The intent isn't to keep all the deals for premium members, and I think that's been addressed adequately here in this thread.

We spend a significant amount of time doing "real development" around here.

Hey! I've had a beer with Suprmallet and Flay!

Blocking just countdowns, not entire sigs

Blocking individual user sigs

Better access to our post history

username changes

event reminders
Brent has addressed these to me, and they are on the development list, with the exception of username changes. That is an issue that should be addressed to X and the other admins.

Also, regarding post history.... you should be able to see all your posts-- although it's not the best format... UserCp -> Your Profile -> Statistics Tab -> # Find all posts by [you] and # Find all threads started by [you].

The method I use is this: Set your subscription to "no email notification" and every time you post to a thread you'll automatically be subscribed to it. When I go to a forum, the first thing I hit is UserCP and it lists all the threads I'm subscribed to that have replies to them since my last visit.

I would pay $10 if it helped to develop that feature. If someone's already mentioned this request, I'm sorry about repeating it.
This is also on the development list. We have mobile versions of other sites that have received mixed reviews. A more elegant solution is in the works.

Please keep us informed!

Brent is serious. We are currently looking into implementing all of those features. See my above post about your posting history though.

This has been discussed and from my understanding shot down for multiple reasons.

Pilot posted in another thread instructions to unsubscribe from the auto-renew. (sorry, but I don't have time right now to hunt it down)

any word on refunds to people who didn't see the coupon?
I was out of town for the holidays and it will be in the works next week, however we are not making any promises.

I wish, this only gives you the last 500 posts.

Exactly.

IB-Dick: All you really have to do is allow the search results to expand to as many pages as needed to accommodate all the posts.

You can turn off the subscription on Paypal. That turns off the auto-renew.

I'll seriously look into this for all users.
