I just killed off the chat room, it wasn't being used all that much and was causing all sorts of errors... my inbox was getting tired of it:

It re-tallied post counts as part of the upgrade, so any posts/threads that were since deleted for whatever reason would have been knocked out of your tally. 

I feel a great disturbance in the Force...as if thousands of posts cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

FYP (sorry, that attacked my Star Wars OCD mercilessly)

In theory, the chat room was a good idea.  The major flaw in it imo was that there was no way for the mods to oversee/edit things like they can here on the forums.  Which means that we would've had to put our trust in the internet. <shudder>

Also, I would've kinda missed basically live-posting playoff games and the like with fellow boards members.  There was a novelty about it.

It wasn't meant to be past tense so there was nothing to "fix." It was a "real time" reaction. Also, I was paraphrasing. Now mind your own business while I teach CS85 how to post a picture and use a light saber. Rookies. B)

Interesting glitch.

On my iPhone using safari. I was reading a thread and it looked normal in the new board layout: image.thumb.png.4aec14dfa251831cc67f42ed

 

Then I clicked the back arrow on the browser (on the bottom left), and I got thrown back in time to the old layout:

Just an odd glitch. It's fine if I hit the forum button to go back rather than the browser's back arrow.

Nope, commence the onslaught

Having us hold on the onslaught until the 0 to 100% was done working itself out was brilliant...it gave us time to get used to.  Like all major changes, I found it visually jarring at first, but warmed up to it quickly.  Visually, it's an upgrade.  

Things I love:

  • quote boxes that state who is being quoted.
  • 25 posts per page.
  • The stats at the front page.
  • The ability to check out notifications without going to a new page (e.g., quoted posts and likes)

Things I don't love (but are very minor):

  • Does not say who liked my post, just that it was liked.
  • Loss of post number (which came in handy probably once or twice during my previous 10 years)

Suggestion:

  • I see we can minimize the quotes (i.e., make the text below the time/member disappear).  I'd default to that if possible.

Just curious what you like about seeing that big statistics panel.  Maybe there's a benefit that I'm just not taking advantage of.

First off, I do 80% of my browsing this forum "on the big screen."  So it's not in the way.  Also, I am on the front page so little, I find it not to be disturbing.  

I guess most of the info is fun to see once in a while; I don't need to see the running count of topics, posts, and members.  So I guess my stating that I liked it was a gut reaction to the first time I saw it..."oh that's cool".

I said it in the chat, but I'll repeat it here for the official record: 

Thank you for this site, Chris. It's a great resource and a great community to be a part of.

And after FanHome and other stops and starts and moves and migrations many years ago, thanks for keeping this version of the message board running smoothly since 2002. (!)

Thanks! But most, if not all, the credit for keeping this place running so smoothly goes to the mods and other admins, especially over the past 2-3 years. 

And of course the great forum members too.

Member title bar was set lower

I don't have to convert image forms to post them

Is that a cover picture I spy with my liI' eye?

Sigs are re-backish?

Dislikes:

BEEP BEEP BEEP

I just wanted to tell you that someone quoted the 'content' you made

I was signed up for the email list on following with V3 and was fine with it, but this is plain annoying and scares the crap out of me every time it goes off. But that's why I turned the volume down.
