Forum Updates/Feedback
#1
So @Bob1st has obviously done a great job migrating the forums to or new MyBB system.  There are a ton of new features, and not to mention it is a LOT faster.  But with every new system, some bugs will arise.

I would like to keep our feedback/suggestions/requests/bug reports here for an easy to access place.

Let us know what you think and we ALL need to thank Bob for his work!

Yea I think I got everything. Might be a few bugs in your signatures such as smiles showing up as strange code type things. Just got a delete that and replace it.

Also there might be randomly big words in some post because the front size scale is different in the old one then this one.

A very interesting layout compared to the old. I like it! Thanks Bob! Big Grin Might take a bit to get used to the new layout but I'm sure everyone will like it!

Forums look a lot better. What about putting in a background image on the forums? 

Are the forums going to be kept at a dark color? the blue and black are nice. Seems too dark though, maybe a lighter tone? like teal green (gloss) with white or light grey? or you can just keep the blue, but change the rest to white?

omg bob youre so quiet but secretly youre like a mad scientist brewing up these things

forums are cool theres buttons and things everywhere and i dont know what they do im gonna press all of them and probably ban myself by accident

anyways, im not a huge fan of the color scheme (and no im not suggesting it be pink..tho...) i like the grey backrounds but the bright blue sorta hurts my eyes. but again i realize that might be sorta hard to change.

this is just something incredibly small but when you send a PM , i didnt put a subject, and it wouldnt let me send it without one, but the error message was like a light grey on a white background and it was impossible to see without selecting the text. 

secondly, i seem to get logged out of the forums while im clicking around from thread to thread, is that just an issue on my side?

I think changing the colors isn't difficult. I haven't created a forum in a while but, there should be a CSS (cascade style sheet) where he just needs to find the code that handles the different section of the forums and just put in a new hex color.

For you logging out, did you save your credentials?

I have not had any problems being logged out.

As far as the buttons go, this is a completely new system, it happens, learn it.

Colors we are working on.

Little confused on buttons since its moved. The color is bright and kinda hurts the eyes. Other than that I think people will get used to the new forum

Ok lots of good feedback. Somethings I fixed/added 

  • Fixed bug with errors showing up as late grey @mauiihan (Your logging out problem might be solved by clearing your cookies/cache in your browser)
  • Added View Unread post button and new post show as Unread if you never saw them @gr:m
The color scheme can be easily changed to fit our liking. Here's a example, now idk what way we want to go with the colors. Sounded like it's to bright so in my example I went for a more darker tone.

the red from the old forums was sorta what i associated with TC - although that red is great in the example above, do you think you could get the old color? also might help transition if the color is familiar. 

personally i am adapting and liking this forum just as much as the old one. 

the view new posts and unread posts at the top is very helpful. 

i figured out the logging out thing, i was opening threads like i used to with ctrl+clicking to open a new tab-thats where the logging out happened. 

and a quick question i had, if i want to go back to the main page like where all the threads or different forum genres are, what button do i click, cause when i click on the forum without hitting the back key, im not sure how to return to the main forum page.

This seems to be coming up a lot to quote a post Click the quote button then it shows a red minus. When your done quoting all the post you want then on the bottom of the editor click "Quote these post now" and they show up. Also for fast quoting only parts of it you can highlight the part you want then hit reply (Grey button that shows up)

With the theme thing i'm going to attempt and replicate the old one the best I can on the new one here.
