|A very warm welcome to the new Ex Playboy Bunnies Forums!
But why 'new' forums? What was so wrong with the 'old' Ex Playboy Bunnies Message Board?
Unfortunately, due to server problems beyond my control, the old message board will no longer post messages. It's still there; it just won't post new messages or process replies to existing messages.
But this has been a blessing in disguise! For now I am finally able to provide the proper forums that the ex Bunnies community deserves. Now provided on proper, purchased web hosting. No more ?free web space? and those accompanying, annoying banner ads!
And now, finally, ALL of the Ex Playboy Bunnies site is located in ONE location, and with ONE simple address:- www.explayboybunnies.com
You'll find that these new forums are a vast improvement on the old message board system.
Now you can:
:arrow: Register and have your own profile (it's fully customisable, you reveal only the information you want to).
:arrow: Preview your post before you submit it to the forum.
:arrow: See your post immediately after submitting it. No more waiting on the Webmaster (me!) to add your post to the system.
:arrow: Edit your own messages whenever and how often you like.
:arrow: Format your messages (colors, font size, bold, italics, etc).
:arrow: Quote someone else's post from earlier in the 'Topic' when replying. Useful if you want to reply to a specific point in someone else's post.
:arrow: 'Hot link' to images on the web, or attach your own image to a message
:arrow: Include links to other sites in your messages.
:arrow: Attach files to your posts. You can upload a file, e.g. an image, with your post and it will appear underneath your text.
:arrow: Search all the forums via the 'Search' page.
:arrow: Keep track of who has posted and when (click on another forum member's 'Profile' button to view their profile, then click on the link to see their post history).
:arrow: Send 'Private Messages' to other forum members by clicking on the 'PM' button. This is an internal email system for the board. You read and send private messages on the board without having to leave the board. Just like web mail such as Yahoo! and Hotmail, but you can only send messages to other forum members.
:arrow: Make Polls. Canvass the opinion of other forum members on a subject of your choosing.
:arrow: Upload an avatar picture. Your 'avatar', if you have uploaded one, is the photo under your username. You can change your avatar as often as you like. You don't need to have one if you don't want to.
:arrow: Add Similes/Emoticons to your messages to help convey the tone of your posts. Similes are those funny little circular faces.
And much more! You'll quickly see how much better this new forum is.
You can still view the old message board. But new messages have to be posted here. Sorry for the inconvenience, and apologies for not implementing this better forum five years ago!!
If you want to, please feel free to repost any messages from the old board onto this new forum (in the appropriate Playboy Club forum). If you really want people to see your original messages, I recommend reposting them here. Sorry for the inconvenience.
That aside, I hope you all enjoy the new forums and wish you all happy posting!
If you need anything explained, just ask. Happy to help.
