About New Forum
 
It is just being tested at the moment - it isn't really ready yet. We have to get adverts in and other features need to be fine-tuned. The idea was to get a load of posters on there before, during and after the match so we can have a look at how it coped.
Borolad kindly put together a couple of lists from going down the message board. But now we probably have enough traffic to cope with for the time being. Having to look at two boards is one too many. We have a bit of work to do now before we decide on how that board is going to go forward and when and how we switch everything across. That could still be a while off. Am not sure. I have a meeting later today. But our original idea was to do it gradually over a period of time. That may be revised.
Anyway, sorry for it to have looked like we were drawing up elite lists. It was just a quick way of getting a few people over to test the site.

Had a go on it.
A bit strange at first as it's very different to this, but it's really growing on me.

A few tweaks and it's almost there I reckon.

Do you know when it'll be ready and launched for real?

Anyway, it's a thumbs up from me.

How are you testing load with just a small number of users? Surely the issue on a match day is all of the users plus all of the non-signed in users viewing. You can't replicate that with minimal user testing. Isn't there software to test load that would be far more effective than doing it manually?

I think he's saying whatever link you sent him is the only way he can access the site. So what he needs is maybe a direct link to the new forum if the web address is different to the links you are sending people.

You don't need to clever with tech to use the new site as it stands now, although those who are can get probably get more of it. This means a lot of people should be content and there I say it happy using it.

Visually it is more interesting than the current site. It didn't shut down during the game last night or just after.

When it's fully up and running everyone will be delighted I'm sure.

The mobile version is so far ahead of this current place it's unreal.

A big thankyou from me to Rob and all involved.

Yep. It is certainly not far from being a fully functional system in terms of user experience. Will need a few tweaks like some sticky threads, changing the landing page etc. Nothing major.

So much better on mobiles. Like chalk and cheese.

As Rob says, he needs to add advertising. For the good of his business.

Also, it still needs to be proven in terms of stability and load testing. Plus a sensible migration strategy needs to be developed.

All in all a very good start.

We are experimenting with advertising and the like - so it might annoy you with that going on in the background and foreground.
The original idea we had was to get things right on the new forum and then invite everyone over. We are not there yet. But getting there.
Please bear with us. We will all get there in the end. But best to do this gradually and do it right.

"hows about posting some screenshots, desktop and mobile?"

Just go and have a look: fmttmboro.com

Apparently a link to it has been posted on C.O.B.... so a thread talking about the new ignore function is underway on the new fmttm site.

BTW - I'm not on the invite list. I just popped over to have a look at it.

Heine - you need to wait until your registration has been manually approved. You can then update your profile and make posts. I'd imagine this is a temporary situation to control sign-ups, now that the URL has been made public.

Click your name at the top and then account details. It should then lead you to the page where you set your avatar.

You might also then want to click preferences so you don't get a load of emails you don't want.

Can't help you with how to post as if you are logged in and on a topic you want to reply to then it should just have an empty box for you to write your comments!

If you mean how to create a new topic then there is an orange button "Post thread" on the right hand side above all the topics on the desktop version. Not used mobile so don't know if that layout is any different.
