    Can we change the time allowed for editing our posts? Now sure what the limit is now but went back less than 10 minutes later to add a sentence and got the edit notice....

    I didnt like one thing...the name of the thread is in the http address...for example...I love the thread "http://bolttalk.com/chargers-fan-forum/22498-charger-girls-halloween-pics-2009-a-11.html" but how I access most of the time at work the firewall block because of the word "girls" in the link...

    There is other words like: game, player, video...so a lot of thread will be blocked for me becasuse of the firewall of my work...

    If it could be fixed I appreciate.

    Thanks...

    I can definitely add some rounded edges in a few places. There is a pretty big button on the top and bottom of each forum to post a new thread.

    Unless it is in a white font on the white background...I am not seeing it. When you have a chance, let me know what I am missing. Thanks.

    Do you have a complete list of the words that are blocked? The URLs are going to remain in this format because it will generate more traffic at the end of the day with keywords in the title. I can however add some words to a "stop list" which will remove certain words from the URL, but at the end of the day that could hurt the site.

    Have you tried a proxy to access the site while you are at work?

    Please do try one of the free proxy servers that are out there to bypass your firewall.

    If I do that I could put my job in jeopardy...

    robdog, this is some words: game, player, girl...If you substitute "game" for "gam e" I think that it works...."player" for "play er" and "girl" for "gals" or "gir l"

    Thank you very much...

    It's directly above the date of birth (if you were looking from the left it's to the right of list subscriptions), there's a white box where you can type in what you want then click the save changes button on the bottom of the page. Hope that helps.

    Sadly, no. All I have above the date of birth fields is a button to change my password. I guess I will be a "Senior Member" a while longer.

    Don't know how to explain this, but I used to click on a button on the bottom to take me back to the top of the forum. Now I have to select from drop down and find what I want, or click on top to give me the upper forum.
    In example below. I used to get back to the one in red from just one click, to see the list of threads below. Know what I mean?

    You do not have a TOP button in your lower right corner of your screeen?
