    I thought something was different. I've got to stop dissapearing for days.

    Are the bold titles gone? They seem to be on my end. I hope not, it made things so much easier when looking for new posts.

    The bold titles are still there for threads containing new posts. This has not changed since Saturday.

    dang miss a few days and what happens? EVERYTHING CHANGES! Freaky...no I think I like it, although I don't know about the color scheme....(of course my room is 6 different colors, so my advice probably isn't worth much)

    New stuff is wierd...

    Okay it's really alright, I just gotta get used to it. What's up with being prompted to log on right away since "I am not allowed to view this page"? As soon as I go back to the main page and hit the forum button again the prompt disappears and voila! The page is viewed without me logging in. Will that change later when you finish converting the style?

    Typically, it's best if you login and out before and after each forum session. When you login the prompt goes away. There is a logout button in the top right-hand corner.

    What page are you not able to see if you aren't loged in? This may be that way be design or it might be something that needs to be adjusted.

    I think it might be something that needs adjusted, I don't think it should do that. I've noticed it too and it seems strange to me, I think it's used when you set the message board to only be viewed by people who are logged in. It's obviously not enforced though, so you can get around it without much of a problem. Just click the drop-down box and select a forum, should take you there without the 'not logged in' page showing up again.

    Besides that, I think the new look is great. :)

    After hitting the "forum" button under the otter playing banjo (on the main page), I see the forum as usual, then immediately I get a prompt to login listing 4 reasons I may need to do this. One reason is something like, "You may not be able to access this page without logging in". But there is no need for me to log in. I can access the page fine if I hit my browser's back button and hit the "forum" under the otter again. The second time there is no prompt to log in. I view the forum without a problem- never having logged in. My question is, why is the prompt there if anyone can view the page without logging in?

    Some of the words in some posts overlap. One example is the quote from the person you reply to, and the first line of the resonse. Will that go away when you are finished with the style change?

    I think it looks awsome Philip, good job, its going to take some time to get used to, but change is good. I think though that everyone will have problems with it cuz they were so used to the other that they could like function everything on the site, be half asleep/blind and still know where to click, they just have to pay attention now! lol, oh well, geez I disapear for like 3 days, and look what happens! no more 120 rule, and a whole new forum! (in fact I did not know you were doing this, the site was down yeterday, and I had to find out from Fishnwolf and Jedix (kevin and matt) what was going on!) But Good Job!!! :)

    It twas not even my fault I was gone! lol, I got banned from the comp for like 3 days, mom did not like that I tied up up the phone line, so she got mad, and well... kinda took the monitor... so yeah, its not like I could have gotten on and seen it anyway... geez I have been on this forum for like a year, never changed (actualy longer, I just was not a memeber) and the 3 days I get in trouble, BANG! everything is diffrent, I think you were just waiting for this... like the parents who send there kids off to camp, then move and dont tell them where they went, or they change the locks... :p

    The first time I visited the forum after the upgrade (today), I was instantly taken to the "you must register to view the forum" page. After I logged in and logged out, however, I am now unable to duplicate the behavior, even after quitting my browser.

    This was with Safari 1.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.3.1.

    But if logging in and logging out solves the problem, how are unregistered users going to work around it? :)

    I'm not sure how I feel about the new forum design. I just accidentally marked all forums as read because the "mark this forum as read" option wasn't very obvious (hiding under "forum tools" I guess).

    We want them to register! :D

    But seriously, it sounds like this is an issue with some of the more obscure browsers. I will be sure to let the vBulletin folks know so it can be corrected for an upcoming version.

    Your suggestion to leave/delete/shut down works only within a certain time frame. If I wait too long to return I am prompted again to login. Here is what you asked for (I hope it's right) on the three computers I use- the problem happens on all of them:

    1) safari1.1.1 with mac OS X 10.3
    2) internet explorer with windows xp
    3) internet explorer4.5 with mac OS 9 (I think it is an OS9)

    I can certainly work around the prompt; it is easy to bypass or simply login. I just wanted to make you aware of it.
