Sometimes you got to look at the world around you and not be so focused on the bottom line. It just opens up a can of snakes.

The purple people eaters think it's a good idea. Admin you sure you wanted a more focused market niche to help butter your marketing muffins. There wasn't much thought in the big picture.

Admin,

Can you resize the users’s profile picture (limit the cell size) so that it does not overlap the comment section?

Thanks!

There are guidelines provided for sizing the image. People just need to follow the guidelines and their images will work great.

Admin to eliminate the cluster of duplicate post for team needs why dont you have 4 hierachal tabs built in the application one by topic for age groups and gender friendly and one by teams. Is this software limited in space? Otherwise we get the same information posted on both tabs. It might help keep things more organized and clean.

Or maybe you could just post less. That would be the most helpful.

Always open to suggestions, but you greatly over estimate the software and resources at my disposal. This site is not my job, more like a hobby offering a free resource to its members. But, if anyone out there is a java programmer with phpbb3 experience that wants to put in a lot of time in exchange for constant harrasment, Ive got a position available.

If I were admin I would ban medicine man for being insane and a danger to the forum welfare

Talk about adding nothing of value.

On another note. If there was a rating system where you could build reputation that would help as well as I suspect right now medicine man would have a negative rating as most every post would get multiple thumbs down.

Get a maintenance agreement on the software it probably needs a new release and get technical help to access and correct the situation. It might be worth it to you. Theres enough marketing dollars pumping in to the coffers to invest in support in Indonesia.

Just sayin.

I'm not sure software maintenance agreement means what you think it does.  No maintenance agreements include customization of modules or site design. I'm sure the software is updated, but that's not going to help with coding on the site. Coders usually cost $125hr and modules can easily to 8-20 hours to build.   I think you are off on there being coffers filled with ad revenue. This isn't a national site, and marketing usually requires more than one niche in one city to make any revenue.  Each click probably gets around a dollar and you are lucky to get one click per for 1,000 visitors.  How many visitors does the site get a day?  I'd think 2 or 3 thousand tops and how many click an add, who knows?

I'm not sure anything needs fixed, it looks fine to me. Want to see broke look at South Texas or most other regional forums. Maybe you can invest in this site, Im sure a small staff of full time developers and a seasoned team lead can realize your perfect forum dreams. Where is Richard Hendrix? We need three comma guy!

Post by frauschlager on 17/05/18, 11:13 am

Not knowing the software limitations, is there a way to create two columns, side-by-side on the page, 1 for Boys and 1 for Girls? Two columns instead of one in the middle might truncate some of the headlines, but I think we would all adjust. This would reduce the need for half(ish) of the community to scroll down just to get to the topics focused on them/their boys. Having them side-by-side also minimizes some of the "pecking order" stuff of who was here first (not that it matters). Functionality wise, it would improve the experience on a laptop, though not sure how that would work in mobile.

Regardless, keep up the effort. I think some of these things will sort themselves out over time.

I see the volume of traffic especially now combined  if the database was  built with future growth hiearchal tabs and leave space for additional age groups in the future I think it's a well worth investment one time. When I see all the marketing ads it's not going take long to recoup the one time costs to update w little pain.

I want you to earn your gold star award.
