  • Thanks: You can thank someone for a post by clicking on the "thumbs up" icon in the top right corner of the post.
  • Topic Prefixes (required in some forums): with these you can select the type of topic you're posting:
    • Helpful for forumites: easier to find the right thread
    • Helpful for the site and its moderators:
      • To link to certain types of posts from the pedal pages (for example: to review threads from the review section)
      • If the forum becomes too big/busy certain types of threads can be moved to subforums.
  • Tapatalk support: You can use the Tapatalk apps (for iOS and Android) to connect to the forum. You won't see the awesome auctions on the left though :mrgreen:
  • myFXDB: with your forum account you can also use myFXDB to keep your own EffectsDatabase: "want" list, "have" list, "selling" list and "had" list. There's also an overview of all pedals that are being sold or that are wanted by someone and a page with results for your "want" list from eBay and more than 30 other auction/classifieds sites (if you added any pedals to the want list).

Do you know if there any way to change username? On the control panel it says something like 'you must enter your password to change user name'? I know it seems a funny thing to do, wouldn't mind reverting to the same name I have on other forums though as there are so many familiar names here!

I turned off that option, but I'll turn it on again (try in a few minutes :))

Bart,
I can't find any option to remove the Ebay sidebars (forum and website)... That would really help me :)

Can't find a "bug report forum" for the http://www.effectsdatabase.com/ website ... ?

Loading the front page takes 45.44seconds here, with a total of 442 HTTP-requests!!! :shock:

You might want to rethink some elements before Google starts to give out penalties and kicks you down in the index.

Since a few days there's something wrong with the shared hosting where the images are, sometimes it's ok, sometimes is veeeeeeery slow :-/

My provider was just taken over by another one, I hope this is not a sign of their service...

Is seems the lik.php script scr#ws everything up. Maybe consider to drop them for old givaways? 442 HTTP requests are killing for any host.
