Boy that all sounds like just so much fun! Trust levels????

But thank you Robin for taking the time to write all that out. (Seriously!)

Should I mention that some people should perhaps be given automatic advanced "trust levels" but that would take a lot of manual work and assessment.

Does the new forum now somehow allow us to re-edit our own thread titles or do we still have to go to an Admin to get that done?



https://blog.discourse.org/2018/06/understanding-discourse-trust-levels/

Users at trust level 2 can…

Use the “Invite others to this topic” button for one-click onboarding of new users to participate in topics
Invite outside users to PMs making a group PM
Daily like limit increased by 1.5×
Ignore other users
Edit their own posts for up to 30 days after posting


Users at trust level 3 can…

Recategorize and rename topics
Access a secure category only visible to users at trust level 3 and higher
Have all their links followed (we remove automatic nofollow)
TL3 spam flags cast on TL0 user posts immediately hide the post
TL3 flags cast on TL0 user posts in sufficient diversity will auto-silence the user and hide all their posts
Make their own posts wiki (that is, editable by any TL1+ users)
Daily like limit increased by 2×

Trust level 3 has the name 'Regular'
and you would reach that level quickly.
Regulars are those who visit regularly, read posts by others regularly, does everything regularly and are thus entrusted with house keeping and cleaning chores.
Before trust level 3 just give an admin a mention by using @ + call sign or send a message.

Must say, the new site is easy to set up an account for, and looks so much better on a smart phone. The ease of uploading photos is a real bonus. Saves loads of time and faff. Well done Armorama!

The old and the new forums are separate when it comes to user-id and log-ins so you will need to create a new account.
The account creation process includes activation e-mails sent to the e-mail address you enter. Sometimes these e-mails go missing. I monitor new accounts and do a "management" activation if it seems that the process has gotten stuck

As most of you hopefully know by now the current forums will be closing down and the new forum is up and running so please consider starting new threads in the new forums.
The content of the old forums will be archived but those arcives will be read-only (no replying et.c).



Hi Robin,

I'm excited about the transition. But.... I just tried to post pictures in the new forum, snow white build, and found I couldn't even though I was logged in (to the old site?). Do I need to setup a new account for the new site? Or am I missing something?

Cheers

Matthew

Let's be clear as to my issue here:

NOT complaining about moving.

I AM complaining about the huge wealth of existing data NOT moving with us except to a separate archive! One that will be less used, less accessible and less known as a reference source!



Until things have completely moved (which is a huge task, so be patient) and until the new platform (forum as well as sites) is fully operational I suggest you keep quiet.

When we finally see how things turn out there will possibly be options to improve things, make the archive better visible and usable (if needed) etc ...

Ranting and raving a this moment in time is counterproductive, to say the least.


I find this comment extremely rude, I don't care who you are or think you are. How about you keep quiet.

I can’t believe that people are complaining about moving to the new and improved site?
It’s over Johnny.

OK, I understand what you said in the first line - yes it's searchable.

GREAT! Wonderful. - Question answered;

As to the paragraph that follows I honestly doubt even a programmer would have understood what you were driving at. Maybe, but I doubt it!

Jim you are being foolishly condescending but then again I am being decidedly hostile so maybe that makes us even.

You told me at the outset that I didn't know what I was talking about so excuse me if I ask questions in order to ascertain just what the data archive is and is not capable of.

As to my prior experience: I admit I was born at night - just not last night!

Which begs another fair question: Will the archive be searchable or will it be just a static file format that folks will have to page through to see if something interests them???



Lol... sorry I find comments like this a bit funny. Of course it will be searchable. By the best search available to anyone on the planet. Google.

We haven't had internal searching of the forums or the site for like a decade now. And the old search ability was pretty awful. While the new forum has a pretty good internal search the new content sites don't really. It takes experts in search algorithms to write good search engines. So that is no going to happen with a flat HTML archive site. It's flat HTML. You can dynamic search on a non-dynamic site. That pretty much requires a database.

Just back for a quickie:

Just encountered a newbie on the "Art of Modeling" Fb blog site. He had a lot of questions regarding the up armored cab on the HEMTT. I linked him and his other followers to one of my HEMTT threads on what will soon be the archived data.

Also suggested he search "HEMTT" on the Armorama database as I know there to be A LOT of other related data available there. (Thanks Gino!)

So I will now point out that the existing format data is a great recruitment tool to gather in new members to the Armorama website.

(Yeah, we told them the same thing about the old Patton Museum at Ft. Knox - great Army recruitment tool; very popular and located close to a major population center. But they shut that down anyway, spent millions $$$ to relocate it and now it's behind closed doors, out of sight at Benning.)

Sorry if this sounds rude but please insert "HERE" an appropriate derogatory comment that might represent my opinion of the intelligence of both the government's move AND of yours!

I don't need to turn to derogatory comments to express my opinion
