    I thought this is just temporary "beta" version. BA isn't going to look like this from here on out I hope?

    Most recent unread != most recent. Being able to see the most recent unread post is a huge improvement. (I had actually written a greasemonkey script to attempt to recreate "see most recent unread". This is better.)

    Once the colors get implemented, it will be much better. The new forum is a huge improvement.

    I hope our profiles come back though. So I can still remember who I've traded with.

    Also...you can create a profile here if you just go to http://beeradvocate.com/community/account/personal-details and fill out "About Me"

    Glad the boards back.

    I'm going to echo others in saying that nested replies would be awesome, as well as some more information under member name/avatar (town, state, maybe joined date for ease of troll spotting).

    I really didn't like the nested replies.

    I vote for Nested replies, more replies per page (I really liked the one big page of the old system) and location tags. Other than that, I think I'll adapt OK (if I can figure out how to keep my font, size and color, so that I don't have to reset each time. But that's just me).

    A little icon so you can skip to your own last post of the thread, would be nice as well.
    Spoiler tags for photos, so it doesn't slow down certain threads.

    Can't wait for the color scheme to be normalized but...
    Cheers to having BA back!!!!

    I should clarify. When I say nested replies I mean having quote boxes inside a quote box. When I reply to yours I only see your post, and not my original. Makes following a conversation a bit more difficult. I know it can be a bit much when people are going back and forth so maybe max it out at 3 or 4. Actually, let me try something...

    Looks like it does work it just doesn't do it automatically when you reply to a post with a quote in it.

    That's a perfectly reasonable request, I think. I know PHPBB defaults to letting you continue quoting forever, but other forums I've used are like this and only go one-deep. I could see allowing it to go back a few being useful, but as long as there's a link to whatever you're quoting, so you can see what they quoted, and so on, it shouldn't be a huge deal.

    The reason I used to love this site was the "indentations" in the forums. BA was the only one like that and it was so easy to follow. Now its just like any other site. Doubt I will visist as often.

    They'll return. Things will be a bit disjointed visually for a bit, but we'll eventually sync things up.

    Not sure that I like the new look. I always enjoyed the way that responses were attached to the original comment. Or maybe I am just resistant to change...

    You can change the time stamps on your preferences page to match your timezone.

    You can still access your old profile from the main home page. A little copy paste action will take care of your issue.

    Yeah I don't like the fact that it takes up the whole width because of my 22" screen. Oh well I'll get used to it. Glad to see things are getting back up and running again!

    Is there a way to search for specific members like there used to be? I just tried looking up a couple and failed.

    If you know the exact name of the member, it will come up on the right side of the screen when you search it. If you misspell though, I think right now you're SOL.

    glad to see Shogo survived a week without the forums. I wonder what he did with all of his free time? build a model airplane? find the cure for cancer?

    I kind of liked how responses to one's comments were indented underneath the original post. It created more of a conversation instead of searching through pages of simultaneous conversations to see if anyone responded directly to you.

    Ahh Ok, I was searching in the wrong places (story of my life really). Now if I can figure out how to keep the font I want....

    Ahhh, never occurred to me. Thank you.

    On a side note, I also miss the 'nesting' style of the old forum. I'd like to see that return if possible. It definitely makes 'conversations' easier to follow.
