Welcome to the upgraded forum. There are a lot of new features, and a much faster and easier to use platform that now runs the community.

Please browse through your profile and update your user preferences as needed. If you notice any bugs or any issues at all, please reply to this thread so I can fix them.

Added features:
- Can like posts and can see who got likes
- Get alerts for threads you've replied to or have been quoted on.
- Easier thread subscriptions (watch thread)
- Email notifications, if wanted.
- Faster
- Easier to use, post, reply, PM, etc.

A few notes:
- Old URLs will be redirected to the new URLs soon - DONE
- WCA/Youtube links will be added under avatars soon. - DONE
- Commas have been removed from usernames. So if you’re one of 5 users with this issue, the comma was removed from your username.

Overall I think this will make using speedsolving a lot better, and will enable a lot of further features if we decide in the future.

For those of you who liked using speedsolving.com/old, this page will replace it to see all the latest posts (read or not):
https://www.speedsolving.com/forum/find-new/posts?recent=1

Again, please go through and update your user preferences and also report any issues you have when using the forum. Any feedback to improve the site is appreciated.

Thanks and enjoy!

Edit:
More updates:
1) The [table] bbCode has been updated. See here for help.
2) The 'New posts' link in navabr now shows new post count (see here).
3) MathJax is now enabled so you can use LaTeX to display math. For example:
[math]x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.[/math]
Note: after posting you'll need to refresh the page to see the rendered math!
Will display:
\( x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}. \)

If I click on my name in the top right corner twice (first time brings up the mini menu, then click again) I get an error saying I don't have permission to view the page.

Wow! Looks good, and really fits with the theme of the rest of the site. I personally liked how the old forum spanned more of the page, but I can get used to this pretty easy. I do have one huge complaint though. Doesn't have an equivalent of the index.php page, where it lists all the new posts. That's pretty much the only way I have used the forum in the past.

Been using vBulletin forums for the last 10 years, so anything else looks extremely weird to me too lol. But it already looks like this will be more convenient.

Looks nice and definitely a lot faster. But I've noticed these links here:

do not work.

[hr][/hr]
Old URLs will be redirected to the new URLs soon
Will this include links to specific posts, as well as just threads? I've tinyurl'ed my PB post, so I don't know if I'll have to make a new one or not.

EDIT: looks like some BB tags (e.g. [hr], [post]) don't work any more. :(
