Revised Posting Rules and Forum Updates

1121 days ago by Martin Sojka | 52 comments »

Over the past several months we have been re-evaluating the posting rules for our site, trying to find the right combination that is best for all of our members and for the site as a whole. Although on the surface it seems an easy task, it is rather quite difficult as we consider the demographics of our members as well as the different ways people use the site. After lots of brainstorming conversations, reading the site feedback suggestions, and many “yes, but…” perspecti...

Site Updates

1747 days ago by Martin Sojka | 33 comments »

Long time, no post… anyways I’d like to keep you updated about the latest updates on the site. Support and maintenance is taking more and more time because your activity grows leaps and bounds so these upgrades are not huge nor revolutionary. Anyways I’m sure that you’ll find them interesting because most of them were requested multiple times in the past. So here they are: New Events Calendar features a monthly view of all important LJ picnics and meetings. These ...

Better Home for Each LumberJock

2561 days ago by Martin Sojka | 28 comments »

You can finally enjoy the result of my latest work. We got MUCH IMPROVED personal home pages here on the LumberJocks as well as better organization of the profile and account editing. The former personal homes were not visually appealing and displayed only minimal amount of content. On the other hand, new ones have rich 3-column layout with lots of info about you and your activity on LumberJocks. I believe they represent something you can be proud of and are worth sharing with your friends...

Lumberjocks New England - Unite! Sept 2009 #5: Thanks Everyone - That was a Fun Day!

1774 days ago by PurpLev | 28 comments »

With the number of tentatives, and number of cancelations, I knew we’d had less people that I had originally planned for this morning, which was fine, but as high-noon approached, I was pleasantly surprised to see on top of the definite-be-theres, a good presence of LJ’s I did not know had planned to come – that was awesome! All in all we had counted 8 (+1) Lumberjocks (with Daniel’s Wife being the +1 – definitely a +!) it was really nice she came): Spe...

Major Upgrade: Wider pages, Videos, Larger Pictures

2605 days ago by Martin Sojka | 27 comments »

I’ve managed to finish some important upgrades today. Here they are in a list: wider pages – majority of the site visitors are already using 1024×768 or higher resolution so it is a good time to introduce wider pages. Content area now supports embedded images up to 640px wide – that’s the exact same width that photo sharing sites like Photobucket are recommending for the web use in their resizing options. As a result 640px wide pictures hosted on these sites ...

Mini-Browser or Asset Manager on Steroids

2602 days ago by Martin Sojka | 26 comments »

I know we all love fancy time-savers.. don’t we? How would you love accessing your pictures or videos (maintained on the third party dedicated sites) directly below the text area when writing your loooong blog entry, project story or even new comment. Well, now this is possible here on the LumberJocks through our embedded mini-browser. You don’t need to open new window to paste in that picture anymore – do it 5 times per post and you’ll see how tedious this can be ;...

Autosaving Drafts - No Need to Be Nervous Anymore

2518 days ago by Martin Sojka | 23 comments »

It happened multiple times in past… and probably to you as well, at least once. You spent 15 minutes typing long and meaningful blog entry only to lose it. Right before hitting Submit button your browser crashed or you lost internet connection or something else happened. I’m sure you didn’t want to type it again. It’s frustrating and demotivating. No need to be nervous anymore. I’ve integrated autosave feature into the most important forms on the site ̵...

Hello Lumberjocks!

1296 days ago by superstretch | 22 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks!I’ve waited on the sidelines for a few months watching, with lots of interest, the goings-on on this site. I couldn’t wait to join! I got a message back from Martin early this morning saying that registrations were opening back up today and here I am! I’ll leave my intro-telling to my profile, but I just wanted to say that I look forward to being a part of this group!

Enhanced Picture Viewer

2487 days ago by Martin Sojka | 21 comments »

As Bill noticed I have upgraded our picture viewer. Problem with the prev and next buttons was that they were not always on the same place and you had to hover the image to see them. To enhance the usability I’ve moved these two buttons together with the close button to the new separate toolbar at the top of the page. Enjoy!
