hello and welcome to the new Kingman forum. we thought it was about time for changes and to give it a new look. we are using new software, so we are learning how to do things.

look things over and give it some time. then decide and vote in our poll.

question, how do you like the new board?

Liked the old one better and this will take some getting used to, especially because we don't have nearly as many members right now.

I love this software, but there are a few things that could be added. I think a major improvement would be adding a Sidebar mode so that it looks identical to the old forums. Just like PBN has their sidebar mode which is what I use, it's alot better IMO.

I like the New Post option though. It's much nicer than scrolling down the page. I like the idea of the side bar though...

I like it. Has a lot of potential. Just gotta find that Ban button.

I like it, but is there any way of copying over feedback and old stickies? That was it would be pretty easy to get some questions answered for the newer people, and I won't have to remember who all I have dealt with. :/

bleh... i liked the old one, i hate vbulletin, shockerowners uses it. it needs "who's online", my old pms (i had one durring the glitch and i never got to read it) and it would have been nice to keep our profiles.

ok it is alittle better, but it still seems slightly slower and the organization is harder to get used to.

I like it. It looks like the same format or w/e as PBN and as claus said a bit hard to get used to.

Also, if you want to see your PM's like the old forum sort of, it will provide a pop-up window.

And, if you want it to looks even closer to the old forums set the Display Mode down at the bottom to "Liquid".

right now I like the old one better. It might just take some getting use to and there are some changes that need to be made.

You can set it to do that too, just go check the options. You can even set it to view all or one post at a time on a single page.

I def like the sidebar, and the orange and black from the old board. But im sure if we give it time, claus will stop complaining and we'll all get used to this one.

i dont really like this software. we should have gone with PHPbb, although thats probably not the most secure.

i also miss my 02 reg date :dodgy:

RIP old KUSA!

for the mods: is there a new penthouse too?

I like the new setup, but it does need a little fine tuning. Just like a new car... you gotta drive it for a while before the seat starts to conform to your butt. But once we get it broke it, Im sure it will be a lovely new home for everyone.

A lot of the complaints I've heard people make (mostly little things) can be adjusted in their own personal user settings. The complaints should die down once people take the time to set things up the way they want. With a little attention from the "powers that be" for the behind the scenes stuff, and a little time spent getting used to the new software on the user end, it should do quite well.

Nice job guys.

it is for us mods to know and for you to find out if you must know.

I'm still finding new things here. I liked the old one, but this one will be great when I find stuff. Eh, I'm just opposed to change...

In other words, it is a good thing you don't know what they're talking about in there. :) Cuz if they're talking about you...:banned:
