    Please post your Questions and inquiries here - I will do my best to answer them each day while I am working on the forums

    A Few Changes to be sure

    1) All Registered members have access to live chat now. It is located in the bottom right of your screen when you log in

    2) All Registered members are allowed to upload RC Photos and Videos to the gallery

    3) All Registered members can have a signature

    ### Registered Members do have limited accounts

    4) Current and New Elite members have n increased Storage File and Quotas; still have access to their forums (not in General RC Area)

    5) Improved MEDiA ie: Video & Photography Area

    6) PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to the "NAVBAR" at the Top - "Home", "Forums", "Media" - Each one of these categories have a Drop down Menu (except "Home")


    I Encourage you to Upload some photos and videos. You will see how they now integrate with your posts, and you can easily attach your media to your threads. You will see what I mean within a few usages..


    I will continue to work on the coding... but I do have limitations.. haha

    No problem - click on your name at the top - on the left hand side there is "signature"

    Click the image tab, and insert a url for your image :)

    *** A SiGNATURE wiL ONLY APPEAR ONCE per THREAD!

    Someone else had a question about "How Do I read NEW POSTS"

    Answer: Hover over the Forums Tab, and select "New Posts" from the sub menu :)

    I know you said Tapatalk is no longer needed, but does that mean it's no longer supported?

    TapaTalk is no longer supported here at the forums - There is no current need for the extra resources, as this forum is completely mobile friendly.

    If its still an is an issue in a month - I will revisit it

    Signature Pic size 400x169 seems to looks OK at this stage but its up to Medic to decide on a size limit as we don't want A3 sized Signature pics... The old forum size was something like 500 x 212 and that just appears BIG on this new forum.

    Yup, all of the likes were set back to 0. Nothing we can do about that unfortunately! As for missing posts - that may have been because of data migration - and is why I had a disclaimer on the site for 1 week, that - that was a possibility.

    Sorry, not much we can do - the Upgrade was required, and stuff happens.

    Thanks for all the hard work. I know it's not easy when you don't feel good.
    This is just more awesomeness for us RC addicts.

    @RCSparks: Hope this is a simple one to solve: Links to YouTube videos in the old forum design used to appear as a clickable preview image, but now they are a plain URL link of the name of the video ("[ URL=...][/URL]") (e.g. in my Rubicon build series).

    But if you make a new video link (using the toolbar in the new forum design), the video is inserted as a "[ MEDIA=...][/MEDIA]" clickable preview image e.g.



    Can anything be done to fix all the old posts with URL links to videos "youtube.com/watch?v=..." etc. to have the "[ URL=..." tag 'corrected' to the "[ MEDIA=..." tag (e.g. run a script on the forum database)?
