I'm listed as having a 'WARNING' - however I find no information about this. What is the deal? Yes I recall having a warning but what is the reference? Three strikes and I'm out or what?

When will avatars be enabled.

No worries. I probably was testing with that functionality. It's because a post of you was reported as being off topic I think.

You mean this link? search.php?search_id=newposts

If you think it's a good idea to have it, we can add it to the front page again.

Thanks for the updates / info etc. Today I had this message again when first going to my usual forum link:

viewforum.php?f=65
"Information
You are not authorised to read this forum."

However clicking the same URL again I saw what was there - no problems - which is usually my experience.

And.... the avatar is online - thanks - I see other avatars also. :D

You have 48 hours now to edit a post (before only 2 hours). After that edits are not possible anymore. If you would like a particular change now anyway, just let us know via webmaster@f-16.net.

Avatars are good.

And I like this link now - shows the ACTIVE TOPICS below the F-35 sub sections.

Yes, so far only 4 people use it. Who will be number 5? Add your avatar now. :P

Yes, we activated the option 'Active topics'. So you don't have to go dive in each of the subforums anymore to keep up with everything.

There's even the option to see all active topics forum wide.

No longer get updates to topics, I've either posted in or subscribe to. Clicking "bookmark topic" or "subscribe topic" doesn't make a difference. :bang: Looked at the User Control panel can't find anything amiss (but don't see what email address answers are being sent to either).
New forum rejects my old icon as well :cry:

Only 'Subscribe' will notify you of updates via email. You can always manage your subscriptions.

You can also manage your bookmarks via the user control panel.

I will send you a PM with regard to your email address and avatar.

Thanks for the feedback as this really helps us to improve the forum!

Anyone else who either does or does not successfully receive emails for forum topics he's subscribed to?

Hi guys, can I please suggest two improvements:

print all pages: can you introduce a header with the full web address at the top and when printing that indicates the topic number and title as default name for printing. at the moment I only get www. f-16.net.

allow the use of right and left arrow keyboard keys when seeing individual photos in the gallery section, instead of constantly clicking the next and previous arrows. Too much clicking and my finger is going to fall out.
regards and thank you for the great job done.

Done - only works when viewing individual photos though. This is very convenient actually, thanks for the suggestion :-)

This makes sense but we don't want to put too much development time in a feature that potentially kills a few trees. We'll put it on our list but might take a while.

Any has any other suggestions to further improve this website or this forum?
