Default Pros and Cons of the new Website

Pros:
The short out box is a lot better.
I find it sexy that you can use PHP tags
I like how its much easier to post pictures/videos
I like how I got a email about for thanking me for registering at the LKM Forums Bitch. (lol)
Having the user active the account is a lot more secure and less dumb spider bots will be able to reach the the site.
Cons:
I have not tried it yet, but giving PHP access to users seems like a security breach. I'm not sure if you are limited in what you can do in the PHP tags.
I find the layout a bit confusing, but that will probalby change once you add a theme onto the forums.

Other than that, not much you can really F up with vBulletin. Users shouldn't really get any errors, unless you modified the code. Seems like users will normally run into setting probelms at the most. Nice job never the less. I'm sure I can find more input, but I just came home.

I think the new site has great potential.


It feels way faster and more solid than the old one ever did. Gonna take some getting used to though.

You can just scroll down shake, unless there is a cut off point.

It refreshes after a second and sends you back to the bottom of the chat. So a log or undock option would be nice so that you could catch up on what has been said with out it refreshing on you.

This is not really a con, but i would like it if the "LKM818" or the image on the top of the screen would send you to home page if you clicked on it. that would be really nice.

is it just me, or is the icon for both "hot thread with new post" and "hot thread with no new post" the same exact icon?

So far, I am enjoying the site. I posted this question under DH's "Welcome" thread, but I wanna play a game! Any chance of undocking the chat window?

I like the dark background. Cool. However, I don't see the links text easily. Only the white text jumps out at me. Sorta have to focus on the blue (?) colored text to read it.

I agree with Puppy on both counts.

I find I have to log back in often. Not having to do that constantly would be nice.

The chat box refreshing , hence cannot follow the full conversations posted previously so un docked would be nice.

I like the lay out and have been reading the FAQ to get the idea of the new site. Personal pages, friends list, options for layout etc...all good.

When you log in, there should be a little button that you can check that says Remember Me. That will keep you logged in indefinitely.

Thank you BB, trying to read everything on the new site and missed the obvious. It'll make it much easier now.

Con- People complianing or asking questions about things that are not actually problems and have already been asked then answered. People need to play around with all the features before even thinking about asking/stating something.

Pro- Everything about this new setup DH spent time and effort on is +1 awesomeness to the core.
