Thanks for all of the hard work guys.
Okay, first Steyr_AUG, and now Evadd's Michelle Jenneke avatar no longer dances? I'm afraid we will have to go back.
all good now, thanks.
I do not know if anyone other than me used the usercp page as a bookmark for the site, but it still resolves as the old site with the “we will be back soon” message. I checked it just moments ago.
I'm just going to put a catch-all in for any PHP outside of the ones which I am explicitly redirecting. Thanks for the call out.
the color pallet makes some of the lines and blocks very difficult to differentiate, is there a way to adjust them?
I too find the pastel colors difficult the navigate through, especially that thin blue line between the posts. Seems like the colors need to be adjusted to allow for easier visual interpretation.
Is there a way to go back to the old color scheme? Browsing on my phone I am not a huge fan of the blue. Thanks.
Edit: I also liked how the usernames used to be to the left of the posts, now they are above each post...
Miss seeing the Trader Ratings. It is a good tool to use when buying.
Thanks to Derek and sHORTY and anyone else who's working on the upgrade. We know you're just trying to make the place better!
I do agree with some of the "issues" mentioned. But I also know that you guys are probably already well aware and will be making tweaks over the next couple weeks to dial things in.
One thing I'll mention regarding the classified sub forums - In the previous version, when you clicked into the Handguns sub forum, for example, each ad had a thumbnail photo to the left of it (if the seller had photos in their ad). Those thumbnails are now gone. Hopefully this is something that can be brought back?
The thumbnails were a quick and easy way to determine whether or not I wanted to click into the ad to check it out or to simply move on. Without the thumbnails, I feel like I have to click into EVERY ad to see if there are any photos, etc.
What are you browsing with?
Chrome on the phone, request desktop. It is laid out like normal. Just in pastel.
On the list - we're working on it.
Knew it! You guys are the best!

Thanks for getting the site back and running, although the previously mentioned welding helmet sounds pretty good right now as well as reading glasses I didn’t think I needed LOL.
I guess the change is good and here I go - adapting
I hope they not only bring it back, but add some more words. I'm no wuss, but there are kids who read this also you know.
Go look at some other forums. I'm sure they are working on perfecting it, rather than tweaks here and there to more commentary.
Here is another forum which might be similar to what we now have here:
(no guarantees, and this was just from a quick google on xen forum etc.)
One thing I would like to have back is the quick LOGOUT at the top of the page, which is handy for many different reasons.
Would that include the thread preview as well?
Can you expand on your question? I'm not sure what you're referring to with regards to the thread preview.
Much easier to post pics. I like it.
Looks like a reboot or something just happened.
I was getting that too.
Whoa! Looks like the new software dug up some old members! Welcome back.
These are not the droids we were looking for. I guess I'll move on now.
When you hover your mouse over a thread title, the old forum would show a popup preview of content from the first post in the thread (I think this is what he's referring to).
I just tried it now and it works for me!
“BUT THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN!!”
Or maybe parents should monitor their kids a little better if they don’t want them swearing? Frankly I like the lack of censoring and hope it stays.
I hate change
How do I delete old PMs? You could check a bunch and then there was a "Delete" choice but now I don't see anything like that. You can still check a bunch of PMs but that seems to be it. Apologies if it was already covered.
Is there a way to not display avatars? Thank you.
I have to sign in every time even though I check "keep me signed in box". Minor issue.
I've seen that with the prior software too and the advice was to flush the cache in your browser and try again. It seems to work for most. But the problem isn't really related to the software change. Give it a try.
