Board Functionality
« on: February 02, 2009, 08:15:08 AM »
First, thanks Sanjeev for coming through with the message board format.  At first glance, it looks great -- simple/functional.  Just a couple questions though. . .

Will uploadable avatars be available?  Freddie Prinz Jr. is awesome, but I might want to use something else.

Are videos postable?  Should be standard by now, but it's not obvious as I type this up that it is possible.

Maybe this thread could be a repository for board function Q&A?

Hi Zarley,

I didn't think anyone would want to use avatars, but I guess alot of people might.  I'll turn on that function so that you can also upload anything you want...just keep it clean guys! 

You can upload videos, etc.  I'm still learning how to do some of that stuff, so keep playing around with it and tell me what you find out.  I'll fiddle with all those features later on once I get the membership stuff done and archive the old posts from the MSN Board.  It's probably a good idea for users to post questions and anything new they've learned on this thread. 

Thanks very much!

Thanks Sanjeev.  I know you have your hands full; your efforts are much appreciated.

I like using avatars.  For me, I get to know posters by their avatar and it can make for a much faster visual filter if I'm looking for a post by a particular person.

For those not in the Boards time zone you should change your time offset.  Helped me to easily understand what new messages came in.

Right now the board does not seem to be in the board's time zone. Unless Sanjeev has moved to Alberta.  :)

Ok, I adjusted my profile time offset, but I'm not sure it changed the servers time.  I believe you can use the "auto-detect" on the profile page to adjust your offset and that should correct things.  Let me know if you guys notice other stuff.  There are just so many options, I'm not sure what has been adjusted and what hasn't!  Cheers!

Sanjeev,

This board is going to be Fri**ing awesome!

Great job! The bugs will work themselves out.

We've got to get everyone over here. I'm ready to abandon MSN now.

Cheers!

Sanj,

Can you check your settings on PM's (Private Messages)?

I would think this would be a useful tool for members to contact each other. I was just trying to send you a PM but don't seem to be able to. Unless I'm missing where.
