Hi! Well done Hein and Wino on getting this going.

First suggestion is to get rid of the phpbb icon on left and replace with your own.

As I spend time, I will make further suggestions if thats cool with you.

Cheers mate, Lito

Avatar size - 100x100 - max 12kb - more than enough?  Mine is less than 6kb - maybe because I'm ugly?  :lol:

I think the member rules should be quite strict, this forum is only for DS scoots, good to see Lito as a moderator. I also think that multiple personalities should be banned. If one cannot say something with is primary 'name' then he should say nothing at all.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Hi Adv and Mav and Mac!

Mates, I would definately say that multiple personalities will be deleted. The crap we all experienced elsewhere, wont in my opinion, be tolerated here.

Yeah, smilies - I agree Mav - Hein - can we do something there bud?

Shit guys, I agree - i just don't know how to do everything yet?  I can help myself with IT stuff but are no buffin.  My corporate firewall is also limiting in actions I can perform.  If anyone is lank knowledgable with phpbb stuff and have good connectivity and is reliable - let me know - I shall give admin rights to make these changes?  Voluteers ??  - if not plse be patient - I'll figure it out soonest.  

maybe its not a bad idea to give a second person (with more IT knowledge and skills than myself  :oops:) admin rights for times that I'm not available??  Opinions, ideas, voluteers?

Cheers

Thanx for volunteering.  We must chat - with the admin rights you can configure the site, etc - but I need to give you access to the control panel of the hosting site too - with that we can modify the phpbb code for logos etc, change the look and feel with templates, etc etc

plse check www.phpbbhacks.com to get an idea what I'm talking about

Cheers

I have a suggeston Hein - create a vendor forum where vendors can advertise their wares - and possibly offer us a discount - and its also a place where we can perhaps crit vendors - both positive and negative?

That way we can have a dedicated place that allows the consumer to know whats good and whats not. As well as for the Vendors to freely let us know what they have to offer. I see we have two vendors already on this list, it would be good for them to be able to advertise nice goeters for the baaiks.

Hoezdaai?

Nice idea, Lito! Having to surf the internet under the current view that SA Bike accessory retailers have not yet caught on to being digitally accessible in terms of the satisfaction monitor, or having to 'waste' my Saturday morning cruising to some of the bike shops is not the ideal. Apart from advertising run-of-the-mill stuff, if a vendor reads certain posts, they will know what to advertise, and when.

Furthermore, how about asking members to volunteer to gather info on various topics, e.g. tyres, touring bags, zorsts, fork oil, chains, sprockets etc and then posting the info. This could be links or actual write ups.
