I have 2 suggestions I'd like to offer to the PW.

The first suggestion is: can you find a way to give us posters more different graemlins to use on our posts. I am getting bored of using the same old ones all the time. Or if you can't give us more graemlins, can you point those of us without an abundent supply of graemlins in the direction of the best free ones out there? \:D

The second suggestion: Instead of or perhaps in addition to the "rate the members with stars thingy"; why not let us "rate each post we care to rate". On boards where this is done; you can even do searches for posts with a certain # of stars. Since there are many folks out there who seem to feel the rate the members thing is less than a good idea; maybe a system rating the post instead of the "member" is a better way to point people towards helpful or interesting posts. ;\)

In all I think the PW owner and moderators are doing a great job managing the PW forumns; it is not always an easy job to do such good work.

Gee I hope someone is reading this area of pianoworld

Anyway, I agree that at least a couple more graemlins would be nice - ones that are included in the "instant gramelins" area, so you don't have to go elsewhere.

I just saw a post where someone wanted a crying face gramelin. I've often thought that would be useful to have!

Since I am too computer illiterate to figure out how to import graemlins from other sources, more choices on the instant graemlin menu would be very welcome.

I don't think I would need a "rate an individual post" option (I read too many and it would become tedious to have to give individual ratings). But I would like very much to have the ability to CHANGE my ratings of people! I've made ratings, perhaps in haste, that I sure would like to be able to adjust now.

Good stuff. :p

Just wish all those extra smileys were "built in" to the Instant Graemlins here...

Sometimes I don't feel like driving down to the store to get one!
