Forum is now ad-free of those google ads.

If anyone can still see the ads, clear the cookies relating to this forum, if you still see them let me know.

Avators

These need to be kept at a maximum width of 180pixels, maximum height of 300pixels, to keep the appearance of the forum consistant, hence; prevent making everyone's message compressed.

Changing Usernames

If anyone wants to change their username (i.e. would like to change a letter to caps, or just wants a totally different username) can do so by sending a private message to any of the Administators.

Video Clips

You can now embed your football videos into your posts using the following code:

Code:
[size=24]TITLE[/size]
[video]URL LINK[/video]


You can set the size as you wish (i.e. it doesn't have to be 24, that's just for the example)

Example:

The following title and url link...


Code:
[size=24]Flight of the Conchords - Business Time[/size]
[video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGOohBytKTU[/video]



...will look like...

Flight of the Conchords - Business Time

Footer

The links and text in the footer of the forum which are for search engine purposes are no longer visible when you are logged into the forum, as there is no need for these links other than for search engines, and search engines are prevented from logging into the forum.

The Merge link is also only visible to admins and mods now, as no-one else had the access the use this feature anyway.

So basically it should be less clustered at the bottom of the forum when you are logged in.

Forum Terms and Conditions

Previously the link to the T&C's was only on the index page.

A lot of new members might actually enter the forum on the main page (due to the way we instruct google to direct visitors to the main page) and never have seen the index page, so we've moved the link to the T&C's to the bottom of all the non-thread pages.

If anyone wants to add or remove a particular T or C, post it here and we'll guage the opinion's of the membership for any proposal. Obviously, we have to cover our ass when it comes to libellous material though.

Italian Serie A Football FanCast


Banner added to the bottom of the forum.



They will mention the forum from time to time and will link back to us aswel.

A new podcast recording is added to their website every Wednesday evening, on Champions League weeks they add a new podcast on Thursday (instead of Wednesday).
They interview distinguished journalists, so it's a good feature for the forum.

Thanks to delpiero for refering the forum to the FanCast website.

Update to Forum Terms and Conditions

We have updated the T&C's so we ask every member to read them again. The updates are marked in red.

We haven't changed the moderating level so there will be nothing to worry about, it is only from various legal examples that forum administrators can no longer rely on the good sense of 99.999% of the membership and have to spell things out a bit more clearly.

In otherwords, we're covering ourselves.

Accessing the forum on a mobile phone

Now if you access the forum via a mobile that falls into one of these groups:

(up-browser)|(blackberry)|(windows ce)|symbian|palm|nokia

you will get a stripped down template that is much more usable.

There is a toggle switch to change from mobile view to full view.

As for Safari on an iPhone, go to your Safari settings and change the 'Accept Cookies' option to 'always'.

Also the forum is more friendly now for touch screen.

Some more tweeks will be made.

Link Blocked

New forum members have their posted links blocked from showing, this is to deter spammers.



Report Post button

There is now a button in the top-right corner of each post, the button with the big red R, so members can report posts. When you submit a report it will be reviewed by the first moderator or administrator online.

You can choose the following options from a dropdown list;
  1. Delete my post
  2. Link to adult/offensive website
  3. Threatening/Abusive behaviour
  4. Grooming
  5. Trolling
  6. Spamming
  7. Extremist views beyond 'banter'
  8. Details entered in report

As you can see, you can request for your own post to be deleted, however this option is not to be used on a whim and grammar/spelling will not be fixed. You can edit or delete your own post within 60 minutes of posting it anyway.
