    Yes!

    I look at the birthdays every day to see if there's anyone that needs some birthday wishes and I look to see who's online a few times per day. The ones that have been here recently... not much to do with that information.

    Good feedback everyone!

    I'd like to get another 10-15 people take this quick survey and just click on the items that you use frequently when you come to the site. It's given a lot of insight alreayd, just want to make certain we don't start marking changes too early though.

    ... in case anyone just joins now, I already made the changes to the main-navigation bar and the top-level navigation. I think that makes a lot of sense. I need more feedback though!

    i dont know how everyone else on here feels about it, but certain words turn blue and are underlined, and when you run your mouse over them, it brings up a link or an advertisement. this really is aggravating b/c i'll be trying to read something, and a stupid little cloud will come up with unhelpful hints and stuff. i noticed the other day, i ran over the word exhaust, and it came up with some womens makeup product that has nothing to do with exhaust! sorry for the rambling on about it. just had to get that out there

    Some of the things I want to play with is to 1) increase the amount of ads that appear to non-registered users and 2) decrease the amount of ads that appear to registered members and 3) really reduce the amount of ads for contributing members. It's getting more expensive every month to run this site, I just need to find the right way to manage it all.

    i understand. you have to pay the bills somehow. just like the radio, ads are an essential part of the publics life

    Steve, I like the new placement for the menu/links/tabs. It seems to put things more in their place.

    What would be even nicer than the 'Today's Posts' would be a 'New Posts' button that would give you the new posts since the last time you hit the button. Over on mercedesshop.com/shopforum that is how the forums work.

    Also having an advanced search feature would be great.

    I really like this place as I have been looking for a good forum to discuss my Suburban. SO far I have gotten great information here.

    Thanks for the response!

    Actually, the Today's Posts shows you all the new threads that have been added to since your last visit. They are the highlighted (in bold) section in order from newest to oldest. Then anything that has not been added to but is still in the past 24hrs gets put at the end.

    And could you share a little but about the advanced features that are not here? The features on this forum seem very advanced, letting you pick by forum, author, tags, etc etc.

    Thanks for the input, I'm sure it's appreciated!

    The Search button on the navigation bar opens to an advanced search feature page.
