@joby_toss: I have applied a patch to hide the bots from the display.

I have installed subsilver2 since the poll indicates most of you prefer it over prosilver.

Let's try it out and let me know what you think.

Who knows? Some of you might have gotten used to prosilver over the past couple of weeks. :D

@ Andrew Lee
Is it possible to have subsilver2 with a smaller Font?

Edit: No need!
I switched my Opera to an other resolution. Now it looks fine.

I didn't know the difference, and I didn't bother to check them out to vote because didn't think I'd care much.

Now that you've changed it, I like this much better :)

Don't know where I should put a request for a forum feature so I'll try here: is it possible to add a new field for every topic (at the bottom of the page) with a "Fast reply" feature? Kinda' like Executor's forum has (e.g. http://executor.21.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=777 - scroll down)?
At least for me it will speed up things a little bit as I don't need all the options a normal reply window has to offer.

I saw this http://www.ktuk.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=6556 that's why I asked. I have no idea what/if any other coding is required... I also seen quite a few mods that enable this feature.

I think I'll use a GreaseMonkey script (http://softinquiry.com/phpbb3-should-ha ... reply.html).

Sorry for the trouble! :)

Edit: the above javascripts don't work with Greasemonkey nor Opera. But this one does: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/1667 .

actually quick reply has been with phpBB3 since 3.0.6 (latest stable being at 3.0.7pl1) it's under the posting options in the admin cp (most of my sites usually use phpBB3 so I do know my way around phpBB3 :P) and in there you can enable quick reply in all forums or by manually editing each forum you can enable it for specific forums there.
