Today we went through an extended period of maintenance to perform updates to the forum, these were essential performance upgrades that have also brought some changes to the overall layout and functionality of the forum.
Please reply to this post including any bugs or problems you find with the forum, include as much information as possible to allow us to fix them promptly.
Thanks, we appreciate everyone's patience through the maintenance period.
I like that youtube videos can now be posted without the media tags, but the forum still seems kind of slow. Otherwise I like it
And I can't click my signature link anymore. That's my only issue so far :\
Is the new avatar format supposed to be so small? Also when uploading a new picture it is very unclear about which picture will be your avatar and which will be the picture of you. (unless that has been removed)
Also when uploading a large file there are no warnings that indicate file size/pixle size.. all it says is it's better to use one ofter 200x200.
In every single post on the forums, it shows the code used to write. Like for the title it has the size and other stuff in brackets. Links are written out with brackets and stuff too. Kind of annoying but I hope you fix it soon.
Feels more like a downgrade
Also what's with messing with our avatars, majority of those I've seen so far, including my own, are borked now. Bah.
And still getting slow loading, images missing, forum missing it's background/styles, and:
Servers temporarily at capacity.
The backend servers have temporarily reached capacity.
Quoting myself from the other thread, and adding:
Black icons on darkgrey background, really?
Many smileys are broken (pic not showing)
Avatars small compared to before, also seems to have their quality reduced "greatly" after upload (they didn't look like that before)
Probably more to add, but I'm sure others will catch those things.
Edit: Tried saving the avatar picture I uploaded after the change - and quite shocked - original looked much better, was 160x170 and 26.1kb size. The same picture after upload - not only is the quality raped - and reduced to 100x100, it's still the same size - what's the point of reducing quality of avatars, IF SIZE REMAINS THE SAME?!
