Welcome to the all new Madboards. As you can see we have now moved to a PHPBB based system, this means that we will be able to give you all a better overall experience with more functions than the old board.

We are still tweaking some parts of the board but for the most part it's ready for use, it's a matter of tweaking how things look and this should be done by the end of today (Wednesday)

enjoy

Slykura
Madboards Admin.

Good job.

Coloured posts... argh...

Please please please don't post in colour all the time. It's really really annoying.

I forgot what sort of lameness could be used.

Which reminds me...

We can do this now, too. :/

Very Happy haha~~ sorry, StorminNorman, but I always thought if all words are in black, it is very difficult to tell which belongs to which post... (especially in the old forum). Laughing

Don't you just love all those tricks we can play now in this new forum~~?? Wink

The new board is good.

When do you expect to have the "better experience" changes done?

I'd just like to give a big thanks to all at Madman for the upgrade. It's always good when a company sees something like a web forum as an important part of how they relate to their customers, and repaying us by giving us an even better way to rant and rave about the quality of their releases is the best thing they could do.

A good decision has been made, and everyone should be proud of the job, including Sly, who was pretty much responsible for giving us the new forum.

Tim A: Expect another big hug at Manifest this year. Very Happy

Well. Isn't this just spunky and all new like. Me like. Me like very much.

Avatars yay! Bets on if I actually get around to putting mine up before the end of the day. And bets on Stormo picking on at least 3 more things which can be annoying about new users using these boards before the end of the day. :p

I'm am unhappy that this board does not support my old username (Trunk's Girl) because of the apostrophe. Is there anyway you can transfer all my old data to this new account? Or change my old account's displayed name to be "Illusion"?

Policing this avatar size thing is going to annoy a lot of people I think -_-

I have to admit that it feels a little silly to make an issue of avatars larger than 64x64 when they're still under 4k and don't even extend as far horizontally as a person's username.

But if we go about 64x64, then it makes posts too long... which as I've seen on other boards with 150x150 limits becomes a problem when a two word post takes up a quarter of your browser.

I don't see it Tallis, mind you I can't see mine either, could it be that geocities is a reason why that is so?

Maybe not as I see mine when I'm using the other browser.

There was a hack on the test board that checked for avatar sizes (both dimension and file size). So when the board is up and running at its fullest we won't have to police it Wink

They need a hack for avatar sizes? Thats kinda a security risk if that feature is not default. People could upload huge images.
