In case anybody is curious, I got our new registration spams down to zero since I made one change. We'll see how long it lasts. I added a question to registration that says we manually approve all regs, and we will not allow any spammers... and notice the board has ZERO spam? You then have to pick a choice from a pull down menu that either says, "I'm a spammer and I'm wasting your time" or "I'm a real fan and I can prove it." Zero regs that say I'm a spammer since the new board is in place.

Is anyone having trouble viewing the new format on Android-based mobile phones? My Samsung just can't open more than the first couple of lines of the first post in any given thread. Very frustrating!

I've used it from my Galaxy S3 running ICS and then JB. What phone do you have and what version is it running? And what browser are you in? I'm in Chrome for Android.

I'm using a Samsung GT-I5500. I can't actual find out what version of Android it's running. Guaranteed to be whichever version turned out to be the crappest and was replaced quickly.

Crap! Can't fix it. Forum software allows some HTML but blocks HTML forms, and the PayPal donate button is actually a FORM. That's kinda dumb and outdated if you ask me, but there ya go. No donate button for now. I changed the text on the About page to let people know they can send any amount they like via PayPal to webmaster@frenz.com .

I'm working on some CSS for making quotes more obvious. I can't make them alternate in colour, but I think I'm winning for making them obvious. Hopefully people won't too often quote someone who quoted someone who quoted someone!

Hi, How easy was it to update my profile pic !! Great . Funny to see the forum on a word type background. It makes it easier to read but harder to see separations between the topics.

Wow, it's really different. *laughs* I'll have to poke around awhile, but my first impression is that it's incredibly *busy*...i.e., full of lots of stuff that might actually obscure the meat of the forum? Dunno, give me time. I like the idea of a recent activity link, but would find it much more useful if there was a way to only get new posts in that link, not who just joined, and *especially* not who "likes" something. Good luck with it Deb...I'll definitely have to get used to it!

Hey, brownie. Yes it's different. I think they fashioned it after Ning and other systems like it... for better or worse. I think http://www.frenzforum.com/forumsRedirect is the closest to the old home page. People are welcome to bookmark that. Yeah not sure on the likes. Let me see what I can change on the activity page.

Do you mean something like "Recent Topics" on the right side of this page? http://www.frenzforum.com/foru...y/289240632436257792

OK I killed the home page and made the forums the home page like the old days. I put some right side column stuff, and tried to simplify it. There's also this page, which seems to be all recent topics and comments. http://www.frenzforum.com/displayForum I'm working on killing really outdated "sticky" topics, which are at the top of the page.

Yes, I did not notice the Recent Topics on the side of this page.[edit: which now seems to be gone? *laughs*]..I think that is even better if it brings you into a topic where you last left off....I can't tell yet if it does that....for whatever reason I went straight to "Activity" up at the top.

Re: Brand New Forum System!

No, I can't turn off the auto check box for notification. Sorry. I made the home page the Forum list like it used to be. I added a link to the right side for the recent activity. I called it something like Most Recent, Newest First. That'll always show newer stuff first. I also think it'll show a funny icon and NEW when something is new to you. I'll try to add Recent Topics back, but I think it was for every forum everywhere.

Re: Brand New Forum System!

Frenz Webmistress Deb ·
Scratch that. I took out my panel with my Newest First link. I put back the Recent Activity panel. It has a link at the bottom that says See All. THAT goes to the list of all recent activity, newest first. I think THAT page (all activity, newest first) used to be my bookmark for this forum. I liked starting there.

Crikey, this is going to take some getting used to! Particularly for someone like me who just *hates* change. Others embrace change and love prodding and poking about with new things, natural curiosity driving them to investigate all the things you can now do . . . but I completely understand the need for the change here, and applaud Deb for all her efforts in making it happen. I'll probably go quiet for some time, though, while I get used to it all. (Unless Peter suddenly comes up with news...

Whoa I just woke up, people! 7:30am in California. Let me handle what everybody is saying. Yes, it changed, but the main change is really the side column.

OK! There is now a DONATE button on the About page. Didn't want it on every page constantly staring at you. As for the "Premium Membership," it currently has no perks. Sorry. Couldn't think of any with the old board, can't think of any here! It's just an auto-pay of $20 every 6 months to support the board. You will get a special icon next to your name once I've made the icon. So everybody will know you support the board! But that's about it! You can find that by going into your own profile...

Hello Frenz world Deb, when I saw the holding page last night, I found hoop.la's site and looked at a couple of their examples. Compared to those, I think you've done a really good job of adapting the software to meet the needs of this forum. Thank you! Although I haven't tried everything out yet, the only niggle I have so far is with the typefaces. Sorry if you chose them because you like them - just my personal opinion. Is it mandatory to allow the FaceBook and Google logins? How do you...

This will take some getting used to for sure, but I think any setup is going to have it's pros and cons. I like to take the time to get used to a change before forming an opinion. I'm expecting to discover advantages I liked the members page. I've peeked there periodically to see who the current top 20 posters are. I'd miss not being able to do so. Also, sometimes I can't remember a member's name (but remember what letter it starts with, etc) so I scan through a couple pages to find them.

Hi! Alucidor, what is the font problem? I customised some fonts and left others. Which font didn't you like and why? Too small? Too big? Hard to know which one and what the problem is, so please give details! Half-Full, I put most active members on the right side of the search page [ http://www.frenzforum.com/advancedSearch ]. You can search members there. The members page was otherwise an alphabetical list of 8000 people. If you really wanted that, I'll put it back!

I really think it's VERY similar in so many ways! If you took away the right bar and changed some fonts, it's nearly the old system. One thing this does is make itself into an iPhone app. Takes weeks, but it means there will eventually be a free iPhone app just for the forum. I haven't started that process yet, but I will at some point!
