Forum Software Upgrade...

I am curious to hear what everyone thinks about the new forum upgarde. It will take some getting used to!

I am still working on getting all the features restored after upgrading the forum software. Please post your comments, bugs, suggestions, etc. here and I'll try to address them as fast as possible.

Andy

I like it... it's gonna take me a bit to find my way around.

So many new things...so little time!

Ok, a few questions...I was in my CP and there is a thing called attachments. I've attached a whole bunch of stuff in the year plus is there a quota for that? Also there is a counter for downloads. Does that mean everytime someone actually downloaded the image? If that's the case, folks really liked my gear shifing avitar!

Ditto to the 2 prior questions. Will links to each posters profile and photos return eventually?

usually "uprgraded" means more complicated & less efficient.

Well you asked Andy and I never want to dodge a good question.

Too early to tell how easy it will be to pick up the new layouts.

It really is going IMHO depend on what the increased "features" equals.Weighed heavily against any feature that are now lost.

If it was just some cosmetic tweek then I say you should have left well enough alone. But if it helps us retain members, or archive valuable info in a more proficient way then BRAVO.

If the Karma is gone that is a blessing. Maybe some folks will quit posting just to see the "scoreboard" light up. However the rivets were sort of appropriate. But please consider leaving the Karma trophy in Chicago or Charleston or wherever it went to hide. Good Riddence. Ya know if you leave certain children with too many crayons they'll scribble on all the walls & furniture and trash the house.

If the report posts to moderator is gone that is not good. EDIT I just found that feature it is now just an icon to open the report box.

Is this the long awaited "major" upgrade? I look forward to learning the ropes of the new interfaces.

BTW it appears from my quik trip around that if one abandons a custom avatar that there is no way to replace with anything but the forum avatars. Is that the case?
Well you asked.
Thanks for the time.
jaco

I logged out and then could not log back in. I got a message saying I had to wait 15. mins. I visit the forum briefly and often as life permits - get rid of the 15 minute time out.

While searching foums, I was denied a search because "only one per 10 second is allowed" - too slow.

My other half Janet's Husband is unable to log in at all..... maybe a good thing and finally...

I'm not crazy about the ad bar right at the top - but understand the rent may be needed.

On the plus side - This is still a great site and I'm glad that Andy makes it happen!

Thumbs up good so far!

handy if one is in a hurry.

I suppose the calendar's just taking up space right now that will be used for photos? Or does it fulfill a function that isn't apparent to me yet?

And I miss the eBay link of old. But the site looks bright & clean, and I don't share Hart's pessimistic forecast or Jaco's wish to stop people from posting whenever they flippin' well feel like it.

Some pages don't have a convenient "home" button at the top (probably an oversight for the moment) and I liked it when the threads on the home page listed the latest poster rather than the thread-starter because, frankly, I divide people into categories based on how useful their posts tend to be & whether I should go to the trouble of checking out the thread just now. But maybe I should poke around a bit in the new tools before jawing away too much....

I'm just happy that it is back up and running. With the site down, I was thinking about selling my computer last night, since I don't do much else with it these days but read these threads! Thanks Andy!

Is there a way to see who is online?
Are smily faces gone or is that under "Go Advanced"?

Cool It will take time

Similar Threads feature of being able to place the 'cursor' over the threads title to read the context inside that thread is kewl. As far as for the rest of the layout, etc..That's gonna take some time getting use to. The background level is a bit bright but, that may be due to the fact that I'm using a LCD monitor and, it's background light lites up my room already~..All in all, I like it with just one exception, that being the ads at the top..But..rent is rent..(thanks to whoever said that~!)
One question needs your attention~!
This question has been asked by numerous folks on here and, we need to have it cleared up for all of us~
When I or, anyone else for that matters, post an PM or send e-mail to another individual, either on this forum here or sent via W3..Do you or anyone else have the abilties to view, access the context of that material in any way shape or form? Is a backup copy of either the PM or email kept on the server as well, even when it's been deleted>??
And, also..don't base your ans on the fact that 'just because' my question doesn't cover any specific unknown detail either.
A full reply is expected from you and, not from any Moderator..Plse~!!
I feel this is the only way that this question will ever go away is, to ans it fully and completely.
Thanks Andy..
ciao

Thumbs up Good Job Andy !

I've noticed that some of the links are missing at the bottom of each post. The one I really miss is the "home" button at the top of the page.

Does this new format for posting have a spell checker?

Thanks Andy for keeping up on thi site!
