Apart from the fact that I'll never remember the password without looking it up and the 'new posts' icon doesn't disappear when the post has been read (it didn't in some of the old forums either) - its great - so fast :)

I see why the 'new post' doesn't disappear - it doesn't update the last time I visited.

If the forum index (index.cgi) page is dynamic and will sort the list of forums by most current date of last post within their section (Search Engines, General), I think that would be handy.

Not remembering passwords? It is 100% default in that effect - I never touched it! I never touched it!
The 'active' list does that rc. As the posts build back up and are added to the active list, it will work better.
For now, the old posts from the old board, never got built into the 'active' list, so it will take some time for that to build up and become 'active' (hard one to explain).
What I *love* is the speed. I could just feel SEW slow down to a crawl when 10-15 people were using the old UB. This is easily 5 to 10 times faster at every available option.

Passwords - use the profile option to change it.

speed is great, no doubt about it.

re The 'active' list does that rc.
Oh, yeah! So it does. I like that much better, thanks!

Ya, that active list is a separate db that is built as posts are created. So the old posts from the old board are not in that db (even when responses are made to them). It would be quite involved to add them to it.
It also is where the 'search' function searches. So...no way to search through the old posts. I think I'll add a Swish index for this thing - I was worried about it slowly growing out of control though.

re: I was worried about it slowly growing out of control though
you and I both know that if your worry about it, it will happen. i'd sit back and watch for awhile --so far, i'm impressed as-is.

This is way cool! It doesn't seem to update the last visited thingy, but it does seem to be a lot better than the old one.
It says I'm a "Full Member" but doesn't have how many posts or "Member Since" stuff.

RS, welcome back - gald you made the trip over with use from the old system.
Ya, the old board had that dual name scheme where you signed in with one name and posts were displayed with another. I had to choose. I think I made the right one. Some (like yours), I had to hand edit because they included upper case letters and the new system didn't like that.

What, no 10 on the 10 scale?
Ah ha! You must be a programmer! You counted 0! Nice work Brett.
Do you ghost write for ClickZ?

Yeah, I noticed that it doesn't like it when I use the mixed case on the forms.. Guess I've been using Windoze too much! ;)
0 to 9 is the ten scale to me.. I guess you can tell what I do for a living! (Option Base 0)

finally remembered to request my new password
really like the new board - no complaints yet
| 3:41 pm on Jun 26, 2000 (gmt 0)|
Been out of the country and out of the game too long, and I come back to find THIS?? :) Looks great Brett!
| 4:18 pm on Jun 26, 2000 (gmt 0)|
I have a complaint - there aren't enough complaints around here!
I like the look and, yes, it's fast.
How about a vote on the "remembering password" option (if it is an option)?
I vote: please remember.

Josh! I was about to send out a search party for you. I was wondering what had happened to you. Nice to see you back.
Remembering passwords? Engine, do we really want to trust me with rewriting cookie code? (grin).
It sure is a pain to enter the password all the time - I hate. Near the top of the mods list. I'm waiting for OldTimer to point out more existing bugs first. She has a nose for them you know.

btw, determined, use a capital "D" in determined to login next time "Determined". I got your login in sync with your user name.

>I'm waiting for OldTimer to point out more existing bugs first.
I think you've squashed them all Brett - apart from one odd one - that isn't applicable any longer.
You were sent an email from firstname.lastname@example.org to
For one, I just want to say "thank you" for the opportunity to be in your links program. I'm sorry to see it go, and do appreciate all your hard work very much.
I don't know whether you received it but it came to me! Not only that, it went to someone else as well -an Irish domain - and when he returned it to you, I got it again!

I take it back! Just looked at the forums via Netscape for a change (Comm. 4.6)
No New Post bullets appear at all.

I've tried and tried, and I can't duplicate that Oldtimer. I'm getting them here in NN 4.6.
Any other Netscapers in the crowd?
re: the echo'd mail.
I heard about - oh did I hear about it. I was editing the list permissions file when that email happened to come in as a reply to the mail list. Best guess is that the permissions weren't set while I was editing it. (I'm glad it was a rave email instead of something personal :-)

Oops - sorry - wasted your valuable time, I must have clicked the 'no' to the cookies. :(
| 5:39 am on Jun 29, 2000 (gmt 0)|
That is ok, while I was looking - I found an unrelated typo bug :-)

Don't mess with the cookie jar Brett!
