TFP is now different.

Maybe I'm just weird or expecting things to be as they were, but
somehow it is not the same. A different feel. I guess I was just
used to the old TFP, and even though some of the same themes
are being repeated, something just does not feel right.

Am I wrong?

eh yes and no. For me I spent all most all my time in the Members section, so its kinda wierd being in General Discussion and Tilted Nonsense. But its the people who make the place, and I think we are on the right track.

So far, I am very impressed with the way TFP 4.0 is shaping up. I personally like it.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." – C. S. Lewis

The fonts for the logos and stuff seem to have a real retro feel to them. Kind of like being in a lounge or something. I like it, though.

Give it time. Let folks get back into it, and stuff will settle down. Members will be reopened and I'm sure hal will bring back the other color styles.

As Juan said above, give it time.

Things are being set in place as we speak.
We are lucky Hal and others were able to rebuild this as quick as they did.
There are many details to take care of.

Please be patient, and enjoy.

tfp does feel a bit different.............a few people are still missing........a few people have resolved to change their ways, and grow into new people...........some still grieve for 3.0..........some praise the rebirth as 4.0.........change is scary.........change is good.......tfp changes each day, and with every new member..........this is one reason why tfp is so wonderful.......I do miss the old dark blue default theme.........this new color is growing on me, in a week I might just like it more

As a newbie, I'd like to thank all the brains behind the TFP for their efforts - I only visited vs 3.0 briefly... but I'm liking the place and the people....

I look forward to the further developments and appreciate all the effort!

It does feel a bit different. Probably because people are missing avatars and custom titles, but those are slowly starting to come back, and the reduced weight of trimming tens of thousands of lurkers helps too.

Same thing happened during the transition from TFP v.2 to TFP v.3. Before you know it we'll all have our custom titles and avatars again and things will be better than they were before. I think this is true because when the rebirth of v.3 occurred it took a while for members to sign back up -- I mean I was the 58 member and I resigned up two days after. This time I signed up Saturday AM, probably 16 hours after the site came back on board, and I'm member 1750. The TFP has certainly evolved over the past year and I'm looking forward to seeing where it will be at this time next year....
I've yet to dephile myself...

Actually, there are three things I miss.

1) There are so few avatars (that will change with time)
2) I would like the sandstorm style back (that could change too)
3) My old username (Oh well, get over it)

Other than that, I'm really glad that TFP is back.

I'm just happy it's back. I think it's great that we're all on the same field. A lot of the schlock is gone. The classic boobies threads that we all loved are already back. New threads are started by the minute. The TFP community is back and will be better than ever.

The TFP is ultimately what we make it - and it's a lot more than just how it looks on our monitors. Other than not being able to read <b>Ashton's</b> red text, it looks fine to me (and that's not new). Of course it's different - so is a new pair of shoes - that won't stop me from buying more. Enjoy and contribute!

I agree that it feels different, but not in a bad way. Its a community thats always evolving, and this is just another phase. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the fun.
"The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there’s little good evidence.

Nothing ever stays the same forever. Even without a crash, some new people would have joined and some veterans would have parted.

I think any of the current changes will seem less drastic over time. I do miss avatars and custom titles, but the heart of TFP is still the same.

Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to bring it back.

I miss the black and green theme that no one seemed to use but me...

However, I realized something - I can have a huge post per day count now, as I deserve. In v 3.0, I lurked for almost a year, so when I did start posting, even at 500 posts I was only counted as posting 1.46 posts a day. Yay for new beginnings, eh?

The big thing I notice is how so many people talk about whats different, where our avatars went, and where our posts went...hey, I'm guilty of it too. One thing I'm noticing that hasn't changed are the great people, great conversations, and generally everyones eagerness to help out other members...just a few of the differences.

I like being able to revisit the old issues that were raised and then finished with in the v3 General discussion; you can see how peoples views have changed a little bit.

As for the style, I always quite liked the old green anyway.

In time we'll settle back into the community feel, just think of it as breaking in a pair of good quaility leather boots.

I must say though, chat last night was absolutely intriguing and full of great laughs
I guarantee, any coldness being felt from mods and admins is due to things such as spamming to get post counts and avatars back. We'd love to be all nice and fun, but when people who should know better are posting 76 times in one day in a single thread in Tilted Nonsense, it tends to get on our nerves, and rightfully so. Hopefully the removal of post counts being listed in each post and the removal of the Top 30 posters page will change some of this. I'd sure like to stop having to chastise people who have been good members in the past for spamming the boards.
