This board is obviously untested. The grand opening should be set back another couple days. The profiles are not working. There are two people with access to the same account.

Cool new text formatting

I also like the preview being added to the top and not having to go back to continue.

The file upload facility should be good except if lazy people simply post all their source when they get a specific problem.:mad:

faces are cool too :D :confused: - no more ;-)

Hey kermi, how'd you do that poll? That's pretty sweet!

Also, how long till the board is totally moved over from UB to this?

Whoops - RTFFAQ, Govtcheez...

So, normal users can't do polls? Boooo!! Hisss!!! :mad:

I think with the copious amounts of polls on the General Board in UB, we should allow normal users to do polls (or at least me and doubleanti, cuz we seem to do the most)

I had to make a totally new account because my old one would not work. :( Oh well, I am sure the Webmaster will get all the kinks out of this thing...I want to use my normal account.

I think I like it even though it has a few bugs to work out. There are definately many new features and it seems just as navigatable as the old board. Hopefully it will attract more programmers.

i'm not rick barclay.

new interface is sweet. I'm experiencing the same bug. The board won't let me register as mix0mat, and it says that i'm already registered as rick barclay. It even let me get to his profile...

mix0matt (you can call me rick)

Use a different email address. Don't use the same address that you registered with on the old board.

I wish my board looked and worked as good as this
one. Oh well. Maybe someday.

Rick, lotsa people seem to have been having that problem. It's just an accident. No-one was logged in as Salem for a little bit, too. Iain was Stoned_Coder. Probably the most annoying bug uncovered so far, but I have noticed the Webmaster doing a good job of fixing other things relatively quickly.

Apparantly 7 people think this board is 'inceadable' er something. What is that supposed to mean? Check poll.

I personally gave this a top score (love it vote) even though there are a few bugs to be worked out. This is way better than the old board even though the color scheme on the old board was quite nice. This color scheme isn't too bad either though. I would say that this new board gives the 'registered' user a lot more control over his posts as well as what he sees on his screen in general. It will take some time just to use all the features and get used to some of them. Should be fun.

i was wondering about that... but we might abuse it... maybe it should be regulated well enough where it wouldn't be a hassle. i guess i'm for it... can that be done webmaster? as ourselves if a quantitative polling addition necessarily more useful to understand general opinion then a qualitative...

well, it's strange that I brought this poll back from the shadows, but what was the other board like?

Just curious
