Posted:This is for those that do not notice a change.
I hoped this was going to only take a couple of hours. I have now been working on it for 12 hours and I am about to pass out for over tierness.

Unfortunately I could not transfer across to SQL the either/or topic and a few other extra long posts with over 1000 replies (sorry it those were yours, I stilll have copies of them)
I still need to do a lot of fine tuning on this new system. Hopefully it is going enough for your to post a reply :confused:

I will work on it more in the morning.
I have already found some errors but please also feel free to post them here so i can continue on them tomorrow.

Kindest regards

Malcolm

Posted:That's what I was referring to in my post, yes. Is there some way that we could collapse those threads instead of seeing each individual response? Maybe I haven't figured out how to do that yet with all the new options. Thanks for trying to help Dragen.

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Musashii, that link isn't there when I view the threads active in the past 24 hours. I would really like it to be though. Is it there for other people?

I clicked on the threaded link, then went back to the main index, then to the past 24 hours link, and they didn't stay threaded either...

Posted:one very very small problem i have found.

on the mouse over on either "home of poi" or "community", it comes down often accidentally as i have not yet learnt how to use my mouse properly. but due to the refresh rate (how long it takes the muse over to dissapear), i cant then click on someting else, or simply on the screen, so that the mouseover dissapears. then i can click on "main index".


I see this as a waste of a few seconds, which i could have used much more productivly, picking my nose for example.

Posted:I like the new format, just gonna have to get used to it. I don't really like it being so white though because it makes it harder for me to look at and read stuff. I liked it when we had the gray background and the font was just alil bolder looking. Looks good though! weavesmiley

Get your well deserved rest Malcolm! hug

Posted:Nice job Malcolm. Thanks for all the work you do, as usual. You are really amazing!

Now, it says PM's are gone? Is this permanent because if so I am going to put up a thread telling people to resend those of the last week because I did not save them in email.

And what happened to Fireperformers.com section? I put up 3 new posts and was truly hoping for responses there, then they all went poof! Can it please be given back...

Unless of course you haven't gotten there yet and then I will simply have to be chastised to wait a bit more patiently! spank

It is going to take quite some getting used to, and there are some minor things that I simply don't like at all but I think this is really nice and much fun!
Thanks Malcolm!

Hugs, Love and so much Respect. I hope you had lovely ice cream dreams! biggrin

Posted:Wow, this is really different, and i only saw the old forum for about a day ubbloco .

It looks great and has a lot of neat stuff to play with! biggrin

But to whine with some of the others... my intro post is gone...waaaah! I will just repost another one if they don't get tranfered over though, no worries. I just like to whine tongueeace:



Just a few things I notice, mostly personal preference but after all the boards I've tweaked and hacked, these are pretty common requests :P :


Being able to see location, click on homepage or send PM's from the persons post

There's no master reply button, you have to click reply from a post.

The new topic 'post' link may not be the easiest to find for new folks

There's so many columns that the subject column is squished off to the left, the subjects should be the main column that doesn't get squished.





The added stuff is waaay groovy though. biggrin

Kudos to you and your hard work!! beerchug



edit:/ oh hey, location *is* there...coooool. An email/ PM/ homepage link section would still be groovy tho. ubbangel
