Mike,
Great Job! I'm sure your work will be appreciated by all.

What scares me is how comfortable people are doing nothing about it.

I notice that when you click on the persons's name who made the last post in the "Last Post" column you get their profile, which you also get in their "Profile" column and is redundant then.  Shouldn't it go to their last post on that thread?

I miss your "Today's Posts" quick link.

Looking good otherwise.  Even tried out the SpellCheck and it says my initials are wrong, but there is probably a good reason not to add an "ADD" function (Too many possibilities of corrupting it if you did.)  "Ignore" works just fine.

Yeah, today's posts is gone, but this is a fairly close replacement.

Not sure *exactly* where you're talking about clicking on a person's name, but if you click on the name of the topic instead, that'll take you to their post.

Also, if you use G.W. instead, the spell checker will let it pass. ;)


Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming.

I also found that you included a similar feature on the "User Info" box with your "Show unread posts since last visit" link.

Yeah it looks really good. Does this take up less bandwidth/space as the old one, as you were hoping it would?

gonna take some getting used to, I can barely tell the difference between the 'post status' icons.

overall improvement, I love the 'posts since last visit' and 'recent replies to your posts' links.

Good job Mike, We all appreciate what you do here. :D

Scarlino, time will tell on the bandwidth issue, but I think this will take up less.

It's definitely going to be easier on system resources (memory, CPU, etc).

Just noticed, is there no more 'rate member' function, I don't know, maybe I'm just blind.

I always liked being able to give a 5 rating to someone who contributes positively.

That's been replaced by the Promote/Demote system. Next to everyone's post, there's a block like this:

Quote
Rating: +0/-0
[Promote] [Demote]

Now you just click on Promote to give them a good rating, or Demote to give them a bad one.

It's different from the last system, as it shows both positive and negative "votes" (as opposed to just an average). Also, you could only rate someone once in the last system, but now you can rate them multiple times (you have to wait an hour between ratings, to prevent repeat ratings...)

there is no promote/demote, that is to what I was refering.

Yep, you were right... I hadn't (yet) granted that permission to general users... It's now fixed. :)

Thanks!

Mike,

Is there any way to increase the font size of the quote boxes

I like it so far but I miss the option on the last version that had the most recent topics on the left side.

Yeah, that's true... both options aren't here. However the "last x days" option was designed to lighten the load on the server, and that's now less of an issue (so all are displayed by default...)

Nice, I like it.  Looks really good.

One question though, is the RSS feed dead, or did the URL just change?

Still working on the RSS feed. I didn't know anyone else was using it. :)

I'll post when I get that one figured out, but it's broken right now. :(
