  1. Stage 1 is now complete with the forum powering the website from this stage onward. All the pages are now accessible from within the forum index - the right hand menu will grow slowly over the next days while I start converting content into the forum database. But please be aware that: *Over that time, users may experience difficulty accessing content *There may be layout issues with the new pages - I will be fixing these last *Some pages will still redirect to the old html based website - I know that this is confusing and I will be removing these links as fast as possible.
  2. I have been silently working on replacing all HTML pages with integrated content that is kept in the forum database with everything else. I have reached a stage now where users will start seeing changes on the front-end. But there are 2 sides to this and I want to give a quick outline what is going to happen. I will slowly start switching off HTML pages that are being replaced with new versions. As a result links in some locations will be dead. The old index page will not receive further updates The frequency HTML pages will not be updated anymore and will also be deleted There will be an extended downtime of Scanner Australia forums/content pages while so issues are worked out and features are finalised. I`ll add some more info soon
  3. However I have to go through the complex task to set all the permissions. So at this stage there is only 1 album (Digital Scanner Setups) and only Lifetime subscribers are able to create their own private and public albums. Over the coming days I`ll be working on setting everything up as it should be. PS to create your own album, go to My Settings > Gallery
  4. Yes next week you will be testing this brand new concept car design by Scanner Australia. We`ll drive you into a brick wall :) If you survive you`ll get a second subscription!
  5. Ok i'll check it out when i get home. Some permission isnt right
  6. Congrats :)
  7. There may be slight interruptions during the testing process - posts and topics will not be affected by this. You feedback on new skins is appreciated.
  8. I made some modifications. *Left menu has more items now *All forums are listed again in 1 table (good for small res screens). *Right Sidebar is back - can be removed via the small X in the top right corner. More to come
  9. I "think" it should be available this afternoon some time. Just keep an eye out on the left hand menu. Once its active the link will be there.
  10. No they have to be bought. This was only $17 so it was ok. I always liked the look of whirlpool - I will be customizing it myself over the coming weeks as well. I will also make 2 more skin sets available people can choose if they dont like this. Re professional blue/red I never really liked these - I had a look at them and they had nothing special about them.
  11. It`ll still be a bit. Just need to mod some files first.
  12. I am about to invest in member gallery package which allows users to create their own photo albums (either public or private). Also the stream is coming back together with the release of the streaming application. So lots of stuff happening soon.
  13. Nice set up! I wish I could grab a Icom IC 7000 - but thats not possible for me at the moment. Those photos will be nice for the upcoming photo gallery here on the forums.
  14. Im about to buy a new skin for these forums and came across this: http://www.skinbox.net/skins/ipb-3-0-skins/professional-skins/surface/110 Looks a bit like whirlpool but I still like the unique look. Feedback? Good/Bad?
  15. Due to the extremely bad member-to-post ratio, I have decided to turn off free registrations. Users can still subscribe but wont be able to access the forums for free. Its unfortunate that I have to do this but I somehow dont want to see more members than posts. If you know anyone that would like to join, email me and I`ll manually create a new account.
  16. I dont mind turning registrations off for a year if this is what it comes to - nothing else has worked after all.
  17. The registration system is broken with these specific settings. So I have reversed the changes until I have time to work things out.
  18. Thanks to the generous donations that have come in over the last 3 weeks, I was able to repair the servers hardware. I am taking the opportunity to update the software packages on that machine. The stream will be back online soon.
  19. Because it will disappear very soon. Its been unused and it takes up resources therefore we will remove it.
  20. Yeah let me know - This design is likely to change since I am still testing others on the non-live site.
  21. I just want to thank those people that have been generous enough to donate to me. Even though I am still some amount away from buying the hardware, I certainly am closer to the goal now. I am glad to see that some people care still! Thanks
  22. Yeah not much interest in scanning it seems.
  23. We have had a hardware failure on the main home server that was used to stream the audio. Until we get the donations together to repair the damage (around$120 left) this stream will be off. Thanks
  24. Ok even though I feel like I am talking to myself, the stream will now be cancelled until the funds are collected to help with the hardware replacement. Not a big deal for me personally since I can listen to the scanner from my desk ;) Some donations have already come in - thank you - I hope that I get some more together to make the repairs happen.
  25. Hi mate, The stream usually gets 50 hits a day with max 5 - 10 listeners at a time. Is it feasible to keep it running? Maybe, maybe not. Its really up to the wider community whether they want it to continue running or not. Its not going to cost thousands to fix - but just about $150 in parts. This $150 is above the budget I am willing to spend on the website as the running cost is enough to give me a headache already. ps I am sick today so I probably will be even less on - cant be bothered sitting at the computer. EDIT: I should also explain that the running cost is next to nothing (cost of electricity). But a power surge fried the motherboard, power supply and maybe HDD (yet to be confirmed). This is what people can donate for.
