so far I’ve noticed; the like button is in an awkward place but having the dislike is great
is it possible to make the smileys a tad bigger

Maybe itís because Iím using IOS but when I post a reply the screen takes me to the main Caps hockey page instead of the page I just posted on

should pin this maybe,

I think the like button is good where it is myself. I've already been planning to change all the smileys and making them much bigger. It'll take some time though.

weíve got plenty of time,

Ok, the button location may be fine, just gotta remember where it is, but the way itís applied looks more like you are liking/disliking the member rather than the post

Is it possible to limit the likes/dislikes to one per post?
I mean for to be able to only give 1 like/dislike per post, but not limited to how many posts that you like/dislike.  (Which was a bit of an issue on the other boards, as you know.)


Does that make sense?


To clarify.... If I really like a post, I should still only be allowed to give it 1 like.  If I like it a lot, I will comment on it.
Similarly with the dislike, which can easily be abused, should be limited to 1 per post.


I ask this constructively, so that these buttons will not get abused.


Regarding this (the like/dislike buttons), will we get to see the who's?  Who is giving us the likes/dislikes?
Do you/the Mods get to see them?  So you can see if somebody is actively targetting someone?




Awesome job, so far!  8)

Is that fixed for you?  It is an individual user setting that you can change, but I "think" I made it the default for the two forums 2-3 days ago.  It worked for me and I believe DC said his was good too after I made the chance.

To change it Go to "Profile", "Account Settings", "Look and Layout" and you can check or uncheck the box that says "Return to topics after posting by default."

Let me know if this already changed for you a couple days ago.

Today I changed it so you can only give a user one like/dislike every 15 minutes. No limits beyond that.  I will try to write some code to display a timer if you attempt to click it again too early, but that's not a priority just yet.


Regarding this (the like/dislike buttons), will we get to see the who's?  Who is giving us the likes/dislikes?
Do you/the Mods get to see them?  So you can see if somebody is actively targeting someone?

I tried to  find a way to do this.  I have not seen any way to do this, and no the moderators and admins can not see this.  These are not even logged.  I will put this on the far back burner and maybe one day try to write some code to display who liked/disliked each post.

Used to be on the standard boards, so it must be out there somewhere.
As an expert (NOT) could a post/paste not work?

I have added that. You should see the link clearly on the right side of each post.  Let's all try to be tolerant and not misuse this feature.

I'm tired of being a "Senior Member."
I don't see a way for me to change that title.
I'd like to be a "BitchBoy" or as a fallback title a "Senior Dismemberer."
I am certainly not a hockey diety........
Help me out here.... ;D

Just go to your profile/forum profile and you can add a custom title (like I did with Chairnan Of The Hockey Board).


However the Senior Member\Hockey Diety are hard coded based on the number posts that youíve made, Im not sure what thersholds are.

What is the significance to the colored squares in the member title area?  I grasp the more squares refer to the number of posts and the subsequent "sub title" (oh to be a deity some day...)
What is the significance of the color of the squares?  DC is Blue, AJ is red, Maaco is yellow, etc....

Regular member groups are Yellow.  Global Moderators are Blue, Board Moderators are Green, and Admins are Red. You're correct the number of squares is related to the numbers of posts which determines the member group as below.

Member Group      # of Squares   # Posts => than

Might I ask you to "pin" the "other games around the league"  thread? 
No big deal or anything,  just that most Caps fans are hockey fans first and like to see and talk about other teams and players too.  That thread covers a multitude of things.  :)

Question:  After I post, there is a number that comes up just below the post, at the bottom right, just after the "Report" option and the angled Rubik's cube thingammy.  What is that?  I don't see it on anyone else's posts.  It doesn't change, so it's not a post count.


Also - You know I'm going to start about the emoticons soon, right? ;D
