    I think after 1000 posts you should become a Classic Gaming Wiz. And after 2000 a Keith Clone.

    Hey Marulu,

    There's a section in our profile where we can add signatures, but mine doesn't show up unless I copy and paste it into my post, which I've been doing. I thought it was a clickable box under the post options when your typing up a post by disable bbc, disable smilies, etc. but there's no option. Is this something you can add to the forums? confused

    Awesome work so far. One suggestion though- can we get an Arcade forum? Considering we have everything from Vextrex to Wonderswan, it seems like a dedicated Arcade section shouldn't be asking too much. Smile

    Yeah, and if you need any help with any features, I have some experience with InvisionFree boards. I'm much more familiar with MyBB (I run my own forum using that software) but I've started a couple (dead) forums using IF.

    I love this board! Love the retro style. Old gaudy 90's websites are a thing for me.

    Suggestion: Since the SMS board is also labeled as the Game Gear board, maybe the MD/Gen board could be labeled for Nomad?

    Also: Maybe some more Keith-style names? A fighting game forum with the RPG board called Punch 'Em Ups or something. mite b cool

    Why not just add a "handhelds" forum? That way you can avoid having too few threads and in one thread and consolidate things.

    Might I suggest adding a "SEGA CD" section?

    Also to clean up the main section a bit and make the forum a bit easier to navigate, I think there should be "sub-forms" or "folders" (don't know the proper term for a forum) that contain the different game consoles to discuss. I think it would make it a bit more organized and easier to find the game system you're looking for to discuss.

    For example...
    on the front page you see:

    SEGA
    Sony
    Nintendo


    And within "SEGA" section, it would have:
    DreamCast
    Genesis
    SEGA CD
    Saturn

    Within "Nintendo" it would have:
    NES
    Super Nintendo
    N64
    Gamecube

    etc.
