Hmmm. I can't seem to get that to work with Scroogle.

Actually, I usually try to avoid calling out a specific search engine by name. I (sort of) made an exception in post #164. By "sort of" I mean I did use Google as a verb rather than a noun. Probably should no have capitalized it.

(We now return to our regularly sheduled program ... )

Well, I use for searches of german terms this: https://google.auth-o-mat.com/ since it uses https.

Happy late birthday to LQ. Is there any cake left?

I do not think including a Flame forum will help LQ. I think it will most likely hurt it. IMHO, if you are going to flame do it in your blog.

Some people said to include Avatar support. I say no because images does slow down loading sites. If the avatar is at a server, my computer have to wait for it to respond. Storing avatars on LQ is also a waste.

The check marks from what I understand are threads that I have replied to or threads that I have started. I did not notice until later on. It will be nice to include what they mean.

Write a LinuxQuestions tool for iGoogle to ease viewing subscribed and/or new threads.

In the subscribe threads, provide an option to always list all the subscribe threads. Right now, I have to click on view all subscribe threads which takes more time. If there any subscribe threads that have new posts, highlight them using some color. I think orange might be a good color to start with.

The search feature always needs improving. Look at Google. Google has been improving, but is not perfect. Computers only knows how to search for a word, but computers do not know how to think what will most likely what you are looking for. Probably the best way is ask moderators and LQ contributors to collect data from threads that are finished and then add the information to LQ wiki pages in a way that a novice to expert can comprehend.

The HCL needs to be redone for a stricter layout to be as informative as possible. May want to combine LQ HCL to other Linux hardware database sites, so that they become as one. I am an expert user and I know what Linux supports, but novice user's head will be spinning after visiting to just two HCL sites. A program should the be written for Window and Mac users to help them out of what hardware will be supported and what kind of features or all features are supported for their hardware.

I do think LQ looks congested, I will like to see some open space.

It will be nice to have a page that collects Linux news. The LQ News forum, is a little cheesy.

I second that motion. I know there is a key to such symbols somewhere on this website. I have seen it. But I also remember looking for and not being able to remember where it was. It would be good to have a key to symbols at the bottom (an/or top) of each list of threads.

Go to any of the forums (such as Linux-News, for example) and scroll all the way down the thread lists to the bottom. That's where the list is.

Huh? At least I didn't find it there? Where is the list of "keys to such symbols"?

Sitting between the long box called "Display Options" and the smaller box called "Posting Rules" and inline with the "Forum Jump" dropdown - it's placed on the left hand sie of the screen. It includes words such as:
Code:
New posts  	New posts  	More than 15 replies or 150 views  	Hot thread with new posts
No new posts 	No new posts 	More than 15 replies or 150 views 	Hot thread with no new posts
Closed Thread 	Thread is closed 	Thread Contains a Message Written By You 	You have posted in this thread
There's on in every forum and sub forum but not on thread pages.

Still you are missing what I have said. The the picture designates for
"you have subscribed to this thread." There should also be the checkbox picture in the listing.

Thanks for the info. My suggestion then is that such a key be included whenever a list of threads is presented. And that the key include all symbols that might appear in the list. Including the symbol Electro is talking aobut.

So he is. Hover over the icon with the white arrow and it tells you how many posts you have made in the thread. Not sure why it's not listed.
