These are the new forums. They're more stable than the last forums SSG was using, and have even more features! With luck, everything will go smoothly. Here are some things I thought I'd point out:
- You'll need to reregister once which requires a confirmation email (it's a very quick process), but if someone signs up using your old forum name, let us know and we'll fix the issue.
- Instead of a "reset" button, there's a "preview post" button which will let you see how your completed post will look before you're ready to make it public!
- In the automatic VB Code panel, the "Enhanced Mode" doesn't seem to work with Netscape 4 and previous (I dunno about after), so if it's not working for you, that's not a glitch, either use direct code or use Normal mode.
- Attach a file up to 20,000 bytes! (19k)! Remember that if you download a file, it's NOT checked for viruses by SSG.
- When you complete a post, you get taken right to that post in the thread, not just at the top! No more scrolling down to see if your words are there.
- Colors, sizes, [FONT=courier new]even a few new fonts[/FONT], you'll find many more new features in here like the personal avatar list, which is under the User Control Panel - Edit Options section and has over 100 avatars to choose from.
- Thread subscriptions!
There's even more great stuff here to play with, and we may add more stuff in the future, so enjoy!
