Poll time...appearance of the AFV forum.
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

actually I'm fine with whatever colors the group wants, but I really like the new features, private messaging, polls, etc., I think everyone will be fine with it once they get over the learning curve.

I'm one of the three who voted "Other" - because I thought a color change to perhaps "green" would fit in under this poll option...

I was in the USAF - and this blue looks quite nice for that. Perhaps OD would look great for AFV's...

Post subject: Re: Poll time...appearance of the AFV forum.

It's like trading an old Toyota for a new Lexus. The old place was comfortable and did the job, but it was pretty basic transportation. This new place is chock full of bells and whistles, and does take a while to get used to, but overall is a way nicer ride. I definitely like it here.

It looks like most people have figured it out, already, and those who have had difficulties have found the help and support they needed to get up and running.

Change can be good, sometimes. I think this was a good change.

Hi Doug,

I really miss the ease and simplicity of the old site. I would have preferred to keep it the way it was and have some sign in policy, or something. As far as I'm concened, this is all way too complicated and busy; I don't need no smiley faces and marque stuff messing up my mind. Frankly, if you're going to stay here, using this same general format, color really isn't an issue to me.

So, I don't suspect I'll be around much. Missing-lynx and others have a much simpler and more logical interface.

Adios amigos,

Mike

I don't care much for the blue scheme. I'd prefer something a little more "AFV-ey". Khaki or Olive Drab maybe.

This forum is actually very similar to all the "other" forums I belong to. I enjoyed the "old" format, but actually it was the only forum formatted that way, so this one is actually more familiar to me and find this one to be a little better with options etc etc.

Keep up the good work Doug.

Thanks, LavTech, I needed that.

I'd hasten to point out, though, that the ultimate success or demise of this DG depends on it's members. I'm just the guy who, when we were flying in a storm of spam, found us someplace to land safely. Getting safely airborne again isn't up to me.

Sorry, getting my metaphors all geeked up again...

...and it ain't my computer technical competence at work here...that's the admins at C-C. I just did a lot of sucking up and butt kissing....to each according to his ability, I believe the saying goes.

I dont care so much about the colors - but I would prefer the old thread-view from the old board + the ability to use HTML in postings (so I can constrain picture sizes).

Neil


Neil, I don't know how computer literate you are but in amongst the buttons on the post form is one: <? that is used apparently to insert PHP code. PHP is just a server side scripting language used to generate HTML output and so presumably you can embed HTML in your posts using this instead. I haven't got the time to play around with it right now but I'll have a look later.

Doug, I think the colours are a little too Air Forcish, but I can live with it.

Cheers,
Michael

I have it on good authority that admins are looking at the "green and mud-mover" brown combo. Sumthin' earthy.

Post subject: Re: Poll time...appearance of the AFV forum.

Here's my two cents worth, (again). This site is fine. We should all be grateful that we have it. Any changes you make that improve its looks and/or ease of operation, I whole heartedly approve of. I'm sure some of you remeber just how pi--ed off I was just trying to attach photo's here initially. However, now its a breeze once I've learned it. This DG has not only broadend my armor knowledge, but my computer knowledge as well. You're the man Doug, moderate away!

Hi Doug
This forum is fine.
If you are changing the colour scheme please ensure that the back ground is light and the symbols are as dark as possible...I see some web sites that have dark backgrounds and dark symbols and the contrast is practically zero making them unreadable...This format is fine..
thanks

Well, I've had a glimpse of what our hosts have been working on, and I think you're gonna' like it (no AF blue, I promise). Think....more along the lines of AFV News colors and you get the idea. Everything would pipe over as is, so you'll all do nothing new. The contrast is good, and the tones pleasant. It tends to reduce glare and appears "simpler", somehow.

jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez I must have missed that part.......or where you over at bushy's sheep pen ??

We tryed to help out a friend at Com-Central that had a lil problem, so we understand that some of you iron mud crawler thingy jocks maybe need some getting used to the place, but trust me on this one, once you get used to the different options we have available for the members here at Com-Central you'll feel at home and in real life when you move house you wil do a little recon of the place as well, won't you ?

Feel free to take a look at them wingy thing forums..............you may even like some topics we have there, and in case you have questions about various items about the board feel free to drop us a line or just post it up on the board, as far as we know there is no magic or voodoo involved to handle things around here.

Also on the subject of paint.............we are doing our very best to get you setup with a fitting "house style" but alas you know that in the real world paint needs to dry for a bit........so be patient it won't be long now
