Welcome To The New SHR VIP Garage Gang II Website

Post by Admin1 » Fri Dec 30, 2016 4:10 pm

After reading earlier today that SHR will be shutting down the VIP GG forum, I quickly built this replacement website. It uses a newer version of the phpBB forum software than the SHR website. Some things will look familiar, other things will look different. We'll all learn together, so please be patient with me.

The biggest advantage to paying for premium is the 1st item below - "Photo uploads and attachments for your users" since uploads require disk storage space which phpBB has to pay for. Still $49 a year is pretty cheap. Let's see how many users actually sign up before spending any money.

Benefits of Paying For Premium

- Photo uploads and attachments for your users
- Remove any and all advertisements from your forum
- Never have your forum removed for inactivity
- No rules requiring publicly viewable content, can show all or none of your forum to guests
- Display your own advertisements in the header, footer, and after the first post in every topic
- Change the copyright message at the bottom of your forum
- Download backups of your forum on demand, and generate local backups that you can restore from
- Access To A Special Support Forum Just For Premium Members
- Earn Some Good Karma Knowing You're Helping To Support Our Great Service!

The cost is just $5/mo or $49/yr. Thank you in advance for upgrading to a premium forum, we very much appreciate having the opportunity to host your forum.

I changed the forum settings so you can use the same 120px X 120px avatar that you used on the SHR website.

Is "bookmark topic" the same as what I would call "follow a topic"....like what so many of us wanted to do

Do you think there is a possibility of a thumbs up or down to particular post that we will be able to click on at some point?

Just a couple of my thoughts at the moment.....

I'm not sure, it's new to me too. There's some good basic information in the FAQ (upper right corner of every page next to Members).

Here's what it says;

What is the difference between bookmarking and subscribing?
Bookmarking in phpBB3 is much like bookmarking in your web browser. You aren?t alerted when there?s an update, but you can come back to the topic later. Subscribing, however, will notify you when there is an update to the topic or forum on the board via your preferred method or methods.

Hi Garage Gang!

I am here ;) I haven't been on the old site much since my surgery (can't be on too much or long as it hurts my neck yet) so I missed the first day of the announcement of SHR shutting down the site :cry: Thanks HH for setting up this new site! :D
