Default Lets hear your thoughts on S247 Ver. 2

Hi all. Just wanted to know what everyone thinks of the new forum so far? I know there are some quirks and bugs, and we are getting them taken care of day-by-day, slowly but surely. Hopefully in a few weeks everything will be taken care of and the board will be "polished". Luckily though, none of the quirks seem to be real bugs or big-time problems, mostly just little pain in the ass type of crap lol. you may notice subtle differences in the way certain things look, but our main goal was to keep things basically the same as far as look and function, yet ADD more options and functionality.

There are alot of new options now, some of which you all probably havent even seen yet or gotten too. And some might not even be set up yet, or available. But either way, lets hear some thoughts!

Yes I noticed a little lag as well. i will look into this for you guys.

I am also aware that the new logo up top may be an issue, because its made for 1024x768 resolution. As it stands now, I am on a clients laptop at their house and they run higher res than that and I can see the logo is not fit to size properly. I will look into a solution.

Board looks great, seems fast enough to me after it has loaded, only quirk I've come across is the slider bar at the bottom of the screen, I'm using 1024x768 rez and most apps do not require any scrolling side to side, maybe it's the logo you mentioned JB? I dunno, just a guess......
Otherwise, it Rawks. I even figured out how to insert a pic.

Thanks guys.

Hmmm, Ed...you shouldnt see any sliders if you're using 1024x768. Thats definitely weird. What browser are you using? I would double check your res.

When you see a list of posting..Live via a search. that font size
for the "FORUM NAME" is humungus...

That cause the bloody thing to be wider than it needs to be...IE
the ScrollBar crap.

The scroll bar occurs on either Mozilla Firefox or IE...

Scrolling s*cks.

I haven't gone thru every link but some weren't working a few
days ago. But that doesn't bother me either... Get rid of those
apples though!


Make'em fish hooks! Blood Hooks! Something a little more fish oriented.

OK yeah, the Apples are queer lol. They were part of the "stock" theme. I'll fix that right now while I'm on here.

I am not getting any scrolling in Firefox, but I do see the font size is pretty damn bold for the forum names when searching. I still dont get scrolling though with resolution of 1024x768.

One obvious improvement is the storing of threads since last visit. These are available even if you've been kicked off.
Storing session Ids takes up a tremendous amount of space so it is in effect a resource monster, hence the sometimes slower speeds.
We will get it up to speed slowly but surely.
Terrific Job JB.
You will notice the count is down as well. This will change as we are reindexed and bookmarks are updated.
We will have to customize our own ranking sets.
