Please let me know if you see any issues. Still working on some things. Lots of behind the scene changes. So any suggestions and feedback is appreciated.

The site is back up, I am working on a bunch of stuff, but the forums are back online. Thanks.

Truncated quoted messages!

The designer has gone through the entire list and he has a solution for the issues and showed me a bunch of changes to the test site. I think we have almost every issue addressed (especially the white

Whoa, it sucks.  lol

all the page quick links for a thread are on the side now instead of on the bottom of the thread like they were before..  Thus making a series of huge boxes for a thread.

So constructive criticism is a lot more likely to be considered, just saying. Saying something sucks doesn't help much.

The theme had to be completely rebuilt. I can move anything anywhere. Please let me know what you mean about the quick links, happy to move them back just not following what you mean.

Thanks.

Thanks - I didn't get a chance to check mobile yet.

Is this tapatalk or our mobile version? Meaning just going to the site URL on a phone and checking the site that way?

A lot of it feels nice, however profile pictures are off-center (or possibly large) and clipping over roles as well. Also the spacing between threads with multiple pages feels off.

Wish you luck with fixing and upgrading things! Doesn't seem like an easy task.

It was a major release from Invision so we had to rebuild the theme (skin) completely. We should be able to move \ align anything.  Can you post a screen shot of what you are referring to?  Is this on mobile or desktop?  

Thanks.

One thing that is definitely different is the top right sidebar when you open a thread. They present things differently in this version, showing a thread recap, when it was created, last reply along with top poster info and popular days \ posts. Images are indexed on the bottom as well.

Here is what it looks like for me, please let me know what is clipping over when you look at it, thanks.

The website looks pretty messed up on my browser (I use Opera).

LOL - thanks.  It looks like the new theme only applied as default to the Moderator group. I just reset it so you should see the new (rebuilt theme).  Please let me know if anything looks different for you now.

Yes this was definitely the wrong theme being loaded. I am going to try and set the old themes as inactive.  I think that was what everyone was seeing.

It's really a very small thing, barely worth your time I think, but since you asked....is there any way we could possibly clean up and consolidate the emoji list? The generic emojis are fine I guess but there were a lot of older custom ones that are still available and I think that's really cool but some of them are broken and appear as broken images. If possible could we restore or remove the broken ones while keeping the ones that work? ::GoJets:

Yes, I just made a not of this. I can definitely do that. I will take a look and if you don't mind I might PM you for suggestions after I clean it up a bit.

Okay, now I completely understand why you laughed. I didn't realize the old theme was showing. That was definitely broken. I was looking at this thing going I now there will be feedback, I am open to change but what sucks lol.

What you were seeing definitely sucked, my bad. Hopefully the new theme loaded for you now.

We can implement one if people want it. It ends up being more work on upgrades and costs more because we pay for the custom updates twice. So I would need to make sure a lot of people wanted it to make sure it was worth it, thanks.

Thanks. Someone asked for the quotes to be rolled up last week. The new version definitely does that. Have to hit expand to see the entire quoted post now. Saves some desktop space.

More stuff:

I like the lower banner menu and the toggle for the bigger font. As a young man I don’t need a bigger font but  I’m glad there’s an option for all the old guys on the site.
