Adding some new things this weekend. Among them:


The membership lister - check it out by clicking on the "member list" link on the top level of the message forums.
I've enhanced the levels a bit. Now you get "gold stars" next to each of your posts. The more posts, the more stars... http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif


More to come...

Cheers.
Scott

Almost forgot - take a look at the membership lister's "Top 25 posters" feature to see who the most active posters are... http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Cheers,
Scott

Scott--

I am new to the forums and have tried to go through them to get a feel for what is going on here. So far, I really like what I see. It looks like you are the person who takes care of things, so if I get stumped, I'll let you know.

Scott: Checked out the membership list and did the sort by top 25 thing. Smiled when I saw my alter ego listed amoung the top 25 as well? You see, sometimes I just have to be two people at the same time. lol

Yeah, just when I go and change my username and start all over, you start giving out stars! Well, I can't give up my stars, so looks like I'll have to stay 'robinsn' http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Seriously tho, cool features!

I see that the Great Bruin is in a star catagory all his own. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
Scott, I noticed that, except for 'top 25', all of the sort options take you back to alphabetical.

Actually, the sort is really a "sub-sort" type thing. With the exception of the Top 25 posters sorting, the other sorts still sort alphabetically, but sub sort by other fields (posts, registration date, etc.).

The thought on posting many small "hi there" things crossed my mind too.

henrik
02-14-2000, 04:40 PM
But then I thought - that is sooooo cheap.

henrik
02-14-2000, 04:41 PM

02-14-2000, 06:56 PM

Mich451
02-14-2000, 06:57 PM
