I'm going to start this off by saying I know this is far-fetched.

Is there a way to add new features to the site itself, to bring it up to more modern standards? Stuff like:

  • Tagging (go, @marioware2, I choose you)
  • Previews for images (so you don't have to click on a [card] link to see the card)
  • Embedded videos

Please let me down gently, I'm sensitive Winking smiley

Autocard anywhere is a nice work-around but I was looking for a feature for custom cards

A feature for showing custom cards on hover would be great if it wouldn't be a pain in the backside to implement.

Hovering over imgur files that are small enough maybe?

I know, for the msemagic plugin at least, we can directly link card images. As such:

Rather, it normally works. Weird

Yep. I need to remember that. My computer doesn't remember that part of it.

Where do you get the link from?

Check out my updated set hub.

I'm not looking for a direct link, I'm looking for floating previews. So we can build decklists in the forums without opening a million tabs

The link is https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/583716647/MSE_Magic_Other/images/OPO/46.jpg. Change OPO to the card's set code and 46 to the card's collector number.

I figure that implementing a hover image options would require having direct card links.

Pardon my lack of Sourceforge knowledge, but would we have to directly edit the site's source code to get a feature like this?
