  1. Thanks for letting me know! Looks like there was an additional css class used that I hadn't set the scale for yet. It should be sorted now though, if there's any more problems with the sizes just let me know.
  2. The forum software came with 21 emoticons as the standard. I have however, gone and redone all the emoticons. The old ones weren't great, and there was definitely a bit of a limit compared to other platforms. There should be close to 100 now - we may add a few additional ones too.
  3. I've adjusted the text slightly to increase the contrast between the white background and the font. Readability should be improved.
  4. Thanks! I took a look and it was what I thought in that case. The problems with the layout on some posts are usually a result of users not completing their post shortcode correctly. For instance opening a bold tag but not closing it. Since the tag is then open, it affects the rest of the content on the page. There's no real easy quick fix for it, but if you do come across other examples and want to forward them for fixing, that'd be great.
  5. Please send examples of pages where this occurs if possible so we can investigate a bit and find out what's going on.

    Hero 8 Black

    Streamlined design The reimagined shape is more pocketable, and folding fingers at the base let you swap mounts quickly. A new side door makes changing batteries even faster, and the lens is now 2x more impact resistant. HERO8 Black Mods Vloggers, pro filmmakers and aspiring creators can do more than ever imagined—with quick loading accessories like flashes, microphones, LCD screens and more. Just add the optional Media Mod to up your capture game. Hyper Smooth 2. 0 Smooth just got smoother. Now HERO8 Black has three levels of stabilization—On, High and Boost—so you can pick the best option for whatever you do.

Live Burst Record the moments 1. 5 seconds before and after your shot, so you can choose the best single frame for the perfect photo—or an awesome shareable video. Smart Remote Compatible
  7. While a lot of Black Friday sales aren't worth the hassle, there's definitely a few good finds one can come across. If you find something you think others should know of (bonus points if it's skydiving related) - this thread is a place to share those finds and help others come across some good deals, to avoid having to wade through all the 2% discounts.
  8. Ever tried searching "skydiving" on Youtube? It's a mess, between a million Fortnite videos and vlogger's first tandem jumps it's a nightmare finding quality content on the platform. So we've made it a bit easier for you by running through the last year of skydiving footage and selecting a few of the best videos we could find, so you don't have to wade through the crap. Below is a list (in no particular order) of some of the best skydiving videos we came across during our search, whether it be quality camera work, the vibe of the video or something that makes you want to get up in the sky. We've intentionally omitted a number of wingsuit videos as we'll be bringing you a special collection for those soon. If you have any additions drop us a link in the comments and we'll put together a part two with your suggestions. 1. Eye Candy This video is just awesome to watch! Nothing too crazy taking place, but the camera work provides some truly awesome eye candy. Who wouldn't want to skydive after watching this? 2. The Highest Swing Everyone loves balloon jumps, right? Well we've got a balloon jump and a swing jump in one on this. A cool watch for sure! 3. Sister's By the Sea We're a sucker for boogie footage. There's something about the community vibe and the awesome sunset jumps that make boogie compilations some of our favourites. 4. A Compilation Alright, enough with the malfunctions for now - this is the only compilation in the list, this video showcases various jumps, some of which are definitely worth being reshared. While this video was uploaded this year the compilation itself uses clips from a number of jumps spanning over a few of the recent years gone by. 5. The Story of Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld From the creator: "In 1992, professional skydiver Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld boarded a plane for a routine training jump. Six weeks later, he awoke from a coma to discover that a terrible accident had crippled his body and shattered his dream of becoming a World Champion." 6. Ballistic 2019 Skydive Burnaby in Canada hosted Ballistic 2019, a new skills camp. Overall this video just has some cool flying scenes that will make one want to get into the air. 7. Invasion 2018 Despite the date on the title, this video was uploaded in early January and showcases some awesome scenes out of the Invasion boogie at Skydive Sebastion. 8. FAI World Indoor Skydiving Championships 2019 We can't just neglect our tunnel rat brothers and sisters. This year's FAI World Indoor Championships showed just how far the sport has come in the past decade. 9. Maja Kuczynska - Unstoppable One of the coolest videos of this year that incorporates both indoor tunnel flying and skydiving. A question often asked, is how do experienced tunnel flyers handle their first few skydives, and are they able to easily translate their skills from the tunnel to the sky - this video answers that question. 10. Skydiving Onto a Motorbike From the creator: "Incredible footage shows an Australian skydiver jumping out of a plane to land on a fast-moving motorbike in New South Wales. Skydiving instructor Scott Hiscoe performed the high-adrenaline stunt with Red Bull motocross athlete Robbie Maddison over the skies of Wollongong. In what was reportedly an Australian first, the pair achieved the stunt on their third attempt. Mr Scott said: “It was always going to be a challenge with a lot of things having to line up to be successful, but who better to do it with than Robbie Maddison? Pulling this stunt off over my own hometown of Wollongong made it even better.”
  9. AGAIN, a reminder that posts which are not related directly to the case will be removed. This isn't a place to go back and forth about personal details about personal beef or disagreements. That kind of post offers nothing to readers of the thread. Keep the posts relevant.
  10. The FAI World Cup of Formation Skydiving and Artistic Events was held at Skydive Arizona during early October 2019. Teams representing 16 different countries spent the week competing in Formation skydiving (4-way, 4-way Female, 8-way and VFS) and Artistic Skydiving (Freestyle and Freefly). The event opened with a memorable ceremony featuring RedBull pilot Kirby Chambliss and the Women’s Skydiving Network debuted their first all-female demo team who jumped into the event with 20’ x 30’ flags and smoke. After the opening ceremony and official draw, it was down to business as all the competitors prepared for the week ahead. The next few days were full of action as each team demonstrated their skill and sportsmanship through each round of competition. Luckily, good weather meant for a speedy competition and all events were finished by October 11th. With a full day to play before the closing ceremonies, competitors and local skydivers got together in a 10-way speed scramble competition. One round incorporated a jump from Skydive Arizona’s venerable DC-3! The awards ceremony the night of October 12th was one to remember. With over 400 guests, the hangar was vibrating with excitement and enthusiasm. Gold medals went out to the French Freestyle team as well as their 4-Way Female team. USA took gold home for 4-Way open and VFS. Norway received a gold medal for their Freefly team and Russia for 8-way FS. All disciplines will have their chance to compete again at the next FAI World Cup which will be held in Norway during the month of August 2021. All photographs were taken by Bruce Griffith, while scores listed below have been gathered from results.worldskydiving.org
  11. Apologies for only responding to this now. This behaviour should be occurring by default when you click on the orange "Unread" button. The main title will still link to the original post, but the Unread button should take you to the first unread.
  12. We haven't really promoted the fact that we now have this functionality, but since the new site went live users are now able to ignore users across the platform. That is, you can decide whether you want to hide all their posts by default or whether you'd like to block their private messages (or both).

  14. I've temporarily locked this thread. Many of you guys have shown exactly why this thread was initially locked. This forum is a place for the discussion of the DB Cooper case, not the discussion of members who own Cooper websites. Back and forths between users on personal matters not directly relating to the case offers no insight for anyone. I also want to use this time to remind you guys that there is an ignore feature which should be used. It can hide both posts and private messages from users whom you wish not to be bothered by. This thread will be reopened in 24 hours, with a much less liberal approach. Since you guys (as a whole) are unable to govern yourselves, you're forcing us to play adult and do it for you.
  15. Thanks for the feedback. We've been removing this user's accounts as they come in, but your suggestion isn't bad at all and we may just go ahead and do that for the interim.
