    @killohurtz - With "kill" and "hurts" in your name, I'm assuming not.
    @phi - Doesn't actually feel the Sunshine- doesn't feel at all.

    As an FYI, I think Tapatalk integration is broken or something, or maybe I should uninstall/reinstall the app, but I couldn't use it all weekend. On the bright side: the mobile layout for the forum is actually way better anyway. I'm the only person I see talking about Tapatalk ever, so if I'm the only person ever using it, don't bother fixing it because I doubt I'll continue to use it.

    I used it briefly, (only got a smart phone recently), and while it was nice the new software does have pretty good mobile support. I suppose if you actually used it for more than one forum it matters more.

    A brief look seems to indicate tapatalk does have a plugin for this though.

    It's installed, and I had used it on Geit's testbed successfully. I just can't use it now that we've migrated over.

    Error is "Network error, couldn't connect (get_config)" btw.

    Also, when clicking the title of a thread that I've already read, I should be taken to the first post, not the last post. I think others have said this already, but it really just doesn't make sense. It means there's no way to go to the first post of a topic from the topic list. That's absurd!

    @Crash and @YM requested that the thread title always take you to the latest post, I'm still not sold on it but I'd like to try it for a little longer. You can always click on the date below the thread title to go to the first post.

    No, I wanted the title to always go to the first post!

    The envelope is for first unread
    The date under the most recent later is fire last post

    They're both getting nearly a year of VIP each (2 days for each port).

    Forgot to reply to this one earlier - I didn't install Tapatalk in the end, as I assumed the mobile theme was good enough. I'd rather not install it, but if you think it's a must I suppose I could be convinced.

    I do feel that the "new post" envelope is redundant in the new system.

    You can also... click the link for a longer time to go to the first page, which is weird.

    Another technical issue to throw on the pile: It seems like the first screenshot of a map can't be viewed in full size. It's not clickable in the thread, and even when I go to the details tab, the others are clickable but that one still isn't.

    No, don't bother. But please do fix the thread title thing.

    I think you got their complaint backwards? Well I don't remember what Crash said but
    this should be correct.

    Is the rss stalking bot broken? We should have a thread for the recent blog post, right?

    Are you psychic? I was literally fixing that as you posted this.

    I still can't post any replies in the TF2 news section it still just shows "(You have insufficient privileges to post here.)" at the bottom of each page. Could it just be something with my account? I see henke37 was able to post a reply to the new comic thread on that forum.

    Seems like previewing threads/posts is broken?

    Do threads get marked when they are ported over? Some way to know if a map/model/texture/whatever has already been moved over to the new site?

    If you do happen to find a duplicate resource just report the newest posted one as a duplicate, an admin will come by and clean it up. If you're porting a resource I would recommend searching the forum first to see if it's been ported.
