The forum will be CLOSED for a short period tomorrow, January 26 starting at 6:00am EST to perform system upgrades. This should last for a couple of hours and should only affect Mark since he's the only one online that early in the morning.

The upgrade is complete. You will notice you now have a "Like" button and a "Tweet" button at the bottom of each topic.
Feel free to report any bugs here.

Regulars, one thing that didn't port over were the woofers that indicate when there are new posts. Before we put them back up I thought I'd ask if anyone is A) so much happier without them B) misses them terribly or C) has a better idea for indicating whether there are unread posts in a forum (and if so please don't hold back!)

it's fine like this, with the yellow pages.
the important thing is to have a clear indication that there are new posts.

Voted much happier without them. I still get the yellow pages indicating new posts but I don't have to start at those darn blinking woofers!

One nice thing, I was finally able to change the background back to dark. I hated the white but wasn't able to change it back till now..NICE!

Oooh, we'd better work on our 'dark' header - that's a little messy. Do you find it easier on your eyes in Dark mode?

Looks like the woofers are going down so far . . .

Umm, how do you change to the dark theme?

BTW, I find the forum load speed the fastest I have ever seen it - great improvement on my end.

I REALLY like how forum no longer "snaps" to the top of a thread page after you post something. I found that quite annoying.

You can disregard my vote for missing the woofers, the red numbers is perfectly fine.

So where is the Google+ love!?!?

FB is so 2009.

Well it appears the my company's firewall will not allow me to log into the forums since the update. I can read the posts but cannot post anything or make changes to my account from my work computer.

Looks like Axiom is using a new logo / icon for the forum section (ie. when you save as a Favorite) frown

It used to be the iconic blue "A" in the Axiom name / logo.

Fixed up. Last week I had to delete my cookies in order to log in after the forum upgrade. I used the built-in Firefox tool, but the link above should work just fine too.

You are, but you'll have to lose a few pounds before Amie can squeeze you through the upload wire.

I just had to restart my computer (or rather, it decided to restart itself) and now my speaker cones are gone. I miss them!

I hear she axed it, "Are you tired of all the bickering?" When it answered, "Yes," she deep-sixed it.
