New Software

I'm sure this is being worked on as I speak, but i've been browsing around the forums and noticed a couple things i thought i would bring some attention to.

- Some graphics not being loaded.
- Some posts were deleted? (I think everyone's post count is the same)
- Avitar's deleted? (I had to add mine back in)

Some questions i had were

- Do we still have access to our saved/inbox of private messages?
- Are we still able to check our past posts? (saved on one page)

Feel free to disreguard or delete this topic, as i'm sure an Administrator will post one of his own with more features/problems etc. listed.

everyone will have to reupload their avatar!! they were not transferred over. also everyone check your options in the user control panel, make sure that all the settings are correct, the new default settings may not be what you want

Yeah, i already scoured the User CP and changed my settings. How did you make your avitar so big. I thought it had to be 80x80?

mine might be more because im a mod. my PM list says 0 total, but when i click on it, under welcome "username", it shows 3 old ones, maybe all the PMs from the old site got carried into there? or maybe thats bc im a mod?

*Goes on strike about small avitars*

And title's under username's are non-existant. I don't remember ever seeing this software with them anyway.

Keep vocalizing your issues here. We'll try to get them addressed, trust me. There's things that need to be changed still, and I know it. I just wnated to get us on the new software ASAP.

For the avatars issue, it's only temporary. We'll be adjusting the sizing guidelines. Just give us a few days to get that squared away (although knowing Christian, it'll probably be done tonight).

PM's all should have been migrated, although it wouldn't surprise me if there was an issue or two here or there with them. You should be able to access them in the upper right hand corner of any page in the forums.

Time is off. It's not entirely a time zone issue. Not real sure what the problem is, but I'll see what I can do about getting it fixed.

No posts should have been deleted, but again, it could have been issues with the import. Sadly, I'm not going to go through and try to find missing posts, so they'll just have to be reposted.

As far as the X's, Christian needs to upload the theme/style again that he was using so we can get the images back. Luckily all he needs to do is upload it, and it should start working again. I blew away the site earlier today and rebuilt it (for the hundredth or so time now) to get things cooperating.

Avatars you guys already know about.

That thing where you can see all your posts is at the moment gone. You should be able to do an advanced search on just your username though and get posts from you without any problems.

As for the titles, you may be able to set your own. I don't remember how we have it configured. But, if you want, PM me, and I can set a custom one for you. That was one of the things that didn't make it because of the way the import was done.

Oh, and post counts are indeed screwed up. You probably have around double what you did on the old site. :D

Mine looks like it changed by about 20, but i happened to notice that Kasey had a post count of under 1000 erlier today and saw it jump up so high. I figured something was up.
