A couple minor quibbles:

 

1) It appears that every thread going back to around mid-January is listed as unread. Just a bit of an annoyance looking for the newest threads and the last unread posts, which shouldn't be a problem in the future but could bother people as they log in for the first time.

 

2) I can't seem to find some of the same board options as before, particularly the ability to change the number of posts per page. I always like to set that to as high a number as I can so I'm not constantly clicking through new pages, but I'll get used to fewer if needed.

 

Other than those, this looks pretty good so far. Nice work.

So is the Maryland Flag swatch thing gone for good? (For the Karma)

 

I know the "rep" now is the "Like This" button. Is there anyway to add the functionality to leave a comment with that rep and also be able to view comments others have left you for rep?

Tapatalk is now up and running again.   You shouldn't have to change anything on your side, just try to access it again.

 

Let me know if you have any trouble.

I don't believe this has been determined as of yet. If we can add the flag back... we will.
Will also look into being able to add any comments with rep.

Thanks Chris. Don't lose any sleep over it or anything, I'm not that worried. Just my .02 cents.

 

Love the changes. 

 

-When on a page, it shows a pop-up after a minute or two showing how many replies there have been (very useful for the game threads)

-The Mobile site is awesome

-Being able to "like" from tapatalk is great

-The Hover Over feature when hovering over a poster's name (allowing you to quickly message them, or see their rep, etc.) is also very, very nice

Congratulations on the new board Chris! I am liking the changes so far! I have been able to check out the board from the mobile site, Tapatalk, and finally the full site from a PC and I haven't had any issues!

 

Looking forward to more positive changes!

What needs to be done for the videos from YouTube that were posted before to show up and will there be any easy way to post YouTube videos?

I'll look into fixing existing YouTube videos from posts made in the old board.   The old board used a tag called [youtube] that isn't set up in this one (yet).

 

Here's how posting YouTube videos works for now:

You can also just paste the YouTube URL into a reply. It's configured to automatically transform it into an embedded video.

I know I have the ability to edit the name of any thread as a whole...  but is there a way to have topic title showing by post?

 

Example) Thread Title: NBA Talk April

 

If I want to include a link in that thread (Grantland: Kobe being unselfishly selfish)... is there a way to have that 'topic' showing within the larger thread?

This will take some getting used to but I think I like it.

It still matches the color scheme.  You should see the fancy one I have on a certain other board.
