Thanks and the removal of Groans
For the time being, there will be no Groan feature. Thanks is still available at the bottom of every post. Put simply, groans were getting out of hand. They turned from a feature that was meant to say "I disagree with you" to a feature that was used by posters to continue fights from previous threads and attack posters. Therefore, the Groan feature is gone for now. If you disagree with a persons post, simply click "reply" and tell them why you disagree.
This feature is available for all of our donors! To create a bet, simply click "new thread", then scroll down and click the box that says "Post a Range Bookie Event" under Post a poll.
Note: You're betting Buffalo Chips. Your chip total is located on any of your posts under your Avatar and post count. To see the status of current bets, click on "Range Bookie" at the top of your screen.
This feature allows you to purchase items with your Buffalo Chips. These items include:
- Custom User Title (including colored, glow, underline...etc)
- Change your Username
- Change ANOTHER USERS title
- Donate to another user
- Steal Buffalo Chips from another user
- Purchase special images/smilies
- Upload your own images/smilies and sell them to other members.
You can access the Market by clicking "Market" on the red navigational bar at the top of any page.
Reply with quote
Technically this feature has been around for a while, but it has been upgraded drastically. This button () is at the bottom of every post, and by clicking on it, will bring up the Quick Reply box with the posters quote already inside of it. We encourage all posters to use this feature as it reduces the load on our server, by not opening a new page but simply using the quick reply AJAX feature.
PM in Posts
You will also now notice that there is a PM icon () at the bottom of every post, making it convenient for you to send a message to that poster.
Next to "Forum" on the red navigational bar at the top of the forum, you will see a link that says "What's New?". By clicking on this link, you will see the 20 newest threads/threads with the most recent responses.
We now accept Video Embedding from YouTube, Vimeo, Hulu, Dailymotion, Google, and Metacafe.
Our main chatbox is located at our forum home (BuffaloRange.com). However, if you would like to make the chatbox larger, you can click on "ChatBox Full" in the blue navigational bar at the top of the screen. This will bring you to a page with a larger chatbox and allows you to follow along much easier.
Buffalo Sports Now
To find the latest Bills, Sabres, and NFL draft news click on the "Buffalo Sports Now" link on the red navigational bar at the top of the screen. You will then have the option of choosing Bills, Sabres, or NFL Draft news to view.
Reporting a post
It's becoming increasingly obvious that many posters do not know that they can report a post. This is the BEST way of getting the moderators and administrators attention. We get swamped with PM's on a daily basis; it is often hard to respond to everyone in the same day. Therefore, we STRONGLY encourage users to report a post if they are being attacked by another poster or if they see someone breaking TOS. You can report a post by clicking this icon () in ANY post. Click the triangle image, write down what you are reporting, click submit and it will be made aware to all of the admins and moderators within seconds. Once again, this is the BEST way of getting the moderators and administrators attention.
This post will be edited as more and more features are introduced.
