    Thanks to FFstaff, we know have the ability to put a board header on the top and bottom .. we can then put links in there .. with for example FA's welcome thread etc.
    And also put forum announcements, such as when the next outer rim or social get togther is in the top header.

    Here's an example of what it would look like you want to change it to the header style.

    JCC

    ok..if we want to change it, here is some of things that must be there.

    Using it to announce the next meeting is fine,but using it to announce that you have found Jango's new figurine etc is not appriopriate.
    If you're posting meeting notices..we must wait till all final details are known.before sticking it in the header.

    There is no limit on the number of links you can have in the header, but I'd highly recommend you keep it to one line. For eg: Welcome Threads and Bios.

    If any one knows how to do html..the mods are asking that if would be easier to do it in html for them...PM me if you can help me with that and i 'll give you the details.

    This is the ammount of characters we are allowed..so as you can see , there isn't a great deal of room.
    There is a 1500-character (including spaces)

    Keep in mind this is optional and doesn't have to be there, but if you want it there the option is there.

    I think we can safely say the header is happily in place now.

    Only about a year after I asked for a similar feature. [face_plain] Oh well, better late...
    Anyway, I could do the HTML in my sleep. Just send me the specs unless someone else is keen to volunteer.

    Yeah soneil.. zerosleep was going over the program for the boards and discovered it was there in the program all along.

    Ok i'll send you the specs.. but i have to wait until we decide what links are going in header thou.

    The HTML for it is very simple, so all you really need to do is submit it to SithLeia, and then she can send it along to Shara.

    And it wasn't zerosleep that discovered it. ;)

    Once we have submitted links, is it possible to have them changed/deleted at a later date?

    I think if we make a specific welcome thread, or a thread that says a little bit about who we are etc would be a good thing to have. It could also include guidelines about the swearing etc, also people to go to if they require help (apart from the City Rep etc, I mean some of the "older" members of the boards).
    Also, having a link to the calendar and obviously the Outer Rim Inc. page would be good. That's just my suggestion anyway.

    Ok FA i'm just waiting on a response on that...i'm not quite sure.

    Ok here is what i was thinking could go in there.

    A thread entitled " Who or What is Fanforce Western Australia/Outer Rim " or have Outer Rim as a seperate link .

    Terms of service cover the FF's policy on swearing and behaviour on the boards.

    Links for people: How about DS, FA Soneil & myself.
    It's just these people FA being the most helpful person she is :D, it's these people i see helping some of the new people with problems etc.

    Umm do you also want me to include a link for FF definations for lurker, troll (just thought it could be reference link for some of the new people that might stroll in here.

    Funky... :) The main reason I was asking is because eventually the calendar will be linked in with the main site... But maybe the calendar would be a good thing to have seperate as well... *shrugs*

    OR website link
    OR calender link
    & the links for contacting people... Darth Soup, Fallen Angel ,Soneil and myself.

    Do you guys/girls have a problem with your a link to your PM being up there all the time?

    Pass it on to me, and I'll get it straight up - its not too difficult to do once I have the HTML. :)

    Before I start, this might be a bit picky... So... Sorry in advance... :D

    I thought we weren't going to put the Bitchin Box in?? And where's the link to the Outer Rim Inc. webpage? And is it possible to, instead of having the separated lines thing...

    Welcome to Fanforce Western Australia
    Welcome to Fanforce WA | Local Bios | Outer Rim Calendar | The Dog's Bitchin' Box
    Contacts - Darth Soup | Fallen Angel | Soneil | SithLeia

    To have it similar to this...

    Welcome to Fanforce WA | Local Bios | Outer Rim Calendar | The Dog's Bitchin' Box
    Contacts - Darth Soup | Fallen Angel | Soneil | SithLeia (I don't think we need the written "Welcome to FanForce WA" if we're going to have a thread for it...

    So that it takes up less space and maybe looks a bit better??

    Anyway, that's just my opinion/suggestions... :D Sorry if it's picky etc./>/>

    Why Soneil as a helpful person? All he does is listen to other people's ideas, wait a while, and introduce them as his own.
    Plus he never pays for his share of pizza ...

    From what I see of the contacts, we have the club pres, the vp (also former city rep), the city rep, and one of the most helpful people on the boards.
    I think the choices of contacts are valid, with regards to both board stuff and club stuff.

    I hope you're kidding.
