Thumbs up [abime.net] Welcome to EAB3 !

First a little bit cleaning was necessary to start again
  • all users who did not log during the last year where removed,
  • all users who did not log during the last two months and who have less then 10 posts where removed,
  • all banned users were unbanned,
  • all moderator status are gone, (any active EAB2 moderator can renew his status by sending me a PM)
  • all private forum accesses are gone, (any active EAB2 special access can renew his status by sending me a PM)
-> ~700 inactive users were delete !
-> The community has now ~500 Members, ~10.000 Threads and ~100.000 Posts


What's new ?

There is so much to say about this release that I won't write them all !
Anyway here are some important things
  • Fresh clean design
  • Three new Message Editor Interfaces (WYSIWYG, classic, light..)
  • One quick reply area at the end of each threads
  • New auto research of similar topics at the end of each threads
  • New buddy list / private messages interface
  • New reputation system
  • New Members List with HomePage / Posts / LastVisit / Reputation / Avatar
  • New attachement system integrated in control panel
  • Multiple attachement support, + thumbnail preview for uploaded pictures
  • The Zone was integrated in board, Files will now have one week of TTL
  • Irc channel overview integrated in board
  • Spider bot friendly
  • The abime.net News portal is integrated in EAB, anyone will be able to submit news (moderated)
  • etc...
As an active member, what I have to do ?
  1. If you have problem to login, clean your old cookies and retry.
  2. Open your Control Panel and check all the options !
    -> update your Birth Date, Instant Messaging, TimeZone, Message Editor Interface...
    -> clean your old attachments, private messages, buddy list...
    -> You wanna access The Zone ? Click on Group Membership and join the "Access - The Zone" group. (+ you will have 10Mb of attachment storage)
  3. Read the EAB FAQ and be ready to help me to setup one amiga FAQ! newbie will be redirected here, so we have to produce a nice FAQ !
  4. If you where moderator, send me a PM to confirm you still want to moderate, and precise me witch forums you want. (News, Zone, Off topic, etc..)
  5. If you had access to one private forum, send me a PM to confirm that you still want to have access.
  6. Enjoy the EAB3 experience !

Took me a bit of time to figure out how to access the new posts function because it was a completely revamped site.

I kinda liked the old site since I knew where to find stuff, but this new one looks great.

I miss the familiarity of the old board and the look too, but that's just a natural reaction, I have to give this new look time.

The new features are fantastic - the only thing that immediately struck me as being a step down from the old site is this new theme; it's way too bright! I think the colours need toning down a touch for my poor eyes!

Hmmm...

I don't know.
It looks good but it's a bit a step beyond IMHO.
The first page of v2 was far better to navigate, this seems quite a mess, I guess I have to come here frequently to improve myself!
Too much things to describe here, but as a retro-gamer, I prefered the old style.
Sorry.
(Nice work, however, don't take it too much seriously!)

@RCK:

When clicking on "New Posts" the column order is: Thread / Thread Starter - Last Post - Replies - Views - Forum. Can you please move the "Forum" column to the 2nd place ? (directly after Thread / Thread Starter).

Fantastic RCK.

Incredible amount of new useful things that definitely reign over the "bad" (?) points of the new forum.
Three things I like best:

- the shrinkable layout; browser can be shrunk a lot but you still see everything; not this terrible fixed resolution thing lots of forums have as "special feature"
- the PM manager
- the HOL quicklink

Also kudos for delighting us with a highly professional forum solution that -- don't forget this guys! -- actually costs money.

What do the little green squares stating that we are all on a "distinguished road" signify?
