Assalamu Alaykum,

In a short while, this forum will be down for about 15-20 minutes inshaAllah while I upgrade to the new forum. The forum has been worked on in the background for a few months now.

Newer look, faster (yet again), easier to use hopefully, cleaner and much more.

As usual, expect some glitches and issues and every little glitch or issue should be reported here immediately. It really helps so don't think it's your computer, instantly blame the site (for now).

Wassalam

What's New

 
Expandable Menu to minimise viewing space if needed
 
Toggle all menus
 
New Post Ratings
 
Previously we have thumbs up and thumbs down. Now I've seen how many don't like replying to posts and most times there's no need to need to leave small remarks. Takes up space so one way to reply with single words is just to click on the these. Nice way to let the poster know too.
 
From left to right....
Like - If you like what you read
Dislike - If you don't like what you read
Agree - If you simply agree like nodding your head
Disagree - If you don't agree with that you read
Winner - If a post tops all other posts, you can class it winner. Not really winner because you can rate every post winner so I guess this is there just to look good
Informative - the "i" icon to state if the post was informative and helped you - a nice way to say "you've taught me something"
Optimistic - The rainbow icon to state if a post you feel is optimistic. A nicer way to say "You wish" or "dream on"
Creative - If a post is creative, smart or clever, you can click this
ABC - I cnt stand bad spellin, shrthnd as if d ppl iz txtin wid a limit of 160 chars. Click this to show bad spelling
Old - Some posts are just simply 'old' or repeats... Let them know : )
 
 
I will add more updates later inshaAllah

New Feature 2:

uIf you have high reputation, you can award some rep points to other members by clicking on their username in the post for options



From there you'll get more options like PM, View Profile & award rep

I'm feeling generous so I might post a Who Am I to award some as an example to the person who guesses correct - Enjoy

This feature is to show appreciation of a post that actually helps you. Don't just give give and give for no reason (unless it's to me)

That's great, I've asked a few times if I could rate a post more than once. Alhumdulillah now I can. In fact I went donating and searched for some memorable ones and MashaAllah, great memories came flying back. If I haven't yet thanked you, then please be patient, InshaAllah I'll be there. You guys have given me a lot (over 2010 reps), now its payback time.

Please don't mind if I've shown my thanks this way, but you guys have one way or the other, touched my heart.

May Allah reward us all with the greatest of his treasures in this world and the akhira. Aameen.

Fundoo man, but the fora on the whole has a very oldish look, perhaps because of the sepia color?

It actually has more colour than previous version. If you mean old look in terms of colour then yep, that was the aim (classic look). Also, using Internet Explorer will kill most of the new changes.. Use Chrome or Firefox (see attachments) - same page loaded on different browsers

Wsalaam,

You cannot delete your own posts. This spoils threads s in the past we've had angry ppl going through all their own posts and just deleting it. If you need something deleted, just let us (myself or an authoriser) know.

Same thing with edit, when we disabled deleting own posts, they started editing and changing it to "..." which again kills the thread. So minor edits just go through, major ones require approval. Always working to keep the forum clean and affective.

Wassalam
