salaam

So what do you guys think? Anything to add or remove? New smileys? Avatars? New forums, old forums? Things you miss from the old board?

Sr Kathy, that sux I knew that was going to happen to someone. If that happens you should click on back, and control-c the text. then login again and post the text again. When you login it will ask how long you want to login so if you put 60 minutes, after 60 minutes it automatically logs you out.

(A good thing to do for any posting online is if you type something very long or important is to control-c your text so it stays in memory in case anything happens in posting. Then you can always paste it back if you need it again!!) 

I just changed the login session time so hopefully that will help too.



anwar: i didn't add the 5 latest threads because i think people only check that every so often and don't bother to read anything else.

 peace be upon you  Sister Kathy,

I have the same problem, with my email.  I have learned to always copy my text, so if I get logged out, I can just paste the text in a new email.  That seems less complicated than Jannah's suggestion, but I must admit I am really not a wiz at the computer.  Embarrassed

It is good, enough of the old one to keep me from wandering off, and enough of new to discover.

Salaam,

Nothing to constructive to add right yet as I'm still trying to figure out what all the forums are for. Perhaps there are too many sections??? Or is it just me?

Wsalaam,

Yes there are a lot of sections, not all are used yet, but I think it's there so we can expand. The other board was just 8 boards and there was like nowhere to go! These are like little rooms and if people are interested they can wander to the different ones Smiley

wsalam,

Sorry dude this edition sucks, liked the old one better,
but thats just me I guess
 :wsalam:

 iagree ... lol ... I was just afraid to be the first to say it  Undecided

I really liked the feel of the other edition:
It had a warmer feeling to me & a little more user friendly on this end ...
** I miss the main/home page **



(but I'm trying to give it time ... seeing if it will grow on me a little)

hmm that's funny cuz you only posted once on the old board back in june 2007 ?!!

it might have been "warmer" and "friendlier" because only 3 people were posting. lol.  this board has a lot more features and potential for the future. i'd like to go back to a time where there were no mobile phones and we had friendly corner stores that sold two items too, but times change, the world grows and so do we. we can't go back, but we can look to the future so any suggestions on how to make it warmer and friendlier would be helpful.

salaam,

I find in my 'professional opinion', Doctors are resistant to change. I see it all the time here at the hospital! Smiley Sorry Bro, you made this one too easy! You know I love you! Don't hate. But seriously, I still think that there are a lot of mini sections that probably won't get used. Let's see though- you never know. Plus people may get bored and want to 'travel' about. Let time tell.

peace

It's funny because I actually like the new look much better than the old one. More simple and less cramped, so it's easier to maneuver through. Plus everything is categorized instead of one big box crammed full of smileys and arabic text.

I guess I'm a sucker for efficiency  Grin

As-Salaamu `alaykum, 

Congratulation on the new look guys, it really looks nice Masha`Allah:)

However, I think that there are too many sections as well ... perhaps we can work on that instead insha`Allah. 

Btw, are you planning to put "Welcome to the Madina!" announcement back up on the front page?

W`salaam.

At first it was overwhelming and I thought I was not going to like it at all, but its actually growing on me!  I like how the main page does not have too many choices and the subcategories are actually manageable once you get used to them.

Asalamualaikum!

Personally I love it!

t is good, enough of the old one to keep me from wandering off, and enough of new to discover
I completely agree..
I really like how you categorized everything ,it seems more organized and simple and because of the categories the mind give sbirth to whole new ideas for topics/posts.

ok i wanted to know can anon only write in the anon section now?....what if anon has a reply to some other topic in another section?

one thing I ddint like was the sisters and brothers only just because I noticed when we let ea other go to ea others rooms alot of guys replied on the sisters section on womans issues because of experience from wives/sisters ect and vice versa.. so sometimez i would be hesitant to write a sisters issue on sisters only because i know the brothers can also might have good input due to the experince of thier wives and sistes

ok another thing i dont like the mandatory intro! well actually i do for new members but notus ole members ...as you see im avoiding it as much as i can . comeon everyone knows us already !!! if they dont, they will thru our posts

ok salaam and jazak Allahu kair
you did a good joband im overall really happy w the new board!

wsalaam,

I forgot about the "all". I'll look around to see if that's an option somewhere. I don't think this one has it, but it has the 1..2..3 pages.

We haven't gotten around to putting up the "anonymous posting" for any thread. For now the Anonymous board is completely anonymous for anyone to write anything they like there.

The brothers and sisters room will be completely separate soon inshaAllah.

As for introductions, there's just no compromise on that. Introductions are mandatory. It isn't fair that a new person comes in and has to do it and an "old" person doesn't have to or vice versa. It's also not fair that some people do it and others don't. So everyone does it. Everyone knows each other. That's fair.   shaykh

salaam i forgot to put my smiley wink when i wrote about the intro comment....

hmm i think they sister and brother is already separate? Im not sure if you understood what I was saying.. I was sayng that I  dont like sister and brother only board.. I liked it when we could go to ea others board just because if I have a sisters type issue I wouldnt just want sisters to answer because i know that brothers can also give good feedback due to their expereinces with their wives and sisters and female relatives.
But then again you have other places we can put it if we want bros to answer too so its not a big issue
