There are a few things I'd love to see in this forum. It's cool and all, but there's always room for improvement.

Customizable themes? I'd love to be able to make my own theme, but if new themes are added instead, that'd be fine too.

An IRC chat would be awesome. Maybe even a Skype group chat for all of us members (I could totally set that up if you guys wanted)! Just some form of chat would be nice!

More roles? No limiting current abilities, but maybe one or two trusted moderators to monitor offensive posts. I know that our awesome admin is online a LOT, but just in case (Spleen, I don't doubt your abilities, so if I offend you by saying this, I apologize). That is, if you logged a certain amount of time, you could do certain things or something. We shouldn't make it that much of a benefit, however, because that could turn off newer users. Just a little reward for dedicating so much time to the forum.
Moving on...
I have a new iPod 5, but when I went to the mobile version of Nerd forum, I couldn't log in. Just that one feature would be cool, although a total revamp would be boss as well.

I'll add suggestions to this thread as I come up with them. If any of them have already been suggested, I apologize for not paging through the forum to check, I'm really lazy. :P

The problem with having a bunch of skins is fragmentation as more features get added. It makes it hard to keep up.

I steer clear of chats, as they take traffic and posts away from the main forum and hurt it overall.

We have two other users besides myself that have mod powers. It's just not advertised.

I will however check into the mobile skin, it should be working. There's also tapatalk installed and IPB has an ios app.

If you take the time to actually make your own layout I don't think there would be any quabbles with adding it.

Alright, sounds good. However, I have another idea: can you make the Member bar (directly below the user's profile picture) color-customizable? Doesn't sound like much, but some of us love customizing every little detail. Thanks :D

I don't see what the big deal is to be honest. I've had no trouble using the mobile skin on my Kindle and compared to most forums, NF has a high level of customisation. I don't see the point in making any changes until we have a larger active user base.

So IMO it's fine as it is. =)

I just really like to have things customized. Is there a way that I can customize my end of the webpage? I'd love to make my own theme, I'd just LOVE IT! :D

Using an Extension? (Believe it or not I don't dabble in browsers at all, or even HTML coding. I'm an average Joe in that area.)

I like customazation as well. However, I'm just a new member so obviously my voice doesn't go as far as everyone elses xD but I can say I enjoy the current color and theme for what it is! :)
