New look Forum


Recommended Posts

New site seems to be working really well. I've only used it for it's most basic features, but seems to be good.

Hmm...

It doesn't like embedded videos in this forum, but I can start/post in other forums and embed videos just fine... but I cannot find a setting to control this on a per-forum basis. I've put in a support ticket to find out what is going on.

Which forum are you trying to post a video in?

I tried in the Sleaze (Santa Cruz thread) forum. I think the site might have even changed the link I posted before the site update from embedded video to just a text of the link but I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks

I just went in and edited your post. When I copied and pasted your links, it converted them to videos immediately.

Were you copying them from the address bar in your browser or somewhere else?

It looks like if the forum detects that you are pasting in rich text, it leaves the Youtube link as a link. You may get a popup asking "Paste as plain text instead?". If you say yes, it then autoconverts to a video.

Somehat confusing and inconsistent... ick.

Been using this updated version over at The Baltimore Sun website in which I moderate for a few months.

Looks nice.

Testing 1... 2... 3...

Testing to see whether a newbie account can reply to this topic, as CureTheSane was having issues.

Yep. Seems to work.

Wooaahh I take a break for a few days and come back to a totally new sleek look!

I think I'm gonna like it but I'll defo need to play around with it a bit before I get fully used to it (as I've just discovered per the 'spoilers' below which were unintentional but I can't seem to get rid of lol)

The new Forum is great, but there is one thing that I miss from the old one. I absolutely love the new "recent post" column on the Home page, but we don't have a "recent topic posted" column anymore. It's was great to see at a glance what new topics have been posted. I find that now if there has been a few comments posted I tend miss new topics and I have to go looking to see if any new ones have been added. Is that something you could implement Dan?  No biggie, i'm just a lazy cunt.

actually I can see that you can click the arrow in the quoted text box which takes you back to the original post - is that the way it works now?

Glen,

I'll be honest, I don't visit forums (including this one) on my phone. With my old eyes and fat fingers, it's not worth the frustration. Maybe some of the other more savvy mobile users can help you.

I can't find a thing anymore with this new search. Not only does it not find anything you know is there, even after waiting to do another search I get that "please wait XX seconds to do another search". So annoying!

Ok... if you want me to look into changing things, I need SPECIFICS. Searches that you believe are failing when there are results you know exist. EXACT keywords you used.

General complaints without details give me no information to pursue problems that may (or may not) exist.

I think I might have figured it out. I was searching for Eden's Curse Cardinal thread and was coming up empty. I then noticed it was only searching in the site feedback forum for some reason. So I had to check every forum to get it to work.

    • I already wrote a little bit about the samples. Now that the whole songs are out I got reminded why they were my favourite band until they broke up. They got some crazy energy and they're a puzzle... 4 great musicians who leave enough space for each other to shine. Even though here and there there could be a bit more space for the vocals but yeah, guitars were the concept of this album and that's fine. Trond is probably my favourite living guitar player, nobody writes riffs like him.  In my earlier post I said Trond (Teeny) sings Call of the wild. Have to correct that, it's Bernt (Flash). Next time, let Åge sing... or Trond... the song is fine but the voice is a bit underwhelming. Where does it hurt & Shadows of eternity are my favourites after the first run through, great songs with a heaviness never heard from Wig Wam. Silver linings is very melodic but I guess one or five less repetitions of the chorus would have still been enough. Hard love is actually better thsn I thought after listening to the samples, great build up. My kaleidoscope ark is a great ballad, exactly what I missed when Wig Wam wasn't there. One little point of criticism maybe... the production is veeery rough. Energetic but some mistakes could have been edited out. The first bar of the Where does it hurt verse has a little rhythm error in the palm mutes of the guitar; there was one solo that was a bit too slow somewhere, I also heard some tiny wrong notes of the singer. For a live performance that is usual but as a studio production a bit strange... at least I haven't heard things like that before on a well done record. Anyway, these are great songs and I hope that it's only the beginning of a long future. 
    • Wind Outta Sails - Fashion Police
    • Both are good. He sounds great. All fingers crossed.
    • Hypnotized and Shadows Of Eternity stand out for me and as you say it’s great to have these guys back. Really good album. Tails off slightly towards the end I think but love the heavier sound. Today has been a fine day for music! 
    • Epica - The Holographic Principle (Deluxe)  Epica - The Quantum Enigma (Deluxe) Epica - The Solace System Stream Of Passion - A War Of Our Own Xandria - Sacrificium Xandria - Theater Of Dimensions Creye - II W.E.T - Retransmission  Wig Wam - Never Say Die
    • I was referring to the appalling lack of grammar on display in the post I highlighted. 
    • Gave this a listen and been through twice so far. I guess for me, it's good but at the same time I think I'm just a little bit underwhelmed and think I liked the last album a tiny bit more overall. Basically, I dig the first 5 songs but then the second half sort of feels pretty average to me until One Final Kiss which is killer.   Still a handful of good tunes I'll initially be adding to my playlist though and we'll see how it goes after a few more listens.
    • I’m yet to play Creye but W.E.T. and Wig Wam are a brilliant way to kick off 2021. Both really solid discs.  Looking forward to Creye now!
