    Nice! Too late to add "specify topic visible/hidden times" feature? :whistle:

    I had that problem when I was using a Linksys router and Comcast (cable company for those unfamiliar) cable modem internet. Now I have Verizon FiOS and its complimentary router (Actiontec brand, I believe) and haven't had that problem. Not sure if the problem was due to the Linksys router or internet provider.

    Sweet, I like. Someone should make an IPB skin based on it.

    Edit: Barring any objection from IPS, of course.

    Agree with all of your suggestions, Luke. Usability is key.

    And you did so in a very sleek manner :). Now all you need to do is fix those gamma channel problems :P.

    I think it's more an issue of preventing someone from reporting the same post over and over again.

    My suggestions for the notification system:

    Notification System Suggestions
    First of all, 3.1 is looking pretty good :).

    The notification system is exciting, and I know that this is the first beta release, but I think it could be improved. Currently, the system seems to work like that for personal messages. You are taken to a list of notifications, and clicking on one opens a new page with more details. Personally, I think something more lightweight and less complex would be even better. Something similar to the way Facebook displays notifications would be nice. For example, instead of seeing a list of:

    New reply to your status Today, 02:12 PM
    New reply to your status Today, 11:07 AM
    New reply to your status Today, 10:58 AM

    And then having to click on each one to see the pertinent details on a new page for each, just list the details of the notifications:

    Bartosz Misiak replied to Mike54's status | Today, 02:12 PM
    iikato repled to AnthonyKinson's status | Today, 11:07 AM

    You could have an AJAX button/check mark/etc. next to each notification that allows a user to mark each one as read/unread. I think that, in general, this way is simpler and gives more information at one glance without having to click into additional pages.

    There also needs to be a more visible way of knowing that you have new notifications. For example, like the number that shows up over the profile picture in the user navigation when you have a new private conversation.
