SpaceEngineer, I've done an HTML conversion of the space flight school manual from the epub version with Calibre because the code is much cleaner this way.
How would you like to proceed, you mentioned embedding the text. Was your intention to use an <embed> tag, or simply copy-paste the text into manual section?
The old epub version is now unreachable.

How do you suggest such change of website and forum tools could be managed? As explained, old posts and forum users can't be imported.

For information Forum rules still does not work. Dice is clicked, it adds # at the end of the current url (example : http://forum.spaceengine.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&p=377#).

Yes I read :

Oh, and the "Forum Rules" button doesn't seem to do anything. Then again maybe it's my school's internet being weird. :P

Testing non-default font:

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog


The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
[font=Times New Roman]The quick brown
fox jumps over the lazy dog
[/font]

Ok, Since many of you like to use different fonts in posts, and recently I'm seeing many unreadable:
The first three sentences were written right away and only after I selected the text I wanted to change, and I chose another font.

With the other sentences I chose in advance a font, then I wrote the sentence, hit return, chose another font, I wrote, hit return, changed font, I wrote...
As you can see the last sentence lost the font, because I was writing the text as if I were using a standard writing software, and the WYSIWYG editor here nested a closing font tag. You can see it in your own posts if you view the source of your message (Ctrl+Shift+s).
[/font][/font]



The point is, this is not a writing software but an enhanced forum editor, and many editors behave pretty the same in many forums around.
So if you really must to use another font in your posts, pay attention: write down all the text you want, and then select and change font just before submitting the post.
Also, there's a preview button, use it. ;)

the scrolling bar on the right is too blurry. its grey-black on black line. almost invisible. i know there is arrows to press so you will reach the bottom of the page but i think the bar should be in different color so ppl can hold it and scroll down the page as they like instead of mouse weel for seconds to reach the bottom  :)

I always prefer to use the source code editor mode (the very first button in the editor menu). It gives much more control over the WYSIWYG editor, and I can always switch back to WYSIWYG to "preview" the message.

Math codes don't work  :( When I click it, it asks me for a video URL

I have two requests:

- Who is responsible for the website (who is the contact person)?

- At least as long as the new site is being tested, could you please use non-minimized versions of CSS and JS or at least (if you use scripts to generate them) allow to trigger this through a GET parameter or so? It's impossible to test easily, if everything is a one-liner.

Please don't. No issue with emojis being used by whoever wants to use them but please do keep the good old yellow faces going strong.

Also, the background here is uncomfortably dark. I much prefer the one in the old forum. Can we customize it at will?

(I'll get to upload my profile pic once I find it... or maybe I'll make a new one)

I think the plans are bad and the old website was much better, here is some things that can make the new website better:
Don't close the old website, because by closing the old website, SE will lose many users,
The flat theme is boring, don't use flat theme instead, because it will make the look rare, and nice[DOT]

Watsisname, yes, use blue borders, because the website would be brighter[DOT]

It's nonsense. The software will be used anyway. People search webpages because they seek help or advice regarding Space Engine, they want to know about it, then they stick around forums if they find it worthy. It's not really the appearance that make it so, it's the users behavior and contents. There are forums it's not worth going in because of lack of rules of conduct or users rudeness, but the software to which the forum is related is thriving nonetheless.

God yes.
I genuinely am having a LOT of trouble reading this new Forum as the background for every single box is black. I have mild vision acuity problems and it's horrific to use. Please please please give us a way to change the theme of the Forum from our user profile. Otherwise I can't see myself ever being able to use this place :S
