    Wow! This is great! Typing this message on my phone and I can read it as I type! No more blindly assuming my gibberish makes sense as my geezer eyes fail wildly.

    Good show, gents!

    Phone use is 100% better. I primarily view finheaven from my desktop/laptop. But when I do use phone, it is so much more enjoyable. Worth the switch for that alone probably.

    Is there a way to change the size of the font? I like the overall look but the font seems smaller on my desktop...maybe it's the added color scheme coupled with the fact I have a red/green color vision issue....makes it harder to read...

    How do I add an avatar? instead of the question mark to identify me and my posts?

    Changing avatar is easy. Click on your name in the top right and select the avatar option


    Font doesn't look any smaller to me. but as for changing the size? @Wildbill3 or @Henrik may be able to clarify that part later. You could always just increase your screen zoom a bit on fh by using control and the mouse wheel

    well my work obviously doesn't like the new format. it now shows up as banned site/forum when im trying to log into finheaven. but whats new. every year my vip dues come out of my paypal and it still boots my vip access every year on here. gave up two years ago on trying to get this straightened out. oh well maybe ill be more productive at work now that I cant goof off on this site

    I looked everywhere, where did you find this? That loading flashing every couple seconds is driving me nuts.

    Beyond that nit picky thing, great job with the migration and site! Know it's not easy at all.

    The forum looks great! Just one thing though- is anyone else being logged out and having to log back in every time you come back to the site? This keeps happening to me (I apologize if this issue has already been raised btw, I haven't gone through this whole thread).

    FYI,

    Looks like the format to get Youtube video preview in your post has changed from the old forum. So if you have any old links to youtube videos in previous threads that showed video preview the just have a link now. You can edit the original post and just provide direct link to youtube now and the preview comes up like you would expect. Never understood why you had to put that extra stuff in anyway on the old site. Upgrade looks great. You guys did an excellent job.

    Two things:

    1. Can I change the default number of posts per page? That was huge for me on the last forum.
    2. Is there an option to change the color scheme? I really want a white background on any site where I read a lot of text.

    Thanks, brohims!

    Well, we're not quite finished yet ... It'll probably be a little while before we finish working out the kinks. Hell, we're still trying to add tons of stuff back in. This is not the finished product, more of a working model at the moment.

    It's a HUGE job - be sure to buy WildBill a beer if you see him.

    oh yeah henrick, I quit caring about the vip. looking at my inbox it looks like 2014 after my paypal was charged to reup subscription it was a hassle to get my vip back going, 2015 had to contact admins again for same thing, money came out but nolonger vip again. last year money came out and I just said screw it Im married now and don't have as much time to goof off on net, in about another month my annual VIP subscription will come out again and ill say screw it again and not bother contacting admin. ill consider it a donation for fun.

    it's there but the search index has to be rebuild. that takes time, and it's not near the top of the priorities. the thread is still in that forum however.

    My memory ain't what it once was so I'm not saying it never happened, but I can't recall commenting in any specific fashion on Duarte.

    There was a chat menu at the bottom right of the page and when you open it there was a gear button which gave you options such as turn off chat. I don't see the chat menu anymore, don't know if that is because I turned it off or if its some other reason.
