So yeah, post comments and bugs or criticism in here. I know change can be difficult but in this situation we really had no choice but to ditch the old board.

Please go easy on us!

One of the things I am noticing is the signatures seem to sit too high in the posts? They should be more towards the bottom I think.

HondaTwinCam
07-07-2005, 12:17 AM
Yeah, and maybe be smaller text. One thing I just noticed, did everyone join in April 2001? So far all new posts show that in the user area.

jayson
07-07-2005, 12:20 AM
Yeah, because thats when hybrids.jp imported all the users over from the honda-perf.org board.

Ever since then we really never registered new users...

Oh and quick reply rocks my socks!

Anyway we can get the colors of the old Hybrid board? I'm sooo used to seeing black and orange. Other than that, I'm used to V-boards from other sites, no biggie.

You know deep down inside you were always hoping for HH.jp to turn into that. And now that your wish has been granted, you're like a kid let loose in a candy store :D


how do i turn off the read receipt on the pms?

If it works the same as the nsx boards (same format entirely thus far from what I can see), when you click SEND on the message, a window will pop up asking you if you want a read receipt. Hit CANCEL and the message will still go through but you won't get a read receipt for it. If you hit OK, then you will have a read receipt for the PM you sent.

it doesn't seem to save my usrname & pass on ebay either...
but if i jump over to yahoo browser (IE w/ a yahoo skin) at home it remembers me.
few other sites are the same way...i think it has somehting to do with the better security on FF...although some pages won't even display correctly in FF...which is sorta lame...and acrobat's interaction w/ FF is flat out horrid! besides the fact that it takes about 2 mins to launch acrobat when opening, normally it locks the whole window if i try to close a tab that has a pdf open in it...then i have to go to the task manager and end task on the acrobat.exe process that's running in the background...
i've gotten to the point where i just open all pdf links in a new window so i don't have as much trouble...

That's funny that I experience the same thing with Acrobat. It is really slow when reading pdf files. On the other hand, when I log in to ebay my username stays. I'm sure you've read about it, but I also tweaked the FF settings to "compliment" my slow computer. Of course, this is slowed down by all the extensions I have installed. :confused:

The "address book" of the old software is referred to as the "buddy list" in this software. You can click on Quick Links on the navbar and choose "Open Buddy List". A new window will pop up and you can then select which buddies to PM. I'm looking now to see if anyone has added the buddy list to the new PM interface itself because you're right, the way the other software did that was more elegant.

Chris,

Do you not see a JavaScript pop-up alert when you receive new PMs? I also miss the little "new message" icon and am sure this software can be tweaked to add a similar feature. Ditto on the number of new messages per board. The Hybrids.jp to do list grows...

Are you thinking of going the cafepress.com route? The previous shirts/hoodies/etc. we've had were all of much better quality then the stuff you get from cafepress.com.

I'm down the idea of some fresh Hybrids.jp gear. That valvecover image on the page you saw when the board was done was created just for stickers and stuff.

I think hybrids.jp across the left breast with that valve cover on the back would look siiiiiiiiiiiiiiick. Same thing for the hoodies, or put that valve cover on the front. PM me if you want to chat some more about it. I'm willing to do the grunt work to get these going and ship them out and all...

...all proceeds would be directed back towards s.k. for hybrids.jp server space and what not.

To everyone that does not want to see smilies and/or avatars (RyanR, smichael, agent_nine, etc.) you can disable these in your User CP (http://hybrids.jp/forum/usercp.php?) under Edit Options (http://hybrids.jp/forum/profile.php?do=editoptions).

The checkbox to disable avatars was under Thread Display Options/Visible Post Elements and I just added the abililty to Disable Smilies under the same section.

Originally when the new look was done, there was the option to get a read receipt on PM's that you send, by either clicking on OK or CANCEL when that small window showed up when you pressed SEND. Now there is no option, that I can't at least find, that will give me a read receipt. Or is there an option for it and I'm just not seeing it?

Is there a way that you can add some sort of check box at the bottom underneath the message area to allow a read receipt or not?

Also, I don't like it when you receive a PM and it asks you if you want to reply to a Read Receipt, acknowledging it. I liked it the way it was before.... just sends the Sender a confirmation as soon as the Receiver reads the message (and the receiver does not get any pop ups or any confirmations for it).

Just another $.02 being thrown into the pot :)

one quick avatar q...how the heck do you guys get the size down below 20k bytes? how are you saving your images to do that?

and another q....the changes made to my sig (i.e. bold, italic, size, color, etc) wont stay saved/show up even though i keep trying to see it again in preview. also, another little things is that the selection you make for font, font size, and color doesnt show up and stay in the pull down menu once it is selected. does any of this have to do w/ the fact that im using safari as my browser? OR maybe im just an idiot and have no idea what im doing. you tell me :D

I've bumped Search Index Minimum Word Length down to 3. You can also use wildcards for searches, which may help for some of those 2-letter words. If we really need to, I may bump it down to 2 letters later.
