How do you like the new forum?

I waited almost 2 years to upgrade our forum. Today its now current. There are some things that may not migrate over but I'm working on it.

How do you like it so far? Any suggestions?

I guess the auto ticked 30 days extension is a good compromise, but I can see the spam ad workload benefit. P Don't worry, we can live with it.

Yes, when I globally enable it, the option to disable two-step verification is in the everyone's security settings, however, until I can set the default to off for everyone before hand, I won't turn that on again lol! Its been deactivated for now.

Two step setup fine for me!. Thanks for adding this!. It’s what all sites need!!.

I use it here, and prefer to have it on. I take every precaution to protect the security of us here. Two-step verification is a very good thing!

Being said, glad you like it Tony. I'll try and find a way to set it to "off" as the default.

Generally Speaking

Change is always awkward at first.
Every member should take the time to go through their preferences, especially older members that haven’t done that in years.
Two step verification is a security measure. It’s an essential step for anyone with moderator or administration level access but it’s also just good protection for protecting yours, mine, our content as a community.

Members should become more familiar with how their profile and content integrates into this “community”.

Your content and how you share it in our community is biggest improvement here.

I think it looks very nice. XenForo has a nice interface and good configuration options, it seems. I would definitely get a "dark" theme option going since it's very popular these days. I have a hard time looking at a bright white screen since I'm so used to using it.

Great idea, thanks for the suggestion. Can you post a link to an example of what you would like to have. Thanks!

Wow! It really looks great, Chris.

If people aren't aware of what this is, it basically makes your white windows dark/light gray and the text white. Easy on the eyes and looks very sharp. You can turn it on in your preferences or at the bottom of the site's main window.

That's a nice bump. I wonder how long it will last. Often you get an initial transient followed by a long tapering tail. Perhaps that will bring in a few new regular users.

I think the thread counts will last but I don’t think the post counts will change. We’ve been in the mid 20,000 threads a day for years.
I’m not sure what will inspire new users anymore. Hopefully the simpler forum layout is inspiring.
Any suggestions are welcome.
