Big changes!!

Change of plans.

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/5...poned-1765575/



This thread will remain open for people to laugh at us until a new thread is created for specific questions and suggestions regarding our move to Vanilla forums.

We were being forced to move from this version of vbulletin and Vanilla was the best solution . I would need others to explain the technicalities. Chuck can give a better answer in the coming days. If you're still interested, remind us later.

Re: Big changes!!

is there a night mode?

i never thought I'd say this before, but I suddenly appreciate the 2p2 UI for the first time seeing the alternative

will tapatalk automatically migrate over?

Re: Big changes!!

Could someone please post a link to the really old 2+2 forum site that has posts from the greats like Tom Dwan when they were learning?

Are the old 2+2 threads gone forever? I've never been able to find anything here or on the archive sites that Google leads to.

Since you guys own that content it would be cool if you posted it on the new forum as a classic 2+2 archives section. Or even as an e-book.

I really don't like this new format https://twoplustwo.vanillacommunitie...48160/hi-there
Is there a way to keep the classic version skin like this on Vanilla?

I'm also afraid all the older people who don't like change won't like it, and they are a substantial part of the community.

I know this isn't a democracy, but can you take a poll to gauge customer reaction?

Thank you, I love 2+2 and don't want it to get worse.

Re: Big changes!!

On a huge thread like this one: https://twoplustwo.vanillacommunitie...r-player-vlogs , what is the easiest way to read the most recent post? Please don't tell me you have to look at the first post from years ago every time and then scroll down and click the pages button to read the most recent posts.

Dude it looks like you guys just grabbed a random template starter pack off github and you just rammed your database in it without any vaseline. WITHOUT ANY VASELINE!!

I hope this goes smoothly & wish the best of luck to devs/ownership. Another forum I used to be incredibly active on did a similar transition to Vanilla that was...not easy.

Re: Big changes!!

Good thing this isn't 10 years ago, when I spent huge amounts of time on here. We'll be fine, I guess.

I like it. The current 2+2 layout always looked dated to me.

We had no real choice about making this change. We'll certainly do what we can to make changes within the new software to accommodate everyone the best we can.

Re: Big changes!!

I think 2+2 has the best looking forums on the internet today so this is really bad news.

I get that it may be necessary though, but the new version in that link looks beyond terrible.

Hopefully it is possible to customize it to look better though - a skin looking like 'Slick' and making it stretch to the full width of the window would improve it significantly.
