Forum Upgrade and New Features
« on: October 01, 2011, 01:56:32 AM »
Ok so by now you have noticed the updated forum.

Its quite a substantial upgrade for functionality.

Some new features are as follows

- Links database, you can go in and add links to your favourite VW sites for everyone to see!
- Gallery, this is a trial, not sure if it will stay but it will be reviewed
- Attachment posting, increased the max file sizes and thumbnail sizes
- Todays Posts, you will see a button on the menu bar to list all posts of the day
- AllStars Only Board, this will be where deals for members and other related info will be (keep it on topic or it will be removed, this isnt a secret board)

I will update the list as I go

Feel free to post questions here about changes.

Also added a member map through Google where you add a pin on the world map of where your at through your profile.

Best just an approx location or where you'd like to be!

I think the "karma" has gotten old, and should go.

Oh, sorry, I withdraw my suggestion.

Not moving, you must have me confused with someone else.

You are doing an amazing job with this forum. ;)

Funny about the karma thing, I was just thinking this morning it had been a while since a good karma war went on.....

nothing like spending 2 hours clicking the smite button.......

Chris I gave you a Smite just to make you feel better.

Now, excuse me for being completely blind...but where is the "todays posts" button?

Added the "Super Secret Promos!" section!

The reason for this is that to give you access to Telus deals I have to know you. It is not limited to deals I can give you, anyone can use this board to post info!

This can be used for posting any other promos that ASF Members can give to other members, if you need something password protected let me know and I will arrange it.
