Huh?

These have been around since the forum upgrade.

Wait, scratch that, must have refreshed something after this post.

Nice.

Yes you are.

At least he's avoided using the animated smilies, they can be so annoying sometimes.

It's definitely getting interesting with all the random changes being made. It makes it more difficult to get bored with the design when something gets tweaked once or twice a week.

The word "candidate" disappeared from the bottom of the page. MacRumors changed from the vBulletin candidate release to the final version sometime this evening.

When I noticed that things started looking different, I checked down at the bottom and noticed that it's vBulletin Version 3.0.0, and not just a release candidate (beta version). So it's finalized and changed.

Are all version 3 vBulletin forums as crazy when you register to post comments, notanotherforum.com (http://www.notanotherforum.com) is strange, It's been a while since I've been through such an unusually rewarding process. Surely this can't be standard with all vBulletin sign ups?

Quite a few familiar people on there too. :)
Just the job when you feel the need to be way off topic :D

Hey -- the quote button finally says "Quote" instead of "Reply".

Thanks for all the updates!

Things are really strange on my side of the fence...Safari in its typical cache-a-holic behaviour has cached some, but not all of the smilies, resulting in some seriously ugly looks. *Shudders*

MacRumors had colors smilies in 2000-2001, but got rid of them for the technical yellow smilies for three years.

Feedback on icons: Mediocre to above average icons
Feedback on newly-updated smilies: Most look stupid and fugly! http://www.thetechpub.com/phpBB2/images/smiles/new_shocked.gif http://www.thetechpub.com/phpBB2/images/smiles/icon_twisted.gif http://www.thetechpub.com/phpBB2/images/smiles/new_snipersmilie.gif

I don't like the new :eek: - it looks too alien.

Odd, I'm not seeing any of the changes except for the version change at the bottom of the forums.

No new smilies for me, and the quote button is still different.

it adds color, but ones like :o and :eek: are kinda scary.

what does the green/gray circle next to the "report the post" icon (the one with "!" mark) mean? online/offline?

Try it on lots of the icons and buttons on the page.

good call. i had known that, but didn't have the patience... :p

i did try hovering my mouse over it to see if it was clickable and would lead some somewhere (like the "report to mod" icon) but didn't so, i took a wild guess...

However, I absolutely love what arn has done for us.

Have you tried your favorite FONT instead of the "default" or even the ones listed when doing a reply. I've found about a dozen fonts not listed that really work. This is a sample of LINOTEXT which is one of my favorites.

If this sentence does not appear in as Courier font, then Adobe font must be in your FONT folder to have it render. I also found out that some of the unlisted fonts will not show in BOLD and other font styles, but then some will. ;) Color does not affect the type.
