Not a clue...never even noticed it before. Maybe someone will chime in, or if not we can ask Admin later.

I think it came along for the ride. It isn't updated for current use.

Gee, I never noticed it was 2006. Can't fault Mitch that he never noticed it.

I'd rather have a LIKE button instead. Speaking of such, why can't we get one? Most other forums have it.

why can't we get one?
Because we try to keep this forum on a professional level, rather than a social one.

That's a magic calendar. You pick an event that happened back in 2006 and we here at DIY will make it go away.

When I click on the calendar, it's showing today's date. Not sure why some of you are seeing 2006.?? Altho, not sure what the purpose of it is.

I also get 2006 with the forums calender, there is an option to go back to 2000 but none to go forward.
Becky, what made you special

Funny - I get a "you do not have permission" error when I click on it.

Seriously? Do you really think it would come down to that? I think it would be great to confirm or not a post without having to write a reply which usually repeats what was already said. For instance FURD's advice is almost always correct and most of us could LIKE it as a confirmation that we agree thereby giving a sense of comfort to the OP. On the other hand I've been known to give what I thought was good advice only to be told in many words that I'm wrong. A thumbs down would suffice.

LIKE / UNLIKE

You be the judge!

Mitch, that must mean you aren't special

You'll have to argue with higher ups than me Norm. I've got nothing to do with what is or isn't on here. Just the messenger!
But seems to me, if there was a Like/Unlike button, you'd have a lot of the guests, that only read but don't participate, clicking those buttons and it wouldn't necessarily be because the advice was good or not. In my mind, replies are more helpful and beneficial on a forum like this one. My 2cents only!

Thanks Becky. Well stated and I too also agree...

One of any additional buttons this site does not need...:NO NO NO: (IMO as a co creator and as an Admin) is those whom read only or participate and some times disagree with posted info is making it all to easy by pushing dislike buttons only to create conflicts and or disagreements etc. between members, mods etc. >

We already have enough overall site rules on the site regarding site usage and posting rules etc
.<

One such rule is specifically Posted in this forum regarding conduct etc.

That's MY TWO CENTS...... on this issue.



Post Edited:
Title edited to include buttons as well as calendar.
Word last removed & additional wording added to clarify why no need for any button as mentioned above.

BTW:
If the calendar fails to display the year or date correctly, you just might be living in the past......LOL...

Well, you did say the last thing this sites needs! So the door is not closed completely.

Yes I have to agree with everyone's comments.

Admins Note:

Post wording edited: Door is now fully closed and locked... Post edited...
