View counts are now enabled and will start counting from here forward... and no there's no way to rescue old view counts...

Hmm what happened to our animated avatars?

Unfortunately what you experienced with Facebook is due to their own scrapers. It's finding the latest comment as being the first content. That the odd text...

The animated avatars break when they get re-sized. A small issue that has big hurdles to jump to make work.

Is it just me or is the "open link in new tab" not working properly? It opens in a new tab, but also on the same page. So I always end up with two tabs with the linked page, and no forum page (which I have to go "back" for). I have this in both Firefox and Chrome, and only on 3GM pages. It's been like this for a while now so I thought I should mention it.

I have actually been experiencing this too. Difference is I've seen it on other sites as well... thinking there is an ad script or something causing it... tracking...

Every thread that I came across, I saw that the first post has the number of views and "Bookmark this" link. The rest of the thread has three links: reply, flag as offensive, and quote. Shouldn't there be three links in the first post of every thread? It just makes it look more consistent that way.

Yup, point taken. Going to be working on forum consistency here soon so these reminders help us get better :)

The "Originating URL:" links on the new posts are not click-able.

I have had multiple paragraphs turned into one big paragraph in my thread even though I used line breaksl.

I might be getting a response of "Grayson, your post makes it very hard for me to read with one big paragraph," though. :(

Will you please add link to profile or maybe a drop-down menu when it comes to clicking in the user name above the avatar? I'd like to view the posts made by a user when it comes to spam. This helps me to flag the post(s) as spam. This may not work with anonymous postings, however.

Wouldn't it be possible to implement image scaling for posts so that images don't go over the width of the thread while still maintaining aspect ratio?

Maybe I'm just going blind, but is there an easy way to go back after posting? The old system had the nice navigation bar above where you could back up to the subforum or the forum root, and I'm just not seeing it here.

This issue "open link in new tab opens also in current tab" seems to be fixed now, thank you Administrator for this! And also a big appreciation for all the hard work you are doing to make this forum better and better !

@ 3dgamemandrew , there are a lot of useless/empty posts from you which you might want to delete. Hopefully an option to delete posts may get implemented. Until then, disable auto-login on your computer and tell your sister that she has to create her own account.

as everyone knows you are not posting videos on youtube anymore but can you atleast post a video there about the product so every one know something comes up on this website?
