Brandon,

First off, let me say that I love the new image gallery features, and I can't wait for more. And the logo. The new logo kicks %%%.

Now my suggestion:
A spell checker would make the forums so much easier to read (and to post). I'm not sure how you would implement it, or if it would make sense, but I often find myself clicking over to dictionary.com or google when posting, and sounding out unfamiliarly-spelled words when reading.

Also, I've never seen a spell checker implemented on an online community like this one, so I'm not sure if it's even a feature people would use. Just a suggestion - y'know - keeping you on your toes and all that.


<edit>

Hey check it out - it changed a questionable word into percent signs. You should have the filter turn it into "booty" or something. That would be cool. Or "donkey".

the % are defaults. put 'booty' there before you post, if you want it.


spell checking: there used to be one in vBulletin, but the service it used went to a pay-service instead of being free.

I can check around for a spell checker, but I don't plan on adding anything to the forums until vBulletin 3.0 is out. They are re-writing the code, and by the time I got anything else installed, 3.0 would be out and I'd have to re-write it anyway :)

Thanks for the suggestion

Brandon

Right before you post, just cut and past it into Word, make changes, paste it back. :)
