hello all. feel free to make comments on the board here. we are new to this board and the interface. we have a list of changes and additions that we are going to impliment over time. so, bare with us.

right now, planning on a pump section.

going to add some stock avatars.

adding more templates.

possibly some new smileys.

Don't make stock avatars... That'll just make multiple people have the same avatars, and make everything confusing for us... ;)

not a problem about the avatars. it was more for those that do not have an artistic ability to make one.


on another note, every attempt was made to try and transfer posts over from the old forum. but was unable to do it. everybody will now start from scratch. sorry.

Durrell I'm sure if you post in the feedback thread everybody that has done business with you will repost's if you ask. JB.

Yeah, so far everyone has been pretty good about it..only problem is the feedback threads go back to Septemberish of 04 so I'm not sure who I've dealt with since then. All I know is that I had 60+ positives, so I'm pretty sure everyone knows that..:)

ABC with a check mark it's in the top right hand corner on all of the reply boxes. I can screenshot if you need to, something may be wrong with your computer.

i think it is the one in the top right corner with the small black "a" slashed over a blue italic underlined "a" because it says editor mode when i scrolled over it

I don't have the ABC with a check mark. I'm on Netscape, could that make a difference? I'm going to try signing on in explorer and see what happens.


EDITED:Yup, logged in on explorer now and I have the ABC with the check mark. So maybe a bug that needs to be worked out.

The only thing i dont like is how the posters info is on top of their post instead of on the left like the old, and i liked the black and orange on the other baord. it was unique. But nothing i can get used to.

anyway we could get the old feeback threads? or anyway to atleast be able to look at them, to know who to contact to get them to leave feedback again??? That would be nice.

OtterSC
01-02-2006, 11:20 AM
sorry, we have/will phase them out. and as said before, tried to transfer with no success.

OtterSC
01-04-2006, 05:11 AM
k, all. so far we have added 3 new styles. Firefox, Alien and Darkside.

Team Ramrod
01-04-2006, 09:11 AM
is there any way to expand the new skins to make them fit the whole page? instead of having some space on both sides? i like darkside but i dont like how its not the size of the page. thus im stuck with liquid.

phatphil
01-14-2006, 05:23 PM
If I designed a custom theme would you/could you implement it Otter? Any chance you have a master list of all the files needed for a skin, or a folder of images to start with so I have dimensions?
