Is "community reputation" related to likes?

Yes - the board has always has had a like to value system. It is just more on display now

Can't like this post because of that.

Is there a way to be able to see the board-code directly when posting rather than the GUI?

No, it's a WYSIWYG editor. BB Code is deprecated in these new versions. (Some of it still works but it's more or less been phased out.)

Click on the Source button - top left of the reply box.

It's not present on my editor and neither should it be. That button's for trusted groups because it allows the user to enter HTML and PHP, which might be malicious. It's controlled by the setting "Can post HTML?" under Members > Groups > (pencil icon for relevant group) in the Control Panel.

Yeah - I turned off "can post html" ages ago

Can I be a trusted something or other*? I hate WYSIWYG and I promise the worst thing I know how to do in html is the blink tag I haven't used since the mid-90s.**

 

*I'm mostly kidding about this.

**This part is true.

Am I blind or is there no button for inserting an image?  That's like 90% of my posts and it's a real drag to type img tags every time.

Hey - are you guys seeing who likes your posts? (Like the old way the board did it)

Right now I am just seeing a total number and I get a notification that "Somebody" liked my post

But when I look at the reputation option - it shows names being displayed.

So I am just wondering if it is a notification I turned off or if it is not working for everyone

 

I'm seeing names.  But then one of us is a hard-working bootstrapper who earns their likes in the free-market and the other is a lifetime moderator-class establishment Oligarch who accepts support from hidden bot formulas and super-like-delegates.

Can't seem to find the theme options after choosing the Nise Black/Blue theme, it's like reliving my shroom infused adolescence. 

It's still in the same spot, the font color is just nearly identical to the bg color so it's hard to see.

I figured this one out - for some reason the option to view who liked posts was turned off for admins (along with a few other settings)

Weird

Well - I can now totally see who is trying to avoid The List

Another thing I'm noticing is that when using your browsers back button, the board is still recognizing that you have read a thread and un-highlighting it as having unread posts.  Where it wouldn't do that before.

 

This sure is a slick little update.

Is it too late to ask you to up the number of messages allowed to be stored?

Jesus - what the hell are you keeping in there?

I bumped it up to 75 for members - I am not going beyond that.

This board already has enough wasted space to begin with

I don't know, stuff? Me trying to borrow a video game from Tim from 3 years ago. A haiku. Remedial Wrestling talk that never went anywhere. Stuff about Buddy Rose? 

I'm just too lazy to delete stuff.

Is the name change feature gone? I didn't intend to be stuck with this one.

The little icon gimmick that appears in one's tab or bookmark for DVDVR - get rid of that generic shite, make it, like, Dusty's sploch or Abbie's boot or KNagasaki UK's third eye or something...

I must say I like the NISE BLACK BLUE Theme.  It is a wonderful sight to behold.
