I kinda agree with Marika, but I'm already getting used to the new background as it is. I like the change a lot, it's refreshing!


One bug I noticed, I can't view the pics in my user albums anymore. They are there apparently, but when I want to check them they aren't displayed for some reason.

Wow, I really hate the new design. Way, way too busy. The giant banner is completely unnecessary and obnoxious, and the background needs to just be a solid color. On the plus side, this could reduce my posting frequency ;)

The menu and news banner takes too much space. It is annoying when you have to scroll down as soon as you have opened a thread.

It is also a little disturbing when the background changes its size as soon as you resize the window.

The buttons to report, quote and edit a post is a bit hard to see.

And I think that some posts have been lost during the migration.

For me the forum is all black now, with white font, and the background is gone. Maybe they are making a few adjustments?

Now that I had more time to look around and see what's new I could form a better opinion. I hope they keep the background, I really like it. I like the change and all, but a few things are unneccessary (like the "what's new" feature, I probably won't use it very often). I don't mind the new banner, and there are now more smileys to choose from (not very important, but still a nice addition). Transparent posting area didn't really work with the new background - I liked the way it looked a lot, but it was a bit distracting, maybe they could make it better with a few tweaks (for examle, if they changed it so that we could still see the background through it, but would be more blurred or something like that), but even if it would be left as it is now I could get used to it.

Whatever they do, they should deffinitely keep the new album's theme :)

Edit: nevermind, maybe it was just my firefox crashing that caused the background to disappear. Or someone divided by zero.

It's a bit like finding a post of yours as first comment ;) ....too much space and scroll down to the next one. But yeah, it was better without it. I still have the background which is a little eye annoying. It would be cool to have a black background for the threads, and the sides with the image of the bench, the guy on the left and the man on the right. I don't know if it's clear what I mean..

I guess every once in a while it's necessary to have change for the sake of unnecessary change. First of all the whole white on light gray theme makes it impossible to see. Are we actually trying to get people to post less? Takes me forever to find the reply button.

That bench is totally emo and I hate it already. Mostly because of how transparent the background is, making it hard to read.

Oh yay, a banner. We talked about making this site more like Facebook. Instead, we might be sucessful in making it more like Myspace. Everything under my profile, from activity to freinds to photos, has nothing.

I do like the reorganization of the stuff above where I post. It looks more like Microsoft Word, and a bit more advanced. However, it's also a bit weird. Example:



hey look



I can make a table




(I think)



Go ahead and try to make a table. It's too hard to be functional. Hoping it's fixed instead of scrapped.

New smileys/icons are too small for me to really tell what half of them are doing.

I understand/hope this is a beta. And so here's a useful thread for feedback. Post yours

Yep, that's the only complaint I'd have really... When you're replying though, the message background gets darker... if that could be implemented for the actual messageboard layout, it'd be better. Not so hard on the eyes. lol

@dexter12296566: The banner from the home page with all the band news and info was also on top of the messageboard when it came back, but it has now been removed, thankfully. xD

Now the only problem I really have, is not being able to split posts into paragraphs. When you're typing your post out, you can split up paragraphs, but when you hit "submit reply", and your message is actually posted on the board, there is no space between the paragraphs. Which makes posts look very untidy and sloppy.

Oh and yep, the old smileys were much better! lol (there should be a space between this sentence and the first paragraph. But as you can see, in the posted message, the space has been removed, and the two paragraphs are now conjoined...)

Your post looks fine for me, nicely separated.

Sara MZK

You should still be able to put an actual space between seperate paragraphs though... I guess my previous post doesn't look too bad, but that's because it's short. If you were to make a long post with say 4 or 5 spaces between different paragraphs, it would look very untidy with no spaces between them... lol

And yep, I think the transparency has been reduced. It's much easier on the eye now, but retains the cool look it had previously. :)

On this page, scroll all the way down to where it says "The Offspring [Black]". There's a style called "The Offspring [White]".
If some of you could try it out and leave your opinion here in a comment, that would be very helpful.

Alternatively, click here for The Offspring [White] (http://www.offspring.com/newcommunity/forum.php?styleid=6) and here for The Offspring [Black] (http://www.offspring.com/newcommunity/forum.php?styleid=2).

More than one line of space between paragraphs is useless and obnoxious. Besides telling a "scroll down for the punch line" joke, there is no reason for it and complaining about it is dumb. If we wanted to tell a joke by stretching out our post past the screen back in the day, we had to use our brains to make it work. Not having that ability automatically enabled, can help keep some newbie posts from being as annoying as they are. Its similar to the 10 character rule. I don't understand at all how this could be a problem. It would be nice if we could use the TAB key though.

I'm not a fan of the white scheme. Its rather bright. I had to turn my screen down. It is easier to read, but distracting when I'm trying to watch tv.

I like the mobile version. It loads so much faster on my phone. Is there a way for the page to automatically go to that if you are on your phone? 'Cause I only discovered it when I switched back to the black version.

Rooster

I never mentioned anything about more than one line of space between paragraphs. So calling me dumb for something which I never even complained about, is in itself pretty dumb. You've simply misread what I meant. I was meaning if you made a post with say, 4 paragraphs in it, you'd need to be able to make 4 spaces IN TOTAL (not all inbetween the same paragraph), in your post, or else it would look untidy, and amateurish.

Funnily enough, when I switched to the white scheme, posts recently made with paragraphs (with a space between them) had the space visible. However, when I switched back to the black scheme, the same posts had all their paragraphs conjoined together... strange...

I love the white scheme on the main forum page, the skull logos look awesome on the white background! Overall though, I prefer the black background. It looks better to me, now that the background isn't as transparent as before. :)

Nope, that didn't work, but thanks for trying to help. :) Srangely, the problem only seems to occur when it's the black scheme.

And the black scheme is the one I prefer! lol

Ah, I've just discovered the problem.... It's a browser issue. When I switched to firefox, the paragraphs are seperated as normal, even with the black scheme. But with Internet Explorer (which is the primary browser I use), they are conjoined, but only with the black scheme, it works fine with the white. So it seems more like a browser issue, than with the messageboard... :confused:

In the new search, is there a way to display results as posts rather than threads? I've personally never thought there was much use for showing results as threads, but in the past it's been incredibly easy to simply show them as posts.

Also, when you search for posts made by a specific user, it only shows threads started by that person as opposed to any posts they've made.

Thanks

Under the search thingy at the top right of the forums, hit 'Advanced Search'. Then at the top left of the search section, click 'Search Single Content Type'. A different page appears, under 'Additional Options' where it says 'Show Results As' check 'Posts'

The same search method also displays posts made by specific users.

I'm getting used to the new look and I like. Just one thing, since the main theme is now blue it would be intresting to see blu skulls for the new posts logo... It seems they don't fit in red :)

When you select the "search thread/forum" quick search, instead of the one at the top, the letters are white on white so that you can't see what you are trying to type.

Oh OK. I assumed I was already looking at "Single Content Type" when I first clicked Advanced Search, so I hit "Multiple Content Type" and couldn't tell how it was different. It's weird that Multiple Content Type is the default setting- somehow I'm more used to seeing the default setting listed to the left of the other settings. Seems to make more sense.

We should have a third style that looks like the old community. Me and Tijs have both told the admin about it and I want to know if you like the idea.

What is the purpose of the 'Text Enhance' function?

Why am I only allowed to use 1 000 characters in my signature including BB code?

Maybe it is to enhance text. I am guessing. But it seems feasible, my love.

This happens when my mouse moves over 'online' above the Text Enhance image. I have also found a few others on the BBS. Could it be my browser, if so, how do I fix it?

Tijs

Yeah that's not the forums. That's a program on your computer doing that. What browser are you on?

edit: I see it, Chrome..

Google Chrome

You've got some software installed on your computer that changes text to links to create annoying advertisements. Go to your computer's control panel --> and then Uninstall A Program and see what you can uninstall there.

Or check what add ons you've got running on Chrome that you're not familiar with or that might be causing this.

In your list of PMs, click the check box to the right of each message that you'd like to delete. Then, scroll to the bottom of the list and click the Selected messages drop-down menu. Click the radio button for "Delete," then click Proceed.

Text in CODE tags are difficult to read for me. It is white text on bright grey background.

can we still edit the title of a thread we made? if so how?

We've never been able to do that. Only the moderators can change the title of a thread, at least as far as I've ever known.

I used to get requests all the time to change titles of threads before the redesign because others couldn't do it. Hmm.

Users were never able to do it. You can edit the first post's title though, until after 2 weeks of posting.

I think that if you edit your posts title with 1 or 2 minutes after posting it, it also changes the thread title.

I may be dumb and lazy to figure it out, but how do I upload pictures to my profile now? :confused: When I hit "upload pictures" some file manager shows up, I can see the pictures in the albums, in the file manager...
