how do you get the polling option?

03-25-2001, 04:28 PM
I really don't have an opinion about the look of the BBS, or the options at our disposal, since I have very litle doubt in my mind that I am the most computer illiterate poster on this board or elsewhere.
My only concern is whether or not I can get in and discuss my favorite topic (ok, 2nd favorite, but I digress).
To that end, Kyle, I appreciate your efforts greatly.
But as long as I'm here, would I be correct in assuming that the chatroom (is that what it's called?) is incompatible with WebTV?

03-25-2001, 04:32 PM
Looks fine here....just wondering what kind of new features there are to play with?

03-25-2001, 04:48 PM
Kyle and the rest of the crew,

Looks good to me, but what do I know? I'm PC illiterate, but can point and click to stay alive, so to speak. Thanks for the hard work and dedication.

Nice to see we're back in business!

Super work Kyle... time to bring the new "toys" out! :)

03-25-2001, 04:53 PM

I'll look into the chat room and see if it is webTV compatible...

As for the poll... (I'll post all the other new features in a seperate topic later...)

ANYONE can now add a poll... just post a new topic and look for the link at the bottom to add your own poll...
this is one of my favorite new features :)


03-25-2001, 04:57 PM
Thanks Kyle,
To be honest, I'm not really all that concerned with it, since I am not only computer illiterate, but type about as fast as Pacfan comprehends real football discussion.

03-25-2001, 04:57 PM
OK who added the fifth option to the poll... real funny guys... I know it was one of the moderators/admins...

hmmm... :cool:


03-25-2001, 05:01 PM
Just got here today and so far so good....

Say, do I need a bigger monitor or is there a way I can get the whole bbs on my screen without having to side scroll back and forth???? Seems to be new - what gives

another of the pc illiterate (is there an all idiot team for that too? :D )

03-25-2001, 05:04 PM


Looks okay to me, 'cept for the Red And Yellow thing..... and the Chiefs thing....

Milkman!!... Not compatible with webtv.... hardly any chat is!

~~ What is that "attach file" thing below options?

03-25-2001, 05:08 PM
Thank you.

03-25-2001, 05:13 PM

I like the look of the new board...

Just wish I could post here more. Since I took this new job, I seem to have no life.


03-25-2001, 05:13 PM
Wis Chief - No, it is your monitor settings.

Go to <b>Start - Settings - Display - Settings</b>. Then change your screen area appropriately. Tinker with it until you find the area that allows the most information on the screen without being so small as to hurt your eyes.

I'm pretty sure it was either Luz or Russ that added the 5th option, Kyle. :)

03-25-2001, 05:43 PM

I've been around the world and then some but, I haven't heard the term "like Kyle does on ruby tuesday". What the hell does that mean? Just curious.

03-25-2001, 05:51 PM

I like the new look a lot, and the new polling option is great!! One thing I would like to see is the return of the author's post to the top of the page as well as post numbering.

Thanks again for the hard work all of you do so that we all have this place to express our views and opinions...

03-25-2001, 07:02 PM
Testes... testes... one, two... three?!

03-25-2001, 07:07 PM
This new one rocks!!!!

way to go!

03-25-2001, 07:09 PM
Looks good to me, thanks for the hard work Kyle.

03-25-2001, 07:09 PM
I miss the initial post at the top of the thread - it is annoying to have to go back to the beginning.

Other than that, I like it. Good job.

03-25-2001, 07:14 PM

How's it going?


03-25-2001, 07:26 PM
Yeah ... I agree ... I need to get the first post (topic) back at the top of the page...

It is kind of a difficult hack ... so I'm putting it off until last... but I agree it has to be done...

It annoys the heck out of me too...


03-25-2001, 07:32 PM
Great look, once the first thread is at the top again I cannot see what you would be able to do to make it better.

Thanks Kyle

03-25-2001, 07:34 PM
By the way what does the Buddy list do? Not a very strong name, I think of Packfan when I see it.

By the way what happened to the Post Number so that it can be easily referenced?

03-25-2001, 07:52 PM
I think you did a great job with this! Congrats and a pat on the back Kyle.
Kathy.....soon to be happy camper when I can figure some of this out.:D

03-25-2001, 07:57 PM
The post numbers will be back as soon as I can get to it... the buddy list (I agree with you on the name) is for "private messaging" so if you don't want to send an email to someone...you can send a private message and they can go to their profile and check it...


I'll post more on the new features in a sec...

03-25-2001, 08:23 PM
Very nice Kyle. I can't wait to play around with the new features. Keep up the good work.

(In best Beavis and Butthead voice): This is, like, cool and stuff.

Very nice work, Kyle. Hopefully I'll be able to post some before:
a.) I get a new job;
2.) my current company installs monitoring software;
d.) my home computer blows up.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see. :D

Now, let's see if I can get a picture to work someday ...

Love the new look! Was there a problem this afternoon? Had problems logging on.

03-26-2001, 07:08 PM
this is great. Aside from the initial post at the top and the post #'s, I can't think of anything that you could add to this. Great job, and thanks for putting up such a great place for all of us to come and hang out.

03-26-2001, 07:20 PM
I like how in our profiles it averages out how many times we post a day. This is cool.

04-06-2001, 09:37 AM

I looked in my profile and didn't see that option...what am I missing???

Love the new board and it's bells and whistles.

fearlessly asking for directions...

Looks great.

The only thing I do not like is not having the original post at the top of each page.

04-06-2001, 11:40 AM
Extreme, click on profile below a response you've posted. You'll see Total Posts. Next to that, there is your average PPD in parenthesis.

Ditto, Iron chefs response.

Thanks KPhobia. (1.67/day) Man, I need to step it up a bit...that's nearly 2 years to get to 1000!!

can't believe I actually did the math for that...
