The RU Forums V2.0

Postby Zep Tepi » Mon Apr 14, 2008 2:58 am

...are finally here :)

If any of our registered members find that their passwords no longer work (which can happen in the case of non-standard characters in the password), simply request a new one from the login page.

For users who need to familiarise themselves with the new layout of the board, the menu above the header is where all of the user functions are located - in the Control Panel.

This version of the software offers a plethora of new features, my personal favourites being the ability to quote from multiple posts in the same thread and saving messages as drafts. I am pretty sure most people will have their own personal favourite before too long. :)

Don't be afraid to comment, either in the positive or if the change is not to your liking. All comments and suggestions are welcomed.

Cheers,
Steve

I hereby dub April 13th, 2008 as "RU 2.0 Day".

I'm sorry...but I mean - how much cooler could it possibly be. Superb job Steve....unbelievable work.

This is a stunning example of the god-like abilities of our very own Mr. Zep Tepi. Take a bow my friend...you deserve it.

Steve you rock! To say you've done an awesome job is putting it mildly... absolutely fabulous my man!

Wait... what's that I hear?

I could of sworn I just heard a chorus of angels singing as a new dawn breaks at Reality Uncovered…

Nah :)

That's what I told Steve too - but he said I was losing my mind.

Whatever man...I heard angels ok? And Tom did too...so there.

Look at those nifty curly blue squiggly lines...they're so cool. But I think I'm starting to get hypnotized...

Shawnna, I think you have to use the old school shorthand for goofy emoticons ;)

However, your *silly saying* is a ZILLION times more Graphic and Descriptive than any gif could Ever Be. Please don't stop using *goofy things*! They are Smarter.

as for the new board, nice. Easier on my eyes and am tickled pink that you put posts to the left and avatars to the right... Defy the Status Quo! he hee heee

The reply button makes more sense to me too,,, was having a hard time with the old one...

For some reason, my signature isn't appearing?

And still can't find the smileys or the edit button.

Hi Shawwna,

Edit button, smilies *shudders* and sigs all seem to be working fine in the other areas, I think it's just the Site Announcements that don't have them..

After all, this area is for Announcements, not chit chat, yes? No real need for bells and whistles here...

Duty gave up, now I feel guilty...

Time to go play for Real.

Thanks for the comments, it's appreciated :)

As far as the Edits and smilies go, that is the setting for this forum only, i.e the Announcements section. The default settings allow reading of the forum and making replies to topics started by staff, but that is all. I guess that's my fault, I should have locked the topic and linked to the Site Business forum.

Normal service is resumed in the other forums ;)

Now to look into the max connections problem, we can't be having that on our first day.

Cheers,
Steve

Just noticed Torbjon's reply, he had it right :)

Hi Chorlton, for some reason the board thinks you posted your comment half an hour from now :shock:

I suspect that will cause you problems posting again because of flood control so I've deleted it. Did the board screw up while you were on? The time is correct now but it may have been wrong when you posted it.

The forums have now joined the rest of the site at the new server, with only 35 minutes of downtime too :)

Those of you getting here by selecting an entry in your favourites list or address bar will notice the name changes automatically from .com to .net, please update your bookmarks accordingly.

Cheers,
Steve
