These option take a big hit at the server.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forums before posting.
Do NOT e-mail Team-XBMC members asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting, make sure you read this first

There is at least a 'Return to Top' button.

Is that due to the new software? The old forum always had a Forum Jump as far back as I remember, and I been visiting here for many years, in fact I struggle to think of any forum I visit that doesn't have it.

Personally without Forum Jump or some kind of breadcrumb at the bottom like there is at the top, I now find the forums a right pain to navigate as I never come on the forum to only look at a single area, I always jump between General Discussion, General Help & Support, Feature Suggestions, & Development as I like to keep on top of what's going on.

Thanks I hadn't noticed that, makes it a bit easier, but still a right pain compared with how it's always been.

It must be the software, I noticed on the the iPhone and iPad trying to bring up the "forum jump" (before when it was still available-on MyBB) was very slow and difficult to choose another sub-forum.

If the forum jump isn't doable with MyBB how about a breadcrumb at the bottom as well? I admit it was getting unwieldy to navigate with so many sub-forms.

Or implement a kind of drop down navigation menu within the breadcrumb?

Could you please link to some examples so that we can fix it?

I could... if I could remember which forum threads I saw errors in. Next time I see something out of whack I'll post back here.

Have seen some [LIST] BBCodes not handled, even though this forum does support lists. Maybe a incorrect case issue. That's just one example off the top of my head.

It would be nice to see skin specific scripts move to a subsection like WIP.

It would be much easier to follow as threads would not mix with rest of the posts and get burried in time. For new skiners it would be oportunity to see what is available and what script serves what function, at a glance.

EDIT: we could even call this new section "scripts and tools" and move Foundation, texture packer, 1080 convertor and such there. This would leave sticky thread for anouncements and important changes.

EDIT2: BTW, There are several skins that have been released but are still listed in WIP. Those threads should probably move to their own sections in skin support.

My skins:

Amber
Quartz

it would be nice if there was a way to ignore particular forums entirely. the old forum let me disable certain forums from showing up in search results. since i browse the forums via the "view new posts" link, i get a lot of returns from forums that dont concern me - particularly anything mac related or skins i dont use. helps keep things cleaner.

is this a possibility?

This discussion was in the other thread about the new forum, and this is what da-anda had to say about it.
