    This is what I said we'd want in "Forum--search function" thread. I'll repeat it here.

    In addition to the three search options Vesta suggests (above), also please include "New Comments since last login". They could all be flagged or marked when the forum Topics open.

    We'd really like to be able to search by username and by keyword so we can locate previous conversations.

    We want what Jay above wants.

    Yes, enabling a Signature [via each member's Profile?] would be good.

    Some of our members have taken to "adjusting" their names to compensate for the absence of a Signature on each of their posts to the discussion forums. (Yes, it's kind of annoying when they do that).

    Our previous site permitted setting up a Signature in one's Profile, and also offered these options for using it on posts to the forums: 1. Always use my Signature; 2. Ask me each time I post a comment if I want my Signature to appear.

    (sorry - originally posted on 6/13/11 in General Discussions. I think it's a good solution.)

    Yes, that is the case. But by the 3rd and 6th and 15th commenter on a thread, they must delete yards of paragraphs before they can even start their comments. It's extremely distracting and some of our members have said it makes them think twice about posting comments.

    However, if instead of "Reply" you use "New Comment" it works the same way as this 'quick reply' in your user support forum. -- a new box opens for us to make a comment and it doesn't quote previous entries in the thread.

    The name "New comment", though, doesn't make it clear that that's what you'll get... or maybe, that button's location is dopey. Our members don't recognize what it offers them, maybe it's because they don't notice it 'segregated away' from the comments boxes

    Instead of Edit | Delete comment | Reply in each message header, that function should move up into the header so it says:

    Edit | Delete | Reply | Quote - where Reply should just give you a new box in the thread, without any quoted text, And Quote could be the new more accurate name for what "Reply" currently gives you.

    Now that I've thought that through, I believe it's really a good solution. I hope you can make this change easily and quickly. Thanks. - fb
