Its here! The big upgrade you have all been waiting for (er, well, fubar has been waiting for...)!

If you can spare a few minutes of your day, please drop by the new test forums at http://216.215.238.193/test/ . If all goes well in the next day or two i will upgrade the live forums to the latest software / layout.

Im looking for good / bad comments on color, features, layout, bug's, anything you would like me to edit? Change? The current color is Purple, but i should have a few other colors you guys can choose from in the future, including a black / white style set, a red style set, a blue style set, and a few others

Feel free to register and post all you want, the forum will however be deleted when i upgrade, if you need real help, please post in the main forum (here!).

Thanks! ~Joe.

Looks good, but just one question, no avatars?

By registering at this other forum your cookies for this site may get messed up, to fix this just click "logout" on both forums, then log in on this one.

This shouldnt happen, but if it does, thats the fix.

Servus!

Joe, I would like to see a dark blue style set with light grey backgrounds (blends better with our corporate website ) and would it be possible to set all of the user information from this forum to the next? Things like number of posts, user names and passwords and such? Or is this too much of a transport problem.

I would like to see a different font. Like Arial Rounded NT or just plain old Arial. Everyone does Tahoma 10pt, why should you?

Joe, are you going to have all the same forums you have here? Or are you going to just have two like it is now?

I was having some trouble figuring out the "bold","colors" and so forth. Maybe they are not activated yet, or possibly I am not the brightest cycle in the pack. Just thought I would let you know. Overall I like the new page...I am not familiar with the layout, but soon I will be.

I look forward to everyone being on the new site...it will give us all something new to play with.

Looks good.

I tried some enhanced VB to mess around with fonts, but they weren't displayed correctly. Also, I voted in the test and color polls. In both cases, the first time I clicked "vote", I was taken to a blank screen, rather than the vote results screen.

Yes, i will update all the forum info, usernames, posts, threads ect.

I think i also like the blue over purple, however im stuck with purple buttons for a few more days at the least. I'll keep working on the design / color layout.

Buzz, you need to click "close all tags" when you use the code. I'll look into the poll problem, thanks.
