I've added the Offline Matchmaking board beneath the Online Matchmaking board. That seems to be a good place for it.

I've disabled the karma system.

I'm going to keep the XII forum for a little while as I know a few players who just got into KoF because they found XII very cheap. I want them to have easy access to that. If it no one uses it for a month or so, I'll delete it.

SMF does not automatically keep sent PMs. You have to check the box at the bottom of the email that says save to outbox. I have not yet found a way to modify that.

I'm looking into the location display. Edit: Location added.

When something is posted on the homepage, I put the timezone. If it's in the forums that may not happen but I'll definitely encourage it.

I still have not found a way to direct link to posts. Still looking.

I'm trying my best to keep up with these requests but I've been pretty busy. I finished posting all of the XIII movelists that users had not yet filled in last night and that was quite a feat.

How soon would we see a Dream Cancel youtube channel? If THE ANSWER's direct feed videos of 13 should debut there, that would definitely generate more traffic here.

THE ANSWER has his own YouTube page. I'm sure he would prefer to have his videos there as he's doing the work and deserves the credit. The problem is that I have no real way to capture footage of XIII. I don't live near any nice arcades and it doesn't make sense to host a video on a YouTube page that can be found elsewhere on YouTube.

not sure if there's a webpage or forum that has Arcade Cabinet locations. Also thinking of starting Region Specific Threads similar to what SRK does (tho just one thread instead of a subforum) could be a decent start

Is it possible at all to get rid of the ugly prefixes before the topic names?

I'm going to look into it. I like the function but the icon is pretty ugly. I'm still working on the direct link to post. There's a lot of documentation to get through but know that I haven't forgotten it.

I've used a few SMF forums before, so I can help out with a couple of the issues.

If you want to be directed back to your posts after you make them, go into your profile, go to Look and Layout Preferences, and check "Return to topics after posting by default."

In order to link to a specific post, you can grab the link from the icon at the top-left corner of each post. It doesn't separate the post from the rest of the thread, but it will automatically scroll to it.

Thanks, Parapets. I didn't know about the direct link thing so that's very helpful.

The white and light blue is a good start, I'm curious though, are there plans for a darker layout at all?  A few sites have different options for folks who don't like reading black text on bright backgrounds, so an alternative would be nice

If I can find a nice dark theme, I'll install it and allow users to change their theme.

Would it be possible to add a field for Skype in our contact information? I think it could be useful for us when playing against each other over GGPO.

I'm not sure how exactly you pick and add new themes, but in the interest of trying to help, I did a little searching on my own

Perhaps something like this

http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=2240

with maybe iori as the background?  I myself have generated a few fuckaround forums before, but nothing in smf, so I'm not sure exactly how you have it setup, but I do like the small kula pic, it's a nice touch.  So when I saw this theme I thought iori

Would be nice to have the option of choosing a theme that resembles each KOF XIII character's color palette.

We should delete the KOF XII board. It's not being used.
