Yeah! I was thinking, as many of us on facebook, we could jump start the site and meet new people!

I don't know about adding that. I did look at their site, quickly, and they seem to want access to the board content for advertising purposes. I'll pass it along to Tom-SA; the decision is his.

These kinds of things are meant to be pasted into an HTML or CSS page, not a Bulletin Board.

It could be added to the index page.

If you want to make the site more interesting, you can get a widget from YouTube.com that can be customized to suit... doesn't take a lot of HTML knowledge.

You get the widget from YouTube by going to their pages telling how to use YouTube.

Go here: http://www.youtube.com/youtubeonyoursite

If you want to see it in action, check out my site: http://butchboard.com

Another way to drive traffic would be to create a TWITTER account that y'all could follow and talk in real time, as it were.
That would require making sure everyone knows the twitter name so they can follow it.
It's along the idea of the Facebook thingee. Bulletin boards are becoming very last century, I'm afraid.

This is not spam... just checking up on everyone and I saw this. I don't come here much anymore because I'm attacked all the time and accused of spaming the board... so I've given up on bulletin boards as a waste of time.

PS... It's unusually hot in Vancouver lately.

I don't really care for twitter. No one needs or cares to know what I'm doing every minute of every day. My life isn't that interesting :? .

I like it for the news that comes to my phone and I like the way it automatically updates to facebook so you can send messages like new phone numbers or just to let everyone know that you got home ok from a trip. Its good for sending out jokes too.

Really?

Sorry, but I'm afraid that Twitter is for Twits.

My experience with this board (in spite of my "newbie" label, have been around here for ten years now) is that most that come here are a pretty shy lot, (myself not being one of the shy types). Few members actually seem to ever post anything, and many who do are simply exchanging greetings.

That is pretty dullsville for most. I suggest another way to drive traffic is to create a youtube account. Unfortunately for this board, Butch has already tied up the name butchboard ( don't take this as spam... http://youtube.com/butchboard ...it's new) but straightacting is still available, I think. I'll have to check on that one... but you get the idea. On the YouTube channel it is possible to list this board or site address.

Videos from members could be posted to YouTube by e-mailing them to the youtube responsible administrator.

It's work... darn.

I'm trying to spend more time on the net. If you have an interesting gay video, I will be more than willing to favorite the video at youtube.com/butchboard or you can mail the video to me for posting. Mail to Butch@butchboard.com

I'll try to get around to making a video, sometime, about this board and maybe that will help... by putting in the tags, and stuff. There are already a lot of straightacting videos on YouTube

regards, Butch.

Well, I've joined the TWITTER generation, sort of. I'm officially a "twit" now. Had to happen, I guess.

I think it will help my site and could help this one. They provide widgets for you. So does YouTube.

You can see my new widgets on my homepage. Click my homepage icon or http://butchboard.com
