no alex i mean the idea itself i was asking if he did anything
On the subject of forum logistics, display etc.
We all see the time display in our chosen time zone from options. Is there any way that we could see each other's local time in a post ?
We're all so geographically spread out, that sometimes it's difficult to appreciate that the person you might be expecting to reply might have gone to bed, or lunch, or whatever.
Good idea Terry but it may not be possible due to two factors; some people are permanently "out to lunch"...LOL and I'm not so sure that a vBulletin board can do that. I know we can't do it over at McAfee.
Post count means nothing to me really. I mean you can post all you want and it not mean a single thing. It isnt worth having 50,000 posts if they are all spam and junk. To me that doesnt equal 1 post of useful and helpful material to someone.
I mean i could say how i have broken 6,000 posts on several forums and i am working as a Mod at almost everysite i visit cause i try to be helpful. But really that doesnt matter as much to me either.
Knowing that my geekiness can help someone out and that my attention to trying to help somone out is all that matters. Like the IE8 testing. I have put up as many places as i can find about how IE8 truly is and how it isnt for the average person. Several have commented on how my review was spot on and how they have already removed thanks to my advice. that is what matter knowing that i can help people.
Being a Mod or Admin is just bonus. I try not to abuse the powers given to me. I try to work with everyone and get the stuff done right. The way it really should be.
That is jsut as true as the quality over quantity remark i had made. If someone says Thank You to us should we not respond with a Your Welcome or No Problem post? Yes while only a couple of words it serves a very good purpose.Useless post isn't judged by the length, but by the meaning and the intentions...
Personally, I don't think that was a useless post; but maybe that's just me.
Hey we are a community to teach and learn from every member that posts. We each have our own opinion and views on things. That is what being a community is all about. To let people know our point of view while trying to understand their's at the same time.yeah i understand that was sort of out of line sorry peter true i'm sure that there are plenty of wordds just like pictures that are worth a thousand
