    One thing I miss is the location of each poster - it was under his/her avatar, among the join date and post number. There is something neat about knowing who's from where - especially on such diverse forum where we are really all over the world.

      You are correct that e-mail can be read using an IMAP client but there is no access to the outgoing SMTP server. Attempts return an invalid authentication message:

      You have received an invalid certificate. Please contact the server administrator or email correspondent and give them the following information:

      Your certificate contains the same serial number as another certificate issued by the certificate authority. Please get a new certificate containing a unique serial number.

        Not even kbjliquors? Really? An online liquor store posing as a unicyclist? He hasn't posted yet so I can't flag him.

          No, not since the forum has been upgraded. I can only delete single posts or threads now. Before I was able to ban users as well and to delete all of their posts and find other users from the same IP which made it quite comfortable to fight spammers.

          The other thing i'm missing is a search function to find users.

            Thanks Gilbey and Eric for your work on this, much appreciated. There comes a point at which running old versions of the software is just unsupportable (as when it depends on old versions of other software, and you are stuck when an upgrade is forced on you), so well done on keeping it current.

            I'm sad to see that signatures have gone away, and also user locations. On the positive side, the handling of images, and the lightbox-style image gallery, is much better.

                It seems to me, that the search function only finds posts that have been posted after the upgrade.

                  May I suggest you try increasing the character limit on the message content in private messages. PMs work if the message has a single character.

                  Thank you,

                    Hi Gilby,
                    The new "skin" looks great! A little confusing at first; got to get used to the new furniture. Thanks again for keeping this forum running; I look at uni discussions on Facebook and it's just a mess there.

                    Just got this email from a new user, Steve Gillette ("Blueblade"), who may be seeing things you're not:

                    -------------

                    I think the unicyclist.com forum is broken after the recent upgrade, hoping you can contact someone who can fix it!

                    I am a new unicyclist that signed up recently, but never received my activation email (dont think it was really sent) so my new account is defunct, stuck in an unconfirmed state, and, unable to post, pm, or do much of anything but look around, including tell anyone

                    I don't think the site is sending *any* emails, including new user acct activation/confirmations, password resets, or to provide feedback on the contact us form to let the admin know that this stuff is broken. (I tried, dont think it really emailed the admin)
                    You may note, No new members show as having joined since before the upgrade, including myself, which i attempted to some days after the upgrade.

                    I bet there are other new members like me, who are not fully joined, but can't tell anybody about it.

                    Somebody should let the admin know the broken email functionality breaks many other things too, like new memberships and site feedback.

                    Ps my username is Blueblade

                      Like a couple others have pointed out, I miss the "location" info that used to sit under people's avatars. It's a good piece of info that can help us give more targeted and geographically accurate advice without having to ask.

                      It is nice being able to write a reply without having to open a new window.

                          Yes, there is a post by Slamdance, but that needs to be approved (for what reason ever ?!?). When I try to approve it, it gives me a database error.

                            a forum user hasn't been able to log in since the upgrade.

                                Ta.... and that's what's making this forum really user unfriendly for me.
