    Just a suggestion....

    Please if its possible, remove any date/time restrictions on editing our posts. Some of us made timelines and would like to include the most up to date pics in the first page.

    Thanks!

    Might as well just remove it for the entire forum, not really sure why we need a limit in the first place?

    I will discuss with the mods why there is this limit in the first place. If there isn't a valid reason then we can remove it.

    After a fairly lengthy discussion with the mods we have lifted the time limit for editing posts. If we find this causes a problem with spam or moderation then we will put it back.

    Hey John,

    I'll throw this suggestion into this thread and maybe we can see what the users think about the idea.

    The vBulletin Suite has a built in "User Blog" add-on, which allows the users to become blog authors themselves. In this area, they could write about their set-ups, gigs and any other DJ (or life changing) experiences they may have had. This area also lets them edit their posts to their heart's desire and it is even more of a showcase type of environment for them to show their kit, their DJ prowess, basically to show their love and devotion for the digital DJ/Producer hobby/ job/ industry.

    It does however, mean some more "policing" by the mods would be necessary. But, I think with the right attitudes and rules for use set in the forum and in the users' minds, it could be quite a nice addition to DJTT's already great site.

    What do you all think of the idea?

    Hi scamo,

    Very good ideas, you almost read my mind! We are trying to centralize the user profile data into one location and have a single sign-on for all parts of the site. Then features that are based on a particular user, like blog, show your setup, gigs etc will be based around a users DJTT profile. But, we are not going to use the forum for that, we are going to add features like we did with the midimaps site to create a separate section of the DJTT network that is dedicated, but highly linked to other parts of the site. Think of it as the central stream where all information about what's going on in DJTT that is relavant to the user is displayed.

    I hope that makes sense.

    - John.

    Hi John,

    Yes, I understand. But why recreate the wheel?

    so long as the same username/password can be used on all areas of the site while only ever having to register once then it sounds good to me. the forum "users page" is ofc very forum centric so i can see that having something better isn't a bad idea. hooking into the forum for user login auth still seems like the safest bet tho. "easiest" bet anyway since you can plug into that system quite easily.
