I went and implemented a few new features on AikiWeb.
The first is the way in which quoted replies are displayed. As you may have noticed, quoted portions of text are now displayed in a table with a different background color like this:
Fly like a beam of light: fly like lightening, strike like thunder
Also, the manner in which one quotes using the [quote] vbcode is now updated as well. Take a look at the vb Codes (http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/misc.php?s=&action=bbcode) page under the "Quoting Other Messages" section for more information.
I also added a "Quick Reply" text field below each thread. This won't allow you to quote any previous messages nor use other features that are usually present by clicking on the "[Post Reply]" link. However, it should allow for any "quick" replies...
A quick hack is the "/me" hack. If any of you are familiar with IRC, you'll know what this is. Basically, if you start a paragraph with "/me", it'll use whatever proceeds it as an "action." So, if I were to write, "/me does a forward roll", it'll look like this:
/me does a forward roll.
Lastly, I've added the new AikiWeb AikiWall (http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/aikiwall.php) section to these Forums. It's basically an ongoing "wall" where you can write your latest thoughts.
I think that's it for now. I'm hoping to add new features to these Forums soon, so stay tuned!

Thank you Jun...very nice. I like the improvements to the "user friendliness" :)
Btw, looking forward to the next bunch of new features if this is an indication of how good they will be.
All the best and happy training. Keep up the good work
