The message board will be moved to a new board sometime today. It's possible that avatars won't be convert over, and will have to be re-loaded.

Other changes will be announced over the next day or so.

Looking forward to the changes! A couple of quick questions:

1 - When the message board gets moved to a new board, will there be any "down time" where the site will not be able to be accessed ( I read the board throughout the day, and if there's down time, I may actually have to do work :o )?

2 - Is the basic format of the board going to stay the same (colors, topics, etc.)?

Could be down for 2 hours during the change. We will attempt to give warning.

The topics will not change, the look will adjust some.

Are you changing from phpBB?

Excited to hear about the changes.

Tapatalk is compatible with the new board. There may be some downtime as we get it hooked back up with Tapatalk, but I would still expect to have Tapatalk support going forward.

Obviously the board has been moved over. Our thanks to Shane.

 

Should you have questions about the new board, add them here.

You can click on the chat/quote icon to the left of the forum name. That should do it.

Is there any way to mark the entire BSL forum read instead of just each subforum? Also, is there a way to click on a thread and it send you to the last one you read? I remember the other forum had that little orangeish box.

(Sorry for being anal with these questions, just trying to get my bearings.)

I believe I answered my own question, if anyone else was wondering.

 

On the main forum page, if you click "View New Content" there should be a dot (or star, depending if you've posted in the thread) next to every thread. Click that and it will send you to the first new post (that you haven't read).

At the bottom of the page, there is a link called "Mark Community Read". That will mark all forums as read.

The dots will be next to each topic even if you don't click "View New Content". The dot will still take you to the last unread post.

Where do I go to find threads with new posts that I'm subscribed to?

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

Click View New Content, then look down at the Other section.    There are links for:

 

 

Just items I follow
Items I participated in
Items I started
 
You can also right-click and Copy Link Address/Copy URL if you want to save it for a bookmark.

¡Hasta la vista, pelota!

From looking at the board through the browser in my phone, I like it so far!

When will I be able to view the board through Tapatalk?
