Message to everyone..

Post by BarcaRulz on Fri Nov 28, 2008 3:27 pm

Hello people.. First of all, it's great to see so many of the forum regulars have already signed up and begun to initiate themselves into this forum. Just under 400 posts in 2 and a bit days shows that everyone is still very much interested in FM (the game that is).

Anyway, i am traveling in exactly 24 hours to have myself a well-earned 3-month vacation. Obviously, while i am on said travel i won't be able to log in, so i'll be incommunicado for a few days. If you are having any problems, you know who to call, GHOSTBUSTERS!, but if they don't pick up then you can drop a line in to Mods to take care of things (SS, Buscemi, Geez).

Also, alot of people on FM still don't know we are manually resurrecting the game, so please, if anyone is able to, just tell people on the league message boards to visit this forum, the more the merrier.

Finally, just a couple of questions regarding the site:

1. Would you like to see more sub-forums? I have been thinking of adding a Sports one. Any other ideas?

2. Is anyone interested in this forum having a 'chat' facility? Basically it allows members who are online and logged into the chat-box to.. erm.. chat, kida like MSN.

3. Anything about this forum you don't like? If it's fixable i'll look into it.

4. Anyone interested in side-widgets? They appear on the left hand side of the forum page, and can be things like "latest posts" "quick search" and links to other sites (notably Shrykes one..) and probably BoxOfficeMojo and DHD.

Anyway, let me know what you guys think. Anything that you guys would want will have to wait for a while though, I should be back by the 5th of Dec at the latest.

1) I don't think we need any more sub-forums at this time. I think if there is a pressing need, the community will let us know.
2) I would love to have a chat feature. Would be great and would also make for less clutter on the boards.
3) Its going well enough so far, my only concerns have already been voiced, and i think I even over-reacted then.
4) Maybe you can toy around with some things. See how it works, what the response is. You can always remove them right?

The 'Chat' feature sounds good. I'm all for the quick links to the latest posts etc, as everytime I come on to the site, I check every category to see if anyone's posted anything interesting so that would be of a great help.

Pretty much echoing others' thoughts, here, but I like the chat idea, and also the quick links widget.

1) I think we should have a couple more sub-forums, like tthe Sports and maybe a Video Game one. But I don't think it's extremely important right now.

2) I'm either or on the chat thing.

Did you save it when you typed it in. I know it sounds stupid, but I know it took me a couple of go's to get mine working. And even then, I think it sometimes takes a little time for the forum to insert them into your posts for some reason. I'm not sure what I can do as a mod, but I'm sure when Barca gets back he can sort it....

EDIT: Check your preferences too, one of the tabs asks to always attach your sig.

Maybe you need to host the picture using tinypic or photobucket, rather than uploading straight from the website.

Thanks for the replies fellas. The Chat seems to be popular and the widgets as well. I'll put them up as soon as i have some time over here.

JI the sig thing probably has something to do with it being from a website. You need to host your own picture on a website like imageshack.us.
