so shiny

The lives of two self-proclaimed geek/gamer chicks as told by themselves. Sadly, we don't have to exaggerate much from reality.

When the icon is blue there are new posts. Grey means you've read them. A little star in the icon means you've posted in that thread. If the lines are scrolling that means the thread is popular (several recent posts). The i means it's an announcement (i for info XD) and the exclamation point means it's a sticky post (stays at top).

Looks like ComicGenesis upgraded to phpbb3. Overall I think 3 is snazzy, but it does take a little getting used to as half the menus and things are moved around. I've been using 3 on our FFXI linkshell board for a while now so I think I've got the hang of everything. (of course I also decked it out with a linkshell theme... ^_^)

Best feature of 3? If you click the little square next to an unread thread icon (when the icon is blue) it will take you directly to the last post you read in the thread. So if there's a post with 7 pages of stuff and you've read all but the very last post, it will take you straight there. You won't have to scroll through each page to find out where you left off.

Least favorite thing? I seem to click "save" to draft instead of "submit" a lot when posting. Whoopsie.

On the old board I always clicked Preview instead of Submit. ALWAYS.

It is very nice I noticed the save button and thought I'm am so going to hit that forever, but it being in a different font makes it easier to see.

It'll take a little getting used to but I like it.

I'm already having trouble remembering the old look.

I think it's neat that my Samurai Champloo avatar re-appeared. I missed it.

Huh? What can I say....since I'm new to this all I can say is that, this is differentially softer on the eyes than the old board. Personally I like it better than the old one.
