    # Increase the text size of the site (to 11?..; first thing to do, please). Yes, I am stingy with other possibilities to do this... but the first look counts!
    # Posted links should be complete, not cut off, please.
    # Reduce moderation time considerably, please.....

    # If I see something else, I want to post it immediately...
    Now it's up to other members to speak up...

    Moderation time seems perfect as-is.
    Moderators should only be required to visit once or twice per week.
    I'm new here, but I have already witnessed that if a "report" is sent to the moderators, they reply/resolve within HOURS, if not MINUTES.
    That response time is AWESOME!

    Good to know, thank you!
    But my detox topic was held in moderation for a day, that's why. Now, it's liberated.

    Because you JUST joined the forums. Do NOT worry, once you get some basic
    reputation, posts will go through.

    I'm trying to locate the activity stream but am not sure XenForo even has this classic IP Board feature, unless I'm missing it, could be me.

    If you are not logged in, just hit the "recent posts" link.
    If you are logged in, then use the "new posts" link.
    Those two will keep you "up-to-date", especially for those of us that visit a few times per day.

    # I'd like to see the possibility to EDIT posts indefinitely rather, please...

    Yes, getting old now. Eyes not what they used to be. Font size a constant annoyance when online.

    I use this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/zoom-page-we/

    You can zoom any page to the size you want, and, you can increase the font size seperately from your page size.
    My setup indicates this (Version 19.10) is what I installed on my (XP) computer.
    Try it, youll like it!

    -c-

    Edit: I have this installed on my linux "Mint Mate" machine. (I used it yesterday after a month or so!), works fine there too

    Yes, I frequently have to enlarge the size of print.

    But still wished to second msfntor's request, as it would be nice if I did not have to.

    Would like the posting, but that would mean I take pleasure in others pain ... I hope your health is better in other areas. You seem cheerful on your posting and its always good to see you.

    Join the club. I am a heavy user of the Windows magnifier utility. Windows 7 & higher it can be launched by hitting Windows Key and plus key. No such shortcut exists for XP so it must be launched manually from accessories -> accessibility. It really is handy when reading/entering posts because it follows the cursor as you type.

    Are you guys able to hold the control key and scroll middle mouse button to increase the total page size?

    Even though I've been here a while, I still find navigating through Forum software by XenForo™ © 2010-2018 XenForo Ltd to be a bit odd compare to IP Board and vBulletin. I think perhaps this forum should save money and go with simple machines software.
