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.
There's even more great stuff here to play with, and we may add more stuff in the future, so enjoy!
