dvdtalk forum changes?
 
maybe this should be in the feedback forum.. but what new features were added
i was busy at work, and missed any discussion on this.. I looked around and didnt see anything about it

I see you get a (partial?) list of people currently in the forum at the top..

there seems to be a check mark over our name while we are posting??

what else?

twikoff 10-31-01 08:08 PM

edit: looks to be back to normal

was there a test being done?

namja 10-31-01 08:09 PM

maybe he's up to something .... (oh yeah, i saw that)

Seeker 10-31-01 08:11 PM

Yeah well --- I see you are currently online right now, so the changes are there...

focker 10-31-01 08:18 PM

The changes just appeared in the last half hour or so. I really like the checkmarks that show who's online, but the forum has slowed to a crawl.

Added after crash: They seem to have crashed it too.

Da Thrilla 10-31-01 08:19 PM

I saw it too

skar 10-31-01 08:19 PM

First DVDTalk crash I've ever seen.

I just did an update to the forum software and then did some file maintaince to hopefully fix a problem that was slowing things down.

ok.. so the little check by the user name shows if the user is online.. but does that mean online in that specific forum, or on any dvdtalk forum?

It's like checking if the refrigerator light turns off when you shut the door :)...

I think it means anywhere online at the DVDtalk forum.

RandyC 10-31-01 09:43 PM

Oh..it looks like the mods are not included. I am not here. :)

twikoff 10-31-01 11:01 PM

of course you can edit your profile to browse in invisible mode.. then it wouldnt ever look like your here

but since Im here at all times anyways.. no reason for me to try to hide it ;)

it would probably be bad if we always knew exactly when the mods were around

The answer is no. Your light is off

Don't forget the "forum leaders" link in the bottom right corner of the main page, shows a list of admins, super mods, and moderators.

Also, I think there is the option of marking a forum read instead of just marking them all read.
