Hello my friends and fellow RC ADDiCTS! In my quest to provide you guys with a really functional super-duper forum & community, I am always scouting new software and design methods to improve your quality of visits. Here are a few of the Changes and Added Features that will benefit the way you use the RCSparks Studio Community Forums! 1) (This Feature Affects ALL Registered Members ) :XD: My friends, there is a new selective search feature. When you click your mouse/curser into the search field - a new option will appear to help you find what you would like! "Search Titles Only" and "Show Results as Posts" "Titles only", will populate search results ONLY using the word You choose, that appears in Titles of Threads. "Show Results as Posts" will show all posts that contain the word or sentance you are looking for! This will help you get to the information you need quicker than before! 2) THiS Feature Affects EVERY Visitor and Member! :hopemyfakesmilework The new "Footer" contains Links that will help you navigate throughout the site, and to some of the site sponsors. Now, though these links may change over time - notice that you can now "Edit Your Profile", "Search the Forums", Access a "FAQ/Help" file, & view "TOP Forum CONTRiBUTORS"! 3)THiS Feature Affects EVERY Member, Moderators and Admin! The FAQ & Help File can be found Near your Profile name in case you need quick help! - For Moderators - a NEW LiNK has been made available to you as well - it says "MOD". Now you can Check anything that needs moderating with Ease! I have an additional ADMiN button to allow me access to the coding area. 4) THiS Feature Affects EVERY Visitor and Member! The "Top Forum Contributors" has been installed & customized to assist in recognizing folks that really give a lot to this community. By Posting, and adding content - our forum continues to thrive with great experience. The Top 25 Contributors are listed in the chart based on Daily, Weekly, and Monthly contributions, Including "Overall" contributions. The Top Contributors can also be seen in your "Community" tab. 5) THiS Feature Affects ONLY ELiTE MEMBERS! For those folks that are able to contribute to our growing costs of running the community - and gain the Elite Membership Status... I have a surprise for YOU! Now activated - CUSTOM USER TiTLES. Yup.. You guessed it... You may now have a CUSTOM USER TITLE - and instead of your username saying "Studio Forums Elite" - You may now change it to say ANYTHING you want.. BUT! You must stay within the Forum Rules. No profanity, or otherwise questionable material.. Lol. Breach of rules and community guidelines will be grounds of revoking your Elite Membership. Be nice.. and Title Yourself ANYTHiNG you WANT! You can do this by accessing you PROFiLE, and completing the edit! My friends, I hope you enjoy the new features. I have been working on the forums for the last few days.. so thank you for your patience as I continue to build our community! ENJOY the NEW USABiLITY!
