@  FlossyTheSmart : (04 May 2015 - 06:28 AM) As for why you'd want to be able to see new members... I don't really know. Perhaps if people wanted to send messages to people who are new, or watch to see if new members are in their area?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (04 May 2015 - 06:27 AM) I bet if you keep an eye on it, you'll find it will consistently bring you to the New Content page with "Members" selected from some page. What page that is, I'm not sure yet.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (04 May 2015 - 06:26 AM) The forum does a lot of stuff that is context-sensitive (or at least did before I adjusted that), so if you were on a members profile page then hit "View New Content", it would show you new Members. I thought I had killed that entirely by forcing the "View New Content" button to always link to the forums, but apparently not
@  FlossyTheSmart : (04 May 2015 - 06:25 AM) In the picture, "Members" is selected under the "By Content Type" section in the left side toolbar, on the New Content page. Clicking Forums just above it will revert to new forum content
@  dmoonen : (03 May 2015 - 08:07 PM) I agree but its a glitch nevertheless. Why can standard members see this option in the first place, we cant do anything logical with it.
@  Leadwing : (03 May 2015 - 07:30 PM) The simple solution to this is simply to click on the "view new content" again .... it will take you to the desired page.
@  dmoonen : (03 May 2015 - 06:21 PM) Yup just got it again https://www.dropbox....apture.JPG?dl=0
@  Leadwing : (02 May 2015 - 08:03 PM) When I click the new content tab and get new members, it has always been because the new member has joined before any actual 'new content' has been added. In other words, the program seems to be reading the addition of new members as new content.
@  dmoonen : (01 May 2015 - 07:58 PM) Its a random occurrence
@  dmoonen : (01 May 2015 - 07:57 PM) No the new members tab was never pressed. I usually go to the home page log in then click the new content and kapow newbies fresh from the inter web's.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 April 2015 - 07:36 PM) Th3Guardian - Yes! Make a thread and make it happen! Weather is getting good now!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 April 2015 - 07:36 PM) Dillen, on the left side of the "View new Content" page, ensure that "Forums" is selected under the "By Content Type" section instead of "Members".
@  turbomar : (30 April 2015 - 07:23 PM) Count me in!
@  Th3Guardian : (30 April 2015 - 10:26 AM) Attention all Ottawa owners, I'd anyone interested in doing a cruise night in the near future?
@  dmoonen : (30 April 2015 - 10:19 AM) Happens on my all my computers with different browsers
@  dmoonen : (30 April 2015 - 10:17 AM) Does anyone else have this. When I click "View New Cotent" I sometimes get a the new members page
@  jwight : (29 April 2015 - 06:39 AM) Yay! Thanks Max.
@  Huronlad : (29 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) That's the good stuff!  Thanks Max.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (29 April 2015 - 06:05 AM) I think everything is fixed now. If you see any lingering issues, let me know via a PM or the shoutbox!
@  Huronlad : (29 April 2015 - 05:18 AM) CsC withdrawl is no fun at all.

I was reading the manual regarding changing bulbs on the 451's headlights but the instructions were too descriptive (all text). Since I am more of a visual guy, its kind of hard for me to understand. I came across this website and it has very good explaination (with photos) on the proper procedures. Hopefully this will help out those who seeks to replace lightbulb, install HIDs or LEDs later down the road. Link as follow: http://www.evilution.co.uk/188

evilution is a great site. I've used it to find out about all kinds of odds n ends. I hope it stays up despite the following announcement on the homepage: "Not much been going on as I am selling my smarts." http://www.evilution.co.uk/index.php

Well, my 451 at 19700 kms, both low beams dead....... Cynthia was getting high-beamed yesterday, so likely they both went quickly one after the other. Replaced with Helia Optilux on passenger side (had 1), and a spare OEM on driver side. The Helia are a great long lasting bulb.451 = WAY easier to change than the 450

Changing a burnt out headlight on my 451 was super simple - I took it to the dealer and they changed BOTH sides under warranty - there were 17000 km and 17 months on the car.

Really? I didn't think normal wear items like bulbs were covered by the warranty.

When searching this site I found a post advising that headlight bulbs were covered for more than two years (of course I can't find it now!!). I took the smart in and yes it was covered. While I wias there they also replaced the other headlight, which had not failed - all at no cost (washed the car too).

For those of you who got their headlights changed under warranty, I assume they didn't make you pay for the bulb?? I just went to get mine done, I mentioned to them that it still may be covered under warranty, he looked at me funny told me I'd still have to pay for the bulb, took my keys and went to go fix it.... The other day I had called ahead, they asked for my vin number saying some 2011s aren't covered anymore but some are still covered. This guy today didn't ask me for my vin, nor was it on the receipt.

He also changed only one. I see most of you got both done when you went in.

I know my car still has until at least September for warranty.... And only has 22,000kms

Just curious, thanks

I paid $15 dollars for the one bulb, which isn't totally unreasonable considering they changed it for free.

I think bulbs are considered to be "wear and tear" items.
