Re: HERE YE! HERE YE! THE FORUM OVERHAUL IS COMING!

A forum update would be welcomed but more members are crucial to the survival. I don't remember ever seeing anything in N&V about the forum! Why not? Are we orphans? I agree on the membership. We need more real folks here but, for that to happen, there needs to be more here here! :smile: As for orp...

Re: HERE YE! HERE YE! THE FORUM OVERHAUL IS COMING!

I don't suppose any one has proposed "Captcha" for keeping spammers off the site? Thou,It seems we aren't be inundated by as much spam of late. <snip> Actually, we had a captcha system in place and the spam-bots would blow right past it. We were getting about 40 to 60 new "users" that had successfu...

Re: HERE YE! HERE YE! THE FORUM OVERHAUL IS COMING!

Fix the HTML code to fill out the META NAMES for "keywords" and "description" As it is now, they are both blank. I already pointed this out in the "Where is everybody?" thread. Noted and already being discussed with the server admin. Thanks for the heads up! (and the persistence!) :smile: Put the l...

Re: HERE YE! HERE YE! THE FORUM OVERHAUL IS COMING!

I believe what Mr.Al is getting at is the ability to upload an image to the N&V server That is most likely right, but unfortunately there are a number of downsides with allowing "uploading" the images to the board. OTTOMH- spammers, increased bandwidth & file storage, copyright issues... even "inap...

Re: HERE YE! HERE YE! THE FORUM OVERHAUL IS COMING!

One feature of the forum that would help a lot i think would be to give the readers/posters a way to upload a schematic drawing (or even another type of drawing really) directly or indirectly to the forum page. CanDo! :smile: This function is already possible using the board as it currently is. Met...

Re: HERE YE! HERE YE! THE FORUM OVERHAUL IS COMING!

Hi Ya Vern Nice to see change on the horizon. Something that has my curiosity is what is the plan to promote? As can be seen it is pretty quiet around here.
