Did you mean "forums.soldat.pl and soldatfoums.com both works..."?

I asked about it
We can enter forums via either domain now, it doesn't matter?
but no one answered. Nevertheless, since our admins are clever, I hope that address used doesn't matter.

It does. soldatforums .com will now only serve as a redirect as it's most basic function, while the forum will actually run off the forums.soldat.pl address, which is the one you should use.

K, so I changed my bookmark to forums.soldat.pl, that's correct?

Damnnnn... I went on SF this morning and seriously said "What.. the hell?" out loud. I did not expect this the least bit.
Change is always nice, imo this may be better. Sense when was this change planned?
I think I'll still type forums.soldat.pl so in the future when sf.com goes away, I'll already be used to typing the correct way :)

Guests can't change page without having to go back to the parent forum.

In otherwords they don't see this:
Quote
Pages: [1] 2  All

Could you amend this? I am sure I am not the only one who browses as a guest and only logs in to post.

Edit:
Guests don't see that on the forum sections either.

Nice, much sleeker than the old skin. If I may ask, who designed it?

ElephantHunter pretty much did all of the design work.

Oh my god... This looks worse than php 3 php nuke. Change it back!!!!!!!

But yeah, awesome new forum guys!

If you kill that "Veterans" box on the main page and give the submit buttons a nicer look, then... F12 :)
I really like the new design, and I like how it looks like a portal. Good job guys!

Kill it yourself, just hit the minus sign to minimize it.

The light grey lines separating the replies look weird. Overall, I think I preferred the old one, but this certainly isn't bad.

Oh, and what's with the huge spacing at the end of short posts?

I was anticipating this, and I'm ecstatic that it's finally here. I hope that, as always, you can't actually tell because of the way that I type. ;P

It seems to me that there are a few very minute kinks to work out, but I'm very much enjoying this new layout. Seems to me like everything is a little more accessible with the addition of a few new buttons up by the banner and the box with the avatar right underneath that. "Moderate" button makes me feel powerful.

Thank you so much for the warning system! I really, really missed the one we had on the old forums. This makes things so much more efficient. I assume that we'll just wipe the titles of members with warnings whenever we stumble across them?

But anyway, aside from that, I think the stars need to be revamped just a tad, the username and quote from links should change color slightly instead of being underlined on hover, and the background color of the reply box should be similar to the background color of the table that it's in, rather than being white. Tiny things, in my opinion, that complete the feel.

Edit: Why not use the stars that appear under a user's avatar when they're online? I like those. Neat and tiny.

i like this. except for the big, big problem that...

WHEN YOU TYPE IN QUICK REPLY, IT DOES NOT AUTO-ENTER FOR YOU!!! it just runs on, and on, right out of the text box.
