BTW, Mike and I are going to be keeping in constant contact about what’s going on here to make sure that all the users are involved. So if you have any ideas or questions let me know, and I’ll be sure to bring them up.

I think this is a really good first step.

A more prominent search feature would be nice. Speaking of search,
when I try to do a search with archives checked, I always get a warning message instead of results. —>Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error ‘80040e31’

Someone mentioned images. Images of a reasonable size would be nice.
About 150 × 150 at most. I know of one site that requires users to attach their image to the his/her post and it won’t show until the moderater approves it. Keeps out undesireable pics.

The no image issue was because you could use image tags to put code in your post that would get passwords. You can probably still get passwords if you know what you’re doing. So I don’t see any continued justification.

I had a couple of other ideas that I can’t remember last time there was an exodus but since my search function won’t go back that far….

Don’t see any problem with avatars, either.

Burning topics folder has been removed. It should be put back…and should work this time.

After a certain number of quality posts we should get a free ticket to Europe.

Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, and end up getting charged double.

I was the Mod of the Packing Forum, and I olny checked in weekly. I am sorry about that. I had 10 emails in to the ADMIN here over the last 3 years and was totally ignored. Then I am just deleted as a Mod. Never a email, never any contact. Hopefully this site is now run better than when I was a Mod…I was just hung out to dry

NC: I apologize, I should have emailed the existing mods — my fault. I was assuming you were no longer around because I haven’t noticed any posts, but as we all know the best mod-ing goes unnoticed. I’ll put you back as the Mod of packing. Sorry about that.

Post Note—

I’ll keep Jester in packing as well — it’s always a good idea to have more than one mod. Also, NC- if you want to mod any of the other forums, let me know.

Hello!!
I’m being ignored here!

That’s because you are a fuckwit, people here know the crap you tried to pull on the other site and don’t think you are responsible enough to be placed in a position of power!

I’m in the middle of moving and my internet access has still been dicey.

It would be nice if mods could get into other forums. It used to frustrate me to see a bunch of crap in other forums and have no way to take care of it. I don’t want to mod an additional forum, but it would be nice to be able to clean up spam in other forums.

MIM, I would be happy to Mod where you need me. Let me know.

What are the chances we could have a Admin/Mod forum so we can communicate with each other and get more of a sense of a team? We have no Instant Message option here…so this may help.

NC, great idea about the admin/mod forum — I’ve been thinking about that and will try and get that up this week.

Don, I don’t think this version of the software has sticky capability, but hopefully when the &quotowers that be" update this forum software, that option will become available. I will def’ly push for it.

thanks for the suggestions guys.

My internet access is still kind of iffy, but I get on when I can and fortunately, ROTW isn’t a real busy (but necessary, imho!) forum. I regret that I haven’t had time to post alot of articles like I used to. Gimme time and I’ll be back in the swing!

BTW moving SUCKS! Never again!

I moved last year as many times as I change my underwear, which is everyday, and yes, it sucks. But it’ll be all good when you have your place all set up. Good luck, and may you not loose as many things as I did.

BTW, good job, MIM, this forum was a great idea by NC, and thanks for making it possible so quickly.

Duh….. I just found this forum. Guess I seldom scroll to the bottom of the page…

Does anybody else have trouble with getting shot out of internet explorer when they try to post? If I click on "quote" or "code" (and then delete the stuff that appears) before I type then I’m usually okay, but if I just try to start typing I usually find myself with internet explorer closing itself.

Same problem with edits — I can only manage to edit a post about 1 time out or 4 or 5 trys. That’s why I just deleted the spam (selling cell phones) from the Transport Forum rather than editing it.

Yeah, oldlady, earlier in this thread, Nivid and I mention troubles we’ve had.
I basically just use Mozilla now.

Yup, Mozilla is the way to go. I’ve never had problems with Explorer closing on me, but Mozilla is just better. You won’t want to switch back after you’ve made the move.
