    Ok. It seems that I can't make a post anymore. I made couple of attempts already, and it won't allow me to post. What the bloody hell. ~X(

    To be specific, I can't post in the Lucasfilm thread for some odd reason.

    Short answer: that post was flagged by the spam filter. Your account is now verified as a non-spammer, so that won't happen again.

    edit: And that means the posts you made have all appeared. All of them. :p
    Got a question or gripe about the new forum software? It might be covered in the FAQ.

    And I was SO CLOSE to 1000 likes! You bastards reset the like counter! Now I will have to resort to posting nudes to compensate! FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFfffffffffuuu
    This was exactly my complaint :(
    I didn't have near 1k likes (holy piss grats on that), but I was rocking a pretty solid like:post*2 ratio that I was proud of.

    Seems kind of easy to abuse isn't it? If you say something unpopular what's to stop people from spam reporting you into oblivion?

    A bit in the rules where it says that abusing the report function nets you an infraction...

    If replacing the forum software isn't an option, then at the very least fix this shit up!

    - Fix the layout and how it looks in different resolutions, @ 1080p the header section isn't full, it doesn't extend throughout the screen and a portion of it is left blank.
    - The "Strategy Zone"section on the main page of the forums is a complete mess with the way sub-forums are sorted.
    - How about you add some hover effects to the main categories in the header ("Forums", "Discussion", "Activity"..etc)? It looks and feels so cheap right now.
    - There's no need for a billion options to mark posts (off topic, disagree, agree, like), "Like" alone IMO is fine, if you really want to keep the disagree option which alone will cause more crying on these boards than necessary, then remove the "Like" option and keep the other two.
    - Add a dark skin, the all white theme is really annoying for a lot of people and strains the eyes.
    - For whatever reason, the way the total numbers look (e.g 5k instead of 5000) feels really cheap to me.


    I didn't even check if the forum's features function properly, like subscribing to topics and editing stuff, the current forum software is so damn bad I don't even feel like browsing the forums anymore, this is coming from an SRK forum whore.

    Edit : Fixed something in my post and yet another annoying thing came up, the red note that mentions I edited my post a minute after posting it, make it so it doesn't come up if the post was edited within only an hour after posting it. People make some typos and like to quickly fix 'em sometimes, there's no need to let the whole world know about it in bright red colors lol.

    Not "free". It's part of the cost of the software. From what I can tell, you have two options: Vanilla Open Source which YOU host, YOU fix, YOU design, YOU YOU YOU. Then there is Vanilla Hosted, where you are paying them to host your forum for a fee each month. A site this large isn't paying anything less than $150 a month just for the forum hosting. And that's only 300,000 page views a month. I'm thinking we're on the $550 plan, which grants a million views.

    This Vanilla crap is beyond a real pain in the ass to deal with in front of the scenes for a variety of reasons.

    I guess the easiest way to make a forum faster is to cut down one's userbase by 90% via making the forum so ugly and shit that nobody wants to open it, but I'm not sure whether that counts as an actual solution~

    So, now that things are getting better here, here's a list of things that should be fixed in order to make this place better (without changing the forum software (vBulletin please)):

    1. Darken all gray sections to increase contrast. This includes the postbit (user info), post dividers, sig line, etc.
    2. Darken the link text. Light blue on white is stupid and bad user experience.
    3. There are too many alignment issues. Sigs should line up with content. Edit information should line up with content.
    4. Change edit text color to black or dark grey and italicize it.
    5. Increase the content text size.
    6. Postbit hierarchy should be Username, Avatar, Usertitle, Access Group. Anything else looks sloppy.
    7. Once the gray areas and links have been darkened, darken EVERYTHING by 10-15%. This decreases eye strain.

    I recognize that not all of these changes will get implemented, but they're all good and would dramatically decrease the complaints you'll receive (at least from me).

    So who wants blurry avatars?!

    I think the people  who changed their avatars, those got blurry when they switched back to the big ones. Those who kept their original avatars after the upgrade (downgrade is more like it), they seem to be fine.

    At least, that's what it seems like.

    EDIT: Or it might be when people try to put a up profile picture. Seems like the profile picture is connected to your avatar picture. I could have sworn they were separate on the old SRK.
