NEW FORUM: General feedback

#1
Please post general feedback here, regarding the forum configuration, plugins etc.

Please post mobile & responsive design issues / suggestions in this thread.

Some notes:

- This is not a finalized design. I will continue to improve it.
- It's a big change, I know. Give it a few days you'll probably start to like it.
- It IS more colorful and different from the old design. This is intended.

New index page: The biggest change is that the index page which will always show the recent discussions without having to click "Show recent posts" and the like. And you see more Recent Topics than the old forum used to show at the top of the page. This may get a little used to but I think you'll like it.

Responsive design: Google now ranks mobile friendly sites higher on mobile searches, so a change was necessary in order to ensure the forum is attractive to phone and tablet users, as well as maintain healthy traffic. The previous design was pretty much unusable for phones and small tablets. You had to pinch and zoom everywhere. No longer. Try resizing your window smaller on a desktop and you'll see it works all the way down to 480px.

New forum software: you have now access to these new features:

- Rich Text Editor
- Video embedding
- Send and receive PMs, you can export them
- Rate other user's posts to show your appreciation (we can discuss plugin alternatives for this)
- Save drafts of a new posts or topic
- Quick Search a thread (see bottom of thread page)
- Quick Search a forum (see bottom of forum page)
- etc

Not so obvious features:

- Forum Statistics (found in index sidebar)
- Forum Team (our moderators) (found in index sidebar)
- Click the Replies in the thread list and a popup will show everyone who posted in the thread and how many replies

Statistics from the upgrade:
  • 5560 internal links were updated, 80 are broken (deleted threads/posts)
  • 3995 YouTube video embeds (unlabeled links were converted to a video embed)
  • 5300+ members, all spam bots accounts were cleaned up
  • 229,000+ posts converted
  • 13,360+ threads
Using Reputation
* Click the heart next to "Reply" in a person's post, or "Rate" on a person's profile.
* There is only one rate per post and per profile.
* You can remove a rate / like, by going to the person's profile  > Reputation > Details and delete it from there.
* You can leave a message (think like a guest book)

F.A.Q. / Troubleshooting
* Use the free Google Japanese IME instead of Microsoft's if you have trouble with the Rich Text Editor. Alternatively, set the editor to "source" by default in your Profile > Edit Options > Other Options.
