  1. Please link the photo you would like to use but not the one in your profile photo because the extended trolley is inconsistent with the format of all the other brand wheels. Perhaps you have a photo with the trolley in the collapsed position? Also a white background (like the one in your profile photo) is ideal because that is consistent with the other brands' photo format that we use.
  2. Topic moved to the right forum. Thanks @dbfrese What is the problem?
  3. Did it work for you? I just tested it and it worked.
  4. Copy and paste it to your address bar in your browser (don't hit enter) THEN copy and paste THAT back to the forum post. That will strip away HTML codes which makes the @ thing not work.
  5. I have just renamed "Advertisements and Promotions" to "Commercial Advertisements & Deals". Not sure if that's better or worse. Let me know.
  6. Good ideas. What do the other mods think?
  7. Well I have to admit, I have been using the dark theme myself ever since. Now I feel just like @ramma where I think EVERYTHING should be dark theme. Just like the way it used to be with MS-DOS and old mainframe terminals.
  8. I'm sort of in the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" camp and @Dingfelder made a good point. Unless there's overwhelming demand from users or that most of the moderators see this as something we should do I will leave it as is.
  9. Photos courtesy of @tinawong To be released to the public around November 20 (according to Tina)
  10. Yes and the emoticons are kinda messed up because it doesn't expect a non-white background but it's not too bad. This was actually a theme by somebody else. Both me and @ramma have tried for hours getting one working ourselves and it didn't work so we settled with this pre-made solution. Not going to touch it for now.
  11. There is now an "IPS4 Dark" theme in the pulldown near the bottom of the page.
  12. This is now done. But apparently you have to click "Categories" to see them all. It's on the upper right side of the Emoticons dialog box.
  13. Okay fine. But can you download all those smilies and zip them up in one file then email it to me at the email address I'm about to PM you in discord?
  14. Too many choices makes it hard to choose. I think we have at least one good emoticon for each emotion already, no?
  15. You don't need an app. It works and displays wonderfully on a mobile browser with its great HTML5 design.
  16. Awesome. I'll look into it. Remind me again in a few days if I somehow procrastinated too long.
  17. That theme is one and a half years old (possible incompatibility). I'm also pretty sure it changes it for all users. Wow. That works. Unless @ramma means ios, android, linux, or osx.
  18. EDIT: This thread has become a wealth of information for beginners. Please check out all the other posts by the community within this thread too. Most of us who have been riding for quite some time don't give it much thought as it has been incorporated into our muscle memory and have become second nature. However, for a beginner, it is important to understand the physics behind balancing on a euc and to be actively aware of this until it becomes second nature and incorporated into one's muscle memory so that one doesn't even have to think about it anymore. When you ride a bicycle at LOW speeds (before gyroscopic forces take significant effect) you have to manually compensate by steering your front wheel left and right to avoid tipping over to any one side. Balancing on a euc at low speeds is a similar concept. If you are losing balance and falling (tipping) towards the left, then you have to steer or twist towards the left. If you are falling (tipping) towards the right, then you have to steer or twist towards the right. The magnitude of manual compensation decreases as the gyroscopic effect increases with speed. While on the topic of helping beginners, another tip is to loosely hold a luggage strap looped around the handle of the euc. This will increase your confidence as you no longer have to worry about damaging your unit, making loud tumbling noises, and/or hurting other people when you decide to step off in an emergency during your learning process. Note that this is absolutely NOT used to help you balance. The only downside to this is that one of your arms will not be free to flail to help you balance, however I believe the upside outweighs this downside. Be careful not to allow too much slack on the strap to hang too low as to let it get sucked into the wheel.
  19. Update: This "incentive program" has ended. As an incentive to "get the ball rolling" on our new Discord channel I will find a random time in the next 24 hours to credit everyone who is online at that moment (easier to idle on desktop of course) in the Discord euc channel (you don't even have to talk) with 10 forum reputation points. Update: I will credit those who have chat more than 5 lines of non-spam meaningful conversation at any point in the 24 hour period as well. In order to receive the reward you must have a username or nickname that matches your forum name. To change your nickname (if it's different from your Discord account name) while in our Discord euc channel type /nick [your-forum-name]. Please note that nicknames are channel-specific and it doesn't affect your name in any other channels you might be on. This reward thing will repeat every day for several days or until "the ball is rolling" (whichever first) and this will stop. Please note that only forum members that already have at least 10 existing reputation points can be rewarded. If you're under 10 points, then points might be given by discretion.

  20. The following people received Day 3 rewards: @freetheoranges @ramma @Paddylaz @bTomLotus @RobValley This "incentive program" has ended.
  21. The main reason for changing it was to prevent people from logging in with one platform (say PC) without an account, and then logging in via another platform (say Mobile) and end up having two different accounts with the same name before "claiming" either accounts. This happened to @Tilmann hence why I changed it.
  22. https://discord.gg/GJTHZ3r What is Discord? It was originally meant for gamers and real-time voice-chat however it has become very useful for everything else and for text chat purposes as well. For our purposes it's basically "IRC for the 21st century" (as @esaj put it) for euc discussion. It's a real-time group text chat that is "cloud-based" so that you can log on anytime and still see the message history on what you missed while you were offline. The @mention system works wonderfully and the private messaging system works great too. Just click the link at the top to get started. Be aware that, like anything new, it takes time to get the ball rolling with activity. Be the early-adopter and "roll the ball" (I mean wheel). Click this link to go straight to the channel. Thanks to @freetheoranges for suggesting to set up a Discord channel for this forum.
