The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Your reply was excellent though.
    As Travis said, this new version of the forum software is a significant new release and the old one was.. well.. an old one

    As for the design, we conciously wanted to give the forums the same design as the home page and therefore even if I could, I wouldn't make the old design available because sometimes you just gotta move on and get used to a change

    This is a bug in the current version which will get fixed in the next release (a week or so away)

    I actually just put in a temp fix for it, let me know if it works for you.

    I like this new look. More subtle.

    The poll doesn't have an option for "steak".
    me: so this is the "pump" you speak of
    me: I could never figure out what people were talking about

    Not too fond of the color scheme, anyway we can get custom ones that we can change in our user settings?

    I wish each post could alternate in color if possible (lighter/darker/lighter/darker) and don't really like the side borders
    My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.

    I've always been here. I just don't post as much ... but you'll be seeing more of me -- not just now but in the next few months.

    And when my finances stabilize this summer, I'll be dusting off my journal.

    Don't worry, you're not going mad and you didn't make a mistake, so you still have one to make this month lol

    The forum search isn't visible because we're missing a major navigation bar at the top of the site. This nav bar was on the old site and contains the following:

    * New Posts
    * Private Messages
    * FAQ
    * Calendar
    * Community
    o Groups
    o My Albums
    o Friends & Contacts
    o Member List
    * Forum Actions
    o Mark Forums Read
    o General Settings
    o Edit Profile
    * Quick Links
    o Subscribed Threads
    o Open Contacts Popup
    o View Site Leaders
    o Who's Online

    On top of it not showing, we also need to rebuild the search index (each time a post gets made, it creates an index and this is what the search uses to return the results) So even if it were showing, it wouldn't work.

    Both should be done within the next day or so, we're getting there

    And just for proof, here is the direct link to the forum search (remember it will not work yet) http://www.wannabebig.com/forums/search.php

    We can definately put this back. The new style options in this version are a bit buggy, but with next weeks upgrade it will be easier to do stuff like this, so watch this space..

    I honestly don't like the new forum. It does look more modern and clean at first glance. But I find it more difficult to read and everything sort of blends together. But it might just time to get use to.

    I think once we get the alternating post colours in it will help seperate out each post...

    I just wish I could figure out why some of the functions don't work for me. It seems I'm the only one experiencing these issues.

    Hey, things specifically do not work for you?

    Have you tried from another computer to see if it is a cookie related issue?

    So now that I've got over the shock and played around a bit, I'm just not convinced.

    I think it looks quite cool, and the new functionality is great, but the style is unclear and it's hard to clearly see what I'm looking at sometimes. The forum upgrade is good but the style needs changing. Have you thought about different colours maybe? Something with more contrast might make it clearer. Also, I agree with the others about the blue bars, they're just unnecessary.

    It shows potential but needs some work.

    I hear ya... I'm definately going to be making some more detailed changes to the style once we get some of the bigger stuff addresses and upgraded to 4.02. The overall design will stay the same (keeping with the design of the main site) but subtle changes to post colours, some adjustment of the columns etc will make things easier to read and stand out more. The reason I am holding off, is 4.02 is a fairly big release too so I don't want to have to do things twice.
