  UTB Forums failing to switch to full version
Posted by: SipoKapumba - 22-12-2015, 02:48 AM - Forum: Site Talk - Replies (12)

I am browsing the UTB forums from a laptop and I have noticed that the site is failing to switch to the full version. I have tried it on both Chrome and Edge, but the result is the same. Has the default view been changed to mobile version?

  How UTB saved me!
Posted by: mscloutier - 21-12-2015, 01:40 AM - Forum: Site Talk - Replies (21)

I've been a BlackBerry fan, believer and promoter for years, I've followed many a BlackBerry blog and BBM Channels.

Over time I watched many sites turn into haters and trolls, if it wasn't the site itself spewing the lies and hate, it was their followers.

Gradually that negativity and FUD started to wear on me, and at times I started to believe in some of the garbage that they were spewing.

Then I found UTB and the gang! Without them I'd still be a BlackBerry user, although I would have felt that I was alone in my fight to promote BlackBerry.

I'll admit I might not be the most vocal or active person on the forums or interwebs, but I can assure that on the street, amongst my family, friends, coworkers, casual acquaintances and even complete strangers, I promote and sell BlackBerry everyday.
I've fought many a battle in the carrier stores, not only in educating their staff, but in selling BlackBerry's to their customers, and at times completely embarrassing my wife, as she politely reminds me that I don't work for BlackBerry.

Well done UTB, and thanks for creating a place I can call home!

  Who's going to analyse the BlackBerry quarterly results for us?
Posted by: SipoKapumba - 06-12-2015, 06:57 AM - Forum: Site Talk - Replies (10)

One of the things I used to like about the Orange site was the detailed analysis of BlackBerry quarterly financial statements. However, they seem to have slackened. Who is our resident financial analyst to break down the report for ordinary mortals like me? The established media don't understand BlackBerry and end up picking the easiest angles.

  We need a button to navigate back to the main site
Posted by: SipoKapumba - 05-12-2015, 06:44 AM - Forum: Site Talk - Replies (33)

I know I raised this issue before, so, I was wondering if a decision has been made. I access UTB Blogs from both my mobile phone and my laptop. I find it a little bit of an inconvenience that there is not way to jump from the forums to the main site, because of the absence of a link from the forums to the main site. It seems to me as though making the UTB logo into a link to the main page would help with such navigation. Right now, the logo and the forums tab have the same URL http://utbblogs.com/forum/index.php, which takes one to the forums home page. There is redundancy here. Is it possible for the URL for the logo be http://www.utbblog.com? It would help make navigation between the two that much smoother.

  UTB - The Originators
Posted by: Schmurf. - 23-11-2015, 12:15 PM - Forum: Site Talk - Replies (68)

After mucking around here for a bit, I'm slowly getting a handle on who's who, but I'd like to know who were the founders of UTB, and maybe a bit of their story.

BTW, thanks for creating this place, it's pretty freaking awesome.

I've been curious about Tapatalk, seeing that it appears as a signature on Brad's forum posts. After reading some references to it in one of the UTB forums, I decided to load it on my Z10 test device first and then on my "sacred" Z30 when I was satisfied with it.
So, I have broken my promise to keep my Z30 "pure" and Android app free, by loading Tapatalk, so far, so good, in a way.
However, I have a question two questions for Brad:
Firstly, why is the Forums Tab blank, when I'm viewing UTB forums using Tapatalk? I noticed that with some other forums, this tab is not even there.
Secondly, I'm unable to use emoticons when using Tapatalk to reply to UTB forum threads. Could this be an incompatibility issue?

  New Forum Titles
Posted by: Brad - 13-11-2015, 05:33 PM - Forum: Site Talk - Replies (98)

I've been wanting to change the titles here for some time, but never really came up with something that really grabbed me. Tonight I went ahead and changed them. If you've seen your title change... well.... Oops.

The new titles and the post count that goes with them are as follows.

UTB Newbie 9 or less posts.
UTB Junior Member 25 posts
UTB Member 50 posts
UTB Senior Member 250 posts
UTB Guru 1000 posts
UTB Master 1500 posts
UTB VIP 2500 posts

I'd like something at 500 posts... and I'm not coming up with anything good. Anyone have any ideas? Throw something at me... we can even move Senior and Guru depending on the title.

Also, UTB VIP was something that we've been handing out monthly on the blogcast, along with our fancy stainless 'Don't be an iDiot' commuter coffee mug. Now that title will be used here in the forums, and those that reach that title will get a little reward. For now, our fancy stainless 'Don't be an iDiot' commuter coffee mug.

We still need to announce November's UTB VIP, which will be the last of the 'chosen' VIP's. Be sure to watch the Friday the 13th blogcast to see who it will be.

And be sure to give me some ideas for that missing title would ya'?

  is Google tracking this site
Posted by: Wayno - 25-10-2015, 06:29 AM - Forum: Site Talk - Replies (38)

Anyone ever notice that when you look to see who is currently online on this site that Google is always there? Are they tracking our every move? What's the story there? Is this something they do to keep their search engine updated? Or am I off the mark and there is simply a member with Google username? Lol

  Forum Spam
Posted by: Wayno - 21-10-2015, 06:41 PM - Forum: Site Talk - Replies (35)

What's with all the forum spam lately? I must have reported 5 or 6 spam threds in the last couple of days. Has this always been a problem or is it mostly recent? Any suggestions of eliminating it? Maybe new members should require account confirmation and forum rules agreed to before being allowed to post? Your thoughts guys?

  UTB - how many ACTIVE members?
Posted by: Wayno - 15-10-2015, 01:55 PM - Forum: Site Talk - Replies (18)

Anyone know how many active members are on here? Seems a lot quieter here than other fan sites. Is that because there's only a handful of true BlackBerry fans? Or has the trash been taken out? Not that I'm complaining, everyone here seems genuine but would encourage people to post a bit more, doesn't take me long to read the new posts, I'm craving more BlackBerry love!!
