    never are sure who you're speaking to. ever. I understand what they done understand why did it how did it I don't have to be happy about it but I'm still an American. that gives us the right to speak up if they didn't want that job to look so sloppy it would not of .which means they have enough power to just do it and post like these really don't mean squat to them at this point in time same with the JFK hit. Pearl Harbor. the Lusitania. the main.the incident that got Vietnam moving. Gulf of tonken....go on and on different countries different continents but all in all we don't have it too bad here in the USA and I would imagine it will balance out they usually do but this one sure has run amok.... have a lot of people have paid for it both money wise and what their lives Its always been that way. we just have short periods of calm in which fighting is still going on. c'est la vie. Cheers

    another board I am familiar with "rivals.com" did an upgrade to to this format a couple of months ago. likes/thanks were transferred over to the new board by request only. It wasn't an automatic transfer so the administrator had to transfer thanks/like to the new board manually when requested.

    I believe they didn't make the leap.

    The pm system is gone and replaced with a more robust conversation system

    Guys, there is a way to disable the 2 step and it is in your profile.
    You go in there and turn it off. Let me know if that works.
    I have it disabled for now so it isn't such a drag.

    And too, there is a checkbox, 'remember this device for 30 days', and that may help you if you want to keep the 2 step enabled. The 2 step is a great security feature that even if someone you knew had your log and pass, they still couldn't access unless it was the exact same device.

    fyi is all

    we need a running list of what guys are able to find and sort out:

    there are some in this thread, and more in other threads,
    need someone that can put them all together in one place so they can be sourced and dealt with

    I have already asked the converter about the likes/groups/missing members

    guys, we also lost some other stuff,

    Our new posts tab,
    Our tickers page tab
    Our GIM Radio tab

    etc.
    I can get to it, but one thing at a time,
    One crucial one that wasn't explained to me was the thanks totals,

    How do you "turn it off"?

    If it's possible I'd like to know how to do it. Did spend a few minutes looking for a way to disable it but can't seem to find one.

    Well... Here I yam.

    But... since I got here by an incredibly circuitous route (probably could not duplicate it)...

    I will hurry and say: If I try to light up the site, I get ERROR, BIATCH.

    So at least you know I am trying.

    I am trying to figger out if it is me not knowing the new protocols, or if they are not working.

    For instance: videos... aren't. They are just code/addresses.

    My avatar has been magnified... I will see if I can get to it.

    ^^ Yes, someone chopped off the top of my head. Did I fall down the rabbit hole? Where's Alice?


    Never mind. I fixed it. You have some control over the avatar in your control panel.

    Also, I noticed that we can't go directly to the last post posted on thread to read. We have read through the entire thread or click on the last "box" of replies.

    The trophies thing is a little wierd.

    And... I DID figure out how to change my avatar to fit (ONE inch wide). But it does not seem to have "taken"...

    Guys, I have already explained about the bad bookmarks, the how to change color, the all of the above,

    If I have to keep back tracking to explain again, I don't get time to actually fix what needs it,

    Please help a guy out, as now apparently there are 3 threads going on this and info everywhere

    Not to mention guys chirping in with bad intel that don't know what they are talking about

    We have important fish to fry like lost thanks, lost members, and lost vids that need to be resolved asap

    Don't get me wrong, I need the input, but let's try to stay current

    Thanks for the help

    - Thanked/thanks didn't transfer over (history of those given and those received)
    - 1,000 word limit for posts
    - Groups/missing people issue
    - Inability to move created threads like previous GIM2
    - "Recent posts" tab like we had at the old forum


    I think that is the running list that I have come across so far.

    Wasn't talking about the button itself, was talking about past history of thanks giving and thanks received count. I'll edit the post to clarify that.

    I haven't worked on the trophy thing yet, no time yet.

    There are no groups with the base forum.
    There is no recent post tab with the base forum.

    Those 2 are 'add ons' that I will go look for later.

    Please bear with me as in time we will get this just how we like it

    Agreed re character count per post, etc. There are some things I have set to unlimited and it isn't working like that yet.
    So have to source those issues separately.

    Thanks guys,

    Maybe worth throwing "multi-quote" feature up on the list of missing features? Anyone else miss that feature, or just me?

    Finally made it back in. Tried many times and kept getting the error page. Long as I didn't try to log in I could read posts, except for the members only forum. Seem to have lost any thanks I had from before, doesn't matter much as I usually only lurk here any more, then only from time to time. Test a photo just for giggles.
