Either we hack the code, so that people whose default group is the admin group don't get their names highlighted. Or we change the default group of the admins to members. I don't think the default group affects anything.

i've found out how to change this. do we want want all to look the same?

Could do. I don't think it adds much. Although if we leave it up to everyone to figure out how to do it, it will be more of a moral quest. Or maybe people need some HTML styling to bolster their egos. It's like makeup, but for websites.

beev: I think so, yes.

I do wonder about removing the join date and post count from under people's names too, for the same reasons.

i think that all sounds like good ideas. Maybe there could be a list of admins style people somewhere so people know who to PM if they have any BB admin questions?

i've tweaked the bb so that when you go to 'view unread posts' and click on a topic, you are taken straight to the first post you haven't already read, instead of the first post in the topic.

i think this is better, but if you don't like it and enough people agree with you, it can easily be changed back.

Sorted, but whoever wrote the forum software really should be ashamed. It doesn't handle summer time itself, you have to manually go and change the setting twice a year!
