Anyone we know D, I hope no one from inside Lionbackers.com?

I had noticed on my laptop which has as close to military grade security as can be acquired commercially, hidden in the second layer of graphic emoticon "smiles" and after using one, my anti-virus would prompt me noting "Hack Attempt 1".

This did not show up on my normal desktop virus protection, when the same actions were undertaken.

I didn't bring it to your attention at the time because I wanted sure if it was some glitch particular to my laptop or something legitimate, but now that you make mention of it.

I notice the new phpbb3 layout has no second layer of emoticons now, just a coincidence maybe?

:shock:

This is the first time I have been on the site in 2+ weeks, and was shocked when the home page first loaded. Looks good so far - change is inevitable.

Ditch the option of using different colour font though....

Hey Derek, here's some feedback:

#1.
When viewing a long thread that had multiple pages, the previous version was set up so that there was an underline (indicating a hyperlink) for all pages other than the one the user was currently viewing. That allowed the user to know what page they were currently viewing. Now, there is no such indication as to which page the user is looking at. I think that previous feature should be brought back.

#2.
It seems like the Search engine is only displaying search results for posts that were made after the upgrade, but not before. For example, if you do a keyword search for Printers, you will only get five results while a search for Dunigan will not bring any results.

#3.
The feature on the Home page that showed which users had logged in in the last 24 hours should be brought back.

#4.
The feature that allowed a YouTube video to be incorporated in a post by enclosing it with [youtube][/youtube] should be brought back too.

#5.
What do you all think about the feature that allows the user to browse Roar Room or General Discussion posts separately?
祝加拿大加式足球聯賽不列颠哥伦比亚卑詩雄獅隊今年贏格雷杯冠軍。此外祝溫哥華加人隊贏總統獎座·卡雲斯·甘保杯·史丹利盃。還每年祝溫哥華白頭浪和溫哥華白帽女子隊贏美國足球大联盟杯。不要忘記每年祝溫哥華巨人贏西部冰球聯盟冠軍。

改建後的卑詩體育館於二十十一年九月三十日重新對外開放,首場體育活動為同日舉行的加拿大足球聯賽賽事,由主場的卑詩雄獅隊以三十三比二十四擊敗愛民頓愛斯基摩人隊。

幸福和繁榮的馬年。

恭喜西雅图海鹰直到第四十八屆超級盃最終四十三比八大勝曾拿下兩次超級盃冠軍的丹佛野馬拿下隊史第一個超級盃冠軍。

One improvement I've noticed is that the features associated with "new posts" now seem to be smarter. If I log in and then log out (or get timed out) before having read all the new posts since my previous login, the unread posts remain classified as unread until I open their respective threads in a subsequent login.

For purposes of this improved feature, individual pages of a multipage thread are considered separate threads. In other words, if I fail to notice that a thread has continued onto another page(s), and click on the "view new posts" link, it still shows that thread as having unread posts, and if I click to the new posts of that thread once more, it takes me to the start of the first new page I previously missed (so it seamlessly picks me up where I left off).

Good stuff. :thup:

I didn't notice that any of this was the case before. At any rate it was certainly not as easy to find missed new posts from a prior login; the date/time stamps were all I could figure to go by.
Sports can be a peculiar thing. When partaking in fiction, like a book or movie, we adopt a "Willing Suspension of Disbelief" for enjoyment's sake. There's a similar force at work in sports: "Willing Suspension of Rationality". If you doubt this, listen to any conversation between rival team fans. You even see it among fans of the same team. Fans argue over who's the better QB or goalie, and selectively cite stats that support their views while ignoring those that don't.

One thing I've noticed, things seem MUCH faster - loading a thread, changing pages, etc.

I noticed something odd regarding the older posts. It seems like threads that were polls were somehow salvaged during the upgrade, whereas older posts that were ordinary threads were lost.

For example, in the CFL Football forum, pages 35 to 37 consist of all posts that are polls, ranging from Nov 30, 2006 to the very last thread on April 23, 2005. But for the non-poll threads, they only start on page 35 from Dec 13, 2006 onwards.

Why were threads that were polls saved?

Is it possible to salvage the non-poll threads before Dec 13, 2006?
