As a followup to the new profile option that was recently added, I have gone through our forum options and changed a few things around.

The restructure isnt too serious, although if you are confused as to what is going on, here is a rundown:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-"Suggestions" forum pruned.

-Line option for Announcement/ Sticky posts activated. Announcements and Stickies will now appear separated from topics in the forums.

-Multi-quote activated. You can now quote up to 3 other users posts into one reply.

-All images will now be resized to 800px (pixel) width. This is what SERVIMG sets their images to, so now all images hosted off from SERVIMG should resize automatically.

-Banned members are no longer able to view messages.

-Portal page (www.atltf.com) revamped.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As always with restructure there will be bugs. If you notice problems with anything, please feel free to post it below so it can be addressed quickly.

Thank you.

Cool Doug. I can't get used to the 'Latest topics' section being on the right hand side on the Portal Page.

Noted. I tried rearranging some stuff, the Portal had been neglected for some time. Ill move it back to the upper left.

I have a bookmark to all latest posts so I typically dont see the Portal. Didnt occur that a lot of you guys probably land there.


Everything else look ok so far?

one little thing that i doubt affect people as much, when you click on a link to a thread (such as from the portal), when you go back to the portal and the thread that you clicked is a different color. It used to be blue and had a great contrast to the green and was really easy to tell which ones you've viewed and which ones you haven't. now its kind of a mint green, which is harder to see the contrast. if you could change that, that would be great. If not, no big deal

Ill play with it some more. I was trying to get a color closer to the normal link color so it didnt disrupt signatures and the like.

You're doing great work. As a newer member, I can say at first the forum was a bit intimidating, but quickly got accustom to the format and it has gotten better since.

Thanks. Yea forums have a bit of a learning curve, but once you work with it a little it becomes second nature.

Its something that was brought up in Sprockets Garage. It allows people to vote up/down individual posts. Its still a work in progress, which is why I havent posted about it yet, but its still there to play with now.

I'm curious about the vote up and down? Is it something that works like a facebook "Like"?

Kind of. Once you vote, a bar appears there and changes similar to the Youtube like bar. A vote up or down gets added to the users rep and changes it by 1 point in either direction. So if you were to like this post, the bar would be green and I would gain +1 rep. If 4 people liked it and 2 disliked it, I would have +2 rep and the bar would be mostly green.

If that makes sense. Again, I havent fully tested it yet so im still figuring stuff out too. There will be a full writeup once I get it all figured out and explained.

Comparing it to youtube made a lot of sense.  Interesting where you could go with "rep" like if a person has a lot or Positive or Negative rep?

study

The "Thumbs Up" and down are MUCH better than the +|- that was on the side.
