Every time the look of the site changes, I'm like, "oh man, why did they have to change it", but then 3 days later I can't remember what the old look was.

Are there any plugins that can make me handsomer?

No, you are already dropdead gorgeous and a PAOKtzis. There is no higher level for you available anymore.

One new feature that we are introducing is 'Clubs'. Clubs is a brand new way of supporting sub-communities within the forum. We haven't tested extensively, but we are hoping this latest feature will become a hit. It will be refined as we go along.

We'll start with 3 kind of clubs:

Open club - Everyone can see the club and its posts, but only members can participate. Everyone can join.

Closed club - Clubs that anyone can see in the directory, but joining must be approved by a Club Leader or Club Moderator. Non-club-members who view the club will only see the member list - not the recent activity or content areas.

Private club - Clubs that do not show in public, and users must be invited by a Club Leader or Club Moderator

Each club has three levels of user:

Leader - A leader has all of the permissions of a moderator, and can add other moderators. They can also add content areas (see below). The club owner is automatically a leader.

Moderators - Moderators, as the name implies, have the ability to moderate content posted within the club. As the site administrator, you can define which moderator tools can be used. You could, for example, prevent any content being deleted from clubs, but allow it to be hidden. Moderators can also remove members from a club.

Users - Anyone else that joins the club.

Site administrators and moderators, with the appropriate permissions, are able to moderator content in any Club regardless of whether they are a member of it. 

For closed clubs, there's an approval process. Users can request to join and the request must be approved by a leader. Leaders get a notification when a user requests to join; the user gets a notification when their request is approved or denied.

Examples for Clubs would be something like:

Melbourne Greeks, or Rebetika Music Lovers, or Phantis Pizza Lovers! It could be geographical defined. i.e. New York Dudes,  US East Coast PAOK fans or in broad context i.e. Mensa Society Members. Let you imaginations go wild!

To introduce the feature, I will start a Club with a subject that I love: Guitar Players

At this discovery phase, any premium member can start their own club, but it will require approval before becoming active. Again, we'll adjust things as we go along - one step at a time.

Clubs is available as a tab on the upper navigation area.

When you say "post" do you mean upload or reference an image that resides on another site? If you mean 'upload', I don't think you can. I believe this was never an option on these forums. to reference an image from another server (website) you just paste the image address as such:

https://img.bleacherreport.net/cms/media/image/41/81/a8/5b/a586/4d40/b020/15171525fdbb/crop_exact_GettyImages-687508544.jpg?w=460&h=259&q=75

Lazare,

I seem to have a problem with formatting when I post a game topic following the software update. 

When I copied and pasted the formatted information from my archives the formatting remained the same in the post. See the following example:

 

When I copy and paste the same now, I get the following mess:

MATCHUP:           A.E.K.  Athens - P.A.O.K. ThessalonikiCOMPETITION:    Superleague – Playoffs - Round 5DATE:                    28-May-2017TIME:                     20:30 GR  (17:30 GMT, 12:30 CDT, 03:30 AEST next day)CITY/STADIUM:   Athens – OAKA (Capacity: 69,638)REFEREES:            Dimitris Thanos (Grevena) - Ilias Alexeas (Messinia), Iordanis Dimitriadis (Kastoria)TELEVISION:        Novasports 1 (Greece, Cyprus, Albania, Bulgaria) Antenna Satellite/Pacific (USA, Canada/Australia)

A.E.K.  vs. P.A.O.K.  history:

Superleague

Is there a fix to that?

Can you point me to where I can get what you call " formatted information from my archives " so I can test? I need to be able to reproduce in order to see if there is a workaround.

Thanks.

Have you tried switching to 'Source' when copying, then copy the HTML and post it in the new topic - again in 'Source' view as HTML. Then you can switch to WYSIWIG.

( By the way, just had to change your profile cover photo - I hope you like! )

I sent you a word file for you to test.
