  1. THE Boss (Car Talk)

    And adjusting the points. . .
  2. THE Boss (Car Talk)

    I built this 1971 Boss 351 motor back in 1997 for one of my Mustangs and changed it to a different motor and then another, etc.   I just dug it out from the corner and it looks clean for sitting for close to 20-years.  It's a pretty nice engine that revs nicely for its vintage, especially when mated to a four speed (all Boss Mustangs were four speed manuals) and a Detroit Locker with 4.30 axle gears. I love the new muscle cars: Camaro, Challenger, Mustang but there's quite nothing like an old muscle car.
  3. "Flag as spammer" a dangerous tool!

    We set our forums to hide content only and never delete. We strictly disallow any deletion.  It's not we don't trust moderators, rather, what if someone gets ahold of a moderator's password = trouble.
  4. Thank you IPS Inc.

    Well stated
  5. Who flagged a user as spammer?

    excellent suggestion
  6. IPS Licence HTTP HTTPS

    I'm in this camp - we're going to start upgrading sites to 4.whatever next week one by one.  We're a mess right now.
  7. bring back old good support

    Quite frankly, the addons (hooks, etc.) have been the root cause for MANY of the problems with my board that I've filed tickets for.  Having been on warranty side of an auto company, root causes are hard to find because of mods, tunes, version changes and the like - it's very similar.  Moreover, the investigative part in solving problems consumers A LOT of time and resources. . .it ties staff down. With that being said, I've always found IPS to be quick and professional in solving my blunders. Customer service is never an easy proposition.
  8. Agree. You simply cannot keep incorporating and supporting legacy environments forever.  Now that SYNC3 is out, I've already forgotten about the previous versions.
  9. bring back old good support

    I plan on upgrading some sites to 4.X soon and will create a mirror site to see how it all works out to avoid/address problems as they arise. I've been putting in support tickets since 2005 and have never had a bad experience with their support.
  10. Easy enough - it just took me a few tries to figure it out.  Maybe if the box said "click to delete" or something, it would be super easy for people to figure out.
  11. Excellent.  Although, I've already figured out this one
  12. What is the point of activity stream?

    I'm in Detroit and hit the auto show circuit hard.  The big problem that I have with the gallery and this is a little off topic, is that you can't edit all of your uploaded photos on one page like in 3.4.  Hence, the cut/paste speed is no longer available.
  13. I think the new editor offers more functionality than the previous one and it seems more adaptable.  The only problem that I've had was figuring out how to delete a quote box when I decided not to quote someone's post. . .I'm a little slow.  
  14. is it set by default with "one e-mail per day with all new content from that day?"
  15. What happened to Members List?

    I might be missing something here, so please correct me if so. In 3.4, I can search for members, which are in a specific field.  Can 4.1 do this? I can also search for members with a certain user group in 3.4. When I search within 4.1 to see who is what user group, in this example, Contributors, here's what the results return: In other words, you can't seem to search who is in what user group in 4.1.  From several searches that I performed, you must enter a search term.  What am I missing here on how to use the member search functionality?
