Hi. I'm Seva. I'm one of the programmers here at Acne.org and I'm helping Dan upgrade to the new version of the messageboards.

We hope to have everything spruced up and ready to go by Monday or Tuesday. Please feel free to post here about suggestions you have. Keep in mind that we are not finished with the transition and some parts of the boards, like avatars, galleries, blogs, search, and members area are not yet fully upgraded. Thanks.

PS: I am Ukrainian and English my second language. I am sorry for grammar errors and weird wording in advance.

Looking good. Uses the whole of the screen now, without wasting all that white space down the sides.
I know the upgrade isn't complete yet, but I've noticed that my avatar has changed places with my photo. I thought I would mention it, in case it was an unintentional bug. Or is it just the colours that have changed? My avatar was blue, and my photo was red. They are now transposed.

Answer: During the upgrade I had to choose what to use by default for each member: picture from album or uploaded avatar. I decided to choose avatar, thus some users without avatars have now default pictures. Also, all animated gif-avatars (small images) were transformed to non-animated 'gif's.
Solution: Please wait a few days until gallery upgrade will be done. If you don't want to wait you can reload your avatar now. BTW, you can access your old profile at http://www.acne.org/messageboard_bc/
Also, the authorization via FaceBook will be available soon, I will try to enable using facebook avatars too.

pics! the img code stuff, so that we can post pics in our posts without attaching them as files :/

Answer: Fixed.
At this point you have to go to 'More reply options' to attach pictures.
I will add "spoiler" and "video" buttons to bb-code menu. S

I just noticed that on the main forum page, the text in the Logs section reads,

Personal regimen logs
Acne.org Regimen logs,
Accutane logs,
Topical retinoids (Retin-A, Differin, Tazorac, etc.) logs,
Diet/Holistic logs,
Antibiotic logs,
Non-inflamed Acne Regimen Logs,
Hormone / birth control logs
Keep a personal log of your acne regimen. If you are using the Acne.org Regimen, Accutane, or topical retinoids please post your log in the subforums below.

Since the subforums are listed above the forum description, should that be changed to "...please post your log in the subforums above.".?
Also, I'm not seeing any buttons for text editing (bold, italic, indent, etc.). Am I just blind, or are they not there?

Answer:
1) thank you for noticing. Forum description is changed.
2) You have to click on reply field to activate bb-codes menu.

I can't preview my posts, unless I'm overlooking something. I don't know if this is just a little thing you guys are already aware of. So far it looks pretty sleek. Posted Image

Answer:
You can't preview only quick answers.
You can go to "More reply Options" to access full functionality and preview your post.

Looks fantastic!
Main menu has a problem on my screen though (the "home, get clear" menu). It appears to be completely floated to the left, so on a large resolution the main menu hovers over the grey background.
Applying min-width: 980px; max-width: 1200px; margin: 0 auto; CSS rules to the main menu fixed it for me.

Answer:
Do you still have this bug? (I made some changes before read your post) Please let me know what browser/version/screen resolution do you use and I will run additional tests.

Hey, well done Seva (and team) the new look is great - I love it.... (even if I did choose to ignore the warning that entries will be lost and so have lost a few days of my blog....arrrgh)

Just one question, we used to be able to see how many 'views' there were on blogs, but now it doesn't show. Is this going to be added back in?

I hate it. It's so large and when I'm in one forum I can't jump to other forums from there. I can't see where I replied in topics that have new posts. It's chaotic to read.

It was fine before. I don't come on here all the time, so I don't think it's because I was so used to the old version, but idk. It's just harder to read now.

Whenever I click on a picture thumbnail in a thread to view it in full size, it just forever sits there without loading. Is there something I need to do first? I've tried 2 computers and 3 different browsers. Thanks.

Same problem here. There's some issues with the attachment tool, apparently. Seems like this error occurs when clicking an attachment that was posted before the forum upgrade. There's another issue with attachments posted after that: they don't show up in the post itself, but if you click them, the full size image appears without a problem. They're still working on the forums, bug fixes, etc., so hopefully this will be solved soon.

Fixed

Looking good so far!

I would like to suggest that you re-add the ability to "quick view" posts in a board by just hovering over the title like before. This saves time if I just want to peak at the first post without actually going into the thread and then having to press the back button if I don't feel like replying.

Answer: This very useful option is replaced by the button "Preview".
Please see attachment.

I would appreciate it if we could get the 'Top' button back so we can quickly return to the top of the page once we've read everything.



Answer:
Please find an arrow on the bottom in the center.

I cant seem to load up a profile picture/avatar?

Fixed
This was a temporary bug.
The workaround is to upload any picture in gallery and use it as the avatar.

I thought no one else had replied to this thread, as I wasn't receiving notification emails.

Even though my notification options are set to "Auto follow topics I reply to.", the method of receiving them has been left blank. I have ticked the email box for each event. Hopefully I will start getting notifications again.

Also just noticed that the link in my sig takes me to the Gallery home page, instead of my gallery. Will this be fixed, or shall I search for my gallery photos & change the link in my sig.?

edit...changed the link in my sig. It's unlikely that the old link would have been fixed.

Are you going to add/fix it so I can access other forums from the bottom of the page instead of having to go back up to 'message boards' each time?

A: we add "Jump to..." button in the right bottom corner that follow you.
Feedback on this button is welcome.
