Too many kinks in the vBulletin - dislike the look and feel. Many times being different for the sake of just being different aint good Football season crunch time will be a nightmare here if you guys do not do sometime

Sammy is sure it will get better...

Site as of now has a clunker feel = Delays, hiccups , studders and is slow. Just not user friendly or intuitive to use

@ Kinger... Sammy knows you'll work this out :cheers

Would like if I could "hover" over the forums on the top left, and there would then appear a drop down menu that lets me pick which subforum. 1 click instead of 2. will save me 2 valuable minutes during my lifetime.

This project came to life in a very short period time. At the time we discussed our options with our graphic designer and IT guy and they recommended that we setup the hosting through the Vbulletin cloud service as it would be the best option to have us go live in a short period of time.

The site was launched before it was ready due to some leaks and Friday afternoon was a perfect time to do so.

Having said that, we have learned that Vbulletin cloud software has many limitations, one would expect it to be a better version than previous older models that are used by other forums but it turned out to be the opposite. The IT guy and graphic designer are working on a older model of the Vbulletin software that will not be hosted on the cloud. That will allow us a lot more customization of the site, avatars, page views, PMs, vastly improved site speed, etc etc. We are hoping to have this done within the next 2 or 3 weeks.

In the mean time we appreciate the patience from our clients while we improve our site.

I think it's pretty good showing for the short period of time. I mean compared to the HH transition this one went extremely smoothly.

The suspense of Sept 1 reminds me of the Y2k countdown.

Just bookmark the subforum you want to be the one you visit regularly.

You could also bookmark any or all the subforums.


That way all you do is click/select the appropriate bookmark.

This is a newer version of the vbulletin software, much less prone to ddos attacks. It will take a while to get used to but overall should be a better experience.

You can customize certain aspects of the software in your user control panel.

TGF has done an amazing job in only a week. 50 poker entrants for the opening poker tourney, over 200 members already. I'd say they've done better than most for their initial kickoff. Improvements will come with time.

You should try using the little x function located at the top right of your screen. That would definitely improve the forum and could easily be done at no cost
