Please post your forum ideas here to avoid losing them in other threads!
Since this is a ground up build of another new MBN, this might be the time to add, edit or change the number of forums here.
One I would like to see is a forum just for shop builds, additions or remodels. It could include permanent shop equipment, electric service, water and waste systems, compressed air systems, lighting systems and other permanent or semi-permanent systems that make up the shop.

YES....

Working on categories and forum titles. UBB boards are tricky but I'm learning.


I know a lot about a lot of things BUT I still have a lot to learn.

I don't think we need a lot of forums...I would be happy with something like

General Discussion
Builds/Projects
Tech Resources/Skills

Most of the time the thread title tells you most of what we need to know, and I just read all the latest posts anyway.

It's not like we are as big as TBN or something and need to divide everything up super fine...?

It's not a percent, it's a flat rate...bigger donation, smaller %.

2.9% + $0.30 for every trans action. Personally I can live with that

in the end it's cheaper than setting up a bank account. with a bank account there would be monthly fees involved. this will serve the purpose. smile

I was just playing with this.

Tech Resources/Skills is currently set for photos, won't allow posts without uploaded photos (img links don't count)...and max photo size is 0.

Thanks for the input I will check it out when I get back to the desktop. The screen on my phone is too small

I made adjustments to the forum permissions. Still have to attach at least 1 pic to create a new topic. the reason is if the info is going to be posted here it should be stored here. I'm experiencing a tone of bad links trying to save a copy of the old site. that program has been running 3 days now and I'm about ready to give up on it.

I would have tried to do it here, BUT with our slow wireless ISP it probably wouldn't have worked. At times it gets so slow that pages won't change.

If it wasn't for your dedication in trying to get the old site... I probably wouldn't have done this. Thanks for YOUR inspiration..

I like how simple it is now but I can see where, in the future, it could get very confusing or frustrating without a good search function

Tom it's not quite that bad only for like a dollar donation. It's the cheapest way to accept credit card payments and also the easiest way for multiple admins in different locations to have access to it. we get $19.12 out of a $20.00 donation. they get $0.30 + 2.9% per transaction. If sent as a friends and family transfer NOTHING is taken out.

I personally would like to keep the electronics category. While perhaps not very active on old site, wiring and circuits will continue to be a reality for any powered project, even to fuel shut off solinoids on diesels.

Beyond that I think we also need a broad "coffee corner" where general fat chewing is the norm. Boys will be boys....

Isn't that what the General Discussion section is?

I think keeping the electronics section is a good thing,there's so much change in that area that a forum section here could help someone..Doc is always good with that..I will sure try to help where I can

I went on the old site last night and printed off about 30 more old threads. I'll get them posted eventually. I have to edit the pdf files some to make them small enough to load.

I might add a couple more section also.

Do you think electrical should be a stand alone section or leave it under tech resources?

I got all of the topics uploaded to new forums that I downloaded from the old site. It there are any others that anyone wants let me know.

The old site was like no other I have seen on the web. I hope this one develops the same way.
