We are testing out new board changes in this section, which includes an ad within the first post.

Other features coming include:
  1. Sortable columns
  2. Edit and Print Icons next to each post (not available just yet)
  3. "Create New Thread" Button Added (replaces text link)
  4. Color coded member status (gold, platinum, etc...)
  5. Slightly revised login panel/box.
  6. Slightly revised "add message" form
  7. Some font changes
  8. "Forum Search" button added to header

everyting is great accept for that add thing... i know those things ginerate money... it looks like i post, and there a add on the side(thats fine) but then another add thing like a second post?? if you could have it just on the first post and not like a second thing that would be alot better:-)

i love the member color things and the other stuff, alot actually looks really good... but could the adds be just one post instead of makin a second one on their own "Relevant Product Info "

Are saying to move the "Relevant Product Info" automated post into the first post so it looks like it's all together? Or move it down the page? Or remove it entirely?

The idea of the "Relevant Product Info" is to automatically generate related deals about the topic of discussion. However, there may not always be a match, in which case it will display a random product.

I am still tweaking this idea, so your input would be greatly appreciated.

^^^ Sarcastic, but true nevertheless...I'm sure it (the ads) will not cut down the traffic considerably

In regards to No Limit Soldier's comment, I think I just made the change you requested.

I think for the option:

"Color coded member status (gold, platinum, etc...) "

you should just change the colour of the text only like for "No Limit Soldier" you have "silver member" coloured light blue, those buttons dont look good but hey its just my opinion. I think different coloured text for different status would be nice instead of those big coloured button things...

If you reload this page, you should see only the text colored now.

What do you all think? Do you like the colors or find them too distracting?

Here goes my 2 cent
Color Coded for gold members and above is a very good idea,I know LK will like it, just like being in the Army, how many stripes will LK get with over (14,000)Post?
A logo or a picture above the color would also look good

Pesonally none of these ideas, thrill me..all eyewash and no substance...

if ya gonna make some changes...do some with IMPACT...like add more mods...ban troubled people...have sub categories within a forums..it would take all of 30 minutes to do these things with the admin control panel

EX"...Satellite Forums
1..Pansat
2..Viewsat
3..Coo*lsat
4..Converted Receivers
5..Dish Pointing
6..Hardware
7..Getting Started
etc

doing things like color coding status is all childish and of little importance..U people are really getting your rocks off with this useless color coding crap...geez

I hate the ads. I know you've gotta make money just like everyone else, but can you do something else? The ad in the first post is extremely annoying. Please move/remove it.

I am testing out a new look in the section. The ads in the first post have been removed, and the login panel has been moved to the right.

I like some of the ideas, but you need to allow specific mods for certain sections. WE CAN HELP! The people who frequent whichever particular forum they post on want to make it better! There are constant spammers and members joining to start trouble and everything else! We want to help, but you wont give us the opportunity to. Start us off with limited power and see how we deal with it. Our approach will be much different than what you think. I promise.

I am still working on this...

I have decide to completely remove the first post ad as the overwhelming sentiment was negative about it.

I will be up late working on this tonight, so hopefully it will be fixed by morning.

We'll have to put the board in maintenance mode (which disables new posts) while we install the update. It will likely take about 1-2 hours to completely update.
