    [MENTION=1513]Flak[/MENTION]

    RSS feed for Activity Stream.

    The New Post RSS is great, it gives me new threads, but I miss posts for subscribed threads unless I read them as soon as I get the email notification.

    Having an RSS feed which provides every post would fix this issue for me.

    I've got a way on my end to filter relevant posts.

    Thanks.

    1) Not sure if Vbulletin has the option, but having a preview button when you are doing a quick reply would be awesome.

    2) The default shortcut keys aren't very good, as they use ALT, which gets intercepted by browser (I've tried a few).
    Hover over the "Post Quick Reply" button for example is ALT+S, which is the same as Outlook which is nice, but it doesn't work.

    Exactly. Dates are confusing for a global wide perspective. IMO US (and some others) uses the most confusing one (as the mid field changes more frequent). The iso format (YYYY-MM-DD) should be used in general (or being able to select it). The build dates are confusing as well (2/1/2016 which is M/D/YYYY).

    And then there's the time . The 00:00 AM/PM problem.
    Yep, ISO format YYYY-MM-DD and 24 hours time for forums and builds.

    Problem solved.

    Thanks RattleSN4K3, I thought I'd seen it once before, but then didn't see it again.

    Typically I don't use advanced on top thread.

    Now I know.

    EDIT: would be cool if thread creators could change the name of their threads at any time. I think RattleSNAKE also requested this on his own thread. My apologies if I'm wrong.
    Yeah this annoys me greatly that as a user you cannot do it. I understand why not, but asking a mod to do it is annoying.

    Could Epic please get this addon: [DBTech] Advanced User Tagging which will enable twitter style @mentions?

    Given that Vbulletin is used for all of Epic's forums: UE, UT, Paragon, Spyjinx etc... it would be worth it.

    Also, as a lot of the newer people joining will be more familiar with @mentions this request is bound to come up.

    Thanks.

    EDIT1: Found that this was requested before and +1 by myself in the past....
    Now I've found a plugin.
    EDIT2: When I was looking back through thread to find previous mentions of @mentions I forgot to include RattleSN4K3 and GreatEmerald mentions. I'd actually missed the link in RattleSN4K3 post and went and searched and found [DBTech] Advanced @User Tagging again.....I was using the archive view of the forums as I find it faster to scan through a large list of posts, but you do miss stuff. and was in a rush... whoops.

    Copy and paste from their site:

    Advanced @User Tagging: What is it?


    [I]DragonByte Technologies is proud to present [DBTech] Advanced @User Tagging.

    The @user Tagging mod is designed to increase activity on your forum by allowing members to mention each other in posts when talking about them.
    This is done in a very easy way, very similar to how Twitter mentions people. We use @ ; as the tags, so for instance you could say:
    ----
    This new mod from [MENTION=250132]Drag[/MENTION]onbyte Tech; is pretty cool.

    The Gamercard on Xbox.com forums are a good reference for what I'm trying to describe.

    We're hoping to do something very similar!
