  • Changes on the forum

    The software upgrade has resulted in some changes forced upon the function of the forum.

    For instance, all the links I had set up for things such as regional fuel prices and such donít function any more. Since I know the fuel survey link is used, I set it up as a sub-navigation bar tab at the very top of the forum. Click on that and youíll be brought to the Port of Everettís regional fuel price survey site.

    My question now is, was anyone making use of some of the other links? They are all closed now, but I can set up an alternative to get you there if you made use of them and would like them back up. So let me know if you were in the habit of using the links to the following:

    NW Boatinfo
    National Weather Service forcast
    Tides
    AIS Live Ships Map

    If so, Iíll see what I can do to restore those links somehow.

    Thanks!

    One last chance to save any of those links. If no one responds that they use these links (NW Boatinfo, National Weather Service forecast, Tides, or AIS Live Ships Map), then I will delete the links.

    Thanks!

      If I'm the only one, then delete them all. I thought, IMHO, that they added a touch of uniqueness to the forum, very professional. But again, just my opinion.

        I agree, they're cool to have. Only now with the new layout of the forum, I can't keep them in their own little area. They would have to be clickable buttons at the top of the main forum page. If no one uses them, they'd kind of clutter up the page I fear.

        For sure I up the fuel price survey link up there, but it's the others I'm curious about. There's no way I am able to tell if anyone has even ever clicked on them! I'd be happy to retain any that folks use, but if they don't, then I'll just cut them loose....

          I know I did, thought they were really useful, but I can pull them up without going on the forum. I may be the only one that used the fuel link also. No worries, I would cut them loose. As far a fuel link goes, it's nice not only to see how much fuel costs and where, but more particularly who's selling NON-Ethanol fuel and who isn't...

            I'll look into it in the next few days. I'd like to keep the links if I can do so without the page looking too cluttered. But I, too, use the fuel price survey quite a bit, so that's already up there at the top of the page!

              I don't think that top line detracts at all.

                Is it just me or does it appear there is a serious lack of activity here since the forum has been updated......?

                        AK,
                        A couple of 28' advertised in Alaska if you are looking for something close. The new site seems to be overrun with Craigs List GP ads, which is fine, but maybe none of the members are working on fall projects.
                        The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.

                          To busy paying property taxes to work on their boat projects. My two cents!
