Greetings all.

I've done something of a restructure in the forum. Don't panic, I hope it will all be well.

First things first, I've removed the "Calgary Volvoclub Membership" privacy settings, so every forum is visible to everyone. Because there was no need for a "Calgary Volvoclub" specific section, I've merged the "Marketplace" sections and moved the "General Volvogroup Discussion" section to the general section.

Next I have created a few new sections. There is one specifically for tech threads, one specifically for fabrication threads, and one specifically for build threads. Please post only if you've got something worthwhile to post - this section is to be reserved for worthwhile, focused tech threads as a reference for the future. I have moved several threads into these sections to get us rolling, and in a couple of cases I have merged a few smaller threads into one bigger one in the new section.

Finally, I pruned about a million new and inactive users. I accidentally activated some of the users and a few of them got the chance to post for a second or two, hopefully there will be no more spam. If so, I will deal with it.

Hopefully all of your threads are intact, but they might not be where you're expecting to find them. HTML links will no longer work in some cases, but your in-forum links should (like, your subscribed threads or your history). Any problems, you can blame me.

Oh, and one last thing: if you have any threads you'd like moved into the new sections, merged together, deleted, locked, or whatever... Please shoot me a PM.

Matt

I concur, a bit of change freshens things up and the new forums should work really well.

Glad you approve. There might be more to come, we'll see. I'm hoping we can gather up some good reference material in the tech section.

Good to see that you didn't delete me. Yes, troubleman is still alive :P

Just been really busy last few years, handling two full time jobs and lots of moving around the world.

Reading the board to see who else is still around. :)

A suggestion- I don't know how hard this is, knowing no PHP and very little HTML...but when you open multiple threads- each in a new tab, could we set it up to use the thread's title to title the tab, rather than the tabs all reading Calgary Volvo club? Just a question more than anything....

Haha, yeah that would be in the root of the program which is vastly out of date. All I managed to figure out how to do was push forums around.

Does anyone have access to the gallery, or the ability to fix access to the gallery?
