In my opinion, a "10 most recent posts" page would be useful to browse the forum easily.

So what else is new.

All of these ideas are gold. I *will* be implementing as many as possible. I'm still waiting for broadband at home at the moment.

Don't know if it has already been mentioned, but how about some The Darkness illustrations on the sides of the forum? Where there is this blue and black striped thing. Some pictures of the band, or maybe the cartoons from the NGSU video?

Okay, so the truth is very simple.

Following the band's return in 2011, I was without both a PC and a permanent web connection for around 12 months. By the time I'd resolved this, I no longer felt like I had the time or energy to devote to a forum or website.

The rise of social media is also something that changed the landscape between the band's break-up and re-union. Many of the off the cuff statement's people tweet about or place on FB in days past would have become fresh topics on bulletin boards.

However, it seems a few of you still visit here and want to get something from a Darkling fan community. I feel some sense of debt and hope to maybe look at ways in which we can improve things around here.

Over the next couple of weeks I hope to spend some time going through these suggestions and 'finally' acting upon on them.

Should therefore anyone else which to wade in with any fresh ideas, please do so!

You are doing a great job, Switchy!
I love visiting the forum, because it is a place where I can really discuss The Darkness related topics in depth. Facebook and Twitter just doesn't do that for me. However, I created a fan page for Norwegian fans a year and a half ago. facebook.com/thedarknessnorway
I use a lot of news I read on here for material to post on the page.

I'm so pleased there are various resources kicking around for the band. And I think you're right, there is something a forum can offer than perhaps FB or Twitter can not.

It's a long time since I've done anything technical web-wise so it might take a while longer to get my head around it again, but I'll see what I can do!

Does anyone else find it hard to tell when a thread has been updated with new messages?

I'm forgetting which ones I've read and which ones I haven't looked at.

I think the yellow faces are a good enough sign that the threads have new posts in them.
When you're not logged in, it's another story..
Anyway, the idea of having a stream/list of the top 10/5 latest updated threads on the side isn't a bad idea. KISS Army Norway had something like that on their forum, and it works!
Since I'm a graduating media student, I have learned a little about building a web page. My main project was that I made a fan page for The Darkness Norway, so I'll try to dig it up and maybe see if there's something on there that could be transferred to here. Let me know!

Here's the main page for my page (it isn't a published site).
The header with the photo of the band fades into a cartoon picture of the band, and back again. The Facebook logo is also a link to facebook.com/thedarknessnorway
I added a twitter feed and an iTunes thingy on the side to make it a little bit more interesting and interactive.
On the TURNÉ/TOUR, i have a Bandsintown plug-in that allows me to see their upcoming dates and buy tickets (like they have on their official site)
As a background, theres a large stack of pancakes with syrup dripping down on them, but that's out of the frame here.
I still have all the CSS and HTML codes if anything seems interesting.
