Okay, here goes.
1. It says at the top that I have not been here since July.
2. It always has all the threads either started or added to since that time still in bold rather than non bold as it should be.
3. When I have been here it does not always show I have been here at the bottom of the page where the 24 hour listing is shown.
4. Last, it seems with all the members/visitors that the input/new threads/responses to threads still only runs about 20 per day. Considering the number who visit/members that is extremely low or are the visit/members being skewed somehow by the program running the site?
Just wondering and not trying to find fault as ANYONE can find fault.

I'll try an answer the best I can, each time you log-in the board records
your cookie, that's how it remembers you next time you log-in. It could
be ( I'm thinking out aloud here ) a cookie thing, try cleaning out your
cookie's and temp internet cache, it may be it's stored and old cookie.

At the bottom it will only show a limited amount of people who have
log-in in 24 hours. That's all I can think of, can't fine any setting for it.

That sounds about right 20-25 members posting threads or response.
But never the same 20-25 members, yeah a few regulators who post
every day.

passion4pontiacs.com and PontiacZone.com were two sperate boards
and passion4pontiacs.com members and threads have been imported
to PZ, reason why some members have imported in fornt of their user
name. another thing I've given some thought to, is people who were
members on both boards but with different user names, but using the
same IP and e-mail address. The board works off of e-mail address and
IP numbers.

PZ is number one in all the serach engings, it's rated number one
site for that reason....I know...I know.... it appears that PY has the
most daily post, if you go by post listed as post made ( Today ) vs
post made ( yesterday ) we don't fix that, it can how ever be
manipulated, to show randomly post that were made three or even
up to a week ago, as made today. It goes by groups, members
are listen as groups, if you had someone sitting there all day that
could play with this we could have pages of new post...LOL

Go to PY you'll see in the top bar



Then go to PontiacZone.com but don't log-in here's what you'll see.

Tech ForumsUser CPMembers ListCalendarNew PostsQuick Links Log Out


Notice after search it has Quick Links, PZ has New Post in that bar plus if
you click on Quick Links, it list Todays post. you can check it either
way. Can't do that on PY..I wonder why ?

But PY only list Todays Post...wink..there's no Quick Link. In short there's
no way to chick for new post.

I can't log-on PY, I'm not a member, so you may have a different view/bar
if log-in as a member. There's no doubt PY seems to have allot more Traffic. Also have to remember PY is a business the board is just part of
the site.

PZ is only 5 years old....PY is over 12 years old. They've done a ton of advertising, ton's of sponsorships, sponsoring racers, and events. Magazine advertising. He who spends the most money just like politics
has control. PY is a million dollar business

Ok guys, forgive my ignorance as far as being a Computer expert goes, along with the fact I am a newbie here. I am afterall 45 years old and everything I know about these things is self taught. I do real well using e-mail, researching and buying/selling things and ofcourse, the ocassional naughty site visits.....lol. First, how do you set a picture to show along with your user name and secondly, how do you post pictures of your Car/Engine/whatever on a post? Thanks in advance for the help.

When I get home tonight I'll do it so I can take screen shots and do it right...the past couple of days have been crazy....I found my 'Birds again and now the fun part begins getting them back from the former Sputnic Motorsports.



edit: Screen shots didn't come out right and now it's time to go, so I'll try again tomorrow...
