    Yeah, I'd like postcounts back also. They give people an idea of who are the regulars and who are the irregulars, and you don't get so many people assuming that you're a total noob if you're saying something they disagree with.

    edit: love the AJAX stuff btw.

    Eh? Well i've been using the Retro Dark theme with left ads for the past 2 years or so... And by the looks of things Bit is still on Vb so I don't see why it should be too hard to re-enable... :thumb:

    Edit, oooo in-thread-editing is v.Nice :thumb:

    I would realy like the post count back, I worked hard for my 300+ posts. :( Over all I like it, it's a bit early to say for sure but im sure it will grow on me more.

    I like it. I feel right at home since it looks a lot like the nokytech forums (french watercooling site/forum)


    oh and no need for the post count, this way I look cooler because I dont have a 100 posts in 5 years and a half :D

    The general concensus seems to be that people would like to see postcount and the reasons given so far have all been very valid. I've asked Jamie to turn them back on... they should be back soon. :)

    I like the idea of cleaning up, and making it a lot neat(er)...I guess the main drive behind this is to make it easier to browse with less backwards/forwards action going on...I would like to know if this change will actually reduce server load (maybe in terms of total traffic) or increase as now the search function is obviously going to need to be used a lot more...

    ...the only reason, why I would say now, after not using it much (yet), which I guess you could say is unfair on all of you putting work into this, that I prefer the old system is that now I dont think I will have the time to browse the so called "smaller" forums that I used to, even if I did not post...for example if Im bored, I would go through a couple of pages of serious discussion just to see what people are arguing about...now this will take a lot longer, so I might just end up not reading it anymore :( ...anyone else concerned about this??

    also, do you not think seperating the US and UK FS forums was a good idea, and something that might have been kept on the new system aswell??+

    just wanted to say kudos for making it look damn hawt though :D

    I think most of the little gripes are along the lines of 'hey! they changed it!'

    Like the wide reply box BTW.

    (Postcount in 3...2...YAY!)

    I'm not sure about the new layout. Will give it a while before deciding.

    One instant thing though - the Scan offer sounded fantastic, but when I clicked on the link it said I wasnt eligible? Exactly how many posts do you need before you qualify? (Apologies if this has already been dealt with, but the thread's getting a bit long to read through all of it.)

    When browsing the forum from the "new posts" link you get an error page if you click one of the image tags on the left.

    Edit, they are no longer hyperlinked.

    Check down in the Scan forum - I believe it's a very reasonable 10 constructive posts in the last 30 days (and afaik it rolls on, meaning that you have to be a regular posting member of the community to qualify). I think that's a very reasonable thing to ask, especially considering how much it's costing Scan to offer free delivery to the bit-tech community. :)
