This has bugged me from day one; why are there pawprints on the forums... it's a model HORSE board. No way to upload a horseshoe graphic?

Just wonderin'.

Funny...I just know noticed that they were paw prints!! I don't think I've ever looked at them properly and registered what they were (or maybe I'm just losing it!!!). I agree, horseshoes would be much nicer.

I wondered that too. Why does it have to be paw prints? :grin :grin :grin

That's the way the software came, and yes it makes no sense for Model HORSE Blab. :lol I'll put it on my list of stuff to fine tune ... have to look up and read how to work in another graphic. After I look up and read about a few other things. :2spy

Looks like you need to replace these two gifs:

and
http://www.modelhorseblab.com/forums/images/statusicon/forum_new.gif
http://www.modelhorseblab.com/forums/images/statusicon/forum_new.gif

Both are 46 x 25 pixels.

This is what I have if you want to use it, I could make a more transparent version for the other "paw"

Or, I've seen on other forums where they have like Huck Bey or the ASB instead of the paw print!:)

It would be cute to have the Blab woohoo guy. Bright purple if there is a new post and pale purple if there aren't any.

Or a FAS.....??? ;)

Looks like it'd be an easy switch, just rename the .gif and there you go!

I actually think that the paw prints are really cute. :dunno

However, I do admit that I kind of like Sue's idea about the FAS.

Yeah -- question, since we are on the subject of those pawprint icons...

I accidently clicked on the 'mark forums read' link at the bottom of my screen, which now made ALL of those pawprints the 'lighter' color. Now, when I click on 'New Posts' nothing comes up. I guess it thinks that I have read everything!

Is there a way to reverse that? In other words, can I click on something to change those to the dark pawprints, meaning that the threads are all 'unread'??? :dunno

I like the paw prints, myself.

No, I don't think you can undo all read once clicked.

The paw prints don't bother me, but I'd like to see horse shoes :)

They don't really bother me either, but I really like the horsshoe idea if it's not too hard :)

Just some fyi, the forums you see are not regular ole html pages. They are all dynamic php and assemble on the fly when called ... as it were. It would be too easy just to fix some html code. :lol

If I can find where the pawprints are stored I could probably do a fix. Hmmm, I might know where to look ... :2spy

Great ideas y'all. :)

Everybody wants a FAS of course ... :lol ...

Would point out that the FAS image belongs to Breyer, but it has been hijacked so many times for so many purposes maybe that doesn't matter (mailbox sculptures, decor shadow cut-outs, etc. and so on.)

If you want horseshoes, I just made a couple. Feel free to use them if you want them. I can also make them bigger, if need be :)

Oh yeah....I like these horseshoes! They are definitely more appropriate for our group. :thumbsup
Can we use those?

Oh jeez, is that what that means? I haven't been able to figure that out from day one--why some are faded and some are bright! It all makes sense now! LOL! :lol

I agree, we should lose the paw prints and do something more horsey-ish! :grin

That is so strange! I had the pawprints up until about a minute ago. I was reading through this thread and couldn't figure out what you guys meant by the "bulletin board" things. So I messed around with the forum settings at the bottom of the page (I think I changed it from "Legacy" to "BlabLegacy) and now the pawprints are gone!! It doesn't matter what setting I choose, all that I have now are bulletin boards.

I also think it's funny that the settings share my username. For the longest time, I thought that function was personalized for each member and would read SuzieCreamcheese if a person's username was SuzieCreamcheese. :lol

If you are still not seeing 'proper forum' tomorrow please let me know. You can PM me.

I hesitate to suggest clearing cookies ... but sometimes that works. I know it does clear some saved passwords as well.

Most of the images for me are all blurred + funny looking.
I can also see the horseshoes for visited forums, but still have pawprints for forums with new posts.

I was wondering what you-all were talking about, so I hit "refresh" and all the paw prints turned into perfect horse shoes! Thank you!! (what a great "team effort", yaay, Team Blab!)

Love it love it love it!!!!

Shannor gave us the horseshoes - I thanked her in her visitor page! :)

In your avatar .. is that Quzqo, or yet another model subjected to too much heat? Looks a bit melt-y - but may just comfortable. :wink :grin
