    I take full responsibility for any confusion I have created through poor communication. Please trust that what I am doing is not a huge change, most of you may not notice it, and it can be undone anytime.

    Something tells me you're just making space for ads. Which is cool, the site is just too strong to deny.
    Did you tell us that if you try to make the Poll more than "7" days and hit backspace it will flush everything !

    Exactly. He doesn't understand the difference between the concepts of "forum" and "thread". He should try to learn these things before making further complaints.

    Scoe greased Coyne so well he's ready for cooking.
    And I don't know the difference between "concept" of forum and "concept" of thread.
    I think I understand TB's concept of Beer now.

    Current forum is: Detroit Pistons General Discussion
    Current thread is: Upcoming Changes to Forum

    Forums are general categories to which similar threads belong.

    It has nothing to do with ads whatsoever. I haven't even decided where ads will go.

    I have no idea what that is about. When we changed to Xenforo, they do polls differently and maybe I didn't communicate that clearly.

    Backspace is a keyboard shortcut for the back button (unless you are typing in a text box).

    I think Xenforo is a clean interface and probably far deeper that most of us have explored. Your communication (and the resulting help from others) is excellent and forthcoming. This is just such a deep program that you have to be a moderator to get some aspects of it's depth. My suggestions:
    • First, just get rid of the membership.
    • This will greatly help in where you might want to play the ads.
    Now, perhaps only a select few, may ask: what is he getting at?

    Drop the "the"

    Just "Pistons and NBA"

    It's much cleaner.

    How about "The Ultimate NBA team, the Detroit Pistons, and some stuff about the other 29 teams too."

    Too wordy?

    "Threads that Darth Tater reads" and "Threads that Darth Tater doesn't read". Pistons and NBA would be a subset of the second group.

    It depends on what your definition of the "the" is.

    I wanted to make a reference to The Social Network, but I noticed now that I screwed up the qoute.
