    Not sure if anyone ever noticed and asked this question before.

    I just noticed some members have a "+" sign next to their login names. First I thought they are the indicator for "moderators", but seems not, as it also appears to others rather than Kwun/Cheung/Mag.

    Just wondering, if the "+" has a special meaning or represent a special group?

    If I was not mistaken, I saw "Cooler" and "Winex West Can" also have "+" for at least once. ;)

    Oh, I think the + sign means the person is replying/creating threads.


    I see Lazzy is replying a thread now at the status. :)

    Lol... Even I can share the honor now...

    If BJ is right, then, I should have the "+" quite often. Ooops.. caught myself. :D

    I thought it meant that your Buddy was online, because "Dill" mentioned that I have a + next to my name, and I noticed that he usually has a + next to his; I haven't noticed anyone not on my buddy list to have one next to theirs.

    Incidentally, I think the software is slightly better now; have you made a few changes, Kwun? Although, it's a pity there is no reply button in the pm folder nor an immediate link (in the pm folder) to the Sent Messages folder.

    Hey Kwun, don't accredit Cappy with the genius of solving this mystery; I solved it on the first day (when Dill asked me) :cool: ....
    On a serious note, the software does look better recently (though, I'm still not sure about these emoticons - :p, :eek: & :eek: ); I like the pics (of Xia and ?Camilla) above the links on the Main BF page.
    I miss the reply button on pm's; and what happened to the Sticky about string tension? I've seen a resurrection of this question recently (despite the Kwun's thread http://www.badmintonforum.com/vb/showthread.php?t=12569&highlight=ideal - cf. particularly ynexfan's cogent remarks on universals :) ). I've also noticed that it takes much longer to connect to the forum and to search for new posts. But apart from those things, the forum has improved in various ways and probably now houses the most exciting online badminton community.

    ynexfan2003,

    glad you like the improved color and the top images. hopefully there will be more improvements as time goes on. but bear with me as there are much to do.

    about the reply in PM. there is a "quote" button, which is "reply with quotes". probably should be named "reply" instead as many users have been confused by it. i was looking for the similar image/button for reply but haven't found one yet. will fix that one soon.

    as for speed. i am surprised you find it slower than before. most (including me) have found it to be speedier, perhaps you have logged on to the forum as higher load times?

    hi.

    im enquiring on the function of the 'buddy list'. what does it really do besides putting a '+' marker next to a user's name? and how do you excess other functions if any.


    thanks in advance

    Im very surprised to not receive any reply on the matter as to date.... has this question gone unnoticed? or is this a silly question. or perhaps there just isnt any answer....


    oh well
