[*]Just try to enforce this. Go ahead. My server is in Pittsburgh. My company is in Seattle. I have many visitors from the EU. So I'll just sit back here and wait for the Interpol police to show up on my doorstep and give me and several tens of thousands of other webmasters a free trip to Europe for trial. You think the EU's prisons are crowded now? Wait until Brussels tries to lock up the owners of every server on the internet.
[*]There's a law in my country (The Free State of Underpantsia) that states that every E.U. bureaucrat must pay me a €100 per year Breathing Tax. I know they're not based in my country, and I have no jurisdiction over there, but just as you seem to think that the EU can enforce their arbitrary laws on this side of the ocean, I'll do the same to them.
[*]I'll shut down my .co.uk, .at, .de, and .es web sites before I'll comply with the laws of a foreign country on my own soil.
We used to be able to change a thread title from a list of threads by clicking on the thread title and making the change. Now you have to click a gear on the right and select that function, which is an extra step but not terrible.
We should be able to change a thread title in a similar fashion from inside the thread. Right now to change a thread title we have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page (50 posts on my forum) and then find the gear, then choose the option, then go to a whole new screen to make the change.
It would be great if we could just click on the title like we used to, or if a gear would pop up and allow us to edit it in-place like we do with thread lists.
It would be nice if Invision Board would have a plug-in or something to allow us to use the Solve Media CAPTCHA solution. With forum owners looking for new ways to monetize their properties, this is something that I think a lot of people would use. I might even allow non-registered users to post.
For those who don't like the Solve Media option, maybe have a plug-in for Akismet verification instead.
Both Akismet and Solve Media exist as plug-ins for WordPress and other platforms, so it appears they're designed with plug-ins in mind.
While a lot of people appreciate the increased speed and flexibility of AJAX, sometimes it's not always the best solution.
I would like the option to disable AJAX posting. I'm OK with people using the quote and multi-quote buttons to put stuff in the Reply box, and most of the other AJAX tricks. But when they actually Send their reply, I'd like the system to reload the entire page the way it did in previous versions (3.2, and before I believe) instead of just adding the comment to the bottom.
With the way employers are getting crazy with internet background searches of prospective employees, it might be useful to have a feature in Invision Board that allows users, moderators, or administrators to erase a person's name history.
For example, it's not unusual for someone to sign on to a forum using their real name. Somewhere along the line they change their user name. Through the use of the "Display Name History" link in a user's profile, it is possible to link a person's comments made under a pseudonym with their original real name.
It would be great if administrators could enable/disable this link in the user profile page on a per-user basis. But system-wide is OK, too.

Understandable, however, how many of your customers are outside the USA? I'm in the UK, we do not have a thanksgiving holiday here. Likewise, most other countries outside of the USA don't either.
Actually, many countries in the world have a holiday set aside for giving thanks. I looked it up last year and there were dozens and dozens of countries that had a Thanksgiving holiday. If the U.K. doesn't have one, that makes it sad and unusual. Google is your friend.
I already have one large Invision forum, and am considering setting up another one for another of my web sites.
For the new one, I would like to use the IPS hosted/managed option. Is it possible to have an IPS-hosted forum on a domain like http://forum.example.com, similar to the way I use a CNAME change to enable my Google-hosted blog to be on http://blog.example.com?
