I'll use this thread to announce new features added to acadiaforum.net.

02-12-2007 - Added the "go up" and "go down" buttons to the thread pages for easy movement to the top and bottom of the page. Also added a "recent posts" section to the main page for easier access to the most recent thread posts. (Hint - click the blue "new" icon to go to the first unread reply.)
02-15-2007 - We had a successful and uneventful upgrade to a newer version of the forum software. Please let us know if you notice any odd behavior or anything broken on the site.

Thanks,
admin

03-22-2007 - I've tweaked the search page and indexes to hopefully give quicker and more accurate results. I was seeing results that didn't seem to match my search terms. Hopefully the new changes will eliminate those (or at least make them less relevant). I also change the Main page to show a random poll on each load instead of a static one that had to be manually adjusted. Finally, the main logo rotation has started, with more being added over time.

08-24-2007: Added "Topic Preview". When you hover over a subject in either the Message Index or the the Recent Posts section of the homepage, a preview of the message will display in a tooltip.

One comment on this - this mod uses the title attribute, which Firefox cuts off after 80 characters (this is a bug that is scheduled to be fixed in Version 3), but displays the full 300 in IE. If you are using Firefox and want to see the full preview, you can install the following Add-On, which fixes the bug in current versions:

09-07-2007: Added a "Sponsor Section" to the main page. Each acadiaforum.net sponsor will get their own dedicated board in this section where they can post their products, announcements, sales, etc. You can also use this area to ask them specific questions about their products. If you have a need for the products or services these sponsors sell, please support them! They help keep forums like this up, running and free for everyone!

12-17-2007: Added a "Home" button next to the "Go Up" button on the bottom of the message display pages. This way, once you've finished reading a topic, you can quickly return to the homepage (Board Index) without having to first scroll back to the top of the page.

June 4, 2008: I've created regional boards so that you can meet other local acadia owners, arrange get-togethers, or simply have more localized discussions than the main board (comparing local dealerships for your area, for example). On the main page, there's now a "Regional Boards" container that has subboards for each region - for example: Northeast, Midwest, South, etc.

You can find out which region your state belongs to by going to the main Regional Board, which has the descriptions of each region - http://www.acadiaforum.net/forum/index.php?board=32.0

I'll repeat them here, though, to save you a step:

Northeast - Serving CT, MA, ME, NH, NJ, NY, RI, VT

MidAtlantic - Serving DC, DE, MD, NC, PA, VA, WV

South - Serving AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, SC, TN

Midwest - Serving IA, IL, IN, KY, MI, MO, MN, ND, NE, OH, SD, WI, WY

Southwest - Serving AR, CO, KS, NM, OK, TX

Northwest - Serving AK, ID, MT, OR, WA

West - Serving AZ, CA, HI, NV, UT

Canada East - Serving Ontario & east

Canada West - Serving Manitoba & west

Love the two new pics. Just wanted you to know some of us do look at those, and do really (still) dig them.

Makes replying a little easier; fewer steps in the process
