great ideal Lefox ....
plus add to it my topics or my threads next to it also >
'search' 'my settings' 'my pics' 'my messages' 'my posts' 'my profile' 'my topics'



how about in your profiles under
Find all topics in which "person" has posted.
have a link for
find all topic thread "person" has started.

to help narrow down the topics search to just the topics that person started instead of trying to sort through the hundreds or thousands of thread the posted in to find a particular thread or hundreds the keywords search comes up with.

also others have asked for profile link added to members pics area.

liking it so far , great job !

Working on the profile link to members pics area. The submenu is sort of crowded. I've already played with the wording to keep is short and make everything fit. I'll see what I can do.

We are paginating the pictures on a user's profile page after 10 or 20 images. It won't be endless. This is still in the works.

Does that help? I'm not sure that I see the downside. Please don't delete pictures. [confused]

If you guys are afraid of the pictures on your profiles I'll make changes, but please don't delete images you've uploaded. It will break old threads and posts you've made using those images. Other users that search the threads or Google will land on threads with missing pictures. I know I've done this on other forums and it's no fun. Thanks.

I like it. Any chance of a place in our name to show where we are from without having to look in a profile. Always nice to just look at a post a see where the person you are talking with is from. Also a lot easier in the classifieds.

I like the location idea. Is anyone concerned about privacy related to location displaying on your profiles and posts?

oops............. too late
maybe you can make displaying those images optional in the future and I wont need to to any more deleting?

just make it a fill in the blank like most others do, if you don't want to share leave it blank or get creative

We're just going to add a link that says "Find all images uploaded by this user" to each person's profile page.

I'm still confused why anyone feels they need to delete picture from their profiles? Are you guys afraid of something?

We're also making modifications to the image upload that will require a description, tags and a slug to upload images. This will allow us to create a searchable database for the pictures. We can't make the image section searchable without these requirements. I hope everyone understands the value in this.

some things can be taken out of context are outdated incorrect and sometimes you just don't want it searchable on the open net

like the pictures of my son on my bike, I do not want those available to anybody who searches for a buell on google, I share with BUELLXB members not the entire internet
yes I know that once its on the net it will never come down yadda yadda yadda
there is still a difference between posting it once and having it searchable or visible every-time somebody clicks on my profile.

do those who post in buell porn want that picture to come up every time we look at the profile?
probably not, within a certain context it is ok, people know what they are getting into when the click on the thread but its not necessarily expected when they click on a profile or a shortcut to a persons images.

Email notification for PMs and Posts? I've searched, maybe I'm dumb, but I don't see anywhere to add that. I've always thought this was a rudimentary forum compared to my others but I've actually come to appreciate it's simplicity.

Name plates/photo bars for signatures at the bottom of posts as well as avatars would be nice.

I would like a way to delete multiple PM's, figure I am averaging 300-400 a month, I must spend 45-50 min. deleting them after each giveaway plus I try to maintain them throughout the month when they build up[smirk]

Member Location would be great but is also really easy for each to add into their profile

It would be cool if we could do mobile uploads like on Facebook as I am computer stupid and fried my computer and rely on my Ipad to correspond with everyone. All but 3 of the photos on my FB are mobile pics, it's just easier for me that way .

Yea it was a pain to begin with when uploading multiple photos one at a time now with three more steps per photo it sucks
At the risk if sounding like a petulant child I thick I have uploaded my last photo here, I'll be returning to picasa and hotlinking from now on.

I'm liking most of the new features , this forum is the best and just keeps getting better!
but i have a small rant, or maybe I'm going nuts sooner than I predicted!
the facebook like button at the top it said earlier today 224 people like this, now it says 223 people like this, What the F"#kin Hell. either you like Buells or you dont , why the F would you waste your time like then unlike, and for what reason. good bye and Good Riddance you F'n JACKA$$ have fun on your mopad!
there it is my rant.
Damn that was a waste of time for me and you.

I've actually thought about that each month when I'm sending you 4 PMs in a week. I gave up on deleting my PMs because it's too much of a hassle. You should just have everyone post in giveaway thread and skip the PMs, you could just run down the line and copy everyone's name that way.

We had to add steps to the photo upload so we could make the photo gallery searchable. You'll notice the new search bar at the top of the photo gallery. We need data fields to search. I made it optional at first but few used it. Who's too lazy to type a few words to describe their picture for the community's benefit?

I'll look into mass PM delete features.

We've left out signatures, avatars and other stuff to keep the load times down.

I'm doing the best with what time and money I have. Thanks for your patience everyone!

I kept sayin it because no one said anything about it. To me it's the most basic upgrade that's a part of every other forum. Other than that the site is good enough. Even without it the site is good enough. I just think thats a no brainer and should have been in from the get go.

i was searching for an old post of mine today, took me a long time to find it,not only because i could only go back so far (10 pages) on the my post link, but also becuase i found a few other threads that wasnt what i was looking for but somewhat interesting anyways.( I kept stoping & reading all the old good stuff here on BUELLXB.com) and it was an old old post couldnt think of my words in it and search came up with alot keep have to narrow it down, forgot to put my name inthe only post by space, my fault damn, but any ways..

Why is the link above for My Post , only show you 10 pages worth of your posts, but now i find out that the link for all topics i have posted in, on my profile page Shows ALL old posts, can we fix this where both show all?? or is this something I'm going to have to remember to do when looking for my old post.

I bet i am not the only one that would like to see this happen, or at least now they know how to find all your very old first posts..

I think we have reached the point where more just makes it worse, fix any broken/incomplete stuff and walk away....
