Just tryin' it out.  Wondering what will appear below my name...which I should have made Diane Allen, but didn't.  Oh well, I guess until someone else in Moab signs up, I'm pretty well identified!

You can check this out Diane, http://nadacforum.com/index.php?topic=7.0     

That explains how to change your 'name' so that it appears right.

Your username used to log in will still be the same, but the appearance will be different.

Hey Chris,

Is there a way to have this notify us via email of any new posts like the Yahoo Group does?  I have looked but cant seem to figure out if it can or not.

Looking good! I'm on quite a few forums, this one seems to  be easier to navigate in some ways.

Pretty nice format Chris...I like it's look and feel

I am also guessing because it is not an email group then people will be a lot happier about not getting heaps of emails etc....   Yhey either read the board or don't :)

In a way.

You can enter a board, and then on the top right is a 'notify' option.

That will send you a email whenever someones posts in that board.

You would need to repeat the process for each board

WOW!  You've been a busy boy, Chris!  First Amanda's site and now this.  What a wonderful improvement and so much easier to navigate.

I just hope the time stamps are wrong, or you aren't getting any sleep!  Thought I was the only insomniac!

AND OMG, it corrects spelling!  I've died and gone to heaven!!

Is there any way to do away with or move the "Main Menu" box to the left of the screen?  It is messing with the layout of the board for me.  I have to move the scroll bar to the right to view the entire posting box, but when I do so the names of the posters disappear beneath the Main Menu box.  It would be really nice if that could be placed elsewhere....

I see on the top of this reply box that "this post will not display until it's been approved by a moderator."  Well, that kind of does away with the "instant conversation" feel of every other bb I belong to.....  The nice thing about a bb vs. a moderated Yahoo group is the conversational feel that it allows.  If this bb is going to have a moderation filter on every post, I ultimately feel NADAC is better off sticking with the Yahoo format where the posts will continue to be delivered to everyone's mailboxes.

We might make it an option where the 'themes' can be changed for each individual person.   

And thanks for the input.

My only comment so far is that doing the original load of the page takes a long time (longer than most other sites). Not sure if this is a host or server issue. I haven't timed it yet (thought about it), but it's definitely slow right now. Once I'm on the site, things move just fine.

I got the same feeling. I'm quite active on some other bb's, the moderator moves the posts if they belong in a different section, but you do not have to have every post approved. I really don't care for this "every post needs to be seen before posted" thing.

Some more dumb blonde questions.

If I would like to reply specifically to post #x in a thread it looks like I can only add my comment at the very end of the list of replies?

Also there is no "like" button - what's up with that?

If you click on 'notify'to in the top right you will get emails each time someone posts to the board :)
