Links in signatures seem to look different, too. No colour or size formatting. Weird!
Over all though, very nice work :D The interface is clean and polished, very professional looking.

It looks great Dusty, thank you so much!

Hmmm posting is a little odd (ah never mind, I figured it out!). But besides getting used where everything is, upgrades are usually good. C:

Yeah that seems odd, when I toggleed between editing modes some options weren't avaialable if on the 'code' side of things.

Love this feature! Posted Image Thank you dusty!

I am one of those people who has a hard time accepting change, but I'm sure I'll grow to love it quickly! The only thing I've noticed thus far is the forum is actually a LOT slower, but maybe my connection is just acting up today. Will test and report back later. Thank you for the upgrade!

Also you might find you need to go into notification settings and tick all the boxes again, otherwise you're not notified in people post in threads you've posted in, posted in your own threads, commented on your profile and so on.

Nice! It's going to take me a while to get used to though! Posted Image Love the smiley bar at the bottom! Posted Image Wait, what does multi-quote mean? Oh, also, why is there like 17 pages of new content? 8O And how do you tell if you already viewed a topic? Like you know on the old one it was like faded, but on this version I don't know.

How does that saving your post as you type thing happen? Because the forum has already eaten a post of mine. :P

It's the same for me too actually.

It's been really really slow for me, too.

Otherwise - the forum looks great! ;D


..only other tiny complaint would be that you can't tell who is online unless you go to their profile. (Unless there's another way to tell?)

Really really slow loading the original page and to post after composing. Glad to hear that it's not just my computer.

The only other way I know of is scrolling all the way down to the bottom. It shows members online. :) But yeah, I miss the little icon thingy by everyone's name too.

One other thing is the status updates only show like 5 recent updates, and I kind of miss seeing a full page length (plus with as active as everyone is, chances are all the new statuses will get bumped down very quickly before anyone even sees them!) Is there a way to maximize this larger? Perhaps I'm missing it. :scratchchin:

oooh. If you scroll over someone's name on their post it tells you if they're online or not.

If you click the "view all updates" thing you get a page of loads on, plus more pages if you click the NEXT at the bottom.

Oooh awesome! Posted Image Thanks Marisa!

Oh yeah! Good find :D
