Dividers to the right, please.

things I like about Vanilla, things I like about CoT

Don't get me wrong, I like CoT too.

But I prefer that the last replied to thread pops to the top.

And tells me who last posted.

And lights up threads I haven't read on all computers I use, properly.


Things I like about CoT:

anonymous people can post
sidebar links and quotes
snarkiness

...
So now I have TWO places to waste time.

The problem with this approach is you lose your spatial orientation. If you are looking for a thread you can't just "know" about where it is on the page anymore.

"pops to the top"

that's my least favorite feature on any forum.

Having it configurable would be nice.

Vanilla is the name of some forum software (cf. fruitshow). One of our number has an implementation which is currently by invitation. Invitations are not difficult to come by...

I like the feature of knowing when was the last reply.

Other than that, I prefer here.

Except the impersonation.

I think the chief inpersonator has now been banned.  It really was all just one person.

AHA: Even though I don't think that they ever bothered to doppleganger me, that's great news.  All of the back and forth over whether someone was fake-whomever vs. real-whomever was a pain to read.

Vanilla is great for getting peoples email addresses too.

Just 'forget your password' and then it will reveal your email.  Not that hard if you know or can guess a login.

Can I assume that if I was a registered user I could see this information as well?
