First let me make sure everyone knows that the new features I add don't have to be used. ..
They don't make anything slower on the forum and they won't get in the way of anything you normally do on the forum.
They just add a little more usability to the forum for those that want it...
1. I added a way to make personal notes.... Have you ever wanted to keep track of your oil and service records on your slingshot... Or just make some personal notes about anything that you wanted to remember......
Click on your name in the top left corner...... Under Personal Notes section click NOTES. You will see the notes area. You can make colored labels to organize different subjects.
2. The next feature I added was the ability to have a friends list. Before you ask...I know that everyone here should be friends with everyone here. However some members do actually login to see if a particular member is online. They may just want to send them a message real fast. This feature lets you add people to a friend list and lets you see how many are online just by glancing up at the top of the screen. When you click on it the drop down it will show you who is online. And if you let your mouse hover over the name of the member it will give you their info box and let you send them a message.
THERE IS ONE CATCH..... Both members have to be friends. I can't just add a member and then sit back and watch when they come online. I mean I could,... But that would be weird.
Basically following a member makes them a friend. You just have to click on their name and then click + on the bar.
If you will notice there is a little slide button (circled above in red). If you slide that to the on position it will cause a bar to be displayed on every page. It will show the avatar of your friends that are online...
Look below at the picture and you can see how the bar will look. It can be turned on an off.
