Should we add a quick summary of features to the first post of this topic? I hadn't noticed the oversight before but I HAVE noticed it with many mods, no description of the exact features, often not even in the mod file itself.
I'm not following you. You and I have no control over the first two posts of the topic since they are made by the person validating the mod, but the first post already says this:
MOD Database Manager wrote:
...MOD Description: This mod keeps the unread flags for a topic active until the topic is read. It also activates the new post feature for guests...
And my first post (which is the third post in the topic) goes on to say this:
...Here are the changes as quoted from the mod description:
## The following are new features as a result of Merlin's upgrade in May 2005:
## 1. The upgrade solves the bugs that sometimes gave a user an unread flag on
## his or her own posts, sometimes gave a user an unread flag on other posts that
## he or she had already read and sometimes caused a user to lose all unread flags.
## 2. The upgrade keeps unread flags beyond the current page of a topic until
## the user actually visits that page.
## 3. The upgrade gives the user a new yellow button on each post (right next
## to the quote button) that allows the user to mark the topic unread
## again from that post onwards (a sort of bookmark function).
Did you have something else in mind?
I'll re-write the actual description once I get around to doing version 2.0.5 since that version will add at least one new feature to the basic mod.
