    We performed a long overdue upgrade to the MacRumors forums tonight. Our primary goal is to make sure the upgrade goes smoothly and all existing functionality remains. To focus on that goal, we haven't enabled all the new features yet, but will decide on what new features will be activated at a later date.

    If you notice any problems/issues, please reply in this thread and we'll fix the issues as they arise.

    Looks like the favicon is gone now. The one for Form Spy is still there tho.

    Snappier?


    But seriously, what are some of the active new features?



    Oh, I see that our Profile looks different. So there's one.

    We'll be starting separate threads to discuss changes in the forum features in detail, but you are welcome comment on what you notice!

    You and your games, Doctor Q. ;)

    Your new threads plan is much better than us posting noticed changes in this one.

    I hope the upgrade went smoothly.........

    looking good! thats a great feature.


    community->pictures and albums - the links inside there to go to the actual album is broken, you have to go to the profile of the user then through to the albums as a work around.

    I have it so that several forums are excluded from when I do a search for new posts. But currently those forums are not being excluded from the results. I'd rather not have to see the political and iPhone forum, among others :p

    Thanks. We didn't find an obvious reason for this glitch so far, but we're looking into it. The pictures are missing AND the links are broken, so we hope to fix both problems.

    no problems, certainly a bit odd! Maybe it is pointing somewhere else?

    Goodluck fixing it :) and great job at keeping everything active!

    edit: FYI ive noticed the pages are a tad slow at loading, and emails are coming through a bit slower, but that might change.

    I looked into this a bit more and it seems as though when I click on the New Posts link it is not registering the forums that I want excluded. In other words it is just getting the new threads instead of taking into account the exclude portion that should be appended to the end of the URL.
