    Welcome to the new version of Silver Stackers!

    We're on a new software platform, having moved to XenForo, one of the most popular and modern discussion forum platforms today.

    A large amount of work is still required (like bringing the charts back!), but there's a stack of new features to be discovered.

    Some highlights:

    Mobile Friendly (finally!)
    Image Gallery
    Calendar / RSVP functions (you can add threads to a Calendar after posting, and set up RSVPs)
    Buy / Sell Trading Feedback
    Polls

    The moderators and I are still learning the platform, so please use this thread if you see anything broken, can't access anything you used to, or can access something you think you shouldn't be able to!

    cheers

    GP

    Avatars - just noticed that despite it working in several dry runs, avatars failed to import from the old platform. Will see if it is something that can be fixed or whether failing during migration was a make it or lose it event.

    Trading feedback - has NOT been imported at this time due to time constraints. Still planning to resolve that.

    Really like the Poll function.

    Will try the album/photo upload function soon.

    Great stuff.

    Have tested on Mac running Sierra, on Android 7.1.1 and on Mac IOS. All seem to be operating effectively.

    Thanks for the effort GP.

    Have spent 10 or so mins checking it all and looks good!

    The only questions I have so far are

    - Can we remove some of the sections on the right menu bar Eg/ Meetings, Events, New Profile Posts etc? Can we customize this?
    - I'm a big user of "Mark Forum As Read" and notice there is now a 2 step process for this - not a problem but 1 step/click like normal (without asking for confirmation) would be good

    Other than that, I noticed there are heaps of alert options in setting so I've turned off a lot of them

    Hopefully the standard font will soon change from Times New Roman :p

    Thanks heaps GP!

    Hmmm, I can't seem to quote you to tell you which one, but "You mean like this" font is much better

    Why can't I quote? Maybe this option is not available for non Silver Stackers yet? Seems odd, but there is no options I can see

    Quote should show up if you click reply to a specific post in a thread - does that not happen?

    The font is on one of the buttons when typing, I tried to set a new/ preferred font as a default, but cannot seem to find that option.

    Ah hah!

    Thanks GP :)

    I think we need GP to change the forums default font.

    Just tried the mobile version and it's awesome! Finally! :D
