    Please! Check out the VB5 site

    Since we have new servers, everything seems a bit quicker. I've re-upgraded another snapshot of the database and installed vb5 and I'd like folks to give it a try. DO NOT POST OR DO ANYTHING THERE THAT MUST BE SAVED.

    You can log in and post if you want, but it is ONLY for testing purposes. I know a lot of our complaints there were related to slow response times, but it seems pretty good now. We have to understand that the old v4 software will be phased out at some point...so embracing and doing what we can to enhance the experience now is the way to go.

    The site is;
    http://vb5.beginnerbikers.org

    Check it out, give me some feedback...thanks,

    Hey I've tried various bouncers, but no one can make those people behave.

    Yeah, I got the "unable to contact server" message when trying to navigate through the bar thread. Other threads seemed to work though.

    It seems to go to the first page of the thread instead of the last.

    Yeah thats to be expected....I didnt monkey with the attachments on there, though its easy enough to fix i guess. The biggest complaints were page to page browsing being absurdly slow...so that's really what I want tested....because if vbulletin has corrected those issues along with our move to amazon being a big faster, then we might go ahead and move. I was able to change the styles a little bit to what I liked to give the site a more modern feel, but the complaints were overwhelming.

    One of the things I didn't like about the style choices is that "somebody" thinks that "next/previous" links are evil incarnate, and they disappear whenever a style is "modernized".

    Most of the time, on a forum this size, it isn't a HUGE issue to go back to the index to navigate to the next topic. It may be that the reason for the hate is topics like the bar - rarely do you want to go to the first topic when of a 10,000 page thread... But, I still prefer that option.

    Your problem is you rely too much on Beginner Biker bouncers, I suggest you try branching out to 1%-ers instead.
