like in this thread should be replaced with I agree

I would post this in the wiki of each thread in the board, but instead, I'll put it here:

Generally, when I appreciate the idea of a DDF post, I push that small button under the post, aptly titled "like", so that the poster can get some recognition and know that people appreciate his/her contribution. I also use the button when I recognize that the DDFer exerted effort into bringing us the information contained in the post, and as a sign of gratitude, I hit the like button.

On this board, it has been increasingly difficult for me to hit the like button. How can someone like a post of this nature?  or  or  I therefore wish to make an open declaration, which I'm sure others will join me in asserting.
On this board, the like button does not connote that the contents of the post is enjoyed. Rather, it has taken on a new meaning:
"I feel for you; I care for you; I hope your pain goes away and only good news should be forthcoming."
I look forward to the day when the like button will retain its literal sense, but until then, know that a push on it means that we are with you, living this nightmare alongside you.

Has this been updated since DDF had 15 members and 25 replies was a smoldering hot topic?

We need to cancel 'normal' anyways

I think we need a Shutterfly Board. It may even be the board with the most threads on DDF.

In the My Messages Section (PM) could we have an option to see both outgoing and incoming messages at once? or have the conversation automatically quoted in a reply? (as if now afaik if someone replies without quoting the original message you have to go to sent messages to find it).
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

There are myriad things that can be done to improve the PM section, like making conversation mode (like you said) and adding the new "add image to message" to the interface.

I think that forum mods purposefully (and probably rightfully) keep the PM section outdated so that PMs should only be used when needed, and that users should not be encouraged to abuse it and harass other members.

I don't know if anyone else has this issue, or how many people it affects.
My browser blocks twitter. It lets through the actual wording of the tweet but that's it. (Netfree, if you must know)
Tweets in hebrew come through distorted, unicode like.
For Example this post
looks like this:
Anything to do? or live with it?
My filter has the option to allow twitter when embedded, same to youtube.

Techloq.

If only that was the reason..

Why / how is this users JS posts showing up under the regular post count? It didnít show 1 after the first post, only happened after the second.

I want a refund!





Now has 3 JS posts, 1 Gen. Dis. post, and a post count of 3.

Not sure how realistic this is, but I've often thought it would be neat to able to add some sort of flair for users (Reddit has this). Thought of it today again  ;)

What happened to Twitter on DDF?
