And I'd like to tell you about them[/quote]

go on the dude, what's changed?

17/01/2008 at 12:48

What changes have you made?

The outstanding issues I still have are:

1. Left column really needs to go - I've no doubt  it will be dropped the idea in the end so it may as well be now or is there an ego thing going on behind the scenes somewhere? 

2. Search needs to work 100%

3. Quote needs to work 100%

4. Preview post function needed

5. New threads button needed (should show new *unread threads*) Without which users have no means of keeping abreast of content.

6. Layout and colour scheme is somewhat better but still unpleasent and hard on the eyes. Lose the red, lose the HUGE fonts, thick block rows and massive folder icons in the index and of course that left column mentioned above.

7. Database needs migration needs looking at in fine detail as links to other forum content and many Images now have dead links rendering vast amounts of content useless.

Do you have a timeline for addressing the above Admin?

Quote from Ben:

About competitions

The single exception to our not passing your data to another company is where you enter competitions that specifically say something like 'By entering this competition you agree that Yamaha* may retain and use your data submitted as part of this competition' *or whoever sponsors the competition.

This would be a clear statement on the competition-entry page and would not affect any of your settings elsewhere on the site.

Can I just check - how does this affect the Photo Comp that I do (not quite the same scale as the prized comps obviously).  I've had several express concern about submitting their entries even tho they are hosted away from here (ie on  my site).  Their concern is fuelled by the fact I refer to it as the "Visordown" Photo Comp (Can I continue to do so?) and whether they will find their stuff suddenly printed in a Magicalia mag somewhere.   I really don't want  to stop the comp continuing if at all possible.

J40ADF you need to read the related article

FA

"Any new forum content that we publish in TWO magazine will only come from Visordown's TWO forum. If we ever wanted to print other content in TWO or elsewhere we would be sure to confirm that you were happy for us to do this. "

That should keep any pics out of the magazine without consent.

Any new forum content that we publish in TWO magazine will only come from Visordown's TWO forum.

If we ever wanted to print other content in TWO or elsewhere we would be sure to confirm that you were happy for us to do this.

Ben, while I appreciate you taking the time to openly address this issue, if the above is true then you really don't need to have the existing T&C statement:

any Content provided by you by, for example, posting messages to bulletin boards or chat forums, uploading files, inputting data, or engaging in any other form of communication through this Website, although owned by you, is subject to a royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive, unrestricted, world-wide licence allowing Magicalia to use, distribute, copy, sub-license, adapt, transmit, publicly perform or display any such content. You agree to irrevocably and unconditionally waive on your behalf in perpetuity in respect of such Content the benefit of any provision of law known as moral rights of authors or any similar law in any country.

So presumably deleting that will be the change you refer to?

As pointed out in another thread by another poster, these terms and conditions may last longer than you and the present management of Magicalia - there would be nothing to stop a future purchaser 'plundering the vaults'.

Ah... you mean the title hidden off screen outside of the thread content.... I missed that also along with everyone else it seems.

Who's clever idea was it to not put the article links in the thread itself? There's so much garbage outside of the threads itself that I'm training myself not to look at it.
