We are starting a major forum upgrade. We have been working on it for several weeks.the upgrade process will begin today (Tues 26th Feb 2019) in the afternoon

 In the morning we will be preventing any new registrations.

In the afternoon at about 14:30 we will be resetting the forum to "read only".

This will prevent any new posting. The idea will be to freeze the data at that point in time.

We will then take a copy of the forum and begin the conversion to the new platform.

We expect that the conversion process will take at least two days.

During that time the forum will be open for people to visit and to explore but it will not be possible to post new questions or to post replies or for people to register.

At some point on the Wednesday the existing forum will be replaced with the upgraded forum platform.

This also will be set to read only for a few hours whilst some of the initial rebuilding and indexing of data takes place.

The forum will then be set to "read/write" and people will be able to register, to post questions and to post replies.

However, the indexing process will take several days and so for a while some posts may appear to be incorrectly formatted, or they may not be available at all or they will not appear in forum searches.

As the indexing continues these problems will gradually disappear and we expect the process to be complete after a further three or four days – probably the Wednesday or possibly the Thursday.

You may also need to configure some aspects of your personal profile, upload a new avatar – et cetera.

 

We hope that all the data will be intact but please be prepared to come across problems – and in particular there may be attachments which are not available or don't seem to display properly.

Please let the site team know – but be patient. We are trying to convert 13 years worth of data and none of it is straightforward.

We hope that the final result will be a more modern platform, a more secure platform, and generally a better experience.

What a mess

 

The top two lines a wasted space  'why you should open a twitter account'

 

In your face tags that are just from the topic title - but largely meaningless without the rest

 

Muppet colouring

inc orange headlines - ORANGE! - high colour/low contrast eye strain material

 

For gods sake man.

 

 

 


I express my honestly held opinions - they are nothing more or less than that.

... Its just doing some due diligence that makes them seem unusual ...

 

Please don't assume what you see here is what I wrote - At least some of my posts HAVE been edited without my knowledge or agreement - or anything showing people they have been amended

Still lots of work to do. It hasn't been easy.

Where are the orange headlines?

Mobil version is needed, takes an age to load.

not all of us have andriod or ios, I use a windows phone. The page jumps around to load adverts in. I dont need to try another browser, I've tried E. Firefox and chrome which are all installed on my phone. Same outcome.

 

the colours are awful and clash.

Using firefox at the moment (and usually)

 

Actual writing is small and shunted over to the right alongside Poster name with huge icon with first letter of there name

I have a big T rather than my avatar

This in turn is shunted over to the right of the page by the  donate and twitter stuff at the top

So : little text shunted out the way with big gap (30% of screen) on left caused by donate/twitter stuff and poster name/circle with first letter taking up about 15-20% of the width of the screenSo just about half the page showing the actual (small) text in the posts

Lots of bright colours

Lots of big icons
Little text shunted out of the way

 

It actually looks like Fozzie Bears Muppets colouring book - but less fun.

 

Oh and the orange and red writing is top of bear garden

I haven't looked much further - my eyes hurt

 

looks a bit better on android chrome but the harder navigation and smaller screen makes it unworkable

We'll have a look and try and sort things out.

The size of the sidebar is a real nuisance

have you tried uploading a new Avatar? I'm a bit annoyed that the avatars didn't convert accross

Quote isnt editable (or anything as far as I can see) to pick the bit out I'm replying to

 

but when we moved from XP we spent days or weeks becoming familiar

 

Can't see new folk staying long enough to do that on a complex muppet colouring book

Surely given the nature of the site - it needs to be primarily EASY

LOL - actually is less intrusive when you replace the letter with a pic

 

No matter how horrible the picture ...

Please, for the love of god,  work on a new theme.  The default one is absolutely terrible.

Oh and you left the option on to allow posters to create their own ranks.

Just different.  Sure a few tweaks over the coming weeks, will resolve any issues.  Certainly seems quicker to use.

On Some pages the sticky posts take up whole of first page and you have to click on further pages to see posts.


We could do with some help from you.

Click on your name, you'll go to a page that looks a little like a Facebook profile page -

- from there you can upload a new picture / cover image .... 

(There should be a little image icon next to your existing S).

I think theres a bit too much clutter now.  Its a jumbled mess, despite trying to put things in a set order.

I've managed to upload my avatar at last by doing what Webby said, but it's gone blurry.

The reply/quote options aren't there either until you log in - means you cant just click on reply or quote on the post and have the login pop up - - you have to scoot all the way to the top to log in - then find the post down the page again

ROLLBACK
