You might have noticed something new today. We have added Facebook "like" and Google +1 buttons! This is cool because now if you see something you like on RCGroups you can share it with your friends on other social networks.
They are located next to the post reply button on threads, underneath the map on the maps page and on member blog pages underneath the username and title. They are super simple to use. If you like something and want to share it on Facebook just click the FB "like" button. If you want to share it on Google click the +1 button.
If you just can't stand the sight of these two buttons we have a solution for you too! They can be disabled by going to myrcgroups -> edit options, then go to the forum display options in the thread display options section and click the disable social media buttons check box. It's just that easy!
Now click that like button up there...you know you want to!

Hey gang, just your friendly neighborhood transmitter mascot here again with another exciting announcement about the RCGroups Beautification project!
We've just uploaded some changes to the beta style we toyed with earlier this week. Thanks to everyone who contributed feedback. Some of you just hate hate hated it because it was a fixed width style, so we're trying some new things this time.
Here is what we've changed:
Added a notification/style switcher under the main menu for all styles
Increased contrast between all text and background colors
Fixed bug that was causing horizontal scroll bar to appear prematurely when sizing the window down
Added a minimum and maximum width to the content area instead of a fixed 1000px width
Added a full fluid style
Various small fixes
The new style is something we're calling "adaptive width" because it will let you resize it up to a certain point. Give it a shot and if you don't like it try the fully fluid width. Note that unless you have a widescreen monitor you won't see the difference between the two.
After our last test ended with some negative feedback, Jim Bourke posted some thoughts to explain why we wanted to try a fixed width style, for those still curious.
