Hi All,

We're now testing new forums on Network54. They should look exactly the same as the old forums that we've always had, but there are some immediate differences:

1) Better search options are now available. You can search by username and we there is an additional sort option which lets you sort by oldest posts first. We will be adding some additional search options which will include grouping the search results by thread, or searching a specific date range.

2) Joining groups via a private forum is now integrated into the forum. This is a minor change, but the experience is more consistent.

The less immediate differences are more important. We have moved all of our old forum formats into a templating system, which makes updating the forums, fixing bugs, and adding new features a lot easier.

While in test mode, the new forums will be available at a new URL:

www.network54.com/f/[forumid] (new URL while testing)

If you'd like to test your own existing forum with the new system, respond in this thread (with the URLs of the forums you like to test) or contact me via email at cpmoser@network54.com.

While your forum is in test mode, it will still be running the old forum system at the /Forum/[forumid] URL. Any new forums that you create will automatically be test enabled.

I'll continue to post more details in this thread as we roll out and expand the new forums.

Other people can post photobucket to the site but I can't, and my photos represent ALL of the archived tech data.

My advertizers won't pay me if the info is not available !!

Whats up ??

thank you,

Hi Ripper,

In order to run the test, we need to activate the forums for testing. So until then, it will show a 404 not found error.

I've activated both of those forums and they should be available now at the test URLs.

Regards,

Hi Mrstang,

We need to activate each forum individually while we're doing the test (at least, at this stage). Let me know the forum URL and I can activate it.

I tried the URL provided with my forumid, and it doesn't seem to work. I tried it both with and without the square brackets.

Seriously, this is ridiculous. Announced 8/29, then another on 10/10 yet things are still AFU and no resolution in sight?

Really gotta wonder about the long term viablity of Network54.

Oh and you billed me today for the next 3 months of this ahem, "Service".

3 things I need from someone at NW54 to tell me:

a realistic date of things being normal
how much credit your going to give us for the hassle
some way to have an actual conerstaion with a human at the company....
