    I know it doesnt look much like FSU at the moment but please, this is a big upgrade and we will be working more on it over the next few days. Thankyou for your patience. The board works, right? :)

    I'll admit not being a fan of the new vBulletin (one of the reasons I stopped going to Goldenskate), but I'll bear it for FSU :)

    Thanks :D The old version was just becoming too buggy (Hence the slowness we experienced during the Olympics at times and since then occasionally too) I too am not a fan and held out as long as possible. We'll get used to it.

    Hate the new look. :( Hopefully you guys can work with it.

    Will this make it easier to read FSU on a phone? Because if so, I can live with it.......I think.....

    Thanks for all you do, Sharpie!

    I'm sure this wasn't easy to get done. Sharpie, you rock :respec:

    At the moment it's frustrating but give me a week and the old version will look weird to me.

    I don't see User CP, which used to help me find reputation given/received, and use the 'ignore'. I hope it will return, otherwise I will be completely lost.

    I hope this look is kept. Sure, it's a little weird considering we've been used to something else for years and years, but I think it's a lot more aesthetically pleasing.

    It's a relief to have fsu back, although I am wandering around it like a blind person, trying to find familiar things. One thing that I noticed is that the text is a lot lighter than what we had before, and it's straining my eyes (not enough contrast). Is it just my imagination? If not, any chance it will be darkened?

    What's the new way to jump to your last post in a thread, if that option still exists? I can click that tiny blue chevron-ish button to go to the last unread, but I don't see any replacement for the arrow icon.

    *Sigh* The only other forum I frequent (sffworld.com) upgraded this week too. I hate change.

    At least we didn't enable avatars.

    I've been watching a marathon of Star Trek Voyager lately, and to quote Seven of Nine- "I will adapt."

    Thank you for all the care you put into making this the best forum on the net. :)

    Totally! I had such withdrawal shakes.
    Am confused a bit, but I am here for the content, so I'll get used to whatever.
    Thank you!

    Thanks for all the hard work Sharpie!

    Does anyone else see messages that were posted on other people's user page? When I opened up FSU I saw that Really had posted a happy birthday message to PeterG. I suppose that particular message isn't private, but I'm wondering if it is supposed to be there for me to see?

    By the way, happy birthday PeterG :)

    Yeah. I'm squinting. Turning the contrast on my computer all the way down helps a bit, but then things get dim.

    Glad FSU is back up, and after dealing with the insanely weird new commenting systems on Gawker and Jezebel, getting used to vBulletin will be a snap. Thanks for all the hard work!

    *sigh* another change in my life I must get use to. :drama:

    Thanks SHARPIE and team.

    And thanks for taking the forum down on the one day I needed to work 15 hours. I didn't even know it was missing. :lol:
