Welcome to the new forum!

As you've noticed, we've launched the new forums. We are still doing a bit of construction, and there are some features that are still being adjusted. The theme, for one, is being worked on, and I'm trying to get our smileys into the list. YouTube integration, etc. is coming shortly.

Please don't be shy about your feedback - please let us know about your experiences, bad or good, and let's learn about our new home together. Welcome to the rebuilt GT forums.

Known Issues:
- Old posts do not propagate comments into the forums and visa versa. We are resolving that (hopefully this evening), but any NEW posts function properly.

    Just a head's up- be sure to check your spam filters for password reset emails. This has happened a few times

    Also, do understand that we are NOT going to achieve parity of functionality with the old forum. There will be trade-offs, and some functionality will just have to wait until we get our final forum theme online. The new functionality we get with the new forum should more than offset that, however. Also, integrated comments/forum posts!

    Shiny! Always like shiny new things :)

    This will take some getting used to, but I think it works just fine so far.

    I had to reset my password, and then I found the email in the spam folder when I thought It hadn't arrived.

    Is there a way to change the width of the post area? With this new forum, seem like I'm wasting my screen width and only use a 1/4 of the total width. Kinda like facebook. Is there a way to adjust that?

    Today's (Tuesday) theme looks a lot better than it did yesterday. Thanks for all the hard work.

    So... the formatting codes are [i]completely[/I] different now? I don't recall ever seeing these particular codes before. Checked after seeing Farley's post. :/

    Sorry, meant completely.

    Also hoping you'll get some navigation aids back down at the bottom of the pages, right now we have to scroll all the way back up to the top for that.

    @Victoria Raverna I'll look into that

    @MonkeyFinger We have tried a number of things to enable BBcode, I have one more plugin I'm going to look at. That said, Markdown is pretty spiffy. I'll look into a 'back to top' link

    There is now a button that shows up at the bottom of the page. I will make it prettier soon :)

    Unfortunately not without extensive retooling of the theme. However, there is this:

    I realize that takes an additional action but it does give you a wider field to work with.

    What about jumping to new unseen posts? Am I blind, or it might be lack of coffee. But "This is Fun" thread would be dreadful to have to browse through ;)

    You need to visit a thread once under the new forum software and then the old "New" functionality kicks in. Not really intuitive but when there are new posts in a topic you click on the subject to go to the first unseen post.
