Is there anyway to show new uploads during the last 24 hours or last 7 days?
I've looked at the Downloads tab and there's a What's New section but I cannot scroll pass the 10 items or so.

good point

Is there a possibility to add a spoiler/show button option when creating a post. Now I gotta manually type out those tags myself.

Hahaha, made you apply pressure on your left mouse button :P

I enjoy the new layout.. it's enticing..you load up the site and BAM you immediately see what hyperspin is about... I also see that our French Partners are now ex-partners ? that was short :P

I'm getting used to it. I don't like how so many topics are called questions now. and it always shows the first post at the top of every page that you need to scroll past to be able to jump to other pages. And instead of Reply you hit Answer Question to post etc... all a bit obnoxious.

Well you gave me a lot of things to work on this week guys. I had an extended family weekend that I owed them after the long couple weeks I had but I will be making some changes and posting them based on the feedback

I wonder if I'm seeing a bug. Quotes that I made in an earlier post are showing up every time I go to make a new post. Have to delete them every single time.

Once or twice even pics that I attached earlier showed up again, had to thrash them.

 

Also, where is the info for the flag coming from? I have a japanese flag, although I'm not Japanese and not living in Japan? As I used to live there, is it from an IP-address at some point?

This works really well. Takes a little time but gives you lots of options. 

 

If it's easy...

Maybe a sort by most downloaded filter would be good. Same with the overview box of top monthly DL's and top all time authors I mentioned before. If it's easy would be good.

I clicked on Activity tab but no Downloads option there.  All I see is "All Activity, My Activity Stream, Unread Content, and Content I Started".

Where can I find Downloads Activity?

The chat not working is dissapointing but I will live lol.  

But one thing that seems awful to me is when I am going through some threads, it repeats the first post  of the thread on every new page.. Check out the Aeon Nox thread.  The first post is a huge post talking about the progress of the thread.  So I need to scroll through that 80 times since the thread is 80 pages long.

Thanks a lot for your hard work, Circo!

I noticed the following thing: In this tutorial there is the table with Common XML Coding Values. It seems that the use of this table is lost, since the XML values like 

&

are converted automatically.

There is a MASSIVE SECURITY risk - I am logging in randomly as other users simply by refreshing the page. My original account is skeeveo - I appear to have full access to other peoples accounts. Including this one!

I do not know what is causing this.

I am currently unable to post in certain threads( Hyper-marquee / EDS and a few others including a few i raised recently )  

There is no text field at the bottom of the page. I heard of a few others experiencing this also. 

Edit: I was just logged in as DrDoom which is not my account i would like to second this post:

It looks nicer I guess, but more cluttered too.

Everything seems less user friendly, but gives more options or filters. Not sure which is better. The site is still a clutter of too many forums/sub-forums for no real reason, but that has nothing to do with the change.

I can't for the life of me figure out how to upload anything anymore... or even see what is available, search for it, find it etc...

Not sure why you're having trouble with that. The Downloads menu on the toolbar has sections for media, 3rd party apps, etc and you just select what system/category on the left side. The Submit Files option in the Downloads menu shows the Upload Here section then you pick a section and click Submit File button. To upload a file into a post you just drag and drop.

Thanks. Didn't realize I had to choose a category to get to an upload screen. Not very intuitive as those categories look like they are for searching the downloads and not for selecting a place to upload. 

Things seems to be buried one extra layer deep compared to the older site.

Would it not be better Hyperlist/Databases ?, I would never thought of clicking that for databases
