Title: Some forum modifications
Post by: VFS on March 01, 2008, 03:20:45 PM
Member colors are showing, color legend is on the forum index, users past 24 hours are now displaying, posts per page is now set to 20 instead of 15, and youtube links should play in-thread just by pasting the URL.

Split this from the original thread ('getting comfortable').

Also installed a modification that shows how many users and/or guests are inside each board, on the forum index, and eliminated postcount based groups in favor of one group, "Regular Member" (in addition to Administrator, Global Moderator, and Forum VIP).

This has been a public service announcement - we now return you to your regularly scheduled forum.

Oh yes. I was about to ask about the new "Regular Member" group but I see VFS posted while I was typing. Are we still going to have custom ranks based on merit?

Just one title now :)

also added a now playing box.

edit: and added the option to view "All" posts in a thread - now where the page numbers are in long threads it says "1  2  All" or "1  2  ...5 All" or whatever :hat

:lol

You can change your birthyear to whatever you want, I'm considering changing mine so that instead of 35 it's something more reasonable.. like 24. :D

By the way, new modification has been added - "My Bookmarks" - now you can all bookmark your favorite threads and check on them by clicking that button up top in the menu bar. :)

I'm having a thought here as my self-declared role of Resident Big Thinker requires me to. Infact, I'm going to make a prediction :hat

When we get to about 75 members, methinks the large influx of posts will be too many to comfortably fit into the 3 main forums we have (not counting Ask Charlie). This will be a good opportunity to open a new forum. Anyone have any ideas as to what this forum should be? If we make it a P/R Discussion forum that will make this place quite similar to DTF.org, but then again we wouldn't be complete without an area for serious discussion.


Title: Re: Some forum modifications

I doubt that'll really be necessary.

I mean, JP's forum has ~15,000 members, and he's only got two main forums (plus an "Ask JP" forum)

MP has nearly 20,000 members and he's essentially got only one section (with a couple of other very minor subforums)

and James' forum has about 600 members, and he's got a total of two subforums


I mean, I'm sure its a possibility, but I think its a bit of stretch to say that we'd need a 4th subforum when we hit 75 members.

In my role as Resident Big Thinker nobody ever specified my ideas had to be good :angel I see your point, though I have to say it is hard to keep up with sites like that with so many members and so few forums. 75 members is a too low you're right but I figured some of our members are rather active.

No. You look great, and sound great. This just showed me that I want to see you on tour. Please come to West Palm or Orlando here in FL!  :D
