NEW OWNER of V70R and S60R

65 posts in this topic

I'm not on this board as much as I am on SwedeSpeed, but i almost died laughing ( in a good way ) when i saw "Home of JRL" !!

:lol:, followed by applause !!

14 thumbs up !!!!

Not clear what the issue was on SS vs JRL, but can't imagine it was warranted. I've have bought one car from him..though was a beater. i still have it, though drive my 05V70R primarily.

Guess I'll have to spend more time on this board in the future ...

I sure CAN! B)

I have been busy. So v70R has changed hands? And the thread announcing the change is a pissing match between the two biggest a holes in entire world of volvo related interwebness? (That would be che_moderator and jrl in no particular order). good lord. the end is near.

Any reason why when searching with "my content" I can't find my own post any older then Feb '10? I think I started some before that dated... ph34r.gif

Also when I hit new content sometimes it skips new stuff and tells me there's no new content when there is... The old site did the same thing too, and it was NEVER got fixed..unsure.gif

i don't know the exact answer on the feb 10, but IIRC there was a system crash and that might of been the last back up.

the content, you've never added anything worthy of being considered content. :lol::lol::P

View new content shows you all the posts you have not read in the last 24 hours. If you do nto come here for 2 days than view new content in theory shows you only half of the new content/

Hello Pot, I'm Kettle... rolleyes.giflaugh.gif Other then your "I bought V70R" post, you haven't had much lately either Mike... tongue.gif

I can vouch that it will show you zip... Is there anyway of making the new content more then 24hrs? It just seems like a very short about of time if you aren't here once every 24hrs...sad.gif

Mike just asked me to have it where when you click "View Members posts" it shows you all of them, not just last years worth. I am not comfortable with doing this until I see how much extra load it will put on the server. As for "View New Content" thats a user defined setting. You just need to click the drop down at the top right next to your avatar and select settings. At the very bottom of that page you will see search options. Check it from last 24 horus to all.

You should not be uncomfortable

This is not a highly read site (at least not until now, that may change, who knows)so ALL newer content should be up there

Did you even read my reply?

You said "Up there" so I assume you mean the upper right where it says "New Content" If you had read you would have seen that ALL new content is an option, but its user defined not server defined.

As for members post under profiles, I want to check server impact first. Yes this is a small site now, but that does not mean it should be slow. Second the last thing I want to do is give you a feature now to have to take it away later. You bitch for weeks when I move a feature. God forbid I remove one. BTW Mike said he was banning you, can you even reply still?

Thanks, I found the option for "content I haven't read" and changed it. I'll check it out this way see if this is better. But to be honest I would think with the amount of traffic (or lack there of) on this site that "view new content" should linger 48hrs or more... I mean I'm here almost every day and I still miss a ton of post... I do agree with Jim, "all newer content should be up there". I did like the old site when you could select "today, last week, last 2 weeks"... But for me those buttons didn't work 99% of the time! I asked Rob several times if this was something he would fix and he didn't. This was the main reason I was not happy with the site, and the fact that all my constructive criticism was ignored. If you are missing most of the new posts then what's the point of having the "view new content" button... I can manually search on my own, who needs a button that doesn't work most of the time anyway... blink.gif

For the older posts the only reason I needed them was a member was asking about something I had posted 2 years ago and just couldn't find it. I would be nice to have that abilty to pull up older posts without spending lot of time looking for it... unsure.gif

I still think you all need to change the colors, anything that is different from VS. I guess this isn't a high priority now but I think it would make it easier for the VS/VR users...

Just my $.02.smile.gif

I think a lot of people just are not using the search options correctly. If you posted something more than a year ago, its going to be way quicker to sue the search vs scrolling through all your posts. As for 24 hours vs 48 vs something else, my logic was than if you wanted that just set it to all as I suggested for you. That way you can scroll back however far you want, 1 day 10 days, a million days as the posts are listed cronologically.

I rarely have good luck with the search function, I normally have better luck with Google. That could be why I don't use it. wink.gif I used the search function like you suggested and yes I found the post I wanted. But I disagree. Searching everyones post vs. a hand full of my posts, seems like the long way to get there, if you know what I mean...sad.gif
