    Keeper of the hens

    There's an easy way of quoting someone... Make sure you are using Html and simply put your quoted text within blockquote tags:

    eg:

    <blockquote>this is quoted text</blockquote>

    gives

    this is quoted text


    Don't forget, <blockquote> starts the quote and </blockquote> ends it.

    will we ever get a way of making a direct contact with another member ie PM's or is whisper the only way of communicating. we cant actually leave a message for anyone..except by way of a whisper in a thread that they may or may not see ! so if i wanted to send you a message unless you are in the tread where a whisper has been left we cant ?

    Does that make sense ?

    I suspect your window is too thin so the google map is falling off the bottom! I can either make the google map smaller or you could resize your window wider... :)

    I tried making the google map get bigger and smaller as your window does but it doesn't want to play that way.

    I don't think I'd want to be PM'd by someone - I like to find a whisper in a thread that's for me, and the fact that the moderators can read them means they still have to abide by the rules of decency!! If people want personal messages they will surely provide their emu address?

    Keeper of the hens

    The Vanilla forum is different from other forums - it is solely focussed on the thing that matters most - the discussions between friends.

    Hence the lack of Private Messages, mailboxes, even smilies aren't enabled in the default install.

    I'm not going to add PM's for the simple reason as already said, if you want that sort of thing it's much better to use email or MSN - that way you are using dedicated software which will be better suited and also not putting any extra load on hencam's resources.

    I think we all agreed on the addition of smilies because they are a bit of fun (most of the time!)

    I'm going to leave things as they are for a few days to let everyone get used to the changes, then we can try and agree on what needs changing and improving... It's been quite a bit of work so I want to make sure any changes are actually for the better.

    The New Post link has never really worked, so I think that will be going (it's not really needed anymore as the new post boxes I added more than make up for it I think).

    The whispers will probably become more obvious (if it's an easy change!)

    As always, keep those suggestions coming I'm sure we'll get everything sorted out eventually!

    Thank you Wazza! I hope the stuff we can fix outweighs the bits and pieces that we can't do anything about (lack of PM's etc).

    You'll notice now there is a 'quote' feature - yay! Whispers should be more obvious too.

    We really do appreciate all of your hard work. I use the new message thing so that I don't have to keep scrolling, then just scroll at the end to see the ones it missed. As I have the forum in a small box I'd have to do LOADS of scrolling if it goes, but I'll leave it to you and the general census. I do think yours and Reds posts should be highlighted again - they get lost at the moment.

    Is there anyway of seeing where a fellow hencammer is loitering on the forum, what thread they are in... we can all see when Ace or Vicki or RED or neil or Trev is on line it tells us on the top left.... but if we want to say HI, can they be traced to a thread so you can greet them ?

    Beware though, Wazza - many of the threads do not ever show up in New Posts. So, a lot of us go to New Posts first and then, after looking at those, go to Discussions to read the rest. As an example *The Girls* doesn't even show up in New Posts!

    You'd better not let your employers find out how unobservant you were!
