You could certainly create one. You can make the webpage look however you like with some greesemonkey scripts (assuming you're running Chrome or FF).

I think you guys should make the colour scheme a little more lively, no offense but grey is kind of dull.

It's not grey, it's blue! Sleek new age blue!

Actually, everyone can change their colour schemes (i.e. "Styles") on the bottom left-hand corner of the website.

It's not blue! It's subgrey! And I think it looks fine. So many forums have ridiculous, distracting color schemes. This one's easy on the eyes and looks professional.

LOL, my first thought was April Fools' day but then I realized that this was more of a Valentines kind of thing Razz

Perhaps you can appoint a bunch of older, possibly more trusted, members to start on v4?

I love the look of compsci to be honest. It just seems more efficient, and makes the important things stand out.

I have to say this one thing. All help sections, the "Answered Question" button on the toolbar is not noticeable and because of its lack of Apperance, topics are only marked as answered rarely.

It would be great if there could possibly be maybe beside the topic title a button that says "answered" when the question asked by the user is answered and a button that says "unanswered" ect.

Edit also I would just like to quote the words of dan:

re: the answered question thing. It should also be encouraged for mods (perhaps per section mods, or special mods) to review topics that have been inactive for a while and mark them as answered if they are answered.

If we combine that with the feature many help forums have where when you enter your question it suggest possibly related questions, we could really remove a lot of the redundant questions asked over and over.

That could work if people used it. But people won't use it. That's why we have so many topics like "need halp wit mai gam urgent ploxx" despite the sticky that says not to do that.

yeah but it'd at least catch a few of the people. Plus you can search for a topic and still not find it, because the search bar isn't very good and usually leaves you to look through 14 pages of crap until you find one that talks about what you want, and has an answer. At least answered topics could be put first, making it easier to find things and not have to repost.

Can there be a section for C#?

You can create new threads on C# in [General Programming]
