    Everything is looking pretty good. Now just need to catch a fish to so I have a photo to test out the upload capabilities.

    Thank you for the hard work.

    Hey, I was just going to say what Bandy said about the fish logo.
    A few things I really like are how I don't have to hit "post reply" or whatever- it ajust lets me type here in this box at the bottom. Unless that was already here and I don't seem to have noticed it ever, ha.
    And I also really really like how video links are laid out where you can see the video without having to open another window/tab- it just plays right there where it was posted (example, my Abel reels vid.).

    Good job!

    Also, I really like how in the classifieds you can sort the items by their pre-fix of "FS" "WTT", etc. Great idea!

    Jordan, it gets better than that. For most video sources (youtube, etc) you can simply copy / past in the page URL without having to worry about embed code. The forum does the rest.

    Code:

    Currently works for Dailymotion, Facebook, Liveleak, Metacafe, Vimeo & Youtube. I can add others later as needed.

    OMJ: What I just said is that something you don't care about is easier for people who care about crap like that.

    I wasn't too keen on the new page (although it's more simplistic), but then I saw I was awarded 4 trophies! I haven't had a trophy in a long time. Thanks Chris.

    Sorry ,but I liked the old site better.I amnot that computer savey so getting used to the new format is going to take me some time.I liked the photos that came up on the left and the adds Ithink this format looks plain .Just my two cents,probably worth less then that.

    I actually feel a little bit the same on that- I liked seeing the advertisements from our sponsors on the side, as well as the random little photo from the galleries that was in the top left corner.
    I feel there could be a little more in regards to the looks. In terms of the new functions and the way things are set up, this site is rockin hard...but I do miss the pics.
