  1. https://invisioncommunity.com/news/product-updates/invision-community-apps-for-ios-android-r1161/
  2. My opinion for what it is worth: the default page when the site loads should be https://paulding.com/forum/forums/ instead of https://paulding.com/forum. This would go directly to the list of forums instead of requiring either clicking for new topics or clicking on the forums link at the top. And I still think many of the banners and images are way too large and make the site look old and outdated. Other than that, it's great!
  3. Why invest money in an app when site traffic is so low?

  5. Someone in Iowa finally went out and bought a calculator! Iowa Dems release '100 percent' of caucus vote totals showing Buttigieg ahead, amid calls for recanvass https://www.foxnews.com/politics/iowa-democrat-final-caucus-vote-totals-buttigieg-sanders
  6. There was a forum setting that replaced the word Trump with that text instead.
  7. They are still not done counting. Wow.
  8. I see that the forum software is still setup to replace the President's name with OURcurrentPRESIDENT. Seems pretty childish to me.
  9. Republicans are almost done counting and.....surprise!....#OURcurrentPRESIDENT won.
  10. Sounds like the Democrats are having major problems counting votes. Ultimately I think Bernie will win but the technical issues are pretty embarrassing given the number of actual app users they would likely have. And yet they want to control healthcare for 300 million people.
  11. Disclaimer: the following comments are highly subjective but are also based on many years of creating and working on websites. In my opinion, the 'new' paulding.com looks very unprofessional with many of the graphics in use. For example, the image to the left of the new politics forum is way too big and looks unprofessional. Also, the ads are too large especially considering there are three ads on most pages (the ads also look unprofessional, in my opinion). The forum organization is also less than ideal with most current active forums in one section. Again, all of these things are subjective so maybe nobody else agrees, but if I were someone that was visiting paulding.com for the first time, I would likely not even bother registering after seeing it. I'll also add that another thing that hasn't helped in the past is unfair moderation by the mods. Again, I won't list names, but there is/was a perception that some of the mods in recent years favored posters that agreed with them politically. Mods should be able to be fair regardless of their own political ideology.
  12. Well, being banned for a while makes it a little hard to participate. Before that, paulding.com, over the last few years, turned into pretty much a place with 3 types of posts: 1) politics 2) drivel from TP and 3) non-discussion type posts (obits, business ads, etc.). I participated quite heavily in the politics section and, aside from posts from some other specific people (who I won't list here), enjoyed the back and forth about important political topics. Some will argue the politics section is what caused many people to stop posting in other sections. I'd argue that it's more likely that the proliferation of social media sites like Facebook and Nextdoor is the cause for the lower amount of traffic here. This is true of many community-based internet forums and not limited to just paulding.com. I'll also add that I no longer live in the Paulding area (I now live in east Atlanta) so many of the Paulding-specific posts aren't relevant to me any longer.
