With the housing maps...you can kind of do that already via the pinpoint map on the housing reviews...there are two maps...check it out and see if that is similar to what you looking for.

Also with the member of the month, that is fine if you would like to gather the information together and do that. Where would you like to see this information on the website? In a forum or somewhere else.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Suggestions, eh? Well, I notice that ya'll had a chatroom, but that it was down...I don't think it would be hard to get an IRC chat going (Finally, a non-aviation acronym!) and we could use it as a live chat, but that's just me...I can build one in a few minutes, just let me know if you want to do this or something?

OH
The new hire page needs to have its own button or banner in bold at the top of the site splash page. As of right now it is buried under the articles tab.

I don't think many people would know about I.R.C. Cthuhlhu.

Signatures would really help with the usability of the site. Being able to list (text-only) your dates of the hiring process (I see people constantly having to repost this when asked questions), example:


TOL: 2/24
CIL: 3/4
MMPI: 3/7
FOL: 3/15

I tried to set up a signature for that very reason the other day but apparently you need permissions or something... seemed goofy to me

Signatures require one of the paid memberships, which I think is stupid but I don't make the rules

Agreed, signatures are just a part of forums. I could see putting a character limit or not permitting images.

I guess if I really cared that much I could change my avatar thingy to a little jpeg with basic dates on it:

TOL 3/2
CIL 3/17
MMPI 3/21

etc.
