Explanation of BON Design Changes

I am going to try and address some of the main concerns/questions with the changes made to BON.

What happened to my profile page?

All of the information that used to be on your profile page can now be found on the More Information Tab.

How do I log out?

The logout link is now under the Account option on the upper left side of the top navigation bar.

Profile Background

To change the background of your profile we have added a simple feature where you can put any URL and use that image as the background of your profile.

Where is the Old Wall?

The Old Wall, although popular at one time, was becoming less and less used by members and posed an enormous security threat to members. A decision was made to phase out the wall with this update.

Again, I encourage you to leave comments and report any bugs or concerns with the new design.

  1. I hate not being able to click on the notifications & going straight to it! I have to search thru everything to find the new comment. I cant change the account settings to show i am online. I click save & it still reverts back. Fix this crap! I wanted a social site for bikers not another half ass facebook!

  2. Event & Ride Search feature use to be my fav. when i joined 6 months or so ago. Its been changed,and doesnt show hardly anything. Ill search for 25 or 50 miles away, and itll show 1 or 2, then alot of stuff hundreds of miles away. The ongoing event option was especially good.
    Ill check other ppls profile, and see they have runs or events planned, but doesnt show up in my search.

    Please fix.

  3. My profile says: Owns and rides a 1981 Yamaha Special ll and 2 other bikes. How do I change this I would like to list my other bike (08 Harlet FLTTCU) and I only own two bikes total not a Yamaha and 2 other bikes?

  4. Bring back the top photos
    restore the wall
    Are you really reading the comments
    Sounds more are opposed to the changes than for

    Why did you only give a day or two notice that the changes were coming
    I saw no dioscussion prior to the changes
    I have only seen one email that addressed some of the concerns
    Certainly not the lenght of concerns that was addressed above

  5. This is the third time I’m asking how to change the top paragraph. I don’t ride an Aphilla and my boyfriend has two bikes, not three and rides the other one not listed. We need to be able to get to the garage and change this.

  6. Hey James,
    I edited my account setting regarding my birthday, to show my birthdate and year in my profile, but it only shows my age. Can you please tell me how to fix this?

  7. I really hate the new changes, I really hate the new site, I really hate having every post I’ve ever wrote on my home page, I really think its too much like facebook which I stopped using and deactivated from. I agree with the 99% of my fellow BON members that the new BON site SUX. I won’t be visiting this site which is really sad because it brought so much joy and many hours of fun chat with old and new friends. Please please bring our BON back.

  8. While I think I understand why the top photos and forums were dropped, I find it disappointing. I was probably as disturbed as anyone by the group of neanderthals who took over the forums, and used the top photos to ridicule people and the juvenile sniping at one another. Still, there were a few interesting forum threads, and I wish that feature had been kept, perhaps with some means to filter out the truly objectionable contributors.

  9. Why am I receiving so many spam messages attempting to lure me away to other sites by alleging that there is a female member interested in me but that she would prefer communicating on another site. Can these be filtered with a spam setting?

  10. i can not put a background image on me profile…. it goes in box but not workin.. is there a certain site we use?….

  11. Hello, Neat post. There is an issue with your site in web explorer, may test this? IE still is the marketplace leader and a large component of other folks will miss your fantastic writing due to this problem.

  19. Pretty good points that you made here thanks. Particularly applicable to the UK market and I had hope to be able to utilize this to any business type including a driving school. Bookmarked and subscribed thanks a lot.

  20. The relation between two countries is not cordial but that air of
    antagonism has never stopped or forced any business from withdrawing any of their
    business initiatives. The ship owner could see
    that the captain had paid the on going rate and the merchants were all given the same opportunities
    to offer their services. With this mobile phone you will
    be able to program it to recognize your own handwriting alone.

  25. This would have been a good sign, even as had not expected to
    find quite definitely fine gold in the stone. Nash, who had
    received a gigantic claim in reward for his discovery, may be seen almost any day busily at work.
    Much maudlin sentimentally, and a lot empty declaration, have been
    written and spoken about crime, and against the punishment of criminals with death.

  26. He died in 1985 but this very personal museum is a lasting reminder of an very remarkable man.
    By doing this, you’re reinforcing that negativity and attracting to yourself
    MORE. The free Lyrics Search app can be acquired at the Android Market.

  27. DASHCOM websites are springing up throughout
    the world. Just because a link is on Piratebay doesn’t imply that the users
    are getting, thus, the flawed data. We’ll start our
    tour at Marina Grande on the north shore from the
    island, about one third with the way in looking at the easternmost point.

  28. DASHCOM websites are springing up all around the world.
    By this, you are reinforcing that negativity and attracting to yourself
    MORE. Now, movies aren’t the thing that piracy trackers allow
    links too.

  29. As the admin of this site is working, no question very rapidly it will be well-known, due to its quality contents.

  30. Target Keywords. A plethora of Google related features are also included including
    Google search, maps and Gmail features along with Google talk, YouTube and Picasa integration.
    Because Caffeine is really a significant departure from
    previous versions of Google’s search engines like
    yahoo, Website owners and marketers could see dramatically different results
    for their google search optimization and site efforts.
