New and Improved

53 posts in this topic

We finally finished testing the new forum software and got it updated/installed. We did make some minor changes to the board settings to increase security, but most of them should not be noticable.

Basically, we purchased a licensed copy of invision since everyone almost unanimously voted it the best. We have a lot more functionality and the ability to handle more users more efficiently. We will me adding some modification over the coming days, but they should be minor.

Please let one of us know if you have any problems that you think need to be corrected. And be sure to thank nick84 for his hard work in converting everything.

I don't know if this is from the update or not, but there is a link in "Board Statistics" -> "Forthcoming Calendar Events within the next 14 days" that says The MindWAR is going to be coming out soon.

Otherwise, good job :voteyes:

Well, it simply shows calendar events and since no one ever removed teh mindwar, it is still showing up. :( Someone will get around to removing it.

hooray for upgrades! personally, i think this look is alot better than the green/black, but since it is probably blinding anyone who comes here from the main page, it probably should be skinned.

But that's the perfect litmus test! it tells you either that your monitor's brightness setting is set too high, or that you really should consider at least looking out the window during daylight hours :)

It really was cool with the green and black, but this does seem to be faster and looks cleaner.

Hmm, when I clicked on "View New Posts" there was usually a link to "Mark all forums as read". Where did it go?

EDIT: nevermind, I found it

I'm digging it.

The new skin is sexy. Like, sexier than my avatar.

Since there seems to be debate over the skin, please let people select the other skin in their controls.

Small glitch: 2 quote buttons for each post?

Not a complaint, but I find it odd that there's a mix of Ivb1 buttons mixed with the Ivb2 buttons in this new skin. Overall thumbs up. ^_^

it's a macro-quote button, so you can quote multiple people, then a regular, one person quote button labled "reply"
