Really like the clean look, good job!
This new look is awesome. Well done Reality!
I love it. Especially on the phone which is where Im on the net the most. Great job
The new sitelooks great, your hard work to maintain the site is much appreciated!
Wow just noticed you can like post now and it shows which threads you have commented on. Awesome
Glad you guys switched to Xenforo. Much better.
It would be nice to get the you tube thing working like the old site.
Now, none of the you tube vids work.
I'm sure that I will like this format in time, but it does not feel as user friendly as the old site.
Feels strange at the moment yet very clean. It'll take some time for me to feel comfy. Thanks for all the hard work you are doing. I wanted to give you five spinning stars but don't know how. It's the thought that counts right?
I thought the old site looked pretty sharp... less is more. This new software seems a little busy, not to rain on your parade or anything. Also, my avatar looks like pixelated garbage now.
He's still tweaking some things...which probably includes the youtube tags and whatnot. He had a lot of customizations on the old site and I'm sure it's going to take awhile to get them running similarly on the new platform.
I think it would be great if everyone could continue to note which features they liked and which features aren't working for them.
I had an issue with trying to get the site to run on IE10...and it turns out that all I had to do was turn off compatibility mode. Sooo, simple things like that may help others as they get used to the site.
One thing I'm trying to find is how to adjust my thread settings so that I can get back to 40 posts per page. This 15 post per page sucks..
And from a brief search, there doesn't appear to be a way to adjust posts per page (user configurable, anyway) in XenForo. That would be a dealbreaker for me.
Whatever.. I like IE. Lol. But I do use Firefox, as well.
Who knows that might be one of those things Reality has to tweak..
And I just checked a thread that had a vid, it looks like the youtube tags do work.
Looks like the way you post youtube videos change. Now you use the entire URL.
I used IE in the past because I had to support it. The main reason I stopped using it is because it had a memory leak. Open up a large number of tabs, and it starts using obscene amounts of memory. Did they fix that yet? I like Chrome too much to switch back now anyway.
Oh, I have no doubt that Reality will get this new format working better than it is.
Another thing that I don't really like is that the old forum used to have a "green light" to users that were online at the moment, not I have to look at the home page to see who is reading.
And, also, the back button on posts. If I see a post from "user 1" that "user 2" responded to, I cannot go back in time to see what was going on in the conversation unless I scroll through the whole thread to find what was being said to each other..
Go look at my thread in the Off Topic Forum about Music videos. How is that going to be fixed?
[.youtube]xxxxxx[./youtube] tags are definitely not working.
I would never use anything else but Google Chrome.
I'm not sure, but I don't think so... but that's why I also use FireFox. Certain sites run better on Firefox than IE. And some sites I just like seeing on IE more than FireFox.
