    Blue on white is hard to see; hope you didn't pay somebody for that brainfart. This is an example of where 'continuous improvement' hits the wall of 'if it aint broke'. What a disaster.

    Let me get this. We're supposed to see blue on white as highlighted? Epic fail; but it isn't just MTBR. Lots of dysfunctional websites and labelling going on at the moment. Maybe 'Readable' will be the Next Big Thing. Who could have known?

    I notice that when I go from the general forum to my gallery I get logged out every time and have to log in again. The lack of a "Keep me logged in" setting is a nuisance.

    I was never a fan of vBulletin 4. That was when vB went to crap. vB 5 isn't even looking like it's going to save the software. vB 3 is legendary in the forum world and even to this day there's no reason to part with it in my opinion. But it's too late for that now, so with that being said, I was unable to use the quick reply box on my iPhone to make this post. Maybe it's something that could be looked into.

    Today's browsers (mobile and non-mobile) do an excellent job of conforming sites to available screen size. I suggest you default your site to either a wider fixed width, or 'wide' as the default setting.

    New visitors will not figure out how to change from fixed to wide. I'm guessing the fixed width will be a turn-off to many new visitors.

    If you could make your site 'fully responsive', that would be pretty cool.

    Pretty good transition thus far. Took a little while to discover the "fixed" width and change to "wide."
    Attachments work fine, uploading files works fine. Able to find the subscribed threads tab so all is well.
    It takes a little while to adjust to a new look and new locations for tabs and such, but it's fun seeing which people accept change well and which ones don't. Always good entertainment.

    Welcome to the Upgraded Mtbr Forums - How To Video!

    Did anybody else think "Welcome to the Upgraded Mtbr Forums - How To Video!" was about how to use a GoPro?

    I did...

    Made several unnecessary posts in NorCal before I found this thread...

    If it had read "Welcome to the Upgraded Mtbr Forums - How To's (and video)" I might have gone there first.

    Minor snivel...

    I'm basically happy with the changes. It shouldn't take too long to get used to. I have one comment though. I would like to see a change made to the "Quick Navigation" button. On the old forum if I wanted to go back to the sub-forum I'm on, I would press the name. In this case "Site Feedback/Issues" and would go directly to the sub-forum. Now when I click the button I get the full list of forums, I have to find the forum I'm on and click on it again. Previously the arrow would bring up the menu and the name would go back to the sub-forum.
    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    I'm having the same issue with Chrome. I haven't closed the browser, just navigated away. On return, I'm logged out again.

    A lot more screen space would be available for posts & ads if there were an option to turn of displaying all the user options on the left.

    For those of you remarking on the pixelated photos, it takes time to run through the whole forum to correct millions of photos.

    See Francois's explanation here.

    "reply to thread"
    I don't like that the first option is the "quick reply". If I click "reply to thread" twice I get the option to include a subject line, and a message area.

    From a user standpoint, I am not seeing the advantages so far. The "quick relply," pixalated photos are a turn-off. As is the narrow view.

    Long time users may mess around with the setting, but people new the site may not.

    Speaking of the quick reply box, it's not very user friendly to not have the BBCode buttons there anymore (links, images, bold, colors, sizes, smilies, etc.). I'm not sure if that is intended or if it is just another setback that comes with vB 4.

    May I suggest installing Stopforumspam on vbbuilitin.org? It will cross check every new IP/Email through Stopforumspam's data base and deny access to those who are confirmed spammers.

    I definitely prefer the old version. Don't see this as an improvement.

    Pixelated images are being fixed but this will take time. The old photos are being reprocessed and resized at the moment. New photos are done right now so they'll be fine. It will take about a week to crunch through the million photos but we are starting with the most recent ones first and going back from there.

    You can change your personal settings to WYSIWYG editor and that will give you all the features (code, smilies, etc...)

    Safari doesn't support WYSIWYG so the quick reply box has nothing there (in Safari). I'm using my girlfriend's MacBook though. On my own PC I use Chrome, which I know does support WYSIWYG, so I guess it's not that big of a deal for me (but might be for Safari-only users).
