For a few hours, a new template will be on the site for testing. Please give your opinions and let me know if anything isn't working.

Again, you may need to hit CTRL+F5 a few times in a row (fast) to clear your browsers cache in order for the new template and layout to display correctly.

OK, this one I like.

There are three types of people. Sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. I will be a sheepdog.

"And He said to them, 'But now, let him who has a purse take it along, likewise also a bag, and let him who has no sword sell his robe and buy one.'" Luke 22:36

The only thing needed is a link to take us to the newest post in the thread, or did I miss it?

Looks good Alias thumbs up

Do not fire unless fired upon. But if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.

From Arctic Patriot: "Do not be the lone crossbowman holding his fire until he sees the whites of the armored knight's eyes behind his visor. Shoot that horse down as far away as you can. Then run, and do it again when you must."

"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be under the guise of fighting a foreign enemy" - James Madison

Age will not matter.
Strength of conviction and resolve
will carry us all through this.
Each of us will have a part to play
to the best of our ability. We will feed
off each others strengths and weakness.
Giving words of courage and showing it
as well. Encourage others, show strength
and plant the seeds of Liberty everyday.
We are ThreePercenters. - DEFENDER

Good idea, especially on the list pages.

I'm thinking having underlined links in the post text would help too.

And finding a better way to show sticky topics... They seem to blend to much with the rest as they don't have that icon next to them. Work in progress borther!

I'm pretty addicted to having recent messages on the sidebar already. smiling bouncing smiley

HEY! I found my food bowl!smiling bouncing smiley

I mean, yes, it is definitely a possibility, but I'd rather shoot 'n scoot to get some more.

My plan is to be the biggest pain in the ass possible.

One thing I noticed that may need attention is if it's a lot of new posts, they don't all show up in the sidebar.

It's only happened a couple of times to me, but the sidebar was showing no new messages, but scrolling down the topic list, I found a couple new posts.

The sidebar shows the last 10? most recent posts. If they are new, it shows new but if there are more than 10 new posts/topics and you read the most recent ones ... their will still be new older topics. They are just older than the last 10 so they don't get displayed in the sidebar.

I might bump it up to 15.. just trying not to slow the board down.

In the sign up, can you put up a notice to first post in the introduction forum, or even better, somehow make it so that a new member cannot post anywhere until they post there?

Thanks, I have noticed quite a few people lately drop in, put up one post with some questionable information, the sources of which they will not discuss at all. Just my thought that someone with one post, containing earth shattering information, and not a single word about their sources.

I like the new look and agree on the intro part. I lurked around a bit before posting.

Time is drawing near.
