  • We've had enough time to settle in on the new boards............

    It is time to rate it on a 10 point scale where 10 is absolutely perfect.

    Then tell us why you rate it as such and tell us whether you like it more or less than the old boards.


    Let me start

    I rate it a 9.1 (nothing gets a 10 from me)

    I like the functionality, the ease of cutting and pasting, navigation etc.

    Messaging etc is so much easier. I also like the ease of posting links.

    I have seen some of the slowness mentioned by others when moving through internal links. Forward and back in the browser is fine.

    I would add better and more smileys and icons

    It is much better than the old boards.

    One last thank-you to the mods and whoever is responsible for fixing early issues with great spead.

    Here is where I would like to insert the beer mug.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    I don't like the font and the visual design...functionally, it's good...

      The board definitely gets a 10/10 for me. It's easy to navigate, nice emoticons, nice use of the text editor etc.

      The only thing I want right now is to be able to get this forum on a smartphone app so there is smooth accessing of the boards.

        I'm giving it a 7 based on the fact that I still have issues replying sometimes and there seems to be a large amnount of spam threads.
        I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

            Overall I'd say an 8/10. Easy to use, easy to post.

            I hate having to sign in every 10 minutes. I also find it very difficult to use on my smart phone. Clicking on one link sends me to diffent links. Sometimes , I need to click about an inch higher to get to where I want to go. Anyone else having this issue? Besides that, I am very happy with this MB

              I think the editing is much easier than the old board. Maybe we are doing it differently? I hit edit, my post pops up, I edit the post then hit save. That's it.

                There are a large number of spammers floating through here.

                  SPAM is just a curse we have to live with. Every poster can help by reporting spam when they see it. We aren't here 24/7 (although I come close lol). But I have elected to get an email when a poster reports spam or any infraction so, unless I'm sleeping, I try to login wherever I am, including via my Android. We do our best to keep up with it and, I think, we've gotten rid of all spam in pretty quick fashion.

                    That is an issue on cell phones. I can tap my screen and make the font larger which makes it hard to read everything because I have to scroll to see it all, but when I need to click on something it's much easier

                      What kind of problems are you having? It's really a pretty simple process to edit.

                          What is the best way to do this, sending a PM to you with the title of the thread?

                            There is a lower task bar under every post. There is a triangle on the left side of that lower bar. Cursor over that triangle and you will see Report Post. Just follow the instructions and we get a report. I get it whether I'm logged in or not.
