IT'S TIME - Page 4

post #151 of 187

Two things. First, congratulations to Nick the crew that put this together. Second, I really apreciate all the hard work you have done to finally get to this point because I know you do it so that every chewer out there can have a greater experience on this awsome site, so THANK YOU.

post #152 of 187

I feel a little like I'm at Tiffany's;  everything is so new and shiny that I'm afraid to touch anything.    I'll get over that soon, I'm sure.  

 

It does like nice and CHUDtacular.

To access the mobile site, just go to chud.com on your phone and it should automatically redirect you. If it doesn't, sit tight. We are working on getting a specific address set up for the mobile version.

Nick Nunziata, The new...CHUD.COM is...Awe-Inspiring and Awesome!  I love all the hard work, you and your administration have done.

post #155 of 187
Okay, this looks awesome on an iPad.

I'm still poking around.  Honestly, there was a lot of old CHUD that I didn't explore, so it will take me a while to find my groove with this, but so far i like it a lot.  Modern, but not TOO modern.  So far the only thing I'm not nuts about is that I need to scroll a bit to get to an article after navigating to it (maybe the radioactive grill is a little large for my tastes).  But that's my only complaint among a large double-handful of marked improvements, especially in searching / feedback.  I'm a little lost so far on some of the MB stuff, but a few issues with that seemed to have disappeared since yesterday, so I'll be patient.

 

If writing reviews is going to be as much-improved as I hear that it is (I'll know real soon) then I will leap for joy.

 

All in all, I think it's great and can't wait to get settled and prop my feet up.  Get some sleep, Nick.  You've earned it.

At least it'll stop people from endlessly posting those goddamn pictures of green boxes.

 

Also, I'd love to see a mockup of a CHUD redesign from Brad Millette.

 

Not bad so far even though I think I was just too used to vBulletin, but I'll live. And as always these things are a work in progress. Good work, gang.

Congratulations on the new site!  Very impressive!

post #160 of 187

Is there a mobile-optimized version of the boards, too?

post #161 of 187

Bravo i brava, everyone involved! Looks exceptional, congratulations. Now to pull up Also Sprach Zarathustra (....Deodato's) to explore along with. Looks like I'm not gonna be as productive today as I'd hoped to be...

 

Bravissimo i bravissima!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooohh....

However...I hate to admit this, but I can't get to the site!! The forums loaded this morning no problem, but every time I try to access the site itself, I'm still getting the "we'll be right back" page. Is it down again this morning for tweaks, or am I doing something wrong? Help...I wanna see all the new shiny things.

 

ETA: And how do I insert an actual picture into my post?? I guess I'm more tech-illiterate than I realized. frown.gif

Have you tried clearing your cookies/temp internet files/cache/etc?

post #164 of 187

Everything's very slick all of a sudden.

Nicely done.

post #165 of 187

I still have problems getting to the site proper, too. Sometimes it's there. Sometimes I get the "we'll be back" message. Sometimes I get a "forbidden" page. Seems totally random. Refreshing or deleting cookies doesn't immediately help.

Checked in last night and got the "We'll be Back" [great job with the graphic design!] page -- now I automagically get redirected to the main.

I'm sure I'll get used to the design and I'm sure the forums are much snappier than vBulletin (don't know what it was doing, but it took a while to fully load).

Quick question: spam/abuse protocol is the same as before? Any extra protections?

 

post #167 of 187

Just wanted to add that I LOVE the forum dropdown shortcuts. But hopefully you won't lose too many page hits due to this.

post #168 of 187

Aaahhh...thanks, I just accessed the new site! I repeat my earlier "OOOOOOOOooooo"

 

Looks great; nice work, Nick & Co. However, it will take an idiot like me a while to get used to it. Off to play around now...

post #169 of 187

Fore what it's worth, I clicked through the banner ad for Red Vines and entered their contest. Because goddamn I love me some Red Vines.

 

Moral of the story: CHUD needs more ads for candies I love.

I've been getting a "forbidden" error in Safari, as well.  No problems in Firefox, though.

It's beautiful!  And the forum is so fast.  Loves. 

post #172 of 187

Ditto. Even with the hiccups, pretty great stuff.

post #173 of 187

Fucking love the site.

post #174 of 187

While the new mobile version is a VASTLY superior experience now, I can't figure out how to access the forums with it. Is it not an option, or am I missing something?

post #175 of 187

Ok, very awesome site, but I do have another critique. On the main page you have what seems like 3 different ways to access news items:

1) The icons in the little film-reel thingie at the top. 

2) The radioactive creature-grill

3) The links directly underneath the grill

 

 

This seems like a lot of unnecessary clutter. It's almost like staring at iTunes interface, which I can't stand.

post #176 of 187

I figured out why I was having problems accessing the main site. I didn't have "chud.com" bookmarked. I had "chud.com/articles/" bookmarked. It seems that used to be the default homepage for the site, but not anymore. Changing my bookmark to chud.com solved all my "forbidden page" or "page not found" problems.

 

Now, what's the deal with trying to quote a forum post? Shows up as white text on a white background for me, making it impossible to edit. I'm not the only one having this problem, am I?

Hey, no you're not. If anyone wants to be helpful, we're compiling bugs in two different lists.

 

Huge, obvious errors here: http://www.chud.com/community/forum/thread/130266/list-the-most-pressing-bugs-here-for-me

Looking good guys!  Congratulations on the relaunch!

post #179 of 187

Color me impressed. It's been a hell of a week for me so Thursday was my first time getting to check in and see the new wallpaper, so to speak.

 

S'purty. Great job, everyone who worked on this.

post #180 of 187

I'll echo the love for the new look, but I must also admit that it'll take some getting used to as far as navigating the site goes.  That's not a bad thing, mind you.  

post #181 of 187

Yeah really happy things have been playing out.

post #182 of 187

"My God, it's full of stars!"

 

Beautiful work. The site looks great. Bugs will happen and get ironed out, but... damn. Me likey!

post #183 of 187

Has anyone else stopped receiving emails for the threads you've subscribed to?  Mine all just stopped after THE CHANGE.  Had it set for daily digests but now nothing.

post #184 of 187

Might wanna resubscribe.

post #185 of 187
When I click an embedded picture in a post, it pops up a picture viewing window that seems to have slideshow capabilities. Is there something we can read about how to use/customise that?

 

post #186 of 187

I hope this post goes through. Only about half of my posts on the boards actually get posted. A lot of times I'll hit the submit button and then that box will pop up that says, "Please wait, loading..." and then nothing will happen. I can leave for ten minutes and come back and the stupid box will still be loading.

post #187 of 187

Ok. Tried resubscribing to all my threads to get the email digests again. No go. I changed all the settings to Site Only and then back to Daily Digest. No go. I even checked off that box down at the bottom to keep having the emails come in regardless of how long I've been away from the site. No go. Any help at all Nick! Please!
