  1. The forum is now integrated with Giphy. Hit the GIF button in the editor and you will see options to post Gifs.
  2. I know I don't post much here. I typically lurk in the background and just make sure the place doesn't catch on fire (Mike's words). However, I'm banging my head against the wall on this one. So I'm setting up Google Suite for a business. I want to use custom URLs for the common applications for employees to login. Instead of some ugly URL for email, for example, I want to be able to use mail.somedomain.com and calendar.somedomain.com for the calendar. Get this shit though. If you are using an SSL certificate... you know those things that Google flipped out about and made everyone migrate to... you can't do it (unless there is some magic fucking trick to make it happen I am not aware of). That's right. The redirect from HTTP to HTTPS mucks it all up. Unreal. EDIT: Damnit. See I was so ticked off I forgot to ask my question. Does anyone know if I can add a second domain and run everything through that? I.E. If the business is somedomain.com, can I setup somedomain.net and verify it, use mail.somedomain.net for users to login at, but have the somedomain.com email run through there? Just would like to know before I put in the effort of tossing a new domain on a host, getting the nameservers set up, verifying it, and then finding out it doesn't work. Thanks
  3. We were long overdue for an update to a post Mike made a couple of years ago about some of the common forum features. The platform the forum runs on has gone through several updates since then with some new features and new locations of old features. You can read the updated post here: Forum Features. Who knows? You might just learn something.
  4. I updated this quick little guide on how to use some of the more common forum features that you may find useful as the forum platform has gone through several updates since the original post was made. Please use the "Like This" button when you want to thank someone for a post. Do not clutter up a thread with Thanks! Great Post! Good information. kind of posts. The forum gives you several different options to react to posts by other members. Just hover over the heart shaped button you will find in the bottom right corner of every post. When you hover over it, you will see a list of options including Like, Thanks, Haha, Confused, and Sad. Now if you have something specific you want to mention about the post and thank the poster for, by all means, do so. Otherwise, just use the reaction options provided. If you want to quote multiple posts from the same thread, use the multiquote button to do so in one post. In the bottom left of each post you will see a link that says Quote. To the left of that is a box with a plus sign in it. Click on that for each post you would like to quote. Another option the forum provides for quoting a message is to highlight text in a post and you will see a pop message asking if you would like to quote that text. If you want to find other posts of a particular user, visit their profile page by clicking on their username. Then click on the button that says See their activity. You will see a new menu appear on the left side of the screen. Click on the Posts button for all of their posts or on the Topics button to just see threads they have started. You have several options for how you view the forum: Table (which is the default setting), Grid, and Fluid. You will see these options at the top of the forum and can switch between them at anytime. If you find a particular thread useful or interesting and would like to be notified when others post in the thread, there is a Follow button at the top right of the screen when you open the thread. You will several options for how often you would like to be notified when new content is posted, including immediately, daily, and weekly. You will be emailed a notification when others have posted replies. This feature can be especially useful if you post a question and would like to be notified when someone answers your question. You can stop following a topic by clicking on the same button again. Edit your account settings by clicking on your name at the top right of the screen and selecting the Account Settings option. This is where you would change things like contact information, your forum signature, and notification options. If you would like to change your forum signature, select "Signature" on the left hand column menu after you have picked Account Settings. Please be sure to read our rules on forum signatures. To edit your profile, click on Profile from that same drop down menu and then select Edit Profile in the top right corner of your profile. If you try to read a forum thread and are greeted by this message... ...it is because there are private areas of the forum reserved for those who have joined the Spartan Inner Circle Membership. All members are welcome to join. You can learn more about the Spartan Inner Circle here. You can also join at any time by clicking on the "Store" menu option at the top of the forum and selecting the membership. These are many of the basic functions of the forum that we hope will improve your experience here. I'll post more as they are added or that I think members will find useful.
  5. The entire site has switched over to HTTPS today. I could not take looking at that unsecured notification in the browser any longer, and Mike said as long as I don't "$%#& up the whole forum, go ahead and do it." I'm doing some spot checking. Everything seems to be working okay, but if you find any broken links or other problems, please either post them here or submit a ticket. Thanks, Ash
  6. Hang-gliding while drinking beer and you have a deal.
  7. Everyone in the affected area, please stay safe.
  8. We have been internally messing around with this club option a bit, and frankly it is just way too cool not to put to use. So we are going to open it up to any members that want to start a club. The topics have to be related to online or offline marketing. No clubs about flying kites or how much you love cats, although Mike insists that if someone wants to start a beer lovers club he would probably approve it. If you have ever wanted to run your own private forum or membership site without all the hassles of setting up a private forum or membership site, this is for you. A few things. All new clubs must be approved by myself or Mike. When you go to the club page, you will enter in a little bit of information, and then it will go into a queue for approval. Send Mike or me a PM letting us know that you want to start the club and give us a small summary of what your plans are for it. You can have a completely public club where anyone can join and participate, an open club where anyone can view inside but must join to participate, a closed club where everyone can see that the club exists and who is in it but only members can view and participate, or a totally private club which only members would know exists. You can drive membership to your club however you wish. You can even charge for membership if you want to. That is up to you. We will give you a free listing in the Special Offers section if you want one to help drive membership. Moderation of your club will be left up to you and any additional moderators you choose to appoint. We will only step in if there is an issue with promoting violence, hate, etc. All of this is free. We are not charging for the clubs. Also if you have an idea for a club but just want to know a little more about the features and how the clubs work, send a PM to Mike or myself and we will be glad to help. Have a great weekend! Ash
  9. I'm going to go ahead and shut this thread down. Don't worry. The insults have not gone unnoticed, but considering the source, they are not worth worrying about.
  10. If you are going to constantly poke at people and try to shove things in their face when you know they don't want to hear about it and don't believe in, please don't post. If you are going to post "evidence" and "proof" full of gigantic holes that require huge leaps of faith to believe in and are going to get upset and take it personally when others are not willing to take that leap with you, please don't post. If you are going to bash others and then get upset when they return in kind, please don't post.
  11. No. You are not clever enough to touch a nerve. It was removed because you made a reference to members receiving explosive packages in the mail from a popular terrorist organization which is completely inappropriate.
  12. Fixed this. Gravatars were not enabled. Also forum signatures are back on.
