I have a suggestion, as well as a kind of a problem with this forum.

I want to point on those two sections: "Unofficial Keen Games" and "Release Forum". You may want to rename "Unofficial Keen Games" to something else because with this name, finished keen games may also be posted there too. Rename it something like "Unofficial Keen Projects Under Production".

The other thing I want to point is that at some posts, I don't see the actual picture posted by the author. For example, in the topics "Chopplo!" or "Morty McMire Pics?", the authors are posting some pictures, but I can't see them. I'm using Firefox and I don't know if this problem persist in other browsers simply because I don't use any others. However, I can see the picture by just pointing over the place where the picture should be displayed, and by pressing the right click to show me some options, I can see it displayed separately. Please do investigate on this bug.

Hmm, I use FireFox and I can see pictures in threads fine, are you sure it's not something to do with your settings? :confused

I use Opera and haven't had any problems, either. I don't know what it is, and I don't think there's anything I could do about it, in any case... I couldn't start going through the source code and trying to find a bug. :)

As for Unofficial Keen Games, if new, finished, Keen games are released there, those threads can be easily moved. We haven't had those that much lately... :)

I always thought "Unofficial Keen Games" was for discussing other people's games (e.g. "I'm stuck in someone's mod"), and the "Release Forum" was for announcing new things, be it fangames, mods, utilities, music remixes, etc.

As to Firefox, what version are you using? Perhaps an upgrade is in order.

While we're discussing forum issues, one thing I've noticed is that if you open too many subforums at the same time, some of the threads don't automatically get marked as read. Has anyone else noticed this? When I drop by I tend to click on "View posts since last visit", and then open all those threads in new tabs - but I have to do it slowly, or they're still marked as having unread posts when I'm done.

Oh, my mistake. It is to do with my settings. For some reason, images from photobucket were blocked. I very often block images here and there and most probably at some time, I've blocked the whole photobucket site :).

There's a new version of phpBB that, among other things, lets you quote multiple posts at once. (And possibly fix problems like Malvineous mentioned, which I think I've noticed, too.) How involved of a process would updating phpBB be?

Hey all, I'm new here. I'm 13 years old and Commander Keen was my favorite game when I was younger... but I still love it. :)
