Two things... I think you should add a home button at the top bar and that it should show recent topicts anywhere like the old tamatalk.

There is a "home" button! It's at the top where it says "TamaTalk" in gray and you can just click on it to go back to the home page. As for the recent topics column, it's still there, just only on the home page now, not on every page like it was previously. :)

It's very different! When I logged on, I'm like, "Whoa, this is not the same TamaTalk!" Very nicely done! :D :D :D (Wow, even replying is weird! ;) )

Me too! But I seriously love the mew Tamatalk. It's the best!

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the TT update.
I think it's cool, but it's definitely different, and something to get used to. I kind of find it really... busy, if you will.
I'm also kind of sad my old PMs I had saved in my previous inbox aren't around anymore.

As for the Chat... I'm not sure I like it. Without the colours, it's harder to distinguish users, and it kind of lacks the unique-ness that the old system(s) had.
This part is probably just me, but I find this chat a lot slower on my computer.

Like most updates it has its ups and downs, but good job, Admin. :)

The PMs thing is. Still in the works. All PMs will still be there it's just that they need to be updated to anew database format. I had the update running for almost 24 hours and then it just stopped so I have to redo it again. I had to turn off PMs because it stops anytime somebody accesses their inbox. Annoyiing? Yes. Inconvenient? Definitely! But it only has to happen once so it is just a temporary pain. I'll keep everyone posted.

Unrelated note is that I am typing this using the mobile version of TT... Very nice and much faster than before!

The new TamaTalk is pretty cool! It's a bit of a learning curve, but it's great! The newest thing I discovered is that when you click inside the text input box of Fast Reply, it opens up virtually the whole regular reply UI on the page! Oh yeah, and you can quote more than one person at once much more easily now!
Sorry for the jargon...
Very well done, Admin. I love it!

Just out of curiosity, but is the little plus button on the bottom right corner of people's posts similar to a like button? Because that would be awesome O:

It's not quite a Like button... That is the reputation button... We haven't worked out the finer details of reputation yet but it is essentially a community version of karma. We still have karma which is "official" kudos from staff to people... Now with reputation you get to give reputation points to members who post useful stuff. As the points add up their score goes higher and higher. You should be able to see the reputation box on the profile page. The catch? There is a limit to the number of reputation points that can be given out in a day.

Well I hope everyone sees this announcement... I am so sorry about this. I am not trying to be mean by introducing all these cool new features and then taking them away after a couple of days! :P Please know I am working as hard as I can to keep these interruptions to a minimum.

Pros:
It doesn't looks so plain
More awesome features
Cons:
Laggy in my dial-up
Makes my browser freeze for a few seconds when I scroll or move mouse

Personally, even though this has more features, old TT is better
and the new CP is harder to find things
geehhhh.... there's only one Chat room?
I don't like the updates very much anymore.

Nothing happened to the Karma system - it's the same as it was before.

There is an additional system called "Reputation" - Admin has explained it already - (a few posts above): http://www.tamatalk....dpost&p=3029845

Is that what you were asking about?

To be honest, the changes to the whole site are a lot to take on board in one go... just keep browsing and experimenting and I am sure you will find answers to your questions or you will figure things out ;)

It just takes a little time for the site to become more familiar, is all :)

Oh, it is still the same? I couldn't find mine or anyone else's karma statuses, so I thought that Admin got rid of it altogether. But I guess not. That's good. I like the karma system, it's something no other site has.

Can someone also explain to me what an active post is and why everyone's active post counts differ from their regular post counts?

You know what... I'm glad you said that. I went back and checked the settings and it looks like I forgot to switch on the option to allow everyone to see their own karma! Sorry for that. You should be able to see it now.
