Anyone else not digging this new forum? Just wondering as I did not know until this month the original forum had been taken over... This one feel a little corporate...
Minus some hiccups (Terra's blog issue, Halloween Countdown, PUMPKIN EMOJIS!!!!), this new forum software is leaps and bounds ahead of the old vBulletin software, even if the look and feel is a bit mundane. If you stay around, look at an ad blocker like uBlock or something similar.Anyone else not digging this new forum?

You can change what alerts you receive at https://www.halloweenforum.com/account/preferences. Although I think there are only 4 post related items.I never see ads.
Adblockers are your friend:
If you want an ad blocker for Firefox, Chrome, or Safari, uBlock is here. uBlock blocks all annoying pop-ups and ads. uBlock is more than just a pop up blocker, it also protects your privacy by blocking trackers. Download the uBlock ad blocker for free!ublock.org
Adblock Plus, the most popular ad blocker on Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Android and iOS. Block pop-ups and annoying ads on websites like Facebook and YouTube.adblockplus.org
Pick one, any one, & you'll never see another ad again anywhere.
My only complaint is that you don't get a full forum listing when you come here & if there's a way to be notified of new messages I haven't found it yet. Yeah, there's a little red dot on my icon up there in the right hand corner that notifies you of stuff, but that also gives you "alerts" which is kinda silly since it notifies you of EVERY SINGLE THING in response to any post you've ever made.
So I tend to ignore it which also means I don't see when I have a "conversation" which is what PMs are called now.
At last check I had 114 "Alerts" which are just things like "so&so reacted to your post in..." or "so&so liked your comment in ...". I don't need to be notified of every single thing in relation to what I post.
I totally agree with Frankie's Girl here. The forum is what we make of it. Larry set the standard but it is our responsibility as members to keep the forum active and great. It's still our community guys. Yes, there are things I'm not happy about and yes, we lost some great members (for a variety of reasons) when we went corporate and I wholeheartedly miss them and the old forum but I'm trying to make a concentrated effort to post.And the thing that made Halloween Forum truly great - it's community - is still here. We're still alive and kicking and as long as there are individuals here to create, share, offer help and criticism and ideas and encouragement... Halloween Forum is alive and well.
Absolutely! Wouldn't be Halloween Forum without it....Is there a dark color scheme version of the forums to choose?
Many thanks. Hadn’t realized that there was a Dark Mode. So much better now.Absolutely! Wouldn't be Halloween Forum without it....
When you log in, look for the three little dots next to your avatar up on the top right. Click on the dots, and you'll see a few options for jumping to different site stuff like Forum Listing/Popular/Showcase/Gallery/Advance Search and all the way at the bottom: DARK MODE. Click and bask in cool glow of darkness.
If you're in dark mode already, it will show LIGHT MODE. It will remember what you've chose too, so every time you log in, it will automatically be your chosen mode.
