Avatars are generally image files, although lots of people upload animated gifs as an alternative to video.

As for signatures, I've disabled HTML at the moment for 2 reasons. The first reason is for security issues, as it is quite easy for any web savvy individual to exploit. Secondly, I'm going to try to keep the forum as clean from clutter as possible right now until I can fully determine what speed issues some members are experiencing.

I will keep everyone updated.

Sorry about that, Doc. I should have been more clear. HTML is currently disabled for signatures. Nothing else has changed.

new to the forum but wanted to make a couple of suggestions

1- i think it would be very helpful to a lot of the members here if the admins created a permanent "Computer Help" thread...i'm sure there are a lot of computer savy people here at RF ( i'm not one of them ) that could help solve other members problems with laptops, software etc etc etc

2- a small detail but one that i find bothersome...would it be possible to have any links that are posted to appear in a different color than the normal text ?

it would just help differentiate it from the rest of the post

thanks for any feedback this post receives

Just a quick point about suggestion no.1. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to make an official computer help thread, but at the same time people are free to use the general 'entertainment / off topic forum' to ask specific computer or technical questions that they may have. People have done it in the past. I know i have on a few occasions.

the thing i like about having a specific thread to each question is then at least the conversation tends to revolve around the initial issue at hand.

I agree fancy.

And as for the links, we try and bold the word link and make it coloured.

If other people want to start doing it when they post a new thread too it would be great. I don't want to enforce it per se, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

All you do is replace the second part with the word link.

ex.

[url="http://www.google.ca/webhp?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8"]http://www.google.ca/webhp?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8--[url]

Good point. I didn't even think of that.

- We tried a chat, there was very little interest and people seem to dig just using the game thread
- I can forward your suggestions about the asthetics to the powers that be.
- We actually do all try and go to at least one game a year. Raptorman is generous enough to help us out with tickets at massively affordable prices (check out raptorman.ca and buy all of your tickets from him). There will usually be something posted once the season starts.

Thanks for the suggestions.

-we tried live game chat and it sucked. the game threads were better and more enjoyable.

-usually raptorman (ticket specialist) devotes together a game or two that he offers to RF members, so that part of your suggestion is already in play.

EDIT: Acie beat me to it.

Like, duh. LETS MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
