Why one quotation mark for quotes?

Had that issue on chrome initially (win64), ctrl-r fixed it (cache issue)

Don't know if anyone got a "Bad Gateway" error for the forum for about five minutes just then, I know I did, but the site seemed to sort itself out, which is clever! :)

Apologies all the same. We're on super duper improved servers so - if it was server end - we'll investigate!

Apparently it was an adblock issue. Turning it off for the site (which it should have been anyway) solved it.

Besides big display issue, the logo and navigation buttons on the main page weren't displaying properly either.
Which is strange since there were no problems on the forum side of the site.

Another small update:

- slight font size bump on several areas of the forum
- some more alignment "errors" fixed

blocks/stars explanation: (we might go back to the stars images from the old forum)

Administrator = 5 red blocks/stars
Moderators = 5 green blocks/stars

Post count based groups:

Group Name:    Stars:       Posts Needed:
Member                             0
Member                             1
Full Member       *              100

Well, I should hope so.  This is a spaceflight forum after all, so they should definitely be stars.   :D


I made a comment about this a few days ago.  I thought it was on this thread, but it was here:  http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=32794.msg1095666#msg1095666


With my scheme, you'd need 10,000 comments to get 5 stars, which would make it a very small and elite group indeed.  (I'd be OK with giving administrators and moderators 5 stars regardless of their number of posts, so that their comments command attention.)


I see that the color scheme has been implemented, with administrators being red and moderators blue.  How about making L2 members green?  That would be another way to help distinguish L2 threads from the public ones.

How come I'm suddenly a 'new member'?  I don't post much, but I've been a member since 2007 or so.

This seems to have happened in the last couple of days.  I had a couple of yellow squares on Friday.

Not a big deal, just curious.

Any reason why I'm now seeing advertisements on the forum even when logged in? Never used to before.

See Jester's comment just above mine.


With my system, you would have two stars and I would have three.

You can NOT see them when logged in?

I always had them, I thought it was a "feature" of the site.

Yes, that's right - I never used to see adverts before today, but now I see the site booster, plus an automatic advertisement post by "NASASpaceFlight.com Forum" after the first post in every thread (edit: Actually after the first post at the top of every page).

I do use Firefox with Adblock Plus, which removes the adverts in the post by "NASASpaceFlight.com Forum", and so I just see the post header, although the post does not contain anything. This never used to happen before today. I believe L2 members are not supposed to see adverts?

Edit: See attachment.

Ahh, OK. I thought you might not have been getting the "NASASpaceFlight.com Forum" in the 2nd post. I'm still getting all the stuff I used to before, but I'm not using an ad blocker.

I also get the empty NASASpaceflight.com Forum post as the second post on every page.  I'm running AdBlock.  I turned it off and I do see an ad there.  I don't remember that with the old system.  On the other hand, my memory is notoriously untrustworthy.

No change, ads have always been there, if your adblocker plugin isnt blocking them, something might have changed on the plugin side.
Chris keeps the ads at a bare minimum anyway but they do help pay for the site.

EDIT:
Ads after the first post are off on the L2 boards btw.

Anyone who uses Adblock, who isn't a L2 member, should see one page and one page only, telling them to they are a leeching scumbag, with a picture of me pointing towards an exit sign.....or maybe a .gif of my right boot swinging! ;D

Anyone using Adblock ought to add custom filter to whitelist NSF so that Chris&co gets some revenue to run servers, eh;

I like the idea of L2 members having a different name color. It would help distinguish signal from noise in public threads.

      Some people just don't like-
1 )  Having third party cookies placed on their computer.
2 ) Accidently clicking ads they didn't meant to.
3 ) To avoid pop up ads on some of the other sites.

Oh so that is how we will get a better picture of you posted  ::) :).
I do see the smiley face ( grin ) in your post.
Calm down though, I do sometimes actually read the ads  ;D. ( Ads not blocked )
Now if they would just place a more variety of ads.
And see my post at reply #157.

I like the idea of L2 members having a different name color. It would help distinguish signal from noise in public threads.
I would see if the L2 section had a different color for the screen names ( if they aren't already ) so L2 members now what area they are posting in (  public or L2 forum ). It should not be a programming problem to do.

Keep in mind that there are a lot of great non L2 members postings on the public forum.
