I agree - it would be a shame to loose the old forum.

Other than the grey tint and the post count, is there anything else particularly special about the old board?

Yes, exactly. I like to look up if a user (if he posts something unlikely, for example)has registered 2 years ago and posts only very rarely or if he registered only to post the unlikely stuff in which case I dismsiss it as a wind up.

Also, the search functon worked while on the new board it never really worked for me. On the old board the archived posts went back to 2003 while on the new board the oldest posts are from January 2006 :(

YV - What do you prefer with the old user profile? Just curious. I promise I won't go into a rant.

What a relief, Mike...

I thought I just explained it: someone posts something which is hard to believe: is he/she a regular long time user or just a new spammer who enjoys posting on QZ because it's so easy? Do I have to take it seriously or can ignore it? If a user has posted only 40 messages in 4 years I probably forgot the name. But I take him/her more seriously than someone who registered a week ago and has 800 posts. Or someone who registered only to post that he won table tennis against Brian May :) Or registered to post a password protected winrar archive with rare material:)

Also: on the old board the search function is very good - or must I say: was? Let's say I type Rip Van Winkle into the name search bar, it comes up with ALL posts on ONE page and it tells me which forums the messages were posted in. So, if I look for an old thread it's enough to remember that you or PG or Mr. Scully posted in it and I surely find it. I also see if you started the thread or replied to it and how often you posted in it. On the new board the search function is pretty useless (sorry, Richard). When I enter a username I get maybe 20 pages of threads I would have to scroll through and no forums at all. For most search terms I get no results at all.

I was referring to your preference for looking up profiles on the old board. How was this better?

I forgot about the old board search could break up a search by forum. However the new board was,until recently, able to search for key words where as the old board could not (as I recall).

Serry asks for:
a) old forum
b) new forum for trolls, let them play in their kid's games there
c) to limit signature, not more than 40 letters for instance. I'm tired seeing replies where signature is about 4 or 5 lines and bigger than reply itself.

It showed the registration date and post count of a user, I already explained that twice now:)

I thought it was something more than that because you could already see the registration date and post count under their QZ name whenever they responded to a topic. Oh well.

I wonder if Richard will be in any mood to reconsider bringing back the old board after chasing gremlins in the tracker for the past week or so.

Yes, it's good to have the ability to view how many posts are made as someone just posted in a topic and it's obviously someone looking to be spiteful. The only way I could find out it was an account created for trouble (ID: Mantura) was to search the username and see it was directed to my topic. Can these useless accounts be deleted?

Peace,
Adam.
