Me personally I love everything about it.... my favorite is probably the sleek new look. I liked the Giants colors on the old forum but it was a little much on the eyes. Wow did i just sound old.....! haha

Oh didn't even notice that. Where do you see that?


Also where is the tool bar that allows you to use colors and enlarge/bold/underline text?

Agree with this. This will be great for highlights and draft prospect threads.

Go to Forum Actions>General Settings> Scroll down to Miscellaneous Options and select Enhanced interface.

This will give you all the options for embedding video, fonts, colors etc...

Glad you guys like the change!

Speaking for myself, I can't even begin to tell you how much better and easier the moderating functions are on this one too. It's like night and day LOL

(I know, I know...but trust me, we're all just as happy and excited about the new boards as you all are, but maybe for a few slightly different reasons):D

That was one of my major pet peeves from the last board. There was no option for limiting how many quotes were posted, which is why we had so many threads that were unreadable because people insisted on quoting every single post. I think we have the limit set to 2 quotes deep, or maybe it's 3. I insisted on that one LOL

I'm going to check in on that one. If it's permitted, I'll remedy the situation personally.

!. Letting new members register again.
2. My scroll wheel really enjoys the fact that the entire message board no longer gets quoted in every post. Thought my finger was going to fall off before. Imagine how much more readable the gameday thread will be.

Everything. It's just far easier to use and much more pleasing to look at.
