    Site feature request

    like all sub cultures bmw tuning is far from a exception, we use horrible amounts of acronyms. Even though I know most of the ones used here after 1year of reading, I still get supprised from time to time.

    I would love for the forum to automatically insert '(full description)' after each first use of a acronym in a thread. The feature should be based on the acronym sticky I beleive we have. An alternative could be to always create hyperlinks pointing to the full description, though this would slow a reader down.

    I beleive that if only writing the full description once per thread would still keep threads "clean" but newbies would be greatly helped.

    Best I could do is create links for acronyms.

    Next reature request:
    lengthen the time a post can be edited from 5 to 10 minutes.
    5 minutes is just not long enough when writing a long post.

    more than that... imo, the editing time should be almost infinite, only thing is at the bottom of the post, like a footnote, it should give a time stamp of time last edited.

    It would be nice to mark a section as read instead of now marking the entire forum as read.
    Say I want to just mark the N54 section as read. I can not do this now. That would be handy.

    I can't possibly think of every contingency, just ask me when you have a question and I'll answer it.

    Can this website give me a bj?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    It can get you one, but can't give you one until the day computers are capable of doing that in which case I'll make that feature my top priority.

    Sticky, can you lengthen the list of rep give back to at least the rep history blockage threshold?
    Lengthen the list of reps received from 2 to 5 while you are at it, please.

    I honestly have no idea why the rep received list is showing up so short.

    What do you mean by rep give back?

    Rep spread is here to say. I just plan on giving you an option where it will be cut in half. It's coming...
