Great new forum! I curiously exploring every new button I can find to see what it hides. Avatars are missing, I'm so happy my specially created snail managed to follow me! :lol:

Thanks, Yannis. We never get bored here!

The homepage and the forum looks really good!

The only think i dont like is that the blue colour is a little bit strong for the eyes...

Very nice looking, but I am missing the indicator showing which discussions have been updated since my last visit to this forum?

There is a folder symbol left of each topic and its colour becomes more vivid when it is a new thread or there is a new posting.

Hi Yannis, I just tried to look in HELP files for the Albums option that is available in the User settings, couldn't find anything about it there. Actually I managed to create an album but when I tried to upload a picture, the system complained about that the file is too big. Wondering what might be the maximum allowed file size for picture files, is it maybe 1000k, same as for file attachments here? :unsure:

Uffe,
you are right. The Help files need some improvement. I will do that soon.
About your question: the file size limit has been set to 500 KB. The uploaded photos will be automatically resized to 700 pixels wide or 600 pixels high and thumbnails will also be generated.

Dear Henry,
we are all learning this new system... :unsure:
If you go to the second top menu, there where it says My Blog - My Controls -... and you click on View New Posts, then you will get a list with all new posts since your last visit to the forum. This feature requires that you are a member and that you have logged in.

Hi Yanni,

Great forum! I have spent almost the whole Sunday exploring all the new features and I am looking forward to use them - and of course to read all the new topics here.

Ha Janni!
So thats where you have been hiding! Nice clean looking board.
But I only found it by going through your home page I've been getting the message "this board is currently unavailable" every time i tried to get in <_<
I will amend my links page shortly. But it might be an idea to let all the webmasters know that the url has changed :)
Best wishes
