It may sound silly, but the first thing I noticed when posting is... I miss all my smilies! I keep typing in codes for ones we don't have lol. Otherwise I like it so far! I like that it's more simplified - makes quick browsing and posting easier!

One of the best things about this site is the size. Right now its perfect. I'm sure when it gets bigger u'll have to expand the forum a little with more parrot specific catagorys...but all good for now. I'm glad to be a part...were gonna make this baby huge!!

Not silly at all! Smilies are an important aspect of any community, and make it much more exciting and fun!

This is definitely on my to-do list. We are still in our very nascent stages, and there are plenty of things to be done still.

Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks! I do like the simplicity in the beginning. And as you said, as time goes on the growth will dictate the need for expansion.

Thanks for the suggestions so far everyone. Smilies will be added in due time. If there are any specific smilies you want to make sure get added to the list, just add them as an image.

Just added a boatload of parrot-icon smilies: ...just to show a few.

And a couple of other neat smilies:

The only thing I am confused about is automatically being subscribed to a thread when you post, isn't that usually an option?

Other than that I am already in love with the forum

Hi Dave and Nick
Great job. I miss the "thanks" for a post. Will it be added in the future?

Here, we use the "did you find this post helpful" alternative, which is below the buttons where "Thanks" usually appears.
