Would you please put the names at the bottom of the page again?
How would that help? The names are those people who are online.

Question Where's the bloody login page?

OK, I admit that I am frequently jealous of the well written flames and outrage the some inmates can write. I'm not that person, even though I have those feelings.
So here goes . . . . .
What the F... has happened to the login page?
There used to be a nice URL that I could bookmark that would open a page on which I could log in.
Now I have to go to the adv home page, THEN click on some stupid LOGIN button, have a form open and then fill in the fields.
WHY?
WTF was wrong with the other way?
I have a password manager program that no longer works - I have to manually type in my info each time.
And please don't tell me to stay logged in.
Can we please have a direct link to be able to log in?
Thanks,
-ceej

support gpx attachments in Regional Forums

I'd like to put in a vote for supporting .gpx file attachments in the Regional forums as well as LDT.
I *do* understand the issue of photos - their number and size.
But gpx files really should not be an issue.

Thumbs down Hard to read black text on dark grey background

I realize that you are likely using some forum product, and in many respects it is pretty good. However, when you upgraded to the current version, some user interface useability features got worse. The main menu in white under the yellow "Ride the World" is nice and very easy to see: Inmates, Photos, Site Rules, Net Posts, etc...
However, under that is this dark grey bar with black text! almost impossible to read.
There are also places where dark grey text appears on a black background (e.g. the Title: and Message: when doing a reply - Thread Tools and Search this Tread when reading a thread).
All in all it is much harder to read
Can someone take a look at this - maybe there are some configuration options that could be tweaked?

In one of the bottom corners, there is the option to change forum 'skins.' That will solve many of your visual issues. I prefer the crash skin. The default is something else.

Thumb one thing fixed the other

OK, changing the user interface display (see post #67) also 'restored' the login page, so all is well again in ADV-land.

I have stopped receiving thread updates. Checked my settings, all looks ok. How do I correct this? Thanx in advance for expert intervention and the large mallet of repair instructions.
