[quote="cairnswk"]Feedback for lackattack....IN the map foundry, the central column where the maps are displayed does not enlarge itself to anything greater than the column size within the page structure, therefore the large maps even a trifling 700px wide run under the avatar and username column, and one can't see the entire large map.[/quote]

You can't post/edit any post with an image bigger than 728 (?) pixels wide, either (thats what it says when I try to post there).
Which means it won't let me edit my first post in my map thread without removing every one of the images (or making them URLs instead) and no one can put up updates without A. shrinking the map below the size limit or B. posting all images as URL links....

It kinda sucks...

yep. thats fixed also.
now you only roll triple 6s and the defender only rolls 1s.
problem solved.

[smileys dont work in this thread, so insert a :roll: smiley here with your imagination please...]


I'm getting more used to the forums, and aside from the problems that have already been mentioned (and hopefully will be fixed) I think I will like this new setup a lot more.

So? You can still chat there. Nothing's changed in that regard, except maybe your reason for posting.

I love phpbb3, but I'm just feeling a conflict between the new sexy style of the forum with the angled style of the cc page. They just don't seem to flow together. The colors are matched fine, but I think the page header and the left nav bar need some touch-ups. Maybe some curved corners to match the forum style?

I agree. the new 3.0 has curves.
the CC border around it is still square.
Something needs to be done! mixing squares and curves doesn't work.....

So far as I can tell, it works, this upgrade. I personally like it and shall abide by it (even though there aren't really any rules partaining to this).

Awesome! Just plain awesome!

I have been hoping to be able to block certain members who have psychological anger issues (Dancing Mustard, Spyhunter, Gimil, and Oggiss, for example) from PM's and forum posts for a while. Now, with these new additions, the above-mentioned LOSERS are permanently blocked from contacting me in any way, shape, or form.

Thank you, Conquer Club!

I get the last word.

:D

Control panel, big improvement. Friends list, no view of posts made by people on your ignore list. Allowing for re-voting in polls, clearer search function, overall better layout (though poor colour choices), ranks shown in posts, need I go on? Sheesh, just look around a bit...

I can still see all the posts by players on my "foe list." Of course, I don't think that's a problem. I don't mind seeing their forums posts, just having them in my games. :)

Is anybody else been having problems getting onto the forums since this happened?

I've been having to go through a message that was sent to me by e-mail just to get here and have it run very, very slowly.

Also, can we get a color change? the ones you've got kind of give me a headache.

One thing I would like to see again is the Name of the "last topic discussed" in each of the forum's categories.......If you find out lack, let me know so I can do so in one of my own forums.

This is just like the old forum, and only means the user hasn't read them yet. They'll move over to Sent once opened by the recipient.
