Can you give a full guide on how to use tables in the faq section, if it does work? I have to go trial-and-error to try it out.
So far I can only do the table indent, and that's all:
Tables never worked on the old forums (or at least how I understand them to on vBulliten), it hadn't crossed my mind to test them on the new forum.
No, still doesn't work how I understand them to, so if they work in a diffierent way, I'd have to check it out. There's such a little demand for them, it's never been a big priority.

Yes, I'm going to do a Fairy skin for the forum.
Okay, so... Should I hereby abandon all hope that links will someday become underlined?
That may happen after all the styles are done but don't hope too much on it. (Other people have also raised it too). I would want them to be clearer too though.

PLEASE remove the rule banning Super Smash Bros. threads in Nintendo Discussion.
This post speaks for me in this case.
I agree with everything stated in the post I linked to. It's been 3 and a half years now, and we can't discuss it in our social groups, where ARE we supposed to discuss it? In addition, it has been confirmed that another game in the series WILL be released, when more details come, well... again, where are we supposed to discuss it?
(ducks to avoid tomatoes that may come my way)

ching and fighting, and they never end well. Just look at the last one, there was pages of debate and flaming. People seemingly aren't able to control themselves enough to post properly.
It's really up to the mods, but the last thread showed that nothing good comes from those threads.

Smash threads are banned because SPPF members don't know how to control themselves in them, it's doesn't matter how long the rule has been there, mods have made exceptions to the rule multiple times in the last three years and the same thing has happened.

I made the suggestion for a reason - the post that initiated the ban said 'Till then, you all have social groups, use them.' We don't even have those now, so where the h*** are we supposed to discuss the game?
Spoiler: other forums exist.
People are clearly unable to discuss SSB here, but I'm sure that there are forums galore out there where they can.

Despite what I said above (and yes, it's true unfortunately), the unfortunate fact is, I've seen those arguments happen. So in reality, there really is no telling if they'll start up again. Maybe they won't, but given what I've seen here, they could. That is why I can't directly suggest re-allowing those threads. Maybe if there was a section with <groan> rules to prevent that. And then the site becomes even LESS streamlined.
But at the same time, arguments could start for almost any reason on this site. For instance, bring up move limits in the Anime section and you'll turn most threads into arguments, almost guaranteed. You won't even be meaning to do it, but it'll still happen. I've seen this happen here too. I've been there when it's happened, and I'm sure the Mods have too. That Spyro thread in the games section where Joe had to personally intervene to stop an argument that had gone borderline flame war. That Sonic Overrated thread that seems to have been made just to solely bash one or two members. These are just examples. It can be anything.
And therein lies the trap, and by extension, my point. What do you do? Do you just ban discussion about everything that could potentially start an argument? You wouldn't have much of a forum if you did that. Do you let it go and have it turn into a flame war? Not exactly a pleasant alternative. So yeah, not an easy issue.

Furthermore, "bring back Smash threads" is hardly constructive criticism. As jb#s and I have said, SSB threads invariably spiral into a cesspit of spam and arguing. It's not the mod's fault that people her are too immature to handle it properly.
Maybe if you could actually back up your "constructive criticism" things would be changed, but so far all you've said is 'BRING BACK SMASH THREADS'. Also, you can't see the mod forum, so complaining that your criticisms are ignored really falls flat on its face, doesn't it?
And I'm not saying to bring back those threads. I understand full well why they're not allowed.
But it's like I said, arguments can start about anything, whether it's move limits in the Anime section, Sonic, or Spyro, or the banned Pokemon Smogon lists. Where is the line drawn on this? Do you just disallow talk about anything that could start an argument? You wouldn't have much of a forum if you did that. So yeah, all I'm saying is it's not an easy issue. If I had a point to make, there it is, plain as day.

The arguments in that thread started because most of that forum didn't like those 2 users. With smash, everyone is fine until someone says something like "Cloud should be in the next SSB", then it all falls apart from there.
Just like they have on Steam, there should be an arrow beside the names of everyone who has ever had a name change beside their name on their profile. When you click this arrow, it brings up a small list detailing all of their past usernames.
That system is relativity new, and doesn't track names before they implemented the system, plus the Steam Profile isn't VB4, it's the Steam system. I used to be Windytwit several years before I changed to Nutter, but it isn't listed. Mind you at that time, All I had was a profile with no games. But then all there was TFC and CS:S, only a few month as Orange box.
Actually, Valve still uses VB3 for their forum known by Kritzkast team as SPUF.
We still have the name change thread around.
How about increasing the file size rule for signatures to 1 Mb, or at least for .gifs. It's a little irking when there are people with 500+kb gifs and the only reply I've heard on it is that the mods didn't see it or they have better things to do and that we should report it. If that's the case, then perhaps we have better things to do than report them.
And it's not just one person either, you can easily go into the the most populated in threads of GPD and pull out tons of people with obvious rule breaking sigs that they have had for weeks, even months. I know, I've actually done it. And that's a section with the most mods so the 'mods didn't see them' thing is kinda weird.

500kb is enough to lag my computer with my horrible school internet as it is, there's no way i'd be up for increasing the limit even more and make pages take twice as long to load. plus, there is just no need for such a massive file, 500kb is already large enough.
GIFs that are over the limit often dont get as noticed by mods or reported by other users because if you have fast internet, there often isn't a huge difference in load time between something that's like 200kb or 600kb, as opposed to something like a huge picture that will always catch your eye. but for me, i do notice a difference, and i always check the filesize if it looks like it's taking a longer amount of time than it should. for reporting signatures, if the way you're currently reporting isnt working, you can try pming the mods who post in the signature check thread as they tend to be the ones who deal with signatures more.
Okay, this seems fair.GIFs that are over the limit often dont get as noticed by mods or reported by other users because if you have fast internet, there often isn't a huge difference in load time between something that's like 200kb or 600kb, as opposed to something like a huge picture that will always catch your eye. but for me, i do notice a difference, and i always check the filesize if it looks like it's taking a longer amount of time than it should. for reporting signatures, if the way you're currently reporting isnt working, you can try pming the mods who post in the signature check thread as they tend to be the ones who deal with signatures more.
Doesn't seem right to opposed a suggestion based on the inconvenience of the minority.
