  1. Last week
  2. ChatBox

    @IT_Worx When can we expect the new chat ?
  3. ChatBox

    Looking forward to it!
  4. Earlier
  5. ChatBox

    Actively trying to come up with a solution right now... More likely, We will end up using IRC if we can't find a workaround.
  6. ChatBox

    The Chat Box feature is not working for me, it's showing a spinning loading icon right in front of the Load more text.
  7. I have created a thread under announcements regarding the chatbox
  8. ChatBox

    Hey Ya'll, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that i've located a chatbox for the forums and we're in the process of setting it up! This was brought up HERE *Alternatively, later on down the road IF everyone wants one, is an IRC system (Internet Relay Chat) I'll hook one up.* Ed Brown CEO AvrinTech LLC * Denotes that a third party software will be needed to access IRC
  9. Notifications should be able to be set to whatever your liking is. The hosting cost was cut down so much since we were with the old host. They were in the thousands, for an absolutely ridiculous outdated and not secure system. It was time to move on. Invision Power Systems have been proven to be more reliable over the past few years in my opinion. More updates, more secure. I'll be looking into the chat system for you guys. If you would like, I could provide an IRC System at no charge.
  10. What do you think of the new forum?

    I found that this is possible. Clicked adjust notif prefs in one of the emails I received.
  11. What do you think of the new forum?

    If the domain reg and hosting costs get to be too high, maybe you could look into one of the free providers, like Wix. I do not have a forum on the page I have with them, so not even sure if possible. Any way to turn on notifications for a new post by default? I have posted a couple times without remembering to turn this on. Apparently no way to turn it on later. Some forum software allows each person that joins to turn this option on in a user control panel. Maybe look into collecting a sales commission from sites like Amazon and Kleen-rite. Some of these posts and guides would be helpful if they included actual links to the products mentioned. I know Amazon will pay you for each item sold after clicking one of your links.
  12. What do you think of the new forum?

    Just want to apologize for my rant in previous post I edited it a bit lol . Was one of those days . I’m happy to hear feedback from all of you. . . I was happy to get the site back and take care of the $ . . And I will continue to keep us rolling ahead . And whatever changes or ideas we will try and answer . .
  13. Eric, Totally appreciate the work you and the others have done. So much good information and advice from the veteran home snowmakers. Happy to drop a little more into the hat to help keep this going, I hope everyone else that values this info does what they can too. The direct photo uploads are so easy- I gave up on third party hosting after photobucket held everyone hostage.
  14. What do you think of the new forum?

    I think the new forum is great. As soon as the old one was gone it could no longer serve a purpose. Yes, a lot of data was lost from the old forum. But there was a lot of clutter in there also. Short of a few stickies, I think anyone could build a snow gun from Reading topics on this forum. I also like how easy it is to download pictures. Keep up the good work.
  15. What do you think of the new forum?

    The chat feature in the old forum never was up and running from what I remember we are setting up chat area in new forum and . We are finishing the face page the site will look different in a bit . As for the choice of the invision platform you would have to talk to Ed . The old platform was a antique also the price was threw the roof.. Iv done as much as posinle and will continue to help get the site like the old site . I’d be happy to hear what you all would like to see or have ? I realize it’s not the old site but can go backwards only forward . If I may add Iv pretty much foot this entire bill to get this site back up and running and threw this season and I’m happy to do it and will continue to . I set up a donation link has had over 500 hits literally have had only 9 donations total. That’s right 9 lol . Our forum has our good share of regulars and this is our forum ,I understand the site does not have the info the old site did but in time hopefully guys will continue to log in valuable info as we are starting to gather . I have to pay the next six months next month . Working hard to get site looking better front page working with a few guys doing the same thing for the past 6 or so months . I’m open to everyone’s suggestions I hope that everyone at least enjoyed having the site back for this past season of snowmaking and for the years to come . Thank you Eric
  16. @Lintelmann123 Any thoughts on the comment above?
  17. I like it better than the old one. Why did you go for the Invision Community system, and not the more common systems like vBulletin or phpBB?
  18. So, what do you think? Likes, dislikes about the new forum? Suggestions? For me, I miss the classic feel of the old site and the chat feature was pretty cool too.
  19. Photobucket 3rd party hosting

    Somebody on a different form linked this Chrome plugin and it worked like a charm for me! Now I can see all the linked photobucket pictures! There are others for different browsers but here's a link to the Chrome Plugin I don't recommend CONTINUING to upload from Photobucket but this plugin is a good solution for viewing existing pictures. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-hotlink-fix/kegnjbncdcliihbemealioapbifiaedg

  22. Photobucket 3rd party hosting

    Greetings, snowguns members! I am sure everyone is probably aware by now, but Photobucket now requires a $400 annual subscription to enable 3rd party hosting. This means tags to Photobucket images will no longer work. Please consider using direct uploads to the snowguns forum, or using a different third party hosting site. You should be able to access your Photobucket account and download all your images back to your device if you so choose. I know it's frustrating to have lost all the previous forum content, but please consider that about 90% of the images contained in that content were hosted on Photobucket, and would be unviewable anyway. Thank you, and enjoy the new Forum!
