New software coming soon!
The latest version of our board's software is coming very soon, it was recently released and I've been waiting for the first maintenance update to be released which is always a good idea, but there's one feature change in particular which I don't like and I know will upset some of our members here...
The software makers have decided in their infinite wisdom to only have one graphic to identify members, that will be their photo from their profile. Yes, avatars are officially no more. When upgrading the board's software, a choice now appears asking whether to keep avatars or photos to identify members, (if selected, avatars would become photos). I have expressed my disappointment to the developers, as have many others, but so far there has been no change of policy.
However, what this means is that you can still use your avatar for your photo (but sorry no Flash avatars as far as I know) and it will appear next to your posts and messages if you wish, but you can only have one image active at a time where as before you could have 2, your profile photo and an avatar.
Its possible that they may change their minds in the future, or a mod may be released to bring back the facility.
Another omission worth nothing...
The note box in your My Settings (UserCP) area has been removed. It is a hold-over from years past and doesn't seem to make sense in community software. If you are one of the very few people who use this: please make a copy of your notes before we upgrade.
