    Default Double navigation bar

    Hello,

    A couple of features were thrown into the Quick Links menu, but those were pretty invisible and the single bar became a bit cluttered. It's not unlikely that more features will be added, so a double bar seems to be a good thing?

    Looks good to me. Not too cluttered, and could make the QuickLinks drop-down less lengthy.
    Be well. Do good. Keep in touch.

    Concerning the nav bar I have a request to make. I seem to remember that long before the skin has been changed in the fora, there was a nav bar underneath the topics also. I found that to be extremely handy since I didn't have to scroll up all the time through all the replies. Any chance of introducing that again, Tosa ?

    I have just realised how lazy I am.

    I think that was standard with Ikonboard? Should be possible here. Another thing I miss is a back to top link in each post.

    Excellent work: very useful indeed.

    On the double nav thing, would it be possible to move one or two of the links from the top nav bar down to the new one, even things out a bit?

    Yes, it's possible to even out. Not done so yet:

    1. See whether we like it.
    2. Take some time to group related items.
    3. We may add features.

    The avatar page should be spread across several pages to speed up loading and ensure displaying all.

    Fair enough. Good to know that the system is flexible, if it's decided to keep it.

    Um, the awards page, any chance of actually explaining what the awards are for. At the moment they seem to just be a repeat of the name.

    EDIT: Looks like the search function is enabled now as well. That's great, thanks for your work.

    Hello dgb,

    Yes, I think there could be some more explantion. The repeat of name is for HOF. Hall Of Fame. The first HOF was run in 2000 by the fansite shogunzone (Sonic_Nights). In 2001, 2002 and 2003 it was hosted here. There are various categories, ranging from best MP player to funniest forumname used here. Categories, nominees and votes are decided upon by the members.
