In case you guys missed it, which is certainly possible since I'm not sure how many of you venture to the Feedback Forum, webby has posted about an update FF is currently undergoing and transitioning to shortly.

I will be updating the forum to a brand new modern software platform before the NFL season starts. The new forum will have a modern look with a responsive mobile design that automatically adjusts to work great on any device and includes a host of exciting new features:

- Improved posting features with automatic embedding of links from services like twitter and youtube.
- An extensive notification system that members can customize to their needs.
- Ignore and like features so you can ignore members you donít want to see and like high-quality posts.
- Detailed profile pages with much more customization and informtaion.
- @member mentions to address specific members in a given topic.
- Improved quoting features so no more mess of quote trees.
- Improved search, private messaging, and much more.

FAQ:

When will the forum transition over to the new software platform?
We are currently in the alpha stages of testing the platform. We are moving to beta testing this week. If the beta test goes well the transition should happen in about a month. The goal is to have everything complete before the NFL season starts.

What do I need to do to get ready for the transition?
Update your profile with a current email address. When the transition happens youíll receive an email to the address in your profile with your temporary password for the new forum platform. You can then setup your account on the new forum platform.

How can I help beta test the new forum?

I enjoy the current forum. What if I donít want to learn a bunch of new features?
Donít worry. All the new features are optional. You can use them all or just the basic posting features. The basic features and structure of the new forum are very similar to this forum. Youíll be comfortable with it in no time at all. Our focus is great football talk and that isnít going to change.

As someone that has gotten to take a look around the new version of FF, the step forward is pretty significant. It's infinitely more user-friendly on mobile and the ability to embed tweets and videos is pretty big moving forward.

This is great news and I'm glad to hear it! Excited for the changes


To be completely honest with you all -- through all the years, I really love this site. I know it's dated and it's not as active (Titans board is still pretty active, but the larger site not as much) as it used to be, but I still rely on this site to have great talk around Titans football with you guys. I feel that other Titans forums and reddit lack the knowledge that's here and am glad that we can continue to have a place for us to discuss Titan football and hopefully, finally, experience a great team together.

Agreed. I'm also hopeful that the overall activity (even though the Titans forum in general hasn't really gone through as much of a dip) will see a nice bump. Navigating FF on an iPhone has always been a bit of a pain, given how many people only use their phones, the new software should be a big help.

Anyways, I encourage you guys to sign up for the beta test. It's a chance to get a good start on testing out the new features and to help build up the new version of Titania.

Love this site but it's been in need of a new makeover.

Have to make sure there's no typos in the email you insert and it could send it to spam. When I updated mine to my yahoo address it sent it to spam mail.

If I can't use the subSilver then I'm not sure I could handle using this site anymore Laughing

I also have been able to take a look around the forum.
It is pretty snazzy. It is very mobile friendly.
Also the ability to post videos and twitter posts is such an upgrade.


It looks a lot cleaner and I think it will make posting a lot more fun and easier.

No worries if it isn't allowed/Webby doesn't want you to, but can you share some screenshots of the new look?

If it makes you feel better, the new color scheme is closer to subSilver than traditional FF.

Honestly not sure if I can. Just sign up for the beta, webby will probably be pulling more people over in the next couple days. It's not really a test at this point, just getting used to everything.

The look itself is pretty standard. On a page-to-page and thread-to-thread basis, it looks very similar to FF just with a different color scheme (a lot more blue). Still have sigs, still have avys, still have your post count. Almost all of the differences are functionality based rather than visual. The notification system is great. Lets you know whenever you're quoted, tagged or someone likes your post without being obtrusive. Mobile is where you notice the biggest difference. Everything scales to the size of the browser, which was a huge problem with this version of FF.

But really, KT, TL and I need more people to talk to, so sign up. Laughing
