Ummm dude... this is going to take awhile to get used to. Wow... at this point I'm not a fan... but I will reserve judgement for a later period once I've had some adjustment time.

Is the new site open to everyone cuz I am still using the IP and I am too lazy to change it back to see?

Way too early to judge my friend. I will be interested to see how week one goes. See what becomes the sort of new "norm" around here. So far I dig it.

If you had an account in the old system, you should be able to use your email to request a new password (passwords are encrypted so we couldn't bring them over). That way you will carry on with your old account which has your post count, sign up date, etc. Go here to request a new password for your account: http://www.wakeworld.com/lostpass.php

Hey Dave,

It's just that it's new at this point. It's new colour schemes and all that, it's just not what I'm used to. That's why I'm saying that I'll reserve judgement for a period after I've had a chance to adapt to the new site.

The homepage did take a bit of visual digestion as all these loud colours were thrown at me that I wasn't expecting, but again I'll reserve judgement.

I need to play with the site, see how it functions and all that. I also find that I'm needing to adjust to the user names of everyone after seeing first and last names for so long.

If I have any technical issues though I shall bring them to your attention, how would you best like us to do that? Email you? Or maybe you could start a stickied discussion if you already haven't that keeps it at the top of the page?

It looks cool

I believe that much of the criticism you may receive is because everything is new.

This is the first time I have logged into the new system, and yes I am uncomfortable with it. I also had to create a new account, but that was because I couldn't remember all my old info. It will take some time for me to get used to it.

I will say though, that this site looks much more professional and pleasing to my eyes. I think that this was a great move for biz, and once everyone gets used to it, which shouldn't take long, you will be very happy.

Great Work

All the new features are awesome, and the community stuff will only continue to get better, only wish there was another theme without such in your face colors, I feel like forums with mostly white as a background is too hard on the eyes...

And did the system switch break all the old pictures? I can't get any pictures in old posts to show up in Chrome.

Hmm works for me. Any luck on the secondary themes with darker, cooler colors idea? I don't have much experience with vBulletin, but I'm sure many people with less than stellar eyesight similar to mine would be extremely thankful. Black on gray > black on white

I do like that idea. I would like a softer color background too, so it's on the list. Unfortunately, there are a lot of items in front of it!

Hey Dave....so far easy to use. I think it is just so new and different....it will take time to get used to...doesn't mean its not good. If this was our first time on we wouldn't know the difference. But nice job....and thanks for wanting to make an improvement.

PS..the REAL test will be the photo upload

Glad its back up and running, I was going through withdrawls!!! Definately a different look and will take getting used to and learn how to use. Like how you post updates on the home page.
Otherwise I do like it. As long as the same helpful people stay active on here, I am happy!! Thanks for all your hard work!

I'll chime in and say that I don't think I like not being able to read all the posts without clicking on them directly. Is there anyway we can get a display mode that will show all the text of every post? OR, maybe that is the "Hybrid" mode? However, when using that the ordering of the posts is pretty messy.

The only thing that I'm finding annoying is the username system here. Now I gotta go back through and relearn everyone's names on the site, but other than that, it's pretty sick. It does feel a little bit more cluttered, but I thinkthat is in part to the fact that the forum is in the center of the screen instead of the entire thing, like the old forums were. Iron, what areyou talking about not being able to read all of the text for posts? I haven't come across this. That sounds like a scary problem, especially for those of us who like those political topics with the mega posts that come every two or three posts.


And I took a close to 800 post count hit. Ahhhh nooooo. My almost 3 years of posting has been undid in a weekend. =P Jk, who caress.

Agree on being busy, and would like to change my name up as it used to be opposite.

Seems it moved to what others use, I like how the old was, but I'm also into being basic. Once we get used to it we won't even remember the old one

Man, this thing is different. At first I was totally taken Back, honeslty for a half a second I thought I clicked the wrong favorite in my bookmarks, I thought I hit Alliancewake.com. I looks great overall. Its kinda like a new car. Looks pretty but will take some getting used too. I think the hardest adjustment for me will the the forums. I really do like the fact that on the homepage or any page for that matter all the flashing banners a gone for the most part.

I think the hardest part so far was figuring out home to login to the forum, I never had to use my email before!

Also, is there a test thread where we can try posting images and what not... just to get used to it.. so we dont clutter up the main forums with test threads...
