Is it supposed to still look like facebook?



Is it blue, or black for you?

If blue hold dont CTRL and press F5

Otherwise yes.

While you're messing around with the colors: just in case you like to get back the original MMMV-grey for the background, it was #313131.

I really have to figure out the stuff here and get comfortable with it. Might take a while...

Edit: the quotes look a little strange. There is no border around them or anything. Hard to tell where the quote starts/ends.

Edit: And those "edited by" highlights are very highlighting, right? OK, I stop moaning and start to acclimatize. :whistling:

  • Get the arcade back??
  • Fix images (emoticons, staff badge, forum icons etc)
  • Do something clever around the RSS feeds/redirects for MMHQ/MMC etc
  • Remove pointless nav links (ie Minimate Multiverse AND forums links up top)
  • Debate what to do over sidebar on main page
  • Fix god awful quote colour and styling
  • Restore spoiler tags
  • Decide what to do with the vote up/vote down options
  • Kill the calendar at the top
  • Spotlight new features (look at the bar down there...Download, print, mail, tweet, dig etc)

Yeah this rep thing and voting up down posts is probably something Ill turn off this weekend when I sort stuff out, its not exactly all the amazing, unless anyone can think of a compelling use for it....

Guess i could merge the trading feedback thread with the rep system and make it so only admins can +/- rep...

Wow. It's going to take a little time to get used to the new look & feel, but the new features will make up for it, I'm sure :)

Thanks for doing this, Ady. Much appreciated.

That thought came across my mind too, but honestly, that sounds like it would be too complicated and not worth it. I'd still look at feedback at the current thread.

Anyway, I'm just having fun with the forum as it is. Take your time, Ady! You are doing it on your own free time and as long as the forum is still around, we're fine. This isn't like the AA forum being down for months type thing.

However you end up working all the details out, it's cool that you're putting in all this effort just to give us a better board experience *thumbs up*

personally, I like the changes so far ;)

and a quick question for clarification: is the voting things up/down akin to the "like" feature on facebook?

Wow. Even without any app, the new forum is waaaay better on my phone. A much cleaner, easier interface by far.

Initial thoughts... do not like!
Less initial thoughts... it's growing on me!

The more I look around and play with it, the more familiar it all feels.
Good work everyone involved in the upgrade.
