Yeah, looks good Mikey. Thank you. Now I know how my daughters gerbils feel, after she has cleaned up their cage.

As I posted in the other new forum thread, the search function will be fully active shortly. It's still indexing the posts on the board.

We have a new chat. Try it out.

Also feel free to take the ignore function out for a test drive on your favorite poster(s). Simply go to your user control panel and add them to your "foes" list.

The boards are still due for an aesthetic makeover to bring them more into line with the rest of the Zappa site. Currently we're just running the out-of-the-box style.

We also have a "report to moderator" button. If you find old spam threads, please flag them for me and they'll be tidied up.

"This post was made by Isaac who is currently on your ignore list."

Ahhhhh, so nice. Everything looks swell, Mikey. And I can still read a post if I so desire for some unfathomable reason. Danke!

PS(I am sure someone will keep me up to date on the generalities, without my having to read them)

Hey! I can log in now!

I just tried to log in. It said that my password couldn't be recoded and I had to request a new one. So I request a new one, fill in the form, and it says "You are not authorised to request a new password."

Maybe I made a typo? I don't know. But here I am! Image

I don't buy into the whole 'ignore list' idea. If there is anyone here who is seriously disturbed enough that they'd want to pretend that there's ANYONE on this forum whom they find annoying enough to place them on an imaginary block list, I'd advise calling their parents and persuade them to sign them off to a mental health facility. A better use would have been to add a built-in spell check or allow the deletion of older posts. These things would have actually improved the forum, not a built in license to ignore legitimate postings and live in one's own little world, free from the constraints of sanity.

It also seems the blank pages at the end of some older threads have gone away. That is majorly cool, too!

nice upgrade, old posts are not nearly as messed up, board pages all appear to be legit; and the file attachment function is spot fucking on, also like the new font, slightly narrower, maybe a c-hair smaller


many thanks mikester

Ignoring you would be like peering over a small tor into a lea and gesticulating to a hermit who uses beef jerky as snuff.

Wouldn't make much sense.

Go to the top, right corner of the page, click "User Control Panel"
On the left, under "Options", click "Friends or Foes".
Then, under "Options" again", click "Manage Foes".

This works for ignoring other posters, other than Flea, too! :wink:

If you click on someones profile it'll say friend or foe under their avatar also.
Haven't tired it. Yet.

Just for fun, I tried to add myself to my "foes" list. It won't let me do it. It would have been an interesting experiment though, to ignore myself.

Way cooler than the Foe function is the FRIEND Function. I already added a handful...
