    I know, I know... we've had these threads before and nothing came of them. This time I promise it will be different.

    This is a place for suggestions and also pointing out bugs.

    Try to be specific... instead of general "Change the theme" feedback, try finding a theme you like, and pointing us to that, so we can see what kind of colour palette and theme you like...

    When posting a bug report, make sure you test it immediately before posting. We've tried to fix a few recently. Many remain however. List them out.

    You can also suggest a reordering of the forum. Complain about mods, publicly wish me bodily harm... etc... but if you keep the criticism positive we might actually be able to do some good soon.

    Try and categorise feedback into the following buckets:

    1. Bugs
    2. Feature additions
    3. Specific Addons
    4. New sections
    5. General Suggestions


    As usual, please read what others have posted to avoid duplicating suggestions. If you want to add your vote for a suggestion, quote them and +1 their suggestion, instead of saying the same thing in different words...

    That's it... fire away...

    Can you specify what's wrong with search? I just used it, worked fine for me.

    We need some new features like followed in TomsHardware forum.

    1.We need to implement badges like AMD Expert, CPU Expert, GPU Expert etc for certain members who are proficient in their respective fields..
    2.We need to implement Credits system like which member earned more number of credits that can be redeemed to buy Digit Magazines...
    3.We need to implement more themes & individual coloring system to each sub-section...
    4.We also need the Bazaar Section improved like TE and Erodov forums do so that my Digit becomes No. 1 forum in India...

    For example

    It shows unrelevant threads at times and if there are more than 30 posts in a thread, it shows the thread instead of pointing at the exact post. (Default search is behaving like this)

    Exactly. Bring back the 'Like' button or +1 button or whatever equivalent which you think of/others suggest.

    Now that the forum has grown much more than what it was back in 2003, I find What's New returning many threads which I have no interest in. I'd love to have the selective forums functionality so that I see only those threads that interest me.

    Desktop site is too slow since the update, like its loading on a dial-up connection. Getting frequent log-outs and reporting isn't working fine.
