See something wrong? Submit graphics!

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
If you see something about the new forums that you don't like, submit graphics that you'd like to replace ugly stuff here!

Uh, everything looks great so far. Great job to everyone involved in the transition

One thing that surprised me was the Knight Rider music on login, is the music supposed to be on that page? Or, for that matter any of the error pages? Just curious... I knew you guys used it during board downtime, wasn't sure if you were using it anywhere else.

Ugly stuff you see here?

Jon. I'm hurt.

I hope you refer to the few remaining original vB graphics that I haven't replaced myself yet.

The Knight Rider graphic/sound is still funny

The only thing wrong is my post count dropped from 978 to 851.

But at least the shakes have stopped...

Mow that you mention it, my posts dropped by maybe around 50 or so. Me.. hope it's not proportionate, or EmAn's gonna be down to like 7.

I've found two things wrong so far. This, where the quotes don't work:



Replying to the post shows that start tags are square brackets and end tags are arrows. This is wrong for obvious reasons:

PS LOVE the larget input field. One thing that will catch people out will be that the "buddy" icon is where the old reply icon was.

Then you must have had some 100 posts that were deleted in the old AI forum. The counters on UBB never properly decremented when you deleted a post and for that matter could never be re-checked to be sure they were accurate. On vB, the counters *are* properly updated.

You really do go out looking for the answers before we know there's a problem, huh?

Thanks for the explanation.

I've noticed one more thing: No page number for me at the top of threads! only at the bottom!

The forum jump menu goes without clicking the button, I remember this being discussed before and it was decided that it should not go until the arrow was clicked... I figured that since there was still a button there that's how it was supposed to be.

Nice job guys. Someday you'll tell your grandkids about the great UBB to vBulletin switch!

I like the new design. I like how the New Topic and Reply buttons have graphics from Mail on them. Also it's good that the four little circles with pictures in them got updated. I can't tell what the last one is though (the first three are the Xserve, TiBook and iMac).

However, it's annoying how now the menu used to select what forum to jump to is only at the bottom, no longer at the top. So if I want to go from forum to forum, I have to either click back and then pick it again, or I have to scroll all the way down to the bottom. Sure doesn't make a good case for anti-tab people, considering tabs solve the problem perfectly but we won't go there here. Can that be fixed?

Nice work, really!

It's minimalist, easy to read, non-intrusive, not Windows-looking. All-together poifect.

the last one is an iPod remote... and the Ti will soon be outdated

yeah this is annoying, but I'm sure it will get fixed along with a slew of other cosmetic and functional changes... Its like os X.0.0 and 9.2.2 ubb had quite a few hacks installed, it is going to take a while to get vB up to 10.2.4 (well, hopefully a little better then that...)

Oh. Repeat the "Forum Jump" menu and page numbers above the threads, as well as below. Of course, I could just stick it in my menubar.

well, under your CP, in the PM section, there are still Graphics from original vB.

And under the profile, every user is able to change his 'second' name. Like I'm an Senior Member now.

Same here. :confused: and to be honest, I was rather happy to have bridged the 1000 count. Looks like I'm a nOOb all over again.
post #24 of 44
good job guys...still used to the old layout, so when i want to go back up to AI main page from FutureHardware or something i still go to the right of the page when i need to start going to the left...but i'll get used to it


excellent job guys!




...will vB be able to eventually show what the last posted topic was on the mainpage like UBB did?

Yes, vB is very nice and stuff but one thing is bugging me at the mo, the large input field is too large for my 15" display (have to scroll across a lot).
Any way of changing this?
post #27 of 44
I dont particularly like how the Forum Jump menu is on the left and not the right, but at least all the
PHP Code:
vB Code performs right, as it does not on the MacNN boards 
uhm...where is my smokey guy?

No, only members with 1000+ posts can do this.

FYI, if people abuse this priviledge or spam to get their post count up to use it, it will be revoked.

I've got a bug, but I can't post a picture of it because I'm viewing it at work on a PC.

Everytime an AI page loads in IE on Windows 2000 I see a runtime error "Object Expected Line 66".

It asks me if I want to debug and I just say no and it goes away. I get the message because I have all the Windows Dev Tools installed. It looks like its just a JavaScript error.

I'm not going to do that. I've had my share of bad experiences. You know ... (pun intended, but no 'bad' one..just being nice)

edit: still going to ask: what would be 'abusing' ?

I was a Senior Member for about 5 minutes this morning, then I tweaked my profile and now I'm back to Member again....ahhh, the fleeting fickleness of fame.


BTW boys....an excellent job on the transition. Very Zippy in Camino too! Thanks for all your hard work!


/Hmm...that's weird. The 'TM' I posted after Zippy got changed to a '?'....vB doesn't like odd characters? (not you Jon or Brad, I mean keyboard stuff )

Is it possible I'm missing all of my private messages? That'd be sad... I had some heroic bouts of bilateral insults with groverat stocked there, which were always good for cheering me up...

Yeah, however useless, it was fun.

I wonder if there's something similar still around.

vB handles the "special" characters fine. Safari, though, often craps out on them in forms like this.

That was it. Back to Camino I go (for now).
