Has Buffetbuster been busted? I noticed under "Message Options" you can forward, rate post, report abuse, or flag as inappropriate. Are these intended to be publicly viewable like this?

    I went to KingT's Northwest Indiana report and the pictures looked the same to me. If they are resizing does it have something to do with the browser you are using or some other kind of setting? I'm using a Mac and Firefox 3.0.4.

      I'm someone that's resistant to change for the sake of it, but even though it will take me a little while to get used to, I think I like it already. The picture sizing bugs etc, and any other initial wrinkles, will get ironed out, I'm sure, and I do like some of the improved functionality. I will miss the cheerful and homely basic look the current site forums have but if it will improve the user experience to a great degree then I am all for it

          Actually - I use IE6, the picture thing is working fine for me - I like the fact the pics are slightly smaller. The quality is still good and I don't have to fiddle about scrolling around trying to see the whole image.

            The improvement in security alone is going to be worth it. The improvements in PM, searching and filtering are icing on the cake.

              Small technical issue that can hopefully be looked at - if not, I am sure that I will deal with it.

              Unless I am doing something wrong, there doesn't seem to be a way to bring up an "active topics" list, like the one that we have now. That is the page that I use the most. I usually set it to list all threads since "yesterday," giving me 24 hours of active Roadfood topics. I saw the drop-down choice to post "today's new posts" or something like that - but, it lists each post individually, as opposed to just listing the threads in which new posts were made. This seems a bit cumbersome. Is there a way to view the new threads that have posts - and maybe take you to the oldest unread post in any thread? I have seen that option in some other forums and think it would be helpful here. For that matter, it may already be there and I just need a tutorial on the new joint!

                Unlike the current forums it appears that editing a post has no effect on its position within a thread nor does it reposition the thread within the forum. If that's the case (certainly I could be doing something wrong) it might wind up being better to reply to one's owns posts instead of editing.

                Not a complaint, merely an observation...

                  Will the new asp format solve the flickr problem? Flickr basically discourages the method that's recommended in the picture-posting thread here; they want you to post the link that circles back to flickr every time. And I noticed in the last batch of pictures I posted that the 20th or so picture wouldn't resolve and I eventually had to just delete it from my reply.

                      the only thing that bothers me, is that going from page to page in a thread, isn't as easy. I like the drop down option. Same is true when searching for a member.

                        I like the present site but remember seeing this somewhere years ago, “the only thing constant is change itself”, how true. Thanks Stephan.

                          Oh boy, I see trouble brewing with the "inappropriate flag" . Monitors, quit your day jobs now as you will have no time for them with all the flags flying in every forum which has two opinions or more. As Marc Antony said to his wife on the Ides of March "Sorry I'm late, things got rather out of hand at the forum today dear."

                          I think with the flag feature, every day will be the Ides of March on these forums. Good luck with that one.

                            I just don't like it. Sorry. When it's up, I'm, sure I'll get used to it, eventually, and love it like it was my own.

                                I always thought the photos for the roadfood insiders members were a little large when posted. Will there be a better way to control the size if you still keep that feature? Just a suggestion.

                                Thanks

                                      Maybe we can use it to eliminate people with no sense of humor?

                                          I guess I left that one out there to be hit. Would it have killed you to put a smiley face in there...even if you didn't mean it?

                                                    I thought he was the 'Ever Changing Moods' guy.

                                                      I like the new forum very much. The drop-down menus work great too.

                                                        As a newbie I don't if this counts, but I do kinda like the new format. Change is inevitable, not always comfortable, but it happens. There are some new things I like, the rest I will get used to. I read more than post. I found the info here very valuable. I am sure it will be fine tuned when it is changed over.

I usually set it to list all threads since "yesterday," giving me 24 hours of active Roadfood topics.


                                                          That's the way that I mostly view the forums, too. I guess that I'll have to type in a "since" time and date repeatedly.

                                                            The new site is not current with the latest post. I like the old forum home page which shows the most resent post without having to wade though all the forum listings. So does the new software offer a RSS feed? The RSS usually show the last 10 or so post.
