Reported issues with Server Move - PLEASE READ
« on: October 25, 2011, 10:29:55 AM »
So there are a few minor issues with the server move...

Some of the attachments didn't make it. I am working on that right now.

The country flags addon isn't working - trying to fix that now.

Please use this spot to report issues, so I know what needs to be done.

Thanks
Eric

Hi
is it possible to have the ability back that lets you mouse over a post title and read the first few lines, I miss that.

I used to be confused, now I just don't know.

The heck with all the add ons, it's working fast and consistantly.  that's 100% improvement over past performance, so I'm a happy camper.

I like the look of it. Clean and contemporary, and the new look sets it apart from HMEM. No issues at all here.

Hi Eric,

Thank you very much for all the effort. Any chance of increasing the default font size?  Have to use 150% magnification to read but then the pics don't fit.

Hi Eric,

On some threads the pictures do not load in the forum page, have to click on the links and they download and open in picture viewer.

It works and it's fast! Great job, Eric.

It's odd that Abraham is now having difficulty with the font size. To me, it looks just the same as before. On my 17" screen, a lower case "o" is about 0.1" high, and everything is readable from two and a half feet away, despite my tired old eyes.

Hi Eric,

Congratulations on the reward of all your efforts :clap: :clap: :clap:

I like the layout once I figured out where to find stuff.

I uploaded my avatar again to get it to show. Some are still missing as are some thread pictures, even though others are saying they can see them. Is that something we need to do on our browsers? :zap:

Just a note as a couple of things changed this morning when I log on.
1.The stars are now gone and replaced with the blue squares some have been talking about.

2. My avatar has now left the building!

Neither is a important thing but thought that I should note it!

Where did the small country-flags below the username go?

I thought they were really nice to show the spread of people of this globe (even though mine were missing).

Country flag never worked for me on the old system (could never find anywhere to set it).  Was hoping the move might sort it out - at least we are all equal now...

Hi Anzaniste,

Just put the same text in "Personal text". That is shown under your avatar. I believe it was the same in the old system.
