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.

- Can like posts and can see who got likes
- Get alerts for threads you've replied to or have been quoted on.
- Faster
- Easier to use, post, reply, PM, etc.

A few notes:
- Old URLs will be redirected to the new URLs 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:
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:
$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.$
Note: after posting you'll need to refresh the page to see the rendered math!
Will display:
$$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.$$

Looks weird but I'm sure I'll get used to it.

I'm really liking the extra features and easier profile access on the mobile site though!

Thanks for all the work you put in!

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.

Looks nice, I'm a lot on a different forum that uses Xenforo, outside of some small issues it is very good, esepcially the alert system.

Would there be a way to have WCA profiles and YouTube channels linked around people's avatar as before? It helps a lot in knowing who you're actually talking to.

He says they'll be added soon.

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.

I'm glad everything is updated, but it will take a little while to get used to the new forum.

And also it looks like all the profile pictures are blurry.

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.

Will Tapatalk still work? Pretty much the only way I view the forum

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.

Works for me.

So it looks like the time limit in between posts is down to 30 seconds. Okay. I'm good with that.
