    Am I blind? How do you see what member # you are?
  2. I don't see it either.

    Also, when I click reply to your post, it takes a second to put in the quote info. I'm sure it's just how the forum works, but I keep typing stuff up before the quote is put in, and then everything is separated. Not a huge deal, just an observation. I have to slow myself down. "I'm all jacked up on Mountain Dew!"

    Edit: I see it now. Thanks Bill! So what happens when I edit that number in the quoted text?

    Edit again: It appears, nothing with that one, but if you edit the post: ####, when you hit the arrow, it will jump to a different post in the forum, regardless if it was in this thread.

    Ohhhh. I feel unspecial Mr. 708 :( haha


    [edit] Though I am confused seeing as it states there are a "total" of only 286k members on the front page of the forums...

    You still can do it - nested quoting - but you will need to do some code tweaking.

    Personally, I was never a big fan of series of replies, because it was harder to understand to which reply a reply was posted.

    I believe that's pages not members.

    Edit: I now see what you're referring to. That's how many BAs have signed on to the new site?

    What forum platform is this?
    Next version? It seems a bit odd that it's not included already. I thought this option was known/requested for a while. I think you should probably be able to turn it on/off from within the code, once you get familiar with it.
  9. Definitely different, but I think it'll be great once it's complete! Thanks Bros! I almost forgot what it's like to get on BA all day lol

    I kinda liked it the other way, kept the trade forum clean.

    I agree. I also preferred the quiet.

    Liking this new format a lot better than the old one.

    Do agree that it would be nice to be able to to customize the appearance to our preferences.

    Can't wait for the reviews to be re-opened, the thing I like most about this site and don't think that will ever change.

    I am still not seeing these numbers that you all are.
  21. You have to hit Reply to the far right of someone's post. When the quoted text goes into the reply field, it says quote="Member Name, post: ####, member: member number"

    Once you hit post, all that info is hidden in the code. but you can see it again if you click edit.
  22. Sesmu

    Sesmu Savant (335) Massachusetts Feb 28, 2007

    Just do a mouse-over the name and you'll see the number in the bottom right corner (or wherever your browser shows.)

    So... whats happening to beer karma, i know we dont talk about it, but i was pretty close to a tier upgrade, and it doesnt sound like its all that impt, but ive been on the site since 05, and i'd like to know if what ive been working at for 7 years will be replaced with an OC reward based system or one that is based on how many likes you get, posts, reviews etc.

    I dont want to comment until its finished, but layout was a big reason for sticking with BA... this forum layout, as it stands now, is reminiscent of the run of the mill car or fishing forums that i overlook on a daily basis.
  26. I posted an in-line picture on this thread earlier today (and even got a like), but now that post is gone with no record of it. I wonder if posting pictures is not kosher for BA... Bros, was this post deleted or are there still some server issues? I was excited about the change until my first post vanished. :confused:

    member-90998 btw... to find your member number, click reply on a post you made in the forum, and it comes up with a html style [ code member number:#####]

    Happy as hell to be hanging out drinking with all my fellow BAs ~ Cheers!
  30. So far so good. Can't wait until everything returns to normal. The huge spaces between replies is a little much but we'll all probably get used to it quick.
  31. The reply system revamp was long overdue imo. Only thing I don't like is the new sizing and I miss the black pages which always worked somehow. For those interested, pressing CTRL and - at the same time will zoom out the screen a bit which helps.

    +oh and the new speed is instantly noticeable. WOWZA its about time!!
  32. Big difference after zooming out a bit!
    I agree the speed difference is ridiculous!

    When you hit reply, in the quote text above it should say it. also you can mouse over the name and see the number in the bottom left corner of the browser, as someone else has pointed out
