Post new Topic works - Check
Reply works - Check
Subscription works - Check
Moderation Queue - Uh, still not working...

Anyone have suggestions for themes, other topic forums, or other improvements before we go live to the public?

Yes, I'll have several tonight need to compose thoughts better. We will need to get a moderation team together first though because a) new users approval and b) spammers and a new forum. :)

Also, how easy would it be to implement Gravatar support?

Moderation team is myself, you (once we get the moderation queue working, since you're a good test subject), and Papa. I have a new Admin/Moderator named Marie who is helping set up and handle the Forum. And anyone else who volunteers...

I've been slowly expanding topics as I weigh what we need... and of course feedback from the beta team.

For instance, do we need an International or Web team group? Or should those be subsumed under relevant existing groups?

I'll add a Community Support Group with:
'LST File Coding Support' - Home Brewing Coding 'How-To' Questions Answered Here!
'Publisher and Book Requests' - The place to ask for new books, and get follow ups
'Additional Resources' - Hosted Locations (Wiki, Online Documentation, etc.)

I'm using the Herolab, Fantasy Grounds, and ENWorld forums as a starting point.

Here's what I think we will need (Some of these are already included, I'll list them to be complete)

General
Announcements (like it is)
Questions & Issues (like it is)
Off-topic (new; little to no moderation)

Community Support
Homebrew LST File Support (like it is)
Publisher Permission & Book Requests (like it is)
[Game System] (new; one forum for each system we support, including 4e & 5e)
Other systems (new; this will be a catch-all for systems users might be working on, or discussing)
Character Swapping (new; for people to post characters for NPC's, optimization etc.)

Development
Developers - Code Monkey's (like it is)
Experimental (like it is)
New Sources (like it is)
Output Sheets (new)
Internationalization (new)

Meta (new)
Website discussion (new; bugs, issues, improvements to PCGen.org)
Wiki (new; discussions about the wiki)
Forums (new; discussion directly about the forums)
BoD (new; Private area for BoD discussions, licensing & other sensitive discussions)

I'm a bit curious as to what content you expect in the Game System discussions?

I'll set those up, but was wondering...

BoD might have to be delayed, I need to double check who all would be permissioned to access it. Admins always have access, and not all the admins are Board Members. Though, I might be nominating someone to a board position soon...

Is there a particular reason why the user info for the posts is on the right? All the forums I regularly post to its in the left.

I suspect it has to do with the theme. Marie is working on that.

Looking good Marie. Moderation is definitely working.

Is there anything to give the mods an email or notification if there is a pending mod queue?

Will be implementing it shortly. Had to wait for FTP access.

Hmm the prosilver theme puts the user on the right, the PCGen user puts on the left.

Posting from my phone the background where it says Merry Christmas is now the dice image that is arrayed at the top so I'm betting that its related.

Yup, there are dice now instead of the words Merry Christmas. Looking good.

The only graphic I'm not sure about, the gold and green 'stars'. Unless we have shuriken... (Located by BOARD INDEX, and Partitioning the User Control Panel, Messages, View your posts. - and then the other side...)

I could change them, but just didn't know what to change them to.

Fair enough. Shurikens, or small daggers...

I'm thinking this forum is ready for the public. :ugeek:

I just noticed something. Look at the negative space in the middle of the dice:
