    I get recent activity alerts at the top of the page (not sure I actually requested updates on all of them, but certainly of interest) and email alerts on the expected threads. Thanks.

    Hi All:

    A few technical glitches with regards to my own permissions. We have updated some of the forum and media SW and rebooted a few times hopping to cure that one. I have reached a limit of 50 MB and no matter what we change, I am still locked. Without pic uploads, I cannot make News posts and there are a ton of them!

    You should be able to set admins to no limits.

    Hi Jay:

    Both Matthew and I were locked out of an Admin Control Panel function that allowed us to control upload volume. We could set it to unlimited but it was not taking. Within php, we both needed to be Super Admins which opened up that function. Just weird that Admin rights did not allow either of us to actually set it.

    Strange one and its fixed now.

    At top of CleanMPG page. Which is preferable to me, wouldn't want email, it'd be a deluge.

    But, it's really spotty, seems to miss a lot of threads, virtually all, if the criteria is that there's new posts in a thread of contributed to. Take this for example, just happened to notice it in "new replys", there's no alert.

    Hi Mendel:

    Sorry about that one. That is a Xenforo in-built miss and I am not sure we can do anything about it? I will speak with Matthew about it.

    How about adding Location and Drives under the Avatar so we can know where they live and what car they are talking about. I have added it to my info but it doesn't show.

    ^ Yes. They have this working with the same software at Priuschat. For now I cobbled mine, put in custom text.
