Think Is it possible to create a "box" of some kind which would give the member a quick summary of the relevant data of which the member should be aware? Along with links to the specific portions of the site at which the member could access certain features? Like: New email messages, new instant messages, new comments to be moderated (for those bloggers who moderate comments)? Maybe this "box" could be programmed to follow the member through much, if not all. of the site so that the member can click at will when the time is right?

1. Is there going to be a way to browse all available blogs on the site so that we can see what certain individual people are posting? If there is a way to do this already, I have not found it yet.

2. Am I correct in concluding that there are only three or four forums currently available? I seem to see that people on this site are "talking" as if the full range of forums area available. If so why am I not seeing them?


1. http://beta.mycopper.net/BlogDirectory/

2. The beta site only has 3 forums: General, "The new MyCopper portal", and Member Corner. All the same forums in the "old" mycopper will be here in the "new" mycopper.

Moderation is a setting applied to a forum. The "The new MyCopper Portal" forum is a moderated forum so all posts/replies in that forum need to be approved by a moderator before it's publicly visible. Unfortunately, the forum software doesn't indicate which forums are moderated. I think it's a good idea that it does so I'll add that to my list.

Although I don't think we'll have any moderated forums when we go live.

When I view the page http://beta.mycopper.net/Forum/ as a guest, the Current time shown at the upper right is correct. When I view the page as a logged-in user, the Current time is five hours too fast.

The source for a page downloaded at Noon local time showing incorrect time is:

<div class="yafForumWelcome">
<div id="divTimeNow">
<span id="ctl00_ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ContentPlaceHolder1_forum_ctl01_Welcome_TimeNow">Current time: 5:00:02 PM.</span></div>

Did you set the correct timezone in your forum profile?

Currently, there are 2 profiles: your portal profile (the profile link next to your username and logout link) and the forum profile (only shows while in the forum, under the portal profile "Active Topics | My Profile | Members"wink. We're working on a way to combine them into a single profile, but we're not there yet.

Setting the time zone in my forum profile took care of it. Is everyone else just putting up with it or am I the only one who noticed / only one who didn't know about setting the forum profile? I'm in EST/EDT and Coppernet also seems to be in the EST/EDT time zone; do all guests automatically get EST/EDT for Current time regardless of their actual location?

The expanded weather coverage is missing Crying. As I do a lot of driving for work I tend to rely on that page for weather information. It was easier to use than navigating through all the different pages on NOAA.gov.

I do like the new format and the added news coverage.BigGrin

Yes, we're in EST/EDT. Yes, guests will always get EST/EDT time.

We're using the same weather "thingie" as on the existing mycopper site so it should work the same as before. Can you tell me exactly what's missing? What do you do on the existing mycopper site to get it?

The link that says "Click here for more weather info". I did find the expanded weather page by clicking on the temperatures so that was a relief.

I was able to find the extended weather coverage by clicking on the temperatures. What is missing is the link that reads "Click Here for More Weather Info".

I've also noticed that the spell check feature seems to be disabled when posting. When I make a spelling mistake it no longer underlines it in red. It only happens when I'm using IE8. I also run Safari and I didn't get the problem with that browser.

Nowhere in my forum profile do I find any reference to time. It does ask for a zip code, which should take care of that.
My forum indicates the time is 6 hours slow........

Yes, we're in EST/EDT. Yes, guests will always get EST/EDT time.

Ok, now the time shown on this is 6 hours off/5 counting the EDT VS CDT, but I find no place in my profile to change time. I do find a zip code, supposedly for weather, although it should do the same for time.
What am I missing?

Right now there are 2 seperate profile sections. It's on the list to combine them.

The portal profile. The profile link next to the logout link next to "Logged in as ...". Here is where that zip code and other non-forum-related settings are.

Then there's the forum profile. This link is only seen while you're in the forum. It's underneath the portal profile link in the section " Active Topics | My Profile | Members ". This is where you go to change your forum settings (including the timezone) and avatar.

I've noticed that you have Bugs, Elmer, Speedy Gonzalez, Tweety & Slyvester as Avatars. Do you think you could add Foghorn Leghorn, Marvin the Martian, and most importantly the Duck. No Duck, that's dispicable...LOL

Try looking at your monitor instead of the ceiling ROTFLMAO!!! LOL Dancing Sorry, you were just asking for that one and I just could not resist!!!

BTW---I'm trying to recall where I've seen this nice pic before---was it in a banking commercial? Something like "Are you being strangled by high interest rates"???

Ok.....I finally found the time zone thing. You didn't mention you have to hold one hand in the air, while standing on one foot, wriggling your nose, while crossing your eyes. I could get to the profile you speak of, but not to the place to "MODIFY" it!! Have done that, now. We'll see if the time sets correctly, now.

"Sticky" means the thread will always be at the top of the list of threads for that forum. Stickies are usually used for FAQs or "Posting Rules" or other stuff that needs to be easily referenced without having to search or dig through pages of topics.

Only admins (and I think moderators) can make stickies.
