New Platform for this Forum?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone -

 

I just checked in and noticed we're on a different platform, if that's the word, for the Forum; something called IPS Community instead of InvisionZone.

 

How did that come about? Any issues with the change over? How is everyone liking it?

 

I'm wading into right now, so I don't have a definite opinion yet, except that it is a bit different...

It was like knocking on a lifelong friends door and someone youve never seen in your life answers! Ha! It looks cool.

I'm sorry for the sudden changes guys. It was a surprised for all of us that was the result of an upgrade, and I'm not sure we could have given much warning anyway, and we're looking into changing the skin back to what we had before. There are some other factors involved though.

 

I kind of like seeing our avatars though. :)

Sorry for the change-up folks. We're still on Invisionzone but they are upgrading across the board and it was swim or sink.

The old version will soon be obsolete to us as they will not being updating that platform from here on in.

 

We thought the best thing to do was move forward and I had intended on giving you all a heads-up, but I've been on and off line a bit this week and our internet specialist went ahead and made the change thinking it would be a few days before Invisionzone would make the changes . . .

 

Any change in something you are comfortable and familiar with is a bit jarring and for that we apologize mucho mas -

However, we think this new format will be a very good thing, like someone else said, it'll just take a little getting used to it.

I think this new upgrade is also purging a lot of our spambership profiles off the premises, which is a good thing.

 

We sincerely appreciate your patience while we all get used to the new home.

 

Cheers all - Tim

It looks pretty, but are the topics listed sort of randomly instead of by date? Maybe I'm missing something.

Kwiat - I was just checking things out and it still looks like the topics are listed in order of the most recent post, as I think the old version was.

Stick with it, baby, pretty soon it will be like old hat ;)

Im liking it, change is good but Tim is right, the more we explore and use the more quicker it will become the norm. Godd job guys I like it.

I'm liking it too. I wouldn't mind the look befitting the material here a little more, to be honest. It would be cool if we could get some graphic backgrounds, and an overall color scheme that felt like Tim designed it, yeah?

 

It's all new behind the scenes too. So, we all have twice as much to get used to!

I was having a bit of a hard time with it at first, but it seems like a bunch of the bugs are working themselves out. It's starting to grow on me, and as Noeland mentioned, I like the avatars showing after the posts.

Hey there - liking the look okay, but one glitch for me is that I used to click on "view new posts" and could re-click it during the same visit and catch-up! Now, once I've clicked "new content" and read one post, and try to click again, there's no new content. Maybe I need to remember to hit "back" or something? Anywhoo - cheers to upgrades! :)

LOL, I'm still not used to Facebook... but I am getting used to the changes here. Everything looks nicer and smoother and as far as how I use it, this format is fine.

 

I did notice that I had to sign in to see the Forum though, when it had been "open" in the past. Not sure if that's the way it is now, or just this time when I signed on.

I'm happy that I don't have to sift through 200+ spammer validations a day :D

 

We still get some, but nowhere near as crazy before. The new filters are great.

The only thing that I didn't like was the fact it would not let me upload my photo but Noeland did it for me. Otherwise I find it really cool. :rolleyes:
