    What's this about not being able to see post counts? I can still see them? Confused!!

    Also, what are the criteria for free Scan delivery? I consider myself a long-term contributor to the forums, and have done so consistently for four years (albeit not every day) and am told I am not eligible, which seems a bit unreasonable.

    d'oh - that'll teach me to refresh my browser and read the more recent posts :wallbash:

    Incidentally, if anyone cares, Scan's free delivery now loves me.

    Title above avatar, post count back, multiple quotes made easy = WIN.
    I also look forward to the support area, putting the members in contact with manufacturs and retailers, ie scan, whom ive always done a lot of business with, now with free postage, wikked :D
    Getting used to the tagging filter system, I like the way things are moving on the forum.

    Keep up the good work Bit-Tech :thumb:

    Yup, I'm a old school member and that old logo brings back fond memories. I still have a old school logo case badge on my home PC.

    Not so hot with JS turned off.. filters dont work.

    Looks pretty, but harder to use.

    Isnt that just going to encourage people to spam-post the forum for an hour before they want to order something? To be perfectly honest it might with me!

    Edit - I think I misread your post originally - I read it as 30 posts per 10 days. Shows how little I've been on here lately I suppose! But 10 posts a month seems fair, definately. My bad!

    The moderators will continue to remove posts that are determined to be nothing more than spam and also Scan has the right to decline the free delivery offer if they feel a particular member is abusing it (the really obvious stuff). :thumb:

    We think that 10 posts in 30 days is fairly reasonable and hopefully it should get some more members being active in the forum too. :)

    On the plus side, I have already taken advantage of the Scan free delivery.

    On the downside, I'm not sure how much longer I can stand the site.

    The filter images are giving me a headache. I'm not sure what it is, but I can barely read the text because the long column of images is 'distracting' me. I've had to turn images off in Firefox in order view the forums. But then I had to turn them back on again to make this post.

    Those images are going to have to go... or at least be an editable option. Plus they should really be towards the RHS out of the way.

    I can also see myself saving bookmarks of filtered pages rather than going through the forums themselves. For every 'filter' I'm interested in, there is another that I'm not, so it's annoying to have to wade through all the crap. If there was some sort of persistent filtering, it would be more acceptable, but I'm afraid this current interface is a bodge.

    I'm sure there will be some new features that are useful, but as yet I cant get over the obvious flaws.

    Multi-quote is definately going to be tough competition for sliced bread as the most useful invention ever.

    Good things:
    Looks nicer
    Simpler
    Multi-quote, about time
    Cool quick reply
    Page seems a bit wider

    Bad things:
    Annoying tagging images, hard to read
    No seperation of topics, harder to find certain threads
    Feels a bit slower
    Usually I'd browse around each of the forums for a bit, now I'm already bored because I've done that now.

    So, some good things and some bad. I sorely hope you'll continue improving though.

    I like the idea of the tags, but the images are too obtrusive and I find them distracting.

    If there were an option to have them plain and/or colour coded like the main site section headings I'd be a happy chapie.

    EDIT!!! just seen from CK's post.... IMAGES IN SIGS!!!! WHA!

    I like the fact that news, article, column discussions are in one forum now as I use to hate having a tab open on FF just to keep up with 1 article or column discussion.

    I think most here would agree that the ability to check multiple filters is an absolute must and will make the filter system far more palatable?

    I agree the thread icons (news etc) aren't particularly nice to look at and are a bit distracting. Also they're not all that legible either. Would be nice if having them be just simple text was an option in the control panel. That would solve the legibility and distraction issues mentioned above in one fell swoop.

    Overall I like the changes in principle but the actual implementation could do with a bit of tweaking.

    Keep up the good work!

    maybe an option for those that don't like the multitude of coloured images is for us to offer another theme with plain black and white (or <insert favourite colour here>) tags?

    I'm throwing the boat out since I'm curious as to what you think we can do to "improve" the tags for those that don't like the coloured versions. :)

    EDIT: another option could be plain text... mebbe?

    I think images in sigs is a mistake (I sure hope it is)

    NINJA EDIT: yes it is - it's on by default and we didn't disable it.
