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I think that forum mods purposefully (and probably rightfully) keep the PM section outdated so that PMs should only be used when needed, and that users should not be encouraged to abuse it and harass other members.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

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  ;)

Is there a mod that allows a custom list of newly replied topics, of the topics I choose?

For those without access to telegram, you can try this webpage

Let me know if it works for you!
Now we need it installed onto/into the forum.
There's room for more buttons.
True, although a button in post editor might make more sense and should be about the same.
You mean like the "Add image to post" button. that's a great idea!

Can we incorporate a bot that automatically posts "boo Milts" anytime someone mentions Milts? It would save hardworking DDFers much time and effort...

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

We need a feature that only displays posts with more than X number of likes (to be set by the user).

Imagine you were busy at work for two days and you come back to more than 50 pages of a thread "War in Israel." You want to see what the DDF thinktank had to say about it, but you don't have an extra 4 hours to read through 50+ pages. So you should be able to check off, "only display posts with more than X likes," and mark for example "3 likes," and you'll get about 5 pages of the liked content. Still too much? Mark "6 likes," and you'll get 2 pages of the most liked content.

Great way to create an echo chamber and disincentivize people from giving likes to well thought out posts on opinions they don't want to promote.
