Things I love:
1) New text/link formatting. No more 200-post-long "test" threads and 10-paragraph write-ups on how to embed pictures!! The new way is much more idiot-proof, I think, even if I do have to re-train myself to not automatically post all links in brackets or quotes.
2) Editing posts. No more test threads (again) and yay for having a moment to re-read and edit your post, or reconsider whatever stupid/inflammatory thing you just posted!
3) Previewing posts. No more screwed up formatting, plus a preview button helps teach people how to use the one in the wiki so they don't have to make 15 separate edits to fix a few grammatical errors!
4) Moped riders database. This is flat-out awesome. It's so much easier to find new potential riding buddies.
5) Non-editable author names: no more Targaped name-change nonsense!
6) PM's, following threads, reporting topics... I could go on. There is an absolutely incredible increase in functionality, usability, and general idiot-proofness.
Anyway, in case this post didn't make it apparent, I got logged on and it all works perfectly now, so thank you!! I feel like the biggest crybaby in the world for asking, but is there a way to make my post count reflect posts before the upgrade? I'm guessing that info for my account got lost/reset in the database wilderness somewhere, but if there's an easy way to change it, that would be super awesome.
The only "bug" I've found that nobody has mentioned is wiki-related, and I don't think it's related to the upgrade at all because I've had this problem for a while. If I go to the wiki and want to quickly access an article that I know exists, I will usually type some (distinctive) part of the article's name in the search box. While this sometimes results in me finding the article I want, it also sometimes returns a bunch of mostly-irrelevant articles. For example, I was looking for the Puch 1hp restrictions article. I searched for "Puch 1hp" and got this. I then tried just "1hp" and got no results. Shouldn't a search for "1hp" be returning a title match? It isn't just this article either. A search for "key" seems like it ought to turn up the "woodruff key" article, but nope. These are the best examples I've got right now, but this happened to me fairly regularly before the upgrade as well. I was going to ask why it was doing that, but it dawned on me that both of these articles have a "distinctive" word that's only 3 letters long. I'm guessing the wiki search ignores any words that short unless the word leads directly to an article? Is there any way to change that? There are a fair number of short but important and frequently-used moped words (kit, CDI, jet, gap, FAQ, E50, M46, M48, gas, oil, TDC, BDC, air, RPM, 50V, 50L, AV7, SHA, A3, A35, A55....) that are getting missed if this is the case. Case in point: lots of people want to know about Puch kits. If they search "Puch kit" they'll get results like my first screenshot. Rather than dig through all that, they'll assume there's nothing there and they'll ask in the forums, when in fact there are several articles that would provide them with valuable information. But yeah ... so maybe that's not exactly a bug, but I thought I'd throw it out there now anyway.
