No more custom titles under your name? And the picture attachments on threads is broken as it doesn't have any pics from the thread.

Just went through this two years ago with the loss of the retro-skin until a thread was started on how to get most of it back. I hope that the retro-skin is coming back sooner than later for us long timers who have only ever used the retro-skin.......

Another gripe, and not critical by any means... but...

I liked the auto refresh on the old site (some javascript that refreshed the view) when you navigated between forums, the home page, etc...

I find myself constantly hitting ctrl+r, or f5 to refresh when i go into a thread, then back to the previous page (like for my subscriptions).

Just another "extra step" to get the "same" experience as before... hitting refresh everytime i navigate back out of a thread to see if anything updated because the view is stale (cached) is annoying and pretty easy to fix... (though you may have that behavior set up for performance reasons to reduce page hits on the server...)

Can anyone tell me if huddler started a new forum somewhere? I don't care if it has nothing to do with AVS, I'll join because it was that good. I don't care if it's a knitting forum.....

Like before Huddler, custom user titles are a perk for AVS Club members.

AVS Forum relaunches on vBulletin! Learn what's new—or, more precisely, what's new again—now that AVS has gone back to its roots.

As you've no doubt noticed, AVS Forum has undergone a major transformation. For the last two years or so, AVS has operated using a proprietary software platform developed by the site's owner, Huddler. A few months ago, VerticalScope, a company that specializes in online forums, acquired AVS from Huddler. Since the Huddler platform is proprietary, we've had to move the site to another platform—in this case, a common forum platform called vBulletin (which AVS used before it was acquired by Huddler in 2011).

For those who have been members of AVS for more than three years—or who are members of other vBulletin-based forums (which is most of them)—the new user interface will be old hat. But for those who recently joined AVS and do not hang out on other vBulletin forums, here are some of the major differences you'll see:

- The editor used to enter and edit posts is now like the one used on other vBulletin-based forums.

- Graphics such as photos and screen shots can no longer be simply embedded in a post. They must now be uploaded and their URLs must be pasted into the post.

- Settings and preferences are now in User CP (control panel) rather than My Profile. This includes thread subscriptions.

- The search capabilities are more refined. For example, there is now a built-in Google search option, and you can easily find the threads you've started and comments you've posted by clicking on the magnifying-glass icon at the far right of the main nav bar.

- The main nav bar now includes Active Topics and New Posts tabs.

- Reviews and Articles are now normal threads that behave in the same way as other forum threads.

- Printable thread view is back, letting you print or download threads for reading offline.

Other changes are planned in the coming weeks, such as the return of the Retro skin and fully functional sticky threads, so watch for those.

Of course, it will take some time for everyone to get used to the changes, and there will be bumps in the road as we work out the kinks, so I hope you'll be patient and point out any problems you might encounter in the "welcome back" thread in the Forum Operations Center. But the forums will remain as lively and informative as ever, and we will continue to post professionally written editorial content from an industry-insider perspective.

So come on in, have a look around, and join over a million of your closest friends in the world's largest online community of audio/video enthusiasts. Welcome home!

How do you not get email alerts when your post is quoted by someone?

The old forum had this as an option and I can't seem to find that option here.

I don't remember there was a price with the first VB. I'm missing huddler more and more. Can you fix the subscriptions? I want it like before where it told you how many post were made since your last post.

I use to get one daily e-mail that showed the new and updated threads on the 10 forums on AVS I subscribed to. Now I get 10 separate e-mails from each forum which is annoying. I couldn't find a setting to get back the old way so I ended up unsubscribing to all the forums. Is there a way to get back the old one e-mail update? If not I may end up just not keeping up with AVS which is sad.
