there is another good reason not to move threads around. If there is a post referring to a thread that has been moved it breaks the link. For example:

Good point - not sure if has already been done, but it would be cool to make a script which runs through the old posts and flags or perhaps even fixes broken internal links.

Thread IDs are persistant. A link should not break when the thread is moved.

Is this the thread you were looking for?

yes, that is the one I was looking for. The broken link was in the "FR8C enclosure recommendations" thread.

Just to verify that, i moved a thread that is pointed to by an external link to a new forum (and back). No matter where the thread was the external link was fine.

For my taste the "Report" button is a bit too much eye-catching and irritating, the logo could be a bit more decent.

It's been eliminated - I guess people were checking the box without actually conducting the search? Or it was too much trouble so people were posting less? There are some old threads here that pretty much contain the answers to most everything

What is the consensus on this - remove or retain?
Remove. I have seen an awesome AJAX alternative on other website where as you type the thread title it automatically searches and suggests threads for you, I'd like to implement that.

There will be a mobile version of the website in the future.

Expect some cool new buttons in the next few weeks.

I am unable to type ALT-codes anywhere on the page. Firefox 3.0.13, Windows XP SP2, etc. With numlock on, typing ALT+1 or etc. always links to some page (e.g., the index). ALT-codes can only be entered with numlock off.

In Internet Explorer 6, I can successfully type an ALT-code in the text box with numlock on (focus elsewhere on the page jumps the cursor to a link, e.g., ALT+1 goes to Home on the bar at the top of any page, which I suppose is intended behavior).

I search for threads where I have previously posted. Search criteria = Forum nickname
The new search only finds some of the recent threads and omits many from the results.
What am I doing wrong?
