Works on my iPhone but is slow as hell. Not sure if it's related.
Very nice work, Grant. Thank you for all you do!
Any idea when the Itrader will be back up?
Great work so far, Grant, and it seems like you have a longish list yet to go. I just want you to know that we are grateful for all you do and heartily support you as you continue to work away at making Basenotes ever better. Best wishes for the coming year to you and yours!
I posted this elsewhere but am going to copy it here where I hope it is seen.
I do not like the new forum layout.
I much preferred the old format, with name & logo on the left, "vital statistics" on the right, and the body of the post below both, aligned to the left. Putting all member information on the far left makes it stand out, competing for attention with the actual post itself, plus creates much more vertical whitespace (aka additional scrolling). Some like whitespace; I don't. I would prefer to keep members messages the focus rather than the members themselves, no offense.
Cheers, Grant, and thanks a million. Looks like you've got the biggies. And I should mention that BN is working on my Palm Pre, so at least some mobiles are working with it. Thanks again! -RP
Excellent job !! Thanks Grant.
I hate to be the turd in the punch bowl, but I preferred the old look.
Then again, I voted for McCain so most people would think I don't know my head from my hole...
Still love BN though!
Nice look, Grant! Does take a bit of getting used to, but I think overall it'll be a truly winning upgrade!
Missing the wardrobe icons, though I finally managed to locate my own Wardrobe
Lookin' GOOOOOOOD. Let us know what we can do to help!
Thank you Grant - you are doing great ! It is all very appreciated - I can only imagine what a headache all the recoding is for you . The thought of all the work that you have had to do makes my toes curl .
Looks fresh and modern! And maybe the new look will inspire me to try new paths and links (I'm kinda old fashioned and tend to do things as before Thank you, Grant, for the work and well, generally being an inspiration.
Can't seem to post any reviews. Hope it's just temporary... But the upgrade is off to a good start!
Ciao Grant, I attract your attention to the fact that the search engine does not have yet the option "show the results by posts" as it had before. Instead it shows the results by threads which are sometimes of several pages, rendering the search feature mostly useless.
I hope that it is only momentary.
I second JaimeB's hope that visitor counts reappear with each blog entry. If a blog doesn't generate any comments, the views are the only way I know anyone was at all interested.
Also, in my member profile, Biography section, the biography I entered has gotten truncated in mid-sentence to about 1.5 lines. I used the edit feature to complete the entry. I saw everything after I did a save and then a return. But when I went to one of my posts, and from there to my profile, the bio was truncated again.
I also have some experience with product upgrades. Maybe you should have a Grant-o-meter that displays kilos of coffee (or tea) consumed during this campaign, or hours since last nap.
The new forum looks A M A Z I N G !!!
Thanx for all the hard work.
Great work, Grant.
I notice that the member profile section in threads does not indicate gender as well as a member's country/flag. Is this the new format, or are those features yet to be added?
Also, the online/offline indicators are not as obvious as before, due to the smaller size of the graphic. Perhaps a more contrasting colour than the current green could be used.
I can't even begin to imagine what you are facing with all this - good luck and thanks as you wade thru the programming stuff
Feels modern and friendly to me - nice.
Thanks Grantman I couldn't imagine how hard fixing all the kinks would be. It'll take some getting used to.. I feel like I'm floating around in a sea of white haha! Keep up the good work
Let's all be patient and give Grant a break here! He's doing a ton of work and there will be some bugs to work out.
