    Can you tell me why (starting sometime this morning) I'm getting audio & video (mostly for "Noah") with every click in TB? I'm using Google Chrome and haven't made any changes in a while.

    there shouldn't be any sound based ads, next time you see it right click / copy url and paste the result here and we can block it

    Quick question... when switching over to the new forum can I switch my username to something else?

    Hi Pawlie! Nice looking upgrade, but I can't figure out how to reconfigure the threads/forums that I want to show up in the NEW POSTS/NEWSFEED, or more specifically, the ones I DON'T want to show up.

  8. It looks like Soundcloud embed links are not working.

    Why can't I post in the classifieds? It gives me the message: "(You have insufficient privileges to reply here.)"

    Is it still possible to get just a once daily email digest of threads you are subscribed to? I don't want to get an email EVERY time someone posts, just a nice gentle daily reminder to check my subscribed threads.

    I can't place a link in my posts. It tells me why, my like to posts ratio is not greater than 0%. With 11 likes/ 5890 posts perhaps the system is rounding this down to zero. If I stop posting, I'd need 60 likes to get to 1%. If I continue to post without likes I'll never get to post a link. Any way to turn off this requirement?

    Will the links to the TB Wiki's be added back into the top banner?
    Will this upgrade affect the Wiki's?

    You'll need to update your signature - media embeds are not allowed in signatures. The size of the new soundcloud embed is just too large, disrupts the flow of the thread, man ;)

    To embed a soundcloud in a post, just paste the soundcloud link. Or hit the media button in the text editor.

    Links in posts issue is fixed. The wiki is still at wiki.talkbass.com. Will add a link to it soon. Hopefully we'll have a bridge up soon between forum and wiki (unified login).
  15. Great, thanks!

    I hate to say it, but I really like the new site.

    I absolutely hated it when it launched, but after a few days of getting to know it, it is far superior IMO.

    Searching is easy, the new functionality will be useful, etc.

    IMO, anyone that HATES it like I initially did should explore and understand how the new site works. The functionality is there, just in different places.

    I am old school and not a huge fan of change and went from hating it to loving it in a few hours of usage. No point b!tching about the new site until you understand how it works IMO.
    El Spearo and wemmick like this.

    The only thing I don't like about the new site is, I used to be able to set the thread order so when ever I opened a thread, the newest post was at the top (first Post showing). The "Go to First Unread" doesn't accomplish the same thing. If they can add that feature like it was on the old forum, I will be happy.

    Site looks FANTASTIC now!

    Huge plus would be a dark theme. White backgrounds give me headaches at night....I spend too much time on the computer:p
