    New Forum Alpha Test

    Everyone,

    Eventually we are going to move to new forum software that will offer a better user experience. I have a sandbox forum setup to play with right now, and I thought 1000 testers are better than 1.

    You should be able to login with your existing username. If anyone wants to check it out, keep in mind it can change at anytime with no notice and we have done nothing to change the appearance.

    I would assume that the overall look will be similar to the exsisting one, or will the color scheme be different with the forum switch to tradition sports instead of tradition football being the forum title

    yes, that is the default color scheme... we will skin it TF style in time. This is ALPHA guys, implementation is a ways off.

    All I see are my reply quotes or whatever. There is no box for me to type anything in as far as I can see.

    Still nothing for me, without hitting a reply in a post it won't let me post anything because i haven't entered a valid message due to the missing reply box.

    You logged in and went to the post, scrolled all the way to the bottom?

    ** Edit ** There is a tool where I can assume your permissions and post, and it worked and displayed fine.

    Do you have javascript or cookies off?

    Yes, this time I logged out and logged back in and scrolled all the way to the bottom, there is no box displayed only the Post and More Options buttons.

    According to Google Chrome Options those are set to the recommended settings, which I assume is on lol.

    It appears that IE, Firefox, and Chrome all have the same problem for me.

    Yes I click the "Post New Thread" button in the main forum and I get the title box, "Create Thread" and "Preview" buttons, "Post a Poll" stuff, just no box to actually type the thread. Which I assume should be right under the title box.
