    Much Needed? Can you say BULSHIT?!?!?!?!

    We recently made some much-needed changes to our forums. Because of the high volume of traffic and activity caused by our active and growing fan-base, we switched our forums platform to a hosted solution that offers substantially more options and the ability to handle more traffic.

    We're aware that there will be some growing pains for the users and we will be monitoring the boards for suggestions.

    The moderators have created a dynamic post that covers tips and features associated with the new forums.

    Go forth and POST!

    Interestingly enough, once the changes were made, the high volume of traffic and activity wa s dramatically reduced because of the changes.
    speaking of people that don't come around often... image how the heck have you been?

    Yeah, with the fixes from MikeD88, it is a new and more pleasant experience. Somehow though, the whole vibe on here is different. Makes me sad. Will we ever find our forum vibe again?

    no,,its gone

    I have had lost my will to check and post many times a day. The interface is just bad, and the writing too small.

    I agree...the vibe here just seems "different"...honestly the majority of people that I consider friends from this community, I'm in touch with them through fb...including people that aren't here anymore..and lately that seems like an easier way to keep in touch...

    I hope the vibe returns, Leezestarr. It was definitely damaged by the shitty format changes. A big part of the problem could be related to the lack of communication from 10 C. I PM'ed mods a few times and got very considerate responses but why hasn't there been more general communication toward all members on the forum itself with regard to the changes and the problems so many have talked about. Did I miss something here?

    Mayday, use the fix! It makes it all better!

    I think that if everybody would just use this fix (I know I sound like a broken record), and then get over the annoyance of the initial change, everyone will feel better. And I think the vibe will come back. It's not been very long since the switch. Things like that don't go away that easily - it wasn't the board that made the vibe, it was the people. 100%. The people haven't died.

    Yeah, well IE is the worst browser you could use Chadwick. It absolutely sucks compared to Firefox and Chrome. So you are not doing yourself any favours by sticking with it. It seems to me that you are willfully rejecting a good thing, in terms of both your default browser and the 10C forum script fix. Stop being stubborn, and make things better for yourself.

    No, we shouldn't have to rely on a member for a fix, but that's the way the cookie has crumbled. At least there is a fix. Glass half full! ;)
    FWIW, I don't think you're a dork for being here, or we are all dorks for being here, so same diff. image :-B

    It is incompatible with a lot of things, it's generally slower, it has problems with a lot of websites' functionality...... Firefox is just as simple (it's basically the same). It just works better. But hey, just trying to offer a suggestion - if you prefer the inferior browser and shitty forum, enjoy! ;)

    Wait, do you mean this forum format will stay?
    I just thought they had their servers crashed or something and this was the back-up plan.
    So I was sideways waiting for them to fix it to the old one.

    Hey Chad! I think you would actually like Chrome or Firefox. They look and work in a much simpler way than IE.
    And here's a little teaser to all the doubters of the script:

    Here's the link to the thread with the script:

    It does make this forum readable and usable again! It is worth a try image

    Hmmm. Have you deactivated the old script, Dimi? What does it look like for you? Can you make a screenshot?

    The categories site looks like in my screenshot. The discussions site and participated look a little less like the old board, but they are still superior to the vanilla forum style.

    Hmmm. That is weird. Maybe post it over in the malarky thread? Maybe it has to do with your screen resolution. It looks like it's more spread than on my screenshot. Hmmm ...

    I hesitate to re-install Firefox, I had to wipe my computer clean, start fresh, and re-load the back-up files because FF kept giving me errors and randomly freezing up on my computer.

    Still don't like the sterile feeling of the forum.
