    These have been around since the forum upgrade.

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

    Yes you are.

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

    I don't know who's got it worse there, the pea or the banana. :D

    I like the new icons. Looks really sharp.

    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 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! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeah. The eyes are a little bit too big.

    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.
  19. macrumors 68020


    still haven't decided weather i like them or not. some of them are cool, like :D and :p
    it adds color, but ones like :eek: and :eek: are kinda scary.

  23. macrumors 68040


    what does the green/gray circle next to the "report the post" icon (the one with "!" mark) mean? online/offline?
  24. macrumors 68020


    yeap, it does mean online/offline from what i understand.

    Place your cursor on the object to find out what it is - without clicking

    You do realize that these icons will tell you what they are if you simply "place" your cursor over them (without clicking), and the green/grey ball will tell you whether some one is offline/online. Try it on lots of the icons and buttons on the page.
