Good evening everyone,

I spent tonight revamping the user profile page, cleaning up the user interface, and adding support for a great many social profiles.

Here's a side by side comparison of the old user page versus the new one:

Old and Busted: New Hotness:
Old User Profile Screen New User Profile Screen

This new profile also lists buddylist status, and provides a link to view the user's blog entries.

To edit your user settings and add your own social networking screen names, make sure you are logged in, and click the menu item called Edit My Profile.

While I was playing around, I also added a new screen for viewing all blog entries, as well as for viewing entries by tag.

Have a look around, and let me know what you think of the new changes. As always, please reply with any questions or comments you might have. Thanks!

What: Dinner and Fursuit Bowling in Delaware!

When: Saturday April 24th, 7:00 PM - 12:00 PM

Where: East King Buffet, AMF Price Lanes

RSVP: http://furbowl.surple.com

Details: We'll be meeting at the East King Buffet which is along Kirkwood Highway, at 7:00PM. We'll head inside at 7:30 to grab some really delicious food.

East King Buffet is a Chinese Buffet that along with the general Chinese fare offers some Italian, American foods along with a decent Mongolian Grill and Sushi Bar. Expect to spend approximately $15 for an all you can eat meal:

Around 8:30 we'll be leaving there and heading to AMF Price Lanes. We should get there just in time for cosmic bowling. Expect to bring $15 for two games and shoes.

You will be paying the restaurant and the bowling lanes directly instead of me.

If there are any questions, go ahead and ask me!

Some MAJOR website upgrades!

Hi folks,

I just spent a good chunk of the evening making some major updates to the website. Aside from upgrading to the latest version of Drupal, here's what I've installed/done so far:

- Buddy lists. Yes, they are what you think they are. You can now have an actual "friends" list on this site. Go to any user's page and click the link towards the bottom to become their buddy.

- Private messages. Just what the name implies. Users on this site can now send each other private messages. Click the "Messages" link under the user menu to get started.

- Searching: I reindexed the entire site (and set up crontabs to keep that happening) so now the search engine works again, and posts (and users) on this site are fully searchable.

- User menu. Once you're logged in, there's a new menu in the upper left, which shows everything that is now available to you as a user.

- Tagging posts. All posts can now be tagged. Even posts made by others. Go ahead. Give it a try. I eventually intend to mine this data to make a tag cloud and other neat features.

- Smileys. I imported some Smiley packs and we now have smileys like these available: Dance Cuddle Highfive Crazy Cool Tongue Barf! They can be used on any post or blog entry.

- Anti-spam measures. I hate spammers just as much as the next guy. So starting with this upgrade, I'm going to make it harder for them to get on this site, and deal with them much more harshly when they do cause problems. The first step in this process was my installing of Recaptcha for all user registrations. I have more spammer roadblocks in the pipeline.

I have many more ideas for this site that I will deploy in the coming weeks. If you have any feedback or comments what's been deployed so far, feel free to comment on this post, or send me a private message. Thanks!

Just completed a rather brutal upgrade to Drupal 6.

Right now, the site is operational, and I'm going to bring back the Subscription modules and revamp the menu system before the end of the night. I'll post a progress report before going to bed.

If anyone sees any issues with this site, feel free to comment on this post or send me a Private Message (as soon as I install that module! Smile ) and I'll take care of it.

Hey folks,

Just to keep you all in the loop, I'm just about read to perform this massive upgrade that I have in the works.

It's either going to happen later tonight (Sunday) or tomorrow (Monday) evening.

While the site is down, anyone attempting to visit the site will see a status page that lists how far along I am in the upgrade.

When the upgrade is finished, I'll announce that here, too. Smile

Heya Everyone
The Pizza Perfect meet went well
Everyone had a blast.
After getting pizza, we walked part of the nearby bike trail and got icecream at the back mountain creamery.
Sadly, none of us brought a camera.

We decided to get together again this Friday in my garage for movies
I appologise for the short notice, it was kinda short planning.
We will also discuss more consistently scheduled meets.
These meets may be on a biweekly or monthly schedule.

Give me a ring at 570-406-7346 or send me a text.

I hope this is the right place to put this. I'm a 21 year old sea dragon who technically lives in Lake Ariel, but closer to Honesdale. I've taken sailing classes on the Chesepeake bay and Caribbean sea and had just bought a 17 foot daysailor. I plan on sailing on the local lakes this summer. Forums were never my favorite things, but I'll check in here every once in a while. I can also be found on fur affinity here: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/phano/ :3

I'd like to create a fur meet perhaps within a month or two, preferably in April. I can't have one during the summer because I won't be in the area. (I'll be in Northumberland County, but if there's a fur meet in that local area, I'd like to be informed! =3)
But from Aug-Dec. I'll be available then since I'll be at LHUP. Anyways, talk to ya guys later!

Some people might have seen my at a couple meets and such.

Hey, just joined the site and wanted to introduce myself. I am a 19 year old female living near Erie, PA who is looking for some furry friends in the area. I am currently attending Tri-State for Graphic Design. Can't remember when I started to be a furry, although I was quite young, but only found out what it was called a few years ago. I'm pretty easy to get along with so if you have any questions or want to talk, I'm free to do so.
