    Hey everyone out there in TCMAS-land!

    Michael and I are proud to announce that the new forum software is installed and all of our data is migrated into it.

    If you are reading this, then you have already found the new forum, so congratulations!

    Have a look around, leave feedback in the Site Feedback forum (http://www.tcmas.org/forums/forums/new-site-help-and-feedback.190/). Please keep in mind that we have not completed every last bit of add-ons and features. We will get to those in the coming days.

    Please help us out by reporting (via a thread in the above forum) any bugs or odd-ball issues that you come across.

    Thanks,

    Your TCMAS Administrators
    Michael and Jeremy

    There is still quite a bit to do but after we sat here together for 8 hours we were just braindead and needed a break.
    We decided to open up to new Forum tonight instead of implementing more tomorrow and then open it up.

    A couple hints:
    • You can find already some info how to use things by going to the "help pages"
    • You can switch between a narrow or fluid layout. Just look at the bottom left of the forum where you see 2 arrows pointing at each other. Clicking on them will switch between the layouts.
    • Many sections with a heading (example "All about TCMAS") you will see a little icon on the right. Clicking on it you can open or close the section to your liking

    I'm really liking the new look and some of the updated options are cool.
    I know you guys did a lot of work and have a lot left to do, so I'll keep a list of bugs and odd-ball issues until later.

    Correct. Didn't know you were asking for the phone. The screens on mobile devices are to small to have that option. If you could do that nothing would be readable

    We noticed there are about 10 Lifetime Members without their status after the import.
    I am going through the list to find them all

    Trying to familiarize myself.


    So the "Live Feed" is that the same thing as "New Posts" on the old ?

    Also, I see the album area but none of my old ones are there. That I don't care just so long as all the old pictures are still imbedded in the posts as images and not just X.

    looks good, better on the comp than phone. one last question, I know everything isn't done yet but will there be a side thing with the upcoming meetings like on the old forum? I really liked that feature.

    The "live Feed" is a page you could leave open and it will refresh every every 45 seconds with all new postings. So technically it keeps updating automatically.
    If you just wan't to see the new postings, classifieds etc. without a refresh better use the "What's New" tab. First one in the Navigation bar

    All images from your old Albums are visible in the thread. We are working on an import in the new Gallery in this forum also

    Yes. There will be a box. Just didn't had the time today to transfer all the Meetings from the old one. There will be also the RSVP system available
