RW Forum Update

Good news. The tech team behind RW has been busy working on several updates to the forum, which are going live as we type these very words. All the actual updates are outlined below.
  • A general facelift
  • Quoting function - click the quote button under a message to copy it, and click the quote button above the add-message box to paste it into your message
  • Editing function - edit your forum messages for 20 minutes after you post them, or until you post another message, whichever is sooner.
  • 'Ignore member' function (surely not needed on RW...
  • The threads-listing page now shows number of views, the name of the last poster, and a quick link to the last post for every thread
  • Among other smaller changes, there's now a 'status' field on your My Profile page ('I'm bored', 'I'm off to Egypt' etc), which also displays by your forum posts if people view your stats vertically; and there's also a new link to an external-bookmarking popup at the bottom of each thread, for easy addition of threads to Digg, Google Bookmarks etc


Here's a complete help guide to the forum, including the new changes. If anything doesn't work for you, do let us know on this thread.

Thanks

Dan

  • just updated my status!!!
  • see i did it!!

    .

    .

    <------- there (ish)

  • ...but only if you view stats vertically as Mr Dan said.

    jeez i should do some work!

    KK is gonna do her nut when she sees all this! THere will be posts all over the place!

  • Very good Nick!

  • I dindn't know you could view stats vertically anyway so thats new to me
  • dunno how you edit posts......

    well d1cking around on here sure beats reviewing inline forums and their use in research!

  • I can't find the edit function either.
  • All too confuddling for me at the mo!!  Bit of a shock to the system after lunch
  • hmmm something about a temporary edit message button...taht I cant see at the moment...im sure it will appear

    online not inline

  • No can see the ignore and quote bit maybe edit is one of the bits they haven't loaded yet

  • reckon youre right maddy...should be about .........^ there

  • Not sure about the ignore bit at the end of the day there are plenty of people I don't like on here but that doesn't mean I don't respect their views and knowledge of stuff - blocking contact would be more useful i.e. they can't email you through thesystem or setting up a genuine PM mail facititly - like Tripe Talk so you can have offline discussions if necessarywithout them getting your actual email address
  • And ignoring their posts on one thread could mean you miss the gist of things completely
  • We're about the turn the edit fuction on guys. It should be along shortly. image

  • LOL but KK -we will get to see how many people are lurkingon our naughtier threads - not that we have had one for ages we have been postively angelic recently
  • Is there any way of keeping the notification tab open all the time?  And is it always going to show that there's new posts even when there's not or is that just cos of the changeover?
  • Oh yes and who is most bored at any one time - I wonder who will be the first to go for the full page of being the last to post one night



    Actually no it will be Barley won't it image


  • Well, the lists of hot threads and things look better. The list of categories (FLM, Clubhouse etc) looks a bit clunky (large).

    Can the edit function be cut to 5 mins ?

    Can we change the colours yet ? I still hate them image
  • KK is gonna be like a dog with two tails now!!!!!!!!!

    Go to Sainsburys more often eh!?

    Yeah the ignore function will mean you can lose what is going on in the thread....mind you if you chose to ignore hoose...some threads would ahve been empty!

  • Anyway.... DAN RW adn co....well done looks better and for the most part the new functions are great!
  • I have a complaint ....

    I am unable to 'ignore' myself !

  • Alex you ignore yourself anyway............

    Uh the ignore function, don't press it. I just ignored KK for a minute(cos I love her) and then it says "do you want to un-ignore member?" button. Press that and i get KKs loving back but it throws me out of the forum.
