    Curiousity question Mark.

    What is most common OS that most users utilize here on the Homeseer forum and what hardware do most users utilize when accessing the forum?

    Cantankerous here (age thing) I can still adapt to change.

    You had me doing a freebee Penn and Teller security exam of the Homeseer forum.

    IE: this is my nickname for penetration testing.

    Whoa! Whatever is decided it will need to be up to date.

      Those are both Discourse forums.

          Mark which is most common hardware?

          IE: PC, Tablet or telephone? or can you tell based on browser utilized?

          Personal favorite here is the PC. Upgraded phone to larger size screen but it really doesn't make my browser experience any better.

                    To add to this - because the learning curve of HS3 can be very steep to some, including me, the forum and its search capabilities via Google (not the forum search) is a very important component to HS3 sales, as in support from this extraordinary community.

                    I, too, am not a fan of likes and dislikes. I am a member of the Big Green Egg forum and these likes and dislikes can provoke some very intense and sometimes hostile interchange - not discourse.

                      What's missing from this message board other than the ability to search. It seems most tech savvy users know how to use Google to search the message board using search terms site:forums.homeseer.com

                        Nothing. It allows posting of words, images and links. It allows attachments. It provides for member controlled PM and email communication. It allows us to have a signature and avatar. It lets us know the most recent posts and shows the time and date of any post. It is clean and uncluttered.

                              Attachments in PM's would be a nice addon

                                Thought of this one because of a scripting error help question.

                                Syntax Highlighting

                                When trying to read a script/code in a forum having proper formatting and syntax highlighting would make things A LOT EASIER.
