(GASP That was a mouthful.)
Any who, a recent thread involving a few posts by the lovely BS Angel has inspired me to start this thread.
There are several features that the Waypoint Forums lack compared to most other forums (the site is in Beta stages, but still).
> It is up to us, the Waypoint community, to suggest to 343 of the features we would like to be implemented to the forums.
Now, keep in mind that not every suggestion can or will be implemented. There’s only so much the forum team can consider and implement.
> This post will act as a collective list of the community’s wishes. As people reply and state their wishes, I’ll add them to this post in a list and, of course, credit them.
>/ I’ll start the list…

//> Polls are a useful feature for any online community. Not only do they serve as tools for the forum administration team (administrators, moderators, community helpers), they also help individual community members understand each other.

//> The underline HTML font style is incredibly useful for organization. There are already bold and italics font style options, it has always made me ponder why there wasn’t an underline option.
