    Loving the new forum, Todd - can't wait to see it all up and humming. I plan on popping some good bottles this weekend.

    Awesome update. Thanks for all the hard work.
     
  3. To be honest I really like everything about the new look BA...except for the fact that all of Europe is lumped together under one forum.
    The demise of the UK Forum is a travesty.

    With the inability to tick, I've lost all sense of self. During the "reviewing blackout" I could only force myself to drink beers I had already tried before.

    So we can review beers, add had, want, gots, but can't see beers reviewed or a list of Wants or Gots? Is this about accurate at this time?

    Where? On the old site when I click user profile it directs me here, and I don't see anything about beer reviews, gots, wants, etc. on the new site. Thanks.

    Left hand nav. http://beeradvocate.com. Look for: "Your: Beers | Places," which contains all of your beer/place reviews and Hads, Wants and Gots.
     
  13. Still getting familiar but liking what I have explored thus far......

    I like where this is going. Like all things, it takes time to embrace change.
     
  17. Without a little pain, there is no gain. Nice job putting the pieces together BA Boyz...for an even better BA experience.

    Hey Todd and Jason! Are the lists of Ba buddies going to be restored when the site is fully integrated? Trying to find a few of my BA buddies and I can't find them anywhere? Also will be be able to look for BA's by the state just like the old site allowed us to do?

    oh no. change!
    8 years and i have seen alot of small steps. it is good to see you took a leap.
    it's been a long time coming (hey, it's been a long, long time coming...)

    and when do these new hires come on board? if the community continues to grow the away it has been, it will only become more and more difficult for the cranky old timers to figure out what is going on in their corner of the beer world.

    So I have scoured the forum posts on the new BA and I have may have missed this but... will the "stats" part of a member's profile come back? ie. Number of beers reviewed, broken into "can" "bottle" "cask" etc catagories?

    Thanks Bros. for the hard work and new look!

  25. Awesome work, gents. Looking forward to the new features, but I'm patient. It's been a long couple weeks for you, I imagine. Take a vacation once this is integrated.

    Todd, will we eventually get a "Top Stories" page on the home page or somewhere like on the old site? I really liked that feature - I understand it'll be a while.

    Thanks. I could not find my other one. This one was taken a couple of years ago, much more current than the other one.

    so quick question. are "conversations" the same as "beer mail"? only the people in the "conversation" can see them right? it's not a public conversation?

    <<Post reviews of beers/places; as well as edit and delete your own reviews.>>

    Can I get to a listing of my reviews? Or just add/edit/delete if I look them up individually? Thanks
     
  36. Todd

    Todd Founder (1,685) Colorado Aug 23, 1996 Staff Member

    Correct. Conversations have replaced Beer Mails. They allow you to have a private thread with up to 25 people.

    Yep. Just like before. http://beeradvocate.com. Left hand nav. "Your: Beers | Places"

    Todd,

    What about: List of styles we use to have? Which states/countries we have had beers from?

    Cheers!

    Many Thanks Todd. Should I admit I NEVER saw that link as much as I've used the site for 4 years? (Probably not)
    I always went in through my profile.
    Thanks again. (let's just all pretend I didn't admit that) :oops: (totally deserves an appropriate emoticon!)

    I'm having a tough time with this new format since I don't Twitter, Facebook, or participate in any social websites except Linked In (which is limited), 'Guess I''m old fashioned. Kudos to you Todd for putting all of this hard work into the new format. I really liked the previous format and the only gripe was the slowness during peak hours, other than that, everything with this website was just fine.
