1. I wish there was a link to see all posts by a certain member.

2. I wish when you made a post, the new page went to your post instead of the first page of the thread.

3. I wish there was a page menu along the top of the page instead of only on the bottom.

4. I wish direct insults to a poster's parents was not allowed on the forum.

5. I wish the site had emoticons. (Sometimes stupidity requires art)

A tagging system.

For example, if I typed "@Thett3" thett3 would be alerted to the post, poll, opinion, or debate that I tagged him in.

There have been many times where I would like to do this, usually for the sake of comedy. However, I think this could be socially good for the community. There would obviously be a blocking option to keep certain members from tagging you.

We have this. Go to their profile page, under activity statistics, click on their number of posts.
2. I wish when you made a post, the new page went to your post instead of the first page of the thread.


This is stupid. It would take forever to get to some posts.
3. I wish there was a page menu along the top of the page instead of only on the bottom.


Doesn't really matter.
4. I wish direct insults to a poster's parents was not allowed on the forum.


It's either name-calling of ad hominem. Just ignore it.
5. I wish the site had emoticons. (Sometimes stupidity requires art)

We have this. At the top of forum posts, there's something that says "emoticon:" hit select and choose.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

How so? When we post now, and we are routed back to the first page, we have to go back to the page of our last post. That takes longer, and active subjects are most often on the last page. The ease with which you throw around the word "stupid" says a lot about you.

3. I wish there was a page menu along the top of the page instead of only on the bottom.


Doesn't really matter.

It obviously matters to me and others. You do understand this thread is not about what matters to YOU, don't you? Pages full of posts can get long, thus one has to scroll down to get to the page menu. It would be easy and convenient if the menu were at the top and at the bottom. So yes, it matters.

4. I wish direct insults to a poster's parents was not allowed on the forum.


It's either name-calling of ad hominem. Just ignore it.

This is like telling me to ignore someone being assaulted. No one has insulted my parents, but I have seen someone do it to another poster. It should not be allowed.

5. I wish the site had emoticons. (Sometimes stupidity requires art)

There is no "emoticon" link at the top of my pages. Post a screen cap.

That would be a cool app. That's now my #6

It seems like this is functional only on your own profile. When I go to your profile for example, I cannot see any link (activity or other) which gives me all your posts like when I go to my own profile

On the left there is a colum that says "activity stats" on any person's profile. There is a # of forum posts in this box and if you click the number you should be able to view the posts.

Got it!. I had been looking at an unrefreshed page and was not logged in. Thanks for the patient help Debatability.

Ok then, the new list is,

2. I wish when you made a post, the new page went to your post instead of the first page of the thread.

3. I wish there was a page menu along the top of the page instead of only on the bottom.

4. I wish direct insults to a poster's parents was not allowed on the forum.

5. I wish the site had emoticons. (Sometimes stupidity requires art)

6. I wish Members could alert/poke/notify other members, directing them to a post or debate or issue therein.

one thing i would add is

7. I wish front page debates were determined by likes, not comments. Literally some really dumb debates get on the front page because debaters like lifemeansgodisgood spam the comments.

I totally agree with your list though.

For a second I thought you were replaced by one of those "black magic" spam bots.

pfffft, that's for people with superior genes, who knew better than to become academics. I'm going to retire in a hole in the ground, rooming with fire ants, screaming about multivariate regression analysis and other utterly useless stuff that won't make me rich, but can induce catatonic rants.
