Just a short note about the recent 43rumors website improvements.
Some of you are might experiencing a 43rumors layout problem. To fix that just reload the website or clear the browsers cache. The layout problem is here because last week we worked on the theme to fix some issues we had with the new IE9 browser. Reload the page and everything will be fine!
There ar e a few things I worked on the last couple of weeks:
1) Member can now edit their own comments. This was a one of the features you asked me to implement.
2) I now added a basic forum. I am going to work on it to allow image posting and other features. The main reason why I added a forum is that some of our articles are source of very interesting discussions. The problem is that after 2-3 days the article gets lost on page two or three of the website. This because I do post 3-4 articles every day. The coolest thing about the forum is that comment system and forum are synchronized. That means that if you write a comment below a post it will be also displayed inside the forum. And inside that forum the latest comment is always on top. This should make you easy to follow interesting discussions. The forum is available here: http://www.43rumors.com/forums/. You need to be a member to post inside the forum.
1) We are currently developing an advanced cache systems + Ajax loaded content. This should speed up the website by a 25-40%.
2) A reader images pool. I would love if members could share their best images on 43rumors.
The meeting idea:
Starting from May I will travel a lot because of work. I have planned trips to Antwerp (my second home), Barcelona, New York City and Montpelier. I thought it could be an idea to organize some meetings in a nice informal place like pubs :) We can talk about the website about m43 and about whatever else you want. Let me know if you are interested. I am in Antwerp from 17 to 28 April.
