NEW FORUM
« on: February 16, 2012, 11:13:24 PM »
First Up is the new Forum.
This is a huge upgrade.  The primary goal was to automate things eliminating our dependency on Administrators to post your requests making for a smoother and more satisfying user experience.

Some of the great new features:

AUTOMATED CALENDAR: Now anyone can post a trip on our calendar... and it is available immediately for everyone to see.  Takes just seconds.
Been discussing a trip in the forums and just decided what your dates will be ?  Click the LINK TO CALENDAR button at the bottom of your post to add it to the Calendar right NOW.  (More here: http://ridersonline.org/2012/smf/index.php?topic=13.0 )

ATTACHMENTS:  Now you can attach picture files directly to your post.  No need to host them elsewhere and link the pictures.  Just attach them here and NOW for everyone to share.

SIMPLE ENHANCED EDITOR:  No more trying to figure out BBC code.  Our new editor allows you to edit text just like Microsoft Word and every other program you already know.  You don't need to be a programmer to make fun posts. 

How about a Shadow...  
How about Glowing Text ?
How about scrolling text ?

Enhanced Security:  Will allow us to keep out the spammers without several layers of password protection.  Visitors won't have to login at all... but will be limited from our Member Bios and such.  Members will have one simple login for everything on the site.

KARMA:  You've seen it elsewhere...  and now we have Karma.  You can rate your fellow members posts good or bad.  It's anonymous...  but has controls in place to help the mods keep out abuses of the system.  Helps us all make sure we are posting things of value.

This is just a quick list but there is much more coming.  Enjoy !
