      So far the only thing really bothering me are the pm's. Great work in such short time. Always remember most people are afraid of change.

      The problem is, the longer the old urls are broken, the more likely that Google will simply scrub them from its results and crawler lists.
      They need to be back up soon.


      I'll request this again. Please please please, add the relevant forum to each row in the Subscribed threads list.
      Right now if your subscribed threads are up to date, then that page is pretty much a dead end. It used to make a great
      jump off point to all the forums you're active in.

      Yeah it is true that this whole process is going to kind of mess up the google crawler for a bit but I am sure it will sort itself out eventually.

      I also agree with the request to have the Forums listed in watched topics. I used the forum links quite often from there myself as well.

      Technically your not even supposed to be here since I don't think they gave anyone the URL here. Can't edit all the 140+ templates overnight to make it look cherry.

      i can only imagine the groups that will be created :rofl

      btw can we get the old laugh back please?

      one more request, i'm sure this forum makes $ so perhaps pay a professional to make you guys a skin that resembles the old one more?

      in the old column format of:

      Title, Creator, Date, Posts, Views . some php & css knowledge is all it would take 0.02

      All my threads have all the image tabs broken. I estimate at least 8 hours to fix all of the threads I have had over the years on vortex.

      Still, I spent all day trying to get on here thinking it was still just "down". At least add a note that gives people the current correct address. If I was trying to sell things on here I would be losing it by this point.

      GOod work getting this so far in so short a time period. I cant believe all of the nit picky things people are worried about in here...give it some fricken time!!! At least the forums themselves are working.

      If I remember correctly, I believe they were intentionally trying to limit the amount of traffic due to their current server hardware situation.

      Can we get rid of gradient backgrounds in treads list. old forum was 10 time easier to read, now all you see is light blue text on light blue background.
      like this:


      I think it looks cleaner too.

      Please DON'T get rid of the post numbers. They are hotlinks that allow you to easily point someone to a specific post in a thread. That was probably the one single thing that used to frustrate me with the ZF software (besides the useless SEARCH) was that there was no easy way to provide a link to a certain post.

      The one other suggestion I'd have is to relocate the Report Post icon (Exclamation Point inside Triangle) that is in the bottom left corner of every post (when viewed with IE8). I'd put it back where it was in the ZF world under the username section if you can, or move it to the post header line with the post time/date stamp and the post number like many other forums have it.

      The strangest thing for me is that right now things don't look the same across IE8 versus FireFox. Perhaps there is an obvious explanation for this, but in case someone wants to investigate I took a pair of identical screenshots from this thread for comparison:

      IExplorer 8 view: http://i44.tinypic.com/2hem5a9.jpg

      Firefox 3.6.3 view: http://i43.tinypic.com/rcoqw8.jpg

      If it is not obvious, Firefox is missing this button: and the Multi-Quote icon and a few other things as well.

      I'm not seeing any of those problems with FF3.6.3. Make sure you don't have an interfering add-on (like FireVortex).
      You've got some sort of font problem as well, as your FF fonts look pixelated when they should be smooth, at any font size.

      What are image tabs? and what are you referring to that needs to be fixed?

      To the admins-

      Simple request- Could you post a link to the new vortex when people type in www.vwvortex.com and click on forums? I had to google different search keywords when I was at work because I forgot what the new link was. This is probably half the reason why 80% of the people still arent on new vortex. Thank you.

      You've got some sort of font problem as well, as your FF fonts look pixelated when they should be smooth, at any font size.

      Interesting - I very rarely use FireFox but now I've opened it again to play around with it and everything is fine.

      i suspect the issue is related to a slow temp server and jQuery not kicking in to load those components.

      Instead of going tapatalk, please consider the iPhone skin for vBulletin.

      costs nothing, and works really well on the other forums that have it. Also, there's a NSFW skin that hides all images, but you can see, and click the link.

      Will stickied threads like this be updated for the new format?
