Updates & Changes for ZDriver? Comments Wanted...

I've been in touch with Silvrhand to make some site adjustments. He's been REALLY busy lately, but asked that we put a list together of things we would like changed / fixed & he will take care of them next week (Dec 16 - 22). So please post anything that you want / need attention on.

My list:

#1... Add MARKETPLACE to main forums page.
#2... Upgrade search feature: No "30 second wait" between searches, and that it will recognize words less than 4 characters in length.

What else?

change the word Marketplace to Classifieds. That seems to be a more reconized name for selling items.

classifieds.

minimum character count.

time between searches.

increasing standard for visible threads.

maybe something about how we are automatically billed for our subs. it should be a notification and an option if you want to renew your sub.

Yep... classifieds works. I tried the search feature... I love the zero wait time! But... 3 letter searches still don't work. Like AFM ... MAF ... ???

only threads that have been posted in in the last month are shown, which means that there are very few visible threads in some forums. this may scare new people away if they dont realize that. id suggest bumping the time up a bit, maybe to like 3 months, if you can

the search limit is more annoying than the message length thing.

those suggestions rock, but there is a 300 character length for sigs that is kinda a hassle, cause i can resize my pics for my sig so they are small and not obnoxious but then i cant type more than 10 characters once they are in there....

also, come on canyon carver... come on.... im real help with s30/s130, Z32, only in spots... only in spots... dont hate me cause im beautiful

i have 2 real suggestions now.

1. get rid of the 60 seconds between sending pm's

2. give an option to re-send the email confirmation for new members, because i just got a im on aim from a new member that needed his e-mail confirmation re-sent. and i know this has happened at least once before.

edit: oh yeah and im still missing like 2000 posts from my post count

second edit: and i motion the idea to change "marketplace" to "classifieds" its what more people look for imo
