops up with a 'remember values entered for this field' option, you are then given a choice of about 3 buttons. IE also has an equivelant, but I can't remember what it's called...anyway try checking our browser preferences.

I've very nearly finished the new version of the website, I'm a bit busy at the moment, but I should have it finished and online very soon.

Cheers,

Mark

I kinda like the yabb forum more (www.yabbforum.com)
It's free and has more features than this I think.
This one is pretty good as it is now, but being able to edit your own posts is something I think should be added
