      i have my wheels for sale and i had a couple of people IM me for questions. i dont see an IM History anymore im assuming its been replaced with Private Messages but, I dont see any users in there.Do i have to find the users or wait for them to IM me back??? or will my IM History from before be transfered to Private Messages? I also noticed Watched topics is the same deal. Do i have to go back to those threads and resubscribe?....oh yea and btw i like the old smiley faces better no more headbang,screwy, or cheers icon.....and i dont see an IM button under the users anymore

      The background is the same, the headers need to be darker like they used to be, as can be seen here

      We are going to tweak the color settings today so it looks like what you are used to.

      Unfortunately these could not be copied to vBulletin, as the way they are handled is completely different.

      Same goes for saved posts and your notepad. I really wish we could have given you guys some notice beforehand, but with the negotiations taking place, we were unable to do so.

      Please keep the comments/suggestions coming.

      Maybe if you guys set up a donation section, we could help you guys with payments, if thats an issue,
      i dont mind sending you guys 5 bucks once in a while,

      im sure a lot of us have saved a lot of money and time thanks to the vortex,

      and out of the million people on here everyday, im sure it will be a significant amount to help...

      In the next couple of days or so. We have to have a custom search package done since we have so many threads.

      Do you mean the number of actual threads on one page? I have it set at 30 for vb, whereas ZF was set to just a max page length. Overall I think the length of the page is similar, as the vB thread titles are a little bit thicker. This is something we can tweak, however.

      Yes I know the subscribed threads are there, I meant a link to where the threads in the subscriptions originated from, like threads from the MK4 forums having a link under the specific thread to the MK4 forum itself. Sorry if I didn't word it well before

      I meant the number of posts in each thread, I know there's an option to change it under preferences but I think the default number of posts per page in a thread was more than the current default

      BTW you guys are doing a great job with this move, really very pleased with how you guys are making do with the crappy situation

      It shows the subscribed thread title, but it doesn't show what forum that thread came from.

      Currently there is no way to auto subscribe to threads that you post in WITHOUT getting emails (which is how the old forums used to work) can this be changed?

      Yeah for ZF it was 35 posts a page and it was nice that it was locked like that (not changeable by users) so everyones page breaks are always at the same place...

      The whole "watched topics" thing didn't translate to vB. However, the topics are still there, just you'll have to find them again.
