How do I... in this forum now?
« on: May 14, 2011, 05:02:22 PM »

Since we are going to have lots of questions about this forum style now, I thought I would start this so everyone can help each other.


My First question is...

How do I edit my post now?  >:D   I do not see the modify link that we used before.  Not a serious thing but a very nice thing to have.  O0

I had to use the new icons somehow  :lol:

There should be an "edit" button in the top right corner of posts you made.

I know that the administrators put a lot of effort into making sure that the site is up and running so I'm not trying to discredit anyone by saying this, but as Mr. Horse would say: "No sir, I don't like it". It's going to take a LOT of getting used to the new look of the forum. For now, I experience severe dizzyness when I try to navigate through the posts, and this doesn't have anything to do with my font size or screen resolution. Is the new look of the site temporary only? If so for how long? My first impression when I first got here was "this looks so un gi joe....and blue icy cold".

EDIT: I guess I forgot to read the announcement on the homepage, which pretty much explains the change to the website. So it's all clear now. I guess I'll get slowly used to the changes which shouldn't be a problem  8) .

EDIT May 17th: I'm really trying hard to find the new look of the forum normal. I am. I think it's a cosmic sign for the LJ to take a temporary leave from CJC, and hopefully when I come back, I will be able to appreciate the new set-up from a fresh point of view. Right now, the main focus is the CJC anyway, and I find it rather strange that each year I undergo a lot of stress at work (it's always like I'm beeing tested just before the CJC, no matter what date it is)....It must be a cosmic thing too ;D ! Better to laugh at it, so that I can get through it all. Likewise, don't forget to laugh through your ups and downs it will help you a lot trust me. Until the Con, I look forward to seeing the usual gang, Grunt, Pdaat, M&M (it will be weird not to ride in the M.A.R.T.I.N this year), 5h4rk, Dodge822, and the rest of you. "Gundam Strike - Launch!"

From the index, we can see the latest post and poster in a given forum, but not what specific thread it was.
I think we could see the thread before, which was helpful.
Just my 2 cents.

Thought I posted this already, but I must've forgotten or switched pages or something...

I liked how before we could see which thread the latest forum post was is. Now from the index, it just shows date and name, not which thread has been most recently posted in.
My 2 cents.

Why does it chop off the right hand third of the pictures in the reveiews section?  Is there a specific size I need to set the pics to in photobucket or something?   ???

If you go into your control panel, go to board preferences, and switch the theme to "subsilver2"

That will make things more "normal" for now, until we have time to properly modify a theme for JC use.

luckily a forum Ive been going to for the past 8 years uses this format :)  Its actually a pretty good template once you get use to it, the only thing I dont like is the blue, go back to red!
