    Hi Joe,

    I was wondering if your site has the capability to run a chat page for currently logged on memebers?

    Would this take alot of programming?

    Cheers matey

    Joe, I think it looks awesome! I like the chat mode idea, but just a practical note. Could you tone down the BikeForums header a bit, I don't want my boss to get kick my butt for viewing BikeForums, when it is obviously a priority!

    Joe,

    Everything looks great. I have to second Alpha's recommendation on toning down the BikeForums Header. Maybe you could have two versions...one for at home and one for work.

    I completely agree to make the Bike Forums header MUCH smaller. Everything else looks fantastic.

    Great job!

    Oh yeah, one more thing:

    Is it possible to leave the BF header out once you have logged on or to just show the header on the main page. Every time I look at a different discussion topic or post a message, the header appears again. I just want to make sure no one at work gets caught

    Thanks again Joe!

    Joe,

    The changes are outstanding!! I really like the looks of it, but I too must agree with the others about the size of the header. I work at a "help desk" and my supervisor sits close to me and the large header is a dead giveaway that I am not on the phone with a customer.
    I like the smilies and formatting tools being on the same page I am typing on. Great job!!

    Ron

    I guess this is the same as in the old version, but I'm just more on the lookout for things because of the revision. But I'm bothered by the space "Report this post to a moderator" takes up at the bottom of each space. I agree that there should be a mechanism for easily doing that, but out of all the posts I've read on the forum, I've only seen one or two that possibly merited reporting. So maybe if you could make that more discreet....

    Thanks for all the work and long hours. Please don't lose so much sleep you get fired and have to abandon the Forum, because there's probably nobody else in the world that would be willing to take it over! (Also please don't get a better job, for the same reason! )

    I can change the header for ya. I have been thinking about a live chat for quite some time, yes it is posible, i'll try to find out more information today. Jon, on the last version the "report this thread to moderator" was a button called "warn", I'll make another warn and IP button that match the current style asap.

    Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming.

    Well, Joe I will tell you once again what a great job you've done. I posted in another thread before reading this one.

    Everything looks great...:thumbup:

    This place is like a drug addiction. I need a smaller Bike Forums banner at the top so I can get my fix at work without getting busted.

    Am I the only one who thinks that if BikeForums went under, the productivity of the world would greatly increase? Keep it going, Joe...this is way more fun than work!!!

    One quick question: What is the "IP" button? I've been afraid to push one to find out.

    One quick suggestion: Could you not have the "edit/delete" button except on posts by the person viewing? It's meaningless on the others, except for you (the administrator), and you probably have another way of accessing anyway....

    Thanks-- :thumbup:

    Joe,

    You're the man. This site is outta site. I truthfully think the banner looks great...It's just my boss won't think so. I think the solution is to go STEALTH mode. It seems fitting for bikers, because we're always in stealth mode aren't we.

    I must concur with Jon. We've gotta protect your job too!

    Better than ever Joe!

    The only thing I was wondering about was if I can make the font smaller, or is it fixed. Each post seems to take up more room on the screen than before. But that's picking nits!

    Could this be something to do with how your browser is interpreting something that got changed? I use IE 5.5 and the font and space consumed seem the same as before. But I've seen other sites that made changes that my browser obviously had trouble with....

    Thanks Jon, I solved the problem(?) by using my own preferences on Netscape.

    I hope this site works fully in netscape, netscape is very hard to to design for with so many tables. Im still trying to come up with a new header / logo for the forums, if anyone is good at that, feel free to give suggestions, im horible at graphics. Fubar, i think you were the one who requested the spell checker back, sadly i was using spellchecker.net and they have closed up shop for the free spell checker. They now charge $50 for each 1000 times used, i dont have the money to offer that, it would add another $135 or so to my monthly bill. However, i have some plans i'll introduce in the next few weeks, hopefully we can get the spell check back.

    Misspelled words don't bother me--it's the meaning that matters. Sometimes people I correspond with misspell the same words the same way time after time, and it's like hearing their voice, I like it!
