    As a long-term xenforo user/fan, after the initial unfamiliarity wears off, I think most everyone will appreciate the ability to easily see who's responded to their posts, awarded them likes without having to open more pages, or tagged them for their opinions.. not to mention how much more smoothly it runs. Just like I indicated to "old dog/new tricks" @fishfanmiami.

    I have never used taptalk but it sounds like you do not need it anymore with the new Finheaven

    Sorry about that! Turns out that your account was set up with the pre-2013 owner of the forum and that your money has gone his way. That's why you were not credited properly in our system. We will honor the payment that you made and extend your VIP for another year. To prevent this from happening please cancel your payment to mattkentsworld@gmail.com. I would jump up and down with excitement if you resigned up with us

    My VIP badge is gone so I guess that means my year had expired. How do I re-up?

    VIP badge is up and running now so nevermind :)

    Will we be able to show our join date again? I'm proud of the fact that I've been here almost 13 years now.

    Your current VIP subscription is good until Jan 18th, 2018. I went in and fixed your setup.

    To upgrade you account you click on your profile and select Upgrade Account.
    To donate you click the big Donate Button to the right of your screen on a desktop computer and on the very bottom on a mobile device.

    I know when I started. On the old site that information showed up under your avatar and everyone could see it. We also had the icons such as Deadpool, Batman, Golf Enthusiasts, etc.

    Any chance any of that returns at some point?

    I think we are looking into getting old. Things like the icons back. But since they were just cosmetic they aren't high priority, just like the badges.

    It seems like I was logged out on all my devices. I have it set to keep me logged in. It seemed to do so for the first few days, but starting yesterday, I had to re-login on each device.

    How do I get to the front page with all the news and stuff not just the forums? And also the first day it launched there was a chat available that enabled me to talk to anybody who was on the site at that time...what happened to that?

    Still no option to view in threaded mode. Very frustrating have to scroll through endless posts in linear view. Please add back threaded view options, or at least hybrid view at a minimum.

    Are the VIP sections not yet up and running or is it just moi?

    Cuz all I'm seeing are a lot of "private" areas and 6 old threads I started going back years ago, including the lamenting of the disappearance of Myles :idk:

    TIA

    keep me updated, there are some settings
    Yeah, it doesn't look like it's going to happen. Perhaps there is an Addon out there, or Xen2.0 (whenever it's actually going live) but according to the stuff I've been able to find on a threaded view, Fiheaven won't have one.

    That sucks. Probably will limit my replying to threads because there is nothing worse than having to scroll through pages in order to keep up with a conversation. Especially when one thread opens up several sub thread conversations inside of it. Even more so when threads are moved or combined. Then there are gameday threads. No thanks. Zero interest in having to scroll through 30 pages of posts in order to find something of interest.

    "Go to First Unread" next to the page selector makes multi pages threads a little easier to deal with. But threading is something that the new forums do not support.

    it's a per board option with xenforo. It makes sure everyone has the same settings so if I tell you check the third page, it'll be my third page, it'll be your third page, it'll be everybody's third page. I did however bump the per page messages from 40-50.


    For everyone, I think you need to understand that the board is functioning as intended, while I appreciate that everyone has preferences, as long as the board is functioning as intended, we aren't going to chase down every setting to try to make everyone happy.

    Sometimes its like chasing two (scratch that... a ton of) chickens....
    Increasing the posts makes some people happy... Others are getting pissed that it takes a little longer to load and they have to scroll more...
    The same goes for pretty much everything that we do... We obviously can't make 100% of our users happy with the changes.. But I think that a great majority is happy with the change. We are almost done with the forum part. Then you can start "commenting" on the Front Page...

    @Wildbill3 and myself has spent a ridiculous amount of time tweaking the new forum (and are not quite done yet). We are NOT switching back to the old way of doing things.

    Sorry, guys. Any forum I visit regularly that insists on not providing a white background for reading text is pretty much out the door. Good luck to you, fellas, though - it's been a long run! The rest of the site looks great.

    What an odd comment. I don't understand this?????

    I understand that quoted text isn't in a white back ground but it never has been even on the old site the color was the same for quotes.

    first i'm going to assume you meant it's too white. second I've seen enough uniform and helmet threads around here to know that I do not want to try to create 4 or 5 versions of finheaven that could possibly please everyone. I've experimented on enough designs that have huge elements of black and dolphins colors to know that they look horrible. Finheaven has always had what I think is a unique look, and to this day I try to design parts of it with elements from the pre 2007 design. (hint, anytime you quote someone, the background color is exactly the same as a main color of 2006.)

    Love the new forums. Only issue I have is picture sizes on when viewing on my Galaxy S7. Any embedded pictures are not sized to fit within the width of the forum. It displays as (I assume) original size and stretches outside of the boundaries.
