So far I noticed some things that arne't working.

On the search I searched for 70-528 and I get a popup 'Keywords may only contain letters and numbers'. I don't like me dash. I used to do this though, as these threads are burried in the deep bow...err, umm, deep levels of javaranch.

Ready for number 2?

52EIGHT) makes a smiley. I think you should change eightRightParenthesese from being a smiley code. That wasn't so bad, eh? (eight parenthesese) 8)

I'm sure 8 ) is typed up all the time. Oh geese, second edit and you're still left wondering why. Well, look what it did to my important sig that I'm sure many will want to read.


ho, ho, ho

Sorry, I'm back.

I can't remember if things used to be this way or not, but the thread view count increases every time I go int and view it. Some forums disable this so people can't bumpt up their threads so as to make it appear it has been viewed many times when infact it's the same gerbil pressing F5 a million times.


Oh, thinks are rockin' for the most part on this new design/hardware. This site used to be so bloody slow, as everyone knows. I wonder what would happen if the lovely dusty brown colors were replaced with something less flashy, like, say, a silver/blue theme, etc?

Thanks for the feedback.

You're right about the "8)" thing. I've removed that shortcut, since the icon with sunglasses is better known as "cool" from the UBB days. That was an unnecessary -and as it turned out troublesome- duplication.

As to the views column, we're already talking about that; there may be changes coming.

As to the search limitation, I've added an entry to http://faq.javaranch.com/java/SoftwareEnhancementIdeasAndSuggestions

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
