At the top of the page click on "settings." That should bring up a screen with options listed down the left side. Those options include avatar and sig editing. This is new for all of us so expect some minor delays as we see what's working or not working as the case may be. This is a clear upgrade to the old boards so just relax and let's see how we can make it a better experience.

There is going to be a ton of fine tuning done in the next couple of days. With everyone able to see the new boards and check stuff out, we're counting on feedback from you guys, in case there is a setting/feature that may not be enabled that was overlooked. Again, it'll take a little time to get everything how we want it. Don't be afraid to chime in!

Yeah, ive been reading these complaints a lot from giants fans or fans from other teams wanting to sign up on the giants message board for the last 1-2 years. Assumably, there might've been a bug where the site didnt email you your username/password confirmation. Guess the head person who runs the site never bothered to fix it but I think it limited a lot of people who otherwise could have signed up and contributed to the forums

I'm expecting a major, major leap in the amount of users/members around here now that the new boards eliminated that issue

I wonder what are the new rules in this forum. Can we finally use grown up language or we are still going with the censorship route?

What do you mean? The background is blue, the title bars are blue, a lot of text is blue, buttons, highlights... plenty of blue. It's the same as the last one except with a darker hue. (rhyme not intentional :p)
It matches the giants.com design.

It's in keeping with the giants.com design.

Not complaining but I feel like I need to put on my sun glasses around here...It hardly looks the same as the previous. It's going to take me a while to get used to. I do like the software much better though.

I meant the layout is very much the same, the colours are just darker. There's more of a contrast with the background this time though.

Hello for now.

But if we suck next year because of this godamn new forum , I'll say Bye.

Just playing.I said the same thing just before we switched over. I am like if it's not broke don't fix it. Lol. The old boards won us two SBs in five seasons... Let's see what the new ones can do

Dear God, I've been trying to retrieve my password for a year and a half. Until today, the board would claim it emailed me my password and never send out anything or let me create a new user name.
So glad this is fixed.

I was having same issue. U would click for them to reset. U go to email and it had a link. U click the link and it says the page doesn't exist. The n after 4-5 tries you get new password has been sent and nothing ever gets sent. I was persistent and kept trying and finally received it

This is most likely a stupid question. Remember how when you signed in or went out to main menu to choose what forum to go in you alway saw "MY POSTS" on the right side of page so you could check And see your top 10 or so last posts that have been replyed to. Then if he clicked on "my posts" your whole list of posts would come up.

My question is how do you access that feature on these new boards?

Also there was a section in FAQs about changing the look of the Boards by trying different Skins. The option is supposed to be on bottom left of the page if available. Well bottom of what page? Any page? Main page?

It says "what's new"

And second, there are probably no other skins available yet that's why they aren't there. On another vbulletin forum that I am on, there were other skins available and the options were scroll down on the bottom left of the page.

Hey went under "what's new" I see you can do searches and advanced searches for your most current and older posts or threads you started. However maybe I missed it but isn't there a pop up list like on old boards right there that's user friendly like the old boards had. It updated your list automatically so you new soon as you signed on who replyed to your threads or posts. It also had on that same page "active threads", "unread threads", and something like threads you have not seen. List of most active posters and other stuff.

Also has anyone noticed that when you " reply with quote" it comes up in your Post but isn't highlighted or separated by Poster like the old boards did. So when get those long ones where a whole bunch of people quote it just looks like one long post someone made.

Now I just wish there was a page like before on main menu that has your Posts right there. The old boards had the top 10 or so posts right there soon as you logged on so you knew who responded to threads you posted in. Don't see tht feature at all unless you use the search or advanced search options. Old boards had those options as well. Cool if your looking up a certain thread in a certain time frame. But I liked the feature of being able to see what threads you posted in we're post popular

When your browsing the forum all the posts you've responded or commented in will have a round green circle with a arrow in the middle.

If you go to "Talk About Giants Football"....scroll all the way down to the bottom left hand corner and they'll explain what all the icons mean.

It says there are styles and skins in the Help menu.
It say this:

Can I change the way the board looks?

You may be able to change the styling of the board by using the style changer in the bottom left of the page. This lets you choose different skins which change the color scheme and appearance of the board. If this option does not appear, the board cannot be restyled.

I looked and can't find it anywhere...

That's because there aren't other styles yet lol. I'm on another forum and the moderator would let us know when there is a new style available for us to use. Not sure if the moderator himself is able to make them or what.

I am not sure what I saw before. But now i see quotes in a blue background. HmmActually I figured out what I saw. The newer threads and posts made after the transition will have the "quoted" area in a box with a shaded light blue background. The older carried over threads and posts don't have the blue shaded area so it looks a lot like one giant run on thread/post that we all hate..lol

Guess we can live with the older threads being like That. No biggie

It's due to the software not recognising the old formatting tags. The previous board used [quote user=username] whereas this one uses [quote=username]

The old emoticon codes will not work, either.

What do you mean? The background is blue, the title bars are blue, a lot of text is blue, buttons, highlights... plenty of blue. It's the same as the last one except with a darker hue. (rhyme not intentional :p)
It matches the giants.com design.

I could see what he means. Its so dark it kinda looks black. Or the "old" Giants blue of the 80's.
