Some Suggestions.

These are just some suggestions I have come up with.
  • Add a SayThanks button to posters. This could help with keep threads clean and simple from people who provide fixes without 20+ people quoting and saying thanks.
  • Make the reply button only pressable when you hover over it. Currently, it responds when you are hovering anywhere to the right of it. Could be a bug.
  • Add some kinda IP filtering to downloads so people can't sit there and exploit their download counts.

Would this be a button for a comment and it would just count the number of thanks and add display it on the comment? I think that would be a good idea!

Witch reply button, in the comments i don't have this issue and on the forums i don't seem to have this issue? Maybe I'm missing one?

We currently have rate limiting where we only count the download from the same ip for a couple times then its ignored until a set time has been hit. Maybe we need to be more aggressive with our timeout? Or some one exploiting has access to a large number of ip's.

Thanks, refresh and it should be fixed.

As for markdown it is not that simple of a feature to add to the site.

You can see the idea here.
https://www.psrtutorial.com/forum/in...?topic=38050.0

Could be a good idea to be more aggressive! We want challenges here for UI ratings/downloads!

Thank you kindly for your fast reply!
