    a couple of things

    I notice some Black on Blue fonts i.e. in Groups Uncategorized Snow Play

    Default sort for the Snow Play social group has changed to ascending date so we don't see latest contribution right away. Instead we got to go to the last page of the conversation.
    Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.

    iPad display is perfect now. That was fast! Droid (with Dolphin browser) is too. Much better mobile experience even with the full site. Nice!

    I tried to see If I could change that being the Groups creator but no such luck I also cant figure out how to make a group icon avitar either.

    Anyone been able to find the User Command Post? Can we still give greens?

    Love how we can embed videos now!

    The member list is available fairly quickly from the |Forums| tab, and then Community -> Member List. I largely took the defaults from vBulletin, figuring that, as a UI developer myself, they had put a fair amount of effort into improving their UI. If you use the Mount Washington Observatory forums, you are already used to vBulletin 4.

    There are some places where the font-on-backgrounds are not perfect. I will go through them over time. The forums and PMs look decent (IMO) and that was my goal.

    I didn't do anything, so that is interesting. Maybe a proper mobile style sheet finally loaded? I am not yet a mobile or tablet user myself.

    Greenies are available via the little star below every post. You can view your greenies under "Settings" available at the top right of the page.

    There are a handful of ways to find things - I didn't take anything away.

    I fixed the dark-on-dark for "My Profile" and I think likewise for user groups. Brambor, can you confirm?

    The Font appears to by fine in the user groups how do we make it so the newest messages appear first like it used to? Being the groups creator I couldnt find a way myself to change it. Also it appears that you can change the group icon but I couldnt figure that out either

    Iconicity!

    We have no "favicon" for bookmarks, tabs, etc.

    Tim, if you have an icon you want to use, just point me to it or email it to me, and I can create all the necessary formats and resolutions as well as provide you with the REL tags to put in the HEAD section so that mobile devices, web browsers, etc. can all pick it up, and the traditional favicon.ico to put in the server's DocumentRoot.

    I have one. I forgot to set the board variable for favicon. I don't have access to the installation from work, so I will get to it tonight. It looks "right" on my computer because I had set it for the test site, and the browser is reusing the cached copy for now. That's why I missed it.

    Incidentally, I am entirely in favor of artistic contributions from other members, like the favicon, or if you are an experienced vBulletin style creator, or the banner image (which is mine from Moosilauke this winter.) The banner image should be a view from the top of something, but it can be updated once per season and could be from the ADKs or CATs too - doesn't have to be from the Whites.

    Tim, wondered where the current banner came from...Really nice. We could even run a View from the Top contest for banner for a given period of time.
    I'm sure we have enough talented members who might assist with the appearance of the forums, skins, etc.

    That is my photo, from the summit of Moosilauke. It is a long rectangular crop from this full-sized photo:

    The calendar won't display 2012, it stops at Dec 2011. The current date is good so I'm not sure what would cause that.
