    It works! I am subscribed. It is giving me a list of all new posts with the link. Here is a screenshot.

    Good, that's what it looks like to me, too.

    But I guess I'll try to get it looking better (adding formatting, etc.).

    Make that four..
    Btw, I think the RSS feed can be visually enhanced by using formatting and other eye candy.

    Yep, that's the next step. But like I said, this is all new to me, but it's something I've been wanting to do for quite a while. It'll take me some time to get up to speed on the power of RSS.

    Hi Erin,

    I just happened to notice that the 'Add to user's reputation' icon has changed from the regular 'thumbs-up' image to something that aint too clear.

    Yup, that's the stock image, which overwrote the thumbs-up icon when I uploaded the new files. I'm thinking of changing it to something more intuitive and unique, but I can't think of anything right now.

    The default image sucks.
    Why don't you upload the 'thumbs-up' image? It's much better.

    Cool Reputation buttons

    phpBB? No... Not enough features. We're using vB. I really love it, except the graphics. On a side note, I'm planning to have the forum "skinned" in two months or so.

    I also dislike the scales in particular, but the thumbs up didn't seem to get people to give rep. I've seen a few other rep buttons, none of which were very intuitive.

    Here's a sampling:
