  • Little picture thingys below signatures

    What in the world are those little pictures that have popped up below the signatures lines?

    I would appreciate it if someone could explain them.

        Thanks for the explanation.

        Next question......WE NEED THEM........WHY??????

        Just curious. I participate in three other forums and this is the first I've seen those do-hicky thing-a-ma-bobs..

            Admin:

            Well, now that you explained the "What"

            Would you give us an example of the "Why" and the "How" these links are used?

            From your previous post in this thread, I am unable to find a use for any of them.

                  I must say I find the icons distractingly prominent. What's your vision for using them to improve the forum, Rob?

                      The four icons are social bookmarking sites which are all effective ways of sharing content with others. There are no fees associated with the services. No one is required to use them but they are available to people who do use these services.

                      The goal with making them available is to introduce more scrollers to the message boards. Traditionally, people navigate to the site knowing SSWC, link building, directory listings, organic search through Google, Yahoo, MSN, AOL etc... This is just another tool to drive more traffic and help increase membership to the board.

                      I would agree with Gill that the icons are too prominent in the existing design. In the short term, I removed them unitl I can make them less obtrusive.


                      Below are links if you wish to investigate them further. The all have their own merits and must admit they are not for everyone.

He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....
