    About the icons: seems OK now, but I think the problem was with the color of the icons on mouse hover.

    I myself didn't find the gray icons particularly invisible.

    About Message Editor Interface: I toyed with the Message Editor Interface options before (under this update), but it didn't seem to have any effect?

    Well, the double-click on the "Reply with quote" trick to "go advanced" works pretty good!
    Thanks, Brad!

    Re: New Forum Update

    OK, I have one not really an issue, but some annoyance. I have set my settings to recive a daily email from all my subscribed threads. This used to come through round about 7 AM every morning. This was quite nice as I could see what was going on directly from my emails. Since the forum change, this has changed to 9 AM. By the time I get the emails now, I already know what was said and done, as I logged into CG before 9 AM.

    Is there some new setting that causes this?

    Is someone still looking at the "Search" issue? I just did an "Advanced Search" on my own user name, and only one result came up: a thread from back in 2003.

    Here's a screenshot:

    Please let me know. I often search through my old posts, to answer common questions.

    I didn't forget it, but not being an admin/mod I'm not making any experiments in that direction unless I see some indication that it might have been fixed.

    The recent test results you present considerably irritate me though: While it seems that earlier searches simply didn't look back further than the point of the update, which looks quite comprehensible, your new results seem to indicate that now the search may or may not go beyond the point of the update, but doesn't find all the posts that are there. Now that doesn't seem to resemble any comprehensible (to me) logical pattern at all...

    [...] I often search through my old posts, to answer common questions.
    I do that myself too (at least when the search feature works), but perhaps the negative impact on users simply looking for answers effectively is even stronger.

    BTW: I didn't mention that yet since it looked so obvious to me that it couldn't have been overlooked, but the "views" counting obviously is also broken: Any thread started after the update has a "views" count exactly equal to the number of replies plus one (IOW the total number of posts in the thread). In particular regarding the thread we're in right here this is plain absurd. This also applies to the download count of attachments. I tried it with an older thread in the Testing Area that had an attachment, and the download count didn't move a bit when I downloaded the attachment. (I find that particularly painful as a few of my own favorite uploads were just about to cross the 100 downloads boundary... )

    Re: New Forum Update

    The search indexes are being rebuilt. This ia very, very big forum and that rebuilding takes a long, long time . It has actually ran for a large numer of ours already and will be continued over the next few days. We are trying to run the rebuild at times when the forum isnt' the busiest to try to keep the drain on it the lowest. When I'm told the rebuilding is totally ccomplete, I'll let yuo know.

    As to the views counts. I'll have to ahve someoen look into that....

    So basically, I wasn't being redirected to my new post, after submitting it.
    The same just happened to me when posting a visitor message to another user's profile.

    I had a similar problem when trying to rate someone's post. It seemed as if ( after you have clicked the button ) nothing happens. I had to visit the post again later, and was able to rate it properly

    That is a bug... The Rating feature was disabled long long time ago for those forums. So nobody could see them.

    That's what I'm trying to say. Nobody, not even mods could see those features. I didn't see them in there. If those buttons are back now, then it is a bug now.

    Just noted that the "Before you post" announcement isn't very noticeable in the new layout. Maybe make it bright yellow or green, flashing and three times as big. Lots of new people seem to miss it.
