Site future: Brainstorming phase

#11
I would like to be able to view recent activity and today's posts without having to login because sometimes I’m using my phone or even someone else’s device.

I don’t like the look of the current font displayed in italic. When I feel the need to use it, I usually change that portion of the font to Georgia because it’s easier on the eyes.

I would also like a section in the new members thread under important threads that we could direct them to in order to show them how to use the BB codes. It’s often difficult to indicate how it functions because when you’re typing it, it defaults to the actual function. One way that you could do this would be to display a snapshot like so.

In your User CP>Your Profile>Edit Options, if you set Default Thread Subscription Mode to "No notification", it will just populate your subscription list: https://www.scivillage.com/usercp.php?ac...scriptions

Even in a "no notifications" and disabled state, my subscription list actually has a lot going on it in, apparently. But like SS I swing by a majority of the time without being signed in (automatically clear cookies & browser data after each session on the web, anyhow). That may be why I rarely visit my user account except when there's a PM alert or I change an avatar -- I'm used to either glancing over the board itself or "Recent activity" so much, due to lack of being logged-in.

Judging from the initial samples of the apparent switchover, though, the font size of "Georgia" -- or whatever the "new one" is -- needs to be increased. What's italicized is tiny compared to the rest of the text.

Krike, I never considered how "unreadable" some of our choices for font colors in individual posts might be with a different default background color or a customizable option in member's accounts for that.
