Anyone that has any suggestions, post em here. I won't be the one handling them, but hopefully the admins/mods can take care of them for the rest of us!

Here are some suggestions that I came up with:
-Rename the "General" thread to "DasDubbers Garage", add "Off Topic" to the sub-heading
-Move the "Classifieds" heading above the "Generations" heading (Similar to the old forum)
-Port over the "Spotted Thread", "Who Are You?" Thread etc.
-Fix the PM feature, still doesn't work at all for me
-Add the 16x16 DD gear or VW symbol favicon to the site so that it shows up beside the tab/bookmark in the browser (The DD gear seems difficult to scale so the VW symbol could work)
-Make the entire contents of the forum sit on the left hand side, allowing text/pics and other extended objects to stretch over to the right hand side if necessary

This is just what I've gathered while using the forum and comparing it to the old DD (Which I loved the layout of)

-forum contents being on either side is completely "theme" dependent. "prosilver" is the only theme that has the names on the left. I will see If I can switch it but I don't think you can (I prove myself wrong everyday however)

-i just fixed the pm's thanks to your post, it only affected certain users, however it should be all good now.

- Spotted and Who Are You, should just be new threads with new info and new pics, some people have diff usernames now anyway.

- I forgot to add the "gear" logo to the top so it shows up :)

- I will speak to other admin/mods about forum name changes/placement.

Big Ups to you for taking on the site change!!

Only Change i'd like to see is the posters name and info on the left side of the screen instead of right, but that's just me being picky and not use to it yet.

Edit- a diesel section too :geek:
