    It might be convenient to do what I have always done, and keep a notepad file set aside specifically for the forums. I first type my comment in notepad, save, then copy it to the forum. When quoting multiple people, quote one person, copy/paste to notepad, repeat, rearrange if needed, and save. It becomes automatic after a while, and is not as complicated as it may sound. Major benefits of doing it this way is that in the 8+ years I've been with MI6C, I have never had to worry about losing large bodies of text while posting, and because it's saved, I can come back to it later and edit at will.

    It would be awesome if, when writing a comment, the programming just checked if the last post in the thread was yours, and if it was, automatically added it to the last post. Obviously if they could do this they would, but would make things much easier and make multi posting impossible.

    Hi guys,

    Can I get permission to start a 'NTTD prop/merchandise thread' in the 'No Time To Die (2020)' section? It'll be a spoiler thread, and there's lots of NTTD gear to flesh this thread out.

    Cheers
    QB

    Hey, guys. I just noticed when I tried to use the image URL link above to post a photo it failed me. Is there a glitch?

    Does whatever system that powers this forum offer a dark mode? Would be nice to have white text on a black background. One of the few websites I visit now that has a bright white background.

    You have to become part of the dark side of the Force to get that feature.

    I'd love one, I've wanted one for years.

    Who's in charge here? Maybe time to update the platform?

    Can't hurt to contact @MI6 and see if there are any updates or thoughts on the implementation of a dark mode.

    It's absolutely possible. They've set the color codes for the site in the stylesheet: https://www.mi6community.com/themes/mi6/design/custom.css?v=1.0

    It happens to me whenever my computer gets too cold. The downside is that all photos look like negatives as well.

    Switches most of the internet to night mode in Firefox. Not to be confused with the 'dark web'. Once installed, in the top-right corner of the screen, you can switch night mode on and off, or change the brightness.

    And here I thought I brought enough darkness here already.

    I sent a message to that @MI6 account but it looks like it hasn’t been online in two months. Is there a better way to contact whoever admins the forum?

    Fair point, @NickTwentyTwo, I'll get back to you shortly.

    @QBranch Looks fantastic! It also makes us look like AJB though...

    What platform are you on? For some reason, it doesn't work with cellphones. So stupid.

    Of course, the colors of our websites are interchangeable, aren't they, BMW? People won't know who we are. Just another fan site on their way to social media.

    And still bungling in the dark.

    The "dismiss" function on announcement threads-couldn t that be added to all threads? Once you inadvertently click on a thread, it gets tagged with a yellow sign with the number of new posts since last you visited that thread. This is very helpful when it comes to what threads have unread posts, but many of those are completely uninteresting. It would be easier to find what I am interested in if I could siphon out e.g. the football thread, the quote thread and so on.. Often you don t know what is interesting or not until you click on it. For others, there are surely other threads that have no interest and are just in the way. Those way back in older pages are no nuisance, only some of those that never stop although they should according to myself .

    If you have to add it separately for every single thread, then I understand why it won t happen. I am no Bill Gates.( I mean computer whiz, not medical expert)

    Or possibly a way to pin threads you like to the top of the forum? Then you can peruse new threads below for those you find interesting enough to add.

    Seems like to implement features like this would be to move the entire community to a newer, more modern and feature rich forum hosting service.

    Maybe one that includes a dark mode option. ;)
