There was some talk about adding a fastlane adventures section. I plan on digging more stuff out to talk about. :coco: A friend of mine once said to me "you are the only guy I know that had a favorite fistfight". I guess I talk too much. More drivel is on the way. :fryingpan:

Id like to know about your least favorite fistfight. Bet thats a good one.
A friend of mine once said "you are the only adult alive that still runs and rides the grocery cart down the parking lot back to your car"
Youth is fleeting but immaturity will last a lifetime. I should tattoo that on my butt.

You know I've had a few reports like that, but, I am still getting signups. I've tried the signup page on 3 different computers and didn't have any kind of problem.

I bet it has something to do with settings on your browser -- it uses a popup window.

Nonetheless, this is an issue. Ill look into today and see if I can dump the pop-up window.

Thanks, MJ

I was waiting to upgrade the forum to the latest software version -- it has some improved features that will make this thing work, without having to create a separate forum. It would be a social group -- and on the new version, social group threads are promoted on the front page and has threaded discussions. This is perfect. (I was trying to upgrade on Sunday and defered to this week)

But that is only because your friend hasn't met me. I do exactly the same, and my kids seem to think it is the greatest thing ever.
I guess they still are too young to be embarrassed of their dad!

Big Boss, make a "causeway forum" that's only visible to members.

Set permissions to allow titles to be seen (I think, for enticement), change the copy on the "insufficient access page" to notify visitors that they can view this "member only information" for free, with the register link/form.

Take a couple of the giveaway threads or something and put them in there... should increase signups.

I like the idea but I don't think titles become viewable when the are restricted forums.

As to the previous post from mtn. I saw something on a vbulletin forum once that allowed a certain number of pageviews from your pArticular I.p. Then you have to sign up. Maybe research it? Could increase the amount of members we have after they've already had a taste. :)

Thanks guys for all the suggestions ... I read and consider them all, based on what plugins are available. I hope to have some new things implemented when I do the software upgrade.

Hey big boss, can you PLEASE upgrade the video embeds when you're upgrading... it would be much appreciated.

I can understand if you don't want availability from 50 VSN sites, but maybe viddler or revver and a couple others, cuz google vid is dead and youtube sucks sometimes. :)

I think I posted the plugins for it somewhere too.

Oh and, thanks for listening! A lot of places don't do that, as I'm sure you know/have mentioned.

Those are legendary threads ... I have to add them manually.

If you think a thread should be there, post it in the Legendary thread ... should be a sticky.

Adding some sort of a title/picture for members who have high "Spam Police Score" would be cool (there are only 5 members with a score > 1), something like a "Spam Police Lieutenant" title, this way we'd know who are the spam catchers and maybe it would scare spammers off :smxF:
What do ya think?

Suggestions thread II

Not sure why, but I keep searching and cannot find the original thread. Anyhow, it would be nice in the PM area to have a reply all button for situations when there is more than one recipient of a message.

It's exactly 5 posts down from your thread :smxF:
And also you can do this by typing the names of all the people you want to send to,
Hope this helps.
Best!

That might be in the upgraded version ... I'm about 4 months behind on the upgrades.

Can someone tell me if on the home page, the ads are showing? They've disappeared here locally on both my computers and is just an empty spot.

Just a note, this forum is not for NEWS, but for internal FORUM news. Please post news stories in the offtopic lounge, or in the sub news sections.

Thx!

I posted this question in the Real Estate section since you had mentioned it in earlier posts, but I got no response, so is there any chance of the Real Estate wiki coming anytime soon? I know there were quite a few interested in it from earlier threads especially those of us who are looking to get our feet wet in RE.

Yes, there's a chance but not on the near horizon. I want to do it but there's an issue of implementation.

When I click on a thread that I have never been to, the page will automatically scroll me to the bottom (last post).. even though I never read the initial thread.

Can that be stopped? I will also start scrolling to the top and then it does it again after it is fully loaded... it takes a few seconds to load.

I like that it does it when it's a thread I have been following.

Just a suggestion.

Hey MJ,

More and more I'm accessing the forum from my iPhone, so a mobile versio would sure be nice.

There must be a VB plugin that does it.

Also, Twitter buttons would be nice - and bring in a lot more traffic.

Thx

I'm at 15 im going to celebrate when I hit 25 with a corona :smx6: :banana::smxG::greenapple::party:


I'm sorry Jorge, yes I like it. We can call it the Speedway whereas only folks with "X" Speed can view it. There are a few topics that I'd like to post but don't want them public to every Internet user. So yes, its a very good idea and you can expect it to be implemented in the coming week(s).

I'm evaluating several additions right now:

1) Private forum for users with X Speed or greater
2) Legendary / Newbie threads
3) Project Progress

I hope you manage to sell millions of books when you launch, not only will it be a just reward for the friendly community you've built and the time you spend here helping members from all backgrounds but it will bring even more people to the community.

Of course it will also mean and influx of newbie questions, reposts, bad advice and spam, to combat the influx of crap perhaps building on the concept of the speedway and having two versions of the forums would be a good measure to ensure the forum remains a valuable resource for the valued members:

1) A forum with all of the current segments which all members can view and post in.
2) A forum with all of the current segments which all members can view and only members over a certain rep point can post in.

This way the advanced real estate, ebiz and B&M guys and girls can surf to the advanced forum and avoid having to sift through pages of basic questions and crappy advice to find good advice like it is at RDPD.

The newer members can still benefit from the advice given out in the advanced forum but will be unable to clutter it with basic questions, reposts and spam and the advanced members will have the option of visiting the 'newbie forum' to give advice when they see a well though question or genuinely well meaning newbie question posted.

Maybe a stance towards reposts like at Lambopower will also be needed where they are immediately locked and the OP is told to do a search.


Just some thoughts.
