    Let's say, hypothetically, that some of us were working on a new website. Let's also say that the new website is all custom code and so we can do whatever we want with it, essentially. What features do you guys like and think we should include? What do you find nice about this site? Is there anything this site doesn't have that you wish it did?

    I quite like the layout of this site - easy to find new posts and the shoutbox is useful. Some way to easily look up a member (if you can't remember the right name/spelling to search on especially) to send a pm to would be handy - that seems to be one thing we don't have currently.

    For security reasons, we don't have a public roster available. Is there another way you can think of to make looking people up easier? Maybe searching by post content, or email address, or even substring in the name - this site only lets you search the beginning of a string when looking someone up, I believe. If you could search for substrings, you could for example search for "jubal" and find "SirJubal".

    Additional search parameters would certainly help. Substring searching would be good. Reminds me I hadn't actually tried wildcard searching here ('til now - doesn't work, returns error). I'm not so keen on searching on email addresses, but that is just a personal thing.
