What was the reason for the sudden switch and not just upgrading to phpBB3? vB has a license fee associated with them. Is Monkly profitable? If so, I demand a cut!

Click "Back" in your browser?

I paid for it myself.

With the integrated CMPS , it replaces the forum and the joomla front end that Len was using before. Besides for being better software, there wasn't any real reason for the switch.

Gah, this is going to take some getting used to.. Definitely. It's so.. weird

Oh btw, super low filesize for signatures = weaksauce. Does this mean I'm going to have to drastically shrink my signature pictures and lose some of the quality of the picture

Possibly. Usually at that size, a GIF will net you more space than a PNG will. Try converting it. I will point out that it's 19.5 KB and 80x80 yet sig is 100x500 and 9.5. that probably should be updated.

Ehh, I prefer text sigs myself... less clutter, imo. I'll leave the graphics to avatars.

My sig is in PNG format already. The only way I could lower it would be to convert it to jpeg and shrink the shit out of it. And also lose some of the quality in Adobe PS

all of the file sizes etc probably still need to be modified.

I was going to use the MB Monkey as well, but I'm going as an Evil Ace Ventura this halloween so I went with that.

Can we get a "show all unread posts" button?

When I get home in the afternoon, all i have to do is hit that button on the old site and get a searched list of everything new from my last visit.

**never mind, found the new posts button, you work quick!

How hard would it have been to have a redirect where you left the old board?

A server generated 404 error as the only evidence of the move is quite imprudent(and unprofessional webmastery).

For what url is that?

How about the URL for the OOC section for starters.

http://forums.monkly-business.net/viewforum.php?f=13

That is what I had bookmarked(forum 13 being the OOC, I assume). Seeing as how there is a fraction of the traffic now since the move, it would seem that many posters had bookmarks like this.

Looking at the numbers, it seems that OOC is the driving section and most traveled forum(even more than General, the main forum).

Additionally, I would suggest in setting the little URL gif again to work.
