Thanks

Now that I've had a few days at a PC to use this, I have formed an opinion.

I do like the name change ability, as long as it's used in moderation... I like the way it posts pics and gives you an instant preview. It does load much, much faster on the phone, but I do miss the Huddle app. Being able to vote up or down on individual posts is a nice feature.

The layout in and of itself isn't bad, there is a lot I like about it... but to me it is much harder to follow. Just visually the forums are harder to read... the quoted texts don't stand out as much and it takes a lot longer to go thru new posts than it did on vBulletin. The new content button is nice, but I also miss the way userCP showed your subscribed threads, which btw doesn't seem to work at all here...

Definitely some tweaking that needs done.

If you click on "New Content" and then select "Items I participated in" you get the same kind of thing the usercp used to have.

yeah yeah yeah I know its all fugged up right now. I upgraded the forum software which messed the skin up. It will be fixed in the next day or two. Until then there is a community box of tampons for you, up until now its only been Johnny Rockets using them on his leaky arse.

OK... cleared my "personal messages".... there were messages listed in there all the way back to 2008! Apparently the forum transfer brought back ALL the messages I'd ever sent and received... no wonder it was full.
