Whatever it is, if you feel we're missing it and you want it, suggest it!

Look forward to any suggestions.

Well Mark... I do have an idea.. maybe it has been brought up before.. maybe not. It involves some people you know

How about a forum for:

Ask Bob & Rick:

That would give them some more interaction with the members and I know many have questions for them on how they built this or that, a jig etc. Just an idea ..

Great idea Corey, of course before this gets approved I'll have to speak with Bob and Rick, we'll see what they say. Thanks for the suggestion

Of course you would have to ask bud... but who better to ask Of course we know that Rick would have to speak for Bob as he doesn't like these computers much!

Hi Mark

I would like to see " Latest Threads " go to 10 (listed) I know you can use TODAYS POSTS item ,plus a way for NEW nembers to find the post they made , (like new members posting in the last 20 days) a sub under Introductions , right on the MAIN page, most members know how to find posting but new members don't just a way to get them to come back... , most like to read the post they made or look at others so they know what to post.

The other day, I wanted to quickly send a PM to a Buddy.
I went to my Buddy List, found my Buddy, & had no way of easily getting to his Profile!
I had to look elsewhere to get it...

Did not make any sense to me... Why have a Buddy List if you can't USE it?!

A simple link to their Profiles would have solved the problem.

Thank you...

Have Fun,
Joe

Sounds good, that can easily be setup.

@Joe Lyddon: Visit the "Members List" it is at the top of every page, there is a search function, type in the username and it should bring up a direct link to the profile.

I ended up going here... found the name and clicked it... What I should have been able to do from the Buddy List... yes?

I agree 100%... except for one thing...

... make it the last 20-25 instead of just 10...

Have Fun,

I believe that 20-25 would be much to large vertically, 10 should be enough.
