after looking around for a bit, i found tab mix plus the stupid option to open everything with a target-attribute in the same tab (unregarded of value :? )

Have you ever considered having a forum for people who speak different languages such as french of german. In my experience these are used, not as much as the rest of the forum but it does give a place for the people who otherwise may illegible posts in the other sections, i could help with the french one if you were interested, just an idea.

This site is for English speaking television shows, so if you watch them, by definition you know English, correct?

Correct, but because it is viewed all around the world english may be a second langauge for some people and therefore they may wish to discuss things in their own languages where they can fully understand what is being said.
Its just an idea but i take it your not interested?

No, not particularly and unless there is a widespread want for it.

It'd get hugely repetitive for some, as they'd speak both English + Other language and want to keep up on both...alot of reading.

It was having issues this morning. We rebooted it later in the morning and all was better. :)

Is it impossible to edit a poll, even before anyone has voted? Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it....

Probably. I didn't want people changing polls after people voted.

Just report the post and have a mod take care of it.

Not sure if it's just me or not, but the multi-quote function is not working at the moment.

Requires Javascript and it may take a moment or two to switch icons as it's done via AJAX.

I just got thinking since Tweeke (and his FTP) returned - what about an FTP sub-section? We have enough FTPs to warrant one, I'd imagine.

Just an idea...

Sounds like a GREAT idea. I mean, the whole point of sub-forums... ^_^

EDIT: Done! Moved some of the threads -- move any others I missed please.

have you considered enabling auto-prune for the request section? threads could be deleted automatically 30 days or so after the last reply...just a suggestion, it's something I've seen at other forums with request sections, and I think it makes sense
