Re: "Official" integration with Akismet

Preventing users from posting links until they have X number of posts too... 8-) That could be a simple permission that I proposed a while back that ...

Re: Allow Bookmarking Posts

-1 on this. All you have to do is click the *post* title, and bookmark it in your browser. You now have yourself a bookmark, problem solved. :P No need to reimplement features that are already in your browser.

Re: WYSIWYG Editor/Rich Text Editor

Please try to stay civil about this. The development team has already made their decision to try and include a WYSIWYG editor in 3.2. We've already taken into consideration the discussions brought up here (and so we will have the option to disable it if you do not wish to use it). Remember, if you ...

Regardless, if it's no longer needed in 3.1, then we should think about removing it (assuming most will agree).

Re: [RFC] Smilies in a dropdown box

+1. Some boards I go on that have a lot of smileys are super annoying when you have to browse through a popup. Who even uses popups these days? :P

Re: [Define New Theme] 8. Utilize Font Awesome icons where icons are needed to simplify server requests.

anyone knowledgeable enough to use an extension to block adds is also knowledgeable enough to know why this is occurring.
