I just wanted to say that I am loving the look of the new forums! Much better than the old ones, thank you.

I don't care about sigs or avatars.  To be complete honest most of the posters' sigs and avatars here are god damn dumb and I'm going to turn them off if I can.  So much wasted screen real estate!  My only problem with the forums is that they seem a fair bit slower than the other forums I visit.  Any idea what the reason for that could be? Perhaps the huge military babes thread is killing it?

Webmaster says you have two accounts, which is probably causing the issue, he disabled one so it should use the proper one when you log in. If you have trouble, email me Gus.

Can you do the same thing for me? So I can have my old account back.Pretty sure I have the same problem.

Pretty sure Sigma was talking about technical issues with the forums when he created this thread.  But you certainly raise a valid possibility! lol

Serious question here.

 

I understand that the Wargamer is sponsored/owned/has-something-to-do-with Matrix Games.  Why doesn't the Wargamer just use the same forum software as Matrix?

 

(because if it were that easy, we would have already done it!) is what I'm guessing, but, still...

Are the"new posts" buttons not working? For some reason whenever I click it it takes me to the last post of the thread rather than the first new post like it used to.  And it always says that there are two more new posts than there actually are posts in total (so for example a thread with 13 posts will say "15 new posts").  What is up with that?

Ever since a few days ago when the forum went offline for a a couple of days, I've been experiencing forum trouble.

 

Indentation,  layout, images, text, everything is pretty much messed up.

 

Was there some software change that dislikes Firefox???

Firefox is definitely the worst...I use IE and Chrome to use all the functionality here with the new update.

I'd rather face the bugs than face IE.

For some reason Firefox doesn't gel well, although for me, Chrome has no problems.

I use Firefox and haven't had any issues at all since the upgrade a few days ago.

I too am having issues using the forums with Firefox (version 4.somethingorother).  Hard to believe this ancient version of IE on my work computer is actually having an *easier* time with it!

I'm having problems with this as well (both IE and FF).

Good grief, man...speaking of ancient browser versions. My Firefox is version 9.0.1! Could be the source of some of your issues.

Firefox version 9.0.1 is the newest version of Firefox available. Currently I am using Firefox 3.6.25 (I must have missed v4.x.x somehow!) which works just fine for every other internet forum I visit except for this one.

 

I am reluctant to update Firefox until it's been out for awhile and has had time to get all the bugs fixed.

Maybe, maybe not.  I've been hearing bad things about the later versions of FF, and so have held off on "upgrading".

Well, since the latest "upgrade",  the forum looks nicer... I'll git it that.  But now my signature area doesn't display correctly... it shows the HTML code plus does not include the formatting (bold, italics)  Also, last night form topics I read then went back to the discussion area wouldn't show as read.  The number of new replies to a given topic still showed, even though I'd just been in there.  Weird.

Update:  Firefox is now working much better.  Not sure what you guys did, but it helped!

However, this bit is still not working.

Blakjack, I had this issue as well.  I was able to fix it, though, by simply going in and re-editing my sig (undoing and then redoing the italics function).  Obviously, I can't say whether or not this solution will work for you as well, but it might be worth a try!

What the hell?  I still have to log back in every time I visit the site! 

 

Honestly, this is ridiculous.  The forum upgrade fails to fix the single biggest issue most of us were having??

I'd say check your cookies, I only have this issue if my PC has been completely rebooted.

Now the threads are not marked read after I view them. I have to mark the forum as read manually and hope there have been no new posts.

My avatar dematerialized a few weeks ago and nothing I've tried to do seems to be able to bring it back.  It's a smal jpeg of a detail of David's Presentation of the Eagles which I use as my logo in my Napoleonic mods and as my avatar on several different websites where, for one reason or another, I have to use variations on my name.  I even opened a help ticket a couple of weeks ago, but as yet no response.

 

I can see the jpeg in the upload section, but whenever I try to update my profile (to get it back to the way it was for the last couple of years) the image path reverts to a default image.

 

Is there anything that can be done about this?

I'll look into it Philippe, have you tried using a different browser to upload it to your profile, and has the size of the image been changed in any way?
