i'm using a Mac and it doesn't have those up and down keys, but i actually don't care about the change. i don't seem to be having any problems with my avatar unless that's already been solved? maybe those people had funny file types or something that it didn't like.

oooh notifications! Cool :)
And as for the avatars, I just found a new one, all is good.

I am a GZ Regular now! :wub:

I thought I had to make my 1000th post first, I was never purple before :)

Here's an update for all repliers
  • I don't think the forum jump thing is coming back, but use the top link as described, I'll check on this though....
  • I believe I've found a way to bring topic descriptions back, hang in there in the meantime
  • I'm sorry about any lost avatars. If you need me to, I can grab your old one from a backup of the site
  • 'Member's now become 'GZ Regular's at 500 posts instead of at 1000. I'm sure that's ok with the elitists.
  • I'm testing out "Display Names", please see http://www.guitarzon...e__pid__3394163
  • Now new members are put in a 'New' group for 7 days. During those 7 days they cannot put any links or images in their signatures. That is a spam fighting measure.
  • I will add some more emoticons soon
  • I will try to adjust the colors or give the user the choice of a few different themes, but that is a low priority at this time.

Cheers! :guitar:

The topic description feature is also missing, and I'd like to point out that it's a major inconvenience for a forum like the album reviews as the albums are sorted by artists (topic title) and album names (topic description). Any chance you can fix that too?


Topic descriptions are back. Let me know of any problems. For some reason they removed it in this version of the software. But some industrious fellow named Eric made a mod that put it back. And he sold it to me for US$12... <_<

Seems to be loading normally. Is it possible to add the option of using a web URL (from somewhere like photo bucket) to upload a new profile picture/avatar?

EDIT: Also having trouble uploading a new picture. <_<
EDIT Part Two, The Retyping: Had to sign up with gravatar.com just so I can have a picture. <_< <_<

I'm having the same problem on my iPhone. Every time I hit the reply button, it goes to a blank page.

Having said that, I like the way there's now an iPhone app for GTU. I also like how the lo fi version now features a "go to last unread" button. It didn't have that before now.

I'm using an Android phone, and having zero trouble with posting. And Waz is right, the new version looks excellent on a mobile phone..
