Being something of a neophyte at this whole business, I wanted to know if anyone here had any ideas and/or comments as regards the look, makeup, structure, etc. of the forum.

It is only a couple days old at the moment, so it is very much a work in progress.

And thoughts, ideas or contributions to the forum as a whole would be greatly appreciated. If anyone out there is skilled in photo manipulation, a slightly fancier logo would be in order, perhaps some new button images, anything you all can come up with, we can at least try and make it happen.

I would like that this remain a collective work instead of just the brainchild of two people.

Well, hoestly, though i like the setup of the forum, it may be a little uninviting. (this of course shouldnt matter to people who truly wish to help out), but we may should allow for users to choose their own skins as well. Ill see how you can set that up.

Generally young forums such as this one should avoid e-mail activation for 2 reasons I've encountered: people don't want to put too much effort into joining such a small forum, and the spam bots that justify the activation generally bypass such things anyway.

Thanks for the comment. I will wait to confer with the other admin, and we will decide.

Cheers and welcome,

Yeah, that does sound like a good idea. Although we may end up culling some of the people later right now we need members if we're going to get anywhere.

Is there not an option to have alerts for new messages? I just noticed that I had some without any warning.

It should send a small pop up window . Strange if your not getting that, check your profile, i guess.

You have to check the option in your profile that says "always attach my signature" or somesuch nonsense.
