Yup, Yet Another Dumb Suggestion! (maybe Less So)

Sun Jun 10, 2001 9:31 am

Hey,
How about having a list of airports to search from in the search engine that is located on the front page, you know, like the list that there is when you are adding photo's.

Can you do this on the advanced search? Even so i still think it should be on the front page so we can easily access photo's from the best airports, SXM, HKG etc and order them in most popular/newest.

Regards, EGGD

I feel I have the best suggestion yet!

How about adding a spell check to the forums, so after you click on post, it goes to the spell check and edit page, then posts it.

Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten, Uptown, what now? Lets make it happen.

I love em' both. I have many times wanted to search for pictures from my home airport but because of my slow modem have never wanted to churn through the advanced search.

I also like the spell checker, since, my spelling is not all that great.

It is also very hard to read other people's posts which are full of errors. So that would add to the overall quality of the forums.

Spell check has been considered before, the problem being that with all the specialized terminology and acronyms in use we could run into trouble. An extensive custom dictionary would have to be developed.

How about this also.

Ya know we have an aviation article's section on the front page? Well how about a thumbnail of a picture and a link below it, to the "story behind the picture". You know, if something strange happened, or incredible.

That'd be cool, i'd love to here people storys about some of these pictures (that they can't fit into the remarks field underneath the photo)

How about using Microsoft's spell checking system, and don't ask for it  Smile

For shorthand words, you can skip them. Just click ignore on the spell check and off it goes to the next word.
