New Homepage Trial!
Just an early introduction to our potentially new integrated homepage, it's still in testing mode and a lot to be changed and tested but please give us your feedback!
The link to the homepage is in the top left hand corner of the screen, or it can be seen by visiting S15 Owners Club - Homepage
From the homepage you will be able to see our latest announcements, in the top right of the page there is a calendar and towards the bottom of the page a listing of the latest updated threads.
Latest Threads (bottom of page)
As mentioned above, this is launched on a trial basis. We would like feedback and suggestions from all members who are kind enough to spend a moment doing so.
Our ultimate goal is to be able to give an All-in-one homepage for our users where they can see the latest upcoming Meets and Events, be able to view the latest news regarding S15oc and view a summary of the latest activity on the forum.
We hope this improves the usability and experience of the forum for you

As some of you are probably aware, we have been making significant changes to our forums in order to enhance the user experience, hopefully you will like them.
If anyone would like to leave their feedback or suggestions, please reply to this thread! All kinds of feedback (good or bad) would be greatly appreciated!
Below is a brief list of what has been done
1. Forum Default Template
The theme has been updated to a more modern style and hopefully easier to use on mobiles
If you want to use the old theme, you can easily select it at the bottom left hand side of the screen and select vB4 Default Style
2. Meets & Events
The Meets and Events forums have now been merged into one
We have introduced prefix's which allow you to tag your post with the type of event, allowing us to keep all information in once tidy forum.

3. Classified adverts
We have restructured the classified adverts and removed the "Wanted" forum.
Wanted ads are now integrated within the corresponding classified section with new prefix's introduced for items For Sale(FS) and items Wanted (WTB)
The structure has changed from:
For Sale, Wanted & Traders
- Cars For Sale
- Car Parts For Sale
- Other Items For Sale
- Importers & Exporters
For Sale and Wanted
- Cars for sale
- Car Parts for sale
- Other items for sale
- Traders: Products and offers
- Importers & Exporters
- Interested in becoming a trader? (link to contact us)
In the future we will be introducing individual forums for specific traders.
4. User Ranks and Titles
User Ranks have now been introduced:
rank_0.png to rank_5.png
Titles have been changed for staff, traders and members:
5. Instagram links on profiles
As a lot of users use instragram, we have introduced a new profile field to accomodate this. This will show under your stats when you post.
The username is clickable and links directly to either Instagram.com or the instagram app on your phone.
You can set your instagram user here (at the bottom of the page): http://forum.s15oc.com/profile.php?do=editprofile
6. New Emoticons/Smilies
Pretty much self explanatory
7. Instant Notifications for Forums
You can now get an immediate email notification when a new thread is made in a forum of your choice (this was previously limited to daily or weekly notifications)
8. Increased Avatar Size
We have increased the avatar size now to 210px x 100px for all members.
9. Higher image post limit
We have increased the amount of images per post to 10, this is to help users who make build threads to have more flexibility of posting a large amount of images
10. New Members
We have made it easier for new members to join, all that is needed now is an introduction post in the "Introduce Yourself" forum. The post will be moderated and if approved, the user will receive full forum access.
11. Liking a post or reply
You can now like post by clicking on the "Like" button on the bottom left of any post.
If you want to view posts that you have liked, or posts that you have made that have been liked by others, you can view this from your profile
You can also treat this as a way of setting a post to "favourite" for viewing later!
There will be more updates in the near future, hopefully you can enjoy these for now!
Let us know what you think by replying to this post!

There has been a minor change to the For Sale rules. I have added the rule below with the change showing in red text. Thanks for your assistance.
14. Thread Bumping. DON'T DO IT!!!!! Unless you want to get an infraction, bumping of posts less than 2 weeks from the last post (That is read 14 days!!!!!) is not allowed. The offending post will be deleted and you will be given an infraction. (It will be at the Admins discretion whether or not to give infractions)

Some of you may have been shown a Google malware warning when accessing the site today. This was due to a remote image in an old post (ironically one of mine ) linking to a site (now) recognized as being a source of malware, NOT the forum containing malware. This image has now been removed and a review has been request from Google.

Just to let those concerned know, I will be changing the status of any accounts with Hotmail email addresses I receive bounce notices for to 'Awaiting Email Confirmation'. This means that you will be unable to post until you re-confirm your email address. This might give you the nudge you need to update it to an outlook.com address or alternative address.
