1. I wanted to give everybody a heads up on a change that I'm going to make for folks who want to use the For Sale section of the forum.

    The forum has been running strong for almost 11 years now and I (along with our awesome moderators) have tried to keep things running smooth and trouble free during that time. I'm thankful for everyone who has helped make this a great community to participate in.

    As you can imagine, there are some expenses that are involved in maintaining a site like this and I've tried my best to keep from passing that expense onto the user over the years. The forum will always be a free resource for people to communicate, learn and share.

    In order to offset some of the expenses that the site creates, I'm going to be changing the Gold Membership upgrade on the forum. Starting on April 1, 2017 the current "Gold Member" upgrade will be renamed "Pro Member" and this $20 annual upgrade will be required for posting items in the For Sale section. All members and visitors will still be able to view the For Sale section for free, but a Pro Membership upgrade of $20/year will be required for listing items in that section for sale. Current Gold Members will be converted to Pro Members and will have access to listing items for sale until their current upgrade expires.

    Thank you for your understanding and I will give further updates as the upgrade date approaches.

    Here is a sort of lazy thought. What if the quick reply was at the bottom of the page under all the comments? I think people would be encouraged to comment more and give a little more of their opinions. I don't want to sound like a lazy kid, but I really think if I could just comment on the same page as all of the comments, instead of loading the quick reply page, I would do it more often. Also, It would help when quoting. I would just scroll up and copy/paste instead of starting a new tab. referring to previous comments would be much easier.
    Maybe there are already ways around these few "problems" that I don't know about. After all, Am am quite new to this site :oops: :mrgreen:.
    Thank you for reading! Craig

    P.S. I dont know anything in site management. This is my top favorite site on the web (even including Facebook). What you are doing to maintain this site Steve is Awesome! don't think for a second that I am doubting you site. I am just throwing in an idea :D

    I could agree, I don't know how hard something like that is to implement though.

    It would take some programming, which I don't do.

    Most of the user interface with PHPBB3 forum software is locked in.

    Actually most boards are like that especially if they are vbullitin based. I was surprised the first time i joind a site that didnt. Or there is a quick reply at the bottom but you can only use it if you click QR on somebodies post which is annoying but its still right there.
