[b]Fixes and Issues[/b] - Minor Update
Just an FYI on some of the things I have taken care of in the past few days...
- News on homepage
... back and running again. Got out of sync and I hadn't had time to address it.
- Hometown Forums
... added to the community/board list! This is a new area for everyone to get together and meet others in their home state or surrounding area. The closer our friendships, the stronger our stand. The guys from Texas and New York/NJ already get together on a regular basis, it's one of the best things we've ever done!
This area will also house all the meeting/event information as well as the politics and activism items. (Will be moved when I get the chance!)
... is still being looked at. A few new changes went in today and a few others have gone in several times this week. Not sure what the problem is, but people are starting to have it work fine again. I will continue to examine potential problems and correct them!
- Photo Server
... changes to how the gallery lists are created (paging and format) in order to cut down on resource usage and speed things up. The galleries are also ordered properly now!
Bulk uploading was added as well. Now you can upload zip files full of images and have the server add them to your album. (It will create thumbnails for your pics too!)
- Membership Management
... finally got this moving and have announced how things will work in the Team forum. All renewal dates will begin Jan 1st for those who signed up before Jan of 2002. Email notices will go out to inform you as your membership expiration draws near.
Outside of minor fixes here and there, I have been working on a number of items off the main list. (See the State of the Site post.) The main focus will now be moving Content over to the site, setting up a new AR15.Com spellcheck server (costs are WAY too high to continue using our current service!), and continuing the effort for the Hometown community.

Didnt know where to ask this but could you tell me what BTT means? I see it in the For Sale forum.
"Back To Top" - It's used to bump a post back to the front page of the forum. [=)]
Don't know if you are aware of this one, the last few times I posted & used the size=6 code, the font has remained standard, no change.
"I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted
and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do
these things to other people and I require
the same from them."
Is the servers clock fast - it seems the post time stamp is off.

It is possible with HTTP file uploads to upload more than one file at a time. You might want to look into that rather than using ZIP files. You don't gain, and sometimes lose, when you attempt to compress already compressed images. Also, it would be easier for the users than having to create a ZIP file. I did this about five years ago using a CGI program written in C, and if you want, I can probably find it. Just ask.

They must be charging by the spelling error. [:)]

Well let's see. I'm hitting submit when my radio clock says it is 1:04:15 EST.z
