    So far, that's pretty much how the new board looks.

    Not bad. Looking forward to seeing how it will work out. Will we have graphics and such?

    I don't know how much we will keep (because in the past the board has gotten really cluttered-looking and hard to read when everything was allowed), but at the moment, you can have an avatar, there are new smilies, you can have graphics in posts, you can embed video in posts, etc. There are a lot of changes. I can see some of them causing trouble already , but most of them I think will be popular.

    Yes, but they haven't been moved over yet.

    What's a graemlins?

    Bit of an update on this. I've been doing some work on this behind the scenes. Will be testing more with staff perhaps this weekend and then we'll get some users in too.

    Graemlins is an FSU term for emoticons. Looking forward to seeing how new board works. Thanks for all your work!

    Quick question will the new format still have the shortcut to the first unread post in a thread?

    Not quite. The system knows which posts are 'read' and which are 'unread'. Because of this, when you click in to a thread from the discussion list, the system will take you straight to the first unread post. It's fluid, accurate and is easier than clicking a separate button to go to the first unread. Also what's wrong with DV

    I hope that makes sense and if anyone else has any questions, feel free to ask here and I'll get to them. As for testing, we're not quite ready yet and I hope to open it to testers some time this week.

    Oooo! So that means when you click on a thread title it'll take you right to your first unread post? That will be awesome! I've been wishing that sometimes when I have to click the button. It'll be so much easier on the tablet and phone.

    What is DV?
    Personally I think the conversation bubbles look cheezy. And cheap.
    Are all graphics going to be labeled so those of us (me) who turn graphics off still know what the deal is? Cause like right now when someone uses an emoticon it's not labeled leaving me a lot of "wtf they say??" moments.
    Have a nice day!

    DV - Darth Vader. That's the avatar Server Guy used.

    Um, the conversation bubbles can be changed if need be. The style is a work in progress, so yeah.
