    I like how the sub form topics are shown so someone can get to the right destination quickly.

      Many thanks. I was debating the look of it because it felt a little cluttered. I'm glad you think it works.

      Great to review a new forum, thanks. Lay out seems easy to navigate so far. I am so used to the Get Satisfaction site, that it is second nature to find what I need. This seems pretty comparable. The private messaging option is interesting....Actually a bit worrying. I have previously made great friends through the Get Satisfaction beeline forum after finding ways to get in contact outside the forum, but I have also had bad experiences with forum members stalking and harassing me too. I can handle myself, but I would be worried about younger forum members. I know you have to enter a birthdate, but anyone can enter any date they want. Actually, on that point, how do I make my birthdate invisible to anyone except the forum moderator? In the privacy settings it says you have the option to do this, but in the checklist of options I can't find where to do that. Off to check out more.... Edit..... When you try to edit (add to) your post here, it deletes your previous comment. Uggh annoying. Edit again... The questions sub forum is a great idea. Have always missed a FAQ section.

        Hi Worker Bee. Yes, you can see members personal details including birth dates. If you look at a members page, in the "about" tab, it shows the birthdate. Can this be fixed ASAP. Thanks.

        Actually, sorry. Edit. I did find how to hide my birthdate etc, but it wasn't obvious to work out. Maybe that could be made easier?

        Just tried out the edit, and like Caro said, don't like how it erases your original comment.

      So far, I love how we can personalize our profiles and the private messaging option. Also, I like how easy it is to switch between the chats for the different games. The layout is clear and easy to navigate, I didn't find it cluttered at all. It will be great to finally have an FAQ section! So many new players ask the same questions and the search feature on the old forum is not the greatest. On the negative side, I had a hard time registering. After a couple days of trying to use my iPad with no luck, I finally was able to register using an Android phone.

        Oops, forgot to mention that I also like being able to view the member list and also being able to see who is currently visiting the forum.

          Hi, I've had a few hours to play around with the site and at first had no sign up issues, but only when I tried on iPad mini I was prompted of an incorrect sign in and used my 4-5 chances and had to wait 15 min to access again, but after that I sign in on iPad mini and was successful, I quite like the layout and setup, I'm finding it more easy every time I'm in the forum. About the SUB forum topics, (announcements) a couple hours ago I made a post under smurfs life topic / sub topic, random chat, and advised players of an iTunes live update of version 1-9-0-, was that the correct sub topic or can we make it an Announcement topic? I wanted to make it an Announcement but was unsure About posting a picture via my iPad mini, I tried to post a picture as I usually would via my library's camera roll, but a prompt appeared stating my picture file exceeds the limit. How do I fix this? I am enjoying the site and look forward to its full transition

            Hi DC. We would prefer it if players didn't post things in the announcement section unless it's dealing with an update just being released. Usually myself or a Beeline employee will post the announcements that an update is live, but if a forum member beats us to it, we will be able to merge your topic into the official one, as well as all comments. This is one of the nice things about our new home!

            As for the pictures on your iPad, that has to do with the limit that's currently in place here on the new forums. Usually, most pictures on an iPad Mini or Retina iPad are under 2MB. The old forum had a limit of 2MB, which is why you never had to deal with it before.

            Hi spelling bee thanks for clarifying that for me

          Overall, I like this forum more especially the sub topic. Plus I like the member list, able to see who on line.

            I'm enjoying learning my way around this new forum. There's so much more we can do here now than we can do at the Get Satisfaction site. And a quick glance at the help menu shows more and more are possible! One thing I would like to suggest... Please raise the image upload size limit to 2MB. It should be, at least, at par with the Get Satisfaction site's upload limit. Thanks!

              Arghhh...I knew it. At the time I don't have wifi access for weeks there's something interesting showing. First glance looks great. I really love the quote option it makes the convo's so much easier to read. And layout seems great. I like the easy to navigate forum threads. Not much time now but I'll check out more as soon as I can.

                Testing the quote....and notice the "comment field" is very small on iPad as soon as you want te delete a part of the quote.

                  Hi Tapasz. Yes, for some reason the software is not showing recent activity if that activity is in the forum of a comment instead of a reply. We'll try and look into that.

                    I was just laughing at some comments and realised it was Snoopy's forum but I had the same problem ... When I posted my suggestion about removing the delete button when placing items it picked up the word button as a profanity and changed the word when it posted to ****on, too funny! ... I had to edit it and change the word to delete "sign". Glad it's fixed, lol. Buttons buttons buttons, so naughty.

                      For the most part, I am liking the new forum! I like how all the games are organized on the main forum with all the sub forums underneath. It makes navigating a little easier. And the designated topic threads on each sub forum is a much better system for posting all our questions and answers. The titles are to-the-point, so you know exactly where you can expect to find any answers to questions you may have. I know there are still a lot of things to tweak on this new forum, but so far, so good! On a personal level, thank you Bees for carrying over the random chat for SSF!
