Hi

Still having problems navigating, none of the links work from the "board for me" page. Also I find the dark borders depressing, always loved the way the old site used the "whitespace" to make the site attractive.

Are there a search engine here where I can search through earlier posts? Can't just find it?? It's the holy grail of a forum me think.

Hope we firefox users are not forgotten when you fix this homepage, seems to work better now with firefox, than it did some few days ago, by the way.

Else I like this homepage as a fresh update. Keep up the great work!

Hi Lindbergh,

The Holy Grail is there. It needs to be !!

( It's the reason we transferred and imported nearly 140,000 posts in 21,000 threads from our old Forum data - how else are can you make use of that lot without a Search feature ??)

It's searching and finding, but not presenting links right now.

We're onto it and it will be a goer ASAP.

Currently you can find it hiding at the bottom of the Forums Index page
http://star-board.com/forum/index.php


Thanks and Cheers ~ Ian

Hello,

How can we access to previous board range ?
Through a link to the 2005 web site (it was at the bottom of the front page) ?

Thanks,

JM and Ian, thanks for the replies. I agree with you, conscious quote is better, only risk is messages getting long if poster do not delete extra text. Keep up the great work.

Hi matt535,

You're all over this updated website, and seemingly a bit negative about things to date. Personally, I have found a lot of difficulty so far in the changeover, particularly on 8/16 and yesterday, but I think it's important to be patient to let things iron out and normalize. Change is always so tough to adjust to.

One thing that I'm so happy about now is the lack of the nonsense that was part of the turf at the old site. Maybe you feel differently about this, but I don't think I'm alone in my feelings about the new site. Clearly registration encourages a more responsible adult attitude overall. Still, its my thought that the Starboard folks will be very tolerant of the opinions of contributors here. I think only real thoughtless troublemakers need to worry about getting reined in and blocked.

The good thing regarding registration is that online relationships seem to form when you are sure you are talking to the right person.

Take a look at the Boards UK forum and you will see that people open up more and the regulars know each other well. This, I hope, will now develop on an international level as people begin to trust this system.

The rest of the site is begining to grow on me and hopefully soon the bugs will be ironed out.

For me it is still running slowly and I'm still getting error messages. I am unable to find the search button but I tended to use google to search the site anyway. There's also no label appearing next to the logon check box.

Another annoyance is the borders appearing on mouse over certain images. A quick fix that I am sure will come with time.

Plus, I'm sure as per last year, more images of the boards will come with time.

Keep up the good work with the site.
