  • The New ChessTalk Is...............

    becoming so easy after using it for a short time.

    The coding in Orange and Blue with the little codes attached to the envelopes makes it simple.

    It didn't take long!

      I also have found the new board very user-friendly once the codes were explained to me ( the orange/blue, the check mark, using the refresher key, etc. ) I have also employed the hybrid display mode, which allows me to see the thread of comments/commenters, while at the same time seeing all the threads at once on one screen. Where this board is truly superior in my view is the fact that posts with new replies jump up to the top of the list and are marked. No more having to scroll down the whole screen manually looking to see if there are any new posts in blue among all the red read ones - very handy.

      I now hope there will be a switch to the new board, though initially I thought I'd prefer the old one.

        Yeah, this new board is really better than the older.

          The main problem with this one is the posts don't roll off after a month or so. They live on.

          Discussion like I have with Duncan often take place far down the old board so they won't be around too long. :D

              After a bit of getting used to the new format, I am beginning to prefer this board. Thanks for the good work, Chris! Also, thanks for staying on top of the feedback and improving the board as you go, it's appreciated..

                I was rather hoping that ChessTalk would update their forum to the phpBB2 software. This board is much more versatile than the old one. It also has an added benefit of allowing me to register without having to pester Larry.

                  I've used phpBB recently. It's a nice-looking piece of software however from an administration point of view it's absolutely and by far the worst of the four major forum softwares I have use (vB, phpBB, IPB, UBB).
