    Hi Pinsiders!

    It's a big day because, well... it just is

    For the past 12 months or so, I have been working very hard on a big site update. Today, phase one of that update was released: a huge forum backend update. I have rewritten large parts of the (aged) forum code, which enables me to extend and build on the Pinside platform for years to come. After months of testing with a nice group of beta testers the forum rewrite is now ready for the final test: You! So please keep an eye out for bugs and let me know (here or via PM) if something doesn't work properly.

    New Pinside logo

    Today also brings a new Pinside logo. No one less than Jean-Paul de Win (http://www.jp-design.nl/), the motion graphics designer and artist for games like Wizard of Oz, The Hobbit, Dialed In, Pirates and The Big Lebowski has stepped up and given the logo a big refresh. Thanks JP!

    PS: A lot more stuff was worked on and is (almost) ready to be released. In phases 2 and 3 of the site update (likely next week), there will be more substantial features unveiled. Stay tuned!

    Awesome, all the hard work is much appreciated.

    Quoted from pin2d:

    Love the new photos!

    Yes, I almost forgot!

    I got in touch with Charles Acosta, who really makes incredible pinball photos. He has agreed to share his photos for the Pinside header.

    Be sure to check out his work (and the full photos) at https://pinballphotos.com.

    What's more, from now on, the header bar is open for photo submissions. So if you made an incredible photo that would fit nicely with the other photos - send me a PM!

    Might just be my Chrome browser, total posts are changing but since my last visit count shows 0...

    for the new logo... why not make one of the dots on the I a pinball?

    #12 20 days ago

    Would love to be able to choose to not see certain vendors in the marketplace.

    #14 20 days ago

    I fear change.

    Why do you think I’m into pinball.

    #15 20 days ago

    Oh snap. Better hoard all the Pinside merch with the old logos and sell the shirts for like $100 a pop.....! They'll be the new LE!!!!!

    Love the new logo, Robin!

    #16 20 days ago

    Looks great but I think a major convenience feature is either gone or I can’t find it.

    When you come back to a thread with X amount of new posts the clickable option that takes you right to where you left off is gone I think. So now do we have to guess where the 126 new posts start on what page and go find it manually where we left off in the thread? Hopefully I’m just missing where to click to jump to the new posts. Hope that makes sense what I’m trying to explain haha. Looks great though!!

    #17 20 days ago

    Ok I think i figured it out from reading another thread. The yellow bar is a bookmark now. So that replaced the clickable feature I’m referring to. Just have to get used to the bookmark now haha.

    Awesome thanks! You rock. Looking good

    Awesome update, thank you for all of your hard work on this!

    Quoted from Rondogg:

    Second this! I'm usually willing to drive up to ~4 hours for the right game, so my search radius usually reflects that. However, that also puts a certain unnamed vendor (who just places ads and contributes nothing to the forums) in my search radius, and my results are then just littered with every NIB Stern from them.

    There have long been plans to move all NIB game sellers out of the Marketplace classifieds section and into their own section "new games". i hope to implement this soon.

    Yup, that was a bug. Thanks for mentioning it

    Now working again!

    #23 20 days ago

    A couple of things not working right for me on my iphone. The forum tab takes you back to front page but to the topic you just looked at not top of front page. Also after reading a thread and new posts made in it, it doesn't jump to new post but beginning of thread.

    #24 20 days ago

    Robin. First a huge thanks for all you do. Like I shared with you at TPF ... I am a member on many enthusiast forums (guns, cars, watches, you name it) and Pinside is by a wide margin the absolute best forum site in the world!

    You should be proud

    BTW my background is fine arts and design. Your new logo is stunning!

    No prob! Thanks for fixing it so fast!!

    Did PPS send a letter saying you can't use the Junkyard pinball art for the logo anymore?

    New logo and forums look great.

    Yes, seeing this too. Working on a fix.

    Thanks! And a big hand to Jean-Paul for his help fine-tuning / refreshing the logo!

    Junk Yard? What? Who?

    Formatting issue.

    #29 20 days ago
    Quoted from KoolFingers:

    The forum tab takes you back to front page but to the topic you just looked at not top of front page.

    I have made some tweaks, the front page should now only scroll/jump back to the last clicked topic (marked with yellow background) if you use the back button within 10 minutes of entering a topic AND if the page hash contains the statekeeper marker (page hash starts with #sk). So clicking on the forum should not trigger the jumpback because then the #sk is missing. I hope that makes any sense.

    Quoted from jwilson:

    Formatting issue.

    That's actually by design. I have decided to cap the height of blockquotes. Clicking the blockquote will expand it fully.

    #30 20 days ago

    Yup, all working now. Let you know if I find any others.

    #31 20 days ago

    OK, sometimes the Topics list on the left does not show up. When logged off it is there all the time.

    #32 20 days ago

    I Like It !!!! Nice Job!

    Quoted from robin:

    It's not a good design if you have to explain it. It looks like it's cut off by accident. At least the old tab style made it more clear.

    Also, the bug where it doesn't update the unread when you click back is now not just on the front page, but all the sub pages as well. This is Chrome on Mac.

    #34 20 days ago

    I can't see any of the separate forum lists on the left side.

    I can see them on IE

    Hmm. I'm on IE and the left side is blank.

    Sub-Forums are missing for me also.

    #38 20 days ago

    My bad if we are talking about here, I can only see them on the main page.

    #39 20 days ago

    very small bug with PMs.

    When someone send you a PM, the little envelope number changes to show you how many unread PMs. You click to go read the PM and the number does not go back down till after you exit the message and refresh your inbox. Likely just some sort of refresh error and this is super minor. I just know some like to have even the small stuff reported.
