Couple of things I'd like to see.

I'd like to be able to sign in from the homepage instead of going to forums bit because when on iPod touch it takes a bit time to load each page.

Another thing would be to get a message when somebody quotes you so you can quickly respond instead of forgetting about it.

True what you say about 2nd feature! I'm not that good with websites so didn't know if it was possible.

Login thing... maybe. 2nd request? This is vBulliten. That feature doesn't exist. When you "quote" people you can type in anything you want. How would the .php code know when someone quotes you? Compare quoted strings from previous posts? Too much overhead for not enough benefit. Won't happen.

There is a hack though.

You can go to the search page and search for posts that have your username in them. Remember to select "Show Results as" Posts (bottom of left column).

About that login, you mean login for forums or login for commenting on blog posts? Coz the forums asks you for login info just once. If you check the "remember me" box then you'll be automatically logged in whenever you access the forums again.

And for blog comments, doesn't safari automatically fills up your email and name info? Haven't commented on the blog posts from iPhone for a while, so I'm not 100% sure about this, but afaik that's possible.

Edit: Just checked right now. Safari does remember your info for comments.
