    AO, What is Left to DO??

    All,

    Ok we finally have the new look, updated software we are running on a new server and CMS is in the works. What more do we have to do?

    Thanks to everyone pitching in, we have a chunk of money left over. Once you say we are done, I will donate it as promised to the Paintball Scholarship Fund. I am open to other suggestions for what to do with the money if everyone agrees.

    Please outline any more to-do's

    TK

    First, thank you Bunny (and everyone helping behind the scenes) for making AO look like AO again. Much easier on my eyes to read it.

    TK, I admire the sentiment of donating the surplus to charity, but I did just have an idea come to mind. Put the excess into some zero risk investment vehicle - effecitvely in trust - to cover the cost of doing this all over again in a few years when tehcnology forces the issue again, or if nothing else, to pay for the recurring maintenance/operating costs of AO? If the point was to keep AO solvent as long as possible?

    Cheers!

    Scholarships are cool and all, but the heart and soul of AO is how we Meet. Throw an AO day somewhere.

    Hook Bunny up with a autograped marker for all the work he did. Well deserved. Do some contestes for some autographed t-shirts or something like that.

    The only thing I can think of is the iTrader plug-in.

    Yeah - I was thinking that as well. Good thing is, that's free.

    Now, I thought we were going to put some of the $ towards the AGD website and store. Is that no longer the case?

    Just don't delete the old feedback, or find a way to convert it.

    I now have (1) feedback on AOG, (2) on Custom Cockers and (4) on PBN because of the iTrader advent and subsequent disappearance of original feedback threads... It sucks to go from 100+ positive feedback with solid/positive commentary to almost no feedback (7) with a twitter sized blurb for each.

    I'm HAPPY that AO has traditional feedback.

    I don't really like the idea of an event or a scholarship, this is a better idea.

    The store as it turns out is going to stay as it is because it is on a different server and not in danger. I do want to refresh the AGD site but that is not a big deal.

    Not sure if I missed it, but the old guides would be nice (ie. Level 10, etc.)

    We'll work on that. I'll see if I have some time to work on the CMS with Bunny this week. I'd love to get it to the point where all the pertinent info about AGD products is in one place.

    Why not use the money to upgrade the store ?
    I thought that was the plan from the beginning.
    Add a shopping cart, and the ability to pay with Paypal.
    In other words make it more user friendly.
    Shouldn't have to call to order things.

    AO members raised the funds so lets keep the extra funds in house instead of letting go somewhere else.

    I think that there should be a button linking to the AGD Store and website placed somewhere here prominently.

    Also - most of the manuals are on the AGD site, links to them would be helpful to people as well IMO.

    There's a mod for Vbulletin (need to go find it) that lets you add buttons to the menu bar - like the Forum & What's New? ones.

    Stay tuned.

    It seems like the header sits crammed up on the top of the page, a small margin above might look better..

    Here's the mod for the additional click tabs along the top. If the mods want to install that, I can walk them through setup.

    Here's a Spam firewall/post spam mod. It's pretty robust - blocking IP addresses it has on file as well as using the AKISMET API for spam detection.

    It can actually be done in the Navigation Manager in Settings.

    I like the quick tech tab. That could be handy at times.

    Just noticed the tabs. Very nice!

    How about a quick-reply box on threads now?
