Hi everyone,

I sincerely apologize for the downtime on the forums today, but we were making a large upgrade to a new forum, and moving to a new domain. As you can see the forums will now be found at http://forums.stickpage.com ... update your bookmarks!

Before you ask, we couldn't move the old forum style over, so I'll be hard at work on a new one right away.

You'll be seeing a lot of activity on Stickpage soon, we're working very hard on a re-vamped portal system; this forum upgrade was part of that process. Also, we'll be introducing a new Moderator in the next few days (hint: he likes to kill stick dudes in arenas).

Thank you for your patience!

Also, now that you're so close to finishing these updates, for God's sake can somebody reply to my mails?! I'm getting a little stressed out here. I don't want to have to move to NewGrounds or something radical like that. :|

The old one was clearer and It wasn't the fact that we were used to it but that the text was easier to read as it was huge O_O but still. New one doesn't feel original, it just looks like one of those new 'forummotions'. Also logo is notwendig. =P

especially search results, i live in "New Posts"

Mantha
03-25-2010, 04:37 AM
I think the older one is not compatible with the newer version of VBulletin.

I also assume the logo and the banner will be added later. Along with all the other improvements.

"New Posts" = "What's New?"

Well atm it looks generic and amateurish, because its using the default skin.

This is like looking at a construction site and commenting on the building.

I'm just not sure why the old forums couldn't continue WHILE they set this up, but hey.

Thanks for your feedback everyone.

The old forum style was indeed not compatible with the latest version of VB... unfortunately we were WAY behind on our upgrades. You should only be stuck with this style for a few days, I'm working hard on a new one that'll be unique to Stickpage.

Oh, and the [swf] tags are coming back too, shouldn't take me too long to sort that out!

A bit darker would indeed be pretty cool, the colors of the old skin were great indeed. Easy on the eyes and everything. I'm pretty hammered right now, but bright colors in forums are a huge problem for me, it was part of SPP's atmosphere that the skin was in a gray touch. Then again I'm really looking forward to the new skin and it's still awesome to see the forums finally be upgraded. I also think that after all these years with the old forums, this seems like a much bigger step than it actually is.

Everything's a lot faster now, and I can appreciate that. I'm sure it'll all be good once the teething issues are sorted. Any way to get the profiles overlapping the signatures? These big blank spaces make for extra scrolling and harder-to-spot invisitext.

I only agree with everything you just said. The gaps are quite annoying. I'll also repeat the previous notion about making the usernames bigger, because now it's a little unsettling. Most users I identify by their avatars and signatures anyway, but still.

That would be completely pointless since the whole reason for this was to update vB and most people want the old skin back...

It's cool to see some changes around here for once. It's kind of weird that the NTF members are still bold and Respected members are still purple but the mods and admins look like everyone else. I'm sure it will be fixed soon, but it's just weird to see Paperclip and Mantha looking like normal members.
