Welcome to the new AP 5.0!

Postby Matt » Sun Feb 12, 2012 12:31 pm

After more than 4 years of this current design, it's time for something new and improved! As you've already noticed, AP has been redesigned, both on the front end and behind the scenes. Several improvements have been made to make AP more streamlined, organized and easier to use. Along with that, a ton of new features have gone live.

  • Team Database - add your team, build a roster
  • New and Improved Classified Ads - more options, better visibility on ads
  • Updated forum software - a bunch of new features came with upgrading, too many to list
  • Improved search - better overall, plus a whole bunch of other options to search photos, videos, users and more
  • New Events Calendar - allows RSVP, private events too
  • Video Portal - YouTube integrated, surf AP videos and popular channels all from AP

Have a look around to see what all is new. I'm also happy to hear your feedback and your suggestions.

We will have several new forums, galleries and other sections going up today and through the week. I will be slowly bringing over all of our old gallery images, fear not, that oldschool stuff lives on. You might notice some reviews going up too, be mindful of the "publish date" listed on these, while they show as new posts they might still be old balls.

I'm 100% sure I might have forgotten something, an odd permission setting here or there. If anything seems out of sorts, just shoot me a PM or reply here to state your problem. "How to" information will be going up about how to use the various new features, of course most of you guys will catch on quick, for the rest of you slow bastards I'll be following up with helpful hints so that light bulb will appear over your head.

As always, thanks for making AP your home community!

I hate right-side avatars/userinfo. Other than that, i like it.


Edit: Scratch that. I am now officially only going to use AP for hosting events.

If in 10 mintues i've found this many things i dislike about it, i doubt i'm going to come to like it anymore in an additional amount of time.

That bothered me too. I almost changed it, but then I realized it's better when zoomed in on a mobile phone to have all of the info on the left hand side. You don't constantly swipe right to see the actual post text. But still, it's been hard to get used to.

i like all the new features. especially the fact you can block people, so you dont ever have to look at their posts.

I also love the rsvp system for events.

good job matt and all the beta testers.
