The Tapatalk support is obviously missing and the latest posts in several threads I've visited are not visible. And the current theme... gray on blue... guys, seriously?

not sure who did your folks migration or design. But its horrific (the end result with bad design, coding and site covered in 404s ... and the downtime too). Not what I expect from one of the most seasoned hackintosh communities.  On the bright side? It cannot get worse. ;)

Couple of tips to make it better, tune into:

etc. etc.

Welcome back, guys! There are still some visual tweaks needed here and there. But hey, you're back! And that's all that matters. Everything else is history.

One request when you guys have time:  can you improve the post editor?  it is very basic now and missing many features.

There's no font selection at all (I often use Courier New, a monospaced font, for highlighting names of commands/command output in the middle of a line).  there's no option to view the source/BBCode without formatting, no superscript/subscript, no option for spoilers, etc.

Most/all of these things are achievable with manual BBCode, but that can be quite a pain.    This is an example of manual BBCode to get Courier New, but it's very slow to have to write manual  font tags all the time.

I know this will be lower priority than many other things like improving the theme/layout, but I thought I would bring it up in the hope it at least goes on the radar.

Thanks again for all your hard work. I donated for first time last night to help support you.

Maybe it looks better with inverted display colours.

Although I'm personally not a big fan of inverted colors, I do like dark themes, too.  And since the forum supports theming (you can check out the default one at the bottom of the page, to compare), I see no reason why we couldn't add a dark theme in the future. The important thing is that the forum is back. :) Things like that (themes and extras) can be added in the future, if the forum administration agrees to do it.

Regarding missing posts - it seems "Clover General Discussion" has no posts since January 26?  So missing several weeks of posts rather than just 1 day like other threads I have looked at.

Probably this is a known issue, just letting you know in case it's not.

This problem in many threads.
Cache and history deletion in the browser does not help.
Alone a new post in the thread helps. Only then the thread is updated and the missing posts are visible again.

 

I hope for further improvements.
I also do not like the editor and I miss download counter attachments and display active users in the thread.

Nice that the site is online again. :thumbsup_anim:

That's good to know that a new post can sometimes bring back the missing ones.

However I have posted in a couple of threads and the missing posts did not re-appear - at least posts made in the 24 hours before the forum went down are not coming back.

I guess it differs between threads and depends on the age of the missing posts? 

 I did notice that in Clover General Discussion it keeps giving a popup saying "200+ new posts", bu then it never displays them.  Hopefully those would appear if a new post was made - unfortunately I can't post in Clover General Discussion because it's locked  :(  Probably it's locked because of the missing posts - until they are fixed.

Anyway hopefully many of the missing posts are not gone forever but just hidden for now and will be brought back.  But I have a feeling that posts made in the day before the forum went down are probably gone forever.  But that's no big deal.

yes, Clover General Discussion is unfortunately locked for nornale users, in which case it does not work. Wait until a developer posts! Then again up to date.
The popup "200+ new posts" or similar in other threads does not change anything on a click, unfortunately.
The admin's and mod's will fix the bugs for sure. patience

Hey Allan,

Hey Admin

after the update has everything become very habituation.
I share the same opinion as Mork-von-Ork and the other critical users here.

the simplicity and ease of use of the website has gone missing.
The design is not mine.  Light gray and dark gray text color font on the blue background?

I do not like it. As a wearer of glasses I have big problems to recognize everything.. Before the update it was much better. I'm only talking about the design. Nothing else.
Very sad, I mourn the old website design and usability.

In addition, I missing since the ubdate, many pages in the AMD Area.- No idea why they were forgotten to activate.

Don't worry guys.

As @Poco says, the Forum will have the fixes soon.
All is very new for us, some of us have a lot of knowledge about this new version, and other are still learning.

Me in comparison with my Forum friends, I'm still a beginner. ^_^

I agree with others that the design is still sub par (color contrast!) but of course this is should be fixable easily by tweaking some CSS. But what I don't understand is why the site is still not running https?? Thats a huge ommission in my eyes, please add this as soon as you can.

I miss the old InsanelyMac.com already :(

I know this new version has so many new feature and I'm also grateful to have all of my friends back (I mean all of you guys); of course the new interface needs some tweaking (as Allan and Poco already mentioned) and it definitely needs some getting use to on our part as well; but it would be great if you guys can add the old theme as an option if it's possible I really loved the coloring of the old theme. As for the SSL and HTTPS I agree with Pavo and the others.

The Donation section is now fixed in the main page which would be great if you could make like before or all the other parts of the forum as well so we can easily hide this section too.

The spacing between signature lines is also needs to be fixed in my view.

 

Thanks guys

This is not a matter of patience we are simply trying to report back our experiences and feedbacks with the new site and its features and the features that we miss from the previous site. I guess this is going to be helpful and it will definitely will make this great forum better.

P.S:

from all the great feature that we lost we still have the GREAT like (recently named reaction) limits!!! (How Wonderful) %$#&&:hysterical:

      Rules 
      Our goal is ensure that the forum remains a helpful & friendly place to learn about how to run Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware, and of course other general banter. We want you to be able to discuss anything and everything here, and to do so we ask that you check out these guidelines for forum use.
      Do not upload anywhere else files when developers specifically ask not to. We take this matter very seriously, as developers are the very heart of our community.
      No Flaming. This includes racism, threatening, personal attacks, victimization or hateful content. Retaliation will not be tolerated either; if a member has broken a rule, please use the report feature on the forum and the staff will deal with the situation appropriately.
      No posting of direct or indirect links to warez or pirated pieces of software, this includes cracks, serials and torrents.
      Do not publicly argue the decision of a moderator. If you disagree with a moderator take it up with them in private via PM.
      Only one (1) login is allowed per member. Duplicate accounts will be banned or deleted.
      Bumping of posts is not permitted. Other than being less annoying it also keeps the posts more informative.
      Meaningless and useless posts may be removed at Moderator's discretion.
      Only post your post once (1). This keeps the forum cleaner and makes it easier to find what you are looking for.
      No advertising or business offers of any kind.
      No posting of copyrighted material. This includes copying and pasting news articles from news websites.
      Attached materials must come with clear descriptions of what they are and what they do, linking to this information elsewhere is not sufficient.
      Materials derived from Open Source must include source code, as well as an explanation of what has been done to it.
      Discussion of P2P, torrent sites, or similar download sites of any kind will not be tolerated. We do not want to know your illegal downloading habits.
      Do not post spyware or any other malware. This includes linking to other sites which may contain it.
      Posting just to promote another site, product, or service (spamming) is not allowed. This site is not here for you to promote your own or anyone else's material.
      Discussion of commercial spin-offs of the OSx86 scene is allowed if it’s to understand their existence, but no discussion of how to use them, nor any support for these commercial spin-offs are allowed as they are not in the spirit of the OSx86 scene. Example of commercial spin-off: tonymacx86.
      Why InsanelyMac does not support tonymacx86 VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ! (ABOUT TONYMACX86 AND iATKOS M / Y / EC / SR)  
      Posting Guidelines
      If you have a question please do your best to use the search feature and search the forum before creating a new topic.
      Post in the correct forum and read the forum description. This will make sure that your post will not be removed.
      Pick an appropriate title and tags (if any) for your post. A good title makes it easier to find what you are looking for. Using informative tags allows for improved searching of related topics.
      All posts must be clearly written and easy to read. For example, if you have long blocks of text, enclose it in BBCode; if you have code, use a code box, etc. Limit "empty lines" as much as possible, use punctuation where you can and be concise. Posts may be edited for this reasons by InsanelyMac staff at their discretion.
      Please remember that you are in a public forum, a bit of courtesy is always welcome. It's always nice to start by saying "Hi" or "Hello" before asking a question or seeking help. Also a "thank you" would be appreciated, especially if the help you get is effective.
      Your topic does not deserve any more attention than others seeking help hence topic titles must reflect their content, and topic titles containing things like: 'please help' 'look here' 'cash reward' 'urgent' or other inaccurate descriptions will be removed. This includes all-caps titles.
      Give your hardware specs when necessary (asking for support) and any other time where it may be beneficial to have them listed.
       
      Signatures, Avatars and Nicks
      Keep your signature/avatar clean and tidy - should you receive a PM from the staff regarding your signature/avatar, please make the requested alterations or it may be removed/shortened appropriately.
      To keep pages loading fast for everyone, we request that your signatures and avatars contain no animations or high-definition graphics of any kind.
      Signatures should be no more than 6 lines of text using a regular font. If you can't fit all of your system specs in that you'd like, why not create a small graphic to contain the information?

      They should also contain no referral or affiliate program graphics.
      Avatars should be in "good taste," a qualification that is broad enough to let us determine what is and isn't. Goth-devil-child-wild-eyed-in-the-violent-blackness probably qualifies as being in bad taste. Nothing offensive, pornographic, or vulgar.
      Nicknames must be readable by the system (without question marks). This will ensure that your nickname can be searched, and that other users can contact you. They should also not contain staff member groups (administrator, moderator, developer, etc.) to prevent confusion.
      Nicknames should also show respect to the community, thus nothing containing offensive language. Email addresses must be real (nothing like bugmenot or similar). Accounts not in line with the last two rules will be edited or deleted without warning.
       
      Policing
      Do not publicly discuss the decision of a moderator. If there is any issue with a decision of a staff member PM them or contact an admin.
      Moderators have the ability to suspend or impose posting restrictions upon accounts based on the user's history. Records are kept to keep track of user's behavior and point out repeat offenders. Attempts to circumvent posting restrictions will lead to your account being banned, and any other accounts affiliated with your account being banned also.
      These rules cover a broad spectrum and are set up to preserve a free and open (and fun) place for discussion. They, in conjunction with common sense and good judgment, should steer you in the right direction. We're all human and we know that people make mistakes... but that's also not an excuse. More rules are subject to appear on this board as we see fit, so please check back from time to time for your own benefit.
      Thanks for joining our community and helping make it the best it can be.
      In case the rules localizations should differ, the English rules are the standard.

      Many users wonder why we do not support tonymac's products here at InsanelyMac. The reason is that we believe he is a commercial spin-off of the OSx86 scene, and it's not in the spirit of OSx86 to have commercial intents with development.
      These are the main reasons why we don't approve posting his material here (why he's a commercial spin-off):
      1. His software is not open source. This is often confused because most people equate open source software with free software. This is definitely true, but it doesn't grasp the entire scope of open source; open source also includes releasing source code for the product, which tonymac fails to do. The OSx86 community believes everything should be open source.
      2. The construction of his site is set up with emphasis on donation buttons and (affiliate) links to Amazon and Newegg, hinting at interests of profit.
      3. The intent of gaining profits is basically confirmed by marketing his projects with suggestions of donations as though he deserves it, even though his products (most notably #####) is a compilation of products/drivers developed by others (not himself) that any non-programmer could put together.
      4. You must pay for the tonymac software. Although this may seem reasonable considering the effort involved in building a customized installer for specific computer builds, again, it is not in the spirit of OSx86 to charge for software development, so the wiser idea would most likely be not to offer that service at all. Even though it may be nice for newbies, in my opinion it does not encourage education but rather laziness. I say this because the OSx86 movement is designed as an educational movement, where by hacking Mac OS X you can learn more about the operating system works, how computers work, etc., like how many of us do. However, the purpose of OSx86 is not a way to get a cheap Mac, which I personally believe is encouraged by tonymac's software considering it is marketed to perform a task without any sort of explanation of how it works.
      From another perspective: http://prasys.info/2011/01/tonymac-seriously/ This covers one of the issues brought up by developers.
