I like these new forums. They are the same kind that Ninten.com uses. I was wondering also, are you going to allow custom titles and avatars here as well?

Last I heard on this issue, custom avatars were earned with a new rank, and custom titles were a no for now, but I think leaning towards the "we'll see" side.

Didn't see the avetar page until after I posted, just getting used to the new format. My bad.

Love it even more now, that my lil Jar Jar Binks icon is back. :)

I'm really liking the new scene!

But if you'll forgive my ignorance, how exactly do I select an avatar? I'm envious of JT's AT-AT !

Jts At-AT just keeps on a walking!

Can't you have an image when you reach a certain number of posts?

BTW,How do you do polls - I just seem to find that "Poll" button you are meant to press when creating a thread,where is that?

Ugh... somthing new to learn. I'll reserve judgement while I muddle around here awhile. Looks kinda cool though.

Great... I go from Jedi Master with 450 posts to Moistier Farmer with 1 post. Now that's a demotion. Let's do a poll on how long it will take GNT to pad his way to 1000 posts.:)

Rollo, the AT-AT icon under my name is an animated icon I shrunk from a much larger version, it's my personal avatar till I tire of it (probably soon) but after a certain rank, you'll have the option to upload your own personal avatar, and if you'd like to use the AT-AT (this is for anybody), just save it to your computer and upload it when you reach the point where the system allows you to do so. Remember that when you change your avatar, it changes on EVERY post that you ever made on this system.


Be aware though, as SirSteve pointed out in a different thread (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=25),
If I see unneeded posts being made just to run up the post count, they will be deleted and your post count will just go down.

GNT, as for the polls, only SirSteve has that ability right now.

Lando, sorry for the changeover ruining your post count. I lost a count of 4,000 and others lost counts as high as 2,000, so we do understand that it's a bit frustrating, but I was asked by SirSteve what I thought about the poster ID issue and I felt it was better to get the system up and running before the last forums started showing ISEs more often. I've seen how the ISEs - even the ones that were tame little things like the ones on the old forums - really hurt morale on the site and how folks got very frustrated, so I felt it'd be better to have a working system now than a broken system in three weeks when the poster IDs may have been able to be ported over (since there was no guarantee that we could get it working successfully).

You can choose a pre-loaded avatar from the list of avatars in the User Control Panel (under Edit Options). After a certain rank, you'll be able to upload your own personal avatar for you.

GNT, post that question about making your own poll in the Comments/Suggestions section.

Ok. I have, after much fooling around, decided to give the new forums my seal of approval. Thanks Sir Steve and everyone else involved.

I really have to reserve my final judgement about the new forums. I really liked the format of the last version, even though it cut off my 'e.' My first impression after logging on was vile hatred because I can't use 20 letters to spell Mandalorian Candidat. The new software truncates the name to only 15 letters.

Is there any way to remedy this?

I just found the best feature that allows you to put an image straight from your home PC into a message you're posting. That is so cool! Admittedly the size of the image is limited to save on server strain and wotnot, but being able to post something straight into a conversation instead of relying on links is cool. Oh, and I won't be abusing this feature. It's just nice to be able to illustrate a point with an argument winning picture. (isn't that right Bigbarada. ;) )

Love the private message feature too. it's like passing notes to someone in class while the teacher is looking the other way...... or not...... Well I like it........ going now....... :(

I voted for "undecided" because maybe I'm too used to the old forum. It'll take time to grow into me but I do admit the new look give a refreshing feel and it should happen.

But one thing that I would like to see happen soon is for us to be able to install some picture (ie like those type JT's having) under our userID, guess that'll enhance the forum further.

By the way, I've only a meagre 170 odd post in the old forum and guess it don't hurt so much in terms of numbers. But from a Jedi Master to a Moisture Farmer gotta takes some time to accept the fact :)

humsup, read my last post in this thread before this one, that'll answer your comment about custom avatars.

Candidat, it's fixed.

Jargo, you can include other types of files as well, not just an image. Like the .txt file I attached to this message. :cool:

my only complaint, is that the old forums (in all their previous carnations), had a certain unique character to them.

these new forums feel oh so sterile. neat and clean in they're appearance.

the old forums with their warts and all felt like a comfortable old shoe, these new forums remind me of a new strip mall along the side of the a busy highway. it looks and feels the same, just like every other forum out there in cyberspace.

Well, the Comments/Suggestions section is there for you to make suggestions on how to make these forums feel more unique. (You're right, they WERE unique, they were written for us, I'm told.)

Just one question:

Why in some threads after they have passed 100 views or 25 replies, the envelope icon is not in flames??

Thats it, keep up the good work!!

It's the dot-folders, they're called "dot-hotfolder" or "dot-newhotfolder", but there's no "hot" to them. Dot-folders show you which threads you've participated in. Dot-hot-folders are different from regular dot-folders, both new and non-new, but they don't match the regular, non-dot hot-folders. Boy, that's confusing...

Anyway, the dot-hot-folder has lines sticking out the top like an announcement or something, and the dot-new-hot-folder is red and has several things stuck into it. The system is working properly, it's just that the graphics don't match the regular hot-folders.

I didn't have a problem reregistering!!! Of course I like the new forums! :D No, in all seriousness though, the layout is pretty sharp, and it shows you guys were really listening to us, and tried to put in as many features for us as you could! ThanX!!! Now if you could just show the movies 24hrs a day, get us some popcorn, some nice comffy couches, oh, and I'll take some Lemon Iced Tea garished with a cherry and those cool little paper umbrellas! :p
