    You have to be staff to have one of those. And no, that was not an offer.

    I've made two changes to the forums - 1: the link at the top goes to the home page. 2: the sub navigation and forum name is now "Halflife2.net Forums".

    Woo!

    I'd like to see some of the characters that show up as "?" fixed (pound symbol being the most frequent case that I've noticed.)
    ?????

    And I'd like you to consider enabling the strikethrough font effect for post's.

    And while our UserCP's "Edit Your Details" page has the field, "Steam Community ID" I'm not sure if the link you can fill out there shows up anywhere.

    I can't think of anything else, the site's pretty much perfect I suppose :thumbs:

    Increase the dammed PM box size, as well as the avatar size.
    Also I should be a super moderator.

    Also, why bigger PM boxes lol? Why not just hit ctrl and scroll Mouse3 to the appropriate zoom level?

    I really hope that was a joke darling.


    If not, he's talking about the storage capacity.

    I would suggest a reputation system that another forum that i visit has. Too much negative rep sends you into a "day care" forum. I fear it would be abused though.

    100x100 avatars would be an improvement.
    It's been that way for five years.

    Lol no it hasn't, it used to take you to the forum index, now it takes you to the main HL2.net page, Munro even announced the change in this thread.

    100x100 is rather large. HL2.net's always been nice and small like that. A 64x64 compromise wouldn't be half bad. I believe you're asking about bug-fixes rather than improvements, though.

    I'll pay you ?100 to fix the GBP symbol.

    That was an exception. Most of the time I've been here clicking on the HalfLife2.net banner took you to the main page.

    50x50 is fine, I just want more KB, instead of 30 something like 100KB.

    Also what about that gallon of milk you were supposed to pick up?

    Fix the wiki so that people can log in and make changes. Or just remove it altogether since no one has made a single change to it in months because of the inability to log in.

    The old HL2 picture at the top, with Gordon as a silhouette and dog on the left side, it was way better.

    Also might be a bit much, but a new skin or 2 would be nice rather then blue or tan.

    Could I request the forum button on the right of the main website be replaced with an actual button?

    A way to view past poll results. If you click on the link it just says "View our past polls from the main page", which isn't true.

    The characters issue is a server issue. Until we get our web server upgraded we have to put up with this.

    Strikethrough is added - use [strike]


    No. People abused it sadly and wont be returning.

    PMs - no. Just delete stuff. Don't forget your sent messages count towards your total. Avatars have been increased to 70x70 and 60kb

    Click the expand button on the post bit.

    No.

    Example?

    Possible abuse. May look into though.

    Big job will be done this week.

    Anyones welcome to make a new header image or skin for the forums ;)

    I'm crap at graphics but if someone makes a decent one I'll add it.

    All fixed now, cheers.

    He has brought larger avatars upon us.
