Forum upgrade

Hi all we are going to be upgrading the forum when we upgrade from Drupal 4.7 to 5. If you have any suggestions that you would like to add to the wish-list of functionality you would like on the forum please post it here.

I use firefox browser and have an add on that you can use for auto refresh at user set interval... the problem is if you are in the middle of writing a reply or post it will still refresh and you will lose all that you had done and have to start over.  I learned not to use it here although it did seem like a good idea at the time.  For those that don't post maybe it would be useful but would need the ability to turn it on/off as needed I think.

I am fairly new to the chat sites and I never know whether to post on the waterhole chat site or the campfire one.  The two seem to be pretty much the same with general chit chat and animal chit chat on both.   Is it really necessary to have them both or could they not be merged into one site?

I am with you on this one Poppet I also like to get up in the morning and go through the threads and read what happend what was discussed etc I dont like the instant chat system, from experience it is also difficult to control if some one comes on and gets out of hand.

SINCE  AFRICAM IS ABOUT  BIRDS

AND  ANIMALS  THE  WILDLIFE AND BIRDING

SECTION  COULD BE MOVED AND PLACED

JUST ABOVE THE  GENERAL CHIT-CHAT FORUM

THAT WAY  MORE  MEMBERS MIGHT  LOOK IN THE

SITE   READ ABOUT  GLOBAL ISSUES  AND

INFORMATION   ON  CURRENT  SITUATIONS

AROUND THE WORLD   OF  INTEREST TO

MEMBERS AND THEN  THEY CAN  DISCUSE 

ABOUT  THEM  THE CHAT SITES

  -  EG -    KAMFERS DAM  FLAMINGO,S

THE KRUGER PARK TIMES -  kruger news -rangers diary

expert articles  ecology & conservation   issue,s

THANK YOU  -  BARRY

    I'm guessing you've been asked before, but - is it possible to have a live chat area? I think more people would be more inclined to add to more conversations if it were easier to chat. I know there are times when I just lurk because it takes too long to add something new then keep refreshing to see what everyone else is saying too.

    Thanks for everything you guys do! It's very much appreciated by all of us.

    Campbell, et al: We are always quick to let you know what is awry, but I forget to thank you for the improvements you all have made lately. The buffering at EP, although not gone, is much improved as is the lighting and focusing. The Zoomie has been great and the Q&A thread has added a lot. The NK staff is part of our family. The drive pics, the interaction on the threads and Jacques willingness to play in the water for us is wonderful. I know I've forgotten something, but please let everyone know how very much you add to our lives.
