of the Latest Slugging News…
and Features Added to Slug-Lines.com Website!
A number of upgrades and new features have been added to the website
to handle the increasing number of visitors and to improve security!
Here's just some of the upgrades:
- Upgraded Message Board - This
version has more features including a "quick reply," more
powerful search engine, more profile options, 128 bit encryption of
password, hidden email feature, and more! See
- New Events Calendar - An
Events Calendar has been installed to allow Slugs to post events
that might be of interest to Slugs. For example, The Stafford Board
of Supervisors met on November 7th to discuss and
vote on the 610 Shuttle Bus Service. See
- New Lost and Found System - A
new lost and found system has been installed that allows even
greater flexibility. Now Slugs can post, edit, and delete entries!
In the past, only the administrator could change a posting but now,
Slugs are in control! See Lost and Found.
Classified Ads Feature - A new Classified Ads feature has
been added to the site! Now slugs can post items for sale or wanted
at no cost. See
- New Survey Software - The
survey's are still being developed, but once enough
data is collected, slugs and drivers will be able to determine the
best times and locations to slug. Wouldn't it be great to know that if
you arrived at the slug line a few minutes earlier or later you might find a bunch
more drivers/slugs? See Slug Survey's.
- List Server Coming
Soon! - A new List Server function has been purchased
that will allow Slugs to join specific a Slugging List. The idea is
that Slugs could join a list to get updates on that particular
slug-line. And, for new lines getting started this would be a great
way to stay in touch without having to access the website to
"look" for changes.
To all the Slugs and Drivers, thanks for all the support!
Slugs now have a way to get home after hours!
Pay $7 an hour to use the car, insurance and gas included. Plus, no
