New forum is up and running!

Post by José M. Rico » Tue Apr 08, 2008 5:54 pm

I'm sure that by now all of you have noticed the new layout of the forum. For the last couple of days the board has been unavailable and that is because I was upgrading the forum software and making some changes. We are back now!

I'm still setting some new features and fixing a few small details, but If you find any bugs, broken links, have trouble logging in, or anything odd, please report that to me as soon as possible.

Any questions? Comments? Post them here.

Hmm...
Like the other one better, more user friendly. This one is not as easy to write posts, and there are no emoticons. But that is just one man's vote.

Hey, not to be pushy, but now that the new forum is up and running, could we maybe install a chatroom?

Sincerely,

NO, and please do us all a favor and stop using the forum like a chatroom. This is NOT a chatroom where you can flood posts with "smilies" at all time. Calm down and give messages a thought before you post them. This is not a race to see who posts more messages.

By the way, thanks to all for your comments.

Hopefully, we will all get used to the new forum quickly.

I am still finishing setting things and working on a couple of new features such as the possibility for Senior Members to upload their own images.

What a beautiful shot of Courageous on the opening page! Nice touch Jose! I suppose this will be a rotating feature?

Could Jose give us a run down of the 18 April updates as he has with pervious updates?

I am really enjoying the "new posts" and "first unread" features.

It's been a long time since I was here so I was forced to re-register but it is nice to see the forum upgraded with a new layout and the new features of the latest version of the software.
