    WTF.. another neat thing gone in VB4 then..
    fucking changes "for better", they either replace it with something worse, or just take it all away
    talking about VB4, not skins

    opening single posts in new tabs was awesome!

    This makes imagehost grabber worthless unless you wanna download the whole page.

    So, anyone know of any bulk downloader that can get around this?

    When I click on a subscribed link from email, it completely loads the first page of the thread, and then eventually loads the last page of the thread, but at the top, not at newest message. Very annoying. Can't be good for your bandwidth, either.

    Edit: After replying to a thread, it also takes you to the top of the page, instead of to your message. (FF 3.6.10)

    Very clean looking layout. Was definitely time for a change appearance wise. I notice the "Top" feature doesn't work to go back all the way to the top.

    I'm searching through the web for a solution to the "click post thread opens" problem since I use the imagehost grabber myself =)
    Hopefully I will find a solution for that.

    It works, but have to roll the mouse over it. That's a small - hopefully - soon-to-be-fixed issue.

    Damn, Bulk Image Downloader no longer works (or it's Firefox extension doesn't anyway - grabs the whole page instead of a single link). This is supreme bullshit. Be damned if I'm going back to opening 50+ tabs, saving each image individually, and pretty much crashing my firefox in the process. Hmm...

    @ Jonz: You can't even open those 50 tabs with the new setup They will all be the same page...

    Very annoying... Hope either we can get a forum modification going or BID patch to fix it.

    What I meant with the tabs thing was opening each image into it's own tab, so that it would display at full size, then right click and saving it... That's what I used to do before discovering such a program like BID. Was a nightmare at times... I have noticed now though that there are "Previous Image" and "Next Image" buttons above the image when you view them like that now. Is that new with this VB4 update? or maybe I've just never noticed it before. Anyway, BID still sorta works, but only by copying the URL of the page into BID, and letting it retrieve everything from that page. It sorts all the links in post order on the webpage, so that isn't too bad - just select the batch of links you're after and you're good to go. Still a pain though, and much more work than before. Hopefully a fix isn't far away.

    1. Go to first new post -function
    2. Opening single posts in seperate window
    3. Usernames on larger font in threads (besides this, I love the new look)
    4. Returning to the end of a thread after posting

    I'd say these are the main four things to get fixed. Or did I forget something?

    # 2 - don't think that can b fixed. It's just VB4 feature...
    # 3 - we'll leave "cosmetic" details like that one for end. Atm we have some more important things 2 take care of 1st
    # 4 - right now i can only suggest u to change forum display to new posts 1st. From personal experience it's way better than old posts 1st (took some time 2 get use to it tho tbh ). That way u can prevent unnecessary and annoying scrolling all the time.
    Try this Use the SEARCH BUTTON and read Welcome & Forum Guidelines before posting and fonz'on

    Too bad. This makes it a lot more difficult to save pics if you don't want all pics from a certain page.

    I know, the "cosmetic" details will be fixed after the rest works but I just mentioned this would be cool to adjust at some point.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a shoot.

    These links appear when you upload to our imagehost directly, instead of having the stuff reupped. By the way, you can use the handy gallery feature in "BID and friends".

    I don´t understand the Icon Legend. Why we have "Contains unread posts" and "Hot thread with unread posts"? What is a "hot thread"?

    I don´t like the new colours. Pale colours are bad to read. And the background is not dark enough. My eyes.... i need sunglasses. Really!

    Sorry for my english.

    They are the same colours we had before

    Nothing is less/more pale than before...

    Who here remembers the old pink & blue setup?
