ADMIN - New "prefix" option - Tag your thread as "1966-1968" or "2007+"

As part of the new forum upgrade & server move I've created a new option to "prefix" or tag/label your threads by year. When you create a new thread you'll now need to chose between "1966-1968", "2007+" or "All Years"

That way everyone will be able to see right away when they look at the list of threads which focus on Classics vs. Late Models. If you select "All Years" then the thread won't have a tag at all.

I'm trying this rather than split the forums up into Classic & Late Models. And the reason I don't want to do that is there will be many threads (like show announcements, general tech, etc.) that aren't year specific and would cause confusion as to which forum they would go in.

I'm hoping this tagging feature will help keep the community together in one forum, but allow everyone to quickly identify discussions related to their specific year.

Yeah, yeah, Jon, you work hard on the upgrade, and here comes the whiners! LOL!!!

...I think that the inclusion of 1966 for the prefix will confuse people. I know that you're including the 1966-67 HCS, but overall, that will confuse people that aren't knowledgeabale of the early HCSs.

Could you do 1968 only, and then a tag for HCS only?

Just a thought..

and...somehow, on my Mac, the message area to type this message in is now only 1" wide. Kinda tight--ya think??

..thanks for everything,
Paul N.

Yeah, I debated about that myself. I changed it to just "1968" and then added a "1966-67 HCS". Hopefully that's not confusing to the 1968 HCS posters. We'll see how it goes and I can adjust as needed.

Paul, what browser are you using? I don't know anything 'bout 'dem Mac contraptions.

It's Internet Explorer 5.1
on my Mac G3 (B&W).

Antiquated, yes, but I'll be into Safari on the Mac Mini soon....

My friends say I'm ten years behind...a G3, and '94 Mustang GT. LOL!!

This typing in a narrow alleyway is weird. Three syllabal words are a nightmare.

Thanks for the prefix change. Works for me.

Cool idea. Hope it works out.
