    As you can see, GoogleTVForum.org has gone through a significant upgrade! We hope you like, and as you get used to it you should find it much easier to navigate and all around more fun to use!

    We hope you like the new changes. If you have any questions or notice anything that seems off, please post about it in this thread.

    I have never heard of AndroidTablets.net but the updated software here looks good. I am not sure why member posts count is now shown as messages and as of 1:49 PM CDST, likes received has not been rolled into the new version from the old.

    I noticed that all of the previously embedded YouTube videos no longer show up as embedded videos - instead they just show up as a string of HTML text. (However embedding YouTube videos does work in the same manner if done now with the new Forum format).

    Hope I was clear - the old embedded videos aren't showing up as embedded videos.

    1) With videos posted to the board with the whole video player shown and played from the post itself, it makes page loading very slow. It's probably better t have videos come through as links.

    2) What are "Trophy Points"?

    3) The added forum "AndroidTV" is good.

    Well, I'm sure it will be great once I get used to and any bugs are ironed out. The used to be a link to see all posts since last visit which was useful and now I don't see it :(

    EDIT: All my 'Likes' are gone :(

    "Trophy Points" are awards for achieving certain milestones, for example being a member for certain period of time, or having made a certain number of posts.. It's meant to adda little fun to the forums, but doesn't affect anything otherwise. They don't lead to additional permissions or anything like that.

    There does seem to be an issue where clicking the "Insert Quotes" button sometimes results in the "Upload a File" button action. We're aware of this and looking into it.

    The issue I was experiencing concerning the "Insert Quotes" button is due to a Chrome extension called "FlashBlock". That addon adds a style attribute to the page which causes the problem, so if you're running that particular extension you'll want to disable it..

    I noticed (with the previous version of this forum) - when posting links to articles the link automatically appeared in the posts as the actual title of the article. Now with this new version of the forums - the links don't automatically display as the title of the article - instead the actual URL of the link is displayed.

    It's better if the title can be displayed automatically as it used to be before.
