    Things about the board software I don't like

    Maybe I am just slow (which is most likely the case)

    But is there a way to reply to a thread without using quick reply??? I can't stand quick reply...ergggg

    My last complaint...the search engine sucks...if you don't want to see repeat questions...you need to make the search engine more user friendly. example...I type in Hawke...NOTHING comes up about Hawke...I know there has to have been questions about her in the past. The same things happens no matter who I type in the search bar...it just does not work well.

    I am scared to even start a thread because people will be sarcastic and say...search engine dude...that question has been asked a thousand times. Well...I can't figure out how to use the search engine...lol

    If the search engine does work...please explain how to use it...and is there a way around quick reply that I am missing? Thanks

    Hi!

    Here are some tips that work for me.

    When you click 'reply' there is also a 'go advanced' button that will let you use an expanded reply section. There you can preview your post and stuff.

    I use the advanced search feature (right under the search box) and select to search keyword title vs keyword entire post. Plus this thread http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...he-MOTUC-Index is an Index thread that can help you find threads for a particular character.

    There are also many threads for more obscure character in the character support and speculation forum. I am pretty sure you can specify to only search that forum in advanced search as well.

    I am scared to even start a thread because people will be sarcastic and say...search engine dude...that question has been asked a thousand times. Well...I can't figure out how to use the search engine...lol
    I hear ya and I have been on some forums where that has happened to me, but not here though. If I have been redirected to an existing thread it has been done with respect by the mods.

    The only subtle nuance I can think of is that pre-sale discussion about figures, designs, accessories, etc... occur in their speculation/discussion thread but post-sale the discussion typically moves to the grouped together arrival thread.

    I hope that helps you navigate around a bit better, have a good one!
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    slackrguy covered most everything you need. In particular, the Advanced Search is needed to get forum-wide results. That's what is recommended and linked to in the Rules & Guidelines thread. It's really detailed.

    I will definitely agree with this. I love He-man.org, but it is definitely a very user unfriendly site for new users in terms of the way that threads are organized and restricted with a really wonky search engine. Everything else I like.

    I'd highly recommend using the Advanced Search. I find things usually very easily with that. Title searches are particularly helpful.

    I think it is really lame to display Marketplace Feedback for users underneath their avatars.

    Why would that be lame?

    I don't know. It just bugs me for some reason. Most people seem to have a score from 0 to 4.
    It's a case of too much information. For instance, I can see that your Marketplace feedback is 17 right now - as if I care

    the only thing that is wrong with the org is that there isn't a forum dedicated to the awesomeness that is me.

    You have a marketplace feedback of 0, and you're bragging?

    well that is only because I don't buy stuff from .org members or sell stuff to them. Apart from that minor detail I am super awesome

    I wouldn't mind having a negative % value myself, although I wouldn't be able to explain to anyone the math behind it

    Honestly we could just create one thread called "MOTUC" and post everything there .

    But in all seriousness, I would love there to be a way to delete photos out of my album. I have things in there that I really don't need, but cannot delete them. Sure I know that you can donate and receive more space, not ruling that out when I have a need, but when I have pictures stored there that I have no use for I would rather be able to ditch the clutter

    Plus Tis the Season to be broke, lol.

    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    I would like to see a separate forum dedicated to "Era Wars" arguments. Cracks me up when people make the argument that "their" He-man is better than someone else's. It really amounts to a very compelling religious debate.

    I am not sure if this has been brought up or not but I was posting in the Misc marketplace and had more than 10 pictures but due to the restrictions can only post 10, I really feel this should be increased alot, other sites I go on allows for upwards of 40 images, I would like to do a sale thread but would need way more than 10 pictures and did not want to flood the marketplace with tons of different posts, just a thought but the amount of images allowed shoulds be increased

    Thanks
    Ed

    We ask folks to use their photo albums and link to those if they have more than 10.
