New section "Employment offers and requests" has now been added.

Employers:
  • Serious, current offers only
  • Keep it factual
  • Provide a contact email address and at most one URL

Employees:
  • Do not post any personally identifying information
  • Jobs can be discussed in general terms but other than that all communication is to be by PM or offline.
  • Absolutely no responsibility is taken for outcomes relating to the use this facility.

Within the next few days (or maybe even tonight if I get a chance) I'll be implementing a whole slew of upgrades embracing pretty much everything from the board software, the database, the webserver and surrounding software, the OS it's running on, the hypervisor running that, and the physical hardware running that so expect the site to be up and down a bit.

Will post here again when it's all complete.

Is it possible to update the links on the home page which relate to different thread sections. Like "get on the bus recruit" etc, a lot of the links are dead.

Also is it possible to get a redirect to the thread you want to post in after you log in, instead of a return to index link?

Cheers

When you click a link from the home page and it ends up at a thread which has either been moved of merged, you see this:

Quote:
The requested topic does not exist. It's probably been moved or merged. You should be able to find it by using the search function.

also, beneath the popular links section on the home page is the following:

Quote:
Still can't find what you're looking for ? Give the search function a crack.

Lastly, the static pages link section at the bottom of the home page states:

Quote:
Some of them date back to around 2006 and so would be in need of an update, however they are informative, succint, and free of BS

I think the problem is that some people are a bit basic.

I generally use the mobile version so maybe I don't get the whole picture.

But I get your point, use the search. Btw im just asking, not implying action is needed.

Just a minor thing I've noticed is that the visitor counters at the bottom of the page are no longer keeping track of registered users.

True, that broke a few upgrades ago. Am still looking to reinstate that.

Speaking of breaking things I'll be doing some fairly major upgrade and migration work over the coming days, so, if the lights suddenly go out and you trip over a chair, you'll know why. Will post an update when it's all done and relative calm has been restored.

But deep in that body of marching men
The soul of a nation stirred.

AusMilitary.com is Australia's leading military discussion forum. Originally formed back in 2004 as AusSpecialForces.com as a forum for, by, and about the Australian Special Forces, the forum has since widened it's scope to include all members and branches of the ADF as well as our honoured guests and allies from overseas. Despite some sections being open to the public, the forum still enjoys the membership and advice of respected members of the Special Forces and Special Operations Forces both local and international, as well as those from elite specialities in the conventional forces. From recruit training right up to SF selection tips - if it's frank and honest advice you're after, you'll find it here.
