Folks - a few comments on the new site:

1. If I subscribe to a thread/forum, it processes the request and then dumps me into my profile page. Odd.

2. The times of posts seem to be 8 hours or so adrift.

3. Text in some of the posts is bleeding into the right hand graduated blue column making it hard to read. That might be my browser (IE 7) but I thought I'd point it out.

4. I seem to have lost my own moniker - I am no longer a red giant, admin or whatever - just a red cross :(

There are a few other smaller items but they can wait for now.

For the record, it takes a little while to get used to the new site but you guys have done a great job and I for one appreciate it. Well done and thanks for all your hard work.

Dave

Frank - click on the link in the left hand user menu "My Profile".

You should see two "panes" at the top of the page - hover over the "edit" pane and you should see three choices - one of which is to "update your image" - voila.

Note - if you click on "my profile" to the top of the screen, as opposed to the "my profile" in the left hand menu, you get two different things... Odd.

HTH

Dave,

I'll have a look at those issues over the next day or two.
Most of them seem fixable

Frank

I have changed your rights to publisher, so now if you click on the "Events" page you should see a link for adding a new event.
I have setup 2 categories for the events calendar they are "Society Meetings" and "Star Parties" but I can add more if you wish.

If anybody else wants to add events, just send me a PM and I'll upgrade their rights to allow them to add events to the calendar

Regards

im having a problem, where the posts are going outside the boundary of the white piece of the site, making some text unreadable. here is an example as my description is terrible:



im using IE 7, Vista enterprise that has been updated just last night on a monitor of resolution 1280 * 1024.

new site is wicked apart from this, well done.

To add to the list:

*Previous Stickies and Announcements have now become ordinary threads and are thus lost to their place in time.
*(Multi)page indicators are unspaced i.e. "StartPrev12345NextLast".

Addendum:

*Avatars in the upload directory declared to be no larger than 100pixels wide, yet they are all resized smaller than that in the forums.

Feedback:

1. I'm finding response time is much slower than it used to be :(

2. On the old site, you could get email alerts for new topic posts. How do I do this for the new site? (I get the emails for new posts to existing topics I've subscribed too).

Dave,

We have done some optimizations on the forum today so it should be better than yesterday.
Hopefully we can find a few more optimizations to make it faster but we probably won't be able to make it as fast as the older boards but we do have alot more features to offer, so there is a bit of trade off

Hi,

We have partially fixed the IE6/IE7 issue except that images that are too large for the page throw off the widths. We are still working on a fix for that.

Ranks should all be fixed now.

Another issue fixed: The time of a post is changed from "Post since" to the "Time of Post"
Timezones have been set to GMT for all users, users can change their timezones individually in their profiles.

Addendum

*Make the

box a different colour shade to seperate its text from the body of the post.
*When replying to posts, layout become slightly too large right-side of screen i.e. as if too large an image is included somewhere. Appears fine when I go back in to edit the same reply/post.

We have fixed the IE6/7 problem of the forum looking messed up especially with large images, however as Seanie as said, the problem is still present when replying to a post where there is a large image.
We are a few steps closer to getting it completely fixed now

That time issue is fixed now, I had use %m (which is for month) instead of %M (which is for minute)

Hi Guys,

I was trying to update my profile and I got a message saying that my user name was invalid. It seemed to be complaining about the space. Any thoughts?
