I don't usualy post polls, not even in PhP forums, but instead of starting two different threads, a poll and a "bug" report, i decided to make it all on the same thread.

Well, there are problems. It's a nice place and all but these things need correction ASAP. There is not a way to jump to a specific page in a multipage thread from the main forum. This is a must IMO. Also the smileys are nowhere near as good. Not critical, but still a sore point for me.

There does seem to be progress though, I noticed that there are now not subtitles on the threads in the main hall. Very good.

I also recieved this the message that you posted Resev, but a retry got me through.

It depends if the language filter is activated or not.
I for one, am not interested in trying to find out, and nevertheless, able or not to do so, it goes agains't the Terms of Use, so i sugest that you go around the filter with some other prerrogative expression, if you feel the need to.


Don't worry, i'm not happy either, i'm just trying to do some good and report the flaws.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by resev:
Be honest, and only answer after you have checked everything or almost everything.

You might as well post specific problems or odditys you found, as Tully's thread ins't helping anyone, and the FAQ thread he started, not only is about the previous asp version of the forum (not ubb-x), as it also does not allow replys either (ridiculous considering the importance of the topic).


What i have found (and most if not all have found as well):

1. When reading a thread, everything is backwards, and updated to the last page.
Among other things, that means that users that see a reply with a quote at the beguining of a thread (or the page), will actualy be seeing an answer to something they haven't yet seen, wich will force them to search downward, and likely even to be forced to change a page, the post of the quoted user, to see if he himself was answering to someone before, and while doing this you will get seriously desorientated, that much is guaranteed.
One other thing is that, the original post that started the thread will allways be the first one on every page, regardless of how many pages that specific thread might have, that doens't help much to the feeling of beeing completely lost inside of the thread itself.

2. While inside a thread, you either reply with a quote, hitting the button right next to a post (any post), or you will be forced to go all the way down to hit the simple reply button.
So, i have to read upward, but i have to go all the way down to reply????
Doesn't sound like a very inteligent method, does it?

3. The language filter doesn't appear to be working.
Not that i am concerned, nor am i willing to investigate further, by typing the typical four letters words and such, but at least the word "bugger" is alowed, and according to the asp forum filter, this word was supposed to be a major no no.
I find this more an oddity than a problem, as the decent people in this forum are not likely to see themselfs forced to use such words to express what roams in they'r soul's, while typing aomething in this forum.

4. There is no PM (Personal Message) box.
Without a PM feature, there is no possibility to send a message to a user that might be offline to see later.
This is defenetly something that not only should, but must be fixed.

5. A user is not allowed to invite a Admin or a Moderator for a private topic (new feature).
What are we? Nazis? The enemy?
This is a severe lack of respect for the forum user and UBI products consumer.
The only way to contact these persons is directly trough a thread, wich as you can imagine, is not very usefull, if anything, the thread will quickly drop down in the list, likely to even go out of the page, without us even knowing if the person to whom the thread is directed to as noticed it, or even if he gives a damn about the topic of the thread.
This would be of little concern if at least we had a PM feature, wich we don't.

6. The emoticons are fugly.
This is not a problem, just a rant of mine. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

*update*
7. It seems that we are not rid of the errors and timeouts with the change of forum program.
I just got a few minutes ago a 500 Internal Server Error.
Check the image in the url:
Its a big image and i don't want to clutter the thread, but its a small format size .gif (87kb):
http://server5.uploadit.org/files2/191203-ubbx-error-01.gif

*update*
8. A new error ocurred, and this time i was only opening a thread, in fact, the error was reported while inside the thread itself.
Thats two error in a row (check point 7.) with little time beetween them, and that is very unusual in any forum, even in the old asp based forum.
Check the image url (.gif 196kb):
http://server5.uploadit.org/files2/191203-ubbx-error-02.gif



Of course there is several positive points in this new forum, but the point of this thread is to report what is wrong so something can be done.

There is more to say and report, but i don't recall it rght away, but this will allways be the first post either way, so i might as well edit and update it.

Bring on your findings (positive and negative), they will surely be usefull.

Oh, and keep it bumped, unless the thread is made a sticky.

Sorry Resev, the FAQ thread is a link to the GAME FAQ and wasn't intended to help with the forum software. When I posted this was made clear by the thread subtitle, but that feature has since been switched off. I've edited the title to make that clear now. I posted it there as the old link we used to have at the top of the Lithium boards hasn't been put up here yet.

1. will hopefully be addressed. I don't believe the setting was intended to be left that way. It's a very simple change to make, but I think everyone went home for the night before they got to it. I've alerted admin, we'll have to wait 'til they get back to work to see if it get's fixed or not.

2. There's a "Reply" button at the top as well.

3. The filter is customisable. The default list wont be identical, but I'm sure it will be edited by administration as required http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

4. Use "Private Topic". You can invite someone to a private topic by clicking their name next to one of their existing posts and selecting "Invite to private topic", or if they're already in your contact list you can do it from "My Space/Private Topics" or from the "New" button at the top of the forum. There's also a "Start Private Topic with this person" link at the bottom of each member's public profile page.

5. I'll look into that. You can use the "Report this post" button at the bottom of each post in the meantime. That puts the post in the moderation queue for attention.

Edit: You can use Private Topics to contact Admins & Moderators, but the intended recipient for any private topic must be added to your contact list before trying to start the topic.

6. I like 'em http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

7. & 8. Other forums are being migrated as well, which means the database is being regularly subjected to major disruptions. Even the most stable of applications doesn't like being kicked in the guts several times a day. It should settle down as all the migration program draws to a close.

That is partialy answered in point 1. .
It seems that the users will not, for the time beeing, be able to choose to format of the thread themselfs.

Its likely that only admins, or the ones responsible for forum maintanance, will be able to make the change, but that change will allways affect all users.

You can't change the people that post here, and neither can UBI reprimend them for they'r behaviour.
Alltough Oleg once in a while still posts here, he pretty much vanished when the troublemakers started showing up, and i don't blame him for that either, i would do the same.



As for the problem you are experiencing, i can't add it to the list until at least one other person reports the same problem.
In the meantime, i suggest you give a try to the Avant Browser.
Its uses the IE core, but its extremely fast, actualy, i tryed Opera and Mozzila, and i found the Avant Browser faster.

Give it a try, you might like it.

Well, I kept receiving messages about 'not having answered the email' that was sent to me. I followed the instructions on the FAQ and managed to receive said letter, but still could not get in - even after I clicked on the link in the letter and received the message that I 'have been verified.' The only away around it was to create a new profile.

[URL=http://mysite.verizon.net/res0adci/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/sigsmall.jpg <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>]


I can find a few possible explanations for that.

1. Its a program (ubbx) flaw.
2. It was a mistake made during forum setup
3. It works based on the possible caracters that a user is able to input for his name, not nessesarily the ones displayed even if short by most users.

I would say 3 should be the closest answer.

In phpBB forums, that is a factor, but one that only works when a user with a very large name is present in a thread.
The same goes for the avatars, in wich some boards allow the use of images up to 200x200, so, in a phpBB forum, if most users have a small avatar, the maximum size will be dictated by the user with the largest avatar.

That happens a lot when that nimrod Preddy, and his 200 pixels wide avatar, appears in a thread on CWOS. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif


BTW, you have to use the tags " ", in order for your sig image to appear.

The result of using such tags:
http://mysite.verizon.net/res0adci/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/sigsmall.jpg

BTW, you sig does not comply with signature guidelines.
You are presently with 400x275, the limit is 400x200.

The quick links may still be implemented, its just a matter of the will of the Admin, or so i understood.

The separated window has its advantages.
You can see the thread itself while typing, and if you haven't made a quote this might be very usefull.
Also, once you have submited you message, the thread is automaticaly refreshed, hence your post or any other that might have popped up before your's will be imediatly shown, without you missing it, and without having to reenter the thread to be aware of them.

You can use your orignal name 'waterinthefuel'.
I know the problem you're having. A lot of us had it too.
You're told that you have validated your email address, yet when you try to post it says you haven't, but you know you have http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
After logging in with your original name that you have used before, go to 'my space' and then your profile page.
There it will say you haven't validated you email address even though you have.
Go to the bottom of this page and hit submit.
Make sure you have the zip code entered (make it up if need be) and all other relevent fields.
When you get a successful message saying you have updated your profile you will be able to post and the email validation message will vanish from the top of the profile page.
You must get a successfull confirmation from this profile page though.
It works, trust me. I spent about 2-3 hours trying to figure it out.

The new forum runs like greased **** off a hot shovel. Thats a big plus as nothing is worse on a forum to have a post you spent ages, writing to suddenly get errored to death on hitting post.

The options feel more intuitive and easier to use with a wider range of functions.

Overall the new forum is a good and it has been a long time coming.

Hi,

How about forcing a limit on sigs for us poor 56k users?

Also, is there a way of allowing images to be blocked, at the user's discretion, if they are over a certain size? I'm thinking that images that are over the max size will not be shown unless the user specifically chooses to allow the download of that image...

Regards,

Yes. this is what I have been waiting for. I mentioned this software over a year ago. I am glad they finally found it. (I am accustomed to it from other forums over the years.)

The really good thing about this will be the seach functions, if set up well.

Now, if they have a good server on a fat pipe, we will be in forum heaven.

Thank you, Ubi, for finally upgrading.

nearmiss, give them some learning time. It takes some work to learn the different features and set them up. As long as they have plenty of archive space and, again, a good server and pipe, you will learn to love this software.

The only thing I have never liked is the rating feature. 'I' would like them to just disable that. It is easily defeatable, and sure enough, there will be people making their posts look more important than they really are. The views, but mostly the replies, will allow an individual to determine if the thread is really important, or not.

Well, I am not convinced this "new" format is the that great. Sure there are some plus's but there is negatives as well - the jury is out for now.

Oh, and I have sometimes had the same problem accessing the forums as before.

A question for Ubi. Did you ever archive any of the old GD forum? There was over 500 pages of threads. Other forums with lots of traffic usually do an archive at least once a year.

Yes Mike I know that. What I was asking was when we had the old format, did Ubi ever do any archiving. That could have been some of the problem with accessing the forums - just too much to load. Also notice that the accessing problem was getting worse as time went on.

Good to see that most of the pressing issues are beeing adreesed quickly.

Looks like i haven't wasted my time by only snoozing for two hours (i'm seriously wasted, gotta sleep a bit more before i go work again in a few hours)

One thing that would be very usefull, is to have auto complete quick buttons for the BB codes avaiable.
Its not very practical having to memorize BB tags.
A sound example of this is how the phpBB forums work, with several quick code buttons on the reply screen.

In fact, i think i'l post another topic number on this subject, while updating for the fixed flaws.

All the UBI forums are beeing updated at the same time, and since they are all in the same network, its likely that while changes are beeing made, the performance of the new program cannot yet be seen.

Give it a week or so at most, it should be faster by then.

HTML in here, as in phpBB forums, is suggested to be left disabled for security reasons.

In phpBB forums, it is a known fact that leaving it enabled may cause a major security breach, leaving a backdoor wide open to anyone with the skills to take advantage of it.
Its possible the same thing can happen to ubb forums, hence, the fact that it is disabled.

Besides, even if they allowed HTML, they would not allow scripting, therefore it would be useless to you to try and inbed the flash animation into your signature.
I should know, i used to have a 3000 caracters (maximum allowed) scripted sig, back in the days of the asp forum when it was still allowed.

Oh what a relief that the chronolgy is corrected. Seems like old times almost.

And indeed I'd be surprised to see the HTML or scripts appearing here. I recall a thread about the TrackIR software, some time back. IIRC, a user was annoyed that others were sharing the older version of the driver, and someone had used HTML or scripts to make the actual thread load a redirect to the NatrualPoint website. Within 48 hours after the mods found out, the scripts vanished. I always wondered if that thread was the cause.

Anyway, things are looking up. I feel like the majority of these questions are going to be best answered if a mod or Thunak comes by and fills us in. Someone knows whether some of these issues (post preview, jump to page from front, etc.) are even POSSIBLE on this software, and some just may not be.

LOL WTF??? Security?? As you said, even if it's ON, scripts won't load. So where else could security problems come from??? Only tag that comes to my mind is iframe which could open up another site containing a script. That's it! If script can be disabled, iframe can be, too.
There is such a bigger choice of colors, formats, fonts, sizes, HRs, CSS stylesheets etc etc. UBB can't even underline a text!!! This is just silly. On the old board I had a sig containing personal colors, a bar, scripted counters for some special dates which is all script stuff. That's already much. But other than that the sig is sourrounded by a glow and I've got a clickable (link) sig pic. At last a font tag that hides "edited by ..." stuff http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. All that's gone, except the pic. Even when linkin' it ( {URL=asdfg} {IMG=qwert} {/URL} or something like that with [] ), there's an ugly border around it which I could remove with HTML.

BTW this forum is even slower than the old one.... I seriously would have taken a recent version of Lithium - it also features so much stuff like polls, sticky etc pp. Would have been easier to update, then put it on a new server.

You are only considering the users that post here, but you are not thinking in this particular software at all.
A security breach is not nessesarily an access trough regular coding, but also the "gateways" that are left open for exploit trough specific coding.
It would be a colossal amount of works to decript what is secure and allow, and what is in danger and limit access! Instead, all they had to do is click a button, and poof, problem solved, alltough regular HTML is also prohibited. [/quote]

Actualy, i can show you a iframe script that, if a person don't know what is happening, he will wet his pants big time, and at the same time, if he doens't touch anything, he will be safe, but if he starts thinkering with what he sees, he may be in deep problem, as it will literaly open his computer to the world to see.

Just for $hit and giggles, try posting this on a HTML enabled forum, but warn them about what i said above:

&lt;iframe src="C:\"width="800" height="600" &gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;/iframe &gt;

I'm believe you should know this code allready, but i posted it regardless.
I played several pranks with this on the old forum.
You know that many people won't be very pleased, don't you?

BTW, iframes are scripts, regardless of how simple the code may be.

I'm well aware of you sig in the old forum, that was pretty much the only scripting that was allowed.
Now think about the other users (in wich i was included), that took the advantage of scripting to make very large image arrays.
Me, i had 12 images all setup in an array, it was painfull for the 56kers.
And also the ones who would change they'rs names (i did that as well), install a outsider large avatar, and many other insensitive things.
its defenetly a big no no to get back to those days.

Ubi archived the old forums several times. It made squat difference.

Good to see that most of the pressing issues are beeing adreesed quickly.

Looks like i haven't wasted my time by only snoozing for two hours (i'm seriously wasted, gotta sleep a bit more before i go work again in a few hours)

One thing that would be very usefull, is to have auto complete quick buttons for the BB codes avaiable.
Its not very practical having to memorize BB tags.
A sound example of this is how the phpBB forums work, with several quick code buttons on the reply screen.

In fact, i think i'l post another topic number on this subject, while updating for the fixed flaws.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

If you use "Reply" instead of "Quick Reply", the buttons along the top of the reply box are shortcuts for the common UBB tags. ATM the text colour settings are dodgy, but there is a request to fix them. In the meantime if you're using IExplorer and have tooltips enabled, hovering the mouse over the buttons will show what each one is for.

Oh what a relief that the chronolgy is corrected. Seems like old times almost.

And indeed I'd be surprised to see the HTML or scripts appearing here. I recall a thread about the TrackIR software, some time back. IIRC, a user was annoyed that others were sharing the older version of the driver, and someone had used HTML or scripts to make the actual thread load a redirect to the NatrualPoint website. Within 48 hours after the mods found out, the scripts vanished. I always wondered if that thread was the cause.
<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

While it certainly didn't help matters, there was far more serious tomfoolery on other game forums among the Ubi stable that actually triggered that decision by admin. It's so long ago now that I don't recall the actual infraction, but it was a biggy.

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I admin a small board on this software and while I'm no guru, to my knowledge neither post preview or jump to page are available options. I'm pretty sure on the preview option but I may have missed something on the jump to page issue.

Thanks for the replies Tully. On the jump to page issue, its getting easier with each visit to this thread. (I click to first page, then click to the page I left off on, and continue.) Maybe by the time we have our first 15 page debate, we'll all be old pro's at it. http://www.geocities.com/adlabs6/B/bin/1/wink.gif

And might I add.. another thing which I greatly enjoy is the Quick Reply window, which I can drag around inside the main window. Amazingly easy to make responses point by point, while referring to the original posts directly.

FINALLY...
I finally got the stupid forum to accept my email notification so I could post :P

Bout time they decided to change to something decent forumwise. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Im glad they chose InfoPop. Im a moderator on a board that beta tests stuff for InfoPop, and we have worked with them to get things working smoothly with this version (and other versions of the board software). I'm sure many of the problems people are experiencing have to do with the migration to the new board software and not the software itself.

The board I moderate on, migrated a bit over a week ago and it really took about a week for things to settle down. Most of that had to do with migrating and indexing over 6 million posts from our old board. (we are a worst case test scenario for them http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ) So if it works there it will work better here!

UBBx is highly configurable, and many of the things people would like is possible, but it all depends on what the administrators (note: NOT MODERATORS) want to configure the boards for. Saying that....there are three things I *wish* and *hope* they configure.....

1) The ability to preview posts
2) The ability to NOT DISPLAY OTHER PEOPLE'S SIGNATURES
3) Make the color of moderator's names a different color so I can skip to the important posts in a thread http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm not sure if this can be changed, but I'd prefer to see the Topic area longer and the Last Post area narrower. (I can't get the whole topic on one line)
It is more important to me to be able to see the topic and get more of them on the screen at one time.
Not sure I really care about the rating either. At least not a whole lot, but I guess some would find it useful. Number of views? I fail to see the purpose if the trade off is a narrower Topic column.

Still, I like this better than the old one in most other ways. It seems a lot faster.

It would be nice to be able to enter a certain thread page without entering the first page first. In the old forum, all thread pages were listed behind the topic. That was muc better.
Also the post count per page is different... I wonder if it can be changed to 30. That's (http://forumsbb.ubi.com/messages/overview.asp?name=FB_Hanger&page=1) why I (and many others) want this http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. Biiiig thread, hehe.

I really like us now being able to make our own avatars http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif (what's the limit on those?)...

I think the forum is as good as it can be for a company who seems to spend more time working on other games than the one that appears to be the most popular. IL2/FB is what we all want to play so how about putting the patches out on time and adding a few more planes each time.... by the way, why is such a big deal made about the Russian pilots in the war? From everything I've read they were pretty bad pilots and couldn't hit the broad side of a barn....just my disgruntled commentary.

Have you ever considered changing the CSS file so that links don't get underlined, at least on the survey pages?

IMO the underscores on the thread survey pages impair readability. The old forum was better in that respect.

There is no need to underline the Hyperlinks here. They can already be recognized by the different colors. The Javascript links at the top of the threads aren't underlined, either.

---

We have signature limitations. Can we have avatar limitations, too? I see the first animated gif with 40 KB + already.

Aardvark892, you can also use the collapse forums function, it ins't much of a bother once you get used to it, and the forum list will become much smaller, and you get to the IL-2 list much faster.

Go to the forum lists, and at the left side of the forums main page, you will see an icon.
Click the icon and all the forums related to that game will collapsed, only leaving the main page name, so you can still get to them if you wish to visit another forum.

After collapsing the forums you don't need, go to Tools, and choose the Save My Preferences option.

Now each time you get to the forums list, they will be left just the way you saw them last time, and it will be easier and faster to get inside the IL-2 forums again.

A few things ild like to see, the quick link bar, i know i can get their in 2 clicks but i want one click. I would like to see rating coloum removed it is a total waste of space no one pays any attention to ratings only topics. would like to see the second coloum from the left gone cluters screen too much, and can the topic stater and evertyhing to the right of it be moved over and greater room be given to the topic as its the most important part.

Yes, less clicks is always better. -- I mentioned about the 'Ratings' earlier but I want to clarify.

It is totally useless. It wastes too much space. If just one post has 5 checks, it sets the space for the entire page.

Also, anyone with half a brain can figure out how to vote multiple times. Multiple people, voting multiple times, so sorry, just useless. Please, get rid of it.

Space has been a major concern by people. When I came into this thread, this is what the 'Last Post' cell looked like...

How about...
12-20-03 08:08PM
(You don't really need a space betwen the time and AM/PM, either, just to shorten it up a little more.) What about the 'day indicator'? Sure, it's neat and all, but, hey, if a person cannot figure out what day of the week it is, oh, well. :P

Compared together:
Sat December 20 2003 08:08 PM
12-20-03 08:08PM
Minus the 'Ratings' cell. Wow, lots more space. For space, there is not really too much more that can be done, but those two things 'fixed' would be a tremendous help.

-

Also, the Reply screen. The text box can expand when the window is maximized. That needs to be implemented. -- Also, put a lot of text in it, and click both ways on the arrows and try and scroll, etc. You will see it is weird.

I have not been on much, so, I can't think of anything else. (Text colors being same as backgorund was mentioned.) I still like the boards, though. :P

EDIT: Is there a time limit set on editing posts?

Not exactly a time limit, its more of a time out.

When you write a very long post, the period of inactivity will escalate up to 30 minutes, in wich beyond this you will get a timeout.

It doesn't mean that you won't be able to post, only that you won't be able to auto refresh the thread (the flaw is because of this feature i believe), and you will have to either refresh manualy, or reenter the thread.

resev, you are thinking about something else.

Read my question again.

Apparently, there is not a time limit to edit posts. Look at my last post above. The last edit.

Most boards using this software will have a time limit in regards to editing a post. For some reason it seems to always be 30 minutes. Must be the 'default' setting. Obviously, here, they set it like the old boards. You can come back and edit at anytime.

Do you see what I meant now? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

EDIT: BTW, 'I' think a time limit would be good. 60 minutes would be plenty.

Heh, resev. It is OK to misunderstand.

Your words...


"Not exactly a time limit, its more of a time out.

(BOLD emphasis mine.)
You are talking about writing a long post and taking so long you get a time out.

I am talking about, there is either a 'TIME LIMIT' to EDIT, or not. Again, obviously, there is no time limit. Again, I think 60 minutes would be good.

SPECIFICALLY: You post at 6:00PM, after 7:00PM you cannot edit. Now you get it? (Please, do not say again that is what you wrote. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif )

That would suck. It was 30mins first, but the mods deactivated the limit AFAIK.

RealKill
12-22-2003, 05:22 AM
Willey, I believe you are correct. The default setting is probably 30 minutes, so they must have changed it.

I would not see why it would suck, though. It does not suck every where else. 'I' just think it bad form to change a post after 20 people have responded to it, and it no longer says exactly what some of the people had referred to.

In regards to that, and maybe having to make an additional post, which really is not bad because it usually helps with the flow of a thread, is that the 'post' settings can be set to only allow one 'post count' per thread a person enters. Yes, I can see the objections to this, already. However, it sure helps cut down the spammers!

As the need for stickies abates (the How to/problem thread for the new forum for instance) they will be unstickied. When they're unstickied they revert to the default positioning (chronological order of most recent post).

Postcount in any forum, is a signal of dedication, unfortunatly since UBI only saved the last 6 months worth of posts in the old forum, only the number of posts done by a user in that period of time was saved.

In my case, i had very close to 3000 posts, i was "Master of the smilie", next would be "highbie" with this account, only about 200 of those were spam posts, and only 10 or so were made on other UBI forums with this account.

It was a bit painfull loosing all that hard earned rank, but now we got something that is quite good as well, the date of the registred account, alltough this is my third account with UBI, so for me it isn't all that accurate, but i don't mind it much.

We have admin working on this, but it's proving troublesome to replicate the problem. In the meantime, two work arounds:

1. Paste to notepad, then copy paste from there to the reply window.

OR

2. Use the "Quick Reply" button instead of the "Reply" button.

Well, unlike the software may lead us to believe, it cannot allow you to change the display name even if you wanted it.
The main reason for this is because your display name is part of you login, and therefore, if you were able to change the display name, you would need a whole new account alltogheter, however, it still does seem you may have some sort of problem.

Something is wrong there, but it doesn't seem to have a reason for it.

Do me a favor, take two "print screen" images.
One of your profile page (don't forget to edit/clear out your real name, and the e-mail also), and one image of the error screen you get.

We may be able to see if something is wrong, but i'm no mod, so i can't acess your info.

The forums now seem just about tweaked spot on, however I would like to see one more thing changed, if possible. Is there someway to get straight back to the IL2 GD forum from My Space? It's a minor point, but I'd like to not have to scroll down the list of forums to find the IL2 ones. I don't know if this change is possible, and like I said it's a minor irritation. Thanks!

Two options:

1. Bookmark the forum of your choice

OR

2. If you click on the little minus sign under each game you can collapse the forum categories you aren't interested in seeing. Once you've done that, press the Tools button and select "Save page preferences". After doing this, you'll see the page as specified each time you return to it.

Tully,
I absolutely hate this new forum....
I definitely need to type my message in Word first and then paste it to the reply window - otherwise I will scare all visitors away from this forum with my spelling errors.
I am getting "Message Body is a mandatory field. You must enter a value for it" when I try to post my stuff.
Not everyone speaks perfect English...
Is there any hope for me and people like me?

Bogun, further info on this issue. Some text editors add "invisible" characters. Apparently UBB.x is not very good with those. At this time, admin have no cure and can only suggest trying a different text editor. If notepad doesn't work, I can only suggest try saving the notepad file, closing notepad then reloading and then copy/paste, that should strip all the invisible formatting characters out.

If you have access to other text editing software (Lotus, StarOffice, OpenOffice etc...) you might try those options as well. Sorry I can't be of more immediate assistance http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Well the speed is arguable, for me it acts faster.

The stability however, is rock hard, unlike the asp forum wich gave me an error every one out of three times.

What is it going to be like when it fills up like the old one.. time will tell.

Definately dont have the script errors to deal with and that helps too.

Overall, it's about the same as the old in terms of speed for me. I am used to the features now, I just preview in notepad, or in the post window. It works.

BTW, I notice that I'm now staying logged it with each visit. I also upgraded my Mozilla 1.5rc to 1.5, but it's either that upgrade or the forums are now remembering my login. Very good, in either case.

I'm getting used to the appearance now. Loading and navigation have been flawless so far. This should have been done over a year ago. I was always amazed that a company that sells computer software would have a website where half of its content would function only half of the time.

Well, i guess you could look at it this way.

What happens to a baloon, when you blow more air into it then it can take?

That's pretty much what was starting to happen with the old forums.

biggest pile of poo ive ever seen. forums are meant to be accessible to all. for all to have a voice. i had to make a new account so i could get here because i couldnt post without ubi saying i need to respond to some email which i never recieved. all these icons ??? why??? whats all this functionality for?? you ask me, its bloatware. the old forums had the perfect amount of functionality. enough to get the job done without the need for daft rubbish like avatars, which basically is just sidetracking what people have come here to do, and that is CHAT, not pretend to be 'david bailey' or 'van gough.' all this extra code goes wrong and is buggy, because youre going too far.. comprehend?
im a software developer myself, and i wrote a better forum than yours for our corporate intranet. and im just 1 person, not a team of people. i also fix any bug, and i mean ANY, within a day. i cant beleive how you guys get away with being so bad.

besides this, i would like to know why its compulsory to enter a postcode now? why do you need to know my address? are you going to stalk us?
well you dont have my real one anyway. even if i had to write a valid one, i would use someone elses. IMHO, why dont you delete the field from your database, saves space doesnt it. in fact, i'll fill up the box to maximum chars just to waste your disk space. and i hope others do the same.

If you think the asp. forum was simple, think again.
When it was still allowed, i had a 3000 caracters script, where i could override the guidelines and insert a custom avatar, personal board and rim color, with an extra image on the stat bar.
I also had a severely scripted signature, with two main images, and an extra array with 12 random images of a A-10, that would change depending on how many posts i would do on a single thread, and also depending on how many times a person would refresh or reenter that thread.
In short, it was a visual knightmare, and nothing simple about it.

I'm sorry to inform you that, if you don't know the benefits of the ubbx software, then you aren't much of a software developer.

The software is new to the UBI forums responsables.
They are slow, true, but they are not sleeping on the job.
90% of all the problems since the forum was up, have been either explained or fixed if possible, something you would know if you read the first page of this thread.
This thread was started for the purpose of flaw reports, and a good job it has done so far, so, instead of talking out of your ***, help yourself and others, by reporting any problems you have, so they can be adressed and fixed if possible.

You need no post code whatsoever to write in the boards, and html has been disabled for security purposes, and its easier to maintain and pinpoint problems.
If you are not acustomed to BB code, then its about time you do, since you won't get much else.

Only what you allow to be visible is what you will have displayed to the public, nothing else.

yes, i read it, my point here is the mishandling of the project. It would have been better to duel run the new and old forums so that any issues related to something basic, like logging in to make a post could still be done. it only needed to be duel run for a week or so. That is standard Software development practise in England. you make sure the new one has the critical functionalities working before switching the old one off.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>If you think the asp. forum was simple, think again.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Web Applications never are simple, they can be horrendously complex, possibly the most complex programs in existance at times. ASP is old hat now, and getting extict by the minute, cannot understand why they choose that over .NET technologies. but that is not so much the issue.

i dont write forum software chum. i write financial software for corporations like the stock exchange. the intranet project i worked on was sideline stuff. i have no interest in the history and success story of ubbx, it just has to be able to let me post with my old account, and if it cant do that without an administrator intervention, then it wont give me a good impression of it.

Not THE one, but among them, but i was in fact the one who gave the 56kers more problems, i was truly abusive.
Neverthless, measures were taken more than a year ago, so that was left in the past a long time ago.
Nowadays i do all my sigs and avatars artwork, and i optimize'em to its maximum, as to retain the best visual feedback, at the smallest possible file size, as well as doing the same for other users who request it.
I mended my ways, but i don't deny my past.

I don't know if this is feasible, but an add at msn.com gave me an idea. You see, there's these adds on the page (not pop-ups)that follow your page down when you scroll; they stay in the same relative position to your desktop. Would it be possible to implement this with the menu bar for the forums, the "NEW/FIND/MY SPACE/NOTIFY/TOOLS/REPLY" bar? As an example, I believe a lot of GeoCity personal pages have the same kinda thing. Bad idea/good idea?

The thing i hate the most on the web, is nav bars that follow you all over the place, like in the geocitys websites, that, and flash adds that use the same stinking principle.

You're absolutely correct about that; I agree 100%. In that context, they're like having an add-man sitting on your head talking all the time. Yuck. As a web-site nav aid, tho, (especially one you could turn on or off depending on your preference) don't you think this could work?

I think the new forums are a great improvement http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif However my colleague BTZ_Bonehead tells me that he is unable to post on it now and that technical support seems to be ignoring him. Here is what the man himself has to say...

I never received the email from them asking me to confirm my email address so now I can use the forums, Ive tried resetting it but it still doesnt work.

My username is BTZ_Bonehead I have also raised 2 support tickets with them I never received the email from them asking me to confirm my email address so now I can't use the forums, Ive tried resetting it but it still doesnt work.

I never got an email either.

Just get yer mate to go to his profiles and confirm his details there by pressing the 'submit' button and he should be up and running. That's why I did at any rate and seems to be fine now.

The new forums are much, much better, though I don't see why we have such a small box to write in.

Bone says he has tried all of that but it doesn't work. He has also tried changing his e-mail address which causes the board to send him an e-mail to confirm the change, but it still doesn't work.

What is annoying him most is the fact he has submitted requests for help twice but has heard nothing.

Whoooo Im in! thanks Veta, I ended up fiddling about till I got in. I entered my postcode it seems this is mandatory. I sent all the confirmations back that I got after changing my email address but that didnt work.

I would just like to say Ubicoft, thanks for nothing! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif I have been asking for help on this now since 20th December and I have had not had a reply to my emails or support requests. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif Oh well I guess they have had my money no point worrying about forum access.

Too many stickies already!

As the need for stickies abates (the How to/problem thread for the new forum for instance) they will be unstickied. When they're unstickied they revert to the default positioning (chronological order of most recent post).

I never got an eamil to verify my email address either.

Finally on the 3rd try submitting my profile things are working ok again.

Now that everything is fine and working I like it.

I mentioned this way back there somewhere...

'I' would like the reply/edit window to open MAXIMIZED, with the text input area maximized, also.

As it is now, 'I' can open the window, and try maximizing and minimizing, 3 times, 4 times, 10 times, not set number to get the darn thing to completely maximize. To me, it is a real pain. Maybe others do not give a hoot (or maybe they do not have this problem). http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
