Default What do we miss from the old igloo?

Ok, don't mean to spread negative vibes here or anything, cause this new igloo certainly is lovely,

i just miss some features from the old format:

- the 'introduce yourself' forum for welcoming new members - i think this forum had a lot to do with the friendly atmos of the igloo, i'd really love to get that back

- the 'latest post' feature at the bottom of the front page was great too, then you could see where 'the buzz' was RIGHT HERE AND NOW, and it made the dialogue very dynamic, almost chat room-like at times - i liked that

could we get any of these thingies back perhaps?

Cille... those features are here too!!

The 'Introduce Yourself' forum is exactly as it was...

As for the 'latest post' feature - click the "new posts" button in the middle of the menu bar at the top and you get all the latest posts

Is there a way to sort those by forum? I think they are now sorted by posting time. There are certain forums, like the musician's ones, that I never read and it's currently harder to to go through the new posts if I only log on once a day and get two pages full of search results.

Oh, here's another one: in the signature editing dialog there is no way to insert a picture. I miss my penguin.

It's not that way for me... maybe you have to select the format in your profile?

What about the "last post" column? Do you look at that? It's not *exactly* the same, but it comes close.

I'm slowly getting used to it all

if you click on new post and look to the right of the post titles it tell you what the forum names are, I think thats what you were looking for...

(i miss being able to put icons in your post not just your title but in your post, i dont think you can, i didnt do it too much, but i do like my options open)

Yes, the forum names are still there, but now I have to look at them all. It used to be sorted before; you know, like all "introduce yourself" threads were together. Now it's all jumbled up. No biggie, though.

To use icons you need to turn on your WYSIWYG edittor. It's somewhere in your User Control Panel.

I think it looked better when the bar where the name and avatar etc is was to the left of the post. This saves alot of room on the forum I think.

yeah, I agree with Angela on this one. I liked it better when all the new posts were sorted by category, it was more conveniently arranged that way.

i don't like the way the threads don't have as many posts on one page as they used to. i'm not mental on the colour scheme, and the layout confuses me. it's all a bit too busy for my liking. overall it's a grand forum, but i preferred the old one and a new one is better than none at all.

I think that is because the user info now runms across the top of each post. Before it was on the left.

I know you can change the settings somewhere so that the user info is on the left for this type of forum. I go to a coulple of other vBulletin forums and they have it how we are sused to, which I think is better.

Anyways, keep up the good work with maintaining this site

ditto here. I can't get used to this new forum either.
But I know a lot of work has gone into getting it back up and running.
Pity we can't have the old forum back, it worked really well - nearly a little too well.

thanks for the feedback... i've just changed the user info to the left hand side. do you have a suggestion for the colour scheme? what about the layout confuses you livo?

i personally prefer this forum to the old forum. what is it that you miss? let me know and i'll try to add it.
