    How can it be laggy for you when it has no sig pictures, no thumbs, no pics? :) And at least for now, there are less commercials as well. Works like a rocket for me, lol.

    I agree that the theme is not ideal. Tried my best to replicate UO Classic, but I am willing to let anyone give it a shot. Sadly, I was born without an artistic bone in my body.

    Currently working to get some new themes, including two Stratics-specific themes: one light variety, one dark variety.

    with few more customization it could be good forum...
    Personally I hate the fact that I have to see all the statics forums, I'd like to be able to see only the UO forums...

    Syrus I think you guys did a fantastic job! Thank you and everyone else for all their hard work over the weekend! I think the board has a nice clean look to it. Not as "busy" as the last forum. As far as loading goes, I've found it considerably faster than the old board. I frequent a lot of boards and this one loads just as quick as any other. :)

    Thank you, Syrus. Now I can actually see the entire thread while replying! Why...I could even address both of the bitter posters in one swell foop. But why feed the mad...ness?o_O

    I like the new boards and having easy access to the process via Stratics' Facebook site (without having to log in to Facebook) was fantastic. Kudos, Syrus! :)

  16. It's the Attitude Filter that comes with the new Xenforo forums... if your attitude is ugly, bulky and laggy, then Xenforo filters it to be ugly, bulky and laggy. For me the new forum is bright, trim and zippy!

    just saying...

    Absolutely correct! I was VERY surprised that I wasn't going to have to create a facebook or twitter account. That was indeed a very good CS move. EA could learn a thing or two from you folks.

    It'll take a lot of getting used to, for everyone, but the Xenforo software is just better than what we had before, in pretty much every conceivable way.
    Maybe not at things like "Starting with a 'V'", but 'X' is a nice letter, too.

    Glad to see you reopen. I'm suffering no lag at all. I'm sure the visual will get better as you tweak it going along. Nice job with the transition!

    I know nobody will be surprised by this...

    But I don't like it either.

    Well, maybe a little.


    At least I kept my user number.


    I do like the pop-up editor.

    Might be worth using the default XF theme, until ya finish the newer ones.
    But this isn't bad for a first attempt! :p

    No, the default theme is hideous in comparison to this. Like eye-sodomy.

    Having used vBulletin and Xenforo for years, I have to disagree. As both a user and an admin. Admittedly, since vBulletin has gone under new management a couple of things have gone down. But, I still prefer vBulletin.

    Would have to agree with darker form. The backround is bright and makes reading rough. After few minutes it is hard to look back at the screen from typing. Get the feeling of staring into the sun.

    It's going to take some getting use too with this new forum, it looks.... interesting.
    Other then the Adaptation I'm experiencing no issues to the new site.

    Good job with the transition.

    Something I'm thankful for - No Comic Sans.

    Time to choose a font for adults!

    My sig was uploaded by photobucket which you said should come through...I'll futz with it and see what's up, but other then that it's awesome. Sure it's not *Stratics* I know alot of people aren't going to like it cus it's not what they've seen for the past....15 years? :) Kinda like the day I finally got my parents to get off of Dial up! New is odd and scary and ugly sometimes but you eventually get used to it. I personally like it, oh yeah im wavin my pom poms! ;)

    Good job guys :)

    I'll try to find a solution to the anchor thing. I agree that I'd much rather be able to look at categories as forums.

    Also there needs to be options for how many posts to show per page.
