    Why is that? I am sure that if you post what you dislike, and ways that it might be improved, Ian would at least consider things.

    There's a thread about it. @Ian is super receptive to feedback.

    Yeah please do let me know what you do/don't like about it in this thread below - the more detail the better as I can test it out and try to fix things. We've already had some good suggestions for it.

    https://www.livingreefs.com/threads/new-tank-showcase.48636/

    The showcase section is somewhere that members can highlight everything in their tank in one place and edit it at any time without interspacing the current status through a long thread. However, you'll notice that existing discussion threads are link on one of the showcase tabs, so no functionality should be lost - the long thread with comments is still there. The showcase is basically an add-on to this.

    The showcase section has other uses which aren't yet apparent (and I can't do until we've got more on there) - such as linking from the profile panel, competitions, auto-generated sig images, etc....

    I love the picture option but can't get the discussion to work unless you have to now post all over again? I have tried looking to see if I can read back all the posts on members new showcases but it keeps looping me back to the home showcase page, maybe I am doing something wrong or the new showcase you make is an entirely new thread?

    If you've got an old discussion thread, just PM me the link to the old thread and your new showcase item and I can link the two together again :).
