I already posted this in the General forum, but there's been no reply in that forum. For this (and other) reason(s), I'm starting to doubt that forum traffic and reply notification is working reliably ATM, and since I just noticed that comments on the web site were fair game in this forum, I'm reposting it here.

Until recently, I have always used the "View - Normal" and "Messages since - All" option to display postings in a forum. But then I got fed up with having to scroll through several pages to get to the thread I was trying to keep tabs on, so I changed the second option to "Messages since - Last week". Any threads that have been kicked off since last week display correctly: ordered, complete and with horizontal separators. But display of postings from threads kicked off prior to last week is buggy in two regards:

- no horizontal separators between threads
- worse, the indentation is mixed up between threads (this may be an illusion caused by lack of horizontal separators)

It's not a showstopper obviously, but it could usefully be attended to.

There are *issues* with the forum system that have only come to light as the number of posts has increased. I think we may look to replace it at some point.

Any "progress" on the replacement "issue"? I've got a few gripes with the system as well (I'll be happy to share them if you want). One system that I've seen that works "pretty well" is mwforum (www.mwforum.org). I'm only a user of other sites that use it, other than that I have no connection with, no financial gain, etc. It has a few "issues" as well, but not nearly as many as what's currently in place here...

Just my $0.02
