    Ideas to improve AO

    This is probably not my spot to ask. I am going to willingly acknowledge that and ask anyways.

    I believe it would be in error to think that all of AOs issues are technical in nature and the "return the promised land" will happen as soon as the sight is updated with no further dicussion of other changes.

    So I feel it appropriate to ask what changes others feel would help AO going forward.

    I would like a archive of "how to" like for the pnuemag and such.

    have a spot (like in the store) where all the manuals and diagrams are accessible

    CHAT

    Yep!

    It would be great if "the new AO" is accessible via Tapatalk and/or Forumrunner for all of our fancy tablets and smartphones. This would be a huge step.

    And I'm sure we could need a few more MODs to support the Beemer.

    Wouldn't this have been smarter to ask BEFORE everyone started throwing money at the project?

    This is easy to do. (And it would allow Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail addresses again.)

    Have the admins or whomever follow the directions in the link below:

    This works WONDERS on my site and I NEVER got a Spam email address.

    How about a shopping cart for the AGD store so you can click "buy" and pay immediately with Paypal ?

    Luke's comment about the look of new forums made me think of one request:

    Please somehow avoid what seems to be the flavor of the month regarding look/style in having solid, bright white backgrounds with black text. The fact that AO has a grey background, colored text in many places, and light blue backgrounds in the text blocks means that I can comfortably read it. All of the "new" web forums I have encountered give me a headache after less than five minutes of struggling to look at them.

    Thanks for listening, and thank you to everyone who contributed to keeping the lights on.

    A new, cooler calendar!

    We have a 2006 calendar that goes up to Jan 2007. I say we add a 2013 calendar & maybe a 2014. I would also like pictures of scantily clad women straddling much larger than real life Automags, with big live lions on either side for each month.

    The ban list - lets consider getting rid of it and "welcoming everyone back" so to speak. Wipe the slate clean and start over.

    I know when it was decided to publically post the ban list it was needed. There were concerns about how it made people feel and if it was welcoming but it was needed. Now it is virtually unused. Its necessity is in question.

    What ban list? We don't see a ban list any where.

    Really? Any one else with issues?

    There is only one sig per page now so see my post 114 above. I did an edit to my sig with two lines of text plus my image.
