    Because I keep getting flipped back and forth between mobile site and full site even tho I keep choosing full site. I am on a mobile but the mobile site looks as bland and uninformative as always. Moi is confused.

    The last rep comment I received failed to add to the total. Yes, I know that rep is a lot of nonsense, but has it now stopped?

    I repped you too, but I didn't check if your rep power went up.

    A little nervous that somehow I will be blocked from work...that is my only internet access at this time.

    I guess I will find out soon!

    I am going on vacation too. Looks like I will look at a brand new board upon my return.

    Wow! I thought you were just doing simple maintenance. :) I didn't know you were switching over! I was wondering when The Great Switch was going to happen. :) Stealthy.

    I see that we are on the new board and I have multiple problems with it.

    1.I cannot send a PM to another poster. The PM feature is nowhere. There is a 'conversation' but it's not letting me send that message to two members that I tried to contact. This is my biggest problem right now.

    2.No emoticons. It does not understand anything other than the :)

    3.I don't like the 'like' feature. Of course I knew that we were going to lose the 'rep' feature, and it has happened now. 'Like' is too much like facebook and I have a strong dislike for it. There is nothing I can do about it though.

    4.I had to log in this morning to access the board. I was dreading it, but it did allow me to log in. May be I have to wait until others have logged in too, before sending a message? I don't see a 'PM' option anywhere though. I don't want to have an open conversation where anyone can jump in. We have the entire board for that. May be a little clarification would help?

    5.Can we have a mini tutorial on what has changed? What have we lost and what are the new features we need to learn?

    I want to like your post, Vash01 :p

    I think a mini tutorial would be great.

    I do like the new look, it is a bit more smooth. I don't like the smilies, though.

    Very sneaky. :sneaky:
    Go to your profile page and then click your current picture.
    1) I'll look in to this.

    2) See below.

    3) Not much I can do, unfortunately. Will show @SHARPIE something later on that you might like though.

    4) Do you mean access this current board? It's because we're using new cookies (things that store your current browsing session). The old ones don't carry over so you had to re-login.

    5) See below.

    I'll write some when I get a breather. Still working on things! Smilies are coming back, just need to shuffle things around on the server.

    Vash I believe the Conversation feature serves as the PM feature. Unless you click the box at the bottom, other people won't be able to pop in or read. If you want, you can test it out with me. :)

    I don't mind the "like" feature. :)

    It doesn't let me. Says something like I don't have the rights to do it or it isn't working yet.

    Yeah, still working on things so it might be that. Could you try now for me please? I just adjusted your account.

    Hi, I'm sure it's just a glitch that will be sorted out soon, but I can't see the kiss-n-cry forums - it says "private". I can access "sekret sources", but the archives show as "private". I have a full premium membership so should be able to see everything.

    Thanks :)

    Thanks. Yeah I believe that is another issue I need to look at. Noticed that when as soon as the board was working again. Bare with me, I'll have it back soon but I may have to wait until @SHARPIE gets off work to help me figure out which groups should be able to see it.

    Nice work, Server Guy. For those not accustomed to such projects, what Sharpie and Server Guy have done is a BIG DEAL. It may take a few days to get everything sorted out, but to have the site in such a useable state after only a couple of hours of downtime is REALLY IMPRESSIVE.
