    That while threads will only alert you once on new posts until you check the thread again. Statuses don't have such restriction pelting you with alerts all over.

    Whenever I make a post, go to bed, and receive a bunch of quote alerts, I always think "Oh jeez. I've really pissed off this site now!" :eek:

    New threads that are flooding sub forums with posts that really should be kept into the "Whining and Crying" threads. Mainly, the GT Sport sub forum. I get that there's plenty of people upset, but there's no need to create new threads titled "why I'm canceling my preorder", "Kaz should be fired", or "this is laughable."

    I'm really annoyed with having to scroll all the way to the top of a very long thread to access the home page. If there was a simple home button at the bottom of the desktop page, that would be a perfect QOL update. I disabled the sticky header because it was almost impossible for me to use on the mobile site (and as you're all aware, when you check that option, it's selected for both platforms). I don't have problems scrolling on mobile because I can tap the top of the screen and it instantly jumps up. My computer does not have that unfortunately.

    @Dan -- The Home key works, at least in Firefox. I turned off the sticky header too because it's just annoying and intrusive.

    Oh hey, let me revive this thread! :D

    I hate it when members @ some others who has the same opinion as him/her, so they could attack the person who has an opposite opinion.

    Speaking @ing, when someone quotes you and @s you. Minor thing but like, I already get the notification you're quoting me you don't need to @ me. :p

    One incredibly minor thing for me is the fact the "@" doesn't disappear after tagging. Because well, if you had to read a post as it was, it would be something like "Less give a special thanks to "at Jordan"!" and it's kind of awkward to read. I tend to read posts like this and that's why I take the time to edit it out after I am done tagging.

    I imagine it's the way the forum software is setup. Again, it's only a minor annoyance and while it don't bother me as much as it used to, i'd prefer it if it disappeared after tagging like it does on Facebook.

    This...every danged word of this. It's not just Flickr, either. Want to give credit to someone (yourself included)? Great! But do it separately from the image.

    I've participated in a number of forums for various things over the years (even though I don't actually play GT anymore, that's what ultimately brought me here and I've lingered because of the community), and as images could be embedded directly into posts rather than as attachments, there's either been a general agreement that they ought not be hyperlinked or an end to the convention has been requested.

    There's a user on here who shan't be named (please don't name them if anyone thinks they know who, and if it's you, either take the hint or don't, but please don't respond other than by taking the hint; this is a gripe, not a confrontation) that hyperlinks images the vast majority of the time, to the point that I've started looking at names before clicking to expand while browsing. It bugs me that it's come to that.

    On the other hand, there's another user that posts their own pictured and applies credit to them neatly and consistently under every single one--that's how it ought to be done.

    --------------------------------------------

    Oh and Dan, I've done a deep dive here but I apologize if being quoted as having said something ages ago is a pet peeve of yours.

    :p

    You said it much better than I did. :p It would be great if the uploaders could find a way to remove the hyperlinks from pictures while still providing a link to their gallery somewhere in the post (or in their signature).

    You absolute MONSTER! Don’t worry, it’s cool. I’ve had people quote something I wrote several years ago. You’re fine. :lol:

    Only one thing, alerts not being redirected to the correct post. Most of the time I have to search for my posts members liked or quoted.

    It was intended in jest, but I'm glad it's not a problem.

    :p

    However there is indeed a problem with that post, brought to my attention by it having been quoted...

    Good grief! The Department of Redundancy Department approves.

    It's easier to just grab whatever size of the image you want to share from Flickr and imbed it here than it is to A.) Upload full size image B.) Downscale image yourself and then upload it here.
