Avatar Images

When uploading avatars the uploader is very mean, it will allow only images exactly 90x90 pixels. It won't resize or crop automatically.

BBCode issues

[hr] does nothing now, not sure which other tags are available, is there is a list of tags in use?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sigs

As Tyler said in another thread, we can't set signatures in our control panels

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unread posts page

When clicking on links from the "view unread posts" page the thread opens up on the first page, which is unhelpful as new replies will be on the last page.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

PM boxes

Donators used to get unlimited PM space, all my old ones got migrated and now my inbox is full and it's telling me that messages are on hold until i delete enough messages to make space.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

PM inbox deleting messages

Selecting multiple messages by tickbox then using drop down menu to delete them does nothing, no messages are deleted after pushing "yes" to delete them.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quick reply/edit

Are these gone forever?

not that i want it to sound like complaining since we have this nice shiny new site, i will class these as suggestions. :)

the quoting of someone could perhaps stand out from the text of the poster

the awesome screenies thread thumbnails are a tad small, and no longer have number of downloads (kinda useful to see what people like/dont like for future ideas)

the forum used to have red starfleet symbols and red lines to indicate unread sections.

there are other things that im struggling with to find how to do but i will try more before saying there is a problem with it.

I agree that quoting looked better before as it stood out, now with the quote marks it looks messy.

also with the attached images, when you click a thumbnail it brings up a lightbox with the full size image, this image doesn't scale to fit on screen, so if it is too big, you get a really clumsy scroll bar at the bottom of the image.

previously every attachmed image could be downloaded like any other attachment more easily, that function is gone

unread subforums are now indicated by a light blue glow. maybe it's too hard to see.

nice to hear these infos.

a bunch of old PMs show as "Delete Message: This message has been removed by its author before it was delivered"

when clicked on they offer deletion.

you earned a night's sleep, fix problems another day if necessary, site is good enough for now. :)

Lol Thanks Doca, you deserve the rest. You guys did a great job so far with the site. Probably one of the best and most professional star trek sites I have ever seen. :thumbsup:

Right now the quote and report are hidden from view. Will the buttons for quick usage make a comeback?

I support this suggestion, having to hover over the arrow is an extra step that kinda gets in the way.

Tried to move older PMs to a newly created folder and I get an error page:
Information

CANNOT_MOVE_SPECIAL

I also get that error when I tried to move a PM Myles sent me today.

Not sure if it's a problem but I saved 2 drafts for a post in this thread and it looks like they stay saved until you open them and submit a post from that saved draft

Thanks for you feedback! :)
Just like with Fleet Operations itself, we will continuously work on the webpage and supply improvements and new features. I will work on improving the display of unread posts. I also just changed a few things to the site navigation, making the "daily flow" easier. You should, for example, now land on your last unread post when you check a topic, rather then on the first page

i get that when i try to move PMs too, also the forum didn't notify me of my unread PMs, even though I have the options set to notify in my profile.

For navigating through the pages I always have to scroll down. To have one at the top would be helpful.

Your welcome.

Maybe just a problem with Opera but it seems to cycle through two other fonts when loading before coming to the new standard font (which I like :D).

To be clear, when the page is loading I see first another font, then while loading it changes to another one and then when the page is finished loading it changes to the final font.
