Re: Please use the 'Temporary Chat Section' for now

Has to be said Azz, the amount of time and effort you're putting into all of this is admirable and, joking aside about my b'ah humbug posts, highly appreciated.

I trust there will still be the opportunity to subscribe some financial proceeds as a token of gratitude? Think that some of us (specifically me!!) who use the forum a lot might give serious consideration to putting our hands in our pockets to contribute towards running costs a bit.

After all, I donate to a few other places such as Wiki and examsolutions.net, and I use them far less that I use your gaff.

Re: Please use the 'Temporary Chat Section' for now

The updates sound very exciting. I hope will can upload full size photos without using a photo storing website. That would be a very appreciated upgrade. Iíd really like to share mire photos.

Thank you for doing all of this Azz.
Itís very kind of you.

Here's some things it can do that this one can't:

- Automatically embed videos or photos into the post if their link/URL is on a separate line
- Do the same as above with links to BBC news stories, Tweets, etc
- Drag photos into the reply box for them to upload!
- @mention people - and they get notified they were mentioned!
- Get a notification if your thread is moved or edited and also be shown what was edited (so the before and after state)
- Get weekly digest emails if you haven't been online in a while
- Reply to threads by email

...and lots more
I will be
That's so true. It'll finally bring it up to date. I've seen a much needed change of software elsewhere twice and both turned out to be a great success. No one wanted the old software back.
Thanks for your effort. Can't wait to see and use the result.

You must know that you can never keep everybody happy but we'll get used to the new style . . . . eventually.
That's very true Zaphod, but I hope most of you will like the new look

Incidentally Azz, will all the little fellows in the emoji section still be the same or will there be some new ones?
Awesome! Re the whip-round, you better see what it's like first - you might hate it

Re emojis, we'll be getting new ones (like the ones on modern phones). I am not sure what to do about our old ones tho - I love them, but unfortunately they are very old and are not high res, so if we do add them, it would be only some of them and it would mean it would restrict the size of the new ones since the old ones are slightly smaller ...which would make the new ones look worse as they were designed to work at slight larger sizes... so as of right now, we're definitely getting new ones but not sure about our old ones

That's very kind of you Dex! We do have a sub system already in place here ...but I'm not sure yet how we'll handle them on the new forum..

You're welcome Bratti and I hope you like it and yes, you will be able to upload larger photos (although we will probably tweak the settings over time - to reach a good balance of size and space on the drive/speed)

I'm glad you are Art! And guess what!? I'm currently going through some of the most popular threads from each section (to move them to the open forum from the archive - so the new forum doesn't look 'dead' ) and loads of threads you have started are cropping up as some of the most popular ones

I agree, and a reminder please when it has been a year since we last put our hand in our pocket.
