Suggestions to improve this forum
Posted 23 September 1999 - 10:28 AM
The cost of the web space is minimal, but I only get 5MB.I have a couple of places that I could put advert banners for different companies etc, to make a bit of money, but other than that I'm not offering anything really.
To get more (50mb) it does cost a bit more but nothing large. I would probably need more space if I start a FTP site.
FTP might be a bit difficult as it's not actually my server so I can't give out unix logins. Maybe I can come up with a system where people can Email me things and I'll put them up for download?
Would people be interested in a FTP download area? (Post some replies if so...)
Any suggestions welcome.

view all posts above/below the view today's posts button.
After going down several followup messages, I always wind up
either selecting 'back' a few times, or going to the main menu
then back to the forum to get the full list.

Thanks for your work on this forum.
I have one suggestion for improvement. I would like to be able to see a bio of a person who has posted something. It would be extremely useful to know for instance ProIV experience, geographic location, present job / company of the person placing a post. Among other things, it could help several of us locate local or nearby knowledgable ProIV people.
Also, it might help in knowing the bias (positive or negative) or people who are posting information about ProIV.

Due to some people's delicate positions, they may prefer to remain nameless, but still want to share their opinions, without getting in trouble with their superiors at work.
However, it would not be pleasant to see this message board degenerate into a slanging match between disgruntled programmers and ProIV support. I do hope that we all exercise a little bit of restraint when criticising our beloved programming tool. Let's try to remember that for most of us, it pays the bills.

1) A central repository to hold details of useful information posted to the forum. For example details of SYSF, bootstrap file layouts (though this would be better as a downloadable), known bugs and their workarounds, etc.
2) The descriptions of replies to postings should be made more descriptive of their contents, if appropriate. If you look at all the replies to this post that I'm responding to they all say 'Re:Suggestions to improve this forum'. If you found an interesing reply that you want to go back to it is very dificult to find it again.

I do find that the pages take a real long time to load at times,
Sometimes it even hangs & I have to do a reload (usually after
clicking on the 'Top of Forum button').
Does any one else have this problem?
Are you aware of any upload limits from your ISP?
Keep up your great effort.
