    Is there any sticky thread where we can post advice or requests to the mods?

    I would request that the names on the homepage in the list of threads (eg "thread started by" and "last post") are highlited & linked to the user's profile.

    How silly can that be?

    That sort of integral change to the functionality of the board can only be performed by administrators (moderators can generally not change the actual generic functionality and layout of the board; they may generally only modify data entities such as threads, signatures and members' ban status etc.). d is the only board administrator, so the kind of suggestion you've given above needs to be directed at him.

    Where did the 'k' come from? 'DXOS' has no hint of a 'k' sound in any possible pronunciation as far as I can see...

    'DEEOX' is just how I chose it to be pronounced...

    Hmm... that's not how I pronounce it, although I think I can see where you're both coming from now. I instinctively pronounce it 'deeox', and that's how I intended the name to be pronounced.

    Im sorry.

    I just thought it would be logical if the 'x/ks' sound came before the 'o' sound like in the spelling.

    My bad.

    My last post may have sounded a bit snappy, sorry; I never meant to chastise you! No need to apologise, pronounce it how you like!
