I wonder if anyone has critical feedback they can provide us about the site functionality and appearance.

There are certainly no problems that I faced with the functionality.
But we require some more people. This forum, or any forum for that matter, is vague without discussion.
Great work on this site. But we need more members so that we can share our views.
We should start some subjective discussion on different religions and share our experiences.
yes, i totally agree with you @aki_rathod.
I have just become a member. If a choice is made I do not recall when I first said there is no god. It has never been an issue to me. But, of human mind work 'atheism' better suits the ever going human mind deeds. IMHO, only humans can make the world a better place for all humans.
When I'm logged in, these forums disappear and a different set of messages show up. I've been replying to those, but they seem to be lost when users who are not logged in access the web site. It's as if you have two separate sets of forums -- I hope you can merge them together into a single forum for everyone to access regardless of whether they're logged in.
I sympathize with aki_rathod and Tenzing. Other than that, site's forums could use an edit comment feature for those who post a comment but would like to make a grammatical correction or add something.
OK, just joined, have a few points.
Could do with more of a "tree structure" at the top of the forum page so you can navigate around them more easily. Not much of a problem now, but will become more important as the site grows and there are more sub-forums.
Save? Why not "submit"? this is the forum norm and people will be more familiar with it, save implies that you are saving it in the same way that you would save a draft.
Edit function - particularly handy if you write something scientific when you are pissed off with someone and notice you have made loads of spelling and grammar errors!
Preview so you can check how your post will look before you post.
Private message function, in case there is info you would rather discuss privately or are just trying to give someone something specific to them without clogging up the forum with junk text for everyone else....
That's just a few things off the top of my head, thanks for sorting out the website.
Basically, what I am saying is that I think it should have all the familiar functionality of your usual phpbb forum
I think the site works well...
I think there should be an option for email notification or something when you get a response.
Thank you for the suggestion. We are currently working on new features for the site and this has been added to our list of tasks to complete. We will push the update and apply the changes as soon as the new features are available.
would it be possible to see threads you've posted in as you browse the forums?
Yes, it's posted on your profile.
Found it, thanks ^^
I think this is the busiest post on the entire forum. If we all get together and have discussions like this one about the other topics, I think we can make this forum grow.
I would like to see a way for us to thank others for their comments on posts. A lot of times someone will write a very good and lengthy response to a post and I would like to thank them for it without having to type an entire message about it.
Thanks for all the ideas on improving the site forums. We are currently working on some improvements and features for the site and we are hoping to have them added to the site as soon as possible.
The #'s to the right don't jive with the number of posts.
I am having a few problems using opera as my browser, sometimes the user profile pictures in the forums do not appear? Does anybody have any idea why this may be?
The site functions perfectly, however I made a post earlier and it lacked an area to place it in the forum. (It didn't really fit into the debate room section, nor this one, possibly an admin could make a few other sections too - an introduction section would be nice too!)
I love it how you guys refer religious people as "non'atheists" on their profile!
More forum rooms may be useful. And perhaps a page displaying markup tags useful for posts :)
I would also agree that perhaps the options for personal views be expanded to include the "big four" and of course the optional fifth and sixth:
The Big Four:
And "Agnostic/Gnostic" Deist
I noticed that the signing in issues have been fixed, thanks! I notice now though there seems to be a small lag on updates to new post. for example before when I would comment on a topic I could go to the shortcut in the path tree at the top of the page and click on forums again and see the forum page with new post identified and my post not labeled as new now my post are sometimes labeled as new and the areas I already visited are still labeled as new. I'll come back after a bit though and it seems to correct not as big an issue as getting signed in as Rob though. Don't worry Rob, I did not sabotage your account. At least now I can sign in stay signed in and not get switched to another persons account. Thanks!
Thanks for letting us know Zaphod, I will add it to the issue queue so we can check it out and fix it. :) We will let you know once the fixes are up.
right now while trying to edit a comment in the dabate room when I hit the edit button to edit a comment, it takes me to the dabate room see more topics page.
Thanks whether it was the result of my posting this or not for fixing the problem!
