Forum Updates: 2019-03-03
This is a big update. Here goes!
Threaded Forum Layout
Back in the day, when we started BeerLeg.com (2010), we used a forum software that was much like the old-style threaded format. Sadly, we outgrew that software and eventually reached a point where we had to move on. After several iterations, trial and error, and lots of cussing, we've finally arrived here -- we now have threaded forums (again)!
One really cool thing about it is that we can apply threaded forums only to the categories where it truly makes sense. The following categories now use the threaded format:
- Surveying & Related
Feel free to play around with it and ask questions in the Support forum.
Q&A Layout Improvements
Many updates and improvements have been applied to the Ask A Surveyor forum to improve usability.
Recent Posts Filter
The Recent Posts page now includes a dropdown menu on the right-hand side. This allows you to filter the list based on your preference.
The overall forum system has been updated for better performance. The database has been greatly optimized and the queries to the database have been reduced.
Many bug fixes
And, as usual, many bugs were squashed. 🙂
Your ongoing, useful, helpful feedback is appreciated and we take it seriously. You can reply here or start a new thread in the Support forum.
I'm having a really hard time restraining myself from announcing the biggest new feature in the update, so in order to release a little steam, I'd just like to give you the following word to chew on:
What does that mean?

Excuse me while I whip this out!
"Do you suppose Kent will come back? I think lack of threading was one of his complaints."
If he does I hope the conversations of 0.000002' away from the "actual" corner don't start again. 😎
I look at Kent as a very intelligent and talented person. Those peoples have a tendency to be argumentative upon disagreement from others.

I believe that Kent is busy painting a 1 to 1 scale pastel landscape in the wastelands of Southwest Texas that can be seen from the space station.
Thank you Wendell for you constant mission to improve this place..............

Maybe Wendell if tweaking things again here n Monday.
I don't know if it is the threaded thing or not, but the formatting on some of the threads is all outta whack.
It is all white, all of the links and icons seem to have returns in them, and left justified making one message a page and a half long required a huge amount of scrolling to get through it. Something looks broken.
