  Update Your User Titles
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-09-2019, 08:24 AM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

This is completely optional! 

Click on your username at the top left and then click EDIT PROFILE from the drop down menu.  On your profile page, you can add a new user title in the field on the top right and then click UPDATE PROFILE at the bottom! 

Done!  Please keep the titles short...if they are too long, it will mess up forum margins.

These titles will show up in the hover cards that appear around the forum when ever your username is hovered over as well as below your avatar in the post profiles.

Again, this is optional and just for fun!!

Any Q's...let me know! thumb


  New Forum Awards System!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-09-2019, 08:07 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (2)

With the new software updates, the old awards system became unstable so I had to upgrade to the newest version...in the process, we had to wipe out all the old awards that were issued.  The good news is that the new system has a request feature that allows you to request your awards and the Staff can approve them fairly quickly! 

You can go to the Awards page from the FUN STUFF tab in the nav bar at the top of the page (or click the link below) and stat requesting awards!  You can also view your awards in your USER CP under the Awards tab on the left!

If you think we need a new award or category, let me know!!


  Anyone good with building Wordpress Sites?
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-05-2019, 07:39 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (5)

I am working on a Wordpress site that is attached to the forums...it will be the 71-73 Mustang Wikipedia to replace our antiquated forum data pages!!  I need a volunteer helper that knows their way around the Wordpress admin panel to help add content to each page!  The info on the current forum data pages doesn't seem to copy and paste real well so it will need formatted to the new site.  After the site is done, it should be pretty cool as well as educational! 

If your interested, PM me and let me know...send some references or links of any WP sites you may have worked on.  Doesn't have to be just 1 person, we can use multiple folks if the knowledge is out there!


  ALERTS!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 10-31-2019, 09:05 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (13)

We have a new forum feature called ALERTS! 

Alerts will display certain forum events such as when you receive a reply to a post or when you get rep, etc...

There is a link in the nav bar up top near the USER CP link...it will show you your alerts and you can also delete them from the pop up or you can visit the alerts page from your USER CP.  You can also select which alerts you get from the Alert Settings link in the USER CP. 

I also installed "Mentions" so you can type a members name in a post with an @ symbol in the front (@username) and it will link their profile and send a alert that they have been mentioned!  

Just something fun added to the forum but also useful so you don't miss any Mustang action!!

Thanks and enjoy!!

  New VIP Subscriptions App!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 10-29-2019, 09:02 AM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

I am testing out a new VIP Subscriptions App!  It allows you to purchase a VIP Upgrade and it will automatically change your status match the level the VIP level that you donated for!  You can see where you are in your USER CP under the Subscriptions tab on the left.  The new system will also allow you to upgrade from VIP to Site Supporter by only paying the difference between the two levels! 

If anyone was thinking about becoming a VIP...I'd love to have a few Guinea Pigs to try it out!  (PLUS we certainly appreciate the support!!)  Cool 

The Donation and VIP links up top should take you to the new App or you can goto your USER CP to find it.

Thanks!

We have another VIP upgrade to award to any regular, non-VIP member just for guessing what the item pictured below is and what it does!  Non-VIP's need to guess the correct answers but our VIP's, Staff, Vendors, Supporters and Benefactors can guess wrong answers only!

This VIP upgrade was sponsored by a super generous forum supporter!  If you would like to sponsor a game, PM me and we will keep it completely anonymous!  It's a fun way to help support the forums!  We are also looking for any physical donations that we can raffle off for $1 or $3 dollar tickets!  All forum members will be eligible for raffles!  So if you want to get in on the game, PM me with your ideas!

But for now, here is your visual clue...tell us what it is and what it does!  Let the guessing begin!
