Just a little housekeeping.

Hi all, just letting you know I've made a few changes to the site today and will probably make a few more minor changes in the coming days.

1. News articles should now have a 'last unread' button, the same as Forum topics (so you shouldn't really be able to tell the difference).

2. New forums created:
* 2015 season created
* 2014 moved to historic section
* Media board created (covers peoples comments over media coverage of the comp)
* St Kilda forum created under club boards
* TAC Cup forum moved to Other forums

3. The 'recent activity' column on the left now shows only the last 7 active topics and now contains a link at the bottom of the colum to show the next 8 to 25 most recent comments.

4. The news topics are being updated.

5. Any user can now add a new article. Robbo or myself will be able to publish it. Basically this means any VFA/VFL news article you submit will require:

Source (eg. The Port Phillip Leader)
Reporter (eg. Paul Amy)
URL Link (eg. paste website address)

First 3-5 paragraphs.

6. I'm hoping to get the audio/video/gallery areas up and running but that requires a bit of tweaking.

cheers,
David.

No dramas at all..

Re: Point 5, to add a news story, click on My Forum Topic, you will see a line up the top that says "Add Content" Click on that and you should get to choose if you are adding a forum topic or a news article.

Just a thought, how would people feel about allowing Facebook users to post here on the site? It would probably make for a host of new posters, but may result in a few clowns posting rubbish here too. The requirement to create an account probably helps serve as a bit of a filter.

The number of anonymous posters that visit this site is huge. It's a shame that they don't feel that they can or should contribute.. I'd love to see more of the ghosts that visit this site contributing to it!

Finally, what other features do you want to see here?

I would prefer the 'recent activity' column to be continuous. With the constant input (which is great) to the site, having only seven recent activities means searching back to see what I have missed.

Following on from my post about a lot of ghost / anonymous visitors to the site.

For the month of September to date there have been 45,451 individual page views. That's a lot!

wow - That's heaps!!! I didn't realize how popular this site is in terms of visits. I guess the goal now is to convert as many as possible of those that help make the 45k views to ACTIVE members.

37 times Grand finalists
16 times premiers
21 times runners up - THE MIGHTY BOROUGH!
