Run in circles, scream and shout!

We seem to be lacking in smilies here.

I like the fact that I can close the window down on the right side and hide the avatar pix that way. Makes it look more like an application I might have open at work. :D

Well done on the switchover! And the RP I post in arrived all in one piece, so I don't have to growl and gripe and re-post things. ;)

I'm not sure what you mean?

Well done to Jude for all the hard work. You did an excellent job. Thank you! *imagine cheers smiley inserted here*

Avatars are there now, and on the left :), but I wish the size of the profile/avatar section wouldn't vary from one user two another. Better that the whole thing stretches a bit according to the largest avatar in the thread, than that the eye has to jump back and forth from post to post.


Edit: Uhm, well, half the avatars are here. But I guess the rest will be following soon. ;)

You need to upload your avatar. I had to do so to get mine.

In regards to the avatar section being different widths, Hall of Fire is the same way but it's less noticeable. It doesn't have that heavy line separating the avatar section from the post section.

Regarding the width thing, I don't know if that's specific to the skin, or to the new phpbb3 version. I guess we'll figure things out as we go along...

**pokes head in, wondering if anyone will remember her...Sheesh, I forgot all about this place...**

So, new digs, eh? Nice.

Some smilies seem to be available, but not the full complement.

W00T!! Making my first post here!

One minor complaint: I find the typeface on the index page rather hard to read compared to the old board.

Yes, us old fogeys hate change.... :blackeye:

Otherwise, looks goooood! Lots of COLOURS to play with, and I like that there is a larger array of smiliies viewable without clicking on the 'view more smilies' tab Well, there WiLL be more viewable once admin gets them uploaded... :D

Old Begonia! Yes, I remember you! :)

And hi to everyone else, too!

Sunny, I have the option on the top right of my screen to change the font size. I'm not sure if that will help for the index, but you could try it. Do you see an A with a down caret and an up caret next to it?

Jude, I exported our smilies from the old board but can't seem to find a way to upload them here. :scratch:

There might be a way to set a standard width for the avatar area, too. I seem to remember seeing that in the admin panel, perhaps....

ETA: Oooh, cool! It notified me a post that had been made while I was typing this! And I added some friends, too, in the User Control Panel. I'm anxious to see what that does. (You can add foes, too. :Q)

I just discovered that "foes" thing too - evidently you can choose to add people to this list, and their posts will not be fully visible to you by default. :Q

Well, it might be one way to cause less drama.. ;)

Hi Old Begonia! Don't be a stranger!
