Cozman...what do you mean?

I tried to register, than the board told me that I was cozman, but I'm not.

Holy Christ this place is confusing. I guess I could delete cookies than come back.

When I first tried to reply here I was logged in as mfc2themax. When I clicked logout, I couldn't post a message as a quest but the board forced me to create a new account (I think this is a feature?)

Well, anyways... The Preview Reply option is whole lotta better than before. And the whole user interface is better and easier. Colors won't spooke you... I think this board is ready for go.

This looks good.

A bit confusing at the beginning but I asume is the same when you pass from driving a car to flight a plane.

I have only one but. Is it possible to order the threads in a way that the newest reply appears first.

Wow. This is very impressive. Good job! This was probably a lot of hard work for you, and I sincerely appreciate it.

When are you planning on replacing the old board completely?


Thank you again,

Betazep

p.s. Side note... more FAQs :o)

Yeah, aside from the time, everything looks great!

Would any of the old posts be moved over here?

Also, while we're redoing the website; can we look at the old UB suggestions for FAQ additions, and also the CDB that (mostly) kooma, gamegod, and ken were working on?

Congratulations, you have done a great job updating this board.

I've only made a quick viewing of the site. I like the ability to go directly to a threads most recent reply.

I don't understand the "Rating" column. What is it for and how do you use it?

Just a quick question...

...are the banners and ads country specific ?

It's all in German, which is kinda neat...

They appear to be - mine are all in English... That's really sweet!

Hmmm.... that quote didn't quite seem to work right... let's try again


...are the banners and ads country specific ?

Still not - what's up with that?

That's too bad...

So, here's the problems so far (we'll pretend the vbCode works anyways)


Multiple users logging in as the same person (I didn't have a problem with this, either)
No vbCode...
Normal users can't start polls!


Oh well - this is still pretty cool!

At first I was thrown for a loop. My profile under the old board has a nickname that is different from my username. I do this because I prefer to stick with just a few usernames between applications. I do not always want to use my username as a reference to myself however and I believe the old nickname feature would be a nice addition.

Also, this is my first post here so I have not yet had the opportunity to try, but will the use of avatars be permitted?

This looks great
I registered without a problem
The new reply interface is wicked
and the private messaging will be a nice feature

All involved have done a really great job with this
and i also appreciate it.

<:-)

>>I registered without a problem
it says my name is hoffer007 but im Megatron
and you cant edit that part of your profile
and to boot it logs me in whenever i come here
what should i do

Hmmm.... that's odd...

I just went to the General board, and it said smilies and vbCode is on; in this board it says both are off.

The new look is good. This board system is faster... How do we insert spaces into our posts?

does this work?

&nbsp&nbsp&nbspOr this?

At least there's this
[SPACE]?

[TAB]?

I guess the formatting utility is needed again..

Or will the questions only contain snippets, and people attach the complete files where the problems are?

Hey Kermi...

Strangely enough, smilies and vB code are on in the General board.

are there 35 posts here or is tha another bug...And it's got me replying to the wrong thread, I think...at least the thread it's showing under this reply box seems to be wrong...or something...

-KEN-
08-10-2001, 10:15 AM
Why did it just make me reply to the wrong thread?

Govtcheez
08-10-2001, 10:15 AM
Huh? What are you talking about?

-KEN-
08-10-2001, 10:17 AM
Ohhh.nevermind. It has 3 pages! See, I was thinking that the end of the page was the thread's end. Anyone know how I can make it all one page like in the old UB?

ggs
08-10-2001, 10:21 AM
in your user profile->options you can set the number of posts per page. The max is 40.. that's what I've got it set to. It would be nice if it could be higher, but this feature could be handy for big threads like the "True Believe" and "Who's your favourite Pokemon" :)

Does anybody else have to scroll right to see the buttons at the top of the page?

I'm using Mozilla-2001 08 03 03.

It seems to have been fixed. Perhaps when I upgraded (now 2001 08 10 03), or perhaps webmaster fixed it. I withdraw my complaint.

Well i usually stick with the c and game boards but i noticed that the new c++ boards actually have posts. But since you asked about the new boards all I can say is that I was told that I was already registered under some user name i've never used (or seen anyone else use) and actually had to erase the cprogramming.com cookies off my hard drive for the registration process to work right. I'm sure all the bugs will be worked out but that is still frustrating.

Okay...and there was an error when I pressed submit reply...

new baord is great! The upload feature is probably the best addition and we have proper text formatting, at last!! close the old board now and send it to http hell !!
Although users signed in on the new board should be able to access the old boards, and the board set before that - i dont know if that still exists - havent looked for a long time
