This by far is the best WWII site i've been on. Others have little or no activity.
I agree with you there....any topic of any part of the war you can think of, you can almost bet it's been discussed in length here!!
And if it hasn't just post a thread and it probably will be.
In some forums, when a member posts a thread or reply, a prompt asks: "would you like to receive an e-mail when someone replies to this post? yes? no?" Is this an idea for this forum? If a post you made does not appear in the "recent posts" list, an e-mail might save some clicking to discover if anyone has answered it. Just an idea.
That does exist already mate under your user cp - settings and options - messaging and notification.
There is a drop down box there as to whether you wish to get email replies. and is also an option to also subscribe to any thread you post in, and everytime you go to your cp you can see all the new posts that you have subscribed to.
Thanks Robert, I will check that out.
Question: If someone wants to see page 16 of a 30 page thread, how to access p16 other than going to last page and clicking back a dozen times?
I don´t know if you can go to page 16 by the site´s systems alone but I guess you can simply change the internet address for instance this page is "../page-5" and you could change it to ".../page-16".
The problem with this forum is that far too few people activate email notifications.
This option would go a long way towards returning past members, who gave up on ww2f.com after our latest malware attack.
Far too many of our best posters, experts are long gone.
Charming..Fred....Some stayed...I think we should have a forum test to prove my statement is true...
Only one question needed...
Ok...everyone...When did ww2 start?
This option could also go a long way towards really pissing off people who've set their notifications to exactly what they wanted.
There is no magic bullet.
Forums wax & wane. In 2007 WW2T was a place of tumbleweed while this place was huge by comparison.
Post on, stay as chipper as Urqh, be as Civil/interesting/argumentaive as the circumstances dictate, poke the archive (cracking archive here) and people roll up.
We all know WW2F took a hit, but it's all better now. Banging on about how you think a place is quiet is a strong form of social poison.
S'like steering an oil tanker; slow & steady, and you can't force anyone to play by artificial means.
What is this WW2 of which you speak? It sounds quite interesting.
Email notifications are not automatic, I'm not sure I'd be the one to make that so. I think the biggest problem we have here was the massive and repeated malware infections we had. Thanks be they are gone now.
Oil tanker is an apt comparison. I'm trying to lurch this beast back into motion, but it's taking some effort!
I'm a new kid on the block so to speak, and although I spend much more time on ww2talk because my area of interest is mainly the British 78th Infantry Division, and there are others interested in the same unit, I find that I do spend some time on here daily trying to participate in the threads.
I have noticed recently that there are new members joining this forum and long may it continue
I'm no expert, but I'm still here Fred. ..Wonder if there is any way to see who is getting the most hits. Top 20...Car wreck or car designer...Urqh prolly holds the current belt , 'cause he's funny and friendly, can back it up with smart... Mr History, Mr. Von Poop[its], Mr.Price, KB, Marms, the super B's, TD, TOS, senior/junior Mr. T's, BD1, ETC....it goes on [there are way more important dudes not mentioned]. Why would you alienate yourself with that statement.
I am just saying that people put up heartfelt requests for information, and years later, someone's research pulls up the answer.
We see that here all the time.
IMHO it would be nice to have the option to tell people that an answer has finally come for their area of interest.
... Alternatively, perhaps Otto could put out a single batch email to invite people back.
Curious as to who hasn't come back... Whom have not revisited?
Whom refuses to wear the RIBBON?
There's a ribbon?....I want a ribbon...
Lol, Urqh- cheque is in the mail...Actually, U writes all my stuff....Some artists are known by their first name, only a few are known by their first letter..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGaqI20WHyk
