There's some contrast issues with the new theme and some displays.  Some links (like next page, etc.) are a blue shade, on a blue background, which is frowned upon in the HCI field.

Changed a few things today.  Most noticeably the poll on the front page.

If you run into something wonky, let me know.

You can post Youtube videos now.


Just put in the "url" link ie, something like http://youtube_dot_com/watch?v=ZFQyYOtJ_yA
but of course use web standard link syntax.

Updated the links for the point standings.

Not that we care about points.   ;D

Personal Messages:

if you are receiving PM notifications via email, then the email address sender is NOT the original member's address.  THAT email reply address goes to me (as admin).

If you want to talk via with a member, swap email addresses.


If you want to adjust your account to either get/don't get notes on having a new PM, go into Profile->Personal Message Options and change the option that says Notify by email every time you receive a personal message.  It looks like it defaults to receive.

yep, changed the forums a bit in honour of the start of the indoor season.

the features you are used to will still be available, just maybe in a different spot.

Custom avatars:


Some have asked about making their own images on the site for their avatar (mines the cop car right now).


You have three options, the best is to upload the image from your hard drive to the server. You must have at least 5 posts to make the change (ie, be a member of the "forum rookie" group) and for security reasons that is not changing.

1 - get the image you want to be about 80x80px for dimensions. Current max is 150px either way.

2 - in the strip that reads in part "home, main irocc site, help, search", click on profile.

3 - click on "modify profile" then choose "forum profile".

4 - on that page there is the option to upload the image.

5 - done.

With the recent issues regarding one member's personal life, I've taken unusual measures.


One is to place a post off the front page, to the furtherest back page.  Its there in its unedited form for anyone who cares to look for it.  Second, I've reclaimed the password for an account that has been obviously compromised.


These forums need to be all-ages friendly and be primarily focused on RC racing.

I really like the new "random pics" thing on the right side of the main page.  Looks great!

Nice job Bruce!

A few spam bots have attached themselves to the forum in the last few days.  As a proactive step, I've increased the difficulty in registration by a notch.

I can manually register a legit account, if anyone has problems getting set up here.
