Hey folks,

As you can see, we've just upgraded - changed forum software to invision power board and created skin in new "corporate" style.

If you have any problems with this new forum, feel free to post them here.

P.S.
Suggestions are welcome too.

Thanks,

Can you change the page background to a dark grey, there is far too much white on my large screen, i'm being blinded, and finding it hard to follow the threads

Thanks

Dont like it initially but that may be due to lack of familiarality, seems harder to read though.

I really don't like the colors. The colors make it really hard for me to read. It might just be as simple as changing the background color, I'm not sure. It just seems to bright to me.

I also don't like how are signatures show up. Can you make that part smaller?

Also, what about our little pictures that used to be next to our names?

Also, on the right on the main page, the links where the newest posts are, can those colors be changed? Maybe make the post one color and the poster another color?

Also, can you just do less blue. There is way, way too much blue going on here.

I do also agree with N1xus, I have no clue of what bugs are fixed and what ones aren't.

Thanks,

Brandon

Why change from vBulletin to IPB???... vB is definitely better in my opinion. Also the skin is very clean but also very ("very") light colored which makes it little bit hard to read but otherwise its good.

The bugtracker is a great point. Being able to tell the status of a bug from the listing page was a great and IMHO a required feature.

I absolutely despise this new forum style, the original was much nicer. <_<

Everything about this seriously sucks, what was wrong with v-bulletin? :angry:

You had a forum that worked great, why did you screw it up, where is the logic?

Rant Over..........Almost......

So, now I love CS-Cart, but hate the forum, and, I am no longer a "Guru", just a loose loser like everyone else! :blink:

Loser!
V-Bulletin sucks on so many levels, spam, search, login sessions etc.
Let it be known that it was out of date but all the same, moving forward.
I've moved on from CS-Cart to WooC******** - If you need anything I can be of little help.

Alright Jesse, I have never had the pleasure of administering a forum, so if monitoring spam, etc. is more difficult with vBulletin, then I will take your word for it & can appreciate that.

Perhaps if someone simply improves the readability of the skin design then the rest will fall into place. (AKA light gray text on white background for starters) ;)

I'll tell you honestly that I can't read this forum well either, something I'm sure Zeke is aware of by now :).
Spam / Search is just part of the reason I quit as Admin, apart from my son of course.

The readability is no problem. Just wear your sunglasses, and make sure you use some sunscreen against the burns.

I understand why they moved... but we def. need back the avatars and it would be cool if we'd get back Guru, etc. :rolleyes:

In the topic list the hover icon alter the title. It shift and is annoying. Topic list should be in bold and hover to a darker blue, no "jumping" to a second line.

What I don't like really is that I have to scroll-and-scroll-and-scroll to get to the last post. Please try to compress the space. Too much space wasted. Now it use all the width, but really people doesn't post that long. Too much space wasted.

Quotes panel should be in darker grey, light blue is confusing. Single post header bar should be a little darker so it easy to recognize throughout all the unlimited scrolling....
