Well we all can say not everyone can be happy; thats why there is another theme to select. Personally the CleanCut theme is nice; I enjoy it and use it. Can it be fixed or updated some areas? Yeah always room for improvement.
Why not add a tool or feature that can close all topics or not allow postings in that topic. Lets say you set the filter for anything before January 4, 2006 all will get closed. Or you know have different logics where x years ago, x month and year, etc..
I really realized this would be helpful such as here :).
I think the online users limitation(well actually all of them) is bogus.. I do agree though with everything you said.. I was looking into having IPS host my website, but looking at the prices and limitations made me close the page and look else where.
