Any chance we can make this Technial Support forum & Suggestions forum?

After all I have a suggestion. To make the Daily Wire accessible to a wider audience we could have a Hobbies forum.

In that Hobbies forum JJ could put a step by step guide for those that wish to trade in foreign exchange for example. Or at least how he does it.

I'll rename this forum, great idea.

As for adding to the lineup - it's something I want to do, but I'm wary about creating too many areas on the board when we do not have so many active members. I'm running a heavy Google advertising campaign at the moment, to hopefully recruit some fresh faces which will hopefully bear fruit over the next week or so. Tell you what - when we hit 50 registered members, I'll create the hobby forum. Halfway there already :)

Suits me. I was just thinking to make it accessible to a wider audience, rather than limit it to a political debate site, it could be a political social group site. More person friendly.

You're right in that we should have a broader audience than just the politically engaged. I'm just not sure about the best way to go about it though. What I'll do is create another sub-forum for other topics including:

  • General Discussion
  • Books
  • Hobbies
  • Movies & TV Shows
  • Sports & Cars

How does that sound? If you can think of anything else that would be appropriate let me know.

Not much you can do other than that.
Then let it evolve naturally. I suspect many more people will find the site through the Hobbies forums than looking directly for political discussion.
Sort of like the Lounges over at Whirlpool.

I'm uncertain if General Discussion is necessary. You need a wider response for that one. Also you don't want general chat to take away from the idea behind the site.

Youtube embedding does not seem to work anymore with new youtube URL's that don't have a youtube.com domain.

eg. >>> (media)http://youtu.be/_xInYUUOyBg(/media) <<<< (with correct brackets) gives the following:

http://youtu.be/_xInYUUOyBg

Any simple solution?

Turn the lights off and indulge in a spot of yoga with Miranda Kerr? E)



But yeah, I've encountered the same problem.

Had it again today and played around with the URL stripping off some of the unimportant stuff, but no luck.

Resolved this time on the video's youtube page by clicking "share", ticking the "long link" box and then using the newly generated URL.

I'm still thinking there's some element of hit and miss but here it is working again. Problem's got to be all in the URL so to speak with the forum's IP.Board software only recognising "classic" Youtube URLs.
