This is really small, and I might be the only one to have the preference, but is there a chance that we could get rid of the space under spoilers? So that

^that space is gone, so the box looks better in the middle of paragraphs and such.

Yeah, I think I can fix that real quick.

Cleaned up image uploading codes:
-Added text that displays whether private images are displayed or not.
-Restricted front page image area to last four uploaded images.
-Added image gallery page, linked in nav area.
-Added site-wide user preferences database table. (Currently only has image display settings. Table set up for forward-compatibility for future projects.)

Two suggestions for posts:
-Post reply on board view for individual threads, for quickness.
-A +1, "like" feature or something like that. Maybe a list of people who have "signed" the post or something like that.

How feasible are these to add?

I recently added a quick reply button after the last post in the thread, if that's like what you're thinking of.

A +1 thing wouldn't be bad. It crossed my mind once before, but I never really looked into it.

Ooh, this Quick Reply is pretty neat. I was thinking more along the lines of a button on the area where you see the list of threads Image

Edit: something like "make a new post here" button

To do:

Image Host
Clean up how images are displayed
-It's pretty basic right now, since I just wanted to get it working and make it live

Create user image albums for sorting, searching, displaying, etc
-user can create albums with choice of album name
-dropdown menu at top of gallery page would allow user to select which album is shown (to include option for "Show All")
-dropdown menu with button below each picture would display "add to/remove from album *album_name*"
-images could be added to more than one album if desired
-user and albums would have unique URL (ie: aswnIP.org/img/phauss, aswnIP.org/img/phauss/myalbum.)
-ability to make user and/or albums public/private (ie: make album "myalbum" public, but make user "phauss" private so only album images are public, not all user uploads. user and album pages will be private by default.)

Front Page
Add front page user control panel
-central location that allows user to change settings (toggle front page images, toggle private images, toggle privacy for individual image albums, etc.)

Add front page admin control panel
-adding/editing/removing of front page boxes with no coding knowledge (with limitations; most current boxes will be hard-coded and non configurable. an example box might be for DnD player progression statuses per-game, or a WoW boss progression chart.)

Extra Stuff
Place link in each minecraft server status box to take user to dedicated map page
-this would make things a little more intuitive instead of stumbling upon the map on the "extras" page
-dedicated page would also allow for more map height in the browser

Work on the encryption/decryption script
-because it's fun
-clean up aesthetics and make live on the site
-add "copy to clipboard" code
-allow user to save messages
-allow user to assign keys to a username whitelist and passcode to share with others he wants to be able to read messages (this will avoid having to share the key directly between parties. users not specified in the key whitelist won't be able to use the passcode. user whitelist is only displayed to the key creator in the user c.panel. users need the passcode to automatically decrypt messages until disabled by the key creator.)
-allow user to label and assign multiple keys and their passcodes permanently to their username (allows multiple predefined keys per user to give to different people, ie. "clow->phauss/lim" key will not decrypt "clow->phauss/forb" messages. would be configurable via front page user c.panel.)
-allow user to enable/disable key passcode they have created (this would effectively allow the key creator to kill attempts at decryption by that key's assigned user(s).)
-allow anonymous users to encrypt and decrypt messages but with no logged-in benefits (messages and keys wont be saved and the key will have to be shared directly between parties, much like how the basic code is now.)

example key:
Spoiler: show
Key creator: Phauss
Key label: For Stef's eyes only
Four-number key:
1: 31
2: 8
3: 17
4: 23

Key whitelist:
Clow

Key passcode (share with whitelisted user):
chinchin

Enabled: [x]

I added a site index link to the forum header and a forum index link to the site header. I'm gonna do away with the links category at the top of the forum board.

The user control panel is functional, though it's pretty basic at the moment. I only have image display settings up right now, but the next project is to implement image albums. The server databases have been set up and I just need to write the code to get it up and running. http://aserverwith.no-ip.org/cpanel.php, let me know if you find any bugs. Should only work for logged-in users.

**Update** - Album creation has been implemented, but I haven't coded in a way to see the albums or add images to them. Creating an album puts it into the database with the album name, user name, unique ID #, and a privacy toggle (1 or 0, default 0 for private). Tomorrow I'll work on adding a dropdown menu next to uploaded pictures to allow adding them to albums. For now, http://aserverwith.no-ip.org/img.php
