    make-over madness

    is it me or does everything seemed squashed and stretched?

    and what's up with the pixelation on some pictures?

    it's not just you.

    same thing happened with the "upgrade" at rbr. personally i dislike the new format.

    hopefully there's a setting somewhere i haven't found yet that will resolve it, cuz this sux...

    I agree. Navigating is cumbersome

    make-over madness

    Trying to access forum through tapatalk. I use the 'participated' tab to keep track of recent threads.

    With the conversion, threads that I've participated in recently aren't displaying. Anyone aware of a setting, etc that may impact this?

    And while we're on the subject of conversion: I suggest we keep this relatively positive as a community wiki.

    The change had happened and for good reasons (less spam) so complaining about the new software isn't going to help or change anything.

    I guess I'm the only one that likes it (wut? I like blue). It's going to take a bit of getting used to though.

    BOOM! that's the ticket! the "narrowness" was my chief dislike. the rest isn't really that objectionable.

    Well, I just took a self imposed about 10 days away from MTBR and just came back, but this new forum "upgrade" I think will cause me to take a permanent vacation from here, just not as easy to follow or see the forums etc.

    Just so the Admins/Mods are clear - I HATE HIS NEW DESIGN!

    Yep. Really like being able to see the rep I've given out. Not that crazy about the "Latest Forum Posts" display.


    Did anyone else notice that it now auto saves as you're typing a post? Yay! No more lost dissertations!



    Edit:

    Ooooooh....and apparently you get instant notification when you get rep. I'm already out for the day, but there's always tomorrow!

    I think im with you mate, i mean has anybody looks at the latest posts section, its got members names first and looks like its all rolled into one, it would take 100 years to work out, same goes for subscribed threads, its a poorly layed out new forum, the last one was 100 times better, i really have just about lost my enjoyment for mtbr, and its sad for me as i used to love the place..
    Good luck all you great guys on here, im taking a break i think, cheers

    Will take a little getting used to how to navigate, but seems okay, once Net Wurker's screen fix is employed. I don't like that there's not automatically a quick reply area at the bottom of the thread, but rather you have to click "Reply to Thread" first. Seems like a step backwards.

    I think I'm actually starting to like the latest forums post display. It shows uploaded pictures. Anything that lets me see the pictures faster is OK in my book, I can get used to the rest.

    Ok if you click through Latest Forum Posts then choose "New Posts" from the sub menu it will give you the same layout as the previous version.

    Eh. Maybe I'm just easy going, but it doesn't bother me that much...

    My biggest problem is I haven't had to "log in" since I created my profile, so I couldn't remember my password.

    Hope you're not gone forever Tone's; we'll miss you, mate!

    BTW--thanks NetWurker. I immediately switched mine to wide after I read that!

    Ops.... looks like Francois video on how the new forum works is revealing a little bit too much, hes been doing a bit of repping at 03:24 and when you watch it on 720p fullscreen its quite clear.

    Mods might want to take it down before too many see it.

    And you can pause it to read it. Maybe he doesn't care? I mean, surely he knew people would be able to do that.

    Good catch Oz! appears to be quite the prolific neg repper.

    I also noticed that the emoticons have changed. This one minus the hand is no longer available....that was my favorite

    I'm ode skoo so while the new interface looks slick, there is a definite performance penalty and my brain is hard-coded for plain lookin text mode. Must be from staring a green terminal screens back in the 1980's for so long every day that when I closed my eyes to go to sleep at night there was a green GLOW hahahaha.

    That little clip of the rep panel in the video should probably be taken down. We don't need any more people revved up about rep--it simply isn't worth it.

    C'mon guys. He's just a regular dude so of course he uses rep like that rest of us. I think I've left similar rep with DC. Anyhow, thanks for those with positive comments in this thread. I'm getting used to it already.

    Any other tips?

    The reply with quote inserts a quick reply in the middle of the thread. It's kind of weird but makes replying easier.

    I gave Francis the heads up that it could be seen and told him thanks for the laughs regarding his rep showing, he got back to me and had a laugh and was cool about it, i dont think his worried and he didnt do anything wrong, he just left a few choice messages with his rep, thats not against the rules, but i would like the ability to pos or neg rep the same person more than once, sometimes 3 times a day like he does, and to think we were made feel bad about rep circles, but i suppose the admin needs a few lurks and perks, i had a feeling the admin and mods could do that and it looks like i was spot on
    But to say its unbelievable he still has a job is going a bit far guys, im sure he does everything for nothing and he didnt break any rules, so dont jump the gun guys....

    Lol. Vacation alert. Haha.

    New format is ok. I don't mind it. Changes always meet some resistance. In couple of days - we will have gotten used to it. No biggie.

    It also loads faster for me.

    Francis - WOW.
