I think TMP is a good service, but sometimes im put of logging in because (particularly at home) it is very slow to load up, not so much at uni because its a really fast server!

Just wondering if theres a way to make it a bit faster?
Try the 'Clean' or 'tMP Main' styles... they are much less graphic intensive than the default tMP303 which I will be moving away from as the default selected style soon.

Let me know if this improves things for you Scotty...

Cheers

Hmmmmm., I'm not allowed to use an animated GIF as an avatar any longer! Anything wrong or changed that we should know?

"You may not upload animated images."

That's news to me BN - we'll check the settings (sounds like a new setting in the new version of the forum software).

Must say I quite like the idea of having no animated avatars............................but that's just me! ;)

This is a known and documented error on tMP and has been for a while... try loggin in via the forums rather than the portal page, and then click the tick box so you don't have to log in each time you visit.
Hope this helps. :)

Hi

Had a idea that might be useful and potentially an income generator for tMP. It's not a fully developed idea yet......... so feel free to let me know why it wouldn't be practical ;)

In the same way that there are separate forums set up for people involved in tMP events (eg Hadleigh) where only those people involved have access to the forum, could something be set up for individual bands. You may need to have a contact at each band to approve entry and possibly a mod could be appointed from the band if you didn't want to overload the super mods any further (that bit probably needs a bit more thinking about.....)

The benefit to the band would be that they don't need to set up their own forum and tMP has much more functionality and is more user friendly than the run of the mill free forums. They could use it for notices and keeping the band updated as well as more fun subjects specific to the band (and you may get rid of some of the in-band banter that no-one else understands on the other forums :rolleyes: ). Also ex-members or friends of the band could be allowed to join if the band is happy with that.

Benefit to tMP - well, you could charge a small monthly fee - alternatively, as each band member would need to be a tMP member to get to their band's forum, I would think there would be a nice increase in membership and potiental advertisers/supporters/or even just clickers on the ads !

What do you think ?

Hi Elspeth,

This is a great idea and believe it or not is something we have done previously on tMP. We have had several hidden forum areas that only certain bands or individuals can access.

if any bands wants to have something like this on tMP - your own private area that only you and those individuals whom you decide - can see, then please feel free to contact me with requirements. You can also have your own look too - doesn't have to be the tMP style - it can be any style even your bands one!!!

Your own band forum on tMP eh... sounds great yeah :)

Contact me for details...

I just registered and the quick regsister failed in both firefox AND IE and threw me to a blank page (register.php I think) which just hung :-(

Obviously the old way is OK
