New Site - To do's, wants and problems

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by Good CO, Jul 5, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Obviously there is a lot to do to make it feel like home. Some of the things on the cards are:

    • Last 50 list
    • ARRSEPedia to get updated look and header links corrected
    • Completion of user group / rank set up. 3RTR, Longdon bar etc still not done.
    • Return of the ranks for donors - you helped pay for this so you should at least get some recognition!
    • More recent posts on front page
    • Import of watched forums / topics.
    • Track down a couple of hidden forums that shouldn't be - eg. Junior ranks
    • Copy across the missing smilies
    More major and for attention after the initial pain is over:

    • We now have no gallery and it may be some months before we get this.
    • No Google maps
    • No Jokes
    • No Quotes
    Please give it a day or so before flagging up small problems. It'll be firefighting only until Wednesday.
