Just wanted to remind everyone that Steelers Fever has an alternate theme.

Just navigate to the lower bottom-left hand corner of the forum, and you'll see something that says -- Default Style in a drop-box.

Click on that and select our DARK theme for a change in scenery!

This is something I implemented long ago, but a lot of members aren't aware of it.

It should be the new default.

I'd actually like to ask your opinions on some of the changes.

We've added an Arcade, a "Thank You" system for forum posts, a donation system, a new alternate theme, Tapatalk for our smart phone users, Member of The Week and some new message alert systems, including a easier to see private message alert and integrated avatar on login, right there in the top-right hand corner.

Which of these features to you appreciate the most, and what would you like to see added?

It's a very cool design, and I like it, however, the "contributor" tags don't want to show up under it for some reason. :doh:

Once I figure that out, i'll feel a lot better about it.

All are good additions. The private message alert doesn't work well for me, but that could be because I'm on a Mac. Otherwise, good job, Bagz!

All the private message alert does is posts a "New Private Message" link in red just above the forums when you have a new message, rather than the small alert in the top-right corner of the forum.

For some Operating systems the alert will blink, and for other it'll just be a red link.

I like the "thank you" system and Member of the Week. The Dark theme would take getting use to. Good job Bayz!

Both the "Thank You" and "Member of The Week" plugins are designed to bring the community closer, and I believe that's exactly what it's done. :drink:

hitting each other with foam baseball bat's will do that as well! It get's a lot of pent-up anger and frustration out.

Bayz, love the adjustments and time you have dedicated. Is there anyway to have say like a trivia contest with Steelers history? Or possibly a "Ultimate Fan of the Week or Month" based on pics submitted? Once again you do great things, anything you come up with is definitely a bonus and to get more Steeler faithful here is a plus.

Bayz,
You have made this site awesome. Good job, man.

I love the "Thank" function. It really allows people to say "great post" without "wasting" time to reply with only a smiley-face icon. And, as you said, it makes people get closer... like a pat on the back.

Along those same lines, I would suggest a "Buddha Bus" button, where one pushes it to not just say "Thank you", but to say "That was effing funny!!!" (Because, he's clearly one of the funniest dudes on here.) Once a user pushes the icon, a monkey would urinate on the post, while laughing.

Anyway, all jokes aside, Bayz, you rock!!!

Stop it. You're embarrassing me. :blush:

This site is just getting better and better. :hatsoff:

From the added features :popcorn:, to the posts :blah:, and mainly to the "many characters" :banana: who visit regularly, it all makes for a fun experience and adds fuel to our passion for the Steelers. :tt04:

Whenever I visit I know I'm going to get a lot of info, think, laugh, and agree/disagree with somebody. :thumbsup:

I noticed a few trivia requests, and that's something I can definitely look into to.

Couldn't really find any VBulletin plugins for trivia, however, there's plenty of script on the internet for website-trivia. I'll see what I can put together.

This trivia isn't an "on-site" trivia, rather just a redirect. It's all I could come up with thus far, as there's no actively updated plugins for VB 3.8 trivia.
