Quoted from Fatsquatch:

I'm cool with everything and aint gonna be one of those "Changes! Gah! I'm skeered!" guys, but I really...really...hate those multicolored sub-forum indicators in the thread index. It just looks so cluttered and gaudy. I'd rather new and read threads be devoid of any color indicators, with just threads that have new replies having the green indicator.

No problem! That's what the forum settings are for!

Hey Robin, Thanks for all the hard work. Trying to upload a photo stalls until the next post on a different thread, which is where it shows up.

#153 6 years ago

I can no longer start a thread with this new site. When I click to start a thread, it says that the last post was 6 months ago and that I don't have enough karma to revive the thread. Anyone else having that issue?

#154 6 years ago

I can log in now!

Little bug found in the "Activity" page. Still shows old karma point totals in the description. No big deal, just in case you werent aware.

Love the new features and how you have crammed more info into the same amount of space without making it feel cluttered.

#155 6 years ago

The eror triggered is meant for posting to old threads (necromancing old topics) and obviously not for creating new topics.

There are some more weird issues with starting new topics and I'm afraid the server update didn't fix these. I'm gonna have to dive into this and see what is causing these problems.

For starters, which link do you use to start a new thread? Should be this one:
http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/?new=1

And which browser are you using? Probably doesn't matter but just to be sure..

#156 6 years ago

Wait a minute! My karma points just went from 4.3 mil to 3.3 mil. THATS IT!!! I'm quitting pinball forever!!!!!!!

Well, maybe until I get off work. Maybe....

#157 6 years ago

Robin, when I click that link you gave above, I still get that errror message about not having enough karma. No matter where I try to start a topic, it gives me that message. Using Firefox and also tried on my iPad Safari.

You're right. I have removed this text for now.

The new numbers are still settling in, today is crazy karma day. Everything will be better as the numbers get some rest later on...

Ok thanks, I'm gonna check now what could be causing this.

#161 6 years ago

Works now, Robin. Thanks!

#162 6 years ago

Excellent work and thanks for including me in beta!

#163 6 years ago

Great!

Okay, I'm calling it a day now. Please everyone, go easy on the site! The server is still fresh and she needs to get adjusted to the smell of novus and sweaty pinball players. Not to mention all the beer fumes filling this place. And to think it's only wednesday!

Okay, good night (oh, and don't get nightmares about your Karma points)

#164 6 years ago

Great job! So far so good! Much faster. Thanks.

#165 6 years ago

Sweeeeeet! Love the new look!!!! Fantastic job Robin!!!!!!!!!!

#166 6 years ago

So is there a PM bug? I just typed in a long message and get "mandatory parameter message_text not specified" pop up and the message won't send.

Nicey-nice.

Good show, sir!

#168 6 years ago

Interesting new look. Good work Robin.

#169 6 years ago

Looks great so far. Thanks for all you do Robin!

What happened to the floating top banner?

If I want to click on "Forum" for a refresh, I now have to manually scroll back to the top of the page.

#171 6 years ago

I think that the green new post indicators / blue unread thread with white star indicator should be moved back to the right hand side of the Topics column for ease of viewing. That's a lot of colors on the left side and the green new post indicators are much harder to spot as quickly as before the new format was implemented.

#172 6 years ago

any one else haveing trouble sending a PM? server says manditory paramiter not filled i am confused was able to post on fourm just no pm capabilities thanks FREDDY

That option is available in the settings.

Nice!

Thanks much,

Seems breaking up my message into two separate messages worked. There might be a text limit bug.

Awesome thanks, now it looks great!

#177 6 years ago

Looks great !! Thank you !!

#178 6 years ago

Robin, appreciate all the hard work but I wanted to share that I'm not a fan of the new topics page. The icons on the left and the change in colors for topics is very distracting. I prefer the old setup. Sorry, I respect and appreciate the site but disagree with that change.

Edit: My bad, there's a setting. I changed my settings and am happy again!

Thanks. That worked for me too.

#180 6 years ago

#181 6 years ago

You can change it in the forum settings to whatever your personal preference may be. Personally, I left the sub topic indicator on the left and moved the new posts indicator to the right. Feels much less cluttered to me. Your mileage may vary.

Then turn off colored icons in the settings?

#185 6 years ago

Been awhile so I thought I'd pop in and see what's up. Good job on the site Robin, as always!

#186 6 years ago

Yes I agree looks very nice

#187 6 years ago

It will take some getting used to

#190 6 years ago

working well here...nice ...seems faster

#193 6 years ago

Nice job Robin

#194 6 years ago

You can say that again!

#195 6 years ago

Nice job Robin and thanks for all your efforts to provide us with a site that does not get taken over by the trolls.

#196 6 years ago

nice job, thanks Robin. I would have liked a "back to top' option for threads so when you get to the bottom you don't have to scroll all the way back up to navigate, otherwise love the new look.

#197 6 years ago

Looks and works GREAT!

Thanks Robin for all you do.

#198 6 years ago

Looks like only posts from the last year have been migrated to the new server?
