@ Lindy. That's when I first started working for Shelby here in Michigan before being sent out west. I have never been to Milford, but it's supposed to be awesome. I owe a lot of money to U-Mich - they will probably never see it . Mott is a great facility - hope all is well with your visits there.
We do use the members list on a few dozen of our sites, but find the solution of adding a Nav tab OK for 4.0 and I've suggested this in another post as well. An option to sort posts by ascending or descending order in 4.0 would be nice though.
GREAT solution if you have pages. For those who do not though, you can still create a tab in the nav bar and link as I have suggested several posts back. Either way, I think there is a sound solution for this - no? Me too.
The members table, for the most part seems to work in search http://community.invisionpower.com/search/ I clicked on the members button and it offered the different member groups to search and other fields. I assume that it might also show custom fields in there too? I cannot really see where this is that different than what's in 3.4? If you need to create a members tab in navigation, can't you add a tab and link it to the members table: http://community.invisionpower.com/search/?type=core_members&group[__EMPTY]=__EMPTY&group=1
Yes, I am aware of that feature and it works for a particular post. It doesn't work well if you are reviewing numerous posts though. Let's say that we have a customer with a defective vehicle and he or she opens a topic and there are multiple replies that we are interested in looking at from a customer service perspective. Today, we'll communicate that we should look at post numbers 2, 6, 11 and 12. That's how it's easier.
I agree that the auto awards is lacking - reputation, topics started, total likes, etc. should be included in auto awarding. From what I understand, the auto award for gallery is awarded just for uploading one photo? It should be more configurable. The awards system is a good base system, but the auto award system needs some work, please.
