    Good morning bolttalkers. You've probably noticed the site has undergone a major revision this weekend. Please refer to the following announcements from our newest admin, robdog.

    Please make this thread a home for your thoughts and feedback regarding the new forum layout. Also feel free to post here if you have any problems or questions.

    I am going to be fixing the smilies right now. That was on the list. I am not 100% sure why some signatures are working and other are not working. I will look into this as well.

    Anything in particular that you miss that we might be able to find some sort of "middle ground"?

    I don't see too much wrong with it as long as it functions the same... It'll just take a while to get used to :(
    Oh and I agree with fixing the "signatures" my picture doesnt show

    I suggest giving it a few weeks before you start taking opinions on the new layout.

    It's been my experience that anytime a forum drastically changes its layout in an upgrade like this the vast majority of posters will absolutely hate it at first because they're too used to the previous format, but after some time goes by and people start to adjust you start getting more honest opinions.

    edit: That's not to say opinions on specifics can't be valuable right now. I'm just talking about general "do you like it or hate it?" opinions.

    I have fixed one problem with signature pics by allowing IMG bbcode. Still working on the random "sigpic" showing up.

    For some reason, the LOL smilie is corrupted or not usable. Looks to of been a program since the initial move of bolttalk.net.

    Can you link me a smilie that is close to the LOL smilie? I will update that ASAP.

    I pretty much just google'd for a background and found one. Not sure if I have the original or not, but I will look for it.

    Glad you like it. :)

    I can't click on "new posts", "FAQ", or whatever else is hidden under the suddenly larger BoltTalk emblem here.

    My friends are gone. Will they be returned or shall we organize a new gathering ?

    My signature is away, too . I would like to support Scott Mruczkowski again, Yogi Tolbert and Vaughn Martin.
    So how can I change the sigsig in my profil ?

    I don't like fixed.

    Everything's too crammed with space on the sides not being used.

    Slowly get familiar with the tools. Signature pic is really large. It leads to our season opener at arrowhead !

    I like your new logo. It's cool. Unfortunately, I have not posted much for some time, so I can't comment on features and functionality.

    It looks like the SIGPIC problem is something I am not going to be able to solve. If you are seeing this problem, please modify your signature and upload/select a new picture for your signature:
    http://bolttalk.com/profile.php?do=editsignature

    If you would like me to restore your old picture, please post here or send me a PM.

    Thanks.
