Whats New 2010
  • Dec 22

    Fixed a bug in the Pop Over image for supporting members,  Seems if you were a supporting member and moved to the second page, the pop over images would only show the small images telling you supporting members see the full size.  This was a bug and has been fixed.

  • Dec 11

    Update the Popup over images to make it more consistant thoughout the site.  Also changed the colors to something less stark.

  • Dec 10

    Fixed the bug in the profile save, when changing your location or travel location and then clicking save, sometimes it would not save the change you typed it.  The page will now validate that and make the change before saving the update to your profile.

    Updated the following on Search and the profile

    • You can now search both HOME and TRAVEL locations. Or either one.
    • Added the Travel location to the top of the profile name, next to the home location
    • Fixed the JUMP TO ROW on the search page.  If you change the sort order it would get lost when you used the jump to row feature. Now it will remember it and keep it even if jump to a different row

    Updated Terms of Use

    Updated Donation time to 6 Months

    Updated Dear Robbie Page

    Update the New Message and New System message indicator.  So the New Sys Msg indicator works just like messages it will only show new system messages, once you go to the Read Short Msg page it will be turned off.

    Change in Donation Duration Time.

    As of Sept 1, 2010 your donation will give you 6 months of support features.

    If you donate before Sept 1, 2010 you will get 1 year of support features, any donation made after September 1, 2010 will be good for 6 months.

    We have always been a free site and wish to continue being free. The economy has hit everyone hard. Our web site's donations and our banner ads sales are way, way down. Donations and the Banner ads pay for the cost to rent the servers and admin cost. We need to change the donation time to generate enough in donations to meet the monthly cost of the web site.

    We do not wish to make this change but we have no choice, it was not an easy decision on our part. Without enough donations and banner ads sales to meet the monthly cost there cannot be a web site. After 10+ years this is the first change we have made in our donation request.

    You can click DONATE to become a donating user and you supporting the site you get some extras features.

    Thank you for your support of BigMuscleBears.com.

    -Andy n Bill

    Big update on the EDIT PROIFLE page.  I didn't move much, but tried to pretty it up a bit for the real browsers like FireFox, Safari and Chrome.  IE users you are stuck without rounded borders.

    We have added a new HOME Location and TRAVEL Location fields.  These are your City/State/Country names.  In the HOME LOCATION field you must have at least a country listed. This field can not be left blank.  The Travel location as of today is only being saved on the database and will not show up or be searchable.  This will be added in a week or two.  You must click out of the LOCATION fields for them to be validated and it will correct your spellings and update the entry to the standard format.

    Also moved the METRIC or US format button to the middle of the page because people seemed to miss it on the navigation area.

    As always if you have problems, please let me know and I will work to fix them or provide you with a solution.
