There's tons of options there. I turned off the pulsation but left the circle, but I can eliminate it entirely if people prefer.
I like just the green notification, but not the blinky part.

Maybe we need a poll next week when bigger things are sorted.

Still having an issue on mobile trying to start a new paragraph.

I see one issue, if someone has a long post and you quote them, it kind of "condenses" the post and you wont see the whole post of the user you are quoting

Unless you click on the bottom of the quote box, where the text appears to fade away, and the whole post appears.

This is the kind of post we could have used LIKE with.

So, thanks for getting rid of LIKE.

I just want to say thanks to Nip and crew for spending gobs of time making SoSH one of the best places on the internet. You guys do a phenomenal job.

The "Other Crap" forum (Including P&G/V&N) should now be unborked for paid members.

Unpaid folks can't even see those forums, and won't tonight. And there's no workaround since you can't pay currently. Sorry. Lots of irons in the fire.
I'm a paid subscriber and can't see the "Other Crap" forums.

We again apologize for some of you not being able to have the access to which you are accustomed.

SumnerH and Nip are doing yeoman's work on this, and a lot of that involves going and finding the damned stuff that needs changing. Thank you for your patience, but in the end, everything should be better and faster than it was before.

Snoochie boochies, little noochies.
 
Now that my username no longer appears on a single line of text - and looks positively goofy - is it possible for me to change it to "Conigliaro's Potential", or is that sort of thing frowned upon? (TBH that's what I always wanted it to be anyway, but when I joined the site for some reason all of my attempts to use apostrophes failed.)

I'm rather lost - in life, never mind on the internet - at the moment without the SoSH access to which I'm accustomed, but I'm just about managing to be grown up about it. Really looking forward to seeing what the final version of the new site looks like.

Gotta say, the block of "Latest Replies" appearing at the top of every page is not a great addition.

ok I am done for now. A few changes, they're probably not perm, but everything is in a usable-enough stage. I need to eat and get coffee

Just want to add my thanks to AlNipper and SumnerH for the time and effort required to upgrade SOSH. It's a big part of my daily routine, has been for years and is much appreciated.

Echo the thanks to Nip and Sumner, monster effort and love the upgrade.

Thank you for your efforts. As far as the avatars, I agree that the default size was too large, but I think that the size has become pretty small right now. I think the default size was 200x200 and now the images are 48x48. Even on the old board it was 60x60. Even that size I thought was a tad small, because oftentimes you couldn't tell what was on the avatar. Can we try something like 80x80? I know most people have larger screens, but I have a 19 inch monitor with 1360x768 and I have to zoom out the page because the letters are too big and this exacerbates it.

Thanks

I still can't see the Other forums in a browser or iOS despite trying the suggestions posted earlier in this thread.

I second Nick Kaufman's thoughts about the avatar size.

New default theme that just hit looks great.

Also - Other Crap is now showing up for me. Top. Men.

As you all may be able to guess, this is Wingack. I can't sign in at all under my former forum name. Every time I log in I get a 500 Internal Service Error. Doesn't matter if I clear out my history and caches or what computer or device I am using. Is there anyone else having this problem? Is there anyone that can help me fix it?

Hmm. Try again now.

The skin update today looks awesome.

Echoing the thanks for all the effort, I'm blown away by the progress/speed of updates considering it's just Nip and Sumner undertaking an upgrade like this.

As passle, I can't see Other Crap either. mostman can and is a "Premium Member", where passle and I are "Members". I guess that's the distinction and that it'll be patched in the fullness of time. Hate that I might have to work with P&G unavailable, but I'm patient :)

no the issue is that there were maybe 50 members imported incorrectly. I started going through them one by one but honestly it would have taken hours. So instead I clicked on the ones that had avatars listed (which in itself isnt an exact science since not all those came either) and assumed that they were active users. I figured we'd get most of the active users that way, and you were probably one of the unlucky ones.

I have no avatar, but am active (mostly as a reader). Still no "Other Crap" forum. Sorry to ruin your system.
