    Like it.

    Everything good from the old site is here.

    Other things are SOOOO much better than the old site; like searches.

    I don't like the colors and the site lay out could be better.

    One thing that is missing is spell check, that helps keeps the spell nazi's at bay. Also what happened to all the smileys? The selection seems pretty pitiful. The baby blue color scheme may appeal to some, but its a bit hard on the old eyes. It seems hard to find some things, the layout just seems "off".

    Spell check missing? If you're using Mozilla Firefox you can download Firefox 2 which will include this upgrade.

    Smileys do seem to be from two different schools and color options is something that has been discussed/requested by a few others.

    Overall, I think the new server is fantastic improvement. It does take some time to become familiar with it. Thanks John for all of your hard work and effort.

    If anyone is still using a version of firefox that is pre-2, they need to get out more often. I just installed the newest version last night, and it's up to version 3.6.8...

    I like the new format. It seems to load faster, and the search functions are more detailed and seem to work faster.

    I have pretty much gotten used to the new forum. Since it is free to me, I can't really complain.

    I cannot make multiple quotes work like the old forum--a quote within a quote. If someone knows how, I wouldn't object to a PM or post explaining.

    Check the "+ button for each individual post. Cut the inner quote and paste it inside the outer quote.

    For example.

    I still have to highlight the inner quote and click the quote icon to accomplish this.

    And as you can see it did not work out quite right.

    Nope. Thanks for the hint. I'll try to get the hang of it.

    Well, given who is doing it, that's no surprise. (test)

    Cut, don't copy, the inner quote (with its opening and closing quote tags). Paste it immediately following the opening quote tag for the outer quote.

    Thats fine and dandy if you use firefox, I dont. I did however download a free spell check program. We'll see how it works.

    Like the ease of navigation and the new features. The new "theme," i.e. color scheme and post box format, make it much harder for ME to actually read posts, though.

    Thumbs up

    I like the new site, and I have been able to pull up the full advanced message editor with the smileys, icons, etc. All you have to do is edit your profile, and look for message editor.

    As far as the message editor features, I would like to see the "strikethrough" feature. This feature is available on other vBulletin forums, including at Calguns.net. It would help when citing certain legislation where things are being repealed in gun laws.

    Indeed, have a strike through feature would be very nice.

    I think its funny, someone doesn't like the site in its entirety and you feel you need to defend it somehow. I don't like some parts of the new site, you do and that's great. Isn't going to change how I feel. Perhaps in time I will get accustomed to the new features but until then I'm pretty sure I am entitled to my opinion.

    Just thought these two posts needed to be juxtaposed.

    One thing I do like is the IGNORE feature.
