Thread: Welcome Home!

  1. #1

    Default Welcome Home!

    Welcome to the new platform! Some of you will find the new look very familiar, and some may have some exploring to do. However we hope all of you will find it easy to navigate and easy to use.

    If you have not done so, please read this "Orientation Day" blog post which has more information about the site changes.

    There are links to the new rules on every page of the community. Please take time to familarise yourselves with this and the terms of use. In the spirit of new beginnings everyone who was an active member on the old site will have a clean start on the new site, as we are replacing the old infractions system. Please make the most of this and ensure that you adhere to the rules. They are there to ensure everyone enjoys a happy and peaceful use of the many features that Basenotes has to offer as a community.


    We are bringing the community back to its original purpose - the discussion of fragrance. Therefore you may notice a few changes on the boards, for example the absence of off-topic. We were and are primarily a site for the discussion of the fragrance industry. This is such a wide and fascinating area, we would like to concentrate solely on this.


    We feel it is important that you have a say in the direction the community takes. We have retained the report button for pornography and abusive posts. We have also added a “like” button. This should eliminate the need for the “plus 1” and “agree” posts that do not further the conversation. It will also enable us to compile a list of popular threads. Also new is the “objection” button. Where you feel a post is tasteless, not relevant to Basenotes or otherwise not to your taste, you can use the objection button. If enough people object to a post it will be hidden from view. In this way you have the power to direct the tone of the boards.


    Do not forget we are not just a community! Check out the other areas of the constantly growing site for news, reviews, competitions, interviews with industry luminaries and of course the Basenotes invented wardrobe features.

    We cannot wait for your feedback and thoughts about our new home. Please post in the community centre if you have any questions or suggestions.

    We hope you enjoy your new home,

    The Basenotes Team

    Hello folks.

    Sorry for the extended delay - things didn't quite go to plan.

    Still, we are here and we are working. Over the next several weeks we will be importing the data from Huddler - keep the faith dudes, and we will keep working to restore the data.

    Isn't this whole thread off topic? It's not about fragrances

    Removing the off topic forum seems silly. Then again, putting all of that effort into moving over to huddler only to bail on it and switch back a few months later seems silly too. It's good to be back though. Huddler sites aren't very good.

    It's O.K. - it's not lost - it's being transferred now that we've moved, so it should be fine soon!
    The transfer will also slow down the site a little until complete.

    It's not lost, it's not here at present. All the data will be imported, and you can find a rough-and-ready version of a most of the threads from the last 6 months on these pages here http://www.basenotes.net/huddlerarchive/ -- which although they can't be responded to, may be useful for reference.

    This is not Kansas, Toto..

    I will miss the Off Topic Board. Man, or woman for that matter, does not live by fragrance alone. Now I must go off-site to take a break and to other forums to read/share interesting non-fragrance things.

    I will have to spread my wings elsewhere from time to time. Oh well..

    Hi, its hardly a matter of significance, but I notice that the new blog has demoted me to Newb status. My first post this evening is listed as my first post, ever. Perhaps at my age I should welcome any opportunity to turn back the clock. Will my post count under the new/old system be added to that in the old/new?
    have a good one...

    Honestly, this really sobers me to just how crappy the site looked before the visual upgrade to the new one we had the last few months. Nothing against the site personally, as I know things were done for a reason, but I feel like it's 2002 on basenotes now.

    I do like the like and objection buttons though.

    Perhaps I'm in the minority, but I loved the previous board as it was fresh, fast, and fast lol. However, I feel this is fashion backward. In any case, I'm glad you're all back! You don't realize how much this is a part of our day until it's gone and whatever is decided I support to the fullest and wish well, so cheers mates!

    Agreed, I was having Basenotes withdrawal. lol

    Just when I was getting used to the Huddler site, we get switched back. I think I can get used to this version now as well. I do agree with an earlier post that the look & feel of the site seems old school again. However, it does seem more homely and the design is more fragrance-centric, which is good .

    The Huddler site was quicker, but hopefully this site will be quicker again. One thing I do miss was that in the Huddler site, the avatar image quality was much better than the current one. It seems like the avatars are pixelated again. Not sure if this can be improved in a future enhancement.

    I'm happy to be back online with BN - first and foremost. Like returning to my wardrobe, signature, blog, and AUTO-SAVE. It's a bit slow, but I'm OK with that. Looking forward to some new things that couldn't be done at Huddler.

    I agree.

    The new forum looked better and it felt faster.
    Now load times are sloooooooow again.

    Why go back to the 90's web design wise again ?
    It feels slow
    The search engine is slow
    The design looks so 1996, and not in a good way

    Sorry just my honest opinion.
