Now We Really Did it screenshot
Yes it took me one week, but here's the second attempt to the Welcome Message with some updates, features and generally my personal notes to our most loyal members.

But before I begin, I would like to thank you all for your support and gratitude. I've spent insane amount of time building the new AudioZ and when I see how wonderful some members react on it, it's really the best payment to my soul.

Read Rules
First of all, please read the rules. It is very sad how little of you actually did it.
I'll be honest - usually i don't read rules on other web-sites; but if i have a question, i will sure look into Rules/FAQ before contacting administration.

Most of the questions you can ever have are already explained in the Rules.


New Domain
From now on AudioZ will be using one primary domain - www.AudioZ.eu
- all other domains will redirect to this one.
and if you're not aware that we have other domains, here's a few:
www.AudioZ.se | www.AudioZ.info

i also would like to note that recently i had to drop AudioZ.pro domain, so its future will have nothing to do with the actual AudioZ.


AudioZ Going Private
Audioz is not going private for now, it's still available for unregistered visitors, but if you're registered, you might find special DL links and mirrors that only members can see + you will see less ADS.


Use Reply in Comments
- As you already aware, i was able to implement something i wanted for a long time - so called "Tree Comments".
now when you press Reply on any comment, your reply will be posted below that comment, making it much easier to distinguish conversations.


Subscribe to Comments
- yes, you can even subscribe and be informed when new comments are posted. to reset your subscriptions, go to your profile.


Member's Online Indicator
Something that might not be so obvious - we now have an indication when a member is online.
Now We Really Did it screenshot
As you can see, there's a slight difference in member's name background color when one is online - it's more green


Rating in Comments
Since some people ask about it, I'd like to note that rating set in comments adds 0.3 points to the overall rating, while rating set for post or through Thanks button adds whole 1 point. It wasn't me who set this, but i do believe it's fair.


Residents - Request Reupload!
- Residents before all must read the updated rules, especially the part for Residents / Suppliers.
Here i'll just point out that AudioZ depends on you, because Residents are now responsible for reporting Dead Posts.


New Sections
We have some new sections, like Software > Linux. I really hope it will become popular, because personally i think it's the future.
Also separate section for Kontakt and two new sections in Lounge.


Double Columns View
There's been some debates on this subject, if you need to know why this had to be done, you can read my reply at the forum.


Bookmarks, Like Buttons
You can really help AudioZ just by clicking those +1 buttons and spreading the word!
+1 in the toolbar (under the logo) will share link to main page only, while +1 pushed inside a post will +1 that post.

You can also use built-in Bookmarks module by pressing the Star icon above the Thanks block, once you press it you will notice your bookmarks count increase (under User Profile).



What to expect next
Torrents
...you'll see


Newsletter
- AudioZ very own Newsletter for top producers.


Blogs for Releasers
- For many years I wanted to somehow structure and support P2P teams;
I've decided to implement Blogs at AudioZ so each team could have their own Release Blog, all under one roof.


P.S. I'm sorry if I won't reply to you instantly, i still have a huge ToDo list regarding AudioZ and in addition to all these tasks I'm writing around 60 replies every day since the new AudioZ launched.


P.S.2. Scrolling Issues
Those who have been complaining to scrolling issues, please make sure the page has been loaded completely, or press Esc to cancel loading. Then try to scroll - if you experience delay or stutter, please let me know in comments.

Thank you

Thanks for your tireless work and dedication. The site is a marvel of aesthetics and functionality and it's hard to believe that it just keeps getting better. Really quite an accomplishment considering it's humble beginnings as a newsletter. Look at how far AudioZ has come!!!

Hi Saint!

Congratulations from me as well. I like the new page

Just one thing though; I didn't know if I shall send you a PM or post my suggestion here. I decided to post it here, since you have been answering so many questions. So, no rush! And maybe, some of you other guys can show your approvement by clicking on that green "thumbs up".

So here's my suggestion;

The thing that bothers me is that I have to click on that "plus" button (next to "Samples" e.g.) every time I wan't to see different posts (samples root/sound effects/multi libraries and so on). I know, it's rather trivial but I find it very annoying. So would it be possible to change that so that once you click that "plus" button it stays open until you click on another "plus" button?

I hope you understand what I mean (sorry, I don't know all the technical terms). As I said, it's not that important and if I'm the only one here who seems a little neurotic... just ignore this

A nice day to all of you guys and thanks again for your hard work to this new site. It's awesome

you don't have to aim specifically for the + sign, you can just click the link

  Member 22.04.2013 16

thanks, but I knew that

But that's not what I meant. I'm talking about the navigation that opens after clicking on the + sign or the link and closes again after clicking on another link like for example "loops" or "sound effects". Do you know what I mean? I'm sorry, I don't know how else to explain it...
  Resident 25.04.2012 72 7022

Right-click and open the subfolder in a new tab and later when you close the opened tab your navigation menu will be open, just the way you like it.

I suppose you want all sections to be opened by default, but then even 32' monitor won't fit it
  Member 22.04.2013 16
+2
No, no, no.... Of course not

Only one section at a time. For example when I click on "Software" it would stay open as long as I click any link within that same section ("Software"). It would automatically close as soon as I click on that exactly same section ("Software") OR any other section like "Samples". As soon as I click any other section the previous one closes as the new one opens.

Can I post a link to show you what I mean? Don't worry, it's a well known site to buy computer components
  Administrator 1.01.2004 283 1055
+16259
sure, post it. AudioZ only prohibits sharing links to related web-sites
  Resident 25.04.2012 72 7022
+13379
You can but I already know what you mean and it can be easily accomplished by opening in a new tab. I'd rather SAiNT work with me on the other priority bugs we're having at the moment. This is more of a feature request.

Click on Hardware and then whatever you want

Alternate

@Catalyst; Thanks for the idea but to be honest, this solution is even more annoying

But as I said before; Don't worry. I can live with that. It was only a suggestion. Please, take priority in bugs and other more important things. If you like my suggestion, keep it in mind and do it later

haha, yes indeed, i became insanely good with CSS, thank you for noticing

the site is already fantastic, but if you add torrent option, it would be heaven for me! (specially for someone like me with low speed connection)

and maybe something to consider:
i think the add comment box should move while scrolling.
i mean right now, if i want to add a comment i should scroll back to top of the page after i read all the comments in page...
its not that hard now, but if you could make the add comment box move while scrolling, it will be easier...

anyway, thank you a lot for the hard work and the big big commitment :)

We're trying to work out that bug. Are you saying the add comment box is still coming up on the right for you? For me it's on the bottom of the page. Please leave OS and browser information so we can track this down.

yeah its on the right column, but that is zoom related (like the main page), if i zoom 150% or higher, the page will have just 1 column and the 'add comment' box will be at the bottom, but in this case, i think it should be higher than other boxes (ad, thanks & related), but right now its under all of them...

and for the 2 column layout (normal zoom), the 'add comment' box (and other boxes) are on the right, and i think its actually better that the bottom of the page, but i think it should be flowing in its column in this layout while scrolling...

another bug:
in the zoomed (1 column layout), the main box is aligned centrally, but other boxes (thanks, related topics, add comments and ad) are aligned to the left, i think the should align centrally too.

i am on winodws 8.1 64 bit, full HD resolution and google chrome.

quote by CatalystFor me it's on the bottom of the page.

that's because your monitor's width resolution is lower than 1290px

this is how this page looks on 24' monitor:

the site is already fantastic, but if you add torrent option, it would be heaven for me! (specially for someone like me with low speed connection)

someone with slow connection should be using FFS Premium (or AllDebrid), because with torrents you won't be able to seed, and i know how it feels being capped

i think the add comment box should move while scrolling

good idea! and it does scroll, if your vertical resolution is higher than 1000+px, otherwise the sidebar simply won't fit the screen

i mean right now, if i want to add a comment i should scroll back to top of the page after i read all the comments in page

there will be a Top button soon

Hey thanks for your effort!
the new design isn't performing so well compared to the old one..
a noticeable lag when scrolling down the mainpage is really stressing me out :(
Its very CPU consuming... I have 100 mbit, a macbook pro with 120 GB SSD, 6 gigs of ram and a 2.4 ghz dualcore and still the page lags like shit :( I am using firefox @osx mavericks
It gets worse when you open multiple tabs...

I agree! TORRENTS are in many ways much better than conventional downloads with capped download speeds, hassles, captcha + all other time wasting crap!! PLUS you can always interrupt/pause a download + re-start whenever you want.

Page loading & scrolling is still slow on AudioZ.
