New lease of life on the forums

Postby LVNLO » Sun Jun 12, 2016 4:22 pm

This is just a note to let you all know that we are looking to make a few changes to the forum over the next few months. I'm new to this and learning as I go so there is bound to be some teething issues. I ask if the forum isn't working great for you or your having problems please be patient, letting me know this issues and problems will also be appreciated.

I will be looking to updating the forums, working on getting more ppl visiting the forum, via promotion, looking into some competitions and just general bad assery build ups that everyone will want to read.

Another avenue I will be looking down is image hosting within the forum (no third party photo hosts) and also maybe an app of some description in the future.

If you have any question, suggestions or feedback please don't hesitate to let me know. I'll be doing my best to get the forum back to its former glory.


Cheers

Mike

Nice It has been good the last couple months people have got back into using it. An update to make things easier is going to make a huge difference as people just give up on it.

I personally think adding it on tapatalk would make a big difference in traffic as not everyone uses computers anymore.
Not sure how much work that is tho.

good job stepping up and giving it a crack any improvement will make a big difference.

I've only just taken it on, problem is where i live at the moment has no internet so will be a little while before i can jump into having a sort out, am hoping to get it back to its former glory as stated,

and on the spam issue, I'm currently receiving about 40 emails about about new accounts, at some points i can get 40 within an hour or two. thats why the measures have been put in place but ill see what i can do to fix this.

You Sir are a top man!!!

Getting rid of the spam and making photo uploading easier is probably the hardest task but also the thing that will make this place gain the usage it once had.

I'm no website expert but if there is anything we as a trucking community can do to help shout out.
