    Hello Fellow Loungers!

    My name is Dennis Johnson. And I am the Community Coordinator for iNET Interactive. iNET Interactive is a social media company operating prominent online communities for technology professionals and technology enthusiasts. And Windows Secrets is one of those "prominent online communities".

    We have received feedback that the WS Lounge is difficult to use. All iNET communities make use of the vBulletin software. As such, we will be transitioning WS to the vBulletin (as opposed to the current Invision Power Board) platform for ease of use and to maintain integrity across the network.

    We would like to invite readers of this post to visit http://stage.windowssecrets.com/forums/. The site is .htaccess protected (just to keep the spiders out). Please use the username/password lounge/lounge

    Kick it around and post any bugs or concerns back here. If you see something that doesn't work, please let us know. If you see something you think we need to add or remove, we want to know about that too.

    One thing we're aware of is, while we’ve tried to map all current accounts over to the new Lounge, there may be some people who are unable to login. If you get a message of an incorrect login, you'll need to use the forgot password function to reset/update your password.

    Thanks for helping to make this transition go smoothly.

    Login - worked for me as plain entries (i.e. no "username=..." etc), but only when I remembered both my login & password correctly!

    New Lounge looks OK so far, thanks

    Site is typical vBulletin but, IMO, overlycomplicated and very slow, even with multiple T1 lines. I much prefer the existing site.

    Didn't find much improvement over this. On the other hand I've never considered this difficult to use in any way. So, maybe the ones that do have trouble with this system could define a little bit more of what the difficulties might be.

    IMHO it is too slow compared to both predecessors.

    I don't see a difference but I visit less than once a month. Seems easy to use and the toolbar seems complete. Whoever set the fonts for dates at 0.1 point or whatever needs to enroll in an empathy-for-the-elderly program.

    Hi -
    In the Outlook forum the icons are
    an Open Mail Envelope for "contains unread posts" and a Closed Mail Envelope for "contains no unread posts"

    But those are the exact opposite of what those Icons mean in Outlook. - May I suggest that they get flipped?

    - Kirsten

    Excellent! I've been a fan of vBulletin for some time. This should improve the member experience considerably.

    I noticed, though, that the test vsite is running version 4.08. The latest version is 4.10 PL2, which has a number of bug fixes and has redesigned some of the hooks. Before you go too far along the path of customization, you might want to nupgrade.
