Was going to post in an existing thread but decided to start this separately.
I tried posting (twice) in Sobe's FordEurope:Iosis
thread and got a "Needs to be Approved" msg. Is this a software glitch/'permissions' problem?
other stuff (Feedback/Suggestions
- please, not to be construed as criticisms - just throwing out ideas
- Until other forum areas are added, maybe have a standardized thread title format (like this thread?) or sticky thread (like this thread?) for reporting "issues"?
- Sobe's excellent HistoryLesson thread makes me think maybe
we could have an appropriate area for 'archivable' content? (took me a minute to re-find that thread just now) or are 'Tags' possible? &
- would putting GenDiscussion first on the forum list be good as a 'default' area? For a still-new forum, might it help generate a 'critical mass' area & make it easier to find the bulk of new posts? maybe even (temporarily?) incorporating the FordBrand & CorpNews sections?
- Does the 'Propose a Report or News Article' section imply a news ticker is being considered? Seems we're just starting news threads in the subject category... & consequently the very first section on the forum list is a mostly unused section :-p
- Could we have public groups/memberships? I've seen this feature listed in the profiles of serveral forums but never implemented (not like I want to officially get the MercuryMafia started
Moi? Tho it might be fun to declare specific affliations? adding categories as warranted?)
...think I had more but my puter crashed during previous starts at this...
- re-asking where chops should be posted? Tavern or GenDiscussion or either/don't-obsess-over-it?
- it's probably my antique puter system (don't ask
) but I can't create a sig or upload/link my avatar
(or this slightly larger one
). Can I ask a mod/admin to do it for me?
+ cross-referencing (OCD can be fun
- Photochops/SuggestionBox area: link
that's it for now - back to indexing my socks
