You can adjust it to your own particular time zone, Raisor. Just visit your 'CP' at the top right corner of the board. :cool:

Wow, awesome new digs! Great work Boss and GIK!

Since 15fan is a moderator now, does that mean anything positive said about Kevin Millwood will subsequently be edited?:D Just kidding, great to have you!

Rem

Rem,

We got all the posts in from about last night and before, but since they were imported at that time, the posts from today are not on this board. It's a slight pain, but nothing too big to worry about, IMO. I'm certain that the same discussions will be reposted here.

TeamCasey

First suggestion: Can you default the user options to NOT send emails on subscribed posts? This will help until everyone gets acclimated. It's a good option, but until people are aware of it, they'll wonder why their email accounts are getting bombarded.

Just a start-up thought to save you some grief.

Chat Link?

Sorry ... I'm playing and beta testing a bit. Looks great!

Boss-Hog
08-02-2002, 06:28 PM
Yes, I suggest everyone change that option (not to receive emails on replies to threads they're involved in). I have no idea why the default option is yes but I would certainly recommend changing it.

Might be worth your while to direct everyone (in a sticky) to check their preferences. Some seem new, and would not be automatically set for the most privacy.

Like some of the new smilies. :)

1. Eliminate the button for adding a new thread when you are reading a thread. Will result in many "false" threads.

2. Is their an option for allowing the thread starter to edit his topic heading? We seem to have lost that and it was a good thing to have.

3. Allow users to delete their own threads.

1. Good idea.

2. I'll look into this.

3. Not sure I want to allow this, unless there is an option to delete it if no one has posted a reply.

1. Done

2. You should be able to do this already - make sure you're hitting the edit button that appears at the bottom of your post.

3. I don't think we want to allow this feature right now, as GIK said.

Outstanding job. I've checked it out pretty thoroughly and it gets 5 stars (out of a possible 4, if you know what I mean)!

One question: Near the top of the page in the Cincinnati Reds Talk forum is a listing of current users. Would it be possible to add the number of guests who are also online and then give us the grand total of folks using the forum at any given time?

Hey, what can I say? I just love numbers.:D

I do realize that this info is available on an 'all forums combined' basis by clicking on the RedsZone logo and looking at the bottom of the page you are shown. Maybe that's good enough, come to think of it. Never mind. :)

When you post, do you get a funny looking thing in place of the baseball on the listed page of threads? It almost looks like a camera to me, but it says something about it being a folder?? I only see it when I make a post...so I didn't know if it was just something to let us know that we have posted in the thread?

I know I probably did not spit that out to well...let me know if you need more info from me.

Boss,
I LOVE the new site, my questions is this: I went to my profile and turned the little e-mail notification default to 'no', but I am still getting them. Do these have to be unchecked every post you make at the bottom, or is it just that the feature was on when I made that post and it will send me one everytime there is a reply to that post. Please let me know when you get some time.

Boss-Hog
08-05-2002, 04:49 PM
I'm not positive but I would imagine it's the latter (the feature was on when you made the posts). By the way, I have no idea why that feature was on by default - I imagine it had to do with the UBB import.

FYI. I went back into my profile and checked to make sure the e-mail notifications were still set to 'no' which they were. Went to the post I have been getting the e-mails for and edited the first post within that thread and the e-mail notification at the bottom of the post was checked as one of my options. I unchecked the box and edited the post and have NOT gotten anymore e-mails. If that makes any sense you are the BOSS. Anyway, I haven gotten any more e-mail notifications, so I think I'm good to go. Thanks for your help Boss. and I LOVE THESE:

See Red Leaders post right before yours. He solved the mystery.

TeamCasey
08-05-2002, 07:32 PM
Let me see if I can also explain it.

When I first logged on to the new board, I responded to a few threads.

Then, I realized that I was getting emails everytime someone also responded on those threads.

I went in to my profile and turned off that option.

I still received emails but only to those threads that I had "subscriptions" to BEFORE turning off the option.

The best way that I can see to get rid of those few remaining emails was to unsubscribe to them using the link in the email.

Voila! No more emails. :thumbup:

It's a nice option on a board that you don't frequent often. I use it on the Cardinals site. Being a Redszone addict, it isn't a good option for me.
