Unless you live in the GMT time zone, posting times may look a bit off. You have to go into your profile (an option at the top of the forum), scroll down to the time zone option and figure out what your time zone is compared to GMT. If I figured out mine correctly (US Pacific time zone) it is GMT - 7.

Cool, I learned something today so I guess I am done-always figured it was just something I had to put up with.

And with this new technology, we can now see the many people who have registered but never posted.

moodyrunner, for instance . . . . although he still posts here under a much more well known pseudonymn . . . .

It's pretty standard stuff. My board isn't anything special.

It looks like the ones that are already there don't get adjusted though:

Fine, fine work Ben. I am VERY impressed. Don't know what more a message board community could want. Even emoticons :D Well done.

One thing I have noticed is that to get to the historical board from the current board one has to return to the main index of the message boards. Any chance of direct links to speed things a long? This is no big deal but that was certainly a plus for the old formatt.

Go to the Jump to on the bottom but, you're right, the other way was better.

This was the first thing Garry noticed. I'll add the Jump To box at the top of the page too.

log-in each time?

Postby wineturtle » Sat Oct 08, 2005 1:44 pm

I have to log in each time I enter even though I clicked the auto-log-in feature.Just my lack of savvy or a normal thing?

Cool! 8)

Wondered if something had happened today when I was getting an error. Ben was obviously rearranging the furniture. And the walls, ceiling, floors, doors. But the windows are still the same. :D

I like it!

Same idea with the Headlines. Be better to have Previous/Next at the top if that is an easy fix.

You can hide your online status from other users, but Garry and Ben will still know what you are up to :wink:

Still no threaded view?

Postby Honusonthesound » Mon Oct 10, 2005 2:12 pm


I can handle change. Change is good, no? But unless I'm missin' sumpthin', there still ain't no threaded view. Lots of good features on this new one, but the best forums include a threaded view so you can follow a particular thread through the various drifts while ignoring the chafff. As it is, I see every post whether I want to or not 'n have to wade through 'em all. Hey, I'm a busy guy.

I want my threaded view!
