  1. We were long overdue for an update to a post Mike made a couple of years ago about some of the common forum features. The platform the forum runs on has gone through several updates since then with some new features and new locations of old features. You can read the updated post here: Forum Features. Who knows? You might just learn something.
  2. I updated this quick little guide on how to use some of the more common forum features that you may find useful as the forum platform has gone through several updates since the original post was made. Please use the "Like This" button when you want to thank someone for a post. Do not clutter up a thread with Thanks! Great Post! Good information. kind of posts. The forum gives you several different options to react to posts by other members. Just hover over the heart shaped button you will find in the bottom right corner of every post. When you hover over it, you will see a list of options including Like, Thanks, Haha, Confused, and Sad. Now if you have something specific you want to mention about the post and thank the poster for, by all means, do so. Otherwise, just use the reaction options provided. If you want to quote multiple posts from the same thread, use the multiquote button to do so in one post. In the bottom left of each post you will see a link that says Quote. To the left of that is a box with a plus sign in it. Click on that for each post you would like to quote. Another option the forum provides for quoting a message is to highlight text in a post and you will see a pop message asking if you would like to quote that text. If you want to find other posts of a particular user, visit their profile page by clicking on their username. Then click on the button that says See their activity. You will see a new menu appear on the left side of the screen. Click on the Posts button for all of their posts or on the Topics button to just see threads they have started. You have several options for how you view the forum: Table (which is the default setting), Grid, and Fluid. You will see these options at the top of the forum and can switch between them at anytime. If you find a particular thread useful or interesting and would like to be notified when others post in the thread, there is a Follow button at the top right of the screen when you open the thread. You will several options for how often you would like to be notified when new content is posted, including immediately, daily, and weekly. You will be emailed a notification when others have posted replies. This feature can be especially useful if you post a question and would like to be notified when someone answers your question. You can stop following a topic by clicking on the same button again. Edit your account settings by clicking on your name at the top right of the screen and selecting the Account Settings option. This is where you would change things like contact information, your forum signature, and notification options. If you would like to change your forum signature, select "Signature" on the left hand column menu after you have picked Account Settings. Please be sure to read our rules on forum signatures. To edit your profile, click on Profile from that same drop down menu and then select Edit Profile in the top right corner of your profile. If you try to read a forum thread and are greeted by this message... ...it is because there are private areas of the forum reserved for those who have joined the Spartan Inner Circle Membership. All members are welcome to join. You can learn more about the Spartan Inner Circle here. You can also join at any time by clicking on the "Store" menu option at the top of the forum and selecting the membership. These are many of the basic functions of the forum that we hope will improve your experience here. I'll post more as they are added or that I think members will find useful.

    Switch to HTTPS

    The entire site has switched over to HTTPS today. I could not take looking at that unsecured notification in the browser any longer, and Mike said as long as I don't "$%#& up the whole forum, go ahead and do it." I'm doing some spot checking. Everything seems to be working okay, but if you find any broken links or other problems, please either post them here or submit a ticket. Thanks, Ash

    Clubs

    Hang-gliding while drinking beer and you have a deal.

    Clubs

    We have been internally messing around with this club option a bit, and frankly it is just way too cool not to put to use. So we are going to open it up to any members that want to start a club. The topics have to be related to online or offline marketing. No clubs about flying kites or how much you love cats, although Mike insists that if someone wants to start a beer lovers club he would probably approve it. If you have ever wanted to run your own private forum or membership site without all the hassles of setting up a private forum or membership site, this is for you. A few things. All new clubs must be approved by myself or Mike. When you go to the club page, you will enter in a little bit of information, and then it will go into a queue for approval. Send Mike or me a PM letting us know that you want to start the club and give us a small summary of what your plans are for it. You can have a completely public club where anyone can join and participate, an open club where anyone can view inside but must join to participate, a closed club where everyone can see that the club exists and who is in it but only members can view and participate, or a totally private club which only members would know exists. You can drive membership to your club however you wish. You can even charge for membership if you want to. That is up to you. We will give you a free listing in the Special Offers section if you want one to help drive membership. Moderation of your club will be left up to you and any additional moderators you choose to appoint. We will only step in if there is an issue with promoting violence, hate, etc. All of this is free. We are not charging for the clubs. Also if you have an idea for a club but just want to know a little more about the features and how the clubs work, send a PM to Mike or myself and we will be glad to help. Have a great weekend! Ash

    The Forum Has Been Upgraded

    I'm going to go ahead and shut this thread down. Don't worry. The insults have not gone unnoticed, but considering the source, they are not worth worrying about.

    The Forum Has Been Upgraded

    Fixed this. Gravatars were not enabled. Also forum signatures are back on.

    The Forum Has Been Upgraded

    On the down side, it seems some avatars are not working... Back end might still be working on updating that though.

    The problem we were having with not being able to take people off the ignore list is now fixed.

    Political Discussions Are No Longer Allowed

    Simple. Just look at the Donald Trump thread for example. It's just one side ranting against the other side. It's no longer a discussion. It is just people posting whatever nonsense they can find on the internet. And most of it is from people who never participate anywhere else on the forum, so accommodating them is something I just have no interest in. There is just no benefit to allowing those kind of conversations any longer. We may relook at this decision in the future, but certainly not until after the election. There have just been far too many complaints about the threads.

    Political Discussions Are No Longer Allowed

    I have shutdown a few of the bigger threads. I really do not feel like going through every single post in the OT area to identify political posts. Please don't inundate me with reports that I missed this one or that one. For the most part, we are just going to leave up what is up and enforce the rule going forward.
  12. Up until this point, political discussions have been tolerated on this forum. However, they have grown out of hand. I just received a message from Mike that we will be no longer allowing political discussions here. I will be updating the rules today and working on closing some threads as I find them. Thanks for your understanding and support. Ash
