Hey all. As you may have already noticed, we've upgraded to the next generation of vBulletin software.. So far, this is the public beta and we may encounter a bug or two somewhere along the line. If you happen to notice anything, please let me know..

Otherwise, there will be a new release very shortly - which will include graphical changes. I hope you find the new features interesting and enjoyable...

Sincerely,

Sal Collaziano

Yeah, its up in the air for me too. Everything's threaded now, and so you have to reply to the post you mean to reply to... though the message display is flat. Even those little selectors to switch between Linear, Hybrid, Threaded... they work, but bleh.

Other than that, it uh.. works. (-:

I know it's way too late to mention this, but Sal, did you ever look at phpBB? http://www.phpbb.com
You COULD just hit the regular POST REPLY button instead of using the quick reply. That way you wouldn't have to select any particular message... And yes, I know about PhpBB.. I do like it - but there's just nowhere near as many Admin options.. I run a PhpBB... I've been running message boards since the 80's. :p

I wish we could just start typing in the quick reply box, rather than to click the button on the individual posts...... Other than that, I think its ok... I dont really care....
It's like that with the Quick Reply BECAUSE of the other options (Hybrid, Threaded). The only reason I'm even leaving it like this is because there are actually a ton of people who like it that way. I'd rather have all options available to attract the most attention possible. It's only a click... - Thought I don't exactly like it either...

Well. I don't wanna go too off-topic here - but I ran a C-Net 10.0 and 11.7a.. I used to modify them like crazy... My first modem was a 300 baud - I thought the 1200 baud modem was fast. Remember disk space back then? :p Yes, I loved the BBS.. I still think Websites should be more like 'em.. Atleast for the Administrator...

Otherwise - without going too far off-topic - let's get some more opinions on this new system. I want to clear up any questions and hear more comments - good or bad... :D

Sal,

I liked an old feature that allowed me to "search all new posts since my last visit" Is that going to be reinstated? I do like the last posted time given in the time ago format...it saves me from doing the math. If you can get this software to predict the next stock to buy...that would be a big plus.....it has to be an ironclad guarantee though. I've already lost enough money.
The arrow-images on the top right are only temporary - they will be replaced with the next upgrade (graphical - and coming very soon). The second arrow is "View new posts" since your last visit. :)

Sal,
Apparently, I got on right after you put this new system up. The search "new" posts didn't work, as you an others have pointed out, the "quick reply" doesn't work (which I use 99% of the time), and I think the threads look bulkier and therefore longer to scroll down through. Maybe it's me but I just don't like it. I guess like everything else, I just have to get used to it. :rolleyes:
Are you still unable to "quick reply"? It's the icon at the bottom right of each post - in yellow - right in-between the "edit" and "reply" button...

All those other added options will come in short time.. I think we'll probably have the new graphical interface first - but the rest will not be far behind.. It's really all up from here.. We'll have all the old features plus many more...
