Why does every step in the forum index file tree take you all the way back to the overall forum? There is is no intermediate point. You go from individual thread, back to the full forum index. I believe that,"once upon a time" , you could back out a single step from a thread to it's parent category. (IE, from a thread about the VLC media player, to the sub forum, "software". Is it supposed to be, "all or nothing"? Um, is there anything that can be, or anybody willing to do something about the new emoticons? IMO (if that means anything), these are pretty incoherent. Plus, I dearly miss the "rolleyes" and "suspicious" jobbies. The ever popular, "facepalm" would be great too. I know that with the old VBulletin software, there is a full range of interesting custom possibilities.
