• Please remember that Politics, Off Topic and Global Warming boards are for fairly serious discussion. I would like to see language used in those boards reflect that level of serious discussion. Sand Pit, Members. Improvements—go your hardest.

ok with Spread sheets you can copy the headers then individual rows and it formats or the whole lot... You can only have 20 pictures though in a post so you can see I had to delete some of the National Flags to make it work

Use Courier New as the font for tables—it is a monospaced font, like a typewriter, each letter takes up the same amount of space:

Courier New

m n

Verdana

Sound illegal :read
Who os going to bother about a little forum like this. I dream of that being the official flag here! So many children live here must have the Queen as Head of State. Probably the result of being such a small (25m population) western outpost in Asia but UK won’t be able to help us much anyway, just look at Singapore in WWII. Be better as States 51-57 of the US but I don’t want that either!

If you want to reply to multiple comments on a thread, you click on the +quote button on each reply you want to reply to. Then down in the message box click on Insert Quotes. That opens another window and you click on Quote Messages. The window disappears but all the quotes you selected are put in the message box for you.
As well as getting a much better logo and header I have asked the developer re pictures against each board.

Oh—the developer is creating a small pug in so that when someone registers using the new registration window a PM is sent to Admins. So a new member can be quickly vetted—no spam wanted! The member applying to join has to tick that he has read the rules—no argument down the track!
Like the new Logo..
For Global warming .. I'd suggest a picture of the Earth .. from space?
how do you use it?

I think the legality over images on the internet was up for serious changes when Adobe started giving its pacakges away very cheaply 3 or 4 years ago...

I don't know the details but apparently Adobe was going to be pushing its weight around for graphic design type business purposes.

None of this may apply, of course, but it might?!!?

@{whoever} is neat—see, click and are in the post someone wanted to make sure you saw.

Multiquote could be done with copy and paste etc, not as easy or quick.


But this is stuff done. What do we want done next year?

Better logo + text in header space. Tassie devil fine, typically Australian being marsupial (Two other continents have marsupials but only one species. A real photo of a real devil if we can get permission to use it.

Better color scheme

Place to post links to similar boards who in turn have a link to us. This is how we rise in Google etc rankings. Not OzPol. This has to be done on a HTML document, not to the board which changes,

When we have the second lot of improvements done I will set up a FaceBook page to link to here—could highlight a great thread or parts of the board like Global Warming. Post something once a month say, linking to here.

I do post links to here on Twitter—that gets up to 20 bots suddenly visiting here! Can’t hurt!
