Not to insist, but you should really change the warning on the new log in for the forum to say "use this link (change password page) to reset your password for the new forum; your old password is acceptable for all fields."
People think they have to go and do all the reset password stuff, which is several times more work than is needed, and would be very frustrating.

I'm not sure what borkedness I should be seeing in that thread? How are the sigs borked? Images/bbcode not working?


Look at the first character of each line in that post. It looks to me like the data was saved in latin-1 encoding and the new phpbb reports itself as utf8. Yay for utf8, but you'll need to fix the old data.

That's a preference thing. I personally prefer scanning the titles rather than the icons.

That would be fine, if they were synced. They aren't. At the moment I have multiple bold topic titles which show up as read on the icons (I have read them).

Re: the display, I'd like one of these two:

You can do the latter with positioning and transparencies, I think. No need to create variants of the images.

Weird! I wonder why that is.

I'm really not digging the ENORMOUS GLOBE OF ONLINE STATUS. It sticks out a bit like a sore thumb, and is a bit color-blindness unfriendly. Attaching it to the faction image makes it harder to see, and makes the faction image less clear.

I would almost prefer the same image we have now, but significantly smaller, and perhaps underneath the other fields.

Hmm...

But with the titles about one or two font sizes smaller.

I like them big and obtrusive...so what if it's size depended on the length of the post?
Edit:oh... titles, I misread it as tiles. The titles should be shrunk a bit.

Yessh. Good plan. Just moments ago I mistook Marcus Cunningham to be a new Skyrate named "Mentor".

On a tangentially related topic, thanks be that it remembers unread posts across logout-login.

I actually found that rather annoying. I liked being able to just quit my browser and come back to "Unread posts since last visit" rather than "All posts you haven't read".

On a forum index page (be it main, forum group, or forum) there will be a link in the upper-right "Mark forums read". This'll clear the unread posts in the way you desire, though I concede it takes an extra click per visit.
