    How about setting it so links in a post open in a new tab (or window)? This is the only forum board I've been to where the links open in the same window. I prefer the new tab because I can explore the link, then close the tab and still be here. I know I can right-click and choose new tab, but how many times have you forgotten to right-click and click instead?

    Just a suggestion.

    Isn't that a browser option instead of a forum option? :eek:

    *Sigh* humans are inherently lazy....

    I actually almost never left-click a link, I always right click to open in a new tab if I want to stay on the page im already on.

    I can see why you would want this because u may have just developed a muscle-memory to click the link on a forum thinking it'll open a new tab, and I'm sure making it so this is possible on this forum probably wont be too much of a hassle, but it's probably a good idea to try to get into the habit of using that right-clicker on your mouse :p

    This is why I blame the internet for most severe American (and United Kingdom....ian) overweight and laziness issues. When google puts in an update just so that users dont have to CLICK the search button.... I just have nothing to say, the world is doomed xD

    Though I AM an IT kid so I guess it's probably not in my best interest to start raging against the internet or anything computer-related at that ::)

    You don't even have to click, you could also press "Enter" .. but well, lazyness is coming over the world.

    Oh hey... you can xD, even I didn't know that. Though not all ppl have the scroll wheel, I hate when I go to a friends house and they dont have one, pisses me off >.< lol. And yes Baum, from the dawn of time human laziness has just gotten soooooo much worse lol, but the lazier we get, the more things we invent to make our lives easier.... which then in turn make us LAZIER!!! and the cycle repeats =P
