    Welcome back to UKMIX!


    If you're reading this, you've clearly found your way back to UKMIX - that old proverb of you don't know how much you miss something until it's gone has really hit home for me personally in the 5 days we've been offline! Cosmetically, the site hasn't changed too much (those changes will come in due course though - we are now able to modify styles for e.g.), but there are significant changes to functionality:


    • The ability to insert tables into posts.
    • The ability to use different fonts and an increased selection of smileys.
    • The ability to upload attachments.
    • The ability to type your post in both plain text and html.
    • The ability to embed an increased number of social networking sites.
    • Quick reply now automatically updates without the need to refresh the page.
    • Auto-save functionality (dependent on browser) when making posts.
    • The ability to tag users.
    • The ability to ignore users.
    • The ability to create groups.
    • The ability to use the user profile functionality.
    • The ability to create and maintain blogs.


    ** Please note - some of the above functions, and many of the new functions are Premium User functionalities only **

    And so much more! I'll let you all discover for yourselves but if you come across something not obvious or worth a share, please post in this topic so that other users can see!

    Some points:


    • I've reworded our rules and guidelines, I'd strongly advise everyone to read over them by clicking here. There are changes to our warnings/banning system - please refresh yourselves so you understand what is expected of you.
    • Avatars haven't transferred over, as I mentioned over at old UKMIX - at the moment, the system doesn't provide for me enforcing a minimum sized avatar (only maximum). However, I would like avatars to be consistent and uniform across the site - as a reminder, that means everyone must have a 150 x 150 pixels avatar - please make sure you comply with this when uploading yours. If I spot any that don't, I'll remove them.
    • Private messages haven't transferred over in folders - instead, they've transferred over directly into your inbox. Therefore, if like me you like a tidy inbox, you'll need to work through your inbox to re-categorise everything. Annoying, but minor all the same - at least the messages have come over!
    • The Premium Users functionality is set up - I'll be publishing details very soon!
    • There are currently no banned users - what this means is that if you reading this as a former banned user, the door is open for you to make a return to UKMIX. My only ask is that you pick up with me privately via PM beforehand.


    Any queries or feedback, please post in here - I'm actively looking for feedback on functionality or cosmetic issues with the site, there might be many bits that have been missed. Please post them in here.

    @Wayne... not sure if the tagging works, is it premium?

    Auto-save just flashed up!

    The new “busyness” of the forum main pages will take a little while to get used to but so far so good. Good to be back!

    Can’t wait for all the banned members to come crawling back!

    PS. Can’t see any emojis on my iPad?

    Thank goodness for the Twitter account giving us updates. So good to be back online again.

    I also find it's running slow but it's only been back online for an hour so I can live with this (for now lol). If it started logging me out by itself I'd be more gutted with something like that. lol

    Looking forward to experimenting with these new features too. Big thanks to Wayne, Lars and everyone else who have worked tirelessly to make this happen.

    Can the survivors forum be made visible again from the main forums page?

    Question, there used to be a "view your posts" button. Is it gone?
