So (typing this for the second time as it failed the first(and second)) I decided to write a few tweaks for the forum functionlity (in case they never do it themselves) for firefox (using greasemonkey).
The basic aim was (is) to improve functionality and so as they are still works in progress they aren't exactly pretty soloutions (and there could be bugs). But anyway so far I have.
(NEW) Link to the forum section a favourite thread was posted in. (I personally don't want to favourite a bunch of sections, this may not be much use for others though.) At the moment it could do with a bit of clarity, the problem is there isn't much space to put like "UK General Xbox Discussion" or whatever the section may be called. I'll have a look at tweaking it. (Maybe someone has some good suggestions). I should also add I haven't favourited any other content I suspect it may break with other stuff, if it does let me know... I'll fix it (hopefully).
There's a few other things I want to add. Moving the menus for example so they aren't so close together, although I'm not sure how best to go about this (and there's a few things I'm fairly certain I can't do).
Anyway long story short, if anyone has any suggestions for (relatively minor) adjustements that would be of benefit let me know. And (obviously) if anyone wants a copy of the scripts let me know (and let me know if you encounter any bugs or anything). I might get round to uploading them sometime but at the moment I'm updating them too often for it to be worth the effort (especially if nobody cares).
To get them to work (at least using firefox and greasemonkey (I'm not sure about any other browser)) install greasemonkey and it should recognise the script when you open it). Any problems, ask (I'll try and help...).
