Hey guys,

I think platform is really cool. *Two thumbs up!*

I'm a complete beginner with CSS, PHP and all that but even I've managed to do at least a little customization on my own. I think I've finally figured firebug out so it's not hard anymore.

Things I would like to see improved are:
Improved customization of the feature slider.
[*]What I mean by this is I would like to be able to resize the feature slider so it fits within a blog post. Then I'll finally be able to do my "Top 10 greatest Liverpool Goals" posts.

I think it would be cool if users could use the arrows on their keyboard to move left and right. Example here:[/*]

[*]I'd also like to be able to display the three most recent posts automatically in the feature slider on the home page.

If either of these things are possible already please let me know. [/*]

While I kind of understand it now I think a lot of users are getting frustrated because they don't understand how to customise their sites. I'd like to see three steps taken to improve this:
Firstly, improved forum support.

[*]Not only in terms of quality answers but also in terms of timeliness. I don't know if you've thought of this, but what about hiring forum moderators from different time zones. I live in Australia and due to the time difference it can take a full day before my question is answered. I'm sure their are others in this situation. [/*]

Secondly, I know you're already doing this but I just want to re-iterate its importance.
[*]We need improved how-to documentation. Most of us are beginners and it's not fun when you have to do a google search for 2 hours to find what you need. [/*]

Lastly, more how-to screen casts.
Ok cool! Thanks for your time. Pagelines is cool and Platform is even cooler but with these improvements it will be the coolest. Coolie Cool.
