Go to www.delphi.com/ellis . You'll need to get a login name, but some of the best message boards on the net.

I just realised you coded this board yourself, no offence meant. Other than delphi icon board is pretty good (example, http://www.neonwheels.com/cgi-bin/ikonboard/ikonboard.cgi)

What do you (or others) hate most about the board layout?

The advantage of coding it in php is that I can modify it without having to start again (unlike the previous Perl incarnation).

"What do you (or others) hate most about the board layout? "

The massive reply field appearing every time you read a message. Only being able to read one message at a time.

This isn't something that's bothered me here, but I do like boards that take the last post to the top of the page even if it's on an older thread.  That way you can keep discussions going for a while if they get interesting.

Give me a few days and I'll have a 'read thread' option in place. I'll have a think about the reply field.

Okay, a view thread option is now in place, plus the category turns bold if the message is less than 24 hours old.
