Jordan,

One final thing/suggestion from me (and I just now noticed this): Is there any way to stop the forum opening in a new window when a member clicks on "Board Index"? It's very annoying and confusing for me....

Thanks, brother. :)

Take Care,
Tony T.

Hi Tony,
I can't seem to reproduce that using any browser??? Might be a setting on your end?

Unfortunately, no, as it is hard coded to jump to the first unread post in a thread.

Haven't been successful adding topics to "Manage bookmarks." Any changes to process?

No changes. Simply scroll to the bottom of the topic you would like to bookmark, then click the "add to bookmarks" link.
This will add the topic to your "manage bookmarks" area of the UCP.

Probably user error on my end, it's working for me now.

Yeah, it's there. We have some supercool smileys! Thanks, Jordan, for all you do. :smt007

I have an idea: it keeps coming into my Twitter feed, because they have me pegged as a developer (yeah, if it's was 1998, sure). Anyway, it's the "Dropbox Chooser." It has been added to Yahoo Mail, and it's getting popular all around, with various sites and clients. In this way, it would be easy to upload either documents or photos to a repository, and this would make searching a breeze. (Or, the way it generally works, is that users have access to others "public" documents, under the stipulations of each user as to protection of the documents. So it wouldn't even take up any space here!) There would, of course, be specific limitations as per this forum, but I think it could work.

(Documents can be password-locked when saving to Acrobat format, so that members who only wanted to share with certain other members could totally protect even viewing of the document. I mean: you couldn't even view it if you didn't have the password. There are levels of protection with pdf documents, and the highest level a user can set is not to let anyone view it who is not chosen by that user. The lower levels are "no copy and paste," or "no printing," and etc. But you can totally block access to the document, as a user, and thus collaborate only with those you chose, if that were your choice.)

Oh, and it's easy as pie to do this. There are various pdf creator software tools. And they work great. It's just a format.

Just a notion. They have a demo on the dropbox site, and it's REALLY easy: little javascript thingy, that one inserts as code. And then this happens with the users:

After the trusted user (trusted by another user) inserts the password:

Have a great week, Jordan!

Hi rjm,
Thanks! I've been following DropBox since they were just a little kickstart. I've always been impressed with their services.

With that being said, I don't think it would be a good idea to have a centrally accessible repository here on the site. Don't get me wrong, 99.999% of the users here are extremely trustworthy. It just takes one bad apple though to log in and wipe everything out. Especially with the way users would have full access to the ENTIRE repository. Not a good idea!

A forum I visit has a feature where you can post incognito. I'm not sure it could work effectively on this site without flaming wars, but generally it is used to post information and remain anonymous.

I haven't used it on the other forum myself, but I still think it's a good feature if used correctly.

A good idea in theory, but the potential for abuse is astronomical!

Which is a shame, but it works fantastic elsewhere. Different boards, different fan-base I guess.

Thanks for responding so fast though.

A way to hide sections and or posts would be cool? Like those recurrings posts like Photo of The Day, Quote of The Day, Whatever of The Day.

Jordan, will the Import Top 40 on the main page be coming back anytime soon? It used to be the first place I'd look whenever I stopped by here. I suppose it was taken down for reasons.

Hi Richard.
I am not sure, to be honest. ElvisNews.com handled that section- and it looks like their server is having issues at the moment.

A new feature has been added which allows the member to delete his/her account without moderator/administrator intervention.
To access this new feature one needs to go to:
User Control Panel ----->
Profile ------>
Delete my Account


Please note, this action is irreversible. Once you delete your account, your registration data, PM's, and settings will be gone forever!
