Improvements

Just a few things I think could still change. You can not set a avatar and it goes right to an error message. Also, (where the general discussion/aquarium/nutrition links are) I would recomend adding a "Fish Species" or "Fish ______". That way there is a place to discus fish species. Maybe also an "Equipment" section. I dont know if anybody will read this.....but it was worth a shot.

Re: Improvements

Lots of bugs in the system I suspect.  I advise patience until this stuff gets ironed out.

Re: Improvements

As I mentioned in the reptile forum, navigation is a bit difficult, with no obvious links to the various forums from the threads (handy when going topic to topic or forum to forum).

 

I managed to get my avatar up pretty easily. It helps to go through your settings thoroughly. I had to adjust my time zone, and the chronological order of posts (oldest to newest like it was, rather than newest to oldest). There's still a few things I haven't messed with, so that may improve it a bit, too. There's a good bit of customization you can do in there.

 

One other thing I am not a fan of is the session timeout. I tend to leave the forum up and logged in on my computer constantly, so I can easily check it from time to time.

 

After a week or two of getting used to it, it'll be easier to provide some feedback on what features are lacking/hindering, once we're all a bit more used to the layout.

Hi, this is confusing,  plus I wanted huach to know I was trying out new buttons and I ended up giving him several kudos, 1 would have been enough (for now)!  Hopefully this system will get easier to use.

Re: Improvements

When you look at the 17646 threads on the Splash Forum compared to the others, you can really tell what the most used forum is.:cathappy:

This is so confusing to use... I thought a LITTLE change,...

This is so confusing to use... I thought a LITTLE change, not a big change!!  I logged onto the forum and I was kind of shocked. I lost all the pictures on my photos and friends. it's a litte hard to use, I have to admit, such a big change. It's going to take me a week or two to adjust. I liked the old way much, much better.

Re: This is so confusing to use... I thought a LITTLE change,...

Well I wanted to try posting now, since I couldn't log on yesterday at all. I am having a little trouble finding out which threads I've read and which ones have new content.

There's an option on the main thread "Mark All As Read"...click that, and topics that generate new posts will appear in bold afterwards.
