Hi guys. I made this topic because I want to have each of your comments or ideas, about the new site and this forum, right here. There are lots of changes, some visible and some not, and some of you want different things, have different opinions, etc.

So please post here:
  • - your comments on the new site
    - your comments on the forum's dark theme
    - what features you want added or removed from the forum
    - what features you want added or removed from the main site
I'll read and answer to each and every comment, and if it's doable, I'll do it asap.

Thank you. :)

You're welcome. :)

Update: I've added a new section on the main site, "CarverFest Galleries". I'll upload here all the photos from each CF edition. So far there's 2007, 2008 and 2010, but he gallery will be updated as I get the images from James.

And yes, I know there's a lot of images on one page, but I'll add the pagination and set the gallery to about 50 images per page.

New front page looks good...have not explored much yet tho. Personally don't like the dark motif, but as long as I can still revert it back to the old forum format, I don't mind. But the basic new set=up looks like an improvement.

LR: AudioEngine wireless link from family room preamp to Barcus-Berry 2002R Sonic Maximizer to GlowPower Zyxt IC's to Sunfire 300x2 to Nordost 6M bi-source wires to AOS 28" MDF spherical speakers using six 6.5" woofers and eight 1" dome tweeters symm. arranged around the surface.

I've wanted this one for years......

Yeah, you can do something for me. Whenever someone quotes the entire post of somebody who just rambled on for 3 pages worth of typing followed by 15 pictures larger than the screen itself to only post 4 words them self, could you set it up to where the signal automatically gets sent to activate the mechanical boot underneath the posters desk?

Thanks, man.

Thank you. I'm thinking about adding a light theme to the site as well, so you can switch there too if you wish.

:lol: There's a way to "snip" the quoted text if it's larger than x characters and also removes the quoted images, showing just a "snipped image" text. If this would be something many of you want, I'll add it to the forum.

No, thanks.

Post by treitz3 » Mon Apr 18, 2011 4:35 pm

Naw, I appreciate it. The auto snip may cut off what the original poster may say [that has relevance to the topic/comment answered/replied to] and sometimes the poster answer the question within the post. It's annoying but not as annoying as trying to rebuild and/or decipher what the member was trying to answer or comment about to begin with.

A good example would be 3 pages worth of typing that was quoted and the question that was answered would be lost somewhere on page two. With the auto snip, I would imagine that it would take too long to go back to the original post and figure out what the hell the question was to begin with [let alone find the original post].......One would think that you could figure out the question just based on the answer but with some of these cats? I dunno, man. Sometimes it's easier to try and figure out why most Orientals don't have a beard, if you know what I mean.


Hey, I do have a suggestion though that may help. On the V.Bulletin boards, they have a "post" number, if you will that are all numbered sequentially and displayed somewhere on the individual posts. Is there any way to do that here without redoing the whole damned thing? Reason I ask, is it makes it easier sometimes to reference a certain thread, post# [whatever] in conversations. If it's a pain, don't worry about it but if it can be done? It'll help. Especially in the planning of Carverfest.

Arrgh!

Post by treitz3 » Mon Apr 18, 2011 5:31 pm

James, I was able to link your post when I hit the highlighted dots but the only thing I could link from that point on is the link referenced in your post. I couldn't link another post on another thread.

Teach me how to do this, please. This is all I'm able to link, no matter how many times I hit the highlighted dots on posts on other threads....or this thread for that matter. I'm doing something wrong, apparently.
