• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Suggestion?

On the forum's page I think that the "Scanner models discussion forums" should come before the "Topic Specific Forums". Was it always this way? I can't remember. I myself want to see what is going on first in the scanner models forum's first instead of scrolling down past the "Topic specific forums" to get to them. It doesn't seem to be in logical order.
What do you think?

:lol:
I didn't think about it much one way or the other. I am kind of use to the way it is but from a practical standpoint I guess most people, after they already have a scanner and learn to use it, are more interested in the general topics than in the specific models. In any case it is a Lindsay decision, so...

John_M,

It's never been setup like that, so I'm not really inclined to change it. I don't see a driving reason to rearrange the order of the forums.

I do appreciate the suggestion however.

Warm regards,

Lindsay

Does the software let a user customize the layout of the forums pages??
If it did it would be a cool feature so I could have my new york first and everything else in the order of importance to me..

And on a side note does Radio Reference sell anything like t shirts or bumper stickers?
I for one would also like to see the online members out number the online guests...

Do like I do. I subscribed to the forums of interest to me (click on Forum tools at the header of each forum, and click subscribe.)

Then, when I go to the forums, click on User CP, and I get a list of only the forums that are of interest to me.

I'm okay with the way it is. But I'll give this a try.:)
