    Hi,


    the admin has updated to version 4. We are running default style without customization right now.....
    Ancestor(v) and I have to get familiar with it and we will make some changes, please be patient.

    Thanks.

    This color-scheme hurts... way to bright!!! ;)

    Btw, please update the left top logo first, this one is just to freaking ugly on the new theme

    Don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but when I do a search, showing results by post, I only get a list of threads.

    Thanks for your good work.

    I kind of wish this was held off for a while since there are pretty much no VB4 themes yet and I have to say I hate this default theme. The emotions are awful, the screens too bright and gives me a headache, the text size on by big screen is tiny and the navigation menu's make it much harder to keep track of things... I mean I now have to mouse click into my profile to view how full my inbox is which is always around 98% to 100%. 100 inbox messages simply isn't enough when you're a developer with people PM'ing you every day for help :(

    A serious (legit) developer would have had his own site to provide support, not use a public forum to do so... ;)

    What makes you think I don't got one? ;) I just don't want to tie something such as loaders to my own personal website which can then be looked at by the public. Plus any kind of free forum or anything like that is just "yuck" in my mind, it's very beginner like and I would rather avoid it.

    The MDL community is what helped me build the application I have so I wouldn't want to take that away from here...

    Another catch is unlike a few others I have looked over the forum rules, "No web links in your signature except for those that link directly to this website".

    I agree with Daz there. Myself and FS will talk to other mods to perhaps increase your inbox size. What would be preferable?

    200 to 300 would be ideal, plenty of room to store any important ones (people handing out SLP keys/bug reports) while still having room for suggestions or help in general. The amount of times I have got an email alert to say my inbox here is full after cleaning it up just a day before must be over 20, and if I'm on game I get to it when it's at 99% :eek:

    I have increased your PM's to 300 maximum.
    Version 4 was installed for a few hours....we have to run it at default and think about the style.
    This will take some time.
    Thanks.

    I knew you would have, i was just kidding :)

    You got a point there... allthough i'm quite sure this is done to prevent advertisings to commercial and/or harmfull and warez sites

    Thanks Yen, appreciated :)

    It's not that the theme is super bad by the way, it just needs some tweaks here and there. It's a shame a dual channel forum couldn't be setup so that the threads and users are shared between the 4.x version and the 3.x version of vBulletin. You would then just run the alternative 3.x on a url such as old_forums.mydigitallife.net ;)

    The issue of course is setting it up without corrupting your database...

    @ FreeStyler
    Yeah, most links are allowed but that rule as well as me not wanting to tie my personal stuff with loader work are just why I personally wouldn't do anything. Theres always that "what if", like what if MS follow the link back to me and get my site pulled or worse yet get my DNS records which links to my name/address and report that over to the local police. Just got to think one step ahead ;)
