KC: I believe that might be as I have changed the behaviour of new posts since your last visit, its now done on a post to post basis rather than cookies.

The database is watching you, be afraid.

However, as a result of that it may well have lost track of which threads you have checked in the last 15 days and flags them all as unread. Once you are pretty sure you are "up to date" just mash http://www.osnn.net/forumdisplay.php?do=markread and you should be set.

I still blame you, format!
Seems perhaps your the problem. :p That makes 3 times for this thread, but only after you've posted I think. Upon hitting "new post" link I was taken to the last post (you telling KC to mark all) ONT the post it should have (this one I'm quoting - all marked w/ grey page).

What link did you use?
Something from search or from one of the recent lists?
Sorry I was using the wrong link name, it's the "view first unread" at the beginning of every thread. (and your post is grey again - though the odd part is it takes me to it no problem)

Still working very hard on every aspect of the site that I can think of, but am going to take a quick look at the results as displayed here:
http://www.osnn.net/poll.php?do=showresults&pollid=264

Amusingly none of the people that claim to really hate it have given me any feedback at all.

Of the people that hate it a little bit, only Zero Hour has offered feedback and doesn't like the logo too much (I guess I need to stick a random pc in a circle after the name eh?) and previously suggested alt tags on the header images (sadly not images but styled lists, so I can't do that yet but may well take another look at the navbar a short way down the line), no real basis there for not liking the theme though.

Of the comically impartial crew, only X-istence has offered feedback suggesting that he likes it. So yeah, confused there.

Of those that like it a bit and like it a lot, love you all and I will keep working away. Since I started I haven't stopped, not shaved (pics incoming if demand is there, hmmm) and it fills me with pride to look at the site.

Ok back to work now, doing a few other bits not on the todo list and of course will see if there is anything else I can do on there later.

Recently, I overlooked what might happen when we posted a review so have created a system there which you can see there and Jewelzz has been churning out some reviews and I have some software reviews in the pipeline as well.

I also obviously had to prepare for the competition we have starting in a few weeks so have done some intereresting HTML work there, I am looking forrward to this one and am working hard for it, although I haven't thought about the competition directly yet.

Many of the modules on the frontpage have been gutted and rewritten specifically for my needs, by me, so if they break my fault, but at the moment they are working great. After much lateral thinking and code changes that had a 50/50 chance of breaking the site, I also got a frontpage rss feed working so fairly delighted there.

I wrote another fish blog, which was of course very exciting.

Added a new rank for affiliates, not so many of those at the moment but I have invited the Ivy Worldwide guys to sign up.

And so much more, basically if I get focused on one tiny aspect of the site and seem to work away at it for hours until it works as desired.

Ok, back to it.

Hold on there fella...there's always time to practice a little personal hygiene:laugh: especially if we are going to feel the love.:speechless:

What's to be confused about it, X likes it.

I like the nav bar at the top, it fits.

Oh, if you want to make me happy, make an entirely image-less layout ... I would love that.

Nah we need images really :D

More work done on backend really, so none you will really see.
VBSEO is in as you can see, so been working on a few bits there and seeing what other SEO bits I can easily get done.

Also finishing up short urls that members can use, such as :
[Coming soon] OSNN, Ivy Worldwide, Microsoft and HP Giveaway - OSNN Forum

edit: ok owned by vbseo :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
