1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    What's transmod?

    Also, FWIW, I surf from a netbook with like a 10" screen. These ads make the content of the page only about 5" wide. :p


    transparent moderation log II. its pinned in general chat and is a must read for all members imo. issues like this are always dealt with in that thread and the mods will notice posts there before a random thread like this in MC.

    I also like them on top, and even if they are not on top. I hate them on the side. It takes 20% of my screen space and makes the thread content all crunched up.

    It is clearly a bad idea as the existence of a few ads at the start of the page leads to shrinkage all the way down

    So unless SF is planning to have enough ads to fill the whole of the right side of the page it is totally self-defeating

    Golden eggs are rare so you should not overly disturb the hen

    But they are gone from the top as well, I actually liked having them on top...

    The affiliate logos at the top of each page were great. Unobtrusive, yet we all know where they are when we want to click on them.

    If SF really wants to run affiliate logos down the page, at least reduce it to one column. Having two great big chunky columns of affiliate logos is not helpful to those of us with smaller/lower res monitors. [​IMG]

    Guys - as someone else mentioned in TransMod, there will be a lot of boxes moved over the next 2 days until the forum transition is complete on Wed. Even after that, there will be bugs and glitches, and things to get used to.

    Ive been on the test site for a bit, as some of you also have - and the sidebar and new layout does take some getting used to, but it does not look like this. It was strange at first, but it definitely looks much cleaner, more professional, and has some super duper neato new features.

    Im the last one to adapt to change, but trust me, its worth it.

    Actually, in the new forum, the body of the threads wrap back around, so the right hand column is not empty, as it is now. We are just playing around with the capabilties VB (God knows why.)

    We also use the right hand column for other things - examples include product reviews (right now, the feed is not great, but we plan to add feed from people like ShoptheFinest, and members can add items manually,) lists of a seller's other active items in the new B&S system (Spoopoker, this one is for you), and a preview of your PM box (on the front page only, when you are logged in, of course.)

    Other features will be threaded PMs, a whole new B&S system, lots of new editorial content, including regular interviews and articles about clothing and shoes manufacture, etc...

    There are always naysayers, but I think that most of you guys will like it.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
