NEW OWNER of V70R and S60R

65 posts in this topic

Hello all!!!

I’m sure you’ve seen some difference’s here in the last day or two. Not only has the software been updated, but I’m also the new owner of V70R.com and S60R.com

With some great patients from Rob, I was able to pry his baby from his hands.

I really love what Rob has created and I wanted to try and progress its exposure in our little Volvo World.

Some of you know I’m also a Global Mod on Volvospeed. I believe, I have a very even disposition and do not play favorites. I’ve owned a 04 V70R and currently a 98 V70R among other cars.

I am open to any idea’s you guys/gals have so either PM me or speak up.

I do plan on changing the set up for the FOR SALE area. This is always difficult and nobody likes change, but I hope the new set up will help avoid any BOGUS sellers and flakes.

Next I’m working on a CHAT AREA. I think this can be fun and even may help get immediate answers to problems. Who knows, maybe make a new friend as far away as down under (Trent) HaHa.

I do not plan on changing anybody’s Benefactors status either.

I hope nobody is too upset and I’d like for everybody to Thank Rob for his hard work here.

Rob will still be a Mod and I’m sure will continue to share his knowledge.

Thanks.

Mike R

Mike,

OMG I take holidays for 8 days and look what happens! :P

Well, that is indeed news.

Look forward to what you have planned and also looking forward to input from others.

Rob,

Also thanks for all your work over the years.

Looks like Mike will be a great 'foster parent' for V70R.com.

Happy New Year to all..

Trent

Hey Mike can you change the colors of the board, maybe something different to VS? I find myself getting it mixed up with VS at first look. Maybe a different shade of blue or something different altogether like reds or orange? Just some ideas for you...

Oh and don't get me started on the logo...tongue.gif How bout a nice VR in the same font?

You use VS software and I assume servers, and you BOTH went down for over 12 hours!

and why do my posts go to the bottom of the page?

Same software as before. Or atleast I didn't change it. As for the server it was 5 hours 47 minutes. It was announced on S40 to expect some outages. I figured it would be 2 hours tops but the database has some issues which are still there but I am sorting them out with the board on-line. Your posts go to the bottom? Where should they go? Not sure I am understanind what you are saying is happening. Take a deep breath big guy. Its the weekend, enjoy it. We don't want your blood pressure up for no reason.

You reply to a post, a qoute goes up automatically.

I erase the quote and that is what's left

YES, it it messed up

ANY other site when you erase a quote it leaves you with a blank page plus the (automatic) quote should NOT go up with a reply only

At least it works on AOL, IE7 etc with no issues :huh:

and ook where your post is and where mine is!

at the BOTTOM OF THE POST area not where it should be

I just loaded up a laptop and installed MSIE. I still do not see what your talking about.

As for quotes, why would you click the quote reply button just to delete the quote? Just use quick reply at the bottom of the "post reply" button at the bottom. Even doing what you are saying I cannot recreate.
