  1. Will it be possible to allow forum members one of the two options they can select to show in system specs in the post title?

    Hey Archean, I don't think I understand what you want us to add as an option, can you please elaborate?

    I'm betting he means that rather then all the spec fields being labeled: CPU: Mobo; etc, can you add or leave a couple blank to list what you want.

    I thought he was referring to having the option to choose which system (from your profile) to show in system specs in the post banner.

    I think you're right, I thought it said "one or two" options.

    Guess we'll need to hear from Archean to be sure, but it would a nice feature.

    Exactly that is what I meant, sorry to cause all this confusion though :D

    And with post banner, you mean the system specs drop down?

    That's what I was trying to say :)

    A quick update... I've been wanting to comply with your request to select either system on your personal specs drop down, it shouldn't be much of a problem (or so I thought initially) but I've already hit a wall twice trying to find the code that assigns this data in the middle of vBulletin's spaghetti mess.

    At the same time we're waiting for vB's ex-developers now in charge of Xenforo to release version 1.1 of their software and move to that platform.

    Cool, thank you for your time and efforts in this regard Julio, hopefully there will be a way to do this sometime in near future. :)
