Thanks JD

One of the reasons why I moved so quickly with the new forum software is that I'd rather all the disruption happened within a short timeframe of a few weeks, rather than members get used to the new layout then have to adjust to the new software too.

That, and because my web host talked me into it!

I'm still finding my way around although I'm well used to the user side of vBulletin (being a member of over 180 forums worldwide ).

I'm confident everyone will settle-in eventually.

I think I'm somewhere in the middle too. Ask again in a few weeks. It's just unfamiliar at the moment.

I'm finding it easier to use than the old one, which is quite remarkable for me. Love it so far.

The new setup is similar to a couple other forums I hang out on so it works for me perfectly.

It'll feel 'just like home' when I get the skin sorted out.

So far so good - I'm liking it a lot. I really hope this program stops me loosing the newer posts while im browsing. It was a PITA when I lost the list of new posts. I really like this option:

The threads below have not been updated since your last visit but still contain unread posts.

Should mean I'll never miss being anble to keep up

Have just touched down and am taxi-ing around the new terminal. Too soon to rate the changes overall, but not too keen on the American style calendar, and is there anyway of checking new arrivals as there was in the old place ?

I had this problem too. Eagle gives the answer about 1/4 the way down.

It's just like every other "major" board out there now.



Not a great deal of exclusivity. Oh well, had to happen I suppose.

It'll be alright, I'm sure.

Interesting. Do you think that's a minus? Part of the reason for the upgrade was introducing familiarity/commonality. And there's so much more we can do now. We'll make it 'ours' with the new skin... if I can find one.

The thing I found a bit annoying compared with the old version is the fact that any section that still has an unread thread in it still shows the dark blue Eagle motif even if you've visited that section on a previous occasion. I used to use that as an idicator that a new post had appeared. However hitting the "New Posts" link above seems to do the same thing although in a slightly less ordered way.

Hmm. It's a minor annoyance of mine too. I think there's little that can be done about that behaviour though. I just 'Mark Read' before I leave the board.

My brain didn't remember the upgrade had happened until I clicked the forum button. As with all new things it will probably take a bit of getting used to, but congratulations on what looks to be a well executed upgrade. Nice job. I'm sure there will be a few bits folk will want tweaked here and there but from here things look pretty good atm.

I needed an excuse to come up with some more avatars too This one seems to sum me up nicely

And I see I'm a Weapons Technician now too Yay!
