An automatic translation tool to understand what some of the folk are trying to say.
Not needed for me - Hint: G00gl3 already exists.
I understand ALL posts, as annoying as some of them might be. This excuse has expired, find a newer one.

Ok I'll suggest one major implementation I'd like to see.
This is gonna come from Ooper's NodesStats update when he process this (If ever).
-Ooper's NodesStats have stats of players and notify when player is online at %This% Server.
-The forum's profile will have implementation from Ooper's NodesStats notification squadrun.
-The forum display player's name/server location under Rank.

Awesome.
Implementing Server Stats and Player Stats (that ideally can be linked to forum users) in the forum is a dream I've had for a long time.
Unfortunately it would take some time and work to implement it correctly (also in the long run, since it makes updating the forum software more time consuming), and I just didn't feel like going full for it. :/
I'm not sure if this will be off topic or on topic but to take a guess, I had something in mind like this to begin with via text/url link based?

As if the profile already have the player name attached to the Stats on the site.
Then can try to add-on some fancy pic and better than Gametracker's stats logging. lol

I'm not talking about language. I'm talking about understandability of said language...

- Change all the colours.
I rather like that one. My community for UT over on the very dead livejournal site I used the same basic colors from the player ladder that comes with UT, which also one of the skins to my preferred music player also uses:

I would be a merciful but inscrutable god.
Well said!

Actually on a more serious note, the user display alongside all posts is pretty decent... but I might wanna replace the joined date with the time that person posted last. The information is often on each person's own profile but sometimes it isn't, and it would be easier to tell just seeing it alongside posts rather than go searching for it.

Introduce a function where users could hide complete topics from other users, besides only posts.
Convenient for users that would not like to see a certain member his spam topics.

Enable a function that reads everyone's posts out loud via their speakers. Only the content of the post, not the text on all the menus or links around posts... and in Bugs Bunny's voice.
