As you may have seen, we have upgraded the forum software to a newer version.

The servers are rebuilding the forum in the background while trying to keep everything running. The forum is quite large. There may be glitches (like sigs not showing up). More than likely there will be many new features, issues and problems while the new software beds in.

Please give us a few days to sort things out before posting complaints. Once the software is finished we will be happy to deal with problems that arise.

Thank you for your patience :)

Things will be different and things will feel weird for awhile. Give yourself a chance to get used to the new system and enjoy your stay :)

Signatures should now be showing up. I found the switch to turn them on B)

Now I'm looking for a setting to turn avatars back to square :/

God ... I hope NOT! I was hoping that I left the 90s with their flashing and flickering on the screen behind me.

You Know i was born in the early 80's, When all the gaming and the videos and media spread wildly.

Its where i was found my self experience this Art like a child. And the 90's was so Inspiring so it effect on me and the future, not just for me off course.

So, Its like you you will say: " Salvador Dali was Insane, and had a Psychosis: I hope we not going to see his students after century coming to Make this kind of..."

But, that's your opinion and i respect that.

Nope. You can't compare a great artist and his work with some animated avatars in a forum. Permanent animations of this kind are simply annoying.

Edit: For a while (some hours) I use a new, animated version of my avatar. As you can see, It's possible but annoying.

You know the definition of Avatar is: Personal Image that give expression to Users in The Social Media and Games. and, The Embodiment of something Abstract or Imaginary.

In Hinduism the Avatar is the Realization of Divinity.:mrred:

So, you know now what My Avatar.:mrcyan:

Do we have to talk seriously about definitions? Then I ask you whether you know the definition of "annoying". I thought that you respect my opinion? Enough said, I think.

Yes i understand what you mean IRON.

The bottom line is that is very difficult to watch screen full of Animated images. your eyes is rolling crazy.  you think you're lost. you can't even focus in one thing.

My suggestion to Admins,  is maybe they could Host a competition for 1 best Animated Avatar every time they will choose. And the chosen will get the permission to add his Animated Avatar, and we all will get something that not annoying definitely.

We all be Happy.:)

Just popped in and surprise surprise! All change.

I`ll have to have a proper nose around before I decide either way . Only thing that bothers me so far is the lack of a proper separation line between the avatars on the left and the text .

Yes, it's as though the page is too big for the screen.  A vertical line would be nice on the right side between the Threads and the latest posts :ViewRulers:.

It seems every sentence is a new paragraph now?:/ (on existing pages)

I'm not looking forward to mending my gallery and plugin pages but I'm sure that's nothing compared to the extra work the admins will have to do.;)

Difficult to navigate on Mobile Phone if you just want to check out what's going on. I liked also to see new posts on the home page without having to click tabs first.

Also seems a bit bright to read on PC / Laptop, or did i clean my monitor too much / :lol:

Edit - Pressing the Enter key, shifts down a one line space when posting, Shift + Enter is the only way to type directly under the line you just type. (if that makes sense)

Bugs perhaps:

#1 Won't allow me to post using Microsoft Edge (Yes Windows is up to date) Had to resort to chrome to post this.
#2 Profiles can be viewed without logging in.
#3 As Drew says, pressing enter creates a one line space between sentences. 

Also have to agree, it seems very bright to read, not good for me or other members who have issues with light sensitivity. 5 minutes and I have a serious headache :( 

What purpose is the Downloads tab ? Also why is there a Gallery tab, when there is also a Gallery link on the home page ?

I don't mean to be "duh", but I can't find a way to edit my sig...I'd like to fix it...there are too many empty line spaces....:/
Agree with DrewDale and nitenurse; the spacing may need to be fixed or you will have a lot of wasted real estate.

In the upper right corner of every page, click on your name and choose "Account settings".  You should see your signature in there.

I edited it for you.  Hope you like it.

The only workaround for now is Shift+Enter.

Also noticed the lack of "top of page" arrow at the foot of the page.
