    Upgrades looks good, appreciate all your work Jared. Did the requirements for avatars change? I'm seeing a lot of super pixelated ones...

    When you have a chance, flip those old points back on my account. Thanks!

    Appreciate the work that goes into it. The only thing I noticed is that the unread threads do not show at the top level on the app - you have to click-through once to see which threads have new posts. Not a huge deal, but was not sure if that was one of the intended outcomes.

    I'm not sure what you mean by this. The app should not have changed any. You should be able to view posts through "browse" "timeline" and "unread" tabs at the top. Does the "unread" tab not appear?

    It does, but the first screen that shows "Butler Bulldogs", "Bulter Recruiting", etc used to have blue dots indicating an unread thread in the sub-threads. It only shows up if you click through to the next level. No big deal at all - just giving feedback.

    Yeah, I had to re-upload my avatar, but it looks better now.
    Jared, thanks for your work on this. It's much appreciated.

    Ok, I understand now. I don't view the app from that screen usually so I never noticed. I honestly don't know why this changed or how to fix it. I'll reach out and see if I can get it fixed though.

    As for the avatars, I think it's just a result of the images being resized multiple times now.

    I like the new format. I think logging into the site is much easier.

    Also, I'm a big fan of the media button in the text box toolbar. Support for like 50 different media apps/formats? Awesome. Only need a URL too, which is totally easy.

    Definitely. As someone who never figured out how to embed tweets on the old site, it's a very welcome upgrade!

    Looks nice and clean. One suggestion I have would be to make borders of each reply stand out more, in the old one there was a clear break between each post and now it's mostly white space with a very faint grey line. Not crucial but I think it would help.

    Not that it matters now, but it the format was this:

    Code:
    [tweet]TweetNumber[/tweet]
    The "TweetNumber" is the numeric number at the end of the tweet's URL. So if you wanted to post the tweet at "hhttps://twitter.com/BIGEAST/status/760839827197599744" you would put this code:

    Code:
    [tweet]760839827197599744[/tweet]
    Once again, it totally doesn't matter now, but now you know haha.

    EDIT: Notice I added an extra "h" to the front of the URL because it automatically converts URLs now.

    Hey Jared - I noticed that the new format messed up the Scholarship Chart on the recruiting board.

    Also, when I put the link in above using the WYSIWYG editor, there's nothing in the editor to show a link's been placed there unless you go to the BB Code.

    Any chance of the "down vote" type option being enabled like Reddit?

    Since there's like no reason to write things in code into the new version can like the
    Code:
    code font be the unofficial official sarcasm font
    ?

    Looks like for some reason the login bonus keeps getting reversed. It's happening to everyone. I'm just going to turn off the login bonus for now until I can find a fix for this.

    I made the line 1 point thicker and darkened it slightly

    I had given some thought to this addon:

    https://xenforo.com/community/resources/post-ratings-taking-likes-to-the-next-level.410/

    I decided not to spend the $20 at the moment, because I still have about $100 worth of addons I know I'll be purchasing soon, such as the sportsbook addon as well as one that is going to bridge the blog to the forums to help the site act more as a whole rather than 2 separate parts.

    The scholarship chart is going to take some work to redo. This is important so I definitely know I need to get it fixed but it might take a little time. I need to learn a little more about what part of the coding isn't supported by the new software and is breaking the display.

    The linking in the WYSIWYG editor has me stumped. It does look like it is working correctly when posted, it just isn't showing up correctly in the editor, which can be very confusing. I'll have to look at this at a later time.

    I miss the Yuku board, the thought of talking the 2009 and 2010 seasons are just nostalgic.

    Scholarship chart is fixed. It's not as nice as the previous one at the moment but it's clean and functional.

    Still broke for me, but not broken the same way. Using Tapatalk on an iPhone if that matters.
