Some of you have been looking forward to this, some of you not so much so, but the new forums are here and I've done my best to make them a similar but ultimately superior experience to the old system.

If you notice any quirks in the design or functionality please post here and I will look into them.  The feature set is pretty much decided for the time being but if there are any features that you feel are out of place or are sorely missing, by all means speak up!

Just to comment on a few of the features/changes...

- Polls no longer have their own forum.  Feel free to post your polls in the forum of appropriate topic and we'll see how that goes for now.

- Registration (including an e-mail address) is now required to post.  Fortunately you have the option of hiding your e-mail address from the general public while still allowing people to contact you via the forums' form e-mail, which I recommend.  Still, although I'm fairly confident in the security of these forums from spammers, as a general rule I recommend you register an e-mail address other than your main one (an extra hotmail account, for example).

- Use of cookies to automate login is optional.  One thing to be aware of is that if cookies are enabled, they will be automatically set on any PC from which you log in and until you log out from it.  So after logging in from public PCs be sure to log out after, or if you're worried about forgetting just disable cookies altogether.

Everything else is pretty self-explanatory I think.  The fresh forums look a little lonely for now but I'm looking forward to seeing them grow!  Post away,

Adam

Hm... feels a lot different, but I'm sure that we'll eventually get used to it. :x

I especially like the options to disable signature lines and avatars if desired.  I can't count the number of times I've been on some other foum where someone's signature takes up 80% of their post space.  That feature will help retain the feel of the classic board.

I liked the old forums, but I certainly understand the need for registration.  I'm sure these new forums will work out well, thanks for working on this.

While I considered changing my name at this point to reflect what I use elsewhere (and to reflect the disdain I generally have toward Star Wars Episode 1), I left myself as this since I've been posting under this name for way too many years.  Anyway, good to see the new stuff up and running... nice job, Adam!

Dayum... Remember the old old system... I used to use it! lol Nice to see things are finally moving along. Bout time it got a replacement!

Ahh, I knew the day would finally come.  Still has that old "STC look," but it will certainly take me some time getting used to it.  STC is about the only forum I visit these days, aside from an occasional visit to SD every now and then.  Anyway, nice work Adam.  Good to see the site moving forward.

My god Benny, you're alive.  Let me know if you're ever up for some VM or VM Japan online.  Just like the old days. smile

Hehe... I felt similarly, and almost signed up as oddigy.  Old habits die hard, though.

Yeah, this forum format is definitely growing on me.  I've always preferred flat discussions to threaded ones.

Ha ha of course. Haven't played that game for ages. Think I forgot what each avatar does now.  Ya know you're the only person I've really played it with. Interesting thing to note is that VM2 Online is now a free download from Falcom (and in English!). Never could find anyone to play VM Japan though. ^^

Still lurked on the old forums every once in a while but uh... never really posted for some reason. Haven't really been in the scene much these past few years.

Not that I matter or anything, but I fully endorse these new forums.

They aren't as cluttered as vB and still simplified like the old ones.  I hate complex forums with 10,000 unused options.  The login feature should help with any ID issues and spammers.

I think readability on this one is more awkward.  I liked the usenet style forum posts of the old one, that way I could ignore subthreads that were going in a direction I didn't care about.
