New board software

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that we'll be upgrading to new bbs software sometime in the next few days. Could be as soon as tonight. CurlTalk will be down for 2-3 hours, and then it will look a bit different.

It will take us all a while to get used to the new look, but I think you'll like it once we get accustomed to it.

We've worked really hard on this change and I hope you'll give us the benefit of the doubt, providing constructive feedback to we can fix the (inevitable) bugs, etc.

Thank you!

Isn't this what the old board looked like if I remember correctly? Not the OLD OLD board, but the second version...

I like the new board but it took me 7 attempts to get in.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
I'm an oldie and have been thru several changes. This looks very weird but I'm sure I'll adjust as I always have.

However, I was trying to change my avatar today, didn't make it before the Big Change here. Now, when I go to edit avatar, the only option is to not have an avatar-- I can't download a new picture. ?!?!?! Help! The pumpkin needs to go for winter!

Ack! I just went to send a PM and see that there are NO SAVED messages! OMG! I had some info on there I needed.

Is there a way to find these messages? Are they being transferred over?

If they are gone, I'll be a bit upset that we didn't get some kind of notification to copy and save the info off somewhere else before they were deleted.

I'm very sorry for your troubles, btw. We'll get the kinks worked out soon, I promise. Well, not THOSE kinks, of course!

Does this new software only let you use one emoticon when you post or do post a reply? It'll show up the first one I put in, but not another one after that? Not an earth shattering issue, I know, but some of us love our emoticons.

The censor needs work:

***ulation was in a thread I just read

I assume that was supposed to be c u m u l a t i o n

Testing:

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
CurliLocks,

I've cleaned them up now.

I see that we can save them off as text, etc now. Although I don't like the look of it in notepad, the info is there.

Thank you!

In cleaning up my PMs, I notice that we can't view whether they have been read or not. That was kind of useful.

Or am I just missing that in the new format?

A bit annoying at the time but I'm in now and thankfully i don't have to log in everyday like some members are having to do.

Don't worry about it, I was probably logging in just as the software was finishing being loaded or something. Sorted now though!
