Your welcome Ryan 8)

Will attend to some other things about the forum tomorrow, I need to fix my SVN repository because after reinstalling my PC it thinks my site repository is a BDB repository but I used the FSFS to make it portable. Really annoying.. :cry:

Did I mention these forums are neat? No more searching through mailing lists, no sir :).

The mass moderate feature is pretty handy, too!

On topic - mayby you want to try out the image thing (from the poll) and see how it goes?

Hi Ryan,

Yeah sure .. I had a bit of a delay at home because I reinstalled everything last weekend, and my previous week was a bit busy (yes I consider this friday as weekend already, although I am still at work ;-)) ..

Thanks for the kind words, we are slowly growing now, and I see more and more people from the mailinglist are taking the step, which is good :-)

I might think of more to make like a CMS (content management system) with a front end which shows the most recent posts, a side bar etc. I will have to look at that later on.

The images will be implemented when I get home (and when I don't forget ofcourse ;-))

- Jorgen

On some forums, they have different ranks for normal people, moderators, and administrators.

I.E. "Super Moderator", "Moderator", etc...

Ok your wish has been granrted Ryan, your image says "moderator" ;-) this image set does not have Super Moderator etc, but it does has "Spammer" which we might reserve for people posting more times then anybody else on the forum! hehehe

I think this is good enough for now, right ?

EDIT: We might also add other special ranks for people being at the board a long time, but do not wish to have moderator status. Like "Fossile" or "Part of the furniture" :lol:

LOL!! Thanks a lot Jorg!!

I was kind of hoping for a "Shy Moderator" ranking, but oh well :).

You can't. We disabled this feature. You can however link to your avatar and store it off-site.

Maybe we should rethink this, seeing that we now allow uploads for attachments.
