AJ,

I encourage you to fiddle with your User CP, and find the settings that fit your style. You can change to the threaded view if you like! You can even click on the link up at the top of the page that says "New Posts" so you can see them all, on any forum at a quick glance.

Default Thoughts for AJ

AJ, welcome back - this is going to be a learning session for all of us. Conrad has done us all a great service by iinstalling the new software. He is still tweaking it and I'm sure there will be more instructional material going forward.

There are obvious adjustmennts needed. I for one have tried to adjust my browser for a larger font size to no avail. Apparently others are having similar problems. But not all difficulties are so intractable. What you are trying to do I think can be accomplished by selecting the "hybrid" option under the "display mode" pull-down menu at the top of this screen. Another problem that I have noted is that the "archives" link to the prior boards is not yet active; there is no way to access the old boards if you don't have them bookmarked. But all such difficulties at this stage goes under the heading of "growing pains."

What we have here is a system with a great deal more flexibility (such as the ability to re-visit a message and edit it for clarity or to correct spelling errors) and hopefully less bandwidth demand than its predecessor (time will tell). Earlier tonight Conrad was playing with colored logos that have now been turned off. Its a "work in progress" and a month from now will likely be far different than now.

Default Color need not be garish

Conrad was playing last night with some color that tied in thematically with the rest of the Dimensions site. It was brighter than the blue and white defauilt standard and had unique fonts. It wasn't garish but in my opinion looked better than what is here right now. Personally I would appreciate larger font size so that I don't have to focus so much to read (I wear thick glasses already). But we probably all have different preferences.

What's up is that we don't have enough bandwidth. The DImensions server has pretty powerful hardware that is plenty fast enough to handle the load. Inside the building where the server is, everything is very fast. From outside, all traffic has to go through that thin pipe (the quivalent of a T1) and that slows things down, often a lot. I've been trying to buy more bandwidth, but our (small) ISP, which is located in the same building, has long term contracts with SBC and they're paying a high price as well. I'll keep trying.

How could anyone forget you...? Anyway, I totally agree with your assessment. That is why I kept the old WebBBS for as long as I have. But overall it was such a resource hog and so limited in its capabilities that I simply had to put it out to pastures. There is one thing you can do, and that is subscribe to threads you're interested in. The system will then automatically email you each new post. You can then peruse it and ditch it, or save it if it's a keeper. Overall, the more you'll use this software, the more you'll like it. At least, that's what's happened to me.

A few possible solutions are to a) increase file size, but that means slower loads, b) see if I can find some sort of automatic thumbnail/avatar creation program, or c) rely on helpful advice and assistance from nice people like Heather.

Default My Compliments to the Chef

Since this seems to be the whaddya-think thread, I'll use it to say it looks like a smooth move, Mr. B. And since you've asked for our impressions:

I'll second the suggestions that we individually control our titles, rather than everyone being a "junior member," etc. It's a concise yet uniform way to further personalize one's posts.

I also like the idea of allowing different settings for different boards, so the paysite ladies can put a URL in their signature without risk of accidentally forgetting to disable it when posting on other boards.

I think offering alternate skins as an option is brilliant, as color tastes are highly subjective. The current colors make the boards very easy to read, but I do miss the warm scheme of the old Weight Board. Options are good.

Except for the "edit" option on posts. I hate that idea. But I'm sure I'm in the minority on that one.

And I had a thought. Might it be possible to add an "also known as" line to the profile template? I've noticed a lot of folks saying the new board software is prompting them to change names, and many of us used to be someone else. An AKA line on the profile would be a helpful reference for those of us who can barely remember current names, much less who used to be whom.

It'll also encourage trolls to come clean about the many names under which they post.

Kidding!

Definitely gonna take some time to get used to the new look, but this morning I'm finding myself actually reading the board. That's unusual for me. I'm the sort that looks in regularly, but doesn't often open any posts. With the new format, it still kinda takes a lot to get me to open a thread (that roll-over feature for the opening post is great), but once I'm in, I'm more inclined than before to read all the posts.

Haven't yet tried to embed a photo, or play with hybrid and threaded modes. And I'm looking forward to finding out what that little reputation knob thingy means.

Nice job, Chief. Thanks.

PS: Hurray for italics!

I basically agree. My sole concern is the potential for abuse. On some other boards I've seen people pick highly inappropriate labels which provoke strive, arguments, complaints. I know that's looking at the negative side. Perhaps I'll give it a try or use a poll on that.

I am not sure yet if that can be done. It may be buried in some of the thousands of settings. I'll keep looking!

I actually searched far and wide for an appropriate skin/theme. The default look a bit too contrasty and cluttered, with graphics that were too large. There is a third party market for vBulletin skins, and they usually cost about $30. I bought two so far. This one because it's lean and quite clear, and a funky "gothic" one where all text is on a big parchment scroll and such. I played with them and fear that downloading different themes may slow things down. I can, however, make different themes user-selectable. If we're not hitting the bandwidth wall to hard, I may make some available. Ops, I think, have that option anyway.

I actually like that, because I often bang out a post and then see embarrassing typos and inaccuracies. So I appreciate that I can fix them.

Not sure if that is possible. The new software shou;dn't ask anyone to change names as it is totally unrelated to the old software. So if someone was "enormous_cutie" on the old boards, she could pick the same moniker here.

I find that reading and answering posts becomes less of a conforntational thing. The whole format is less in-your-face, which means people will probably be more likely to state their real feelings. There can be "local" discussions within threads that won't immediately attract the attention of everyone.

I didn't mean to suggest the software itself is prompting people to change their names (though that's exactly what I said). What I mean to say is that I've noticed people saying they're changing their names as they're setting up new profiles. Starting anew is noodging them into using that new moniker they'd had their eye on.

I guess if they want people to know who they used to be, they can put it in their biography.

For the same reasons as you, Conrad, I love the option to edit. The bad thing about it is if someone decides to leave and wants to delete their posts, it can sometimes be a problem, but all in all, I think it's well worth it.

Hey AJ!! You don't even have to enter the thread to know if something is new - the threads with new posts since your last visit will be bold, and you can click the little down arrow to the left of the thread subject to have it take you to the first new post in the thread since your last visit

With the linear configuration, it looks as though you may be able to save the entire page but not individual posts. Again... is there perhaps an option or setting that I'm missing?
Actually each post does have it's own URL. See the little number in the upper right corner of each post? If you right click you can get the URL of that post, or you can click on it, and it takes you to that post and you can snag the URL from your browser's address line.

Good to see ya AJ!!

Manually. You just enclose whatever you want to quote in bracket-quote-bracket and bracket-slash-quote-bracket.

I am monitoring server load. The machine itself isn't even breathing hard, it's all bandwidth-related. In a few days I'll close the old boards entirely, so that load will be gone.

Hey, it worked! The Preview Post button sure is handy too. Yep, I'm getting the hang of this new software. Like anything worthwhile in life, it sometimes takes patience and perseverence. I'm trying to take baby steps, which isn't easy with my big feet.

No need to change the font size or color scheme; I see that I can change the options to suit myself. I work on computers all day, so I like stuff that's easy on the eyes. One forum I briefly tried had a garish color scheme that almost made me crosseyed. Besides, the participants can liven up the board just fine with their friendly discussions. As my engineer husband says: keep it simple and reliable.

speaking of nice people dose someone who is extremly nice think they could post , how exactly to do the avators.. Or rather how to make them / or where to get them from???


The problem here is that there are so many admin options that it sometimes takes me ten minutes just to find a setting.... And then I have to make decisions that I am unsure of. With avatars, for example, I have a choice of handling them from the database or moving them into the file system. Huh? As is, avatars have a max size of 80x80 pixels and 20k.

basically you need to resize a picture so that the height and width are no greater than 80 pixels. if it's a photograph (or something you've scanned) save it as a JPEG (.jpg), adjusting the picture quality until the file is under 20K in size. if it's clipart or other computer graphics save it as a GIF (.gif). you might want to use the selection tool to select just a small area of a picture (e.g. just the face).

i hope that makes some sense - afraid i can't really recommend any software, but imagine someone else will have some good suggestions. i use this: http://www.gimp.org/ which is free, but probably only for geeks!

i've attached the photo from your profile, resized to fit the avatar requirements, if that helps
