CoasterBuzz updates forum software

Posted Monday, August 20, 2001 4:24 AM | Contributed by Jeff

CoasterBuzz is proud to introduce v5.0 of POP Forums to its members. The new version offers several enhancements, the most noticable of which is the "rich text" posts. Internet Explorer users can simply highlight-and-click to format text.

Also of interest is the favorite topics. Members can click "add to favorite topics" at the top of any topic then click "manage favorite topics" to get a list of those topics. Now you'll never lose the topics you care most about!

There are two items that will help the moderators. The first is that you must accept the terms of service before posting. When you see those terms, please read them. Second, the moderators may issue post quotas on members who post too frequently without saying much. This requires members (usually newer members) to choose their responses carefully and be thoughtful about their posts instead of posting countless "me too" posts.

A complete list of enhancements and fixes can be found on the POP Forums site.

If I were you I would investigate something like Amazons Honour System like they have on MousePlanet.

This allows Patrons to contibute to the cost of running the site. New Software isn't cheap even if it is sponsored as such and personally, I'd hate to lose another good Coaster site (Still hurting from the loss of Thrillride!)

Not a big deal... the author of the software is the author of CoasterBuzz!

I am having problems with the rich text post.

It's only allowing me to post a message when I choose to remove formatting.

Anyone know what the problem is?

Please respond at hoosierlandpark@yahoo.com

Thanks:)

I like the "plain post box" more then the "rich post box." The 'plain post box" is easier to work with, IMO.

Hey, earlier today, on my computer it worked. Now, on my dad's computer, it is still the old version. What should I do?
